The "Soo" is probably referring to Sault St. Marie" I will take a closer look. But there is a bridge there that some men drowned while building. The reference to Dunbar Dredges (Dunbar and Sullivan Dredging Co) might also be a clue. The Dunbar and Sullivan Dredging Company of Cleveland, Ohio was founded in 1844. Originally headquartered in Buffalo, New York, this company also called Detroit, Michigan home before relocating to Cleveland. Subsidiary operations have been located in Duluth, Minnesota as well. Since Sault St. Marie. If you follow this link below you will see they make reference to the "Soo Line". Hope this helps!

Subject: [ONTARIO] help locating inquest or death record
> My James BROCKLEHURST worked as a cranesman for Dunbar Dredges and through newly found info, James drown in Canadian waters at the "Soo" about Oct. 6, 1891. I have been unable to find the particulars on what happened. The newspaper didn't give any details. I made contact with the Historical Collections of the Great Lakes at the Bowling Green State University in Ohio. They had nothing on file. His death wasn't recorded in Michigan and I can't find it in Canada either... Wouldn't an inquest have to been done? And why can't a death record be found? Can someone with knowledge on the subject help me get to this information? James lived in Port Colborne in the winter & is buried there. Thank you in advance!
