Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 15, 1877
Portadown
County Armagh, Northern Ireland
Death: Apr. 2, 1966
Victoria
British Columbia, Canada

Son of William John Barriskill and Agnes Jane Little, born in Portadown, County Armagh, Northern Ireland. Barriskills have lived on the family farm for over 120 years.

Jim married his first wife, Elizabeth Jane Whitla, in Ireland in 1910 and they immigrated to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in 1913 where they lived until Elizabeth's death in 1921.

He and his second wife, Elizabeth Mary Grier, also made their home there for many years while travelling around the world including three trips back to Ireland.

Two more Grier sisters moved from County Donegal to Montreal and then Victoria in the 1920s, followed by one of their brothers resulting in six family members at Royal Oak Burial Park.

Jim's brother John Joseph Barriskill immigrated to New York City in 1909 and spent most of his life there before moving to California.

In Ireland Jim was the Assistant Manager for a Linen Factory. After immigrating he spent the bulk of his career with Imperial Oil.
