Thank you for posting my mother Bell's portrait. Her picture was taken in Prince George, BC on May 12, 2004, her 84th birthday. Bell was born, 1920, in Hansard, BC, 3rd of 9 children born to Margaret Burke (nee GOWDIE) 1.BARDEN 2. BOTRAKOFF. Bell, 21, arrived in Prince Rupert to marry Dec 31, 1941 and became a member of Prince Rupert's 'over 75 in the city more than 50 years' group. Life member of the Rebecca Lodge. UFAWU. Bell wrote poetry and could sing. 'Bell and Harry raised 4 sons in Prince Rupert. Sadly Bell passed away in Prince George, 3 1/2 months prior to her 94th birthday. Still missed, greatly loved.

RE: addition of names Macrae
I have just suggested a further revision on-line to you, based on further digging:
Husband of Clara Heather. She also married Fred Dunphy.
Son of Roderick MacRae and Margaret Mary Jane Macrae.
Father of 3 daughters, Patricia (m. Conrad Goddard), Derene (m. Earle Phillips) and Kathleen (m. Mike Woodhouse).

No, I haven't been able to determine any places of burial of Christopher's immediate family, above.

The MacRae accident is unusual as Anyox was abandoned in 1935 and his 1960 death there is the only one in the area in the ensuing years.

I show the following Fair View interments for Anyox deaths:
Alexander Newlands Davie # 52640011;
Christopher MacRae: # 52676769;
Charles Edward Frederick Wells: # 52658978.

Thanks for your communication.

RE: Edgar, Guy and Clara Davis
Val, would you please clarify for me these dates of Edgar, Guy and Clara Davis. I have Edgar, son, birthdate Mar. 26 1936; Guy, father, 1909-1981 and Clara, mother (1871-1930)as per your request to update their information.
Thank you,

Edgar Guy (son) was born Mar 25 (not 26), 1936 (as per BC Archives:

Guy (father) - Mar 1, 1909 to May 28, 1981 (

Clara (mother?) - death at Prince Rupert on Jan 26, 1930 at age 59 (BC Archives index). Maybe not mother because she was much older than Guy.
