some local stories about him I received
Lived just east of Cedarvale in early days - prospected, may have
sold some claims as he bought house in Prince Rupert and property in
Terrace, an acre plus on Mills Ave. May have later subdivided it
into 8 lots (just was someone thought) - - Was told he did a lot of
walking - later years lost a leg, then didn't go out much. Very
independent and his neighbour kids (on Mills) loved to hear his
stories. When he was prospecting on the mountains, he would carry
his bedding in his pack - when he got tired he would spread his
bedding and have a nap.
Bert, his Cedarvale friend said he often saw him with pork chops
that had turned green (would keep them under the house, coolest
place in those days), would boil them a bit then fry them. Also
Bert decided to clean his black bathtub - it was white after

am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
