A family tree enthusiast for a number of years, I have found many people to have been of assistance to me. I enjoy the opportunity to post what information I have, in the event there are others interested in the same families. I am a member of RAOGK for my home town area in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada

Ole & Anna Skrove Hello, I just looked up my information on Ancestry and had the death certificates there. Both Ole & Anna were buried at Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Vernon B.C. Canada. Ole Skrove was born 19 May 1879 Brandon, Douglas, Minnesota and died 8 Mar 1968 Vernon B.C. Anna Hjelsing Skrove was born 31 Jan 1887 USA & died 25 Dec 1964 Vernon B.C. Canada. Hope this helps. Thank you, Diane Wheeler
Re: Ole & Anna Skrove Thank you, that would be great. I can get the dates for you if you want. You can email me at email@example.com or I can send the information on this site. My husband says they were buried up on the hill. Sorry, I don't know the name of the graveyard but it may be the same as their son Gordon Skrove. Diane Wheeler
Sarah Felker Sargent I've added a note to her memorial clarifying the fact that her interment at McKee's is based on an educated guess, rather than definitive proof. If new evidence comes to light, I will adjust her memorial accordingly.
It's a shame about Jean's book. I had a copy and used information from it as if it were well-researched. Over the years, I found so many discrepancies in it that I eventually gave the book away. :)
Sarah Felker Sargent If you look at the death record very carefully, you will notice that the deaths on the left side of the ledger took place in Arthur, BUT, the deaths on the right hand side took place in West Garafraxa Twp. (where the family lived). That's why I uploaded the death record to her memorial, in order to clarify where she died--West Garafraxa Twp.
Sarah Felker Sargent There may also be information in Jean Hutchinson's book on the history of West Garafraxa, although I don't have a copy here to check right now. I also know that there are several errors in the book.
