Henry worked as a realtor and dry goods merchant.

On February 24, 1916, in Victoria, British Columbia, Henry signed his attestation paper to serve with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. His occupation was “rancher.” (He gave the year of his birth as 1877, rather than 1869.) In 1917 and 1918 he was on active service.

In 1917, an advertisement to rent 1084 Denman Street appeared in the Vancouver World. Since Henry was with the military then, Nellie probably placed the advertisement.

Henry was able to do only light duties during the war. On February 7, 1919, he was discharged during the general demobilization. (A medal with his name and regimental number was sold on eBay on February 27, 2014.)

It appears that Nellie did not live with Henry for much of their married life in the early 1920s and late 1930s. The directories indicated that she was in Vancouver during those years.

Nellie died in Vancouver on January 6, 1944. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Henry continued to live in the Okanagan until the late 1940s.

In early 1951 he went to live at the Home for the Aged in Vernon, British Columbia. (The provincial government built this facility in 1948. It later became Dellview Hospital until it closed in 1981. Vernon Jubilee Hospital built the Polson Extended Care Unit on the site in 1982.)

In 1930 and 1940, John and Grace were in Los Angeles, California. John was a sound technician in a movie studio.

Grace worked as a nurse.

Irene Elizabeth Paget Seath

Irene Elizabeth Paget Seath was born in Vancouver in June 1909.

It appears that she never married.

In 1927 she was planning to visit her sister, Grace, who was living at 688 Cleary Street in San Francisco, California. (She did not have an immigration visa, so was not able to enter the United States. She may have completed her trip later.)

Lake Country, British Columbia; https://www.lakecountry.bc.ca/en/living-in-our-community/neighbourhoods.aspx:

The District of Lake Country was incorporated in 1995. It is made up of four neighbourhoods, or wards, which have their own rich histories and cultural life.

The area was populated by the Okanagan First Nations for centuries before settlers arrived in the late 1800s. We believe the first contact with these people was in 1700 by the Hudson’s Bay Company. Carr’s Landing, Okanagan Centre, Oyama and Winfield were settled between 1890 and1906 due to the growing agricultural industries.

Carr’s Landing

The Interior Salish were the first residents of the area and called Carr’s Landing Cus-in-so-nook, meaning Place of Fickle Women. The early pioneers called it Sunnywold.

Andrew Carr and his wife Agnes built their home, with the Carr’s Landing wharf built below it, just north of where Jealous Fruits is today. Settlers such as the Carrs, Thorlaksons and Gibsons farmed close to the lake and ranchers like Joseph Cools ran cattle into the Charolais area.

The small Sunnywold School opened off Commonage Road and became the centre of the new community. For decades, while Vernon, Kelowna, and Winfield grew rapidly, Carr’s Landing remained a quiet, rural, farming community.

Coral Beach was one of the first areas to be subdivided in the early 1960’s, and much development has occurred since then.

Dellview Hospital, MemoryBC; https://www.memorybc.ca/dellview-hospital: “Originally built in 1948 as a Provincial Home for the Aged, Dellview was a special care facility for persons suffering from mental disorders as a result of the aging process. Dellview closed in 1982 [sic] and most patients were transferred to Polson Special Extended Care wing at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.”
