Roy would be more than happy to post anything from their family

From Miriam,
While looking for stuff regarding my mother I found another small black book that could have been written by Caroline Taylor with a few entries from November 1919-April 16, 1920.

"February1, 1920
Rev. S. Oleson preached here today. He christened the three youngest children, Sigurveig Evely , Johns little girl and Theodor Evan [Roy's father Ted] and Caroline Ingebjorg. No one came except the Christophersons and Mr and Mrs Bryjolfson and Isdal and his little girl.Suppose people are afraid of the whooping cough..... Isn't that a find that our parents were christened at the same service?

"In the photo I think it goes like this: Caroline: 3rd row, 3rd from right; Evelyn: 2nd row, 4th from right; Kassie: 2nd row, 2nd from right; Helen (mom): 2nd row, 5th from right."

Ed Fader was my first contact (in class photos lower down) in that area, who informed me of Ytranes.
Webmaster does not recall his parents ever mentioning 95% of what he know now (on this website), or of our cousins in BC.

Caroline, Evelyn, and Kassie were Veiga were John's children. When Mom was 5 (about 1928), the girls lived just down the road from Veiga and Tom. Dorie had a small house there too. There were also some cabins near the Dawe's and that's where Mom's family stayed in Crescent Beach. It's not a very long road and I believe it's now called, 'Christopherson Rd'. The girls played together and went to the same school, but only the school teacher stayed with the Dawe's.
