Rather, all of the following text will be revised on-the-fly or added to at any time.

Ida Beryl [Roy believes this should be Ila Beryl, not Ida according to handwritten note by Carolines grand daughter on image 3205]
Update: July 9, 2012: Roy now believes who ever wrote on the back of a postcard (IMG_SCAN_3205) was incorrect. Ila is incorrect. It should state "Ida Badger", daughter of Thomas and Isabella TAYLOR Badger married Jonas Bjarnason. All text references will be changed to reflect Ida, not Ila.

Ida Beryl Badger was born 1900, lived with her parents until she married Jonas Bjarnason in 1920. Jona's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kristjan Bjarnason with their two sons, Barney, seven years old and Jonas, two years old came to Glenboro from Iceland in 1902.

Jonas worked as a carpenter for many years, caretaker of the Glenboro School from 1941-1955, caretaker of the Glenboro Rink for 2 1/2 years when it was completed in 1949.
Jonas and Ida moved to Vancouver, BC in 1955. Jonas passed away Jan 19, 1959 and Ila now resides in a Sr. Citizens residence. They had two sons,
Barney was born in 1921, educated in Glenboro School, later worked in farms, then the telephone CO., and in October 1942, joined the Royal Canadian Armored Corps. - Calgary Tank-1st Division, serving in Italy, Germany and Holland. Discharged in 1945, spent some time at home, then moved to Vancouver, BC, married Helen Elleson in 1951 and have two sons, Wayne and Brian, born in 1957 and 1959. [note: Roy was born the same time]

Roy cannot recall speaking to Hank about these photos. I doubt he would remember Isabella. Looking at the possible date this photo was taken, Roy believes uncle Sig (who probably wrote on the postcard) might of mistaken Isabella Taylor BADGER of Ida. Ida being born 1900, this would mean the girl in these photos would of been 8-12 years old, being 1908-1912. These photos look like they might of been taken in the late 1800's. Just food for thought.

From cousin Miriam Westereng
Edie Tench [Badger] did live in kelowna. she died at least five five years ago. my mother would talk to her or go to her place when she came here. They interviewed her husband graham on the cbc radio here in kelowna. Think he was about 100. Bev Bolick [cousin] might know more about them because her mother also was friends with the badger family -- think Bev or Val might have gone to the same school as Orva.

"She (Kristin 'Stina' was a member of the Dorcas Society, which was established by a group of young girls and women during WWI, to send parcels and knitting to the soldiers who had gone overseas from the district. Later..."
Could the photo be of the Dorkas Family, the Badger family or the Dorcas Society?
Notice 4th girl from the left identified by Hank Christopherson as Ida Pearl Badger, at a younger age and the far right as possibly Isabella herself at an older age.

Email to Miriam:
I have a photo Vern translated from Icelandic said is be the Dorkas family in Photo 3512. I thought it might be a knitting group except that is Dorcas Society. This looks like a family, not a sewing group. Then I noticed one gal who I believe Hank identified as a Badger. She is on the Christopherson Clan page where Hank is about 6 and she is standing to the right of Lilja Christopherson. The hair and face match, although 3512 is a bit faded, I darkened it. [The photos has Kjartan Christopherson's family with Lilja, then Ida or Ila Badger according to Hank. Looks like a match to number four above. - added by Roy APR 2012]

Anyway, it led me to look up the Badgers in the Heritage book as I know the Hearns and Badgers are related to Caroline Taylor Christopherson. I am still getting all those straight in my mind. I believe Photo 3512 is of the Badger family. Yet it says on the back ? Photo of Dorkas family?

So Isabella Badger who married Thomas, was Isabella Taylor, Caroline's half-sister who was William and Eliza's child. She moved in with the christophersons when Eliza passed away sudden. She loved Caroline.

To get to the point, Isabella, who passed away in 1940, her daughter, Edith Isabell Carson retired...guess where...Kelowna, BC. Small world, eh?

Vancouver connection
Ila Beryl Taylor Bjarnason married Jonas and we have a photo during the marriage in 1920. See Image 3537. In '55 they moved to Vancouver to be with their sons, Barney and Ray Bjarnason.

According to Nelson Gerrard, he speculated Photo 3512 might be a sewing circle referred to as "Dorkas Society" but he did not see the photo.
Dorcas Society (and there were many) derives its name from a Biblical figure, Dorcas, whose claim to fame was her skill with needle and thread... I recall a song in Sunday School about Dorcas
who "had a needle... etc."

Come into our Heritage book scanned copies
PG 339 - William and Kristin Christopherson Family
"She (Kristin 'Stina' was a member of the Dorcas Society, which was established by a group of young girls and women during WWI, to send parcels and knitting to the soldiers who had gone overseas from the district. Later..."
Could the Dokas Family be the Dorcas Society?

From Erla Wankling, may 08, 2012,
I would think it must be the Dorcas Society, because I recognize a few of the ladies that I think were members.
2nd from the left is Jenny Christopherson (Hernit's daughter)
6th from left, Lauga Helgason Johannesson
and the last lady on the right is Stina Christopherson, wife of Bill (William) Christopherson.
