The Vernon Archive has a photo taken in
Calgary some time before 1905 but they think before the turn of the
century. It includes a man I am interested in who went from Calgary
with a party to the Finlay in 1886. The party had nine men and this
photo only seven. Names have been written on the photo as follows:
Borne, Purchas, Riddle, Morgan, L Christie, J H Christie (the man I am
interested in), and H B B Hall. As you are aware the spellings are
always questionable. I did a quick Google search which shows a lot of
Riddle/Riddel names in Calgary and also a Riddel who chaired a cemetery
survey. I believe you mentioned working on that survey so if you know
her would you please see if she knows of any ancestors who were on the
Finlay around that time? It is not worth doing a lot of work on but
seemed to be a possibility which could be easily checked out.
