Dennis Tulley Christopher

aka Dennis Charles Christopher
b- May 9, 1881 in Almer, Malahide Township, Elgin Co., ON
d- Sept 2, 1972 in Prince George Regional Hospital, Prince George BC, age 91
buried in Terrace City Cemetery, Terrace BC
living at 5122 Mills St in Terrace before he died.

Early Prospector in the Cedarvale area

Known as a great blacksmith

some local stories about him I received

Lived just east of Cedarvale in early days - prospected, may have sold some claims as he bought house in Prince Rupert and property in Terrace, an acre plus on Mills Ave.  May have later subdivided it into 8 lots (just was someone thought) - -  Was told he did a lot of walking - later years lost a leg, then didn't go out much.  Very independent and his neighbour kids (on Mills) loved to hear his stories.  When he was prospecting on the mountains, he would carry his bedding in his pack - when he got tired he would spread his bedding and have a nap.

Bert, his Cedarvale friend said he often saw him with pork chops that had turned green (would keep them under the house, coolest place in those days), would boil them a bit then fry them.  Also Bert decided to clean his black bathtub - it was white after cleaning it! 

Interesting to talk to the people who knew him - Bert - early Cedarvale resident and Edna, ex Mills neighbour

  He had a girlfriend in Prince Rupert called "Eskimo Mary".

in Glen Adelaide, East Assiniboia, NWT

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page from Facebook, Blogs, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
