If you are visiting this site for the first time, Welcome! If any of this research can assist you toward learning of your past, Great! Should we be related in some way, it would be nice to hear from you, I always enjoy meeting "long lost" relatives.

This is all of my research in one location, though I do have more "blanks" to fill in. 

Take care everyone and I hope all those whom are "long lost" relatives will let me know you are out there, so you won't be "long lost" anymore! ;)

Obituaries:Gwendolyn Boymer (Montgomery)
Posted by: Melody Macmillan on Mar 25 2016 11:57

Gwendolyn (Gwen) Bertha Boymer (Montgomery)left this life February 29, 2016 at the age of 88 to join her husband, Rev. Tolie Albert Boymer and her Lord and Saviour.

Gwen was born in St. Catherine’s, Ontario to Rev. James and Mabel Montgomery in 1927. She attended Bible College and secretarial school in Ontario before marrying Tolie in 1954. Together they traveled across Canada ministering, until they settled in Oyen, Alberta where they raised 5 daughters—Laurel, Lucille, Starlene, Melody, and Juanita. They moved to Sicamous in 1974.

Two of Gwen’s favourite jobs while working as a bookkeeper/secretary were at Scory Motors in Oyen and the high schools in Enderby and Sicamous. She loved playing various instruments, singing/directing choirs and teaching bookkeeping. Her favourite pastime was knitting.

After the death of her husband, Gwen moved to Vancouver Island where she resided until her passing.

She will be dearly missed by her daughters, grand and great grandchildren, friends and all those she touched during her life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Alzheimers Society.

A graveside service will be held at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Vernon, BC on March 7, 2016 @ 11:00 am with refreshments afterwards at the Vernon Gospel Chapel, 4106 Pleasant Valley Rd., Vernon.

Announcements:Centennial Family Reunion Lodging
Posted by: Virnelda Lewis on Mar 11 2013 18:02

FAMILY REUNION…..100 years

2013 marks the 100th year of family gatherings for the descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.

In June 1913, Josiah McIntosh, Jr., known as Joe, caring for his 102 year old Father, Josiah McIntosh, Sr., conceived the idea of a "family gathering". Josiah Sr., being a former slave, had seen families destroyed, split up and denied the opportunity of being together. He constantly emphasized to Joe Jr., the importance of family knowing and supporting one another. This emphasis encouraged Joe Jr,. and his wife, Mattie Ruffin McIntosh to call his and her siblings, their families; 14 of their children (some grown-up) and their families to their home in Jefferson, Texas to share in a feast and fellowship. This feast and fellowship began a celebration that has continued for 100 years for the Joe Jr., clan and some of the clan of his siblings.

This year, 2013, the Joe Jr., clan, as our ancestors did that first gathering in 1913, is calling together as "one big family" all descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.

Our family will commemorate the 100th celebration
