Gray Family Register Page 3
When my grandmother Isabel Alexander (m/s Jaffrey) was nearing the end of her days she decided to “redd up” her affairs. Following on family tradition she set a bonfire. However when it came to burning the Alexander family bibles, she hesitated, fearful perhaps of the accounting shortly to come As it happened her son Robert and his wife Mary came home on a visit from their adopted country of New Zealand and she prevailed on Robbie to do the needful So risking his immortal soul to please his mother, he burnt the bibles but without telling her he removed the frontispiece pages and took them back to N Z with him
In the course of time he passed them on to his son George and in turn they were left to George’s widow Freda who saved them for me There were two bibles involved, one belonging to John Alexander and his wife Jannet Morrison, and the other to son William Alexander and his wife Isabella Brown.
Uncle Robbie continued the tradition as best he was able, adding his own New Zealand family in turn

My Dear Sister
My Dear Sister
In 1922 she wrote home to her sister-in -law in Turriff giving a graphic description of the journey and life as a settler in the Peace River country This letter is quite outstanding In it she describes a fall through an open trapdoor.

Jeff Gray provides this background ti the letter:
"Please find enclosed a copy of the “My Dear Sister” letter. Sadly Christian Howie nee Jaffray died in the winter after she wrote the letter They think she never recovered from the fall through the trap door
The letter was sent to her sister in law in Turriff and if memory serves the letter was with a branch of the Howie family who went to New Zealand and settled in Masterton I think Janice Morris (b 1954) had it transcribed and sent me a copy.
Christian comes down very hard on her son David’s wife and our correspondent George Gour in Falher is a direct descendant His mother Elsie is the last of David’s children She is living in a residential home nearby and most interested in the correspondence It is her regret that she never did make it to the old country to see for herself.
I looked up Falher Alberta on Google earth a very neat place on grid plan set amid endless farm plains I suppose I was looking for log cabins and early settlements but it was nothing like that.
When my sister Olive was a child her grandmother (Isa in the dear sister letter) got her to address her letters to Canada and the name Medicine Hat stuck in her mind In her old age she used to ask me and wonder aloud “Who lived in Medicine Hat?”
A most memorable name."
