The Quesnel Genealogical Society has recorded all known deaths amd burial sites from Stanley in the east [just outside of Barkerville] to Nazko and beyond in the west to Woopecker in the north [a few miles north of Hixon] and in the south to approx just north of Mclease Lake . This excludes all First Nations Burial sites but includes private burial grounds, memorial parks, Church Cemeteries and historic burial grounds. Photos have been take of all grave markers and maps made with land lot numbers used for site identifiction for private sites. Some are no longer used buts others are in use and the information is being updated, to keep it current. At this time the Quesnel and District Cemetery [1952] has not been done, but the city has an index of this site and a map, so we can do lookups for it. We hope to do work on this in the near future.
Information on any death and or burial is appreciated, as we are sure that their is more out their that we have not located to date.
Thank you
Kathie

Thanks for replying regarding Philip & Nancy Grinder. I do have their death certificates. Just can't get any information about their son James Grinder. I don't know what his middle intial was, and other family members don't know what happened to him. Any suggestions would be gladly accepted.

I note that James is listed in the BC Vital Records Index for babtisms and that he was baptised at St Joseph's Mission in William Lake where his siblings seem to have been baptised as well. A copy of the baptismal record may provide a middle name if he was given one. Many children were given additional names at the time of baptism. The records for the Mission appear to be in the Catholic Church Archives in Kamloops.

Surnames: Polleys, Gibson
William Polleys - Quesnelle Forks

William Polleys left Moncton, NB about 1876 and became invoved "in mining in Cariboo, BC on the North Fork of the Quesnelle - putting in a wing dam". (Moncton Times 3 June 1882)
BC Archives has a record of him as a director in the South Fork Hydraulic and Mining Company. He is also listed in the 1893 and 1895 Quesnelle Forks Directories.
His wife Isabella (nee Gibson) died at Moncton in 1907. She is not listed in the 1901 Census of New Brunswick.
Could you check cemetery records to see if William Polleys died at Quesnel or Quesnel Forks?
Thanks
Gary in Nova Scotia

Hi Gary, Deaths that occured in B.C. will be registered in the Provine of B.C.
Searching the Provincial Archive of B.C. Vital Events Index
online:

Searching Automated Genealogy -
1901 Census BC - 0 POLLEYS
B.C. 1911
1911 Census for B.C. does not show the POLLEYS surname

Cheers, Stella

Hi, All Deaths that occur in the Province are registered in the Province.
Provincial Archive of B.C. Vital Events Index - Deaths 1872-1987 -can be searched - for the location - Quesnel without a personal name - perhaps may help with the project -
though there appear to be 3282 names listed. 329 pages. first death for Quesnel Thomas BROWN 1878

Cheers & Good Luck, Stella
