************************
In the days of old, when men were bold, when
Women were hard to find, and, harder to hold
A great love story began to unfold.
An Icelandic boy name of Sigurður C.
Met Lovely Caroline on the lone prairie
By the banks of Nettley Creek, they would wed
The sky for a roof, straw for a bed
Together, they were very happy
Thats how we got my pappy
Now that brings it down to me
Another step in the family tree
Now, you may realize
How lucky you were to win this prize
Because, if it weren't for dear-dear Grandpappy
It would be impossible to be so happy.
by grandson Sigurður t. Christopherson
Fathers Day. June 20 1993
We have gathered together at the home of Dottie Christopherson Cartwright
in celebration of golden memories of our very special forefathers. We are truly blessed.
Sig C

Andres and Emma Stoneson Oddstad were married in a Norwegian Lutheran church, at 1555 11th Ave E, Vancouver, because of Stone's wife's ancestry, Vern has that from the actual record from "Vital Statistics BC". So Vern speculates that Kjartan's wedding was in the same church and one of "unknown persons 2 and 3" may be a minister of the church and the photo may be set at the church in Vancouver. Stone's wife's name on the record is Augborg, not Ingibjorg

RESEARCH/FORMAT: Freda Anderson and daughter Emma (Sigurdson) are identified and I assumed that top right is Chris Anderson; but maybe looks like a female. Charlie Oddstad's daughter Gwennie/Gwen/Gudny is [front row, right], and is in the list. I think Freda and Chris Anderson are in another photo of yours at an earlier date: Image 3436 and Chris's head extracted. Emma married a neighbor Oscar Sigurdson; I have seen his name in the directories. Anderson's farm was NE quarter of section 20; Charlie and his father had SE quarter 20.

The wedding day was 17 April 1914; Andres and Emma were yet to be married, 23 Aug 1914, so not yet starting their family.


Verns great grandfather Jon Sveinbjornson, and son Charlie had the quarter section SW of Kris and Frida, east of the present day park

1555 11th Ave E Vancouver
Looking for Vancouver Lutheran Churches. This was interesting and same year as May 17, 1914 Marriage.
/*1914*/
/May 23, 1914 the Komagata Maru enters Vancouver harbour filled with would-be South Asian immigrants. These people were forbidden to disembark and the Komagata Maru and its unwanted human cargo are forced to leave Vancouver harbour on July 23, 1914./
/August 4, 1914 Canada declares war on Germany. *So many Vancouver men enlist that the population drops by 30,000*. Over half of those who leave are wounded or killed. During the war a total of 55,000 men leave BC to fight./

Possibly the same church
On the above link they do mention a similar church
/*1894*/
/Pattern maker Alf Mattinson builds a house at 800 Keefer. From 1935 to 1955 this building is used to house the Montreal Bakery run by Lucien and Cecilia Zanon. Also in this year the *original small Lutheran Church at Prior and Jackson* is built to serve the Norwegian and Swedish communities.
