TODAY IN HISTORY: George and Grace’s Wedding

1909 George, Grace and Grace Fowlie STOUGHTONGeorge Patterson Ronald Taylor Fowlie and Grace Victoria Louise Ronald were married on April 19, 1907 in what was then called New Hope, Northwest Territories but soon became Stoughton, Saskatchewan. We have no marriage photo (yet?) for them but this photo taken in 1909, with my mother Elizabeth Grace Victoria just a babe in arms, is the closest thing to it.

Grace Ronald’s brother Roderick was homesteading in the Gap View and Grace came for a visit, at which time she met George, and ended up spending the rest of her life there.

George and Grace apparently had a child John in 1908 who didn’t survive. That meant Grace was the eldest of their 9 children: Grace, George (Geordie), Bill, Lily, WInnie, Ruby, Gordon, Isobel and Joy.
