Robert Tait 1872-1944
Emma LenaTait 1872-1946
Robert worked in Alaska during the Gold Rush and then moved to Spring Coulee where he farmed the land situated on Section 24, TWP. 4, Range 24, West of 4th. Their home was located on the Southwest corner of this property.
Robert and Lena were very hard working people. Lena, who was an immaculate housekeeper, would remove the living room heater from the house in the spring and wouldn't return it until fall.
Lena had two sons from a previous marriage. Both boys lived most of the time on the B.C. coast.
John and Lena left Spring Coulee for a period of time to live on the coast. While they were gone, they rented their land to Les Taylor and then to Chuck Crabtree. When it came time to retire, John and Lena returned to Spring Coulee where they spent their final days.
