Aunt Maggie married John Wadge. They had four daughters. Margaret is in Liberia, Africa, Mary and Jean live in Calgary, and lsobel in San Diego, California. Aunt Maggie and Uncle John are buried in Vancouver, British Columbia.

My mother Elizabeth taught school for ten years prior to her marriage to my father, William Kenneth McKenzie, of Rapid City. There were six chil- dren. Kenneth, the eldest, is deceased, Donald and Maude live in Los Angeles, California, Gladys lives at Haney, British Columbia, Nora (Mrs. John Lane) and myself, John Tully McKenzie, live in Brandon. My mother was the last living member of this pioneer Tully family. In her later years she lived with her daugh- ter Maude in Los Angeles and passed away on her 95th birthday November 5, 1968. Mother often spoke of the early days at Strathclair and the good friends and neighbors they had there. This tie or connection has always made me con- scious of the Strathclair-Elphinstone district. My mother was very fond of poetry and I would like to dedicate these few lines l have heard her recite so many times, to the memory of the Tully family.

They lived for those who loved them For those who knew them true.

For the Heaven that smiled above them And awaited their spirit too.

For the cause that needed assistance, For the wrong that needed resistance. For the future in the distance,

And the good that they could do.

ā€” Respectfully submitted; J. Tully McKenzie
