I did a number of universal searches for the marriage record, without success. I did find some info on this family that you may or may not have, or is missing or potentially inaccurate on your family tree

When you post, post the link to your person in your family tree. It helps show what information you already have, and helps prevent receiving old or wrong information:

I know you have this information, but posting:
British Columbia records:
George Henry R. Forddred married Jennie Jamieson Shaw on June 1, 1904 in Trout Lake, copy available.
Emma Alice "Firddred", also shown as Emma Alice Rook, marries John James Eden, in Nelson, on July 16, 1901.

George dies March 10, 1953 in Chilliwack, age 83
Jane Jamieson Forddred dies Sep 18, 1941 in Chilliwack, age 78.

The Tacoma City Directories could show the family during the period of 1890 and 1893.

The WA Digital Archives:
-Shows marriage of a Georgina Forddred on 3 July 1895 in Tacoma to a William McKenzie. Hoping to see George as a witness, but wasn't. The 1900 Census shows Georgina born May 1868 in Canada to father born in England, mother in Canada. There is a potential relationship to George Forddred.

-Shows James J military service, shown born in Canmore, Canada. No image.
--Certificate of Marriage...James. See image Wife shown as Noggles, marriage in Raymond, Pacific County (There is also a Pacific [town] in Pierce County).
--Kennor's marriage cert...see image. Shown he was born in South Bend, Washington. His wife was born in Trenton, NJ.

I searched the online database for BC court records (Divorce) with no success. It may have been to long ago to be within the database:

The Tacoma Library has a database of obituaries :
It only shows a James K Forddred, death 15 July 1959, obit page A-7 on 16 July.
