Hmm, I'm not sure - it's possible though. I have that Wray Melvin Garbutt was born to Solomon Garbutt and Elizabeth Euphemia/Duphemia/Euphemia Parking (last name may not be correct, unsure of middle name spelling. It's possible that middle name is actually the last name too - unclear). Melvin was born in 1889 in Woodstock, Ont. He died in 1950 in Salmon Arm, BC, after living in the area for 43 years. Makes since for Velma's birthplace. Most of my family lives in Salmon Arm - which I believe corrolates to your 'Solmon Arms, BC.'

My family knows that Wray had siblings, but Wray had a falling-out with them regarding the care of their parents, so he never spoke a word of them to his children or wife.

At first I didn't think we matched, but because of Salmon Arm/Solmon Arms, I believe we do!!! It's also possible that Elspet is interchangable with Elizabeth. I know that both Solomon and Elizabeth are buried in Salmon Arm in unmarked graves.

Please contact me through my email address listed if you would like to know more. I would also be curious in hearing about Wray's (possible) sisters.

We may be on to something!!!
