I am looking for family of William Tarves,Tarvis. He was born in Scotland cica 1811, Married Isabella Menagh of Belfast, Ireland. They immigrated to Ashburn, Ont. (north of Whitby) They had 4 sons William, Robert, John and James.
John was a mason by trade. He married Harriet Crayford.

I have found the birth record of Wm Tarvas, in Pitsligo, Aberdeen, Scotland in 1811 son of James Tarvas and Barbara Milne. Do you have any info?

You could take a peek at the British Columbia Vital Statistics site
http://www.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/textual/governmt/vstats/v_ev...

or this one
http://aabc.bc.ca/aabc/bcguid9.html if you have any idea of where in BC your family might have emigrated to.

BC was and still is a LONG way from Ontario. Any ideas of what might have brought one of your Tarves this far west?

Wm Bruce Tarvis b 1812 Scotland >Ashburn Ont Canada. d Dec 12 1883
Wife: Isabella Menagh b 1825 Ireland>Whitby Ont Canada, prob abt 1850. d Sept 3 1912
Both are buried @ Ashburn Cemetery Whitby Twp W, Durham Co Ont Ca
Children:
Wm b Jan 16 1855 Ont
James b 1864 Ont
John b Nov 13 1865 Ont
Robert Menagh b 1847 Ireland

The question was asked, "Why would the young Tarvis men go to BC?" I think the answer may be the Caraboo gold rush around Barkersville BC.

I have Isabella's funeral card and am a decendent of Robert

I have a photo of Isabella in a book about the history of the Whitby area.
I don't believe they have a headstone - I live close by and have visited the cemetery.
Please email as I would like to share info.
