David 'Dave' Ennis
Pop-up Pedigree

Note*: Please read the letter in Robert Henry 'Bob' Ennis' notes beforecontinuing to read these notes, thank you. David 'Dave Ennis was the 4th born to Robert and Frances Ennis. Dave and Bob Ennis left Grenfell, Saskatchewan in 1888 for the west coast. Theyspent some time in Seattle, Washington (we think) with their sister,Frances Jane (Ennis) Coy and her husband, Leverett David Coy, but finallylocated briefly in Nanaimo, British Columbia, before moving on toCumberland, British Columbia, where they started building houses for amining company. They would buy one lot and slit it and build two houseson it. (see the letter Bob for more details). They left Cumberland in 1897 for the Yukon, the year before the stampedeto the gold fields. Large food supplies plus a few basic mining toolswere packed for their long and hazardous trip. A boat took them fromVancouver Island to Skagway, Alaska. There were two routes from therebut Dave and Bob chose the Chilkoot Pass, which had a summit of 3000 feethigh with the last 3 miles being almost straight up. It took many tripsup a slope of snow and ice that generally rose at an angle between 30 and40 degrees. Those climbing dared not stop to rest, for it might beseveral hours before they could get back in line. Dave and Bob lost twomules over a cliff and of course all the supplies that were loaded onthem. The prospectors faced blizzards, snow-blindness, frost bite andstarvation. At Lake Bennett, they stopped to build their own boat thatwould take them down the chain of lakes to the Yukon which was 600 mileslater to Dawson City. For this task, trees were cut down, sawed by handwith a crosscut saw into lumber to build their boat. Yukon, being awindy country, made it ideal to have a sail on their craft. They arrivedin Dawson after a very long trip with many hardships. The trip took fromthe 2nd of April to the 29th of June, 1894 according to their diary. Dave and Bob filed a claim on Gold Run Creek, built their cabin andprepared for the long winter to come. They had to hunt for their meatsupplies but hunting was unpredictable so sometimes they would have noluck for days and then other times would have too much so took theirsurplus meat to Dawson, a distance of fifty miles, to trade for othersupplies. Food items were very scarce but by trading, were able to getby. They had to spend a great deal of time cutting wood for winterfuel. Wood was used to thaw the ground in search for gold and as alsothe source of power that took the paddle wheelers up and down the YukonRiver, so the population of Dawson grew to 40,000. The hills became barein a 40 mile radius and the men had to search for trees in more distantplaces. During the long cold dark winters, they dug out the gravel. In thespring when it thawed out, it was put through the sluice boxes with waterrunning over it. The gold settled to the bottom while the mud and rockwas washed away. Although Dave and Bob located at No. 6 Gold Run Creek,by reading files in the land titles office at Whitehorse, we find thatthey worked many claims and had workers hired to help them. In 1902 theyworked with a modern steam 'jenny'. Gold Run Creek is about fifty milesfrom Dawson so through necessity a village sprang up the name Granville. This village was serviced by a stage coach twice weekly in the summerbut is now is a ghost town. Transportation in the Yukon winters wasdifficult but Dave had five malamute dogs for his sled team. Dave, a keen supporter of the Conservative Party, was prominentlymentioned at one time as a candidate for the Yukon Council. In 1905, Dave returned to Grenfell, Saskatchewan to take Barbara McDonellback to Dawson. She could not leave sooner as she had to take of hermother until she passed away. Dave took his sister, Madge in as well.Dave and Barbara were married in Dawson by the Rev. George Pringle, afamous clergyman. Madge Ennis and Robert McDonell were their witnesses. Barbara and Madge had hip-length Gold chains made of nuggets that theypicked up to size from the sluice boxes. Many fine pieces of gold andivory jewelry have been passed down through the generations. The ivoryjewelry was made from mastodon tusks that were found in the mines. Ofthe three children that were born in the far north, Minnie Matilda Ennis(1st born) was born in the cabin at Gold Run, while Robert and Alfredwere born in Dawson City. The family left Dawson in October, 1912 on the last boat out beforefreeze-up to make their home in Kelowna, British Columbia. Davepurchased a big house made from cement blocks and his first new car.Since he had never driven a car, he was practicing his driving in thepasture field. Just as he thought his driving was nearing perfection, hewaved to the family as he was passing but in doing so he lost control ofhis car and ran into a fence. Dave decided then and there that hisdriving career was over and left the car just where it was. Before Dave left Dawson, some crafty real estate men sold him twentyacres of orchard land at Kelowna, British Columbia for a good price.They worked hard to pick the rocks and plant fruit trees but it never didproduce fruit so with the expense of land taxes and water taxes, theylost the property, but to this day, it never has grown fruit (1979). After moving to Kelowna, Frances Isabelle, 4th born and Ellen Bertha'Helen', 5th born and in time the family grew up. Minnie worked in thepost office until she went to Anyox in northern British Columbia to bemarried. This being a northern outpost, the trip was uncertain and shearrived two days late. Archie, her husband-to-be, met the boat in rathera poor mood and announced that they had to be married immediately becausethe minister was already late for his next appointment. Robert andAlfred became butchers, Frances a nurse and Ellen a clerk. After coming to Kelowna, Dave ran a feed store which he had stocked fromhis previous home town of Grenfell, Saskatchewan. When he sold thatstore, gold fever once again lured him into the creeks. For a shorttime, he mined on Likely and Cedar Creeks in the Caribou region. In hisgolden years, Dave's activities were hampered by a severe heart condition. A surprising fact is that although Dawson City was known to be thewildest country north of San Francisco, Dave and Bob were both strictlyteetotallers. Photos of Dave and Barbra and their family can be found in theirindividual scrapbooks. This account is printed in the book, ' Ennis History ', privatelypublished in 1979 by Jean Agnes (Ferguson) Smith and is found on pages 88through 94 Photos of Dave and Barbra and their family can be found intheir individual scrapbooks in this Family Tree. 1998.

Note*: Gone to her Reward - Ellady Ennis Neepawa Press, March, 1909 Neepawa, Manitoba On Saturday afternoon, March 13, 1909, Ellady Ennis, beloved wife of Wn.A. McLaughlin, bade farewell to her earthly friends with the joyousanticipation of a happy reunion in the sweet bye and bye. She had beensick for some time, but was thought to be improving, when swiftly andsilently 'as a thief in the night' the change came and despite all thatskilled doctors, nurses and loving friends could do she passes to herreward greatly lamented. Her demise came as a shock to the community as she was very highlyesteemed by all who knew her and the general feeling is that theneighborhood is poorer by having to give up this noble little woman. Thebereaved husband, sisters and brothers may rest assured that the peopleof Glendale sympathize very deeply with them in their great sorrow. Justthirteen years before the day she died, with her sister Lizzie, now Mrs.Fred J. Smith, of Kelwood, she landed in Neepawa from their home inCranbrook. That sister was with her at the last and it was to her Mrs.McLaughlin bequeathed the sacred trust of caring for her baby daughters 8days old. But our hearts go out in sympathy to the aged parents inOntario, stricken with grief as they await the coming of the train whichbrings the beloved daughter home again dead, and in this way we ask themto accept the heartfelt sympathy of the many friends she made while inthe west.

Esther 'Ettie' Ennis
Pop-up Pedigree

Note*: Esther 'Ettie' Ennis was born in Bracebridge, Muskoka County, in 1870.She was the ninth and last child born to Robert Strain and FranesElizabeth ( Wark ) Ennis. Ettie was to have been married at her brother, John’s house, but the bestlaid plans of mice and men didn't’t work out. Ettie was there in abeautiful red velvet dress that she fashioned herself and the localminister on hand, but the groom didn't’t show up. Ettie later gave herfrock to her sister, Frances Jane. Tom Phillips and his brother, William, ran a feed store in Wolseley,Saskatchewan before 1900. Probably this is where Tom met and marriedEttie on 4th of November, 1896 at Calgary, North West Territory, Canada.They moved to Tees, North West Territory, (later Alberta) and built a sodhouse. It was here that her Brother Joe, his wife Maggie, their two children Osmondand Kathleen and their father and grandfather, Robert Strain Ennis, spenttheir first winter. Alix, Clyde and Stettler are names that Ina, Tom andEttie’s adopted daughter, remembers hearing. Tom and Ettie moved toArmstrong, British Columbia about 1910 where Tom operated a twenty acrefarm and had a mail route with the mail always being delivered by horseand buggy.

Note*: Fanny, as she is known by her many friends and relatives, was the oldestdaughter at home. With 4 older brothers, she soon became Mother's littlehelper. At the age of 12 she was baking white muffins and baking powderbiscuits, gradually working her way up to baking a gingerbread or a plainwhite cake. She recalls that these cakes were seldom iced. When rhubarbor saskatoons were in season, she would make 5 pies on a Saturday. Laundry, as Fanny remembers, was done with a tub and scrub board until1908, when her Mother got her first washing machine. The fence was theirclothes lines. Fanny's first job was working in a dressmakers shop in Grenfell. Shestayed with her brothers Frank and Johnny who were also working inGrenfell. She sometimes went into homes for a week at a time to dosewing. When her brother Gil went farming, Fanny kept house for him for2 years, then Gil was married. She then kept house for her Father untilshe and Billy were married in 1919. Fanny always had many hobbies. Her major triumphs were probably inneedlework and baking. Over the years she has been a keen competitor inmany categories at Agriculture Fairs, starting at the age of 14 byentering a print dress she made and some baking powder biscuits. Fromthen on she continued showing her many exhibits with consistent successuntil 1972. Among her achievements were prizes won at the C.N.E.

Frances Jane Ennis
Pop-up Pedigree

Note*: Frances Jane Ennis (affectionately called Aunt Frank by many) married Leverett David Coy. The year of their marriage is not known for sure at this time, but possibly about 1880. She was born May 5, 1863, probably in Breckenridge, Ontario. Her father, Robert Strain Ennis, was born in 1833, North Ireland and died June 21, 1908 and buried in Summerberry, Saskatchewan. Her mother was Frances Elizabeth Wark, born in 1830, Northern Ireland, and died August 20, 1896 and is buried in Summerberry, Saskatchewan. Frances Jane (Ennis) Coy, the sixth born and one of nine children born to Robert Strain and Frances Elizabeth (nee Wark) Ennis, died May 26, 1941 in Seattle, and is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in West Seattle. The Ennis family and Frances and Leverett Coy moved slowly west, working their way, travelling in a covered wagon train of Red River Schooners. They spent several years in Portage la Prairie and then moved on to Grenfell in the Territory of Manitoba. (The area is now Saskatchewan). Their home was a sod dwelling which had small windows to provide protection from the Indians, and also to serve as insulation from the heat and cold. Their life was hard and they lived through the times of the Riel Indian Wars. One day when Frances was alone with her baby, George Grenfell, (the baby, named George Grenfell, was the first white child to be born in the territory of the town of Grenfell, thus, his name), the Indians came and held a knife to Gren’s throat in his cradle and demanded all the food she had. This left them nearly destitute. They had three sons George Grenfell, died Nov. 20, 1910, in Seattle, Adne, died June 7, 1948, Seattle, and Roy David,Sr., died July 2, 1946,Seattle. Leverett David Coy was born July 27, 1857 in Coy, Nova Scotia, (Note - New Brunswick became a province in 1867), Canada. Lev died March 27, 1913 in Seattle, King County, Washington. His parents, George W. (Deacon), died Abt 1882, buried in Coy, New Brunswick, Canada and Jane Estabrooks, died Dec. 28, 1902, buried in Upper Gagetown, New Brunswick,Canada. Leverett’s father was a very large fleshy man. His mother, Jane was tall and slender. They were well-to-do and liberal. George was a Deacon in the Baptist Church in Coytown. The town of Coy was eventually named Gagetown, after a General Gage. Leverett worked in lumber mills and as a carpenter most of his life. They moved back and forth between Canada and the United States many times while their family was growing up. Some years were spent in Milltown, Washington near La Conner on the Skagit Flats. Other years were spent at Alexander’s Landing on the west side of Lake Sammamish in Washington. It was there that their fourth child, Clara was born. Leverett was working at a mill at Monahan, on the east side of the lake at the time, and rowed back and forth to work. It is believed that Monahan is the name of the place recorded as the birth place of Clara - or possibly could have been recorded at Issaquah, Washington. The Coys moved to Seattle probably some time in the 1890’s, where they bought a home at 4218 Latona Avenue. They had a grocery store known as the - Coy's Grocery Store, address 711 8th NE Avenue, on the corner of NE8th Avenue and 45th Avenue NE in the Latona District (see the picture of the store in Leverett's and Frances' scrapbooks). Their fifth child, Mary Frances, (also called May and Mayme), was born there in on May 10th 1901. May grew up in the family home on Latona Avenue. After her father died she helped her mother with the cooking and housekeeping for roomers and boarders they took in during World War I. May met her husband, Howard Anderson Barber in an 'over the fence romance', as he lived at the Showers Boarding house just behind their home, owned by some people named Showers. Her sister, Clara met her husband, Thomas Myer Reeder, over the same fence, who also lived at the same Showers Boarding house at 401 NE 42nd Street as Howard Anderson Barber. When Leverett died in March 27, 1913, his wife, Frances scattered his ashes on English Bay, Vancouver, British Columbia, as was his wish. Leverett was a staunch and stubborn Canadian and told his children that they were Canadian, and always would be Canadian, even though his two younger daughters were born in Washington State. Frances ran the family grocery store in Seattle for several years and then worked as a cook for many years at the Latona Grade School (that was just around the corner from their house). In fact she worked there until she was 76 years old. She sold their home about 1926 and lived in several apartments for the next few years. When her health began to fail she made her home with her daughters, May and Clara. She died in May 26, 1941 at the age of 78, after a succession of strokes. This account is from Mary Phyllis Fletcher (Reeder) Hawkins, 1018 So.246th Pl. Des Moines, Washington and Donald Raymond Coy, 3806 51st Ave.S. W. Seattle, Washington, 98116-3615 1-206-938-4493.
