    1. [QUEENS] Marriage cert. 1906/7 Rose Valley
    2. Brian
    3. I am searching for the marriage cert. of Lavina Ann McKenzie and Charles F. Bentley; a marriage which probably would have taken place at the Breadalbane United Church near Rose Valley (Lot 67) either in 1906 or 1907. Lavina was born in Rose Valley in 1882, daughter of John and Ellen (Moffitt) MacKenzie. With her father¹s sudden death in Colorado in 1898, Lavina and her siblings at various time between 1898 and 1906 removed to Boston in order to find work. It appears that mother Ellen (or Ellenor) maintained the farm in Rose Valley. In fact, I have found mother and son Andrew operating the farm there on the 1911 census. Fred Bentley was ³of² Wolfville, Nova Scotia and had gone to Alberta to homestead about 1905 or early 1906 (he appears on the Alberta 1906 census. However, we do know that by 1907 Lavina and her husband had left for Lavoy, Alberta. A son, my wife¹s uncle, was born there in August 1908. Can someone please advise me as to who to contact (government Vital Stats. or private) in PEI to search for this marriage cert. Thank you. Brian Edmonton, Alberta
