Published Sketch of Charles and Josephine Hansen McOmber Family

Contributor: Judiwh Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

[The following biographical sketch was transcribed by Niki Harrison McOmber from photocopied pages of a book containing biographical sketches of residents of Eagle Hill, Alberta, Canada, published sometime between 1968 and 1978; with added commentary. The name and author of the book, and other particulars, were not recorded. The source of the original information must have been a close family member, probably Beatrice, the daughter of Charles Orange and Josephine Ellen Hansen McOmber, as the sketch is accurate in most details.] "Mr. and Mrs. Charles McOmber were both born in Utah, and spent their early married life in Idaho, before moving to Taber, Alberta, in 1912. While there Mr. McOmber added being the fire chief of the town to his other activities. The horse-drawn engine and horses were a real thrill for his young daughter, Beatrice. The family of eight –five sons and three daughters– moved to Champion in 1917 and on to Eagle Hill in 1919, traveling by covered wagon and trailing their livestock. After spending a short time with Mrs. McOmber’s sister and family, the Monty Smiths [Alice Henrietta Hansen Smith], who lived on NW1/4 12-34-4-W5, The eldest son, Lee, purchased the H.O. Yewell farm through the Veteran’s Land Act. [There were actually two older sons: Charles Ray and Marshall Peter McOmber]. While in Taber, Lee enlisted with Fort Gary Horse Regiment of Medicine Hat –regiment #1309379– and saw four years of service. Lee was wounded and gassed during that time [World War One], but it did nothing to dampen his sense of humor, as was evident the hot afternoon he took off for a swim in the river, and when he was seen, he said that he was celebrating his brother Fred’s birthday, who had stayed at home to build an outhouse. Lee was Postmaster of Eagle Hill, taking over when the Yewells moved to Hainstock district, until it was operated by A.V. Johnson in 1924. Lee married Annie Jones, daughter of the W.A. Jones’ of Vale View in 1921. To this union four children were born. A daughter (stillborn) is buried in the Eagle Hill cemetery. Leone (Mrs. Sam Tofin) and Lenore (Mrs. John Tofin) and son Jack lives in Calgary. Fred McOmber spent some time at Huxley before moving to Deer lodge, Montana, where he married and now lives. Owen will be remembered by many for his ability as a ball player. He too married and resided in Deer Lodge, Montana, where he passed away in 1968. Beatrice McOmber married Alvin Brown in 1921. Alvin, a son of Henry Brown of the Mound district had been overseas in World War One for four years. He was with the 187 Regiment (information from Robert Muir, also in the same battalion) Regiment #552939. After farming in various districts, Alvin bought some big caterpillars and formed the Brown’s Construction Company. Disposing of his interests in the company, he purchased and operated a motel at Creston, British Columbia, for a few years. The Browns returned to Olds in 1963, purchasing the Mountain View Trailer Court, which they were operating when Alvin passed away in September of that year. The Browns had a family of three: Mrs. Elva Denman of Red Deer, Mrs. Yvonne McWhirter of Wainwright, and one son, Stanley, deceased at the age of 10 years, in 1933. [Another daughter, Grace Berniece, died when six weeks old in 1925]. Beatrice has remarried and is now Mrs. Henry Dupuis of Angleton, British Columbia. Berniece McOmber married Carl Roundy in Great Falls, Montana, and is now living in Alton, Utah. In 1924, the McOmbers moved from Eagle Hill to Waterton Lakes and later to Great Falls, Montana. They are both deceased.

Grandma Roundy also passed away before I was born. Unfortunately, I still don't know much about her and her life, but from what Dad's told me, she was an incredible woman. She loved her family and she loved the Lord.
