History / Biographical
The name Vera Frank is written on the back of photograph. Vera was the eldest of three daughters born to Scottish settlers Archibald ("Archie") McInnes (1861-1951) and Jessie (nee Aitken) McInnes (1886-1972). Their other two daughters were Ivy and Neva. Archie and his brother Neil worked on the Yukon Telegraph Line and bought land on the North Bulkley in 1904. Archie married Jessie on October 25, 1905 and they named their property Pioneer Ranch. Vera (1908-1999) married Ivan R. Frank (1903-1966) in 1934. Vera and Ivan had two sons, Donald (b. 1943) and Gordon (b. 1946). Vera, her parents, and her husband are buried in Kitsumgallum Cemetary in Terrace. Ivy (1909-2001) married Eric G. Strimbold (1897-1969) in 1929. They had two sons (Archie and Frank) and one daughter (Linda). Ivy and Eric are both buried in Topley Cemetary. Neva (1913-2000) married CNR employee John Nickolichuk (1913-1983). They had two sons (Jack and Innes) and one daughter (Jennifer). Neva and John both passed away in Victoria.

Notes
Photo is set on frame of black cardboard labeled with "Eyres, Victoria, B.C." Vera Frank's name is written on the back but the style of the dress looks like early 1900s. Likely her parents' wedding in 1905. This would also explain the difference in age as Archie was 25 years older than Jessie. The dress is also part of the Museum's collection (1987.57.29), donated by Archie Strimbold.

History / Biographical
Floyd Ray Richerson and Nellie Aline Richerson (nee Hollowell) were both born and raised in Denison, Texas; they went to Oklahoma to marry in secret in 1937 when Floyd was in his early 20s and Aline was 17. They had five children: James, Donna, Jane, Margaret, and Joyce. Floyd earned his chemistry degree and joined the marines, working as a machinist for the American military in WWII, and Nellie worked at a cotton mill. Originally only intending to stop in at Smithers on a road trip to Alaska in 1951, they eventually decided to settle there with their five children. Floyd opened a machinery business where he built and repaired parts for local companies. Richerson's Studio opened in Smithers in 1954 at the corner of 4th Avenue and Queen Street. Mention of Richerson's Studio in the Interior News stops in the late 1970s, and the studio likely closed when Nellie retired around 1982. Floyd Richerson passed away in Smithers in 2013, and Nellie passed away sometime before 2011.
