* The Irvine's of Yreka, California*

Updated September 5, 2000

I am searching my family lineage and have partialy traced them from Yreka, CA to Fife-shire Scotland. I have traced John Irvine to arriving in Nova Scotia before 1818 from Fife-shire, Scotland, marrying Mary Chisholm in 1818 East Branch East River, and eventually settling in River John, NS as a farmer. John and Mary having a son Angus Irvine on 5-21-1829. Angus Irvine also a farmer of River John, NS marrying Elizabeth McKenzie (dob 2-15-1844)and having John W. Irvine (dob 6-1-1862), George Alexander Washington Irvine (dob 2-5-1873)and Ann Thoetis Irvine (dob 6-9-1878) as their children. George Alexander Washington Irvine dropping the Alexander in his name followed his brother John W. Irvine to Anaconda, Montana arriving in 1895. George W. Irvine a carpenter married Florence Ann McKenzie in Anaconda, MT in 1899. George and Florence dad a son, George McKinley Irvine, in July of 1900 in Anaconda, MT. The Irvine family moved thru the western states following the carpenter work that was available and finally settling in Yreka, CA abt. 1922. George M. Irvine married Thelma B. Kinyon (dob 4-15-1904)in Albany, OR in 1924 and eventually settling in Yreka, CA soon after. George and Thelma have two sons, William George Irvine and James Edward Irvine in Yreka, CA. William George Irvine was my father who has since passed away. Looking for anyone having information that may tie to my family or better yet a distant family member. Anyone out there!
