     The following analysis is from my personal research and reflects my attempts to consolidate information from different sources.
From various family obituaries, it appears that Isabella (?) was Wes Musgrove's second wife. Her first husband died in 1922. She may have married him before 1924 but this is still in need of research.

Her daughter Isabella (?) was also a step-sister of her husband Elmer, thru the above second marriage. This would seem to argue for a marriage date after 1924, when Ethel was older. She may even have married Elmer before her mother married Wes Musgrove.9

     William Tilson appeared on the 1901 Canadian Census of RM of Perdue No. 346, Saskatchewan, enumerated 31 March 1901. William was enumerated as "R". His children Agness, W. Richard and S.

They took an active part in the Finmakers' Club, a group of young people who have prepared and presented a play each winter. Mis. Musgrove was a valued member of the Homemakers Club.

On behalf of these organizations the guests were presented with a card table, a set of plaques and a purse of money from the community. Mr. Musgrove thanked their friends for the gifts and good wishes The pupils and the teacher of Polar Crescent School gave George a zipper school case as a remembrance gift. A short program of musical numbers and a dance concluded the proceedings.
