  • Notes 
    • John Henry Trivett lived in Christopher Lake after he left his Wife and 6 children in Ontario, Canada. Christopher Lake had a population of 50 or 60; it is North of Prince Albert, very close to Prince Albert National Park. The Village was on either side of the highway, which was the only street. John had a one-room building with a bed in one corner and a small cook stove in the other, a table and 2 chairs were there as well. The walls were plain; I don't remember if there were wallboards on the inside or not. There were cupboards over the table. An outdoor toilet out back and a washstand with no running water. I remember if smelled like cooking and stale tobacco. It had a single slopping roof and one window in the west.

      When I would be about 6 or 7 in the mid 1940's, I remember my first recollection of John Henry, he came to the Farm (we were living on the Farm at that time) in his old had painted blue Ford convertible coup with a rumble sear in the back. It was almost worn out and had no power at all even thou it was a V8. I thought at the time that this was the best car I had ever seen or ridden in. John Henry would come in the fall and would lend a hand at harvest were he could for he was a bit lazy and at this time he would be up in years. He would stay for 3 to 5 weeks. When harvest was done then my dad would go hunting ducks and if it was a Saturday I could go along. John Henry would only shoot when it was a sure shot and there was not too much of a chance of him missing. He did not have too much money at this time in his life and shells cost money. I remember Dad giving him the what for one time for not shooting and John Henry saying he didn't see the duck. He was not too tall, big around the middle and a bit over weight. He always called me "Deary". He had a large sore behind the ear called I think mastoids. It was like an open growth. He was a smoker but not a heavy smoker and he used roll your owns.

      Each year he would come down and visit us in the fall on the Farm. This went on till 1949 when we moved to the town of Assiniboia and Dad (Elmer R. Dennison) farmed from there. Then John Henry would come to stay with us there in Assiniboia in the fall. This would be one of the last times he came to see us maybe 1952-53. He was getting old and poor of health in fact in his latter years he had a leg amputated because of gangrene. The community took him under their wing and took care of him for now he was in a wheel chair.

      When John Henry passed away my Dad was already dead and Mom (Hazel Agnes Trivett) was living alone. She wanted so badly to go to her brother's funeral in Christopher Lake but everyone was working at the time. I was teaching in Regina and was unable to get away. I remember her being so mad.

      Mom was a bit of a social climber and was not always proud of her relatives. She use to get a bit gruff with John Henry when she figured he had stayed long enough. Of course there was always the extra work that went with having another person stay at your house and it was always in thrashing time. Lorne Dennison liked John Henry and he would in the late 1950's and early 60's go to Prince Albert National Park with his family for a holiday in the summer. He would always call in on John Henry and have a visit and invite him to their rented cabin in the park. They would have great times together. On occasion Mom and Dad would go up there and do the same. John Henry would sometimes come down in the 1920's to help whit harvest on my Dad's Farm. He would join the threshing crew of 8 to 12 men and would go around the countryside harvesting crops.

      Uncle left Ontario, Canada for the west and lived but a short time Grandpa and Grandma Trivett. He then moved up North to Christopher Lake where he lived with the Indians. I don't think he did too much hunting and trapping but worked in the Village doing odd jobs for various people. John Henry left his Wife and six children and came west because of some extra marital relationship that he got into at that time. Lorne says that John Henry sure loved the women.

      Written by Jerry Dennison, 2002

      Jerry Dennison says that John was a friend of Archibald Stansfeld Belaney aka Grey Owl. This would make sense as they lived in the same area at the same time period.

      Dear Sandi, I can confirm that John Henry Trivett is buried in the St Christopher Cemetery, at Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan-Lot A120. There is a small marker of the type that funeral homes use with his name and 1778-1968 on it. The Cemetery record says that he died 17 July 1968.

      Christopher Lake is a small community and I have been told that some people may remember him, but as yet have found no one. If I do, I will let you know. Sincerely, Leverne Baxter
