In September, 1913, newlyweds Clemina Pearl (Cox) (born ca. 1890) and Charles Wilfrid Buckle came to Thompson Crossing, where Charles was construction engineer for the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway. From her home in Vancouver in 1983, Clemina Buckle wrote, “There had been eleven brides in there and each one had something named after her. My husband drew the maps. He named two places after me. I have never been back but look upon those two years as the happiest of my life.”
