Histoire administrative

John George Crich (1882-1962) was a photographer who documented life in Carberry, Manitoba area. He was born in Seaforth, Ontario to John Crich and Agnes (Grant) Crich and died in Carberry. His siblings were Fred, Earl, William, Charles Chester (1886-1963), Gertrude (later Fowler) of Lucknow, Ontario, Bertha (later Callender) of Hartney, Manitoba, Agnes (later Glew) of Seaforth, Ontario ([18?]-1962), and Grace Beryl of Carberry (1890-1989). As a young man he moved to Saskatchewan and in 1920 relocated to Carberry where he and his brother opened Crich's Bakeshop. Crich was appointed Justice for the Peace in Carberry in 1937. Charles Chester Crich (1886-1963) was a baker in Carberry, Manitoba. In 1916 married Margaret Brunsden of Hartney, Manitoba. In 1917 a fire destroyed his business and he moved to Carberry, purchasing the bakery business from M. Morrison. Prior to that, he had opened a bakery in Macklin, Saskatchewan in 1916. He had learned his bakery skills from elder brother William. He died in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Grace Beryl Martha Crich (1890-1989) was the youngest daughter of John and Agnes Crich. She made her home with brother George after death of their mother, and helped in the bake shop. She died in Carberry.
