History

Jenny Betts was born as Jenny Anderson in Kelowna, BC in 1912. After Jenny’s father was killed in 1918, the family moved to North Vancouver about 1919 or 1920 so her mother could work for Thomas Neiland as a housekeeper. In May 1921, Thomas Neiland moved the whole family up to Alta Lake to start his own logging camp, and the following year married Jenny's mother. At first, the family lived in the Alta Lake townsite, but after 8 months they moved down to Thomas Neiland’s first venture at Alpha Lake; logging cedar logs to be exported to Japan. In July 1922 the export log prices of cedar logs collapsed and so did Thomas Neiland, who had to file for bankruptcy. However, he gained financing under the name of Lizzie Neiland and bought land at 34 ½ mile. In 1923, the family moved into an old logger’s cabin on the property and this became their home for the next 20 or more years. Jenny married logger Wallace Oscar Betts in September 1937. After she got married, Jenny lived in a number of places, as her husband was often moving around for work, but many of those places were in the Alta Lake area, including at Parkhurst in 1938. They had four children: Louise Mary; Samuel Peter; Gerald Jardine, and Elizabeth Francis. In 1943, Wallace got a job in Port McNeill and the family moved there, where they settled for many years. She died in August 2003 in Port Coquitlam, BC.
