    Mr. and Mrs. James Spry brought with them their family of three boys and four girls. Another boy and girl were born here.
    The family worked together and cleared land. The older children got work wherever they could to help provide for the rest of the family.
    In a matter of eight or ten years a school was built. In 1900 His Majesty's Mail Service was extended into Rockville. Mr. James Spry was Postmaster. This office he held until his death in 1921. Previous to this the settlers had to go to Manitowaning for their mail and later onto Green Bay. The former trip was made by boat to Vanzant's Landing and then on foot the rest of the way.
    Lewis married Rose King of massey and lived in Rockville where Bernard Felix now lives, then moved to Mindemoya in 1918.

    When Lily Spry Chisolm died she left two small children, Faye age 5and Julian age 2 1/2. They came to live with their grandparents Mr. and Mrs. James Spry.
    Emma Spry's daughter Ida married Gordon Bickell.
    Alfred became Postmaster when his father died and held this office until Sept. 1952, when Rural Mail came daily from Mindemoya, carried byCharlie Cadiuex.
