The Beaver Creek

Harry Barrons took this  picture. George Roche who had plane at his cottage on 'Deer' Lake flew my father over the property.  This photo (circa 1960) shows Beaver Creek where it flows into the Crowe River. Left of centre can be seen the old abandoned rail line that led to Cordova Mines and now supports the ‘new’ road to Cordova. My father Harry Barrons purchased the land along the west of this road from Gordon Derry and eventually built a home there. The Wells brothers operated a sawmill in the area upper (white patch) centre.

Scott Wilson added that George Roche was his grandfather.  "He flew his plane for the last time at age 84.  He sure is a wonderful guy, awesome grandfather and one hell of a pilot."
