Biographical history

The Kew family are long-time residents of Salmon Arm, homesteading the original acreage. The first European baby was reportedly born in the Kew homestead. That log structure has been relocated to R.J. Haney Heritage Village.

Jared (Jay) William Kew was born in Brantford, Ontario, on October 6, 1887. He moved to Salmon Arm in the early 1900s. He was well known and respected for his musical ability. He also sang in the United Church Choir.

Myrtle Pearl Kew (maiden name unknown) was born near Armstrong, BC, on June 8, 1892. She moved to the Salmon Arm area in 1911. Mrs. Kew married Jay on October 29, 1913. The couple had no children.
