 +====== The Archie McIntyre and Audrey Saunders Family ======
 +
 +
 +Archie and Audrey Mclntyre are found in the 1930 census living in Finley, Benton, Washington. At the time, they had six children: Robert, Harvey, George, Alice, Orville and Dorothy. (Three other children later graced their family: Betty, Roy and Charles.)
 +
 +Archie is listed in his obituary as being named A. S. Mclntyre, other documents list him as Archie S. Mclntyre, while the IGI lists him as Archie Smith Alexander Mclntyre. He was born in Carrington, North Dakota on 30 July 1894. He moved to the Pacific Northwest by the time he met and married Audrey Karen Saunders on 12 September 1916.
 +
 +Audrey was born in Tacoma, Washington on 17 April 1899. Her family had come to the Northwest from Nebraska before 1910. She is the eldest of six children born to Jacob Shiloh Saunders and Olive "Ollie" Jensena Larsen.  Her parents were divorced and her father went on to work in Alaska, taking two of his sons with him.
 +
 +Archie and Audrey lived in the Portland, Oregon area until their move to Kennewick about 1927. For a short time during the Depression they lived in the Finley/Hover area of southeastern Washington raising turkeys. This
 +endeavor didn't last, however, as by 1934 and until 1945, the family ran the Hover Mercantile Store and Hover Post Office.
 +
 +The family returned to Kennewick, operating Mac's Upholstery Shop until their move to Cle Elum about 1954. Audrey's mother was also living in the Kennewick area from about 1927. After Archie and Audrey's move to Cle Elum, they became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Not much more is mentioned of their faith (per their obituaries), except that their tombstones (located in Kennewick, Washington at Desert Lawn Memorial Park) include pictures of the Salt Lake Temple and the Book of Mormon.
 +
 +Archie died 17 February 1982 in Seattle. Washington. Audrey lived 13 years as a widow, passing on in Tacoma,  Washington. As mentioned above, they are both buried in Kennewick, as is their son, Orville, who died in 1979 in Cle Elum.
 +
 +Archie's father was Robert Smith Mclntyre. Robert was born 24 November 1858. The 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses list him born in Canada (Upper Canada), while the 1910 and 1920 censuses list him as born in Illinois. True enough, he lived in Illinois from the age of one, and thus there may be some confusion as to his origins. His mother, Effie Nicholson, was also born in Canada: at Glen Arm, Ontario on 3 June 1874. Some time after 1880, Robert moved to North Dakota and he and Effie were married in Carrington. Their marriage is listed as taking place on 11 Oct 1893, about a year after Effie immigrated from Canada.
 +
 +Here, Archie, who was the first of five children born to this family, was born. Two brothers, Lucius Henry George Mclntyre and Harvey Mclntyre were born here as well. Their two sisters, Alice and Edith June Myrtle were born in Florida. By 1910, they were living again in North Dakota, but by 1920 the family was living in Idaho. All this time, Robert made his living as a farmer.
 +
 +Archie's grandfather was Alexander Mclntyre. Alex was born about 1830 in Ulster, Ireland. He was married in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to Alice Gray Smith on 4 September 1855. Eleven children were born to this couple. The first two children were born in Canada, while the remaining were born in Warren County, Illinois. Alex was a farmer who lived up until the late 19th century. His widow is listed as living in Kansas in the 1900 census.
