    Notes 
    • Apperley, Eugene and Mary Ellen (Clark)
      The first of two children to Mary Ellen Dugan and her second husband, Apperly, was born while the family still lived in the elevator in Prongua. It was for this reason they named her Atlas after the elevator where she was born in 1921. She married George Hennessy of the Cleveland district in 1941 where they farmed for some time. They later moved to Williams Lake, B.C. where George worked in a machine shop. They raised one son and one daughter together. Atlas later married Bill Mushanski. They still live in Williams Lake, B.C. where Bill is a foreman for Merle and Wagner saw mills.
      Victor Apperly was born in Prongua in 1924 after the family moved out of the elevator. He moved to Regina where he married Francis Bell. He was a member of the armed forces but was too young to serve overseas. Victor and Francis have three sons and still live in Regina where Victor works for the Post Office.
      Prongua will always be home to us all. We are proud to have been a part of that wonderful community. [20]
