Stokes, John 18?-1913
John Stokes was a pioneer orchardist in the Oyama area. His cousin, Dorothea Scott-Coward (Allison) visited him in 1912 as he was suffering from tuberculosis. He returned to England in 1913, and subsequently died. John was the eldest son of May (Rapier) and Philip Stokes. Philip Stokes was Dorothea Allison's maternal uncle.

Nancy and Peter Mcdonnell contributed 35 photographs from the photograph album of John Stokes; the photographs had been taken by Schofield, a professional photograph who Stokes had hired to document his life in the Okanagan.

This is a private collection held by the Lake Country Museum; copies of these photographs may be purchased through the Museum.
