Shortly after Alphonsine’s wedding Henry, Celina and Annie left Juneau and moved to Warm Spring Bay. After a failed land deal there the family moved to Fairbanks. On July 22, 1902 gold had been discovered north of Fairbanks and the Lovely’s were drawn to the new mining town. In 1910 a major gold discovery set off another stampede down the Yukon River to the new community of Ruby. It’s not clear if Henry joined that rush but by 1912 the Lovely family was living in the young gold rush town.
The first Catholic mass in Ruby was celebrated in August 1912 by Father Hormisdas Ferron in the Lovely’s Home. In 1913 Father Julius Jett bought a one story frame building and converted it into a church. Henry became caretaker of Ruby’s Catholic Mission.
Annie met and married gold miner A.J. Day in Ruby.
