Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

Hi Gary, I read your update on William Robert Smith's page last night. It was wonderful! The inclusion of information about WR Smith's participation in the Sayer trial, as well as the information about Benjamin Paul William Smith being arrested by the the Riel supporters, and then dying on the way h...
