Carole Miller comments: Hello...my name is Carole MILLER and I live in Kenora, Ontario. George SPENCE is my Great-great-great-great Grandfather, I believe. My grandmother was Kathleen BEGG, daughter of James Rutherford BEGG b.1872. His parents were Duncan Finlayson BEGG and Jane BOLTON. It's nice to have found this site.

Carole: Who was your grandmother Kathleen married to?

Welcome to the Forum Christina!

As a first-time registrant, if you haven’t already done so, I recommend you visit the home page for more information about how to navigate the website at this link: RED RIVER ANCESTRY HOME PAGE

You present some very interesting information. I have a lot more information about Duncan BEGG and his family, but just don’t have the time these days to prepare a Family Page for him.

I am particularly interested in George CALDER in the obit you mentioned for Juliet. Could you send a copy or give us the full details of that obit?

Thanks very much Christina!

Your information necessitates that I yet again review my Family Page for Charles Robert BEGG. There are more than a few puzzling details that I need to check into; beginning with son John George BEGG, etc. who I don’t even have included as a child. This may take me a few days from the looks of the puzzling details.
