Re: DR WILLIAM TODD (1784-1851)

Not only are all the William Todd's confusing, the Donald Todd's are also confusing and mixed up. In particular there are: Donald Todd baptized in 1839 and his nephew Donald Todd born in 1855. Donald Todd baptized in 1839, has an HBC bio that shows he was in Saskatchewan district in the 1850's. In 1...

Re: DR WILLIAM TODD (1784-1851)

Dr William Todd's will in 1851, says his wife is Jane Johnstone with 2 sons, Albert Todd 1847- and Samuel Todd 1849-1864. Grandson William Todd (1853-) said his mother is Sarah. I suspect 2 people, a Sarah Johnstone and a Jane Johnstone.

Re: JAMES TATE (1810-1878)

In the Kipling Collection there is a burial record for a James Tait 75 years old buried in Oct 1875. This James Tait is the only James Tait in St Andrews in the 1870 Census. There is also only one James Tait of this age in the Manitoba Scrip records.

Re: JAMES TATE (1810-1878)

There seems to be some question about Lydia Tait. The Ontario Marriage record of James Porter and Lydia Tait in Stormont, Cornwall, Ontario on 17 Oct 1877, shows her parents as Peter Tait and Mary Minerva Moss. It also shows her birth place as Milleroches, Ontario in 1854. So M M Tait would be Mary ...

Re: SAMUEL FAVEL (1820-1896)

Hi Joyce. I've updated Ancestry.ca with as much as I could find on Erastus Samogan Snake Favel. He was born about 1856 in Saskatchewan district, Rupert's Land, British North America to Snake (-abt 1866) and Maria Margaret Peggy Stanley (1840-1909). You found him at Whitefish Lake in 1881. Maria Marg...

Re: James Smith: Second Son of John James Smith & Nancy Favel

Hi Nancy, again. I'm currently, over the past year, researching the Favel family and updating Ancestry.ca. I got bored of transcribing the Flett family tree. Flett trees are worse than Smith family trees. You luckily have both. Anyway, I've added references to John Smith's in the HBC Archives bio sh...

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

Hi Nancy. Welcome to Red River Ancestry forum. William Robert Smith had 21 kids so a lot of us in western Canada are his descendants. Although he was a teacher, a lot of his kids did not learn to read and write. The Hart question pops up alot. What we are looking for now are original records in Engl...

Page 54 of "Red River Adventure: The Story of the Selkirk Settlers" by J W Chalmers (MacMillan 1959) mentions Donald Gunn and the 1813 settlers. The 1813 settlers spent a winter in Churchill and then in spring walked to York Factory. "On April 6, 1814 the brave little expedition set forth with guide...
