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...

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...

Re: EDWARD PRINCE TAYLOR (1844-1919)

Mary (nee Sabiston) Park's Manitoba Affidavit says she was born Mar 1852. The 1870 Census says she was 18 yrs old (1852). Based on this, I would agree that the Mary Sabiston that married Edward Taylor is NOT the same person that married John Park.
