Re: SAMUEL FAVEL (1820-1896)

Hi Joyce. I've updated Ancestry.ca with as much as I could find on Erastus Samogan Snake Favel.

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.

Re: Favel/Howse Connection

Hi Outofsocks. Welcome to the forum. I haven't been able to find Elizabeth Nellie Howse after 1910. The court took away her property in Lobstick Settlement likely to settle debts. She married Thomas Anderson between 1901 and 1906. Many of the original families of the Victoria Settlement, moved about...
