Re: DONALD McDONALD (1863-1948)

This excellent work. I love the detail you provide. Saskatchewan Birth records show that Donald McDonald and Margaret Turner had a son John Philip McDonald born 24 Jan 1892 and Died 27 or 29 Feb 1892. The death is registered twice. Donald's Obit suggests that he served as a volunteer on the S.S Nort...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

I've been looking at the Manitoba Scrip Declarations for Angelique Chalifoux. I count 4 and it brings up the possibility at Ann Chalifoux was NOT Angelique Chalifoux. I just have not had the time to sort it out. I'll keep in touch.

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

I've watched Hugh Gibson for sometime because they lived on the same census pages as the Inksters (on my dad's side). Two years ago, I was at a family funeral and connected with a cousin on my mom's side (very Irish white, very prime and proper farm family) and he mentioned that he was a descendent ...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

Some Issues outstanding with the theory that Hugh (a) Gibson's (1780-1869) wife was Angelique Ann Charlifoux. 1) John Gibson was born when Angelique was only 15. This is quite frequent at this time, so not impossible. 2) RRS Census 1835 has the oldest Hugh Gibson with 2 males over 16, no males under...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

Ok I think I found another piece that doesn't fit. 1) The RRS Census for 1827, 30, 31, 32, 33, show Hugh (a) Gibson was born in 1777 to 1781. Hugh (b) Gibson is shown as born in 1890. 2) The Burial record from 1869 for Hugh Gibson in the Kipling Collection showed that he was 88 years old. This would...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

From the 1870 Manitoba Census of St Andrew, I can confirm that Ann Gibson was Angelique Chalifoux (1800-1904). She was Metis, not an Indian woman. And she was the mother of Francis Gibson (male 1834) and Elizabeth Gibson (1852 -). From the Manitoba Scripts the following claim to be children of Hugh ...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

I agree that there were 2 Hugh Gibson's in Red River, one married to Angelique Chalifoux and one to Christianna. Isabella Gibson Bird said her parents were Hugh and Ann Gibson in her Manitoba Affidavit in 1875. Are you suggesting that Christianna could have been known as Ann? I always thought Angeli...

Re: HUGH GIBSON (1780-1869)

This a really confusing family tree. It's not going to be easy to sort out. Sounds like fun. Can you highlight the evidence that there were 2 Ann's, to get us started?

Re: GEORGE SETTER (1816-1899)

George Setter's twin son, George William Setter, did not marry at all. Based on his grave marker shared with his twin sister, he died in 1877. The George William Setter that married Viola Blanche Dahl in 1922 was born in 1891, son of Colin Campbell Setter. Also, based on the same headstone and Georg...

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

I found Marnie's first book, "Branches - Grandfather tell me a story" about William Robert Smith and Mary Ann Swain's family. In it my Mom made notes of Marnie's address and phone number. Also book 2 was to be about William Roberts Smith and Ann Omand family. Book 3 was to be about the Munroe family.
