Re: JOHN INKSTER (1806-1864)

Fact: Jane (nee McNab) Sanderson, wife of Robert Sanderson, claimed on 18 Aug 1875 that Isabella Sanderson, her niece, was the mother of Frederick James Sanderson, born 4 Jun 1862 in St Paul Parish, and that his father was unknown. This Isabella Sanderson is NOT Isabella (nee Sanderson) Inkster. Rea...

Interesting Reading on Red River Settlement

Last week I read "Red River shadows" by Olive Knox, published by MacMillan in 1948. Although it is fiction it is based on fact. It covers the years 1818 to 1827, 1836 to 1838, and 1844 to 1849. I quite enjoyed the book. I also read: "Statement Respecting The Earl of Selkirk's Settlement upon the Red...

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

I'm Ken Lang.

I have 20 boxes of material to still process into Ancestry.CA and then send off to the Al...

Re: WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH (1797-1869)

I've been told (scolded) a number of times by old genealogists that there is no supporting material that shows William Robert Smith's father's middle name was "Hart". I must admit I've never found any, so I've removed it from my tree. One genealogist also said that William Robert Smith probably adde...

Re: JOHN INKSTER (1799-1874)

I think John Inkster (1799-1874) was actually christened on 29 Sep 1799. They often used the christening certificate as a birth certificate. Of course, my source may have miss typed the B: as a C:. John INGSTER (M)........ C: 29 Sep 1799 Father: John INGSTER Orphir, Orkney, Scotland Mother: Margaret...

Re: JAMES INKSTER (1773-1854) and Molly Nicholson

Rupert Lelsie Taylor, in his book "The Native Link: tracing one's roots to the fur trade" Chapter 2 - Young Adventurer, seems to be the first source to propose that our James Inkster is the same James Inkster that married Molly Nicholson on Jan 21 1796 in Houton, Orphir, Orkney, Scotland. James INGS...

Re: JOSEPH MONKMAN JR (1836-1910) - Canadian Agent

What are the sources that say Joseph Monkman 1810-1899 was the Canadian Agent in 1870 Rebellion? The Manitoba Historical Society has listed this Joseph Monkman (1836-1910) as a Memorable Manitoban for his involvement in the 1870 Rebellion, not his father Joseph Monkman 1810-1899. I suspect it is far...
