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.

I'd like to find a copy of the second book, but I'm not sure who would have one. I don't know if her husband still lives in the same place though. I tried John's number, but it's no longer in service. I'll have to do a little searching to find him. Marnie also told me that she had an old photo of Ann Omand's daughter, Ann Smith Gray, but I never got a chance to get a copy from her. I'd like to find a copy if I could.

And Ken have you heard of Patricia (Pat) Smith from Vancouver? She collected 'rooms' filled with old photos, records and letters of both Smith families. The last time I spoke to her was in 2000, but I don't know if she's passed or not.

Welcome to the Forum Glen!
I have information on the Peter SMITH (1795-1851) family. Are you a descendant?
What would you like to know?

How much information do we have on the family of William's daughter Mary Anne Smith and her husband Richard John Turner Salter? I descend from this line and have a found several bits of info, maybe enough to warrant its own page even.

John Richard Turner Salter
b. 15 May 1818, Exeter, Devon, England
d. 25 Jan 1911, Graysville, Carman, Dufferin, Manitoba, Canada

Short bio on memorable Manitobans: http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/salter_rjt.shtml
Death notice: Carman pioneer passes,” Winnipeg Tribune, 28 January 1911, page 11.

John RT Salter was a tailor with 6th Royal Warwick Regiment and arrived at York Factory with a detachment sent during the Oregon bounry dispute in 1846. He was (according to Edith Roger's 'Pioneers of the West') able to purchase his discharge in 1848 by making mackinaw coats from HBC point blankets. He save up 200 pounds sterling to by a river lot in kildonan from John Sutherland.
He then moved to the Dufferin - Carman - Graysville area where he past away after being postmaster of "Salterville."

Children of John RT Salter and Mary Anne Smith (that lived to adulthood) are:

William Robert Salter (1851-1933)
Henrietta Salter (1853-1883)
Jane Salter (1855-1913)
Samuel Salter (1860-1944)
Marianne Salter (1862-1842) m/ Thomas McCulloch formerly of Glengarry Ontario, then Norman / Kenora Area, then Pinefalls/great falls/lac du bonnet). Thomas and Marianne's son Donald McCulloch is my great-grandfather.

Welcome to the Forum Paul!
Yes, I have lots of information about the family of Richard Turner SALTER (1818-1911). However at this time he is not on my Priority List. More about that at this link:

Hi,

I am a descendant of Richard John Turner Salter. He is my 2nd great grandfather. My lineage is such:

RJT ----> Samuel Salter ----> Percival Salter ----> Donald Edward Salter ----> Me - Donavon Salter

I am in the process of building my family tree, learning as much as Samuel as I can (any info would be appreciated), and trying to discover information about My 4th GG, the Cree woman who married James Swain. I would like to try to find out who she was and what Cree nation she came from, and I might try to connect with them. I am also attempting to obtain my Metis membership.

My father does not recall his grandfather much as he died when my dad was 4 or 5 years old. My dad recalls going upstairs to see him on his deathbed and shaking his hand. According to my dad, he believes Samuel was a machinist.

I had no idea of the indigenous relationship my family had until I began digging into RJT. I'm fascinated by what I'm discovering.
