Good Morning Lynn
just reading the messages from last night
am forwarding 2 generations of the Marion Line; you will notice that I have Bob's mother as "Unknown Spouse" as I do not have Bob's history. I noticed that Bob's grandmother was related to Donald Ross, who was killed at Batoche -- being tragically dragged around the area (by a horse)... after mistaken for Louis Riel by Middleton's militia
I would be pleased to exchange info with you; my interest being THAT this is my niece's (through marriage) and great-nieces' history
I will check my obit file to see if Laurine's is there; but, am not sure if I still have the 1999 obits on file. Which cemetery was sure buried in South Hill, St Mary's, or Prince Albert Memorial Gardens??
