Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1837
Centre-du-Quebec Region
Quebec, Canada
Death: Apr. 6, 1885
Greater Winnipeg
Manitoba, Canada

Walter was the seventh of eight children born to French innkeeper François Gouin and American Lucinda Spicer in Baie-du-Febvre, Québec.

Interestingly as François was Roman Catholic and Lucinda Church of England (unusual in those days) they evidently chose to divide their children between the two faiths.

All of the boys were well educated and quite successful in their chosen professions. Walter worked as a lumberman in his younger years, then as an Inland Revenue Assessor in Ontario.

In the early 1870s the Civil Service transferred Walter to Winnipeg where in 1876 he was appointed Justice of the Peace.

Walter and his brother James had married a pair of Flindall sisters from Hastings, Ontario. After the deaths of Walter and his wife Eliza, their youngest daughter Emma was raised by James and his wife Adelaide. Emma later married Samuel Chapleau, a nephew of the 5th Premier of Québec.
