RE: Margaret Bell
Hi Sarah,
I spent a couple of hours at the Provincial Archives of Alberta this afternoon searching through death records for all of Alberta as late as 1966, privacy laws do not allow anyone except proven members of the family to search more modern records, we even tried divorce records. Then we tried films of newspapers from Innisfail area looking for an obituary for him to see if that would give us a clue.
Sadly we could not find anything about Margaret.
Sure wish I had better news for you

Norton and Eunice Still

Sarah,
Sorry about the previous message.
I am writing this to because I was wondering if you can email the photos of them for my own private use and to put them in my family tree. Norton Still is my 4th great grand uncle.

Thank you,

Lisa

RE: Hendra
Hi my name is Sarah and I was just looking at your memorial for Ethel Marguerite Hendra Spencer, are you related to her? I happen to be a relative of the Andrew Sampson from the 1910 census. I am looking for information on how he came to be living with them and why he would list them as his next of kin on his 1918 WWI draft card? Any help with this would be great.
Thanks Sarah

Dear Sarah, Thank you for contacting me concerning Ethel Marguerite (Hendra) Spencer. I am related to Ethel only by marriage. Her husband, William Everett Spencer, mother and my grandfather were first cousin. So I actually have no direct line to Ethel's family nor any connection to the family other than the Hendra family and the Spencer family were neighbors in Speaker Township. However, due to your question, I did some additional research and found the following which may or may not be helpful to you.


1910 U.S. Federal Census for Speaker Township, Sanilac County, Michigan. Andrew Simpson (Sampson) is a twelve year old boy who is listed as a "hired boy" in the William and Leana Hendra family. There is no indication in the 1910 census records as to any direct relationship of Andrew to the young Sanilac County family.

However, checking in the 1900 U.S. Federal Census, I found several Andrew Simpson but only one fit the criteria of being born in Michigan in or about 1898. If this is the same Andrew Simpson, he was born November 1898 in Volinia Township, Cass County, Michigan. Cass County is on the opposite side of Michigan from Sanilac County. It borders the state of Indiana, just north of South Bend. In the family, Andrew is the third of three children born to Andrew, Sr, and Will E Simpson. Andrew has two older sisters, Prude (13) and Adeline (6). His parents were both born in Michigan and had been married in 1885,

If any of these names sound familiar to your research, then this may be a match to the 12-year old Andrew Simpson living with the Hendra family in 1910.
