hi I have the history book "Chepe Sepe" according to Bill Lindsay: James Stewart Lindsey and Minnie Mae (Scott) lived in Neepawa, Manitoba in 1897. Bill was born Jan. 18, 1897 in Neepawa. Brothers Tom and Bob, and sisters Tot (Ella Mae) and Madge.
Bill married Elsie Klee born 29 April, 1906 in Pine Ridge, Man.
In 1928 Bill and Tom came to the Peace area with their uncle Bob Scott and aunt Mae.
The story doesn't say that James and Minnie came to Spirit River. I hope this helps.
