Thanks for your reply. Marie Minnie Smith married John Laforrest in Thunder Bay in Feb.1917. We know that she lived in Dryden, Ont. for one or two years before her marriage. She was killed in a tragic train accident in July 1937 in Quibell, Ontario leaving behind many children. None of the family has any knowledge of her family background with the exception of the info on her death certificate. The 1906 and 1911 census shows a Mary Smith (B.1897) as an orphan but nothing in 1916 census. Have obtained a death record for a Marguerite Smith who died in June 1903 at the Industrial School in St.Boniface at age 22 from cancer but there is no family information and the informant was a priest. There may or may not be a connection...looking for any info to link us to her family.
Haven't found anything in the 1901 Census.
