I'm wondering if anyone here has access to any of the local histories from the Russell area or Millwood or Harrowby? Some titles are:
"History of Millwood, 1886-1970"
"Our Ancestors Arrive in Manitoba: Early Settlers of Fort Ellice, Birtle, Russell, Seeburn, Rossburn and Surrounding Districts"
I'm looking for any references to John Sinclair and family who had a farm between Millwood and Harrowby in the early 1900s. I did locate a copy of "Banner County: A History of Russell and District, 1879-1967" and found the following reference:
"George Collins married Janet Sinclair daughter of John Sinclair, who was settled between Millwood and Harrowby. Of this family there were three sons, John settled near Gerald, Bruce, deceased, Lloyd at Calgary, and three daughters married and away from here."
The family is:
John Sinclair b.1841 d.1927
Margaret (Sandison) Sinclair b. 1852 d.1921
Elizabeth C. Sinclair b.1892 d.1972
Isabella W. Sinclair b. 1889
William J. Sinclair b. 1885
Janet Miller Sinclair b. 1883
I'm trying to find out more about Isabella or William. I do have all the census information
