Hi again, Karen,
I am aware of the tragedy as Pierre & Rosine aka Rosalie were my great-grandparents although the family only learned of this two to three years ago...one of those family skeletons. I would very much appreciate you e-mailing the newspaper story to me privately for my records, if it's not too much trouble. I am so very grateful for all you've done. It was a big surprise to me to learn that they had settled in that area. Would you know approximately where in the RM of Thompson they settled? The excerpt from the book said NW 1/4 and the Land Grants state NW 18-6-7 but I don't have a municipality map indicating its location.
