Part of the confusion is that Neil changed the spelling of his name to Fummerton in the 1930s. Neil was the patriarch of the Fummertons in the Thunder Bay area. He passed away in 1939. Neil married Augusta 9th June 1892 in Port Arthur.
Neil met Augusta when he was hauling freight to mines west of the Lakehead where her father, a hard rock miner, managed various mines (Beaver Mine, Badger Mine & Silver Mountain Mine)
Neil moved to the Lakehead in 1880s and worked with his father as a miner in small mines in the islands off Thunder Bay.
Best of luck
