Surnames: Parker, Barber
Trying to trace the names of my paternal grandmother's parents. She was born, Florence Anna Parker Barber, 14 November 1907 in Nokomis, Saskatchewan. My great grandfather and his fellow travellers (3 other wagons) were the first people to settle in Nokomis and gave it the name.I know that they built a homestead & then went on to build the 1st general store there before moving on. I am keen to find out the names of my great grandfather & great grandmother and research back from there. I believe that my Grandmother had two brothers Aurthur and Lloyd and their families may still be in Canada.

Who were the parents of Florence Matilda Parker? Do you know if she had any siblings? My husband's grandfather was Robert Miles Parker born in 1875. I am looking for his siblings. His father was Frederick Parker, mother Lydia Miles. They lived in Caen France where Frederick taught English. Robert was born there. He was in Saskatchewan from at least 1897 to 1904 then in Victoria BC. His oldest daughter was named Florence. Maybe there is a connection

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I don't at this time see how they fit in with my Parkers. Will keep it on file and if I hook them up will let you know.

Hi Sue,

Not sure if you are still researching Barbers. My Barbers were Arthur William (b. Buckinghamshire 1971 ish) and his wife Florence. Interesting that you have the same names in your tree. I think they lived in Saskatchewan for a while. They moved to Victoria, BC also, quite early on as the kids attended High school in Victoria.

Let me know if you are interested in sharing info,

Best,

Jennifer

Oops, that should read 1871, not 1971!

Sorry,

Hi Jennifer

Think that yours is a different Barber family as mine came from County Sligo, Ireland and emigrated in the early 1800s. Their surname was originally spelt Barbour and they first settled in Wilmot township, Waterloo County, Ontario.

Thanks for contacting me.

Sue

Sue,

Have we emailed before? My father's family came from County Sligo, Ireland. I have traced them back to 1749...and found earlier traces in 1656 in Co. Sligo. Your Canadian line sounds similar to my cousin, Paul Barber, from Toronto.
