Name: N Stilwell
Email: rupert@mb.sympatico.ca
Surname: Michael
Query: Want to know about Muriel Leanore Michael (b. Aug.27,1908, Owen Sound, ON.).  Muriel was regarded badly by most of her family.  Was George Percival Michael really her father (b. mid 1800s, Ontario)?  Sarah Michael (nee Gowler, b. mid 1800s Manitoba, later orphaned) was her mother.
Her sister who hated her deeply since childhood told us that Muriel was born in Winnipeg, on/about Aug.27,1908, and that Sarah Gowler Michael was OUR (Muriel's children) AUNT!!!  Questions:  Was Muriel (who definitely looked/acted differently from the Michaels) adopted, illegitimate?  Was she really born in Owen Sound on the Michael farmstead attended by a mid-wife, or in Winnipeg (even Poplar Point?).  Question:  why would Sarah Gowler Michael travel to Owen Sound in late pregnancy when she suffered so many miscarriages ... why did she try to run away from the Michaels farmstead (while waiting for Muriel's birth).  Who are the Michaels (a large family, some Christian names were: Stanley, Charles, George, Edward, James, etc.).
Any possibility of finding out exactly where Muriel Michael was born, and her parentage, even if only to verify the Michaels as her real parents (even tho that would not explain their peculiar and cold behaviour toward her).
The Michaels of Owen Sound:  what is their background.  I understand that George P. Michael's mother was a Wetter (she died terribly from cancer); his father started out as a butcher (I think).  Would be very interested in contacting the Wetters related to George Michael's mother ... at her time of life the Wetters lived in/around Toronto (old York).
If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

I do know however that they moved a few years later to Saltcoats, Sask (N.W.Territories at the time) I believe it was 1901. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I should mention that the surname was sometimes spelled McLeod. They were Presbyterians and would have attended their Church if there was one. My Grandfather was (among other things) a Stone Mason. He constructed the Presbyterian Church in Barvis Sask.

Query: I have details on two brothers, Lionel (Doctor) and Sidney (farmer) BEECH who settled in Pilot Mound Manitoba post 1881.  Each produced 9 children.  Although the descendants of Lionel more or less relocated to Ontario and British Columbia, I believe descendants of Sidney still remain in the area.  I have a large family tree of descendants from both brothers, although the Lionel side (5 generations) of which I am descended from is more detailed than the Sidney side (3 generations) of which I have no dates. Lionel's eldest child, was born about 1876 in India as were at least the first 4/5 of his children.  Sidney appeared on the UK 1881 census and unmarried so therefore did not emigrate until after that date. His children would have been born later as well. I would like to get in touch with Sidney's descendants to fill in the gaps of information.

Surname: Finnerty
Query: I'm looking for history re my grandfather who was a home child sent out from England in about 1900.  The reason I look to the Russell area is of course, the Dr. Barnardo home and farm which was located there.  My grandfather was John Thomas Finnerty, DOB 1884.  He originally landed in Quebec, I believe about 1900, and did work there for a short time, then to Ontario where he was not treated well on a farm(s), from there he went to Manitoba to work on a farm where he was well treated.  Because he was a home child, I wondered if he ended up at the Barnardo Home.
Are there any records of the boys who passed through Russell? Would anyone in the area have remembered a grandparent employing a young boy (18'ish? by then) for a time?  The name Finnerty is uncommon so can only wonder.  Thanks for your ear.  I do so wish I had asked questions when I was a little girl.  We all must try to preserve our history
