Well now I am looking for my Grandmother's, siblings. My Grandmother was Delia Smith Born August 3, 1904 in St. Isidore de Bellevue, Saskatchewan to the parents of Dolphis Smith(b: January 31, 1880 in St Laurent, Sk. which is close to Duck Lake,Sk.) and Marie Virginie Cayen(b: March 27, 1882 in Duck Lake, Sk.). I have some information. Although I do not know if it was their first name or middle names they were using. I thought I knew my Grandmother well, and what a delightful surprise to know she did have brother's and sister's who she grew up with(my Grandmother went by the name of Rose later which I knew her as and I knew her given name was Delia). The only brother and sister that we heard of when growing up was Alfred Smith and Georgiana Smith(we were told they died when our Grandmother was young, and Alfred Smith died in 1944 in ww2). What I found was this for all of her sister's and brother's was: Alfred, Marie, Delia(my Grandmother),Georgiana, Alcide, Joesph, Mike, Johnny(john),Agnes and Erest(or Ernest). I do not know if Alcide is Joesph or they are two separate children. Many would go by their middle name. I am not happy though that it was decided for me that part of my family would be hidden from me and would never have the chance to know. How very sad and unfortunate for me and my siblings.
If anyone has any info on the "Smith" family of this line I would appreciate any info. If you have any info on the military of Alfred, Alcide, or any of the boys would be very helpful as well. I have a picture of a brother in uniform which was my Grandmother's brother although I do not know which one it is. Found out they did not mention the "Metis" who fought in ww2 but it has to be written some where. I have looked on collections Canada and not their. If anyone knows anything please send me a email attention "Smith Family". Thank you ahead of time.(please note my nic name is Bunnie)
My Great Grandfather was Dolphis Smith, born:Jan. 31, 1880(Metis) He was the son of Henri Smith and Elise Parenteau.Both parents are Metis as well.
Dolphis Smith married Marie Virginie Cayen(born March 27, 1882)(Metis). They married October 17, 1901. One of their daughters (Delia Smith)was my Grandmother who was Metis as well.
Delia Smith's husband was Felicien Bonthoux, who came from France in 1911 to Duck Lake, SK.Delia Smith was married August 18, 1925 in Bellevue, Saskatchewan.These are my Grandparents.
Marie Virginie Cayen's parents are Alexandre Cayen(JR)and Marie Adeline Piche(my Great Great Grandparents). Marie Adeline Piche would marry a second time after her first husbands death. Marie Adeline Piche had only 3 children with Alexandre Cayen(JR)(known as Alexandre (goudreau/boudreau)Cayen(JR), she would have many more children with her 2nd husband "Louis Bourassa". My Great Great Grandmother's 2nd marriage was to Louis Bourassa(Petit Louis).
I am looking for info on my Great GrandFather Dolphis (Delphis)Smith. I know he married Marie Virginie Cayan(she was born March 27 1882 at Duck Lake Saskatchewan) His wife's parents were Alexandre Cayan(junior) and Marie Adeline Piche(they had 3 children Marie Virginie Cayen,St. Pierre Cayen and Florenstine Cayen) Alexander died before 1900 and his wife remarried to Louis Bourassa. Dolphis mother-in-law's(Marie Adeline Piche) 2nd husband was (petite)Louis Bourassa.
I need to know when Dolphis Smith was born and where? Who his parents were? Is Dolphis is second name or did he have a first or middle names?Was he Metis? Was he born in Manitoba or Saskatchewan?
Dolphis Smith and his wife Marie Virginie Cayen had the following children: Alfred,Lexina(Marie?),Adelia(my grandmother born Aug. 3, 1904),georgina,joseph,mike,Johnny,Agnes,Ernest,Leon. They lived in the Humboldt District of Saskatchewan during the census of 1906 and near or in the towns of St Louis Saskatchewan, and St. Isidore de Belllevue,NWT(saskatchewan).In the 1906 census my great grandparents were older than in the 1916 census . In the 1916 census they were younger, the only thing that stayed the same were their children ages.Thank goodness I had my Grandmother's birthdate and birth certificate. Remember that my great grandmother went by Marie and sometimes went by her middle name Virginie(this drove me nuts in my research and even did this when she registerted her children's birth).
Also if anyone knew my Grand mother Delia Smith (parents Dolphis Smith and Marie Virginie Cayen). My Grandmother(Delia Smith) married Felicien Bonthoux(1srt Marriage),and would marry two more times, 3rd husband was George Bell.Could give me infor on her parents or what you know or were told. It all helps.

I am looking for info on my great grandfather Henry Jack Smith born March 21, 1896 in Ellis County, Texas. In 1917 he was living in Illinois Bend, Tx. According to the 1930 and 1940 census he was living in Justice Precinct 5, Cooke County, Texas. He married Alpha Mae Sewell. Any info is greatly appreciated
I am looking for any information on John Smith, born between 1834 and 1840 in Coleford, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. He married a Pricilla Roof. They had a number of children - Freedom, Pricilla, John, Henry, Maria, Maryann and Aaron. There may have been more children.
The children Freedom, Pricilla and John were born in Gloucestershire. Henry and Maria were born either in Cardiff or Bridgend in Wales. Aaron was definitely born in Bridgend, Wales. The family moved to Wales after the births of their first children.
They are listed on the 1871 Wales census and in 1891 they were living in Neath, Glamorganshire, Wales.
I can't find any birth or marriage records. Any information would be welcome.
Hitting a brick wall,and would like to know if Anyone can help. The following is what I have.
My Grndfather is Charles Thomas Nowland-B Aug 28,1897 D-July 23,1984 he was born in Marquette Co.Wisc.
He was the son of Michael(F)Nowland B-1866/D-1906 & Augusta Maria Magdalena Steinhaus.He had an older brother Francis & sister Sarahann. Augusta died Nov,1897.Michael later remarried Ella Moffet Dibble & had two more children before his death.
THIS IS WHERE IT GETS CONFUSING. The above were all born,resided,& died in Wisc. IT IS GOING BACK FROM HERE THAT I GET LOST.
Michaels father was Russel Thomas(F/C)Nowland B-Sept.1839 in Mich.D-July 22,1905 in Wisc. He was married to Mary Josaphine(Josephine)Smith B-Jan,1843 in Mich. D-unknown when & where. Rumor is that after Russels death Mary went back to Mich.,I have no info on her at all...They were married in 1865(Sept?)not sure where. I believe Michael was the only child.I am trying to go back from here.On Michaels Birth Cert.it lists Russels Parents as Micheal & Sarah Ann.Both born in Mich.On The Cenus Lists(1900&1905)his parents were shown born in New York. Mary's Parents are listed being from Vermont & New York.Ihave no further info,yet I know for sure it is not the Downs tree. We have checked that one fully. If ANYONE can help I would be GREATFUL!!! my direct email is: firstname.lastname@example.org Tammy Nowland Naus
