HOWARD AND ALMA BUCHANAN
by Alma (Dafoe) Buchanan

Howard, son of John and Florence Louise (Walker) Buchanan was born and raised in the Birnie area. His parents came to this farm in 1908 and farmed there until they retired to the village of Birnie in 1952. They had 7 children: Viola, Olive, Irene, Gordon, Howard, Raymond and Arnold.
When World War II broke out, Howard enlisted and served with the P.P.C.L.l. in Sicily and Italy. After being severely wounded he returned to Riding Mountain in 1945.
Howard and I (Alma) were married on July 18th, 1952. I am the daughter of Teddy and Margaret Dafoe. I was born and raised at Riding Mountain. By a previous marriage to Earl Crandell, I had a daughter, Joyce.
Joyce married Cyril Fainter of Birnie and they reside in Portage la Prairie. They have 2 children: Debbie, who is nursing at Portage la Prairie and Danny, who is attending the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.
Howard, for many years, hauled cordwood from the mountains with his grey team and he still thinks that they were the best team that ever hauled wood into Riding Mountain. He also worked for Jim Henry and then drove a truck for the Dept. of Highways. Howard and I were both caretakers of the Riding Mountain school until we moved to Portage la Prairie in 1958.
Howard was an active member of the Riding Mountain Legion. We both supported the curling rink and other community activities. Howard says that he really had a good curling teacher -- Polly Jackson.
We now reside in Portage Ia Prairie, Man. but enjoy visiting our friends and relatives in the Riding Mountain area.

William Samuel LESLIE [Parents] was born about 1871 in Perth County, Ontario, Canada. He married Margaret Ann ARNOTT on 25 Dec 1900 in Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada.

William Samuel Leslie aged 29 years parents (Get this) Samuel GRAHAM Leslie and Matilda GRAHAM Leslie. ( I do not think that his middle name was Graham but that rather her Maiden name WAS Graham. They sometimes fill out the Reg's incorrectly. Where does Matilda Graham fit into all the Graham's we have been researching?? Wm. S. born Perth Co.,Ont. , Bachelor, Farmer, living in Dauphin at time of marriage. Married 25 December 1900 to Margaret Ann Arnott aged 19 yrs. in the village of Dauphin by R.G. Scott, minister. She was living inthe village of Dauhin at time of marriage also. Parents George and Martha Clyde Arnott. Witnesses were Edgar Makelin and Jane Leslie. (Perhaps Jane Leslie is Wm's sister) I have heard of the name Macklin but not Makelin??

Margaret Ann ARNOTT [Parents] was born on 7 Apr 1881 in Beautiful Plains Municipality, Manitoba, Canada. She married William Samuel LESLIE on 25 Dec 1900 in Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada.

had the Martha part, but not the George.
And also had the twin, Margaret Ann, in my records.
But not the marriage to Leslie.
I found a marriage record to William McFarlane instead.
Was Leslie her second husband?

Manitoba Archives on-line Jan 2005: DETAILED BIRTH INFORMATION, REGISTRATION NUMBER: 1882-001308, CHILD'S DETAILS: Last Name: ARNOTT, Given Names: MARGARET ANN, Sex: F, Date of Birth: 04/07/1881, Place of Birth: BEAUTIFUL PLAIN[s], Parents Married: U, Mother's Marital Status: , MOTHER'S DETAILS: Maiden Last Name: ARNOTT, Given Names: MARTHA

Someone different:
Now to THE OTHER Margaret Ann Arnott who married William McFarlane at Silver Creek. Barry had found this marriage and because it was at Silver Creek where I know Geo. Pfaff and the Keatings were living I thought that this might be the same Margaret Ann so I ordered the Marriage Registration. BUT her parents are David and Margaret and she was born at Portage la Priaire, MB. So no connection even though the Margaret-Ann's are the same age.
