Email from Elinor Daniels Aug 2004: Aunt Bessie was a real hoot, and used to play the fiddle/ violin for me when we were alone together. She enjoyed it but seemed to think it was, shall we say a little hillbillyish for her to play the "fiddle", so never really let anyone know she played. Uncle Bert was, at that time, manager of eastern Canada John Deere, and I think she was conscious of his "position". I liked her fiddle playing but accepted that she didn't want it known as well as the fact she didn't want to be called Bessie, but "Bee". Don't we all have our little idiosyncrasies ? We would laugh and get a real kick out of it, but she would only play it when we were alone together.

I show Gordon [Dafoe] living around Riding Mountain and marrying Viola Henry. I am wondering if she is related to the Jim Henry who married Mabel Watson, a 1st cousin of my father. Does anyone know?
-
Also I see from the obituary that, after his mother died in 1919, he lived for awhile with his aunt Mary Jane Smith of Pleasantdale, Saskatchewan. This is possibly the Mary Dafoe that Bill found on the 1881 census, an older sister of Ellis Albert. Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks.
Barry Snider

She was buried in Riding Mountain Cemetery, Manitoba, Canada. She married James Laurence HENRY on 16 Oct 1937 in Riding Mountain, Manitoba, Canada.

I visited Mabel Henry at Riding Mountain, Manitoba in 1962 and got a lot of information from her. Her father made a habit of "cousining" i.e. going to visit all the cousins. At one time, Mabel and her husband ran a store and Post Office in Riding Mountain. Her father kept a genealogy of the Watsons and Buchanans.

RIDING MOUNTAIN HISTORY BOOK
TRIBUTE TO MABEL HENRY
The world is a better place because of people like Mabel who have lived among us. Mabel was the grand-daughter of our first local homesteader, James Watson. We are fortunate that he saw fit to settle in this district so that we had Mabel in our midst for a friend. And a friend she was, to all, no matter what their station in life.
Mabel was proud of her family heritage, and of her own family. We recall her merry smile as she spoke of her "kidlets", and the joy she took in her grandchildren.
Mabel, like everyone else, had her trials and tribulations in life, but she had that inner serenity and a trust in God which brought her through. Her church was important in her life, and she contributed in many ways to the worship and the outreach of the church. Blessed with a lovely singing voice, Mabel generously shared that gift in the praise of God.
Mabel was a true Manitoban, enjoying the changing seasons of the year and all the wonders of nature around her.
Mabel will long be remembered as one who carried more than her share in community life, as a good neighbor and friend, always ready to help others. She didn't seek praise or recognition for her efforts, everything she did was a labour of love. Mabel had a great capacity for listening and understanding. She was one who could laugh with you, weep with you, comfort you, encourage you and accept you.
It was due to Mabel's inspiration that this book had its beginnings. It was she who transformed an idea into a creative effort, supplying information and enthusiasm to give this book its start. It is safe to say that without her, this book would not have been.
Mabel was called home to her Master suddenly on Sept. 17th, 1983. Thank you, Mabel, for being our friend.

Email from Elinor Daniels Aug 2004: I know that Aunt Mabel and Uncle Jim's place was always the stopping place for relatives, friends and some people she hardly knew!!! How I wish we had lived closer so they could have been a bigger part of my life. They were both precious. Uncle Jim was one of a kind. Said little but when he spoke he was well worth listening to. His sense of humour was dry, honest and a bit off the wall. Aunt Mabel was so genuinely interested in everything, that it made her a wonderfully interesting woman. The last time I saw them was at the party I held for Mum and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. They generously flew out to be there for it. I loved them both very much and considering the few times I was ever in their company, they left an empty place in my heart. They had a way of making you feel special.
