Pioneer Days of William Cumpstone, Senior and Junior M202 35mm MG9 A87


 Lynn Lees wrote to a genealogy list about this family:


Sep 24, 2000


Query: My g uncles Ted  and Will Cumpstone settled in the Boisssevain area in the late 1800`s and I am trying to locate any information on them.  They may be connected to the Moise family.  





The Rootsweb Manitoba Archives mentions a copy of the book 'Patterson, Albert A.

Pioneer Days of William Cumpstone, Senior and Junior' [ M202 35mm MG9 A87]

The author of the original message included the following:


"This book tells of the pioneer settlement in the Turtle Mountain Souris-Basin area including Deloraine, Ninga, Old Wakopa (1877 LaRiviere)  and Fairfax. It was in the Winnipeg library some time ago and you could probably get it through inter library loan.

Here are some of the names I jotted down in the hopes that someone is looking for them.

Christine Amsden in Canada most generously visited a local archive for me and scanned the 4 pages of the Patterson chapter.  I am currently transcribing them.  She also discovered that William is buried at Boissevain.


It seems John Harrison originally worked for Wm Cumpstone and in 1896 he married Emily Cumpstone, who was William's daughter. They had 5 boys and 2 girls....James, Ted, Sidney, Will, Joe, Bessie & Mary.


Christine also mentions that there is a Cumpston Lake nearby.


Thanks Christine!
