Notes for George STOREY

Listed as living with his parents in the 1881 Manitoba census.

Lived on NE 24-3-8W from 1893 till 1895 (near Manitou).

He and his famiy are still living in Pembina as of the 1901 census, and his widowed mother Hester is living with them as well. However, their last name is incorrectly spelled “Storie”. He is listed as a farmer at that time.

Listed in 1911 census as living at 372 Lipton, Winnipeg (sub-district 67), along with his wife and youngest son Irvin (spelled Irvine) J. His birth is listed as May 1858. Can’t quite read his occupation & place of work, but the place is something ‘Freight’ (‘Richmond?’ or something like that?) and the occupation is something ‘Clerk’ (may start with an ‘F’).

George signed his son-in-law’s (Daniel Coulthard) probate forms as a witness on May 31th, 1916; and, it should be noted, he himself spelled his last name “Story” at this time.

As of the 1916 census (which was done in his area on July 3rd, 1906), he was still farming at Section 6, Township 2, Range 13 W1, in the Souris district. At that time, he had 9 horses, 1 cow, and 1 other “cattle”. Sometime between July 1906 and 1911, he and the family moved to Winnipeg.

By the 1921 census, George and Annie live by themselves, at 372 Lipton Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Marriage date/place verified by Manitoba Vital statistics record.

The Darlingford Saga II has a brief mention of the family, but they have the eldest child listed as Albert, and the birth years for Albert, Alda, and Irvin as 1893, 1895 and 1896, respectively. It also mentioned that George for a while ran a stagecoach between Winnipeg and Selkirk.

Their 50th wedding anniversary newspaper write up states that George came to Manitoba in 1877.
