Finding Indiana people in Canada

 

I was looking for a person in Tipton, Indiana and did a Google newspaper search for Tipton, Indiana. I got this newspaper hit.

The person I was looking for was not on this newspaper but these three other Tipton, Indiana residents were:

  1. G. Burkhart
  2. Treloar-Tresidder
  3. Walter W. Mount

They had signed a letter to the Canadian Government which was now being published in this May 11, 1907 Minnesota newspaper.

=======================================

I may not have found my person but I might have helped someone find their relative who left Tipton, Indiana for the wild west Canadian wilderness.

I hope this post has given you some historical information and perhaps solved a mystery of what happened to your Indiana relatives.

Thank You.
