Hi,

I found a short obituary for Eli Lindsay in the Lethbridge Herald, November 26 1968, page 18.  It says he was 109!!!!!!  He would have been 110 in Feb.  He died at his home in Arborfield, Sask, about 90 miles east of Prince Albert.  He was a pioneer district farmer.  His survivors include 33 grandchildren, 96 great-grandchildren and 23 great- great-grandchildren.  He came to Canada in 1906 from Hedensford, England, and first settled at Rossland BC, where he was a miner.  He moved to the Arborfield district in 1911 to homestead, and retired from farming in 1931.  He is also survived by 3 sons and 2 daughter (they aren't named in the obit).

Found another article in the Lethbridge Herald... Feb 29, 1968.  It says "Ex - Creston Man Celebrates Birthday".  It is from Arborfield... says Mr Eli Lindsay spent his 109th birthday at a tea party at his son Walter's place (the family homestead, near Arborfield).   It says Mr Lindsay was born in England and spent 40 years working in British coal mines before emigrating to Rossland BC in 1905.  He moved "here" (Arborfield area) in 1910 and farmed until he was 75.  He is still in good health.
