Early Miners Continued Mixed-Race Marriage Tradition

Walpole Roland, a retired British Army officer, was another local mining prospector who also “got hitched” to a native woman. Dr. Matthews in “Oft in the Stilly Night” tells us that for their honeymoon they walked from the Lakehead to Nipigon. His Aunt Elizabeth had this to say of his family: “They were very nice people and respected. Mrs. Roland had a sweet face. They lived a little apart from the community but I think it was probably by choice. I went to school with the two Roland girls. They were well mannered and well brought up.

They've also been indexed in 1891:
http://ontariocensus.rootsweb.com/transcripts/143-1.html
 
And from this I have finally pinned them down in 1881 - Prince Arthur, Algoma, Ontario, indexed as 'Rowland', head of household 'Alx Walpod Rowland', wife 'Isabelle' (indexed as aged 50, original probably reads '30', children Fredrick V, Constance W, and Olive.


ETA: familysearch labs also shows the death of Olive in 1882.
