Nathan's brother John was born 1874 so too young to be his brother but could always be cousins...
have since seen a pedigree file of father John Redding's family and Thomas was married to a Mary, so not Euphemia's husband...

Nathan's parents are in pedigree files on the IGI... John Redding & Sarah Bachelor (A submission & not complete so not sure how accurate any of it is as it doesn't even match the family left in 1881...)
John's parents are listed on there to be William Redding & Mary Rance https://www.familysearch.org/

Hey Gillybilly,

Just curious if you are located in Saskatchewan?  I saw that you have looked at their homestead records, just seeing if you are close by.  I do have some insights will share them in the morning after work.

Hi Jeff,
Afraid I'm far from Saskatchewan here in the middle of the UK. I ordered the homestead records through the LDS and looked at them on microfilm locally. There didn't seem to be anything especially out of the ordinary, but were nevertheless interesting, as this is a new area for me, so I would be interested for any insights.

Hey Gilly,

My apologies I didn't know you were that far away.  Homestead records will brief in nature can hold clues to the whereabouts of your ancestors, as well as family size, farming conditions (hardships they may have faced, fire, drought, etc.), and nationality if not British subject. I myself have found telegrams, letters, and such in ones in the past.  Nathan and Ralph did indeed own seperate homesteads but it was 2 quarters sections of the same parcel of  land (basically they were neighbors), NE and SE are on top of one another.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Land_Survey

Through yours and J.J.'s efforts I was able to locate Ralph and Alma's obituaries from the local paper, as well as a picture of their gravestones from Woodlawn cemetery.  As well I was able to find 2 small articles from a local history book of Delisle on the Redding family and Elsie Price.

I was also able to find them on the 1906 Census here, page 15 about 6 households down, Nathan was transcribed as Matthieu for some reason,

If you can send me a private message, with your regular email addy,  I can send you the documents mentioned above, as the documents are a bit big to post here plus they may have details of living people.  Btw Kate is Ralph's brother seen in the census above.

Hello gillybilly:

Re your posts of Aug 31,2011.The Reddings were my Great Grandparents.Their daughter,Sarah (kate) was my Grandmother. She married Edward Hunt in Hespler,Ont,on April 20,1911.They were both in the Salvation Army at the time.They filed on land in 1917.
My  Hunt Grandfather came to Canada in Jan 1904.He sailed from Liverpool to Halifax with his destination was Winnipeg,Manitoba.He was born in 1880 in Norich,Norfolk. Sailed on the SS Sicilian.
The Redding family ended up her also,after only staying in Florida for one year.
If interested,get in touch,would be interested in other long lost relatives.
Regards, Don hunt
