At Alice’s death she is shown as widowed.
It is possible they separated at some point, maybe he stayed in Saskatchewan.

Most of the family emigrAged to Manitoba.
Edwin and his children lived there.
It is clear judging by family photographs that they visited BC and saw the family.

After Edwin died, they apparently moved there permanently.

Edwin, who I met, and Florence who we corresponded with were out contact points.

After Florence’s death we lost touch.

However the one re,pmaining branch of the family remained in Winnipeg, and I have managed to contact them.

The Aunt to Alice, Emma Caroline Smith nee Edward, and her husband, Dennis William Smithremained there, and the family lives there now
