Canadian Blackwell Questions:

Hello, my grandmother on my father's side was Sarah Ann BLACKWELL b.June 5, 1882 at Cobden Ontario d. Nov 15 1954 at Neepawa Manitoba. She married Charles Wesley CLARK November 5, 1903 at Minnedosa Manitoba. She received her education in Cobden Ontario and moved to Manitoba at age 22.

I also have a great aunt, Violetta (Etty) b. Apr 15, 1877 at Cobden Ontario d. June 18, 1966 m. Albert Eli Clark June 29, 1898 at Franklin, Manitoba.

I think they were cousins but I have not been able to trace them any further back. I searched the Blackwell Notebook. Do they connnect with any you know of in your research.
