My great grandfather William Byas Irvine bn 1843, Kirkwall Orkney worked for HBC at Forts Simpson and Norman c1870-1910. He had a daughter, Jessie, with a native woman - born c 1875.
He married Margaret Catherine Pritchard who died in 1895 leaving him with 8 small children. Not being able to care for them, he took them to Halcro Sask and wife's parents.
At this point Jessie is no longer with the family.
What became of her?
Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
