  • Birth*: 11 April 1869; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Date Apr 11 1869 per 1901 Census3
  • Marriage*: before April 1891; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Emma appears for the first time on the Brighton Twp. 1891 Census with Joseph and Esther. James Ernest is NOT with them. It could be that Ernest and Emma were married before 1891 and lived with Joseph. Then, before April 1891, Ernest left for the U.S. where Emma joined him later and, in 1984, had Joseph M., as shown on the 1901 Census in Manitoba. Emma is not with them in Manitoba. See Divorce.; Principal=M. "Emma" ?
  • Divorce*: 1900; "He was married twice. Divorced the first wife. They had one son Joseph (Killed World War I)" per letter from Elsie Dann Behrerdt, rec'd Feb 9, 2001; Principal=M. "Emma" ?

  • Death*: 13 October 1954; Brandon, Manitoba; Mabel Tolley told me that James Ernest Ames, her grandfather, moved to Kenora when his house burned in Manitoba, then, when he was getting old, moved back to Manitoba where the family built a house for him. He died in Brandon, so Mabel thinks, and there may have been an issue of suicide - he may have hanged himself. She believes he is buried in Birnie or Riding Mountain.
  • Burial*: 16 October 1954; Birnie Cemetery, Birnie, Manitoba; Memorial: (See Exhibit) AMES; Maud O.; 1874 - 1953; J. Ernest; 1869 - 1954 (Birnie Cemetery, Birnie, Manitoba, July 14, 2005)2

  • Census: April 1881; Brighton Twp, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 12 at 1881 Census: see Joseph Ames5
  • Note: before 1890; California, U.S.A.; Mabel Tolley recalls that James Ernest Ames was first married when he was in California (or the West?) and that his son Joseph as born in the States. He then divorced his wife and brought his son to Manitoba.
  • Note: circa 1890; Gold Mine, Red Mountains, California, U.S.A.; Melvin Ames told me that J. Ernest Ames is said to have gone to California quite early - he said around 1880 but he was in Brighton Twp. age 12 at the 1881 Census. In the 1880's sometime, he went to Eden, Manitoba and worked for Jackson for a time. He exchanged letters with one of the Striker men who was involved in a gold mine in the Red Mountains of California. At some point J. Ernest Ames went to California and worked in the gold mine. Melvin says he stayed 10 years - the 1901 Census shows son Joseph immigrated in 1900 - so we must estimate that J. Ernest Ames went to California around 1890. In California he married Emma, his first wife. In 1894 they had a son Joseph Marion Ames, shown to be born in Boise, Idaho by his military records. Then they were divorced and J. Ernest Ames brought his son to Manitoba. When J. Ernest Ames came back to Manitoba he worked for Jackson again at Eden for a time and then tool the 1/4 to the west of his father near Birnie. William Prout lived on the farm to the north which explains his marriage to Maude Olivia Prout in 1902.6
  • Note: 1900; "He was married twice. Divorced the first wife. They had one son Joseph (Killed World War I)" per letter from Elsie Dann Behrerdt, rec'd Feb 9, 2001
  • Immigration*: 1900; Riding Mountain, Manitoba; 1901 Manitoba Census shows that Ernest's son Joseph had come to Manitoba from the U.S. in 1900; that is also likely when the father Ernest came to Manitoba. It appears as if Ernest and his wife Emma were in the U. S. somewhere - he from before 1891 since he is not on the 1891 Brighton Twp. census - and she from after 1891 because she is. Emma must have died in the U.S. before Ernest moved to Manitoba where his parents and family had moved in 1889. Ernest married again in 1902.

  • Note*: 9 May 1907; Sec 30 17 15 W, Birnie, Manitoba; A letter from the local Land Inspector to the Deprtment of the Interior shows that the quarters of this section had the following status at that time: SW and NE - reservered for timber; SW - apparently open; NW - entered 25th ultimo by W. ?. Ames. It appears as if there was much interest in these sections as several letters are on record from other claimants complaining that their applications have not been acted upon. It seems as if the Ames family had been on this land for some time and had done some work, at least enough to qualify for entry when the quarters came available due to timber status being changed by the government. The wording of letters suggests that others who did not have defacto possession of the land felt they would have done more and should have a chance at it. The other claimants seem very annoyed at the delay and feel they have been ignored by the goverment. Letters re other quarters show similar disatisfaction with what could not have been an easy process.

We never met her and she knew very little about Homer's family I guess so the obit was incomplete. There were six boys in Annie and Wellington's family and four girls . The boys are Carmen, Homer, Milton, Delbert, Russell (the only one still living) and Gerald. The girls were Myrtle, Mary, Jean and Gertrude. I have to find out if there was one that died young.. I have just purchased a new computer and am on cable rather than the telepone line and can receive attachments . However I do have trouble retrieving them if I have to do more than just click on them. I also haven't learned how to use my burner so I can store this info on a disc and I have to learn how to file so I don't have buried files that I can't retrieve .
