"Weekend accident kills Riding Mountain man - Elmer Ross Ames, 40, of Riding Mountain, was killed Friday night in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 5, approximately 20 km north of Neepawa, said Neepawa RCMP. Ames' pick-up truck was travelling north when it was in collision with a south-bound truck driven by James Payjack, 46, Eden, police said. Payjack sustained severe leg fractures, lacerations to his left thigh and knee and a fractured left rib, according to a report in the Brandon Sun. Six-week old Frederick Ross McLean, one of the three injured passengers in the Ames vehicle, is in critical condition in the Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre with a fractured skull, said The sun. One-year-old Amy McLean, 23, of Riding Mountain, received a broken right wrist and facial lacerations. Amy McLean remains in hospital in satisfactory condition. Eva McLean was released from hospital in Winnipeg earlier this week. Eden fire department attended at the scene and a team from the Neepawa fire department was called in to operate their "jaws of life" equipment. These were used to help remove the drivers from both vehicles, said Neepawa RCMP. This is the first time the apparatus has been used to free accident victims since it was purchased by the Neepawa Legion in January. Cause of the accident is still under police investigation. A funeral service was held for Mr. Ames at Riding Mountain United Church at 3:oo pm, Wednesday, June 13 with Rev. Gordon Fulford officiating." from a newspaper in the Neepawa area, given to me Alma Draper, April 2001

  • Note*: after 1960; Manitoba; Faye Boyd wrote in 1979 to advise of Elmer's death. It seems Elmer married a Lois (from Saskatchewan) around 1974. In 1979 their daughter was 4 and son 2. In 1976 his pregnant girlfriend came to live with them (Eva McLean). She had two children as was outlined in the newspaper report. A third woman was at the funeral - a lady who had lived with Elmer around 1972. She had a little girl.

  • Birth*: before 1907; " ... Jack was of Ojibway descent and the grandson Allan Luby was in our local paper tonite and is the outgoing chief of the Dalles First Nation reserve ... " per email from Marion Leroux, April 9, 2002.
  • Note*: after 1980; "Larry henry elected as new Ochiichagwe'Babigo'Ining chief By Miner and News Staff - Larry Henry was elected the new chief of the Ochiichagwe'Babigo'Ining Ojibway Nation (Dalles First Nation) in the band's regular election Saturday. Henry was elected from a slate of four candidates including Joe Pete Seymour, Joe Sagutch and Verna Perrault. Daniel Strong, Susan Kabestra, Gabriel Henry and Fred Jamesen took the council positions. This is the first time four councillors were elected. In the past there were only two councillors. The new chief and councillors took office immediately and the chief expressed his desire to work with the former administration in a positive and progressive manner in a press release from the band office. "There are many projects, including healing, membership code, economic development and more that the community will continue to aggressively pursue," said Henry in the press release. Former chief, Allan Luby, declined his nomination for chief and expressed his support for the new chief and council. "We already have a meeting scheduled for Monday morning to begin working together to achieve the community's long-term goals," he said. The general band meeting and election was well attended with members travelling from as far away as Calgary and Toronto and attended by representatives of the governance office of Treaty 3. Ochiichagwe'Babigo'Ining has 306 members, 122 of them classified as on-reserve by Indian Affairs. "An effort to have all voting members attend is made by the community. Travel and lodging assistance was supplied to voters wishing to make the long journey to participate in the election," said Cyler Cotton, electoral officer. A Sacred Healing Ceremony honoured former chief Jerry Perrault for his contribution to the community during his over 15 years of service." article from The Daily Miner, April 9, 2002, pointed out to me on the web swite www.gokenora.com by Marion Leroux.
