My grandfather (Mom's father)was Isaac Orvis who moved to Matheson Island after his sister Julie married Edward Monkman.The Monkman family lived nearby in Loon Straits. My childhood friends included Brian Monkman who still lives in LoonStraits. Until I recieved a book "From Paddles To Propellers", I had no idea of the family connection. I also have a book "Loon Straits -Looking Back". While I knew many of the people in this book, I found no mention of Julie, which was why I posted on this forum.This area of the world seems to be quite historically minded so you may find documentation more easily if you still live in Manitoba.
