Name of creator
Thomas Henry Jones was born in 1868 to James and Mary Jones in Manvers, Ontario (now City of Kawartha Lakes). Thomas married Mary Cashon, of Ireland, on 10 Feb 1892, in Lindsay, Ontario. Sometime between 1892 and 1895, James and Mary moved to Edmonton. Thomas worked as a carpenter/contractor and the family lived at 3rd St. Hudson’s Bay Reserve (HBR).
Thomas and Mary had three children, Lesa (born 1895), Meta (born 1899) and Vera (born 1903). All three daughters were born in Edmonton, NWT (now Alberta).
