Thank you for your reply and the information about the two "George Jennings" born in Ontario. I think you are correct as to which family the Skull Creek George Jennings belongs. I'm quite sure he IS NOT my missing/elusive George L. Jennings, who was born in N.Y., lived in Wisconsin, and disappeared from the censuses in the early 1900's. My grandfather was William Henry Jennings who came to Northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan about 1900. In my eagerness to finally find great-uncle George, I didn't check my facts too well.
I did check the following facts about the Skull Creek George Jennings this morning and will include it here. The NOTE's are my comments.
The marriage 1901 is from the Manitoba Vital Statistics Database:
WPG 17/05/1901 George Jennings m. Helen Campbell
Marriage Place: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
NOTE: Interesting that in the transcription on line the month is written in French as "mai". This might suggest a French speaking official, possibly a Catholic priest, though there is no other reason to suggest this.
The birth of daughter Evelyn is from the Manitoba Vital Statistics database:
REGISTRATION NUMBER: 1900-17710533 The child has the last name of Jennings, no father is mentioned, and it is unknown if the parents are married to each other. Mother is named as Helen Campbell.
Date of Birth: 15/02/1900 WINNIPEG
The date of registration is: 19/06/1952
GEORGE JENNINGS is born on 17 / 04 / 1902 at Winnipeg, Manitoba to Helena Campbell; No father's name on-line, but the parents are married to each other. No registration date is shown on line. (Not on 1901 census, because he was not born yet.)
Saskatchewan Vital Statistics Registration Number: 1845
EDITH JENNINGS is born on 1904 / 11 / 25 at Skull Creek, Saskatchewan to
