Memorable Manitobans: Charles Sibbald (1845-1930)


Born at Toronto, Ontario on 6 March 1845, son of Charles Sibbald and Isabella Robinson, he came to western Canada as a worker on the Canada-US Boundary Commission of 1872-1874. He stayed in Manitoba and, in 1876, he married Grace McQueen Russell (?-1888), with whom he had four daughters and one son. He died at St. Andrews on 11 June 1930 and was buried in the St. Andrew’s Cemetery.
