  • Notes 
    • Fred Roblin living as Lodger with them in 1901 census born Sep 29 1878 in Ontario

      David, known by friends as DW or Wilz, followed his brother Rodmond to Manitoba from Prince Edward County, in 1882, and took up residence at the house built by Rodmond in Carman. DW was not on the 1881 Manitoba census, but appeared on the 1891 census with his wife and three older children. In addition a lodger and servant are also listed. DW accumulated a number of farms in the Carman area, although the source of the money to purchase these farms is unknown as he was not known to have ever done any real work. According to Gene Abbott, a daughter of one of DW's tenants, DW was also a money lender, apparently common in a era of few banks. Most of his farms were lost during the depression of the 1930's, and only a single farm remained at his death. Bessie and Myrtle jointly inherited the estate, although Myrtle gave up her share to Bessie, which included the farm and family house in Carman. This farm was later sold by Bessie, and the house probably also sold, or gifted, to her cousin Olive and her husband Will Murray.

      A few items known to have belonged to DW have survived. These include the family (Roblin) cutlery and his pocket watch. [5]
