About Dr. Samuel Rainville

Hi Tom,

I too wish I had more pics of our respective family of Teters ancestors. The two people that visited Percy were his sisters. One was Naomi (they called her Oma) who married Dr. Samuel Rainville whom she met in Spokane. Married in Spokane,they moved to Crosby, North Dakota where they lived the rest of their lives. Samuel & Oma had 2 daughters: Helen & Regina. Helen never married, was a social worker who died at age 89 in San Diego. She was cremated and her nephew had the remains scattered in the ocean off the coast of San Diego per her wishes. Her nephew, Steve Kennedy, is the only living progeny of Naomi's family. His mother, Regina, married and had 2 sons: Patrick & Steve. Steve has given me a couple of old family photos, including one of Naomi and her brother Clyde Teters in their later years. Clyde was the brother your grandpa Percy went to live with in Montague, MT when he first moved from Spokane. The other visitor was Ethel Elsie (Teters) Foex, who married Harold Emile Foex in Spokane on Sept 26, 1900 and produced 2 children: Harold and Beatrice. The father, Harold Emile, moved the family to Chatham, Ontario, Canada where he was the Superintendent of the Dominion Sugar Company. He died tragically on Aug 3, 1929 from internal injuries received at work 6 days earlier being caught between a stanchion and a bucket from an overhead crane. I haven't pursued the family further, but found Ethel died in 1964. It appears your grandpa and his siblings were well connected even from great distances and the sugar industry was an integral part of the Teters lives. I'll attach photos in several e-mails so as not to reduce the quality of the images. Keep looking for family information, you'll never know where you'll find the next cousin.

Take care,

Lora R
