    • The County of Wellington birth registry shows Katie Bell Talbot as being born on March 23, 1899. The County of Wellington death registry shows her mother, Sarah Jane Murphy, as having died on May 3, 1898 (after suffering from anaemia for 6-7 weeks). It is clear that Katie Bell's father, James Talbot, delayed registering the birth of his daughter until 14 months after the fact; authorities either recorded 1899 in error, or James lead them to believe the child was only 2 months old (as he may have been subject to a fine or penalty or failing to register the birth within a certain time frame -- more research into the laws of the time is required). The year of Katie's birth on her gravestone is thus wrong (says 1899, should be 1898). In the 1901 census Katie Bell is listed as Catherine B., born 23 Mar 1898, age 2.

      Katie and Julius Simle lived on a farm a mile from Fred Talbot, Dubuc, Saskatchewan. In 1939, they sold the farm and moved to Watrous, Saskatchewan, hoping the minerals in the Manitou Lake would bring relief to Julius' asthma. Katie succumbed to breast cancer October 3, 1960. Julius passed away in November 1959 with heart attack.
