Memorable Manitobans: Cyrille Dumas (1840-1928)

Pioneer.

Born along the banks of the Red River, in what would become the Municipality of St. Vital, on 7 September 1840, he married at the age of 20 and was the father of 17 children, among them J. P. Dumas. After farming at Red River for many years, in 1870 he moved to Neche, North Dakota and farmed there until 1906 when he returned to Manitoba and took up land at Toutes Aides. He remained there until 1925 when, in failing health, he moved to Fort Garry where he died on 13 June 1928. He was buried in the St. Vital Catholic Cemetery.
