     William was born between 1 April 1857 and 30 June 1857 in Ludborough, Lincolnshire, EnglandG.7,4,6 William was born on 11 July 1858 in Ludborough, Lincolnshire, EnglandG.1 He died in 1940.8
     The son recorded in the 1861 Census as "William S. White" is William Stephenson White who later became the Mayor of Lincoln City. -- Phil White

William S White -- from memory he is a seed merchant ( I will try and find more details to confirm that). He lived from 1857-1940. He was elected councillor of Lincoln City in 1901, and was Mayor from 1908-1909, and from 1924-1925. I imagine that he lived in Lincoln for some years before being elected but cannot be sure of that. Many others of that generation became shop-keepers, including George Patchett White, and his son John Hobson. William S White was quite unlike any other Whites that I have seen photos of -- chubby with an olive complexion, and a fine moustache. -- Phil White.8

     Sheridene was born on 8 July 1947 in Saskatchewan, CanadaG.6,5,7 She died on 21 November 1986 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CanadaG, at age 39.8
     The following information is extracted from her obituary. Survivor(s): Merv Summach and Terry Summach. Predeceased: Stillborn daughter Summach and Trent Summach.8 Sheridene Susan Summach was buried in Asquith Cemetery, Asquith, RM of Vanscoy No. 345, Saskatchewan, CanadaG.9

Sheridene Erickson

     She was found on a passenger list with Theresa Bridget Cairns on 19 May 1954 in Liverpool, Lancashire, EnglandG; on board the Empress of Australia, a Canadian Pacific liner that departed from Montreal. Reg and Sheridene accompanied their mother. Their stated destination was Motherwell, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Mom told me that Terry, who was a war bride, was very homesick for Scotland. However, she found that things were not as good in Scotland as they were in Canada, and was happy to return to Asquith.10
     The following biographical information is from my (Rick Moffat's) personal knowledge or recollections , 1963:
In about 1963 or 1964 Sheridene rolled a car on a country road returning from a weiner roast at the regional park near Environ. She was thrown from the car and watched as it tumbled towards her. At the last moment a door came open and stopped it from rolling over her. She was taken to a hospital in Saskatoon where they found she had a "broken back." Fortunately it did not result in a severe spinal injury. (Feb 2017 - her daughter Koreen tells me it was a (1st lumbar vertebrae) burst compression fracture.) This weiner roast was one of my first outings on my own with a group of kids from school. I remember Mervin and Terry visiting us to see if I had seen any drinking at the party. I cannot remember whether or not I did, but I know they wanted to suppress any speculation that Sheridene had been drinking. I do not think she had been, but since she was driving her boy friend might have been.

Koreen also added that although her parents had met previously during Cliff's visits to his Aunt Jennie and Uncle Ray Summach's farm, they first "met" when he was the x-ray technologist at City Hospital where Sheridene was taken after the accident. He joked that she couldn't get away from him.11,7

The engagement of Sheridene Susan Summach was announced by Mervin L Summach and Mrs Mervin L Summach on 5 May 1966 in the newspaper the, Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CanadaG; Engagements
Mr. and Mrs. Mervin L. Summach of Asquith announce the engagement of their daughter, Sheridene Susan, to Mr. Clifford Donald Erickson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Erickson of Creighton, Sask. The marriage will take place on Friday May 27, 1966 at 5:00 p.m. in thee Asquith Baptist Church, Asquith.12
