Mr. Robert Brown SAMPLE
October 4, 2008:
Upon my return from two weeks in Thunder Bay, Ontario last night, I learned of the
passing of a good friend and a colleague in the local history and genealogy community.
Robert Sample passed away on September 26, 2008.
Robert was well known to most of the contributors to our web site, Bytown or Bust.
He was a strong researcher who interviewed and documented the pioneer families of
Goulbourn Township. He worked with hundreds of family historians to help them track down
elusive ancestors all over the Ottawa and Gatineau Valleys and all over North America.
He created a database of over 90,000 family connections for the 1800's.
Robert will be missed greatly at Bytown or Bust. He was a good man, a good colleague
and a good friend. Condolences to Mrs. Sample and the Sample family.
