SMITH family in Kenora, circa 1850-1950

Surnames: SMITH
I'm researching the parents of Elizabeth SMITH (1867-1946). Elizabeth married Joseph GERVIN in Buckingham, Quebec, and had ten children - Maude, James Douglas, Walter, Dorothy, Annie, Amy, Marion, Roland, Marjory, and Mildred GERVIN.

Around 1908, when daughter Maude was 17, she went to live with her grandmother in Kenora. This was probably her maternal grandmother, i.e. mother of Elizabeth SMITH. Maude remained in Kenora, where she met her husband Robert (Roby) STRANG. They had no children.

The grandmother had at least four children - Elizabeth SMITH, Royal SMITH, Rubin (Ruben?) SMITH, and Jerry (Gerry?) SMITH - because when Elizabeth died in 1946, they were listed as her surviving brothers, all living in Kenora. I believe Royal had a son named George SMITH, also from Kenora.

It is possible that at least one of these SMITH grandparents were of Native-Canadian descent .. but this is pretty "iffy". Just going by facial features of their daughter & grandchildren.

Does anyone know of a SMITH family in Kenora during this period?
