Biographical history

William Hicks Greenway of Crystal City was the son of the former premier of Manitoba (1889 - 1900) and MP from Lisgar (1904 - 1908), the Hon. Thomas Greenway. William was one of a large family of fourteen brothers and sisters. He married Mary Ellen Helem in 1901. Mary was the eldest daughter of George and Margaret Helem, pioneers in the Deloraine district. Mary had come west from Galt, Ontario with her parents in 1889. Following their wedding, Mary and Will resided in Crystal City. They had three children: Thomas Helem (b.1902), Aleda Margaret (b.1904) and Mary Evelyn (b.1906). William Greenway died in 1924. Mary moved to Winnipeg in 1948 and passed away in 1951.
