Maude McGregor was the wife of Arthur McGregor and the mother of Alexander and Julia McGregor and Mary McGregor Pomeroy, all but one of whom she outlived. She lived most of her life on a farm south of Rosenfeld, Manitoba, Canada, which she worked by herself after her husband's death and her daughters' growing up. However, she had also seen Winnipeg and had a sense of the metropolitan.

Maude was a fatalistic woman and was alarmed by the illicit activities of her husband, son, and younger daughter. She knew they were all involved at different points and in different ways in some form of resistance movement against the United States. She did not approve, and she lost all three because of it. In 1942 she attempted to frame herself for the bombing of a rail line which had in fact been perpetrated by her younger daughter Mary.[1] Mary would have none of it; she confessed, was executed, and Maude lost yet another child.[2]

In 1943, she could do nothing but watch as US soldiers advanced north past her farm en route to Rosenfeld, much as she had thirty years before.[3]
