Here’s a riveting acount of the Sam Greer story by a local historian Laura Ishiguro.   It’s a youtube video 75 minutes long. 
“historian Laura Ishiguro unravels the fascinating story of Sam Greer and his family beginning with the notorious “Battle for Kitsilano” in 1891 and travelling back over decades of his erratic wanderings through the BC Interior and the USA. His estranged relationship with his first wife and the life of his daughter Jessie Greer Hall open a window onto the world of settler women in the 19th century. The film concludes with an interview with Greer’s great granddaughter who attended the lecture. “
