Excellent Sandra  8), now we also know who grandchild P belongs to.

For grandchild D and the others, we'd need the obits of the other two sons, to see who belonged to
who.

 THank you Dbree great info  family had a long stay in Ireland it seems - intrigued by the 2 marriages guess it was because they were of different denominations & had ceremonies in each faith :)

You're welcome. :) In Quebec in that time frame, the Anglican marriage wasn't recognized by the Catholic church. I suspect they were urged to remedy that after the Catholic baptism of William.

Yes, a very long stay, and Bridget and William travelled cabin class both ways. 8)

Sandra, always great teamworking with you. :)

Just a thought ,I know he had an Oldsmobile at one time also .

The Olds was quite similar, but with a few differences....front face grill was different, hood
exhausts were different, and windscreen wipers were bottom mounted not top mounted as the DeSoto, according to my OH.
