Image of the 1921 census page. Charles is found at line 25.

I am not going to post their names on the open forum as they are only recently deceased but you have the name and address of Harold's son from his death record. The son and his wife can be found at this address in the 1957 and 1965 voters lists.

This link has the obit for Harold's daughter-in-law.

This link has a bit of info about the presumed son's passing. There doesn't appear to be a full obit on line. You have a date so you might be able to get a copy of an obit through the Vancouver Public Library. If you wish to contact living rellies, the funeral home might be willing to pass along a message on your behalf.

US Lookup Requests / Re: Thomas Herbert Rice

Yes, he certainly is enticing, and I think you should look under all the proverbial stones related to him. IMHO it would be just as important to rule him out.

Having done some more poking around....

Unfortunately, I think I have to agree with *Sandra*'s findings on your most recent thread. It looks like "Chelsea" Thomas was born in Ohio, had a wife Emma, etc.

All the same, I think I would still contact the cemetery in Chelsea.

US Lookup Requests / Re: Thomas Herbert Rice

You're welcome  :)

Looking sideways.....

Do you know if any other family members may have gone to America? Cousin to Thomas? Another Rice rellie?

Grasping at more straws.

I'm not sure when the 1950 US census is to be released but I think relatively soon. It may help.

Also, I haven't gone back through to look again but did the grave record have a date or just year? The cemetery might be of help with an actual date if not.

I find it hard to imagine William going all that way without a good reason for doing so. If he stayed with a Rice family, I suspect there is some possibility they were related. But finding them will probably be another needle in a haystack hunt.

Have you tried looking for a newspaper obit in the area of death or tried to contact the cemetery for any other info they may hold? Perhaps info about anyone in the same grave or cemetery?

Grasping at straws here but one never knows what might turn up.
