Canada Lookup Request / Re: Baker - Calgary
« on: Monday 17 December 18 21:21 GMT (UK)  »
lhorosko, you should not post your email on this open public part of the forum to protect your privacy and prevent spamming, etc. You can remove it by using the modify button.

Since you and  Boopdogg were both on line as I started to type this, you may already have connected through the email but, if not, email addresses are best sent through the PM (private message) system.  Boopdogg would need to make 3 posts, even to just say "Hi", to access PMs.

Regards

United States of America / Re: James McMartin and Sophia Horton - help needed

Sophia....

On the 1861 census, Sophia is down as married in the column that only gives married or single as choices. Two columns over, there is a tick for her in the widows column (a bit blotchy but shows).

Can't help with the obit although I suspect it might be a case of going through the paper page by page and column by column.

But.....

Her spouse and children are likely still alive so you should modify your post to remove their names to protect their privacy (RootsChat rules).

The Common Room / Re: Very very large BRICK WALL

About A C Mott on the passenger list....

I also agree that it reads A C Mott. She is listed as a foreigner on the manifest as opposed being English or Scottish and is travelling in the accommodation category saloon as opposed to steerage. I think it would be highly unlikely for a domestic servant to be travelling other than steerage and doubt that this would be Ada. It is too bad age and occupation are not listed.

Rose Moth mmn Hobbs b Dec qtr 1878 and d Mar qtr 1880 so would have missed the 1881 census.

The Ottawa Citizen has an online obit for a Winnifred Chappell in 2014. It gives no further info about any Canadian family members so hard to tell if she is yours for certain. The cemetery may have additional info. Click on her name for more details.

First one on the list.....

The other Winnifred doesn't match...click on her name to read obit.
