Canada / Re: Death of Esther Jones, 1902

I think you are probably correct bbart. The passenger manifests are surely correct. Then you have probably exhausted and very distraught parents talking to authorities in a strange country and this perhaps ended in a miscommunication of what name belonged to whom. Can't imagine the amount of stress David and Celia would have experienced under the circumstances.

The passenger list has Esther down as "inf" in the column that is for children under 1 year of age so it does look like Esther and David must be the same child.

Hello again....

You mentioned earlier that you were descended from both mentioned families which suggests a marriage united the lines at some point. Was this in Quebec? Do you have the record? Would you feel comfortable posting about it here if not too recent?

I'm afraid I can't help you with research in France but there is a Europe-related board on RootsChat in case you haven't seen it.

Hello there.

This link has some info about about the burial of Nicholas plus some other notes. Sources included.

My thoughts....

If Jeanne (who married Guillaume) was b. ca. 1575 and her mother was about 16 when she was born, Jeanne (the mother) would have been about 70 years old or so by the time Nicholas was born. If she was older when her daughter was born, she would have been even older when Nicholas was born. I don't see how it would be possible for Jeanne and Nicholas to have the same mother.

Technically, Jeanne and Nicholas could have had the same father if Jeanne's father married a second woman also named Jeanne Vincent. I have no idea what the odds of that happening would be?

Anyway, food for thought.


The GRO index has an Arthur Joseph Brown b. Dec qtr 1899 Pancras R D which would fit with the quoted birthdate and a London birthplace. Mother's maiden name Merrifield.

Hello again.

I have just been reading through this older thread and have realized that I appear to have made a wee slip of the finger when I typed in some dates.

Pierre and Genevieve's marriage should, of course, read 1771; Marie Marguerite's birth and baptism should read 1795; and Marie Rosalie's death should read 1798.

My sincere apologies.


Added: I have linked this thread to the original poster's new thread.

Hello there...

There are very enthusiastic searchers on RootsChat who might go over some ground previously covered even if it might be not be related to the present question so I thought I would post a link to your other thread about this couple.

Charles and Gladys also arrived in 1923 with their parents.

It's a great deal to absorb considering where you started from a couple of days ago.
