Noah Wheatley
« on: Friday 10 September 10 09:43 BST (UK) »
After studying the Oakland Tribune, I find Eleanor Wheatley seems to have been married X3! William Kusserow, (she went back to America in 1939. leaving him in Switzerland where he was studying chemistry) Mr Moore, she was mentioned as “Mrs. Eleanor Moore” in the notice of Noah’s funeral, and as Eleanor Sullivan on the Weald site. http://theweald.org/N10.asp?NId=23031872

Also, in the interview with Mrs. Wheatley, it says, “Mique and his younger brother left their farm home in Sussex, England after their farther died. Mique was 14”. This is wrong, because (Noah) Mique came from Beckenham Kent, but it is an understandable error, as his farther was also Noah and was from Sussex. Noah was the founder of Mothers cookies in America. The younger brother I would think was Herbert, as he also went to Canada (according to the Weald, he died in British Columbia) but, and here is the Twist, they were sent out as under,

In the 1890's Alexander Duncan and Carrie Taylor too in two boys, Herbert and Noah Wheatley, from the Dr. Barnardo Home in England. These British Home Children were sent out to farms to help with the chores and other work until they turned 18. Herbert Wheatley came to Canada when he was 13 years old arriving in 1890 on the S.S. Circassian from Liverpool 19 June 1890 arriving in Quebec 30 June 1890. Grace Joyce had the small wooden box given to the Barnardo children for their possessions which had belonged to Herbert. After many years of searching she was finally able to return it to his family who were living in British Columbia. Noah Wheatley went to Oakland, California.

Noah seems to have sailed on the Norwegian (shown as N Wheatley – my conclustion) source http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/home-children/001015-119.01-e.php?&id_nbr=33076&&PHPSESSID=j9c80di0cdub9g002ppd2to1n5
, and Herbert sailed on the Circassian source http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/home-children/001015-119.01-e.php?&id_nbr=32205&&PHPSESSID=km0vpf3m972aa8vuhhq40ca1g7 he also married Mary Lancaster in 1918 in Bedfordshire England! (Source The Weald)

First, I wonder what happened to William Kusserow?
And, can anybody help with the Noah/brother mystery (sailing on different ships and dates)?

Have you contacted Barnardos directly for more information on the Wheatley's. They kept very good records of the children that were sent to Canada and also had followup records of the children and the families they lived with. Barnardo's is still in existence so you should be able to contact them.

http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/index-e.html

1891 Census of Canada/Toronto/119 Toronto West/St. Andrews Ward
Innumeration date 18 april 1891
Noah Wheatley, age 13
was living with a group of boys at Barnardo's Home on Farley Avenue, Toronto.

No sign of Herbert on the census even though his date of arrival in Canada was 1890. He may have been under the name of the family he was living with.
I noticed on the write up that Alexander Duncan and Carrie Taylor married in 1898 so if that is the case, Noah and Herbert would have been 20 and 21 at the time of the marriage.
