Canada Voters List 1957 and 1958 shows a Joseph Fountain (retired) at 43 Donald Ave York South Ontario. Also Ellen Fountain.

That seems to tie in with the address on the marriage of Effie to Vincent Vinelli.  ;D

Just slightly different spelling on the surname -  Article in the Ottawa Citizen August 8th 1946 - Mrs Effie Vanelli charged with killing her husband in Toronto ?

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for all your help.  Joseph was born 1880 in Sunderland, England.  His wife Ellen Brown was born 1881 in Morpeth, England.  Their daughter Elsie born 1906 in Sunderland.  The marriage records have Elsie as Effie George when she married Mr Vanelli her second husband.  And when she married George it was Elfie Fountain.  This is amazing...I wondered how first Husband died...

The Toronto Star archives are online at the Pages of the Past website, I believe they are not very expensive to search or hopefully, someone with access might come along and find something more positive.

Canada voters List 1935 - Mr Vincent Vanelli (labourer) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli (married woman) - 16 Marshall Boulevard York West Ontario.

Canada Voters List 1940 - 16 Marshall Boulevard - Mr Vincent Vanelli (baker) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli.

Canada Voters List 1945 - 75 Gray Ave. York West. Ontario. Mr Vincent Vanelli (baker) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli.

No record on Voters List after this date. Although there are a couple of entries around 1965 which could be a son of the same name  ???

Interesting Canada Voters 1968 - 51 Cornwallis Drive - York Scarborough Ontario. Could be a son with a wife and Mrs Elfie Vanelli (retired)  ???

Sandra this is fantastic...last night I only discovered the marriage of my 2nd great grand aunt Eliza  to Tom Fountain.  Eliza and Tom were the parents of Joseph.  The grandparents to Elsie/Elfie.

I know Vincent may have been born in 1905 in Italy, possibly Montalto Uffugo Italy.  His parents were Ralph Vanelli and Clare Cinicola.  Be really amazed to discovered what happened to Joseph and Ellen.  If they had further children?  And whether Elfie had children, I will look at all you have kindly provided.

In 1927 Elfie was at 43 Donald Ave, and Vincent at 366 Oakwood Ave.
