Fanny Rose Smith
« on: Sunday 06 December 15 14:47 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I am looking for any information on Fanny Rose Smith (nee Dewson). She was born in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England in 1854. I think she emigrated sometime after 1901.Her son Cecil Thomas joined the Canadian overseas expeditionary force in Feb. 1917. According to the attestation paper Cecil was a farmer and they lived in Umphrey P.O. Saskatchewan. His brothers, Harry Lawson Smith and Frank Maxwell Smith also emigrated to Canada. They are also on the 1921 census. Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.
Regards

Hi Sandra
Many thanks for all this information. and so quick!
Harry and Frank also had a sister Alice Dewson Smith - the surname was correctly transcribed.
She was married to Edward Arthur Thurlow. Alice died in LA, Caifornia in 1939. So I guess that's why the brothers ended up there. They had a son Woodrow Eaton Thurlow, he was born in Alaska in 1926 and died in LA in 2005.
Any information on Fanny Rose would be fantastic.
Regards
