American/Canadian Cousins
« on: Tuesday 14 June 16 18:58 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace descendants of;-

Dudley Gerald Snape     born 1886 circa   Islington, London.
Agnes Catherine Gillies  born 1896 circa   Cogan, Penarth, Glamorgan, Wales.

They emigrated to Canada (where they were married ?) and then onto the United States.

I believe they had several Children.

There is a family tree that says Dudley died 1950 in Toronto and Agnes died 1964 in England while visiting her sister.  It also says that their children were Catherine Adela Snape (1922-1980) and Dudley Barrington Snape (3 Nov. 1928-Sept. 1977), who both died in Toronto.

The Lethbridge Herald (Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada) 29 December 1950 - If Run Kitty comes along she might be able to find an obituary for Dudley which gives us more information on family.

Believe this post would benefit the poster more if it was moved to the Canada Board. Sure more info could be found to help.  ;)
