MaureeninNY,

Wonderful!

I will have to get my files out and I remember my grandfather's brother's death was reported by a Thompson.

I would love to find out which Thompson she is. It stated that she was an aunt but I could not recognise her name....

Great! So this lot of Thompsons are related to us via George Thompson since they came from his second wife.

Then, it is very likely that the death record Cosmac found for me is the one.

Both of you are fascinating! I will keep both of you posted on the death certificate.

Cosmac,

You are quick to find these information. You do know your way around Canadian records!! They will be passed onto my Thompson descendant.

Many thanks for confirming the details for me.

Do we have an emigration record on Sarah Ann Calvert nee Thompson? Did she emigrate with her husband Frank Calvert?

The picture is getting clear and clear every time you come up with information.

Thanks so much for your help with finding the information!

PS I like what BC did with their records. Surprised to read the actual certificate there.....

BC has done much with their resources.

Have you seen this site with many photos.  It does link to an online ancestry tree.  That says that Margaret Thompson died in 1937 at Ituna as a result of burns from a fire.
Usually I look for family trees but didn't this time.
I haven't found Sarah's entry into Canada yet.

Cosmac,

I stupidly ended free subscription on Ancestry thinking it is not necessary to continue since I could access to two trees I saw on this site. But, I was not able to access the trees at all only I am able to message. Learnt a lesson here.

One of tree holders I am currently messaging with now, back and forth. It appears she was only relying on her aunt for the information and does not know much about Thompsons.

I saw the photos. They are lovely!!

These photos are not hers, but from someone else on other tree...not sure how she gets them. I did verify some information---most are accurate but need to correct a bit there and here.

Now you said Margaret Thompson died in 1937? Wow...she lived a long life! Poor her for suffering a terrible infliction.

I would have to figure out how to get a free trial subscription again.

Thanks for your help again!! These trees were the reason I posted here! I just was happy that I could break down the brick wall. I thought I am stuck because of too many George Thompsons in the same area in England!

I should know better because 1911 England Census clues me that this family "disappeared"....they were not but in another country!

Possibility for George's arrival into Canada
George Thompson ticket #2207 departing Liverpool arriving Montreal 05 Jun 1903 on the Canada.  Age shown as 56, from Yorkshire, no arrival destination entered.

I think daughter Sarah CALVERT arrived with 2 children on the same ship.

I think you are right.  Good catch.
