Harold Coleby
« on: Monday 19 June 17 18:15 BST (UK) »
Harold was supposedly born in Canada abt 1894. From familysearch he married Maud Chapman 1 Mar 1915 in London Ontario. The marriage cert shows no parents names. I can find no birth registration nor census info for 1901/11. I found him with Maud and child Harry  in 1920 census living in Royal Oak Michigan. A search of OCFA and genweb shows possible burial in Woodland Cemetery, Waterloo, Ontario.
Can anyone find a lead re Harold where he may have come from and when he may have died?

Hi Ed,

Wonder if this could be Harold (age slightly out) -

Harold Coleby
Age - 11
Birth Date - abt 1896
Departure Date - 12 Sep 1907
Port of Departure - Liverpool, England
Destination Port - Quebec, Canada
Ship Name -
Dominion

As the immigration page records just children perhaps he was part of the scheme - British Home Children.

Sending Organization - Barnardo's

Thanks. That could be him. When searching for burials the OCFA site shows only 3 Coleby headstones in Ontario so a pretty rare family name.

I contacted Woodland Cemetery and their records show that Maude was buried 6 Dec 1971. Unfortunately no date of death nor funeral home name recorded. Also there is no burial record for Harold.
Headstone shows date of birth for both Maud and Harold as 1897 which is correct for Maud. Also records a marriage date of 10 Mar 1914 which is incorrect.
