Sarah Elizabeth Foreman nee West- Woodstock,Ontario
« on: Friday 08 September 17 15:42 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am looking for any information on Sarah E Foreman nee West. I have her husband and children, but am looking for any obituary, burial, cemetery etc.She died 30/03/1906.
Also I am interested in any Woodstock records or newspaper notices regarding her children, Leonard,Albert, James ,Earnest and Violet. I have their partners and children now, but am looking for any added pieces of information to fill in some gaps.
Thanks

Looks like there is an obituary for her in the Woodstock paper.

Here are some other "Foreman" notices from the Woodstock papers.

Wow, thanks that is amazing, it is interesting to confirm George's age as I often wondered whether I had the right man as he was so old. Also another interesting point is that George remarried but he is still buried with Sarah Elizabeth.
Thanks very much

I believe you would have to contact the Woodstock Public Library and ask for them to look up the relevant records for you in their newspaper collection.

I have looked at the site and it seems you have to have a library card and pin number, so that is a shame as it is a case of so near and yet so far, but thanks anyway

Hi,
Thanks I have gone onto their site, but they recommended contacting the Oxford Genealogy Society, so I have done that and asked for their help, so here's hoping.
