George W Welbourne married Elsie May Cox any further info ?
« on: Saturday 16 September 17 01:14 BST (UK) »
George W Welbourne B 1909 D 1978 who Married Elsie May Cox B 1912 D 1976
Elsie had a sister Irene May Cox B abt 1915

Elsie and Irenes father was Arthur Bryon Cox 1888 - 1925
There mother was Florence Brown 1889 - 1974.. Florence had a brother Robert Wright Brown B 1896 married Marie Ferguson McCarlie B 1893

Florence and Robert Brown - Mother was Mary Wright 1864 - 1942 - She married Robert Findlay Brown

I am particularly interested in the Maternal side of Elsie and Irene Cox coming through the Wright family where a number ended up in the Toronto area of Canada.. Mary Wright had siblings = Jane Wright, Margaret Morland Wright, John Morland Wright & Alex Cairns Wright.. He married a Keturah Anne Tindall...

Would love to identify further on the Wright family but wonder if the Subject header couple had any family ?

Any further leads on the people mentioned I would be grateful

Thanks

Elsie M Welbourne's obituary says that she had 2 children.  She died Dec 22, 1976.  Wife of George.  Mother of Mrs H E Clasper (E. A.*) and Mrs B P Ould (M).  Grandmother of E G Clasper, J A Clasper and G W Ould.  Sister of Jean Audrey Smith.  Interment Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

Toronto Star, 24 Dec, 1976, page C8. 

* I didn't use full names...if Elsie was born in 1912, then her daughters are most likely still living.  The husbands of the two daughters are listed by initials in the obits, but the daughters' full names are given.  Will PM you.
