Henry (Harry) Baron born Lancashire 1878, died Vancouver 1961
« on: Thursday 09 November 17 02:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Harry Baron was a first cousin to my grandmother, his father being the brother of her mother.

I'm looking for descendants of Harry, who married Marianne (May) Keeble in Suffolk, England in 1903 and emigrated to Canada in 1908. I believe they had three children all born in Canada (possibly Alberta), one of whom, Joyce, married William Davies in 1935.
I was in touch with Joyce and William's daughter in Vancouver some years ago but contact has been lost.
As this involves living people could anybody having current contact with any of the family please PM me rather than post contact details on this forum.

Maec

Baron (of Blackburn), Chadwick (Oswaldtwistle), Watkins (Swansea), Jones (x3 Swansea), Colton (Shropshire), Knight (Shropshire/Montgomery) , Bullen (Norfolk), White (Dorset)

Thank you so much, Sandra.
I have little knowledge of Canadian resources and you've got me off to a great start here, including that one of the childrens' names I was given was, in fact, the son's wife, not a sister. It will be interesting to see what else comes up.
