William McLeod and Janet Pollock; William Pollock McLeod
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 18:48 GMT (UK) »
Hi everybody,

I am looking for anyone who has ancestors called William McLeod and Janet Pollock? There son William Pollock McLeod married my great great aunt Jean Donaldson Ferrier in 1931 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am basically wondering if anyone out there has any photographs of William and Jean and their life in Canada?

Also I should add on William and Jean's marriage certificate, he is recorded as being a widower, so if there are any descendants from his first marriage it would be great to hear from you!

Best way is to try and follow the family forward - have you done this or attempted to do this.  It can be quite difficult in Canada because of privacy laws.  ???

Do you have William Pollock McLeod's obituary from the Winnipeg Free Press??  Date - May 11 1948, page 12. 

In case you don't have it... it says he was a steamfitter with the firm of Cooper and Farquhar.  Retired in 1933.  He was aged 63 when he died.  He had lived in Sandy Hook, Manitoba and died at Deer Lodge Hospital on Monday (would have been May 10, 1948).   He was born in Glasgow and came to Canada 38 years ago.  During the First World War, he served with the 18th Battery.  Survived by widow Jean.  He was a member of Elmwood Presbyterian Church.  Burial in the military plot inside Brookside Cemetery.

Scotlands People show his birth as 1885 registered Govan

Was he previously married as he would have been 46 when he married Jean in 1931

Names sort of ring a bell - this was a related thread back in 2014
A relative tried to contact but there was no reply from you  ??? With 2 posts the message system might have worked - is there an update  ???
