A Jeannie S. Anderson married Ralph S. Panrucker 1933 Red Deer.

Ralph Stuart Panrucker, h/o Jeannie Stanton, born Red Deer died 01 Aug 1994 Mission, B.C.
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/95357741
Hard to decipher his wife but looks like Jeannie S. died in 2002

Excellent finds cosmac :) :)

Here is Jeannie's obituary...about a third of the way down the page

RK

The info contained in the obituary alone has just given me about 50 relations I had no idea existed! This morning I didn't have any Anderson family relations in Canada and I didn't know if Jeanie Stanton Anderson survived infancy in Scotland and it turns out she lived to 97 in Canada!

Cosmac and Runkitty, thanks again!  :D :D

Here is Jeanie Stanton Panrucker's record from findagrave.  She is in the Hatzic cemetery, Frazer Valley Region, B.C.  The tombstone just shows the year of death.  Someone has added the date of death as 8 May 2002.... the obit says 3 May 2002.  Maybe the 8th was the date of burial... or perhaps someone mistranscribed a 3 as an 8 or vice versa.

If you want to contact some of the Canadian relatives... you can look for them on the Canada411 online directory

Death certificate for James Paten Anderson... parents John Anderson and Jeannie Stanton.

http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Image/Genealogy/1d542481-2c4a-4fb6-ae0a-e5f9916bbe7e

He died Feb 28 1990.  His wife was Margaret Jean Hunter.   Informant is James's son... so you likely have more relatives in Canada!!!

Total guess... but I found a William Alexander Anderson 1912-1999 on findagrave

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/184069797/william-alexander-anderson

No idea if he is yours... the death certificates on the Royal BC Museum site only go up to 1996, so I can't cross reference.

Great find Runkitty! I think you're right, the Canadian relatives are mounting up! Thanks again, much appreciated. :)

I found a death certificate today for William Anderson, born on 23/11/1911 and gave date of death as 31/08/1990 in Minnesota, US. Don't have any further details. This the same date of birth for William Anderson that I have when he was born in Cowdenbeath, Scotland. This may be our man or its a remarkable coincidence!

Your Minnesota William Anderson sounds good!!  It is not at all unusual for people to move from Canada to the USA - or vice versa.
