Just found a marriage in the Drouin collection

Walter Steinhoff married Anna Nicol
4th Jun 1861 Montréal, Québec (Quebec)
Presbyterian Erskine

John Nicol is a witness, not unlike the signature for John Nicol on Walter's baptism looking at the 'N' I think but I would be much happier if someone could have a look too, as this record is Prebyterian

Just saw that one,willsy!

I think Ann* dies the next year (1862). I THINK it says she died at the residence of her father John Nicol,brush maker of McGill? St. She was 20yrs and 8 months?

Does this look possible for the family:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X19L-6L1

In 1881 I think the Ann WILSON living with the WARMINTONs just might be her mother :

1841 Scotland census has a John NICOL in Barony Middle Calton with wife M Agnes? and children Mary and Isabella. He's a brush maker which fits.

Sorry-have to go. Dinner is late!

Maureen
PS-Well done,willsy!

I don't understand the above.
I think your Walter Steinhoff is not the Walter S Edwards.
Walter S Edwards was born 1861, not married in 1861.
He married Margaret A, not Anna Nicol.
