Dorothy Mary Wilson, divorced, aged 30 married D'arcy Robinson Coupland, aged 45, divorced broker at Vancouver 25 November 1922.

Dorothy's parents is shown as Georgina (nee Hawkings) born Australia and Arthur Nichols, born Bristol, England. Dorothy was also born in Australia.

As there doesn't seem to be BC death records for Dorothy, D'arcy, Georgina and Arthur is it possible they returned to Australia?


DTD

I had found this 2nd marriage for Dorothy, but thank you for your help.   Another lister has found them moving to the US.

Hi Betty,

Pleased to have helped - had a family emergency so had to nip away earlier - great find by John getting that other marriage. The grand-daughter Georgina McEwen (now deceased) was the informant

Husband Edmund George Sawyer - born 1911 and aged 63 years - passed away 29 October 1974 - Gibons BC.
