Three missing Kitchens.
« on: Thursday 22 February 18 12:51 GMT (UK) »

George Albert Kitchen 1882-1963 and Mary Spearing 1882-1957 of Batteaux, Simcoe, Ontario had six children, three of them I cannot account for:

Frank Kitchen
Irene Kitchen married to Gordon Fisher
Albert G S Kitchen 1911-

I would be most grateful if someone could shed some light on them please.

Lots of anc trees -

From anc tree - Albert George Kitchen - 8 January 1911 - 8 November 1964 (no source)
married Ivy, Beatrice Bright (with photograph) - born  23 September 1912 - Shoreditch, London passed away 21 October 1994 - Barrie, Ontario.
Marriage 15 June 1938 - Collingwood Ontario.

Might help if you could locate obituaries for Albert or his brothers

Thank you for your replies.

Frank was married to Ivy, and retired 1979 in Saulte Ste. Marie - I don't know in Canada or across the border in Michigan.

Still trying to access his parents obituaries:

Walter J. Kitchen died 10th December 1997
Lois I. (nee Peacock) Kitchen died 11 November 2002

Again thank you for all of this.
Between my Tree Manager (childhood friend) we had also seen these links, and are already up on my half sister's tree.

It is really just Frank and Ivy Kitchen, Irene Kitchen married to Gordon Fisher, and Albert G S Kitchen 1911- that we have really just drawn a blank.

I understand where you have drawn a blank.  You might have seen the links and have other information, we do not, we haven't got psychic powers and have to look at the bigger picture which includes other members of the family to see if they may unravel any clues.

You say Irene Kitchen married Gordon Fisher - when, where and what year ?  Did Gordon  have any other middle names ?

Sorry, that is all the information we have on Gordon Fisher - no middle name.

I have contacted all of these distant relatives on Facebook, but without any success.

I also tried to find Frank and Ivy in Saulte Ste. Marie, both sides of the border, but again not lucky.
