Smith family origin of Aberdeenshire Scotland
« on: Monday 11 June 18 11:31 BST (UK) »
Trying to trace the family of Alexander smith born in strichen , Aberdeenshire around 1892 his parents are Alexander smith and Jessie Webster

Alexander arrived in Canada around 1911

And married 11th March 1914 to Isabella Reid born 1889 monymusk aberdeenshire to parents Joseph  and Isabella Reid

Alexander died 13th Oct 1938 , York Ontario and Isabella died around 1972 presume in same area as found the headstone

I would like to trace the sons and daughters of this couple

John reid smith born around 1915 - Ontario
Alexander j smith born around 1917 - ontario
Jessie smith born around 1919- ontario

I have seen the 1921 census of Canada and this family are listed Toronto north district 132 , ward 5
Street 60 green sides ave

I don’t know anything about the family apart from the dates of deaths of the parents

Does anyone know anyway of finding more out about the family

Maybe there was more children etc .

I guess most of this children would be deceased now ,

Wanted or try and see if any more info on this family is available

Alexander's obituary in the Globe and Mail newspaper doesn't have a lot of information... it is in the Oct 14 1938 edition, page 24.  It says he died at St. Michael's Hospital on 14 Oct 1938.  Late of Schomberg and Islington.  Husband of Isabella Reid.  Interment Park Lawn Cemetery

Hi there.

I can't help with further info but with John's death being relatively recent(ish), I wonder if the funeral home might consider passing a message on to the family? (assuming they still have current contact info, of course)

We search for information but it is up to the thread owner to verify that it is correct.
