William George Thomas Milton (d 1933 in Montreal)
« on: Saturday 17 September 05 20:53 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am trying to find any traces of William George Thomas Milton in Canada.  He was born on 16 May 1893 in Brighton, Sussex to George Milton and Rose Plain.  He married Edith Annie Spratt in 1918 in Somerset, England.  They had one child, Gerald William Milton, in 1927.  Sometime shortly thereafter William and Edith separated and he left for Canada.  According to the LDS website he died on 30 Jan 1933.  The source of the information is "Record of members, 1900?-1930; Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Montreal District (Quebec)."
I am trying to find out anything about William once he arrived in Canada and would like to learn who registered his death.

Any ideas?

Regards

Mark:

Here is the website for Quebec Vital Statistics:

http://www.etatcivil.gouv.qc.ca/English/

This should be the Quebec GenWeb site but I can't double-check because it won't load for me right now:

Could this be your Milton arriving in Canada?

Milton, William 
Age: 30 
Nationality: English
Date of arrival: 1930/04/19
Port of arrival: Saint John , New Brunswick 
Ship: DUCHESS OF ATHOL , Canadian Pacific 

Page: 33  Microfilm reel: T-14856 

 These films are very dark and hard to read, the disclaimer points out that some of the info may be incorrect. So even tho' the age might be a bit off, it might be worth a thought

Hi,
Thanks.  This looks like him.  He left his wife sometime after his son was born in 1927 so the timeframe would work.  As you point out, the age is a bit off, but perhaps the age is really 36 rather than 30 (if the films are difficult to read).

Thanks once again.

Regards

This is a long shot but are you still looking for information on William George Thomas Milton? I am related to Edith Annie Spratt who married him.

Mnmilt has been on RootsChat relatively recently but may not have received notification of your message since this is such an old thread. You have enough posts now to use the Personal Message system so I would try sending him a PM.

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

Thank you again as you can see from the previous thread, it is a very sad and difficult link. I will try a personal message. I would love to find a relative, who knows what happened back then.
