There is no one named Mason at 96 Main St, Gloucester in 1929 or 1932 directory. no Thomas Mason listed at any address.


I may have given some misleading information, but here is the document that I was given that I took the info from. Not sure what the document really is.  Would you be able to tell me the last names of the persons living at the address at the time.

I have in the most polite way asked questions to the remaining children who were old enough to understand what was going on at the time.  The son remembers nothing and said they had no contact with her except the Mother (Sarah) did as mentioned above. The oldest daughter recalls very little even though she was about 20.   She is 85 now and sometimes the memory  locks out that which you do not wish to remember.  I've sent her another e-mail with a couple specific questions and will wait to see if she responds.
All of Dora's siblings are now deceased.

Looking for the death of a Dora Post/ Smith/ Shaw

Why so many names, briefing:
Dora Amelia Post b: mar 12 1917
married Arthur W. Smith  on Dec 09 1935 Manitoba
Left him and family to marry a Ronald Shaw in 1946
Dora Left Ronald and family to go to Ottawa sometime after 1952.

This was sent to me by a family member recently.

"What we do know is that Dora left Ron Shaw and that she was in Ottawa, she had contacted her mother Sarah as she needed money to pay her rent, Sarah sent her some money for her rent but it was never picked up and it was eventually returned to Sarah. I do not know the exact timeline of these events, they were told to me by my sister Florence; however since Sarah passed away in 1966 my best guess is that it happened in the years just prior to Sarahís passing. No one really knows the time of her passing but most think it was around 1965."


Really all I'm looking for is to find her death and possible burial?

Any help is appreciated.

One last tid bit before I close this off. A relative who saw my inquiry sent me this but he has no idea where it originated from or if its of any value.

"1930 US census of Merchant Seamen in Boston, Mass that had a Thomas Mason"

They're hundreds of Thomas Mason's but why this one specific I have no idea.
Just another piece of A puzzle that may not fit.

Thanks for your help on this, we may have to succumb to the fact we will never know what happened to Thomas Francis Mason after 1901.
