Canada / Dora POst last seen Ottawa 1960's
« on: Friday 05 March 21 17:44 GMT (UK)  »
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 Sarah’s 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.

Not able to read second name
first one is John Mason
Thanks Branchingout!

Canada / Thomas Francis Mason last seen Manitoba, Canada
« on: Saturday 27 February 21 19:27 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking to find out what happened to Thomas F. Mason after his wife passed away on Oct 14 1900. Her name was Elizabeth (Pott). They married on 26 Jun 1895 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They had 3 children together and 6 months after having her last child she passed away. The children were farmed out to relatives to care for and no one knows where Thomas went. We do know that Thomas was born on June 10 1873.

This is a statement given by a now deceased relative back in 1992.
 "As a young girl, Elizabeth went to work in Emerson for the livery man who also delivered the mail as far east as Stuartburn. She would rent a team and driver to take her home for the weekends. Tom Mason who also worked at the livery stable was the one allocated to this job. As a result Elizabeth became Mrs. Tom Mason. They had three children. Shortly after her daughter Violet was born, Elizabeth passed away. She was only 25 years old. "
