The book you referenced by David C Jones is there in its entirety.  Go to the Advanced Search option and put in the title of the book and you can read it all.

There is a tree on ancestry that shows a Mary Elizabeth married to Alexander Robert C. Dawson.  There is a daughter born 31 Mar 1924 Toronto who later marries a Clarence Bertram Henderson born to this couple.  Elizabeth's date of death in Kingston, Ontario is 15 Nov 2002.  Perhaps the library in Kingston could look for an obituary to rule this couple in or out.  It appears that the Henderson's resided in Renfrew area (Voters lists) and they are both buried in Pembroke Wesley United Cemetery, Pembroke, Renfrew. She is shown with Betty and he with Bert. The person with this tree is a direct line descendant.

Thank you for finding that!  Your eyes are good.  It does say he is survived by a sister Mrs. John (Annie) Crosson.  I am satisfied that John remarried Annie Eva Stewart after his first wife's death.  It is not a direct line but I hate it when I make a mistake and then it becomes a fact on many trees and is never changed by the multitude.

I had started following Elizabeth Eva because my father-in-law said his mother had nursed someone in Toronto who was sick.  That person recovered and his mother got sick shortly after and died.  Her death registration from 1917 has never surfaced even though the family was compliant in registering events.  The personnel file I sent for for John Saunders Crosson years ago detailed the changes of addresses for his wife in Toronto for payment of salary.  Elizabeth Eva then went to Monkland to live with her married sister and received payments there in the timeframe that supported my father-in-laws story of nursing a sick relative from not in Toronto.  Guess I wanted to make sure I had an end to that family's story.

Thanks again.

Haven't found contact information for Maplewood Cemetery yet but will keep looking.
There was an Annie Eva Stewart, d/o William Peter Stewart and Mary Elizabeth Braun/Brown, born 12 Jan 1891 Normanby, Grey county which might be Annie.  In 1921 she is living with brother Jacob in Normanby, still single.  Online trees show her as a wife to Roy Crosson and bouncing between Saskatchewan in 1916 and Ontario in 1921.  Doubt if this her although the father of John Saunders Crosson, David, did have relations that ended up in Saskatchewan.  Never really kept track of that as it wasn't a direct line.

Thank you for looking and finding Elizabeth Eva's obituary.  Obviously John Saunders remarried.  Strange that the name is so similiar to his first wife's name.  I will see if contacting the cemetery will reveal anything of interest.
Thanks again.

21 Mar 1906 at Huntsville, Ontario Elizabeth Eva Chapelle d/o Edward Chapelle and Levissa Rawn married John Saunders Crosson.  The surname Chapelle has various spellings as well as Lachapelle although in records Elizabeth Eva never seems to use the "la" in spelling her maiden name.

Her husband, John Saunders Crosson, served in the Forestry Service in WWI and in his military file his death is given as 27 Feb 1964.   That led me to a grave in Maplewood Cemetery, Normanby Township, Grey County.  John Saunders Crosson 1886 - 1964 with Annie Eva buried with him 1891 - 1976.  I was satisfied that Annie Eva was sister to my husband's grandmother.

However there is a death certificate for Eva Elizabeth Crosson of Orchard, Normanby Township, Grey County born 8 Jun 1884, d/o Edward Chappelle and blank Rawn.  Informant was Elizabeth Eva's son-in-law.  Of her children only one daughter survived to adulthood.  Death was 16 Oct 1948 with a burial Mt. Pleasant, Toronto.

Is there an obituary for Eva Elizabeth Crosson?  Or a remarriage for John Saunders Crosson?  Obviously the 1948 death certificate fits for the person related to my husband.  Now I am intrigued as to who is in the grave with John Saunders.

I don't need anything else for this couple.

2 years less a day is a provincial not federal sentence.
He married in Kamsack and died there in the 1960s - you might assume his transgression occurred there.  Have you tried contacting the library in Kamsack - they might have old newspapers available for searching.
I would question your premise that his jail time was in anyway connected to his leaving a wife behind in England.  There could be many reasons why a person could end up in jail.
