Not if the information you gave was correct because everything matches.

Looking for descendants of Lena Heywood (b. 1910) Toronto area. Parents were Harry and Alice.

Ah yes thanks Sandra, yes I see now. It was Lena's mother Alice Heywood nee Leach who was Richard's sister. For a moment I mistakenly thought Lena was Richard's sister  ! Doh!

RK did you proud with the marriage and obit info.

At Toronto on Friday, January 8, 1988, Lee Heywood, beloved wife of William Edwin Menendez; sister of Harry Heywood..................

Sandra

Lena's obit in the Toronto Star says basically the same thing - just adds funeral home information and says interment Forest Lawn Cemetery.   No children or grandchildren mentioned.   

Maybe Harry has some children?

I'm still not too sure the 1929 arrival is the same Lena Heywood, birth c.1904 according to her age.

No I think you have to forget that information - the age was incorrect and we have the first marriage of Lena (of the correct age- with the right parents) to Frank Winfield.

Reply 9 shows Lena with parents on the Canadian 1911 and 1921 census

Would be interesting to find Harry Heywood Jnr and Edna Whissler - so far they have evaded me.  :-\
