I have been told this week that Stewart Bertram GRAHAM and Effie Pearl ROBERTSON were married late as in the 1960s or early 1970s.
My family is unconfirmed on the year and I am unsure of how solid the information is.
I could not find out if this was Pearls' first marriage and am unable to find out where in Canada.
Stewart and Pearl lived in Vancouver, BC and died. I have Pearls' death rgistration and am waiting this year for Stewarts' to be released.
Since Pearl and her family has lived in BC, Saskatchewan, and  Manitoba;
and Stewart is from Ontario, I just cannot say.

I have asked Cebe to help in  a couple of other family members GRAHAM and McINNIS.
It must be a tough research as I have not heard from him in a few weeks.
 
I have a third family member.
John George GRAHAM b1878 in Cumberland step-brother to Stewart Bertram GRAHAM.
Family says he went to either Australia or New Zealand. 
I have had help in finding John Georges' sister Eleanor who married in Winnipeg and immigrated to Australia but I fail to find her brother there in Australia.
On the New Zealand forum there does not appear to be a general look up request forum but instead I need to pre-determine where a person would be and then request for that particular area.

Could this be your John George Graham in Canada:

I have Pearls' death rgistration and am waiting this year for Stewarts' to be released.

I know the second name is a bit off for Stewart and the age for Effie but I thought these could be the death registrations for the two of them.

Name:  Stewart Bertman Graham
Place:   Vancouver
date:    December 18, 1989
event:  Death
age:  79              Reg. #: 1989-09-021846  Microfilm:  B17125   GSU # 1709284 copy available

Names: Effie Graham
place:   Surrey
date:    January 1, 1990
event:  Death
age:  78                Reg: #: 1990-09-000089  Microfilm: B17141   GSU # 1709286

That would mean they died just 13 days apart and right at Christmas no less.  :-\

Sorry Jacquie,
I could not successfully open that link.
I have tried a St. Catherines, Lincoln County census John George married,
with a brother Robert.
It does not seem to be the right one.
That seemed so close as Robert but was born in 1886 in Durham or Northumberland.
I forgot that he too is a missing member of my family, and no-one seems to recall where Robert went.

Hi dollylee,
Pearls' death registration states Oct 1981.
I do not know this other Effie from Surrey or what family connection there might be.
I do know they lived in Vancouver.
The Stewart you found is the same.
The library has not recieved this microfilm yet so I cannot see the registration until the library recieves the microfilm.

Hey Razzy,

I was at the library and looked up the John Robertson obituary, who died on December 31, 1972.  The information lines up with what you have. 

As well his gravestone at the cemetery, which he was buried in the soldier's field.  I took pictures of the gravestone if you are interested.  Ellen's obituary is probably in the Calgary paper, I do have access but it's through the University.

Lastly I checked for an area history book from Paddockwood, their are some Robertson's mentioned but could not tell if they were yours since I didn't have the information at my fingertips.

Talk to you soon,
Jeff

I was at the library in Vancouver last week(?), I tried the obits on Stewart GRAHAM and was unsuccessful in searching the Vancouver Sun and the Province -the only two papers.
I was pressed for time, I did not check if Pearl had an obit to see if possible where they married, or when.
I will have to do this, maybe there will be some clue.

After I will see if I can see when the ROBERTSONs came to Canada. David and Mary seem to have been born here so it will go back to their parents.

Sorry Jacquie,
I could not successfully open that link.

I fixed the link. It's the attestation papers for a John George Graham born 1877 in Cumberland, England.

I was looking for my previous thread on John George and St. Catherines, Lincoln County, Ontario.
May (his wife) sounds like the same family in St. Catherines.
There was a brother Robert living with them.
I checked the 1911 census but did not find him.
I wanted to see when he arrived in canada, parents, if John George went to Australia or New Zealand by 1920ish.
I believe I ran into a brick wall on that. John George and Roberts father came in 1895.
Whether John George, Robert and others decided to return to England, then come back to canada is just a thought, a guess.
I just do not see them in the later census'.
