Just to Summarize (in my mind)
Jane and Florence were last recorded travelling to Canada in 1924

What became of them after that is anyones guess
I remember( as a child)  that they visited us (from Honolulu) but we were not at home and left no  contact address .

Thanks everyone for your help .Maybe one day the puzzle will be solved.

Thanks again

Hi All Thanks for your help on this subject
I am still working. Between 1919 and 1927 they travelled 14 times I have found and as far as I know settled in Honolulu.
My latest findings are that both ladies sailed from Liverpool to Colon (Cuba) July 1927on the `ORDUNA`

Also they applied for citizenship and Naturalization both lived in USA at the time
This record was on Ancestry but I dont have membership. Maybe someone would be kind enough to confirm this for me.

Thanks again

Hi All
Still looking for info on Jane E Smith and Florence Barrett (sisters)
JANE E ( Born Barrett) 1884 Kidderminster
              Married Eldred Smith in 1912 (he was born 1879 Leigh Lancs and died 1914 Fylde)
FLORENCE (Flo) born 1898 Halifax

After the death of Eldred the two sisters travelled extensively finally settling (I think) in Hawaii
I have lots of info on their sailings 1919-1927 but have now drawn a blank.
Please look at my previous posts if you think you can help.

If you don't have the information already, it might be helpful to get an exact birth date for them.  If they subsequently remarried, it may be easier to find them with a birth date.
