* COMPLETED *Helena Omond nee Stevenson Comox B.C.
« on: Wednesday 09 May 12 21:31 BST (UK) »
Can anybody in B.C. help the Scottish Relatives of Helena N Stevenson born near Banff in Scotland in 1880 trace her relatives or her demise.  We know that she married David Omond and that they lived at Glacier View, Comax, Vancouver Island, B.C. for many years.

They had two daughters called Hilda and Isabel.
Hilda married Jim Magee and they lived in Ash Street, Campbell River, B.C.
Isabel married Alan Brown and they lived in Toronto Street, Victoria, B.C.

We reckon that they are all deceased but we would like to think that they have some living relatives somewhere around the world.

Helena sometimes known as Ellie had 11 brothers and sisters all shown on our family tree but we would like to complete the tree with her details (date of death etc.,).

This Stevenson tree stretches back to a marriage in Deskford, Banffshire in 1740 and a birth in 1714 (perhaps!).

Any info on Helena would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

Would the middle initial "N" stand for Northey ?

There is a death record for Helena Northey Omond 12 June 1976 Trail. British Columbia.
Husband David Mitchel Omond.

Was Hilda - Hilda Jane ? Could this be Hilda Magee ?  1913 - 2010 (This would give you the name of a funeral home in Campbell River. British Columbia which might be able to give further information  ???)

http://www.rootschat.com/links/0m86/

There is a Hilda Jane Magee and James Buckham Magee listed on the link below.
Obits appear in the Campbell River Mirror for Hilda (died 10 October 2010 - publication 15th October 2010 and in the Campbell River Courier Island for James Magee (Died 16th April 2004 -publication 21 st April 2004)

Dear Sandra and LindaGW,  May I say "thank you" for your FAST & ACCURATE RESPONSE on Helena which is greatly appreciated at this end.  The names you give are spot on with the notes from my late Mother-in-Law Address book as she was in contact with them over the years.

Helena had 11 Borthers and Sisters most of whom lived to a grand old age thanks to the genes from her parents Alexander Ogilvie Stevenson and Barbara nee. Stevenson who lived in a large Farm House just outside Banff in the NE of Scotland.  The house still stands today but it is somewhat less than the grand place it once was when they were living there.

We will sit down with all your input and get our old brains around it to see where it all fits together in the larger picture of things.

Once again "Many thanks for you brilliant help" on the subject.

Dear All,  Having looked with great interest & appreciation at the Death Certificate for Helena Northey Stevenson born outside Banff in the NE Scotland in 1880 her Father is shown as Alexander Ogilvie Stevenson and her Mother as Margery.  Her Mother was in fact Barbara nee. Stevenson and the Margery mentioned could well be her Aunt who was born 5 March 1828 at Auchanachie Farm near Fordyce (2 years older than Alex O Stev., who was also born there).  Probably a simple error by the witness for the DC.

I put it here to assist someone else who may be reading this thread.

My thanks to Sandra and LindaGW for their valued assistance on this one.
