I am very curious in the post on Lawson Groutage. The middle name Lawson has been passed down from generations on the male side of my family. My great grandfather was John Lawson Groutage, my Grandfather was Douglas Lawson Groutage, my Dad Ronald Lawson Groutage and I am Douglas Lawson Groutage.  The other half of our branch has the middle name Leslie.  Family history has four brothers coming over from England in about 1858 or so. Many going to the USA. Would be interested in collaborating. My sister has quite a bit of our history and genealogy.

My great grandmother Ethel Groutage was Evelyn's sister.   She is the one listed as Mrs. F Hunter first name unknown below. I would like to find out more about her siblings.  My cousin and I are trying to put the pieces together. We have limited information. Ethel's 3 children included my grandmother Beatrice Margaret Hunter (Marsh). She ended up in the NC mountains once married to my grandfather.

My great-great-grandfather, John Groutage, followed his son to Canada along with his six other children. He was born November 17, 1850, and died in Trail January 10, 1922. He was buried in the old cemetery. Johnís children: Evelyn Lawson married Agnes Meachem; Edgar Egbert married Eliza Degg; William Alfred married Lucy Meachem (William died in a mining accident in Rossland); Harry stayed in England; Beatrice moved to Seattle and worked with the Salvation Army; Mrs. F. Hunter (married first name unknown); and Mrs. G. R. Matkin (married first name unknown)

Hello mlgraham and a very warm welcome to RootsChat  :)

Ethel first....

You have Ethel as Mrs F Hunter and dont appear to know what the F stands for?

There is a marriage indexed in Calgary Alberta for
Thomas Francis Hunter
Ethel M I Grontage (as transcribed on Ancestry)
1912...date not given
Alberta, Canada, Marriages Index, 1898-1942

This appears to be the family the 1916 census, courtesy of Library and Archives Canada, HOH as Frank....

https://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?app=Census1916&op=&img&id=31228_4363978-00462

There is a death indexed in Calgary Alberta for
Thomas F Hunter
1918
Possibly Ethel's husband?

I note that Beatrice married as Beatrice Margaret Marsh
Father Thomas Francis Hunter
Mother Ethel Groutage
Montana, County Marriages, 1865-1987

It looks like an image for this record is available on Ancestry. It may have additional info. I can't view it at the moment b/c that website isn't working for me at this time.

Did Ethel remarry to a Marsh, then?

The census and Beatrice's records appear to support the 1912 marriage. Also, parental info about Margaret Marsh Byrd in the in the US Social Security Claims Index.

The Matkins to follow.

Now the Matkins...Dorothy Groutage.

I'm not sure if you know about this BC website? It is free to use.

http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Genealogy

If you put just Matkin in the surname slot you will get a number of entries. The death entry for Dorothy Elizabeth Matkin will give you her husband's name, Gerald Reay Matkin, parents, etc. Gerald's is also there and the marriage of their daughter Vivian. I didn't look further...there may be other entries of interest.

There is this possible marriage...

Gerald Reevy Matkin
Dorothy E Grantage     (both names as transcribed on Ancestry)
1914
Calgary, Alberta
Alberts, Canada, Marriges Index, 1898-1942

This looks like Gerald and Dorothy in the 1916 census, still in Alberta...

https://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?app=Census1916&op=&img&id=31228_4363981-00517

And in 1921, now in BC.

https://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?app=Census1921&op=img&id=e002871465

Also, if you put Groutage into the surname slot in that BC website I linked to, you will turn up quite a few related certificates.

You can also search the Canadian censuses for for free through this link courtesy of Library and Archives Canada...

https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/Pages/census.aspx

Can you tell us what in fo you are looking for so we don't duplicate what you already know?
