Thanks all for the replies,

I see there are Phipps family trees on line mapping out some of the
information already given. Still cannot find a marriage for Rebecca. It
looks like one never took place. Even looking under the different names
found so far. No result. I also cannot find one for her second given marriage
when she was in America.

I see that Rebecca was living back in Scotland  in 1925. On the ships passenger list when she
emigrated it gives address 1 Kirkstyle Cott. Old Monkland. This is the area her family were living.

I am assuming that husband/partner Pickles died WW1 but cannot prove this without
a christian name. Like wise son Robert Whitaker Sinnerton Pickles. where did he end up?
Where did the Whitaker name come from?

Intriguing indeed,the search goes on.
Thanks
bswinno

Looks like Robert Whittaker Sinnerton Pickles went to Canada in 1929
Robert Pickles age 15 arrived Quebec 27 May 1929 aboard the Athenia from Glasgow

Other details:he was born in Bacup. Sponsored by E.S.A. to do farming. Going to Cosser Farm, Lower Gagetown N.B. There are a few other boys going to this farm.

He named his grandfather as Mr John Milligan, 10 Forrest St Glasgow.
Also said neither he nor any member of his family had been to Canada.

Cosser Farm Lower Gagetown New Brunswick
Dr. George Carter Cossar started a training farm for young men, between 15 and 20 years of age, near Stirling, Scotland.
Then in 1910,he purchased a farm in New Brunswick, near Lower Gagetown. The farm was called Cossar Farm, Receiving Home and Distributing Centre for Scotch Lads, bringing Scottish boys from difficult financial circumstances to his farm where they lived and learned Canadian farming practices. In 1928, the farm was signed over to the New Brunswick government for use of boys coming to Canada under the Empire Settlement Act.

Wow,
Now that's very interesting I was about to check further passenger lists later
tonight, great find.
Also gives a Christian name for his grandfather. Milligan was in fact the second marriage
for Elizabeth Sinnerton nee McCord,the grandmother, and the address again is the third time it has shown up.
In fact we know know that his mother Rebecca had passed through Canada on her way to
America. I will now look to see if he followed.
Thanks

Says Robert was visiting while in the army. He was five foot ten, black hair and brown eyes, medium complexion. Never arrested or deported.
Is a bit difficult to read isn't it? :-\

Yes I got the visiting and description  part after my last message.
Going to look and see if I can find his baptism to prove fathers name.
It now says that he was born in Waterford.
