Well, drat. I was getting rather attached to my Alpha Centauri theory  :P ;D

Looking at the subsequent 1901 census page I see a couple of capital B's that have to be R's. With Herr Holtzmann's penchant for mixing up his consonants (as well as vowels) I wondered about Rupert. Or even Robert. Didn't find much in 1911 except a Rupert Berry b 1891 England who arrived Canada in 1905...arrival dates usually being suspect...so nothing more than a maybe.

This is driving me nuts  :o

Hi,

Really reaching here....perhaps as far as Alpha Centauri ;D

With the mention of Gordon and Gaetan......

David had a sister Rebecca b. 1890, she is on the 1911 census in London, Ontario with
a lodger named Gordon Tongate b. 1892 England, imm. 1901, an oven loader.

Cheers,

Gordon looks attractive, doesn't he. Ancestry has him as Gordan Tungate. Can't really squeeze To/ungate into the 1901 writing but with this enumerator every entry's a flight of fancy ;D

The 1901's birthday is 19 July 1892.

Tongate's birthday is May 1892.

Found him immigrating, he's transcribed as Tangak, Lpool to Que 29 Jul 1901. Haven't found him in 1921 yet.

too far of a stretch. Back to the drawing board..... ???

Wouldn't Gordon have arrived too late for the 1901 census anyway??

I had another go at this today for a few hours and stopped when I realised I was starting to make up nonsense names.

I was sent this message from a chatter who had found this via genforum.....

Michael Henry Reuben-England/Canada/USA

     of 24

MICHAEL HENRY REUBEN/RHEUBEN,b.conflicting-aug.1,1889/aug.1,1893,NEW CASTLE-ON-THINE,NORTH UMBERLAND, ENGLAND. Believed orphaned at birth? MIGRATED AROUND 1900 TO CANADA. Married-LULU TANNEY NOWLAN-

I wonder.........the dates seem to coincide. Aug 1 1889/Aug 1 1893 (that 3 could well have been a 9 with the top part faded)?

So............Orphaned would mean......... mother/parents died at time of his birth in Newcastle, UK

Did she die in childbirth?

I'm away to search for deaths  :-\

What about the marriage cert?

It may give at least fathers name unless illegitimate....mothers name if he knew those answers?

Annie

ADDED.............??? 1889 is a problem so back to square 1 as he would not have been 9 yrs old in 1901 :-/

No..............I will check deaths for 1893 Newcastle, UK as the 1889 could be an error.

Where was the date 1889 written & when?

To me that info. does kind of look to be him  :-\  ???  ;D
