Esther C Ewing b.1889 Seattle/Thos.H. Timson
« on: Tuesday 12 April 16 08:14 BST (UK) »
Hi

I would appreciate any help available finding a marriage of Esther b.1889 and Thomas Harry Timson who was born UK 1891 but arrived in US 1911-14. I have him arriving Quebec August 1911 on the Lake Manitoba aged 19. 
A son was born to them Oct.1915 King Washington so presumably they were married before then.
 Thomas and Esther continued living in Washington.
Esther died 1975 King, Washington and Thomas died Jan.1971 Port Townsend, Jefferson.

Regards
Chooch

The 1930 census says that Thomas arrived in the US in 1915 and had filed his first papers for naturalization.  The year might be off, but the naturalization papers should probably give an exact date of his border crossing.

Thomas H. & Esther Timson are together in the 1916 Seattle city directory. 

There are some Washington marriage records here - http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/Search - but I haven't found them there yet.

The Seattle City directory has them listed together in 1916 which would be a compilation of residents in 1915.  His WWI DRC (1917) lists a wife and child as dependents.  Esther C Ewing is a telephone operator in the 1915 directory, so she is single in 1914 for at least part of the year.

If you search for "Esther Ewing" in the Seattle Times archives here - http://www.rootschat.com/links/0184x/, there appear to be two mentions of her as a bridesmaid in June, 1914.

Again many thanks to you both Genealiza and shellyesq. I would appear  then that Thomas and Esther would have married sometime between abt. mid 1914 and Oct.1915 when their son Donald was born.

Hi, I am spouse of one of Esther and Thomas Timson's grandsons. I have more family information to share if you are interested --- one of the other grandchildren has done some extensive research.

Hello, welcome to rootschat :)

My connection to the Timson family is very distant but Thomas's grandfather Henry/Harry  had a brother Benjamin c.1822 whose widow Eleanor married into my Tillcock family.
Does this track with your information?
