Great finds must be the son Ian to Alexander and Francis on his second marriage

My reLatives thought he was John but I think there is some kind of situation where some people called Ian and John are called vice Versa

That is fantastic finds

Thanks all for your time

Hope we can keep finding info

Hi,

From Windsor Public Library an index for the Windsor Star newspaper obituaries,

Samuel, Alexander, spouse Frances, Sept. 15,1962
Samuel, Frances, maiden name Harrington, spouse Alex, June 24, 1997.
http://projects.windsorpubliclibrary.com/digi/obits/results.php?lname=samuel&fname=&maiden=&spouse=&m1=0&y1=0&m2=0&y2=0&lim=25&search=Search

Since you have the exact date of the obituary, you can ask the Windsor Library for a quick look-up.

Iam
So thankful for all your efforts


The address mentioned is where Alexander’s brother James stayed in peterhead they had been visiting and all
Adds up now


Would there be anyway to find what happened to helen and Robert Mcintosh and to see if they had any family ?

Also wonder where the Constance marie and Gladys Ann Samuel went ? Which was Alexander’s 2 daughters


This is fascinating thanks for all your time folks

Ryan
