Thanks.  Do you know when he left for Canada - passenger list or anything?  Is he home in 1911.

There's no death of a Helen McIntosh, other surname Samuel, in the Scottish death indexes. So it looks as if Helen at least did not die in Scotland.

James McIntosh and Margaret Sharp were married in Dundee in 1878. If you go to www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk you can download at modest cost an image of their marriage certificate. This will tell you the full names of all of Robert's grandparents incuding his grandmothers' maiden surnames.

If Robert was recorded as aged 13 in 1901, he would have been born in 1887 or 1888.

I did see a border crossing in 1920 but canít be sure if itís him as there are a lot of Robert Mcintosh in the results but could well be him ,

What I know is quite brief but there is a wedding cert and a border crossing for his future wife when she crossed in may 1927 they married in November 1928

Helen Samuel was on a Canadian Passenger List not a border crossing in May 1927 -
Southhampton to Quebec on the Empress of France - arriving 7 May 1927

reply 12 - this thread - http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=791324.9

and in reply 60 - we know that Helen McArthur was mentioned as a relative of John McDonald on his death certificate (1932) - there didn't seem to be another Helen in the family that came to light.  ???

More questions than answers but also bear in mind that although we found a marriage record for Helen Samuel to Robert McIntosh 23 November 1928 in York Ontario.  The death certificate of John McDonald in Toronto, had a relative names Helen McArthur. So did Robert Mcintosh pass away ? Did Helen and Robert divorce ?  Is Helen McArthur, Helen Samuel McIntosh
