Can anyone find William Archibald Guthro´s two marriages for me please?
« on: Friday 04 January 19 14:56 GMT (UK) »
I believe that Edith Mary Snook married William Archibald Guthro 1914 in Nanaimo Noonas Bay, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. William’s first wife Ann Belanger had died before 1914. They had married 1 Jan 1905 in Hatrick Prairie, British Columbia, Canada.

William Archibald Guthro was the first keeper of the Addenbroke lighthouse he moved up to Addenbroke with his wife Edith from Nanaimo. Keeper Guthro served there from March 23, 1914 until 1921.
 
Edith Mary Snook was born 1881 in Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal.

First marriage is easy to find:

But I can't find the second marriage or a death of Ann.  I do find a possible remarriage for her in 1915, claiming to be a spinster:

Is it possible Edith and William married in the US?

Edith May Snook mentioned as the wife of George Tresidder on the other thread. Not sure if this was proved or disproved ?

Canada Voters List 1949 - George Tresidder - (retired)  Edith M Tresidder - Miss Dorothy (bank clerk) and Mrs Florence E Snook. 2224 buller Avenue - Burnaby BC

There was a death announcement for Edith May Rainey which shows she wasn't your Edith Mary Snook/Guthrie -

You might already have this info..............doesn't appear to be a daughter Bernice who was mentioned before.  She wasn't mentioned in William's obit or in Howards  :'(
The daughter Jane Pickering was the informant.

Howard James Guthro - son of William & Ada ?? Shnook - passed away September 1971 -

Thank you Sandra for the additional details which add another mystery (for me ;D)

Jane Guthro remarried after Richard Pickering died - date not known :'(

2nd marriage to Ron Roberts ca 1981 :-\ I have found a death for Richard Pickering in 1981 but not confirmed it.

Any more help appreciated :)
