OK, I have started searching for Ellen and Peter's children.  So far I have found children Ann, William #1, Victoria, Frederick, Alfred, Unknown and William #2.  I have also found the burial records for Ann and William #1.  I have found the baptism for Alfred, Unknown, Victoria, William #2 and Frederick.  Now I am a little stuck.  I haven't had luck finding anything else.  Am I just too tired that I am not seeing anything?

Did you notice that that the death record for one of the twins had both George Garth and John Gall (who is probably Julia Garth's husband) as witnesses? Another circumstantial piece of evidence to connect the 3 Garths to each other, perhaps.

Hard to find info going forward. Much of the 1851/2 Montreal census seems to be missing. I found Peter in 1961 with William and Alfred. No sign of any other possibly surviving children so far.

Do you know about the Montreal Directory?

I stumbled across something that said Peter Cooper was an accountant for the Gas Co. or Company of which George Garth was the head of. 

I did notice the George Garth and John Hall on the baptisms.

Today I found a reference for the Montreal directory but I haven't looked at the directories yet (too tired).  It would be nice if I could find online off versions of it to make searching easier.

So I dug through the papers my cousin has and wouldn't you know it, very little on the Garth family and nothing on Julia and Ellen  :'(

I am slowly researching Julia and Ellen's children.
