The death of Sophia Chiswell nee Sommers
« on: Friday 15 March 19 17:04 GMT (UK) »
Hello good people
Can anyone help me find Sophia's death date please? It will be between 1856, when she gave birth to son George and 1859 when husband Samuel remarried Charlotte Keable. They were living in Springford, South Norwich, Ontario in 1856. She was born about 1829 in Ilfracombe, Devon, England.

Many thanks
Helen

Civil registration did not begin in Ontario until 1869, so there will be no death certificate.  You might be able to find a tombstone inscription if it has survived and has been transcribed.
