1954 • Montreal, Quebec, Canada            Family Tree on Ancestry

Death  Rebecca Craig Woods
31 Dec 1985 • Saint Jerome, Quebec        Family Tree on Ancestry

That is all the information on Margaret and Rebecca.

You are correct that the Isabella that lived in Co Cavan's father was Thomas.  I have not been able to locate any records of when or where Isabella travelled to either USA or Canada.  The family appeared to travel between Ireland and the States of Canada many times.   

Thank you so much everyone for all your effort, unfortunately I have had to resort to sometimes using information on Family Trees in Ancestry that do not have any sources attached to them.  I have searched the Irish records BMD for Isabella and can find no evidence that she either married or died in Ireland.  She shows up in the 1901 and 1911 census and she witnessed the marriages of 3 of her siblings in Ireland in 1902, 1911 and 1919.  Thanks Again  Angela

I have my doubts about that 1911 passenger list record for Rebecca Woods....if Rebecca married Mr Woods in 1919, she would have been "Rebecca Craig" in 1911...not "Rebecca Woods".

Correct that is not Rebecca Craig Woods, I checked the Irish census for the family and they don’t exist.  Interestingly her husband William Woods is on the marriage certificate as a Soldier returning from Winnipeg, Canada, this is 1919 so presumably he was returning from war.  A number of my relatives went to Ontario in 1913.  Thank you again this is wonderful information.  Angela
