John Graham and wife Harriet Rounde
« on: Saturday 27 June 20 19:39 BST (UK) »
Hi
 I am looking for any information at all about John Graham ( 1887-1974)and his wife Harriet (Round)(1891-1977) who emigrated to Canada 1913 from Cambois Northumberland England to London Ontario. They had two daughters Thelma Graham born 1914 and Helen Mary Graham born 1924.

Thelma married Reginald Dunscombe 1935 and had a daughter Helen Myrna (1935-1962)
Helen married Thomas A Moorhouse.

I would love any information about the family John Graham was my 2x great uncle I believe they lived in London Ontario.

Thanks Barbara

Thelma and Reginald Dunscombe's marriage certificate is on familysearch.  It says Thelma was born in Hamilton, Ontario

It is also stamped with a date of divorce....1954

You can view the image for free at the familysearch site.

Thanks everyone for your help I have looked for the 1921 census for weeks now - obviously not in the right place!!
Are there any obituaries available for the family? Thelma and Reginald had a daughter Helen Myrna Dunscombe who died 1962 aged 27.

thanks Barbara

The 1921 record is a bit tricky to find.   The writing of the surname is very hard to read.  I am not surprised that the transcribers had trouble.   I used the name Thelma with no surname, location Middlesex, Ontario. 

Toronto Star 14 April 1944 page 2 - Casualty lists
Wounded - Canadian Armored Corps
Reginald Walter Dunscombe Tpr:  Mrs Thelma Dunscombe (wife) 113 Huron St, London.

Globe and Mail newspaper 28 Sept 1954 has Divorces - Applications for Judgement Absolute Granted.  Reginald W and Thelma Dunscombe are listed.   Fits with the information stamped on their marriage certificate.
