Thank you, Sandra. Even as I wrote it, I thought Kensington sounded more like a place on Ontario than Quebec. I will check the censuses to find wife and children. Great.

How we have a problem if Rachel is Williamís sister as we have his sister Rachel married to Leonard Watterson and she died in Glasgow in 1869 and her parents were given as John Watterson and Mary Sands. Oh I see on findagrave that Rachel is his daughter. All is good.

Yes, snap I was thinking of the other Rachel again  :-\

Yes, it is Quebec.

Comprehensive tree on ancestry for that side of the family

I am reviewing all this info on Jane Martin nee Watterson. First of all, when the obit says she died at the home of her daughter Mrs. J. H. Butler, that would be Agnes married to John Henry Butler. That's the simple observation.
The big question still is who are Jane's parents? We have obits but we do not have a death certificate and would it name her parents in Idaho in 1908?  There is confusion online although most trees say her parents were John Watterson and Martha Martin. But they say John was born 1817 which is just not logical since Martha was born 1802/1803. I am still waiting for replies from Castledawson, Kildress and Ballinderry regarding Jane's baptism. I  have been told that if the baptism is not at Woods (which it is not), it is quite possibly at Ballinderry. Some trees say Jane was born Isle of Man, Lisnamorrow - well, Lisnamorrow is not on the Isle of Man.
We do have a burial record but even that is confusing. Gives her  parents as Leonard Martin and Eliza Martin - well, Jane's father would hardly have surname Martin.
