WOW, thank you so much for all the newspaper entries. The extra one you sent for Myrtle is where it all started. She married a great uncle of mine. I did have a newspaper entry but the one you gave me has a bit more information on it. Albert is from Scotland.

I will have a good read at what you have sent.

Thanks again.
Betty

Thank you for the extra information. I had located Albert and Myrtleís grave in Brookside and got another relative on my husbands side to take a photo of the plot. It would appear that there is no stone but the plot is outlined with edging.
I did have Albertís death notice but again this one is slightly different.  I noted from the Vital Stats site of Manitoba that I could purchase a death certificate for Albert. He and Myrtle died young. Albert did marry again but they only had one year of married life.
I have also located the graves for Ruth and Herbert but I had not found Katherineís so thank you for that. I have not found the parents quoted on the 1926 census.
Thanks again.
Betty

You read my mind. Our messages crossed.

Brilliant. I am certainly putting together a picture of this family who my great uncle married into.
Thanks
