I would love hear from my distant cousins or any fellow genealogists who can help me confirm information or fill in any blanks I have regarding my great grandfather’s brother William C. (Charles?) Proctor and his family in Alberta.
What I know so far is:
Born about 1 Oct. 1874 in Ontario – Probably in Euphrasia Township, Grey County, Ontario, near the village of Kimberley. Son of William Proctor and Mary Webb
In the 1906 census there is a 32 year old William Proctor listed at Stettler, Alberta, who was not married.
Married Mary Ellen Clark
Died Aug. 1953 – An obituary found in the Grey County Ontario Archives dated 27 Aug. 1953 states: “MEAFORD WOMAN LOST BROTHER IN THE WEST – While she was completing plans for a visit with her brother Wm. C. Proctor, of Stettler, Alta., Mrs. John R. Randle received the sad news of his sudden passing. Mrs. Randle expected to leave on Monday for the West. Word came Tuesday evening that her brother had passed away earlier in the day. Another sister, Mrs. Richard Solomon also resides in Meaford.”
Children: Gordon, William, John & Helen
I can share the information I have about this family’s roots in Ontario and England.
