Surnames: Drinkwater, Wilson,
I am seeking any help I can get on tracing this family.
Henry Drinkwater married Mary Wilson in Waterloo Mar 8 1884.
He was born in England but lived in Rox.Scot before coming to Canada.
Mary Wilson was born and also from Rox.Scotland.
They could well have met on board ship,on the trip over .

His immigartion year to Canada was stated on the 1901 census of Galt,as arriving 1882.
This 1901 census shows he had quite a family of 7 children:Annie,Matilda,Emily,William,Henty,Andrew,and Fanny.

Sadly on Jun 2 1909 in Galt,he was killed by an electric Train.If anyone can dig up this newspaper obit I would be very pleased.OR Where I can order this.

On the 1911 Census,still in Galt is:
Mary age 49 the widow of James and 6 children: Emily,William,Henry,Andrew,Fanny,and Lorne (born 1903).

It looks like the older daughters Annie and Matilda have married.

As these dates are rather newer are genealogical research goes..I can not seem to get my hands on my request goes out to you folks in that area OR any part of the family.
Sorry it got so long...Thanks for reading and many thanks in advance for any information.
