DRINKWATER, HENRY & MARY WILSON 1884 GALT

DRINKWATER, HENRY & MARY WILSON 1884 GALT

Edited: 1235922642000
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 anything..so 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.

SATCH....Thank you so very much for taking the time to do those look-ups...I was being very careful (as usual) to be sure I was going down the right road..
You showed me the way...so to say the least I am busy gathering each and every bit now....which means ,lots of cold cups of coffee too.
I was attemping to get in touch with Wellington-Waterloo genealogy society,and just this Thur found out they have broken down into 2 groups...so will wait a wee bit and then see what Waterloo has to offer.
Can you advise which paper would have been in Galt in 1909..being that Henry Drinkwater Sr.was truck and killed by an "electric train", ..I am sure it would have been written up.
What we don't do to chase down kin...
Again many thanks..I sure do appreciate it...

A number of these folks are buried in Mountview Cemetery. I'll check for headstone info & then I'll check my local paper - KW Record - for obits as it sometimes covers Galt. I'll also check to see if it mentions the accident.

Cheers, John

John..Thank you so much,it is much appreciated.
It seems we researchers really need the Obits, and grave stones...
I know that for me,they have often added things we new nothing about.

Posting on line has also has also been a terific asset as so often what we seek is not availiable on line at all.
For many years I looked for a Riddell family,only after a posting in Scotland did someone suggest maybe they left there,low and behold I find them in Galt Ont..then I find that these Drinkwaters were rather related and had come out to Galt about 15 earlier..as I read on different census,death,births etc I find a lot of folks from (Hawick) Borders area of Scot settled there.
We do learn lots of history for sure..Thanks again in advance.

OK...looks like Lorne is in the original family home .
For when the 3 brothers signed up in 1915,that was the address of their mother Mary.
Looks like Andrew,Lorne and William are the line I am researching..iffy on the Ivan and the Janette.
In your 1946 book ..is there a James Riddell and wife Herriot.?..I hope I do not have to chase them southside too.
This family I have chased real hard..as I have a 4 generation picture of a RICHARDSON,RIDDELL,HUGGAN,,that I'd love to share with kin..
Many thanks again for all your input.

Surnames: Wilson,Drinkwater,
Many ,many thanks...some I had,some I did not..So I broke them up into sections for study..and will send you my view.

First part..Mary Wilson age 20 listed beside a Janet Wilson age 18..They could well be sisters..When Mary Wilson marr Henry Drinkwater one of the witt.was a Janet Wilson.

Interesting the other Wilson folks on that list
That 1891 census of Andrew Wilson..shows a James K Wilson age 55 and wife Janet age 43...hhhmmm..Not going to jump to any conclusions..

Notes on Christine Spencer and William Drinkwater..note spouse place of birth..Should read HAWICK,ROXBURGH..just the spelling was wrong,I saw that earlier.

I have Andrew Drinkwater marr to Edna Elizabeth Lapp..and I see you have Napp.
I will go back and doubl check my stuff.
