Only six more deaths and obits to find to maybe narrow Hannah down
Who can help?
I am doing orbits for my own family. And I found that the siblings orbits in regards to living relatives are wrong. So I went to the first orbit of the first parent that passed away and used it. The 2 parent orbit in regards to children surviving was also wrong. So orbits might not be the answer to find who is alive or passed on.
In the case of the 1st obit here we do know it is wrong and that there are at least 6 children still alive when Mr Muir passed away:
Hannah, Esther, Mary Jane, Thomas Henry, Frederick George & Elizabeth Lillian
Yes obits can be wrong but in many cases are right and so very much help the research
Hi Was on the Toronto Star for one hour today searching my family, looked for Esther Moffat obit , could not locate. John Thomas Powell, brother to Joseph Powell, 1920 not available. Robert Prince husband to Lillian MUIR, did locate but no help to finding Hannah, will summit for the family, also found this obit not sure if Hannah niece Lillian Prince married Frederick Thomas Kettlewell, if so have his obit. Sorry but not to helpful in finding Hannah.
Hi Looked on ourontario.ca for a obit for Esther Moffat, tried a few different spellings. just in case, no such luck. Does anyone have any other suggestions where i may look for her obit? Did find a marriage notice for Lilian Muir to Robert Prince, but no mention of Hannah. Again sorry
thanks for your help
There is a croped (to save web space) death record on Hannah's discussion
So rather then double up on images I have deleted the image and am adding the link to the one that is already on here View Death record # 001106
