My Great Aunt Ethel See born August 19 1886 Chatham, Ontario, Canada according to the 1901 Census of Canada, to William See & Alma Butler. Ethel married Thomas William Buckenham Feb 22 1911 in Kent County,Ontario,Canada. They resided in Battleford Saskatchewan. They had two daughters Helen born in 1913 and Alma born in 1914. I have located them in the 1911 & 1916 Census. In my Mother's belongings is a funeral card for Thomas Buckenham born Oct 4 1884 in Ratcliffe, Nottinghamshire,England died Dec 2 1979, burial Maidstone Cemetery.
But have not been able to find a death date for on his wife Ethel my great aunt.
I believe the daughter Helen married the surname Yeo and remained in Sask. The daughter Alma may have married the surname Baker but I think they resided in British Columbia.
If anyone has any information on this family or any ideas on how I can find my Great Aunt's death date would be appreciated.
Posting the 1916 census...https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KMPZ-2YX Don't see any seaths for the daughters offhand. Not she was born 1887 Ont. father William See...What was her mother's name in case we find her that way?
I should have mentioned Ethel's parents name. She is the daughter of William See & Alma Butler.

You have made my mother so happy, she was so upset that she knew nothing of her Aunt Ethel, her mother's sister but your findings does explain since Ethel passed away three years before her birth.

This a great possibility with Mom being hearing impaired she may have thought Baker instead of Barker but she remembered the husband's name as Ray and they resided in B.C.
Interesting find,will most definately take a close look at this tree.
