Note N1191 Index
In the 1944 city directory for Kearney, etc., he and Agnes are noted as "rem" to Cleveland, Ohio. I have no idea what "rem" means - "removed" perhaps. The same is noted in the 1938 directory.
Here is what I found at the Thompson/Hansen website:
Name: William Vorbach Birth Date: 1903 Gender: Male Race: White Residence City: Lakewood Residence County: Cuyahoga Residence State: Ohio Residence Country: United States Death Date: 18 Dec 1974 Hospital of Death: Lutheran Medical Center City of Death: Cleveland County of Death: Cuyahoga Certificate: 089982 Age at Death: 71 Certifier: Physician Autopsy: Yes, used for certification Marital Status: Widowed Census Tract: 1605
Note N1193 Index
She was apparently born and died on April 14, 1937 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Note N1194 Index
I only became aware of her existence when I saw her listed with her brother Nevin in the 1920 census for Kearney, New Jersey. She is shown as a widow, age 59 years old. She was born in Ireland and immigrated to the US in 1882. She was a naturalised citizen.
In the 1900 census, she is shown as having given birth to 6 children, only 2 of whom then were alive. They were Mabel and Arthur. If that is correct, then the Gabriel Thompson who was in prison in 1900 cannot have been their son but rather someone with the same name, born in the same month as their son Gabriel. See the note under Gabriel which says he died in 1888.
She is a widow by 1910 and is living with her two children in Newark, New Jersey. This time she is shown as having given birth to 7 children, 3 of who were still alive. So perhaps it was her son in prison in 1900?
Note N1195 Index
His birth was registered by Sarah Kennedy (relationship to child not given). Could she have been the grand-mother, that is Robert's wife?
Helen Dunn says that his death was registered in New Jersy in 1888 and that he was incorrectly shown as female.
Note N1196 Index
The witnesses were Mary Johnston and Charlotte Smith. Who were they? The presiding officiant was a Robert Johnston so perhaps he supplied the witnesses.
Note N1198 Index
She was a war bride born in England. I have found her arrival in Canada now too. She came on the same ship Metagama. She is said to be "with husband" as are most of the women listed.
Note N1199 Index
The question is how she met Horace Scott since he was living in Warwick, Alberta. But then her family was living in Strathconna East by 1901.
Note N1200 Index
She appears as Violet in censuses.
Note N1201 Index
The witnesses were Charles Muiraro and Lizzie J Corneille. She was noted to be a school teacher.
Note N1202 Index
It was a marraige by Banns. The witnesses were John Gibson and Francis Bowers.
Note N1203 Index
The death registration says that he was killed by a train at a level crossing.
Note N1204 Index
She arrived on the same ship as George in 1848. She listed as a 22 year old single woman. Her trade was as a lace maker. In the 1841 census for Yardly Gibion, there were many women listed as lace makers.
Note N1206 Index
He is buried in section 17, lot 71, north east.
