With some help, I finally found her and Robert in the 1925 Iowa State census After that, it was relatively easy to find her and Robert in various censuses. In 1900, she was living in Minnesota with Robert and three sons (I cannot read the first son's name) and it says that they went to the US in. I wonder why?

Dad says that she was a school teacher in Winnipeg which is where they met when R. J. was working on a dam. I believe that I have a picture of them standing in front of a house numbered "781." Dad says that they lived together in Vancouver later on and that she had a son from a prior marriage. The fact that she was a school teacher is confirmed by a photo of them in front of a building that John has labelled "Martha's School Cottage", taken in October 1929. There is another photo of them taken in Septembere 1930 on which John has written "Romancing Days, Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba".
There is a picture of them taken at Bowen Island, B.C. in September 1936. So I have to wonder what happened between 1936 and 1938?
