    Elizabeth Ada RAISON was born in 1882 to parents William Henry and Lucy (née FREE) in Clapham, London.

    She may be found in the censuses to 1911, this latest showing that she was living at 39 Wirtemberg Street, Clapham, London.

    Elizabeth next shows up getting married to a Frederick BROOKS on 9th May 1913 – in Ontario, Canada. But then both she and Frederick disappear.

    I have had a look at the 1921 Canadian census, but cannot see them.

    There is a death for an Elizabeth BROOK at Saint Hubert Cemetery, Whitewood, Saskatchewan, Canada shown on Find A Grave. However, the dates given are 1882 to 1946 but there is no further information.

    If anyone could discover what happened to Elizabeth and Frederick, I would be most grateful. :)

    Thank you,

    Found this one in 1931 - Hughes is a bad interpretation of the family below.

    1931 they are at 1075 Bathurst Street Upper, York Toronto, Ontario. She is 48 and Fred is 44.
    Oops Sorry Ma. Just signed on and your result popped up.

    Thank you. :) Have just looked at the original and it says 1375, rather than 1075. I have sent in a correction. ;)

    Don't know if you already have this, Jan, but Eliz RAISON, aged 30, appears on the Canada Incoming Passenger Lists, the reason for her immigration being shown as to marry F BROOKS. She left Avonmouth aboard the "Royal Edward" which arrived at Quebec on 7 May 1913. However, no luck so far in finding this couple in the 1921 Canadian census although they are both in the 1931 census as Wendy has already found.

    Frederick was apparently born in Wandsworth England according to part tree.

    According to the voter's lists he was still a plumber in 1958 and they were both still in Toronto.

    On Findmypast they have a joining sheet for Frederick for becoming a member of the Odd Fellows' Relief Association. The following link will take you to page one. Go to page 2 and at the bottom of the page in answer to question #15 it gives Elizabeth's name.

    Just need to find a death for her after 1958....

    I would guess she died in Ontario and we don't have a lot of records.. maybe you can find a newspaper one. I looked at the OCFA site and there were pages of Elizabeth Brooks so unless you can search each cemetery it may be hard to find her. I will keep looking! My guess is she is in Mt. Pleasant cemetery in Toronto.

    Still looking. I find it very frustrating that I pay ancestry to have "all access", but they want extra to see a lot of the ones I want to see . :mad:

    @Half Hour please don't overdo the searching. If you can find her, great. If not, she will show up at some point in the future, I am sure. :)

    For deaths on Ancestry you will be waiting awhile. Right now the cut off in Ontario for privacy reasons is 1952. We know she was alive in 1958!
