    Caroline Mary Fincham pic here has disappeared

    Born 1881 Tuffnell Park, London
    Parents John Hardy Fincham and Jane Elizabeth
    1891 with parents and siblings in Islington RG12; Piece: 161; Folio: 177; Page: 29
    1901 as Mary, with widowed mum in Islington RG13; Piece: 162; Folio: 152; Page: 30
    1907-8 At 48 Marlebourough Hill, Marylebone, with sister Annie

    Annie married in 1808. She's not with any siblings or mum in the UK in 1911, and I have no idea what happened to her

    Her brother Francis (Frank) b 1880 went to USA, brother John b 1878 went to Manitoba, Canada, so that's a possibility.

    Any ideas would be welcome

    Ancestry, U.S., Border Crossings from Canada to U.S., 1895--1960, has Mary Fincham born 1884. She arrived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1910. On the manifest she gives her last address as that of her brother John Fincham. Can't make out where she is going to in the U.S.

    Also U.S. Find A Grave, has Mary C Fincham, born 1881, died 11 Spt 1927. Lakewood Cemetery, Minneapolis, Hennipen County, Minnisota. Plot, Section P21, Row 103, Grave 73.

    From Family Search.
    Vermont St Albans Canada Border Crossings.
    Has her final destination as Mplo(e) Minn. The Lawrence Sanitorium 70-17 Street?
    Seaport and date of Landing 5/10/10 Laurentania ?
    Rather hard to read though. Hope that helps

    I think that is Minneapolis, Minnesota. Seems to be where the Lawrence Santorium was/is situated.

    Thank you, that sounds like her, going between her brothers in the border crossing. The sanatorium doesn't sound good though. Poor lady!

    Maybe she had a job there. If she was sick I’m sure she would have been admitted close to her brother.

    Dr Lawrence was a specialist in addictions :(. Her twin was an alcoholic in an institution in the UK, so I suspect the same

    Looking at Lakewood cemetery it has her as Mary C AKA (M Davis) Fincham.

    Familysearch says Bertrum E Davis was her other half, I'm not sure they married though

    Have tried finding Mary (Caroline) Fincham (Davis) in the U.S. 1920 census but no luck :(
    Maybe someone else maybe able to find her....:D

    Did find the U.S. Alien Pre-Examined in Canada document.

    Yes, thank you that's lovely as it has a description
    What was the colour of her hair and eyes, at the bottom of this clip? Looks like poro!

    This is troubling me. It seems her brother Francis ended up in Vermont. So no one else in the USA. She paid her own way there and was a clerk and draper by profession not a nurse. The sanatorium was a private one. Would she be wealthy enough for all that? She must have met Bertram there as he was from Minneapolis. I'm swinging between patient and worker

    There is another copy (I think) where it looks like Brown and Grey

    Oh, I may be looking at the wrong one as this one says her age is 29 :(

    Found another Border Crossing card and it states her eyes and hair were Brown.
    It also gives her occupation of Clerk & ? which is difficult to make out part of it :confused: Says she has $50.00, which would have been quite a sum of money.

    Do you have much info on the two brothers once they emigrated?
