..researching Mary Georgina Shaw(or Georgina Mary Shaw) born in Collingwood Ontario 16 Jan 1934 to Winnifred Chessell and John Andrew Shaw. Married William Donald 1951 in Toronto. 2nd marriage was to Edward Cooper. Mary Georgina died in Acton 05 Sep 1988, funeral in Acton 07 Sep 1988, buried in Collingwood. 4 children born in 1st marriage ( Debbie, Gail, Susan and William (Billy ) and 3 children born in 2nd marriage ( John, Karen, and Kim ). I believe that some of her children and/or descendants may still live in Acton, possible that Edward Cooper is still alive. A relative of John Shaw believes that Edward Cooper raised all 7 children and adopted the 4 children born to Mary G and William.
Mary Georgina's mother died when she was 2 months old and she was raised by her father's parents, Hugh and Susan Shaw, in Collingwood, Ontario. There was little or no connection between the Chessell/Shaw family since the late 1930's that this present generation knows of. Looking for information and answers. Mary Georgina is my husband's 1st cousin. Any information greatly appreciated.
