Jemima Ward and Colin McLean are my Great Great Grandparents, their daughter Emma McLean (my Great Grandmother) married Charles William Graham. All records that I can find is that they had five children: Hugh, Charles Jr, Hattie, Mary and Ruby. My Grandmother is their daughter Mary Georgina Graham. Charles Jr died at a very young age. My Grandmother was born 23 Jun 1902 and died 21 Dec 1885 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
My grandmother told her children (12 of them), that her parents put her and her three living siblings (Hugh, Hattie and Ruby) in an orphanage in Winnipeg just after my Great Aunt Ruby was born in 1903. Only my Aunt Ruby was adopted as a baby, the other three were never adopted. It was Hugh who kept in contact with his sisters and that is how my family has stayed connected. thank goodness for him. However no one seems to know what happened to Emily and Charles? We were told them immigrated to the USA and joined Vaudeville but I cannot find any record of this or any records of their death or where they lived after 1903. Would you happened to have any information that you could shared? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks . My Grandmother married John Lendrum Doak and they had 12 kids, my mom Shirley was the 10 th child, there were 8 boys and 4 girls.
