My mother was born in Saskatchewan in 1931. North Battleford most probably. Her mother's name was Margerette MacCormack who was 18 at the time. The father listed on a border crossing is "McCoy." (name of father's family).
The story as I was told is that my grandmother was raped at 17 years of age, however. I am interested in finding out more about the secret life of my mother, Betty June McCormack (MacCormack) who was born on 06/01/1931 and raised at St. Patrick's orphanage.
Thank you very much. It has been very difficult because no one spoke of this in our small family. They have all passed on.
Is there anyone who may have any information?
Margerette was changed to Margaret who was born in 1913 on P.E.I. or at least lived there.
MacCormack became McCormack from what I can discern.
I am Betty June MacCormack's daughter.
Betty June MacCormack may have actually been Elizabeth June MacCormack but I am not certain.
