Re: Help Please Obituary of William Houran

Hello, I am not related. I don't have access to William's obit, but did find the following information. William seems to have married Matilda Maloy/Melville. I think Melville is the correct name. William and Matilda had 5 9known) children: Elizabeth, Mary, Hannah, Daniel, & Matilda. Mary married John Widden in 1898 in Chippewa Falls, and Mary married Thomas Minogue in 1894 in Chippewa Falls. Matilda (wife of William) most likely died between 1882 (birth of daughter Matilda), and the 1900 census (William a widow). I think I found William's 2nd marriage to Mary Crowley in 1904 Chippewa Falls. If so, then William's parents were Daniel Houran & Elizabeth Ehebart.

I found William, Matilda & their 2 daughters Elizabeth & Mary in the 1871 Ontario census in (Town?) Smith, Peterborough West. There was an Elizabeth Melville living with them. I would think that she was Matilda's mother. I couldn't find them in the 1881 Ontario census, nor in the 1880 US census. They most likely immigrated during this time, possibly missing both census.
Hope this helps somewhat. Ruth Pokorny
