Hi Joscelyn: Boy that was a fast answer. Glad to hear back from you so soon. Since I am not sure what you have so far, I will try and fill in the blanks. John McDougal died 28 June, 1879 - 14 Kidbrook-villas, Blackheath, London, Middx. Catherine - 24th May 1899, but not sure where.
Walter Kennedy McDougal b. 4th qtr 1858, Bath Somerset, married Rose Penfold b. 2nd qtr 1872 Bexley, Dartford, Kent. 3rd qtr 1901 - Lambeth, Middlesex, England. (I got this from FreeBMD). They immigrated to Canada in 1902, arriving in Quebec.

They had one child - Gwendolyne Helen McDougal, born 1916, Regina, Saskatchewan. They both died when she was very young and she was adopted by neighbours (Murray). Don't know anything else about them yet? But will keep on looking. Walter died from the Spanish flu in 1919, Regina, Saskatchewan and Rose died in 1927. No death date listed - just the words "Probate", so I will have to check further into this as well.
They are both buried in the Regina Cemetery, Broad St & 4th Ave, Regina. Walter - Lot 157-28-S and Rose, lot 55-10-N.
Gwendolyn died in Vancouver, British Columbia - 11 Sept, 2001. They stated her names as Gwendolyne Helen McDougal (Murray), so would gather that she never married.

I have heard (via a Peter Williams) that her grandaughter lives on Gabriola Island, B.C. which is weird because I lived on that island for over 30 years. But that was long before I knew about the McDougal family.

Rose's fathers name was Ambrose Penfold, born 28 Oct, 1833 Ifield, Sussex. Married to Anne Clement b. 1850 Bexley, Kent. The Clement family is my side of the family. I was born in Kensington, London, England and my maiden name was Blackman. We immigrated to Canada in 1952. I can give you lots of info on the Penfold's and Clement's if you would like it.

Sorry, don't know much more about Walter's siblings, other than their christening dates etc. But haven't given up searching for them yet. I wonder if any of them followed Walter to Canada?

Hope this info helps. I will check with some friends on Gabriola who run the newspaper, and get them to put an ad in it for me. Let you know how I make out. Valerie
