Trying to trace the movements of Roderick Nicholson Morrison who arrived at Quebec on the ill-fated Empress of Ireland on July 23, 1909. Sailed from Liverpool on July 16. Aged 19 and born in South Africa, I believe him to be my wife's great uncle who was born to Roderick Nicholson Morrison (same name, b Stornoway Isle of Lewis) and Ellen Kendall nee Holman (b Camborne, Cornwall) in Uitenhage, South Africa on 7 September, 1889. Cannot trace him in Canadian census records. An old note from my father in law stated that "Rory" Morrison (his uncle) had died in a shipyard accident in Glasgow, Scotland, circa 1910 but can find no death record or newspaper report of any such accident from 1909-1911.
