Classification: Query
Surnames: Owen Martin
Looking for any information on Frank Herbert Owen who was born 1868 in Port Colborne, married Cora Martin, and died on Sept 16, 1920 in Welland. Cora Martin was from Binghamton, NY and they had a daughter named Helen Owen (B. 1893-4 NY, D. Aug 25, 1926 Welland). The family can be found living near Southbend, Indiana in 1900 and by 1911 Frank had returned to Welland where apparently they remained. Frank's death record says his father was "Owen" and mother "Helen". I am especially interested in their burial locations and in any information on what happened to Cora Martin Owen after Frank and Helen's deaths. Thank you!

Thank you very much! I think the first, 1871, is the Frank I am looking for and the 1881 is not. Do you know about Canadian censuses? Why is the 1911 census the last one Ancestry has? Is the 1921 available elsewhere?

Canada has VERY strict laws on privacy - similar to England where the 1911 census is also the last one - in England it is 100 years before they are released & I believe Canada is the same - likewise Canada's BMD's - In Ontario, births are only released to 1913, marriages 1928 and deaths 1947 - the other counties i.e. Sask etc have different ones

Thanks, that is what I figured because I noticed the 1911/2012 relationship. I have always wondered about the US releasing the US Censuses so fast. I really appreciate your help! Good luck with your searches.
