The informant was a nephew Harold Piton residing in Victoria. There is a death of a Harold Henry Piton died Victoria 1987 aged 74y and a Harold Henry d 1948 aged 65y which could be his father.

Thank you so much for the information. I am going to check through the family and see who else emigrated to Canada.
They were quite a few in the family.
I do appreciate your help

Hi Pam,

I checked out the two Harold Piton death certificates. Harold born Quebec 1 May 1883 died 1948 was married to Nellie Craycroft born Salt Lake City. Their son Harold was born Lethbridge 26 Jun 1912 d 1987 was married to Dorothy Violet Townsend. So no idea how he got to be the nephew of Frederick Prowse.

Hi Judy

Thank you for your kindness in looking up the death certificates. How he is a nephew is a mystery. Perhaps we will never find out the connection. I know most of Fredericks family stayed in Devon England.

Thank you again.

Regards Pam

Hello, just happened to come across your post while searching for information on my father, Harold Henry Piton. The Piton men you are referring to are my dad, grandpa and great-grandfather.

Thank you for the information.The family lost touch with Frederick when his elder brother Peter Emanuel died. We cannot find a Harold Piton in our family, but he is reported as a nephew on the death certificate. Can you help with this please? Many thanks.
