James’ sisters

Note

Another draft post written before I found out who Bill Doe really was.

This shows you not to make hypothesis.


CAMPBELL – James Campbell, 39, returned soldier, of 844 Bannatyne avenue, died Sunday in General hospital after a short illness.  The funeral will be held at 1.30 p.m. Wednesday from Mordue Bros.’ funeral home to Elmwood cemetery. Besides his mother, with whom he lived, Mr. Campbell is survived by a brother, Alex, and a sister, Kathleen, also at home.  Four other sisters also survive:  Mrs. D.R. Gilchrist, Camp Borden, Ont.; Mrs. James Moorcroft, Vancouver, B.C., and Mrs. R. Toole and Mrs. J. Jones, both of Winnipeg.

Four other sisters also survive:

Mrs. D.R. Gilchrist, Camp Borden, Ont.;

Mrs. James Moorcroft, Vancouver, B.C.,

and Mrs. R. Toole and Mrs. J. Jones, both of Winnipeg.

Who were James’ sisters?

According to the ship’s manifest…

Tina 23 (Christina?)

Charlotte 13

Margaret 12

Jessie 6

Kathleen 1

Now according to the 1921 census

Tina is not listed so she was probably married to D.R. Gilchrist. Usually siblings  are listed by age in obituaries.

Charlotte who is next in James’ obituary could have been married  to James Moorcroft.

Just plausible…
