111 From the Grimwood tree at http://www.geocities.com/maggiedriver/tree27/d1.htm

It seems likely that Charles went to Canada prior to 1884 since Maria, his first wife, had a child in December of that year by an Edward Bluck with whom she lived until 1914 when she finally married him. Charles married Mary Fay Dore, nee Fay in Montreal where he remained until his death in 1914.

He was a barman in 1874 at the time of his first marriage (Marriage certificate); in 1891, he was a house painter and in 1901, an electrician.

In the 1891 census, Charles and Mary were living in St. Louis Ward, Montreal with Mary's sons Edward, Leon, Victor and Gustave and his son Thomas and his mother-in-law Catherine Fay (spelled Fahey).

In the 1901 census, Charles and Mary Fay Dore were living in Montreal's St. Antoine Ward with step sons Leon, Victor and Gustave Doray and his mother-in-law Kate Fay.

In the 1911 census, he was living with Mary in St. Antoine and was working as an electrician. They also operated a rooming house and had six lodgers.

114 George Turner was born in Hintonburg, a railroaders' village, then a suburb of Ottawa. He received his elementary and high school education in Ottawa. In 1900, he continued the Turner railroading tradition started by his father, as a call boy with Canada Atlantic Railway. By 1903 he was a fireman and in 1910 he was promoted to engineer, a position he would hold for 38 years.
In 1906 he married Bernadette Joanis of Rockland, Ontario. They were married 66 years and had 15 children, one of whom died in infancy.
They settled first in Ottawa, then in Hurdman's Bridge, a hamlet on the Rideau River.
They were a well-known family, with the popular "Turner Girls" and the accomplished boys. Cycling was a family pastime - son George was an Olympian. And cottaging at Bark Lake and Trout Lake at Barry's Bay was a summer-long annual event for many years.
George loved his wife, his children and his cars. He needed a large car to ferry his brood, and over the years owned many including a Pierce Arrow, a Nash Ambassador, and, in retirement, his '56 Ford with the T-Bird engine.
George died in 1977 at age 93.

In 1881 the family was living in Fraserville, Quebec where George at age 17 was a barber. Likewise in 1891, when his mother was once again a widow and George was likely supporting his family.
It was in Fraserville that George probably met Sarah Turner.

117 George was the second child of Holden and Jennet Turner. Born in the early days of New Brunswick in rural Fredericton, he became a stage driver and proprietor of a transportation and cartage concern with stables, horses and employees. For more than 30 years, George provided a cab service for members of the House of Assembly of New Brunswick in Fredericton. He may have been the first of many New Brunswick Turners to be involved in horse-drawn transportation.
He and wife Catherine Russell had nine children, including two who followed him into stagecoach transportation and two others who were involved in sea-going transportation. George and Catherine also adopted and educated two young "Blue Coat Boys" from England.
In 1833 he built a house at the corner of Regent and George Streets in Fredericton. It is still standing, has been completely renovated, and is now classified as one of 24 buildings forming Fredericton's architectural heritage.
Catherine died in 1841 and George remarried the following year to Mary Harned McBeath, a widow.

On November 30th the boys strayed from home, fell through the ice and drowned. Albert's body was recovered that afternoon. It was front page news for a week while the search continued for young Haroldís body. In the meantime Albert's funeral was held. Extensive recovery efforts continued. The water level in the Canal was lowered and the ice broken up, but the body was not located. As time slipped by, rumours were that Harold had not drowned but had been kidnapped. These were put to rest in the following April, when the body was discovered about two blocks from the site of the drowning. Harold's funeral was held on April 11, 2013. Both are buried in Notre Dame Cemetery.
