Henry W. FARRIS, b.1857 Eng., d.1911 Manitoba, looking for descendants

Henry William FARRIS was born July 20, 1857 in Surrey, England to brickmaker Henry FARRIS and Ann THOMPSON. He was the first of nine children.

They emigrated to Canada in the summer of 1870. On Nov. 23, 1885, Henry FARRIS married Florence EARLE in Brandon, Manitoba. They had two sons who died in infancy, and a daughter Sarah Selena Frances FARRIS born Feb. 25, 1894 in Brandon, Manitoba.

Henry W. FARRIS died Jan. 5, 1911 and was buried in Brandon Municipal Cemetery, next to his two infant sons. I cannot find what happened to his wife or daughter Sarah (who was sometimes called Lena).

I'm looking for any descendants to share information with.

Merrilyn Evans (nee FARRIS)
