Jones and Getzel - Manitoba from ????
Posted by: Gail Lancaster (ID *****0023) Date: August 08, 2002 at 15:04:33
  of 1701

I have finally found a bit more information on my grandfathers two wives. It is not
much but I am hoping it will tie in with someone out there.

First - Emelia Getzel b 1868 in Russia of Polish parents. Her parents names were
Friedrich and Louisa Getzel. Emelia was married in Winnipeg in 1889 but I have
no idea when she came to Canada or if she came with family and/or siblings. There is a family story that she came from the Beausejour area but I can find no trace of the name there.

Second - Rosina Phoebe Jones b Aug 19 1870 in England to James Philip Jones
and Mary Frances Cutler. I have found a similar name in an orphanage in
London in 1881 but cannot verify it is the correct person. She came to Canada in
1888 but the first time I can pinpoint her whereabouts is when she married my
grandfather in 1897 in Winnipeg.

I am desperately searching for any information on either of these women prior to
their marriage. I have info to share. Please help if you have any ideas.
