In Reply to: HOLDEN Richard Stewart, ONTARIO CANADA by Bernedette Wilson of 100310

Hi. I'm not related to this family. This might be the Holden family in 1911:

1911 Census of Canada about Richard Holden
Name:        Richard Holden
Gender:        Male
Marital Status:        Single
Age:        10
Birth Date:        May 1901
Birthplace:        Ontario
Relation to Head of House:        Son
Mother's name:        Jane Holden
Tribal:        Irish

Richard Holden        10 -son- b. May 1901 Ont **
Mary Holden        8 -dau- b. Jan 1903 Ont
William Holden        6 -son- b. Sep 1904 Ont

I don't think Richard was born in May 1900 because he isn't in the 1901 Census:

1901 Census of Canada about Robert E Holden

Robert E Holden        2 -gson- b. 30 Jul 1898 Ont **
Richard S Holden 28 -son in law- b. -- 1872 Ont; Farm Laborer **

It looks like his father died in 1906:

Cause of death: Hemmorhage, 3 days

Here is a marriage for Richard's parents:

This might be the Holden family in 1881:

M Martha Holden        14 -dau- b. 28 Apr 1886 Ont
H George Holden        11 -son- b. 23 Aug 1889 Ont
       
This might be a baptism for Richard from the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

Richard Holden, b. 13 Apr, bap 26 Apr 1873 St-Alphonse, Allumette Island (Chapeau), Pontiac County, Quebec, son of Edward Holden & Jane Broom [sic].

Hope this helps. Annie
