Re: Cpt. George Allen MacDonald - London, Middlesex, Ont

In Reply to: Cpt. George Allen MacDonald - London, Middlesex, Ont by Bob MacDonald of 100350

In the 1949 Voters' List, Muriel is listed at the same address. In the 1945 list, there is an Allan MacDonald, a baker, listed at 470 Adelaide Street, London. No one else is listed as a registered voter in the household.

The death record for the baby shows the address of the father, Allan, at 313 Hyman Street, London. Says the father was born in North Oxford and the mother, Muriel Douglas, was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, so wonder if Allan went to the US at some point and remarried.

I did find this marriage in New York:

This is him because when you look at the original image, it says he was born in Thamesford, Ontario, and living in London, Ontario. His second marriage. Says he is divorced as of December 16, 1909 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio (Cleveland). Working as a civil servant. Marriage actually took place in Niagara Falls, New York. Muriel was born in St. Paul's, Minnesota, but was living in London, Ontario at the time of the marriage. First marriage for her.

George and Iva were married on 26 April 1905 in London:


Name: George Allan Macdonald
Birth Place: Thamesford, Ontario
Age: 21
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1884
Father Name: Allan Macdonald
Mother Name: Annie Cameron
Spouse Name: Iva Laviniaor Warren
Spouse's Age: 21
Spouse Birth Year: abt 1884
Spouse Birth Place: Mt. Vernon Ohio
Spouse Father Name: Chas W Warren
Spouse Mother Name: Willella Willoughby Warren
Marriage Date: 26 Apr 1905
Marriage County or District: Middlesex

Iva was living in Cleveland at the time of the marriage, so they must have moved there after the marriage and were divorced there.
