Wallace Davis and Mamie Woolfson in Montreal

I am searching for information on the families of Wallace DAVIS and Mamie WOOLFSON. Wallace and Mamie were married in Montreal in 1913, they and their families had moved to Canada from England sometime prior to that date. I would appreciate any information that would help in filling in the family history. Below is what I know about them.

Wallace Davis was also known as Walter Davis. He was born in England in 1887 to Henry Davis also known as Zvi Henry Herzog, his mother's name is as yet unknown. I believe he had siblings but do not have any information regarding them. Sometime before 1913 he and his family apparently moved to Montreal. In about 1948 he and Mamie moved to Miami, FL.

Mamie Woolfson was the daughter of Meyer/Meir Woolfson and Rachel Goodman. She was born in New York City in 1887 but the family then returned to England. She had four sisters that I know of, Bessie and Bertha who never married and Ruth and Sarah who may have married a Lazarus Wolfe in Montreal in 1923. Again, sometime before 1913 she and her family moved to Montreal. Mamie moved to Miami with her husband in 1948. Her sisters Bessie and Bertha remained in Canada and cared for their parents until their death at which time the too moved to Miami, FL and remained unmarried. Ruth and Sarah both married and stayed in Canada.

Wallace and Mamie had two children, a son and daughter, both born in Montreal in 1914 and 1919. They both also moved to Miami, FL.

If anyone recognizes any of these people, please contact me.

Thank You,

Pam Jastremski
