Hey William,

Your information is correct:

Freda Churchman
m.1 Max Vilhelm/William Bernhardt 1935
4 kids: Michael, Shirley (m. Connor)Dawn (m. Rice) and Brian.

Freda (nee Churchman) Bernhardt
m. 2. Harry W Cottis 1949
1 child Alan F Cottis....and possibly 2 adopted Roxanne/Roseanne and Vivian.
The Freda Bernhardt that was born in 1911 was Max Bernhardt's sister, not his wife.
The only thing that confuses me is that I was told by a fellow researcher that Freda Churchmans father was Frederick Churchman b. about 1893. I found the marriage record that verfies Kathleen's message that he married a Queenie K Stannard. But here's where the problem comes in Freda Churchman was supposedly born in 1919....But the children's births listed for Q K (Stannard) Churchman don't appear to include Freda. There is a Joan K b. 1918 and an Eric N b. 1919.

There is an Osborne Churchman who married Gertrude Singleton. They possibly had 8 children one of whom was Edna M. Churchman in Kensington in 1919. Freda (Churchman) Bernharrdt had a daughter whose full name was:

Muriel Dawn Margaret Edna Alice Bernhardt. I know the first 3 names are correct and the 4th one....not sure of the Edna...

but if this is correct according to the birth records Osborne and Gertrude had a daughter Edna M. Churchman born in 1919 in Kensington and a daughter named Alice in 1923 in Freebridge. Wondered if her full name might be Freda Edna Margarette?????

Anyway I've always had more questions than answers researching this family. LOL
