Re: Waldon-Wigen Family in Canada, originally from Alesund, Norway

In Reply to: Waldon-Wigen Family in Canada, originally from Alesund, Norway by Mary Burns of 17702

The 1911 census shows the family, and if you look at the ages of the children, there is an obvious split in ages, which supports that he was married to someone else first, and then took the 2nd wife.
It shows that she (Catherine Gurry) was born Feb. 1876, and is age 44 in 1901.

this is Edward (Luke?) Gurry on the census of 1901, with his first wife, also a Catherine. Note her birthdate.
