James Mowat - Winnipeg Canada - Can anyone help with any information My name is Karen Prentis, I currently live in Perth, Western Australia, but originally from Kent UK. I am trying to get some information on my Great Grandfather James Mowat. The information that I do have is very vague I'm afraid. James was originally from the Glasgow area of Scotland, he is my Grandmother's (Wilhelmina - born 1906 in Girvan) father. She is listed as being illegitimate on her birth certificate, but he had acknowledged her as his true daughter. James emigrated to Canada I think prior to the first world war. He resided in Winnipeg Canada. I have a letter (written by him to my Grandmother) dated June 1934, he is living at 365 Beverley Street, Winnipeg at this stage with his wife and three daughters (all of which were aware of my Gran). His daughters are Margaret (born 1919), Nellie (born 1927) and Marjorie (born 1932), I am unaware of his wife's name. James did visit my Gran in Kent during the second world war (my dad was about 3 at the time so maybe 1940/41), he was in uniform, Canadian Scottish forces I think......but unsure, he must have been in his forties, so a bit confused....... I have nothing else on him. Can anyone help please .......... I would love to know anything about James and of course if there are any living relatives still in Canada. Thank you to anyone that can help xx
I have recently been sent a website obituary with regards to one of James daughters Margaret who sadly passed away last year. She has two children Helen Croy and Jules Cusson, any info on them too would be wonderful too xx
