I have not been able to locate any information about Jeanette Gilmour (Married name Fletcher) from Canada. She is listed as Canada English, but no parents' names or siblings are named. I want to find out who her parents were so I can do further research and add her branch to my family tree. If anyone has any info would you please share?

Familysearch is a free site

"Michigan Marriages, 1822-1995", database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FCF1-15Y : 17 January 2020), Janett Gilmour in entry for Louis M. Fletcher, 1893.

It is better not to add a profile without at least one source. You can add a Research Notes header (just above the Sources header) and put in all info you find about a spouse, parent or child until you have a proper source with which to create a new profile.

If this source is not enough to help your search, please come back and add a comment so we can help some more

Hi Lisa!

OK, I think I figured it out.

I added some sources to Jeanette's profile a couple weeks ago but had another look at it tonight.

Her death record gave her parents' names as David Gilmore and Mary Hunter.

The 1910 Census indicates she immigrated in 1891, so she had to be captured in the 1871 Canadian Census.

The 1871 Census of Chinguacousy, Peel, Ontario, shows ''Jannet'' with David and Mary Gilmore.

Looking at birth records, there is a James Hunter Gilmore, born 5 Mar 1874 in Chinguacousy, Peel, Ontario, to David Gilmore and Mary Hunter. Also David, born 28 October 1871.

Finally, looking in the Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Register, there is a Jennet Keening Gilmor, born to David and Mary Gilmor, born in Toronto Township, born 20 Sept 1868, and her brother David, born in Chingacousy, born 20 Oct 1871, both baptized 24 December 1871, in Chingacousy.
