Looking for Parents of Theodore John Richards, Montreal, Canada

+4 votes
I have unsuccessfully been trying to trace my paternal linage. My grandfather was Theodore John Richards who hailed from Maontreal, Canada, as told to me by his daughter (my aunt). Theodore was born @ 1903 and was said to be 43 years old when he died. He married Florence Townsend (1899-1946) and they lived in Millbroook, NY.

Theodore's siblings were said to be: Ainta, Dolly, Joseph, Lena,  Leonard, Regina with one of the females beign Catholic nun.

I've not been able to find a death record for Theodore or his parents so I can continue to trace the Richards history back further.

If anyone has any information, I'd greatly appreciate the help.
Thanks, in advacne, for any assistance.

Thank you very much for your time and the info, however, my grandfather's name was Theodore John Richards, so I'm not sure of this info is applicable.

Thank you for your help.

My aunt, Theodore's daughter, is Doris (Richards) Woodard. Her siblings are Elizabeth (Betty) and Howard (deceased). If there is additional info I can provide, please let me know.

Find no record for your grandfather, birth records for that time frame are still not publicly accessible easily.  Where did he marry?  If you can find that, you can probably find his parents.
