Would that be Wishaw, England or Wishaw, Ireland?

I can find no Mabel Paisley who died in Montreal around 1930.

That would be Wishaw, England (near Glasgow, Scotland). I'm sorry, I didn't know there was another Wishaw in Ireland.
I mean late in the *decade* of the 1930s. Her exact date of death is presently unknown; I have yet to make inquiries of the City of Montreal, but I have been told by my mother that Mabel's grave is in a pauper's cemetery in the city's east end.

She was alive well into the 1930s. Her father was John Paisley, her mother Jeanie Paterson. Mabel married William Dudgeon in Wishaw in 1923. She came to Canada sometime in the late 1920s looking for work, but then took up with my maternal grandfather, Thomas Durnin! William Dudgeon divorced her in 1936, so she was still alive then.

My Mother Ann Frajkor (nee Durnin), remembers her mother dying of cancer sometime in the late 1930s.

Thank you for the additional information. That makes it easier to find records. I think this is one record:

      So what is your best guess as to which last name she was buried under?


      Is this her immigration?

        Wow! Thank you very much, Betty. My mother is especially thrilled and thankful to learn of this. With the exception of her uncle David, she never knew she had 4 aunts. Thank you.
        Immigration record above shows Wishaw as origin.

        Shows husband is William Dudgeon.

        Shows that she is to arrive at her sister's house.

        Mrs. M. Stirling

        Sawdy Post Office

        Athabastis Landing


        Says "Husband follows"

        And under "Physically Defective" yes is written. There is also some more written there but I am unable to read it.

        Also shows "Landed Immigrant" on the far right. It is stamped.

        This might be a good record to purchase. Lots of info there.

        I love it when I'm able to find info. Hug your Mom for me.

        *I'm a hugger. Gimme lotsa space*

        I should have a t-shirt printed up to warn people.
