My great aunt, Margaret Perry, married someone named Gavin (Guy) Hamilton in this apx. time frame. they lived in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. Margret grew up in Beith but the family emigrated to Boston MA when she was a teenager. Family lore says that Gavin followed her here and they married. Margaret died young and he remarried, ending up I think in British Columbia. Guy was a musician.

I believe my Grandfather IS the same Gavin (Guy) Hamilton.  He was married before my Grandmother and had two children, a Daughter Margeurite and a Son Robert. Grandpa and my Grandmother, Lillian, had ten children, my Father was the eldest. Sadly, he passed away in 2009. Grandpa DID live in Moose Jaw where I believe he met my Grandmother. They came to British Columbia when my Father was young. Grandpa was a musician, playing in and organizing bands whereever he was. One of my fondest memories is of Grandpa playing the trumpet......in the barn!  I would very much like to correspond with you more to exchange information.

Hi Folks,  As you are both Anonymous it will be difficult to take this forward.    Can I invite you both to join Wikitree,  initially as guests then you will be able to make contact properly.   Happy to act as go-between to link you both if needs be.  Send me a PM (private message ) from my profile Maxwell-1489.   Good luck - I see the first question was asked  August 2012 !!
