I'm second generation Canadian. All my grandparents ended up in Manitoba.
Richard Wilkinson left London, England in 1906 and came to Winnipeg. Grace Hood Cameron left Aberdeen, Scotland in 1911, first of all to go to Rivers, Manitoba, to join her sister Mary and brother-in-law Angus. Eventually she went to Winnipeg, met Richard, and they were married October 10, 1917. July 13, 1918 their daughter, Helen Cameron Wilkinson was born in Winnipeg. She was my Mom.
William Johnstone Mosson and Ada Rose Parsons were married in Bourton on the Water, Gloucestershire on November 10, 1903. They had 2 children born in Lower Slaughter, Gloucestershire, before they came to Canada in 1906, to join his parents at Deepdale. Eventually they all moved to Alexander, and my Father, Kenneth George Mosson was born there on April 5, 1910.
Helen and Kenneth, known to everyone as Nell and Kelly, married on August 9, 1942 in Brandon, while Dad was in training to go Overseas.
In 1948 I was born in Brandon.
Canadian to my soul!
