a nurse. They had 5 children:
3. Albert Owen Geeís third wife was Arella AMBROSE. They had two sons. I donít know their names.

I have a large number of Henderson ancestors in the Quebec and Montreal areas.
I know my gggf, William Simpson HENDERSON was buried in Montreal in 1857 from the Mountain Street Wesleyan Methodist Church. I suspect other family members may be buried there also.
William's brother, John HENDERSON was in business in Montreal for many years as Henderson, Brother & Co., hats and furs; in the 1850s the name was changed to John Henderson & Co., Hatters and Furriers.
In the late 1860s there was a firm Marcou & Henderson, furriers, in which James Henderson was a partner. I believe this James HENDERSON to be related. He lived for a time.
John HENDERSON was also in partnership with his brother, William Simpson HENDERSON in Quebec originally under the name of W. S. Henderson, London Hat Warehouse. Over the years the name of this firm was changed as cousins were taken in and the original partners retired. Today this firm is Holt Renfrew and has branches all over Canada.
Other names associated with
the family in Montreal were GIBSONE and BOTTRELL.
Maj. John Burford GIBSONE was the brother of the Hon. George Farrar GIBSONE and Lt. Gen. William Primrose GIBSONE, all of Montreal. The GIBSONE male line died out in 1945 when Lt. George Derek GIBSONE, GGHG, was killed in action near Melfi, Italy.
Edmund BOTTRELL, a Wesleyan minister at Lennoxville married the widow of Thomas RENFREW, in 1838. Her maiden name was Mary Ann Jane HENDERSON, daughter of George HENDERSON, Esq. of Quebec City.
I am trying to find the immigrant ancestor, who I suspect was James HENDERSON, Sr., who died in Batiscan, Quebec, in 1851, aged 70 years. His wife's name was Elizabeth. Burial was in Mount Hermon Cemetery "near Quebec".
My Quebec Henderson ancestors seem to have been a veritable Clan and moved back and forth between Quebec City and Montreal. There must be some living descendants in Montreal, but I have been unable to make contact with any and there are no family trees on the internet that can be identified with any of the above people.

HUMPHREYS / HUMPHRIES

related surnames: CHERRY, BLISS
The ancestors I am researching are Joseph Archibald HUMPHREYS (possibly spelled HUMPHRIES) and his wife, Sarah Maria CHERRY. She was a native of England; he of either Ireland or Wales.
far as I can determine Joseph HUMPHREYS
and Sarah CHERRY emigrated to Canada from Ireland about 1850 and
settled in Montreal. I come to this conclusion because my maternal
grandmother, * Sophia
Alice HUMPHREYS, was born in Dublin
Humphreys and Sarah Cherry had two other children born in Montreal :
the parents arrived in Canada from Ireland they brought with them at least
three other children, my grandmother, Sophia, and two older sisters :
By 1871 when the Census was taken in Ottawa all these children were living there together, except for my grandmother Sophia Alice HUMPHREYS, who had married civil engineer George Pidgeon BLISS and with him was migrating westward, eventually to settle in Manitoba. I don't know when or where she married George Pidgeon BLISS, but it is certainly likely the wedding took place in Montreal, where her parents lived. As for the date, it could not have been after 1871, because in the 1891 Census in Winnipeg a 20-year-old son named Charles BLISS was living with them there. Though I have no evidence of it, there may have been children older than he, which would push the marriage farther back. At any rate, it would certainly have been a Church of England ceremony, for George BLISS was the son of a Church of England priest from New Brunswick, the Rev. Charles Parke BLISS.
I don't know when Joseph HUMPHREYS and Sarah CHERRY arrived from Ireland. I don't know what his occupation was, or where they lived in Montreal. I don't know when either of them died or where they are buried, though it's likely to have been Montreal.

Alexander IMRIE came to Canada as a young man with several friends. For several years, they worked throughout Canada and the Eastern United States doing construction work and other labor. This would have been during the 1880's. One of the friends died so Alexander volunteered to take the body back to Scotland, saying that he would return to Canada. Well, he finally did after 20 years and 12 children.
He and his wife, Amelia Lamb MCQUEEN brought all of their children to Montreal in 1911, I believe on board the Hisperian. Amelia died in 1933 and Alexander eventually moved to California to live with his daughter, Margaret WILSON. He died in 1949.
His children scattered across
Canada and the US; at least one branch stayed in Montreal.
I would appreciate any information the IMRIE's; ancestry, descendancy and especially any information on Alexander's history. His mother was named Elizabeth IMRIE but I have not been able to determine an age for her. Alexander was born in Dundee in 1863 and no father appears on the birth certificate.
