I am trying to trace two sisters who travelled to Montreal in 1908.
Christina has proved the most elusive, and for Annie, it is her marriage and details of her daughter Jean that I am looking for.
Christina Spence Killen,
Born 09 May 1881 in Campbeltown, Argyll, Scotland.
Travelled with her sister Annabella Orr (Annie) and arriving in Quebec in 1908.
1911 Census sees her working in the same household as her sister (Annie) as a Cook in Montreal
After this I can’t find any record of her.. marrying, dying or travelling out of Quebec/Canada
