My great-aunt ELLEN DONOVAN married WILLIAM RICHARD FLYNN in West Ham in 1907. They had 2 children but one died. ELLEN also died aged 22. WILLIAM and his son then emigrated to TORONTO where they lived with JOHN FLYNN (William's father)..............................................................................William joined the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force in 1915 and is not listed among the Canadian 1st World War dead....................................................................I'm trying to find out what happened to William and his son and if there are any living descendents? There are lots of Flynns in the Toronto Telephone directory! Any help appreciated - Pat
