Death of Helmer 1928 ( page 130) gives location Bloedel, but I am not seeing them on 1921 census?

ArgyllGran Report 13 Feb 2020 14:33

That record for Annie Gibson 1899 says she's going to her daughter Mrs West, South Westminster, BC.

I think it 's just a misreading of her age. On the image it's unclear whether it's 31 or 51.

She was Roman Catholic, and had $100 with her.
She paid her own passage, and was intending to remain permanently in Canada.

Nearest relative in UK: Mr Gibson, husband.
Address: 37 (?) Monks Pond Street, Northampton

She was 5ft 5ins, fair complexion, grey eyes, light grey hair.

Thank you all for your help,it is clear her intention was a one way trip - one must presume she passed away there.
