I am looking for information on my great-grandfather, and family, George William Neale. He married Thelma May Gilson, daughter of Matthew Gilson and Elsie May James. They had four daughters, Georgina, Arlene, Valerie, and Susanne.
Georgina married first Rick Smillie, then Terry Kenzie, Arlene married Kenneth Carlson, and Valerie married Brian Allan Williams. Arlene and Kenneth had one known child, a son named Danny William born July 1969. Georgina ("Georgie") and Rick had two known children, both sons, named Norman Matthew Smillie ("Norm") born December? 1969 and Colin James Smillie born January 1st 1972, died March 6th 2008. I have no marriage details for Susanne Neale, nor any child records for Brian and Valerie (Neale) Williams.
Danny Carlson, Norm and Colin Smillie, as well as their mothers (as far as I know) were all born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada. As well as George William Neale or his wife Thelma (Gilson) Neale; for it stated in a copy of the Ladysmith-Chemainus Chronicle in an article about the New Years baby Colin James Smillie being a third-generation Ladysmithian on his mother's side.
George and Thelma are both buried in the Ladysmith Cemetery, Thelma is presumed to have died in 2008/09, and George is presumed to have died in between 2002 and 2008.
I never knew them. If anyone has any information, or better yet, is related, please post a reply or contact me at:
Thanks, -Ryan Williams great-grandson of George William and Thelma May (Gilson) Neale
