I appreciate your lead and date & location of the marriage of one James Alfred Rayson.I will check it out with the census, GPO, etc.For your Rayson data file, I am happy to share this information re JAMES WILLIAM RAYSON, his son:-
Born: Sept. 26, 1884, Kensington (info from cemetery record) Parents:father - James Alfred Rayson; mother unknown Died: July 22, 1961, Montreal, Canada Buried:Mount Royal Cemetery, Montreal Married: Lillian Adelaide Sullivan, Nov. 12, 1943, in Montreal (daughter of Robert Henry Sullivan & Livynia McConnell).Lillian and James had no children.
Believe this was James' 2nd marriage as he was listed as 'widower' when they married.He may have had a daughter, May, born in his 1st marriage.Also, he may have been adoptedby James Alfred Rayson.I have not yet determined what year James William Rayson emigrated to Canada.
Please advise if you learn of another Rayson surname researcher interested in this family line. Thanks, Alice
