Our information seems to match. I seek more information about Dorothy's mother Gladys. I have a Worcester, Massachusetts family; the parents were Herbert Alexander Coates born Nova Scotia 1877 Canada and Jessie Farquharson born 1881 Nova Scotia Canada. Herbert had also been married to Clare, no information about Clare. Jessie also married Dayton Stokes. Their children were all born Worcester, Massachusetts: Gladys Ella Coates born 1900 died 1945. Dorothy Coates born 1902 died 1977. George A. Coates born 1906 died 1941. Florence Coates born born about 1908 died about 1910. I have that Gladys born 1900 was married to Carolous Edward Thorne and to his brother George Hathaway Thorne and probably one or two others.
