Looking for information on Nellie Topper's ancestors. Nellie & John TOPPER were born to John TOPPER and Mary WALSH in Pickering, Ontario,Canada. Nellie's mother, Mary WALSH, died in childbirth after the birth of their son,John. Wondering if anyone has any additional information about John TOPPER, Mary's husband, who came to Canada from England. He left the children in the care of their grandparents, Bernard Ann WALSH and traveled by Grand Trunk Railway train, most likely, to California, where I found him in the 1900 Census records, as a farm hand - but no other trace of him again. Wondering if he died before the 1920 Census as I found no trace of him in later Census records.Nellie's brother, John, married ARROWSMITH and settled in Pickering where they are buried.
