Re: Peanut shock on Toronto TRAM? Family name STEWART
Thanks for the suggestion I will try that - Elizabeth Hills married William Allen Stewart in 1890 in Stepney in London.They had 5 children and in 1901 William was in the grocery/wine trade. The children were - Gordon,William, George, Gertrude and Ethel. We only know that the child was blonde female and it happend on St Clair St on a tram in Toronto. Cousins of mine had the newspaper article but it has since dissapeared from the family - it was thought to of been in the 1930's but all of Elizabeths children would of been in their 30's by then so it may of even of been a grandchild. But we do know that the newspaper refers to it being one of the first record of a child dying from peanut shock.
Its one of those things in a family that everyone talks about and wants to know the facts.
