  1. Lisa Cruse says:

    my late father Francis Venables and his brother Joseph Venables and their parents were members of the salvation army in the Sutton area. My father died when I was six (in 1970) and uncle Jo in 1979 and I know nothing else about them or their family it would be good to know if this that I’ve have been told is true.

  3. I was born Nov. 11/51. I was adopted. I am searching for information of my grandparents. The little information that I have is my great-grandfather Alfred Gordon Smith with his wife (name unknown) came to Canada (I believe they went to Montreal) from England in 1919. They had a daughter with them, Ruth Gertrude Smith, who was about 2-4 yrs old. Ruth’s mother died not long after they arrived in Canada. It sounds like they came to Canada working with the Salvation Army. Alfred Gordon Smith remarried and letters indicate his new wife was with the S.A. They had a son named Gordon. Alfred Gordon Smith was referred in one letter as Adjutant. His wife was very involved with the youth and a group called Thornton Heath Corp. Cadets in Montreal. Any help or guidance as to where I can get more information, marriage, births, deaths and burials etc. would be very much appreciated. Yours truly, Sharon Murdock, Ajax, Ont. 905-686-9162

    • Hi Sharon,
      I don’t have any access to Salvation Army Archives so I am unable to help you. I suggest you contact your nearest Salvation Army Citadel and ask for their help.
