When James Alfred Webb was born on June 6, 1910, at 85 Wellington Street North in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, his father, James Edward Webb (1887-1972) was 22 and his mother, Sarah Kathleen (née Payne) (1888-1947), was 21. The home no longer exists, and has been replaced by several large apartment buildings. (Note – the 1911 Census record suggests that the family lived at 86 Wellington Street, which also no longer stands.)
James had one brother and one sister.
James married Mary Ellen Warron on June 7, 1930. James’ occupation is listed on the marriage registration as “Apprentice Carpenter.”
When Mary Ellen Worron was born on October 15, 1909, in Hamilton, her father, William Worron Jr. (1882-1953), was 28, and her mother, Isabel (nee Hill) (1883-1980), was 23.
James and Mary Ellen had at least four children, but given at least one of those children is still living, I will leave this part of the record incomplete.
At some point likely in the forties, James and Mary Ellen divorced and Mary Ellen remarried to Edward Visheau on October 8, 1947. Edward had several children from two prior marriages. The couple had two more children.
James Webb died on December 26, 1975.
Mary Ellen Warron died on June 23, 1977. She is buried with her second husband in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
