STATHAM, EDMONTON, 1914 I am searching for information about my great grandmother, Rosa Augusta Statham (maiden name Chiddy) who was born in England in April 1851. She married in Toronto in Apr 1872 and then moved back to England. I haven’t been able to find a record of her death. There is a slim possibility, based on a comment made by my mother many years ago, that she died in BC or Alberta while visiting family (three of her children, plus a couple of Chiddy nephews, had emigrated). I found an entry in the Beechmount Cemetery records for a Rosa Statham who died on Dec 12, 1914. I called the helpful folks at the Municipal Cemeteries office, but the only additional information they had was the name of the funeral director. I called the funeral director, but their records only go back to 1940. Staff at the library looked for an obituary for me but couldn’t find one. There don’t seem to be any Stathams at all in the 1901 Census, and no other records of Stathams being buried in Edmonton cemeteries. Has anyone come across any Stathams? Or Chiddys? Both names are uncommon, so I suspect that the Rosa who died in 1914 is a relative of some sort, even if she isn’t my great grandmother. , New Westminster, BC Canada
