    1. [CANADA-IMMIGRANTS] Robert GILMOUR
    2. Eddie
    3. Hi, I am hoping someone will be able to help me. I am trying to trace my grandfather Robert GILMOUR. I don't know a great deal about him, but what I have is:- Robert GILMOUR born 1879 Scotland, I am not sure of the area. Married Rachel Perry HUNTER 11th February 1898 at Hamilton, Scotland. They lived in Bothwellhaugh and had 13 children, one of whom was my father Matthew Perry GILMOUR, born 28th February 1913. On 12th April 1924 my grandfather left Glasgow aboard the SS COLUMBIA - Anchor Line, bound for Halifax, Canada. I know these facts are correct. What I don't know is what happened to him when he arrived. As my father died when I was a baby, I can only go on what we heard passed down through the family. Apparently he died approximately 6mths after arriving in Canada as the result of an accident!! Is anyone able to help me with this problem, or give me some advice on where to look. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Regards Edelweiss in Australia
