Karen, you have been so much help. With your assistance I have found
copies of two death notices: Joseph Leonard Matthews and James Hubert
Matthews. I am still missing The notice for Harold Whitehouse Matthews
who I believe died around 1978.

I have also found a daughter of Joseph's called Marjorie Van Norman
(born around 1930-35).

Is there any way you can find any more information about Harold and his
niece Marjorie?

Hello Gregor,
The only Henderson's Directories I have are the 1947, 1948, 1954, 1963,
and 1978.

I did check for other family membors living with Joseph and Violet
but found none. Only other information I have is this.
1947 Joseph was the proprietor for Radio Electric
1954 Joseph was the proprietor for Radio Service
1963 Joseph was a service manager for Brennan Radio and T.V. 1966 Joseph
was a service manager for C.F. Brennan Radio and T.V. 1978 Joseph was an
electronic technician for Mid West Musical

In the 1947 and 1948 Henderson's Directories I have a J. Hubert who is a

general clerk for Canadian National Railway Express living at 248
I can't find him after that but believe he is the one buried at the St.
Vital Cemetery who died on April 15, 1982.

I find Harold W. Matthews in 1947 living at 269 Kitson and he is an
for Dominion Income Tax. 1948 same. 1954 he is shown with a wife, Evelyn

with the same job but now living at 76 Braemar Avenue in the St.
area of Winnipeg. 1963 shows Harold retired and his wife is shown as
and he is still at the same address. 1966 Harold andEdna at the same
but now he is a consultant for C B Hare & Co. Information is the same
1978. There are no other family membors living with them. In order for
children to be listed they would need to be over the age of 18 and still

living at home.

The Winnipeg Public Library will do a 10 year search in the Henderson's
Directories for you. The web page is
There is a section to ask the librarian

Hope this helps a little bit.
