Basics only. Any information would be helpful!


When Howard Henry Ransom was born on April 2, 1867, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, when his father, Howard Ransom, was 29 and his mother, Maria Benallack, was 21. He is listed as having been a merchant in Montreal and in 1890 married Jane Parslow. Jane died childless, and on 14 April 1896, Howard married Isabella Linley who had been born on December 9, 1866, in Canada as the daughter of Charles Linley and Isabella Jones.
They had two children, Howard Charles Linley Ransom (1903 – 1976), and Audrey Isabel Gertrude (Scadding) Ransom (1904 – 1992).
They lived in Hochelaga, Quebec from 1901 for about 20 years and Howard died on May 10th, 1925 at the age of 58. It is presumed that they had moved to Montreal by that time because he is buried in Montreal. Isabella died on October 19th, 1945 in Westmount, and is also buried in Montreal.
