NotesA birth registration was found for Rose Mary A Alexander: Year of Registration: 1873; Quarter of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep; District: Kensington; County: Greater London, London, Middlesex; Volume: 1a; Page: 116.

In 1887, Rose Alexander, 14, arrived at Quebec, Canada, in a group of 18 girls from Miss Alexander's party from Sutton, Surrey, England, accompanied by Mrs. Rose Wallace, matron, and en route to Miss Alexander's home at 51 Northcote Ave., Toronto, Ontario, Canada. (The girls were from Charlotte A. Alexander's Girl's Training Home at The Red Cottage, Great Warley, Brentwood, England.)

On March 5, 1912, at London, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, a marriage was registered between Rose Alexander, 38, domestic, born to John W and Elizabeth Alexander; and Silas O'Neil, 46, farmer, born to William L. O'Neil and Mary Jane Beamer.

An interesting, albeit incorrect, sidenote. In "McGillivray Township Remembers, 1842-1992," page 265, it says, in the sketch on the O'Neil family: "Silas remained single and stayed on the farm until his mother died in 1917."

In October, 1916, Rose O'Neil, 43, and her husband Silas O'Neil, 52, entered the United States through the port of Niagra Falls, New York. She declared that her contact in Canada was her mother-in-law, Mary Jane O'Neil, Ontario, Canada; that her final destination was Unionville, Ohio. She was described as 5 foot 4 inches in height; medium complexion; brown eyes; brown hair. She was born in Kensington, England; and entered Montreal, Canada, in 1887 on the Corean.

Rose Alexander O'Neil died prior to 1920, probably in Michigan. This is documented in the 1920 US Census which shows her husband, Silas O'Neal, 55, widower, born in Canada, working as a hired hand for George H Shuttleworth and family in Ray, Macomb, Michigan. (Census Place: Ray, Macomb, Michigan; Roll: T625_782; Page: 6B; Enumeration District: 81; Image: 912.)

From the book: Ruffled Mistresses and Discontented Maids: Respectability and the Case of Domestic Service, 1880-1914, by Magda Fahmi NAC CAAP MG29 C58 Volume 1

Rose Alexander, age fourteen, obtained a situation in Gananoque in 1887 at eight dollars a month. She, too, was let go; apparently "she had been pilfering, untruthful, constantly in stable with groom, generally unsatisfactory."
