Martin, Forrester, Thornton

Margaret Martin, born in Glasgow in 1891. She immigrated to Canada after 1911 possibly to be near her brothers, Duncan and James.
Margaret, or "Meg" was in the Windsor are up to 1963 at which time she was about 73 years of age.
Margaret, "Meg" was married but the date and husband's name is unknown. She possibly had children, either Mae or Fred in the Windsor area.

The second lady in question is Lucy Martin whose married name was Forrester. I have her burial but am looking for her husband with date of marriage and her children's information.

Lucy was born about 1885 and immigrated to Canada between 1911 and 1915. Lucy died in 1937 at which time her married name was Forrester. She is buried in Windsor.
I do know that Lucy and her husband had at least three children, Leach, Dorothy and Annie Forrester.

Lucy's family might have only moved to Windsor in about 1935. They resided on Queen St.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you know if Lucy Martin is any relation to:

Jean Baptiste Martin born in Quebec about 1835 (buried in L'Assumption, Windsor), & who married Therese Renaud b. 1834 in Windsor & their children:
Fabronie, Elizabeth and Mary Martin born 1860-62 in Windsor?

Elizabeth Martin Fields was my husband's grandmother.

I have a Rose Ladouceur of Windsor, married to Arthur, who died April of 1964 and has siblings named Miss Sophie Martin of Windsor, Alphie, Freddie, Herby, Jerry, and a few others. I assume that Rose is nee Martin.

Children are Harry of Windsor, Dolores and Mrs. Elmer Talbot of Windsor.

I need help to find out for sure if this Rose Ladouceur is the daughter of William and Isabella Martin nee Maillet.

Any help appreciated. Rose was a member of Our Lady of the Rosary Church per the obit that was given to me.

Lucy Forrester who died in a car accident in 1937 had six children Leach (married Violet McLeod), Annie (married Carl Swatman), Dorothy (married George Lazarus), Thelma (died at 6 mos), Margaret (died approx. aged 10) and an unnamed infant son. Lucy's maiden name was Thornton. She was born in England and immigrated to Canada with her sister Rose Thornton. They lived in Westboro just outside of Ottawa, Ontario. Rose married Scotsman Duncan Martin are returned to Scotland. They had two sons.

Lucy and her husband John William Forrester moved to Windsor, probably mid 1930's.

I do not know the date of their "marriage" as the Anglican Church in Ottawa burned down along with all records. John was legally married in England and abandoned his wife and eight children when he immigrated to Canada where he married Lucy.
