DEATH OF DONALD CHISHOLM
The death occurred on August 5, of Donald Alonzo Chisholm who passed away at the Red Cross Hospital, Thessalon, after a short illness. The deceased was born at St. Catherines (sic) in the year 1844 being in his 89th year, was married in Goderich to Emma Burnett, of Sheguindah (sic) on June 15, 1872. Following the trade of a cooper in his in his early days, he graduated to the sea and sailed the lakes for many years, obtaining, eventually his captain’s papers. The late Mr. Chisholm served in the Fenian Raid, and was a lifelong member of the L.O.L. and was a great lover of home and family. Fearing his sons would follow him in seafaring, he forsook sailing and farmed for over thirty years on the Manitoulin. His father John Wilson Chisholm was magistrate and lighthouse keeper at Michaels Bay, and the first white man to take up residence on the Island, this was in 1865.
He leaves to mourn his loss, four sons: Frank, Thersalon (sic); John, Thessalon and Harvey (address unknown); and two daughters, Mrs. Wm. Burnett, Sheguindah, and Mrs. Chas. Sim, Thessalon. The only surviving sister is Mrs. John Snow, of Spokane, Wash.
The remains were taken to Sheguinah (sic), the funeral taking place on August 7. The pall bearers were all grandsons: Percy Finch, Morley Burnett, Wallace Burnett, Geo. Wright, Reuben Stringer, Robt. Adams.

just figured out that Herman Walter Chisholm’s mother wasn’t Emma Grace Cann, because she died 14 March 1926.

John Wilson Chisholm was married to Cordelia (Della) Bailey June 26, 1926 and had Herman Walter Chisholm 8 months later OR they got pregnant before getting married.

Ontario Vital Records – Marriages – # 031790
John Wilson Chishol, farmer, widower, age 28 years, United Church, residing at Township of Day, born at Cold Springs, Manitoulin Island and Della Beatrice Bailey, spinster, age 18 years, church of Christ, residing at Township of Thessalon, born at Selkirk, Ontario, were married June 26, 1926 by James Scott Duncan at Thessalon, Ontario, United Church of Canada. Registration Certificate Number: 1197. Witnesses: E.J. Ausley of Thessalon and E.C. Smith of Thessalon. Parents of groom: Donald Alonzo Chisholm born at Goderich, Ontario and Emily Burnett. Parents of Bride: Thomas Ward Bailey, born Ontario and Edith Clementine Cann. Both Bride and Groom can read and write.

Herman’s  (walter chisholm)date of birth according to burial records is feb 7, 1927, however on ancestry they’ve marked his birth as 1926 and 1925. (both incorrect).

calculator

he total number of days between Saturday, June 26th, 1926 and Monday, February 7th, 1927 is 226 days.

This is equal to 7 months and 12 days.

This does not include the end date, so it’s accurate if you’re measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be227 days.

If you’re counting workdays or weekends, there are 160 weekdays and 66 weekend days.

If you include the end date of Feb 7, 1927 which is a Monday, then there would be 161 weekdays and 66 weekend days including both the starting Saturday and the ending Monday.

226 days is equal to 32 weeks and 2 days.

The total time span from 1926-06-26 to 1927-02-07

http://www.convertunits.com/dates/from/Jun+26,+1926/to/Feb+7,+1927

pregnancy time

But even after excluding babies who were born preterm, the length of pregnancy ranged from about 35 to 40 weeks from the day of conception to the day of birth (or about 38 to 43 weeks from the day of a woman’s last menstrual period.)

so around 7.5 months, I wonder if he was premature?
