When I have extra time I like to review my family tree to make sure that I have correct sources. While reviewing Thomas and his family a friend noticed that there was another child on the ship manifest. (I was working at the Barrie Family History Centre with Lois Holt). It was Lois who noticed that there were 4 children on the manifest. How did I miss Florence Cramer?
Her name was hard to read so we magnified the page (as high as the magnification would go) to see the name. Florence was born in 1903 and her family lived in Toronto. Unfortunately I then found a death record for Florence. She died on the 14th of August in 1904 of cholera.
I am grateful that Lois found Florence. Renewing your records is a good idea as there are more and more records available online. It is also good to review your records with another researcher. A second pair of eyes can help!
