John_c, Thank you very much for your post regarding Agnes. Was her surname Chisholm when you knew her? Also do you know if she had any children or mention other family? I know this was a long time ago but I am thrilled you took the time to post.
PT, I have just visited with Agnes Forsythe’s cousin Elliott in London and he confirms that she would have been a cinema/theatre organist. Also that when he met her in 1960’s she was married to Chisholm, but always performed under her maiden name. I would be ever so pleased to have any contact and information regarding her and her family. Thanks,
PT and Sam_e, Thank you for your replies. I only know that the Agnes Forsythe I am looking for was likely born in 1920s to RM Forsythe and his wife May. He came from Ireland. They also had a son Bobby. I have a newspaper picture of Agnes marrying J R Harrod at Trinity Baptist Church. The paper title reads Winnipeg, Tuesday April 9, 1946. I had also been told that she was an accomplished musician – which is how I came across this web page. She would have been a cousin to my grandfather. Any information you can get would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
PT and sam_e,
You both mention an Agnes Forsythe – was she married to JR Harrod? (Sorry this has nothing to do with the cinema, rather a family search but the Agnes I am looking for was apparently an accomplished musician.
