    40. Marion Pearl10 WIXSON (child of Samuel9, John8, Samuel7, Randal6, Joseph5, Solomon4, Joshua3Wixam, Barnabas2, Robert1); (a.k.a. Gum Gum);[936],[937] born 11 Aug 1909 at 445 Quebec, Toronto, York Co., Ontario, Canada;[938] married William Edward Hulse Morton, son of Edward James Elliott Morton and Alice Theresa Holtorf, 29 Jun 1935 at St. Paul's church, Runnymede, Toronto, York Co., Ontario, Canada; where the maid of honour was Miss Marie Love of Thistletown and Rev. Edward Morely presided;[939] died 12 May 1996 at North York General Hospital, North York, York Co., Ontario, Canada, at age 86.

    Marion, while living with her parents, worked as a clerk at Kodak's in 1929, and then as a teacher from 1930 (Northland Ave. School c. 1935).[940] Between 1936 and 1937, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at 78 Yarrow Rd., Silverthorn, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, followed by a short stay with Bill's parents on Raymond Ave.[941] Between 1938 and 1940, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at 4 Rutherford Ave., Mount Dennis, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, when Bill transferred to Bala Avenue School.[942] Between 1940 and 1949, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at 75 Raymond Ave., Toronto, York Co., Ontario, Canada, renting Bill's parents' house after they had moved back to Bradford. Bill taught high school and coached rugby and track & field at Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute from 1940-1945.[943] Between 1950 and 1954, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at Clarkson Rd., Clarkson, Peel Co., Ontario, Canada.[944] Between 1954 and 1956, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at John Street, Bradford, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada, with Uncle George.[945],[946] Between 1956 and 1965, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at 53 Grenview Blvd., Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada.[947] Between 1966 and 1973, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at Harbour St., Lefroy, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada, "The Cottage" on lake Simcoe.[948] Between 1974 and 1985, Marion Pearl Wixson and William Edward Hulse Morton lived at Con. 11, West Gwillimbury Twp.

    William Edward Hulse MORTON; (a.k.a. Poppa, Uncle Bill)[950],[951] was born on 16 Feb 1913 at Barrie St., Bradford, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada; at his Grandma Stoddart's House.[952],[953] He died on 1 Feb 2000 at Kingston, Ontario, Canada, at age 86. He was buried on 5 Feb 2000 at Christ Church, Holland Landing, Ontario, Canada, after services at Holy Trinity Church, Thornhill.[954] From about 1915 to 1919, Bill lived with his Uncle George and Aunts Eliza and Minnie in Bradford. His first memory was of his Aunts preparing a box of goodies for George who was fighting in the Great War in Europe. From now until his first job, Bill would spend his summers with Uncle George and Uncle Clarence (Minnie's brother) at Clarence's farm north of Bradford.[955] In the fall of 1919, Bill arrived home from Uncle Clarence's farm two days late and so missed the orientation for his school - it was very regimented. On his first day he didn't know where to line up, or that you had to march to class. The prinicple helped him out when his class marched off leaving him in the school yard by himself. Bill remembered his mother telling him that, if asked, he was to say she was Dutch, and not of German heritage as was the case.[956] Edward Reginald Morton sent his "nephew" Bill the Boy's Own Annual from England each Christmas.[957] After finishing high school in 1932, and normal school in 1933, Bill began teaching public school. It was at Harwood Public School that he met Marion Wixson (the 'dead bird' story).[956] Between 1934 and 1935, William Edward Hulse Morton lived at 75 Raymond Ave., Toronto, York Co., Ontario, Canada.[958] While teaching at Vaughan Road Collegiate, Bill coached Bantam Rugby (1941), Senior Rugby, T.D.I.A.A. finalists (1942), restarted the track and field program and won the T.D.I.A.A. championships with Senior Rugby over their arch rival, Runnymead Collegiate Institute (1943). To his students, Bill was known as "Mr. Mort", and "brought back that cherished silverware" as senior rugby coach in 1944.[959],[960],[961] In 1946, Bill joined Noxema Chemical Company of Canada Ltd. and became their Production Manager (1949), Secretary Treasurer (1950) and Vice President and Director by 1952.[962],[963] In 1967, Bill became the Executive Vice-President of Noxema, retiring sometime after 1974.[964]
