Michael Levine (1869-1918) and Anne Woods (1876-1933) immigrated to Canada in 1889 from Russia and England respectively. They were married in 1892 in Toronto. They lived at 116 Agnes Street around this time. Michael was a merchant and opened a store in Midland, where the family lived for some years, before eventually moving back to Toronto. Their children were Martha (m. Samuels) (b. 1893), Rachael “Rae” (m. Rose) (b. 1894), Aaron “Harry” (b. 1896), Fanny (m. Gunn) (b. 1897), Mary (m. Ginsberg) (b. 1899), Rebecca “Rita” (b. 1901), Moses “Morris” (b. 1904), Abe (b. 1905), and Lillian (b. 1909). In the 1901 Canada Census, a Joe Woods is also listed in Simcoe East, Midland. Joe was likely the brother of Anne Woods Levine. By 1911, the family was living in Toronto at 65 Sullivan Avenue.
