Bio and Links
Bio Photo Besides an interest in my own relatives, wherever they may have lived, I also have a general interest in the genealogy of Frontenac County and Lennox & Addington County in Ontario. More specific information can be found on my home page.

Candles left by me in a flowering section represent persons related to me.

I am almost always willing to give permission for the use of my headstone photographs, but you must ask permission first.

Please note that I will not add links to Burial Unknowns. If the final disposition of the remains is not known, then that person should not be listed on Find A Grave in the first place, as it does not meet the purpose of the site.

Lillie McComish Voltary
Hi Brant,
I just sent you an edit for birth and death dates for Lillie McComish. I just wanted to let you know that these dates are from her death certificate. Cause of Death was tuberculosis. She was 27 years old. I you would like me to email you the death certificate, just let me know.

Greetings Brsnt, I've found you on Ancestry and the Internet and now I have found you here :). I've decided it's time to work on my Babcock family so I'll probably be sending edits you way depending on what I find and you happen to manage on here

RE: Trevor Casnaw
My information Meryl Vankoughnett is based entirely on secondary sources. All the family trees on Ancestry (4) that reference Meryl, have her with the name Audrey Meryl. On the balance of probabilities, I would lean toward considering Audrey and Meryl to be the same person. One of the family trees has Audrey Meryl married to Mr. Casnaw and a Mr. Pat Magee. However, another tree has her married to a Corkey which I find hard to believe. In the absence of a primary source, I would not say anything definitely. However, between you and me, there is some but not a lot of circumstantial evidence for the two husband theory.

RE: Trevor Casnaw
I obtained the 1990 date from a family tree. I would go with the grave-stone as you are doing in the absence of more definitive documentation as you say. I will change my death date to yours as well.

RE: Trevor Casnaw
Yes. Audrey was a daughter of Reta. According to animalgirl15, Putman Family Tree, on Ancestry, the second wife of Jack Casnaw was Barbara Clayton (? - 30 Jul 2004)

RE: Reta Vankoughnett
Hi Brant:

Reta May Lee Smith (August 18, 1908 - 1969) was married to Clarence Edward Manley Vancoughnett (17 Jan 1911 - 2 Sep 1993) who was the son of Edward Sanderson Vancoughnett (1882-1955) and Elizabeth Timmerman (1887-1941). I obtained this information from Roberta Poncho on Ancestry and it checks out against the documentation. For confirmation, please consult Ontario, Canada Births 1869-1913.

Kindest regards,

Steven Canvin

Hi Brant:

You may recall that we corresponded regarding the Snooks.

With regard to Trevor Manley Casnaw (September 4, 1968-1990), according to Robert Poncho on Ancestry, he is the son of Audrey Meryl Vankoughnett Casnaw (1933-1995) and John "Jack" Everett Casnaw (1932-1995.

Kindest regards,

Steven Canvin

RE: George Lindsay Balfour
Hi Brant, my wife took photos of the Balfour headstones last weekend, so I will add them shortly.

I don't think I have any photos of George & Eva Balfour but I will look.
