Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello: I am principally interested in finding links to the Kimberl(e)y, McCarthy, Lavery and Peters families.

The KIMBERLY/WODDARD family came up from the USA to the Perth, ON, area around 1818 and spread throughout Ontario from that area, and then some to Saskatchewan and BC.

The PETERS/MANTLER family, originally farmers in the Ukraine, came up to Saskatchewan from Texas and S. Dakota around 1901 after the disastrous hurricane in Galveston, Texas, in 1900.

The MCCARTHY/LYON family moved from Bandon, Cork, Ireland, to Ottawa, ON, in the 1840s and then my branch of the McCarthys moved to Winnipeg and some, later to BC. Another branch moved from Ottawa to Kenora, Tulsa, Denver, Los Angeles and Albuquerque. Some remained in the Ottawa area but are hard to trace.

The LAVERY/TURKINGTON family, moved from Magheralin, south of Belfast to Winnipeg in 1911 and others to Treherne, Manitoba, in 1928. Most of the Canadian branch of the family remains in Manitoba but some are in Ontario, British Columbia & Oklahoma. Most of the Laverys, however, remain in N. Ireland (not under the name "Lavery" as they are the descendants of two sisters.) Bill Lavery, May 22, 2013
(Recently a branch of the Lavery family
which emigrated to Baltimore, Maryland, in the 1800s and whose descendants are still living there has been discovered. Jan. 2014)

Have James Samuel Wodruff Kimberley marriage license to Hanna Nelson, age 17, of Beachburg dated Jan.15 1891 and we believe that she's the mother of Mary Pearl ~ however, we don't have a date of death for her and the only date of marriage for James to Catherine Mousseau is dated 1919 (which we speculate to be a re-marriage after his conversion from Baptist to R.C.)~ therefore wondering what information led you to designate Mary Pearl as half-sister to James Albert?
Thanks for your time, Bev

RE: Graves in KC
Thanks, I just called over there and got their answering machine. Thought they were open until noon, guess I was wrong. The reason for asking who was the oldest I was thinking the family plot would be under the oldest name and the others would be interred with them.

RE: Campbell Requests
I thought maybe I would give them a call and see what I can do. Which of the Campbell members is the oldest?

No big deal on the bb team. At least we did'nt get swept. Without their ace pitcher I think it would have been a walk-in-the-park. My heart is on the weak side so I didn't even watch the last two games.

Photo Requests
Thanks for adding the photos to the memorials.

The photo requests you made we can do if you call the cemetery and get their locations. If a non-family person calls to get the info there will be a charge for the service.
Their info:
Mount Washington Cemetery

Bethel Cemetery
I was born and raised in Cobden but now live in the USA. I have added 5 photo requests for the Bethel Cemetery which you have previously photographed some of the markers in that cemetery.
Was hoping you could get some pictures before the snow hits your area.

Thanks Bill, Much appreciated.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the Brookside Cemetery's office does not seem to have any record of a Reginald Tugwell. We checked alternate spellings as well.

Tugwell in Winnipeg
Hi, I have found the obituaries for Reginald and Vera Tugwell on the archives website for the Winnipeg Free Press. Do you have these already, or should I send you copies by email ? On Reginald's initial death announcement it says he was cremated, and then his full obituary does not say anything about where his remains went. His wife was later buried with her parents, Max & Augusta Neroda. Not sure where Reginald was buried, if at all.
