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 went to Saskatchewan and BC.

The 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 PETERS family came from the Crimea, through England to Canada. They settled in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The MCCARTHY 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 so far have been hard to trace.

The LYON family moved from London, England, to Ottawa, Ontario, and then moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

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 branches of the family remain in Manitoba but some are in Ontario, British Columbia & Oklahoma. Most of the Laverys, however, remain in N. Ireland not always under the name "Lavery" as they are the descendants of two female lines.) 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)

Thank you very much to Bill Lavery for posting the headstone pictures of my sisters grave.

I was hoping the adoptive mother would send me some pictures or someone who known that family, as the only picture I had of my sister is now destroyed,

So if you know of someone who has any pictures of her when she was 6 , I would really appreciate this,

Thank you again

sometime this month I will be back in Treherne, and I will take close-up photos of the Latimer stone that show the dates better. There are some Latimers in the Rossendale Cemetery as well, which I photographed last year. They are related to these Latimers

if you click on the picture several times larger versions of the picture will come up. There are still a few more Latimer pictures to come...

Latimer and Sturton
Hi. I uploaded a photo of the gravestone for Robert John Latimer and his wife Mabel, nee Sturton. Then I realized the photo quality wasn't so good, so about 15 minutes later I uploaded the same picture but with higher quality. Unfortunately, it is still a little bit hard to read, when it comes to Robert's birth date. Sorry about that.

Latimer graves in Treherne, Manitoba
Hi. I recently was taking pictures in the Woodlands (East Treherne) Cemetery, Treherne, Manitoba. I took pictures of all the graves for certain surnames that I know, and Latimer is one of them. I see you already have created memorials for many of these Latimers. I was wondering if you could create photo requests for all the Latimers you have in that cemetery, and then when I add the pictures I could get credit for doing photo requests :) I added a picture to one of the Latimers there already. Thanks

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
