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. Some stayed in the Perth area and others spread throughout Ontario. Some then went to Saskatchewan and BC.

The MANTLER family, originally farmers in the Ukraine,emigrated to the USA. Some 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. living relatives 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,County Down, south of Belfast to Winnipeg in 1911 and others to Treherne, Manitoba, in 1928. A few of the Canadian branch of the family remain in Manitoba but some are in Ontario, British Columbia & Oklahoma. Some of the Laverys, however, remain in N. Ireland not under the name "Lavery" as they are the descendants of two female lines.) Bill Lavery, May 22, 2013
(Recently a branch of my Lavery family which emigrated to Baltimore, Maryland, in the 1800s and whose descendants are still living there has been discovered. Jan. 2014)

Hi Bill:

I received an edit from you to change her DOD from 1913 to 1830. I assume you meant to have the 1830 date added as her DOB and not her DOD. If so, please resubmit the edit as I have declined this one.

Thanks much.

Thanks Bill, do you think Company Sgt~Mjr Percival J Brigden#56674891 is brother? Lists E Brigden as next of kin.

RE: Harold & Wanda
I really do appreciate all the trouble you have gone through to get us some pictures.
The signs that you were picking up was that of your political candidate and did they win?
Would be glad to give you recognition on any of the photos I use, no problem.
Don't know what size camera you use but would you send me the original size. Makes it easier to work with.
My email address is on my profile but I'll add it here also.

Thanks again!

RE: Photos
No problem with the Jays. I guess I'm in good shape cause either one wins I'm ok. Since I'm still a Canadian my loyalty is probably stronger on the Jay side. Don't tell anybody it's our secret.

Cemeteries by Micksburg
Hope all is going well with you, been a bit since we chatted.
I'm trying to find two cemeteries on FindAGrave but have not had any luck. On a satelite map one is the Presbyterian Cemetery just west of Micksburg on the Micksburg Line. The arch over the cemetery says 'Presbyterian Cemetery' and my GPS readings are 45.670572, -77.046296. The other I can not read a sign but the GPS is 45.661569, -77.035276. Not sure but I hope I didn't get the GPS locations swithed. If I did I know you will get them right.
Please lrt me know what you find. If you go there and you find a stone for Daniel McIntyre please photograph himm and any family and I will make requests for what you find.

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
