Doing my best, Al. Social worker at a children's hospital so kind of on the front line. Have done screening at the front door, put down x's every six feet (front entrance, parking and within the Resource Centre where I work), and other "duties as assigned". Expect to be seconded or deployed elsewhere next week as our staffing will rise a bit.
Hello Mr Dawson, it has been yrs I think I chatted with you about my Cox family. I am intrested in sharing information with you if you are still on this site, please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I get the messages faster there than on this site
That's where the Wares lived for a couple of generations! Lucy married Edmund Joseph Ware about 1901, and her dad helped him build a corner store across the Don River when the Danforth first opened up. I'm descended from their son, and have seen the store.
most of my Frazee.s lived in Iowa But my 5th Great grandfather was born in New Jersey,and my 4th Great Grand parent were Jousha Frazee and Nancy reed and they where married in Westmoreland, Pennsylvania
My great-grandmother, Lucy Agnes Dawson was
Born: Sep 20 1881
Died: May 4 1936 (at age 54)
She was born in North York township, now part of Toronto, and also died in Toronto.
Her parents, James Dawson and Mary Herbert, had been married in Scotland not too long before. James died in July, 1926 in Toronto. I've been told by her daughter that Lucy was an only child.
Thank you for the information on FGS. I was hoping to get more training in Genealogy this year, either in my personal time or by attending conferences. I will see what I can do about making the trip. My Taylor and Smith line starts somewhere in Pennsylvania or New England, with no trace to Europe. They may have come from Europe to US or from Europe to Canada to US. However, all my ties to the Northern European ancestry is from the early Colonial times, when many of the families from Europe migrated into the US. It is hard to trace the lineage back to Europe since that was around 1600-1700 already.!!
However from DNA testing, I matched with someone who originated from Ireland.!!
One, Dick Shea wrote: Jim and I have common ancestors who lived in Co. Kerry, Ireland. The surnames are: Shea; Richardson; Moloney; Herbert; and Eagar. Our ancestors lived in several different locations in Kerry, namely Kenmare, Killarney, Tralee, Duagh, and Listowel. Also they are tied with Smith who moved to England.
This is getting a bit spooky because I am also related to Herman Husband who is my 4th Great Grandfather and he was instrumental with being one of the "Farmers" starting the Battle of Alamance.... Some people say it was the beginning of the American Revolution. He lived in North Carolina and has quite the story connected with him after he left North Carolina and headed to Pennsylvania. I just love his story... do you know anything about that?
Sorry to hear about the health problems you have been undergoing. You sure so write fast... Guess it is because I have the Super Bowl on now but thinking about turning it off. Poor San Francisco.... gotta hope a West Coast team wins...
Hi CUZ. Thank you for inviting me as a friend. Now I not only have you as a Wakefield CUZ but could have you as a Barnes CUZ too as my mother's grandmother was a Barnes and my father's grandmother was also a Barnes... I can't find any connection (thank goodness, otherwise I would have to admit that is why I am the way I am)!!!!
My mother's Barnes line hits a brick wall at her Father, Milburn C. (Believe it is Charles) Barnes born 1718 in VA... but the town is not known, therefore back then it could have been West Virginia as that boundary was changed over time. My dad's grandmother Barnes is Olive Hill Small 1857-1944 Born Long Lake, Hennepin, MN, who married Shepard Blanchard Barnes 1819- 1898 born Kingfield, Franklin, Maine, his father was Nathanial B. Barnes 1773-1851 born Lee Penobscot, Maine, and his father was Nathanial Barnes 1742 in Harpswell, Maine. then his father Nathanial (DUH) born in Ireland. So, if I could find out more about my mother's Barnes we would have a better idea if we are also related in the Barnes group....but we both have Barnes and Wakefield, What a hoot! CUZ Molly
