Ada Walker Eddie was my gr. grandmother. She came to Canada in 1882 as a 14 yr. old to work for Joseph & Helen Eddie. In 1885 she married their son, Robert Eddie. Her maiden name was Ada Walker. I am looking for any information pertaining to her travel arrangements from England and placement in the Eddie home. Would welcome any information about Ada. All I have are Ontario BMDs, census records and a bit of family information.

I am interesting in finding out anything about the England family, who settled in Huntsville ca. 1875. I am a great-granddaughter of Richard England. Any information about the family would be greatly appreciated.
I now know that the family first came to London, Ontario, and was originally from Alkerton, Oxfordshire.

As volunteers for the Lake of the Woods Museum and the Kenora Great War Project where we are researching and writing tributes for all who served in WW1 and lived in the area at some point, one fellow on our list is Emerson Farnsworth. Born in the Township of Brunel, after the war Emerson and his wife Ruby returned to Brunel. Emerson died on 1 April 1974 and I have both he and his 1st and 2nd wive's obituaries from the Huntsville Forester but neither say where their final resting place is, the name of the cemetery. I was hoping someone might be able to look it up to see where they are interred.

We are currently searching for ancestors of ours who lived in Maplewood, Township of Sinclair at the turn of the 20th century. We have details from the 1911 census of a Henry and Ann Field, sons George, James, Thomas, William, Alfred and Robert. One of their daughter in laws was Rosa who in turn had a daughter called Eva May. We have found the grave stone on the pioneercemetries website of Ann, George and William and was hoping to get more information from your members.

Henry was the brother of my Great, Great Grandfather and we have researched this family line back to 1721 in England. We hope we can find details of them and of any surving relatives. We hope to visit PEI in 2007 (we are English in case you hadn't guessed!).

Thanks for your time

Ken Drabinsky

I am inquiring about the name Emily Frankum or Emma Frankum born between 1920-1930? and Thomas Leeder/Leider/Leader (1918-1946) from Bracebridge and/or Baysville. It is believed Emma moved to Toronto in the late 1940's after her first child was born and given up for adoption. Any leads would be appreciated, thanks.

I am pursuing the origins of the Hammonds of the Dufferin and Muskoka regions in Ontario. My Hammonds are from Dufferin ( William Hammond and Jane Westover ) and we have no surviving male heirs to the surname Hammond. Another branch of the name settled in the Muskoka region. They were John Hammond (1841-1916) and Isabella Harriet Craig (1844-1914). Their offspring are numerous. I am looking for a male heir of this branch who is amenable to having a DNA swab test analyzed at Family Tree DNA. I will pay for an Autosomal DNA ( Family Finder) and a yDNA 37 marker test for a cousin who is willing.The male offspring of John and Isabella were: Wesley, Egbert, John J., Robert E., and William H. THEIR male offspring include: Reginald, Ron, Ross, Anson, Robert, Calvin, Elmer, Aubrey, Alonzo, Cecil, and Orvil. If you know any male Hammonds who you think might Spring from these names, please refer them to this inquiry. They can contact me at

Ken Helmkay

I am wondering if anyone has information on the Helmkay family. Henry Helmkay (wife was Mary Jane McCance) moved into the north in the 1870s; he is shown as landowner in 3 townships in the 1879 Muskoka guide and atlas: Foley, Humphrey, and Christie.
