My wife's gg grandfather, George Waltenbury was living in Franklin Twp in lots 21 of Con V and VI in the 1881census and was single. I have a reference to a marriage on 12 July 1882 in Huntsville but no document. George married Margaret Jane McIlwain who was a near neighbour in 1881. Their daughter, Emily Jane was born in 1883 in Haystack Bay. I am looking for a marriage record that would help to establish George's connection to his parents, William Waltenbury/g and Malinda Lightheart of Chinguacousy, Peel County.

Looking for information on Calvin "Clarence" Wilson born 1906 died 1969. A second cousin on my paternal side. It is family lore that Clarence worked for the Royal Muskoka hotel and they gave him a cottage to live in on Lake Joseph.. I have searched records and can't seem to find his death/burial informationor a location of the cottage. We used and helped maintain the cottage in the 1960's. Clarence was married/living with a lady named Betty. When Clarence died Betty sold the cottage and my family was never able to contact her.

I was referred to you by the Nipissing Branch. I am looking for some information about someone buried in Christie Memorial Cemetery. On findagrave, they are listed as a female, but I suspect it is a male and is my 3-g grandfather. His name is Francis Cochenour and he is buried with James Cochenour. Francis died Jan 22, 1914 and James died Dec 31, 1912. Can you find any information about him? I live in Arizona. Judy

I am looking for any information regarding a STOLZ family who came from Michigan, USA to Bracebridge, ON in 1962 and gave birth to a boy on December 17th. The infant was named Keith James Stolz and then given for adoption and renamed Robert Christopher Old. Keith James Stolz/Robert Christopher Old was my biological Father and I did not get to meet him before he passed in 2005. I am looking to complete my family tree on Ancestry and have had no luck thus far completing my tree even with DNA results. Thank you for reading.
