I am looking for information on my great grandfather William Burrs. Records indicate his birthplace was in Gravenhurst 1878 and that he was adopted by a William Ellis, who owned land in the area. He married my great grandmother Minnie Kate Parker and they had two daughters, Beatrice Victoria and Idella Grace. I did obtain a rcord of their marriage and it was transcribed as William Burns instead of Burrs. Truly appreciate any leads. Also know he died in 1911 in MacGregor, Manitoba.

Looking for burial location for Kirby Austin b. 28 Aug 1924 d. 12 Jun 2008. Marjorie Irene (Brook) Austin b. 30 Dec 1929 d. 21 Dec 2000. Both lived & died in Huntsville ON. Kirby from Novar ON and Marjorie from Etwell ON. I have checked with Huntsville cemeteries and they tell me they have no record of them there. I have information for all Austins in Perry Twp, which includes Novar, and they are not there. I checked for Etwell Twp and it appears there is only a very small cemetery there, probably no longer active. Their children were baptised in St. Andrews/Novar United Church. Marjorie's parents who lived in Etwell for a very long time are buried in Hutcheson Memorial Cemty in Huntsville. Kirby's parents are buried in St. Andrews/Novar United Church Cemty. I have their obituaries but neither says where they were being interred. Anyone know anything about this?

I am trying to find out more about my grandmother Beverly. She was adopted and so researching her family history has been a hassle. I assume because adoption papers are protected of course. Her and my Grandpa Ray had three children together (Luke, Joe and Rebecca). My Grandparents separated sometime between 1962-1967. I am trying to find either a wedding certificate or divorce certificate for them. I have an ancestrydna account and I've been able to trace the Pascall side of the family back to my 7 times Great Grandparents. They're from England and Ireland. However, I can't seem to do any more research on my Grandma Beverly's side because I do not know her biological parents last name.

Does a transcription exist for Lakeview Cemetery in Gravenhurst? If so, could somebody possibly do a look-up for me, for George Russell, b. 1830, d. Jan 25, 1923, husband of Eliza Reid. Thanks!

James Noble Kennedy
James Noble Kennedy was accidentally drowned with three other men on 30 June 1899 at Parry Sound, leaving a widow Charlotte (nee Chester), a 2-year-old son, and it is believed one other child. What was the cause of the accident, and is it known what happened to his widow and small children? His son Harvey James Kennedy was my mother's first husband., and father of my half-brother Ronald and half-sister Thelma (both now deceased).
