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).

We have lived in the 4 Cornors House in Utterson for 3 years now and hope to find out some history. Specifically if it was ever in a Guiness Worldbook or Rippleys Believe it or Not.. If so does anyone have that publication I can purchase. I know James Appolony lived and work out of the house and ran an ice cream shop. Any memories or information would be appreciated

I am hoping to receive information regarding a 'James Wilson . Beleque' family. The family built a church somewhere in the Parry Sound area. Apparently the church is still standing and if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm hoping to get in touch with any remaining family members (siblings, nieces/nephews) of Robert George Smith, b 15 June 1924 and d 23 November 1943. Robert was a guardsman with the Canadian Grenadier Guards, and died in an accident while serving overseas. From the page on the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/memorials/canadian-virtual-war-memorial/detail/2928986?Robert%20George%20Smith), I know that Robert's parents were James Le Roy Smith (Roy) and Pearl Martha Pelina Smith. He had a brother named Bill, and three sisters named Alice, Ellen and Florence. Florence has a son named Bob.


I have information I believe may be of interest to the family, and would greatly appreciate any help that could be given in putting me in touch with them.

Thank you.

I am looking for a Florence "Carol" Smith-White , last known to be living in Orrville/Parry Sound, ON. Carol is a distant cousin of mine and I have lost touch with her. She was married to the late James Kenneth White (d. 2015) and has three sons (Rob, Ian and Vance) I believe that she may be on your Board in some capacity or be a member.. I would like to reconnect with he if possible as she appears to have moved from the last address that I have. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide!
