Hi, I am researching the medals of John Walford who was discharged in Montreal in 1841.
I have a great deal of info about his life in England and Canada. His story seemed to end in 1866 in St. JOHN'S District of Toronto.
Then bingo! I found the obituary of his daughter Maria Ann Thompson whose obituary appeared in the Bracebridge Gazette in 1920. Lots of missing pieces and news that she was a pioneer in Draper's Town.
Thought she might have descendants in the area who would be interested in her origins.
