Any info greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Doris

Couture

I'm looking for information on Grace Yvonne Eniza Couture, born in Burk's Falls, Parry Sound, in January 1901. Her father was Samuel Joseph Couture and her mother was probably Josephine O'Brien (but may also have been Margaretee McKay or Mary Ann Nichols. Her father died in 1916 and the next record I find of her was when she married Robert Burns MacMillan in Ontario in 1928. He died just months later and then she married George Crane Loomis in Chicago a year later. They then moved to Lombard, IL, USA in 1936 and adopted a son who then died a year later and it seems she had some kind of nervous breakdown. By 1940, she and George Loomis were no longer living together and I lose all trace of her. I'd really like to fill in some of the holes of her life story (between 1916 and 1928 and then after 1939).

Cribbie

My grandfather is Douglas Blake Cribbie (born in 1930 unsure of date, we believe he died in 1990 but I was only 2 so I'm not positive), he was married to Marion Joyce Hamilton. I've been unable to find any information about who my great grandfather (Doug's father) may be. Doug only had one child, named Kenneth Blake Cribbie (b. 1949) who is my father.

Thank you

Dane
Jeannie
Hello

I am Looking for information regarding Paul Dane. He came to Canada from Ireland in 1868 and settled on Tondern Island (which is now Beaumaris). He died on October 21, 1872 and I believe he was buried in the Church of England cemetery although I cannot find any facts to support the location of the burial site. I would particularly like to know his Irish history and that connection to the McCarthy family prior to their arrival in Canada.


Thank you!
