Please copy this:

Re: JOHN BENSON ORVIS (1844-1930)

4. July 27, 1878 ANN CATHERINE ORVIS (m. William Thomas COOK) later (m. Samuel CONNOLLY)
And then:
"8. Aug 13, 1896 ANN CATHERINE (twin) ORVIS (m. Samuel CONNOLLY)"
Should be: 8. Aug 13, 1896 ANN Elizabeth (twin) ORVIS , died in infancy

Re: JOHN BENSON ORVIS (1844-1930)

Ann Catherine Orvis was first married to Thomas Cook Mar 29 1891. The marriage didn't last long. Thomas Cook is found in later census living with his mother. I am not sure if she divorced Thomas Cook. Was she just living common-law with Samuel Connolly and assume his name? She died as Ann Catherine ...

Re: ALEXANDER ANDERSON (1865-1950)

Interesting Story, I was recently contacted by a descendant of William Richard ‘Sharkey’ Thomas and Christina Anderson complaining about how I had posted the wrong information for Sharkey’s family on ancestry. It seems he had told all his children an entirely different story. I ask her to visit this...

Census of 1921: David BRUCE (age 44 and widowed) and his father (Patrick BRUCE)

Re: DAVID ALFRED BRUCE (1876-1969)

Hi again Gary, I believe this belongs to another part of the family tree. In 1923 step-son William James PRUDEN married Florence McLENNAN in St Clements, the daughter of Mary Olivier TELLIER and Frank MACLENNAN (1873-1954). The record reads William James ROBERT Pruden. I have worked this part of the...

Re: DAVID ALFRED BRUCE (1876-1969)

Hi Gary,

Should be: David Thomas Pruden
