Eyeguy on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
Seeking descendants or relatives of Byron CASWELL 1862 - 1937 and Sarah Elizabeth FRANCE 1861 who had eleven children, including Frank b1890, in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada.
An online book and other research of the CASWELL family can be found at:
In particular, I am looking for the family described in the following excerpt from the book:
"He (Frank CASWELL) was born on December 15, 1890. He died in Toronto on January 3, 1966. His ashes are in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Crematorium on Yonge Street, North., Toronto. His first wife, Mabel Beatty, died November 19, 1940. On November 29, 1947, he married Mrs. Hazel M. Dickinson. She died in Toronto on June 27, 1977, and is buried there."
Mabel BEATTY 1892 - 1940 was born in Havelock, Ontario, the daughter of Robert BEATTY and Sophia COLLINS. Do you know whether Frank and Mabel had any children? And, if so, how to contact them?
In 1891 at Battersea, London, James Albert SPRING 1865 married Hannah Maria DENTON c1866, daughter of George DENTON, a coal porter.
Hannah DENTON's birth may have been registered at Kensington in 1867 and she may have been employed as a servant (cook) by the BIRD family in 1891 at Chiswick, Middlesex.
James and Hannah emigrated to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1910 and their family included Herbert, Arthur, Maud, Leonard, Edna and Beatrice SPRING.
If you have any info about George DENTON, his wife and family, please contact us.
Safilmena WEESE, aka Sophia WEESE or COLLINS, b1865 in Peterborough County, Ontario, Canada married Robert BEATTY, 1867-1908. Sophia's parents were David WEESE & Elizabeth COLLINS who also had Charity WEESE 1876, William WEESE 1877, Ida WEESE 1879, Albert WEESE 1880 and Rosanna 1884.
Looking for descendents of Robert BEATTY and Sophia, namely Harold BEATTY b1891 and Mabel/Mable BEATTY b1892, possibly in the Toronto area. Please contact us with ANY information.
