Re: Carley/family

Tried your email but not in service. This may help.
My great-aunt was Mary Ellen Burman (sister of my grandfather Charles Burman).

I have recently found a reference to a marriage of Eva Louisa Carley (daughter of George Carley and Mary Burman), age 27.
She married Garnet Alexander Campbell, age 41, a widower, carpenter, at Wallaceburg, Ontario Canada on August 14, 1926.

Eva's occupation is listed as being domestic help and living in Dresden and Wallaceburg Ontario.

Garnet is listed as living in Dover Township, Chatham. His parents are John Campbell (born: Canada) and Letitia Stewart.

Witnesses were George Carley of Wallaceburg and Violet Moore of London Ontario.

As an aside (and not helpful to you!) as a young person I remember visiting "the Carleys". I'm now 65 and my parents are dead. I confirmed with a cousin that she remembers relatives called Carley but they are only a name for her. We may have visited them in Windsor, Chatham, Wallaceburg or any of a number of small towns in Essex or Kent Counties or even the Detroit area. But it indicates there may be male decedents in that line.

Also one document I have lists George's middle name as James.

Another has George and Mary Ellen Carley as witnesses at the marriage of her sister Jane Burman to a John Wesley Smith on Feb 4, 1904.
