Hi Emily
When I read your query re: surnames Walton, Kelly and Crooks, I thought I had some information that might be of interest.
My husband Richard Allan Crooks is the son of Thomas Edward Crooks and Lillian Harris. His grandmother was Mary Jane Kelly (1880-1965)and John "Jack" Henry Crooks(1883-1931).
Mary Jane was the daughter of Thomas Kelly and Elizabeth Edmondson. She had a brother Thomas Henry "Harry" Kelly, and two sisters Amelia Gertrude and Agnes Elizabeth Kelly.
Mary Jane married Jack on Sept 3,1904 in Carlisle, England.
They had 6 children Ellen "Nellie" 1905-??, Thomas Edward 1906-1962, John Henry "Harry" 1907-1964,Sidney 1910-1986, Gerad or Gerard "Jerry" 1916-1951 and Gertrude "Trudy" Elizabeth 1919-1979. Jerry and Trudy were born in Toronto and the family lived on Edwin Avenue.

Nellie married Edgar Francis Walton on October 7, 1925 and I believe they had 5 children: Frank 1926-2009, Helen 1927-2008, Jean, George, and John "Jack" Walton 1934-1988. They lived on Ogden Ave. in Mississauga. My husband can remember going there as a child. Perhaps he met your Grandmother there.

Jack married Carol Anderson (1935-2006) and I believe they had 4 children: James, Judith, Joanne and John Jr.

I hope my research is accurate and is of some help to you.
