Wow! Finally there is a connection. I have researched John Cody for a while without making a definite connection to my family.
My great-grandparents, James Cody and Elizabeth Butler of Harbour Grace, had a son John Coady (Cody) who was born 27 Feb 1892. He seemed to have disappeared as there was no record of him in Harbour Grace and no one in the family really knew of his existence. John Cody had a few brothers and sisters, one of which was Raymond Coady, my grandfather.
I did find John Cody in the ancestry.com documentation but could never link him to my family for sure. Are you sure that this John Cody is the son of James Cody from Harbour Grace?
