Are you still out there and looking? I am David's brother and did not realize he had been looking for information as well. I recently signed up with "Ancestry" and found both your messages. There is a definite possiblility there is a connection. I have a birth certificate of my mother Elizabeth for 1922, age 28,so plenty of room for a brother or cousin in 1924.Birth record also shows there was one child ealier as well. The odds of a related family living in Merritt is higher than unrelated Drybroughs having settled there independantly. I show connections to a William Drybrough and a Mrs. J Drybrough of Merrit. My grandfather was John Drybrough and mother's madien name Emma Johns. I would very much like to hear from you if possible.
