Hi there:

I thought I would take advantage of the Valentine's Day free trial this weekend and was hoping someone, somewhere in Winchester could help me unlock further clues and/or possibly more information on my great grandfather, Charles Harry Brown. My great grandfather went by his second name, Harry.

I haven't had much success in locating his resting place, a Certificate of Death, nor an obituary. Though I managed to locate Census Records confirming his existence and a Certificate of Marriage to my great grandmother, Eula Genoe.

Charles Harry Brown was born September 13, 1898 and I'm unsure of his exact date or cause of death. His father is Howard J. Brown also from Winchester and his mother, is Annie May Brown (nee: Hitsman).

I've had more luck finding information on the Hitsman side of the family tree by fluke than on the Brown side and was hoping someone could fill in the blanks about Harry and/or his father Howard.

Seems all roads have lead to a dead end and I was hoping to breathe new life into my research efforts...

Harry was married to Eula Genoe and my grandmother shared with my mother before her passing they stayed married up until his passing.

My great grandmother, Eula was born in 1907 and passed in 1967 and is buried in Capital Memorial Gardens.

My great grandfather, Harry was either a labourer or machinist and was described as a decent man.

My father mentioned to me my grandfather, Lyle Roy Brown asked prior to his passing if my father would be willing to ttake him somewhere. My father seemed to think somewhere like Windsor or Wendover - thought he wasn't completely sure.

If you have any information you can provide - including any historical photographs, I would greatly appreciate your help and efforts!

Almost certainly Winchester!

I have a few Genoes here:

The Osgoode Museum at Vernon is worth a visit. But you can order copies of the info in their family files, too.

Thanks, Coleen, I was able to obtain my great, great, great grandfather's siblings and parents names.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to obtain an exact date of birth or death at this point yet. I have in my tree 10 Feb 1863 as his date of birth, in Carp, Ontario, and date of death as 1940 - nothing else.

Would you be able to provide a tool or resource that could confirm this exact information?

I did send an email to the Osgoode Museum, hopefully they will have some information on file for my ancestors.

P.S. What a great search tool you provided to find family, gives you more information to go off of.

Thanks again!
