Am looking for the names of the parents of Wilf Spooner who was mayor of Timmins in the early 60's. he was also a member of parliament, minister of lands and forest. My father said he was his second cousin but I can't find his line.

Joseph Wilfred (Wilf) Spooner was a Canadian politician. He served as mayor of Timmins, Ontario from 1952 to 1955, and then represented the electoral district of Cochrane South in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1955 to 1967 as a member of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

A Google article says he died 2001 so his obituary may have his parents listed.
His full name was Joseph Wilfred Smith. He was 91 when he died which makes him born c 1910. Births are only released to 1912 and many of northern births were never recorded.

Found this re births
Joseph Spooner, b 11 Sept 1908, s/o Frederick Spooner [conductor on CNR] and Josephine Fountain, parents married 20 Nov 1899 in St Auburns Vermont USA, born Thunder Bay, registration # 047344.

I Googled him and one article says that he MAY have been a descendent of the family of Lazarus Spooner.
It only gives his age as 91, no parents given or birth date.

Thank you for the info. i googled him also and found 2 articles. One gave his birth date as Feb 8th 1810 in Massey. Found his birth info and his father was Delphis Cuillerier. This goes along with my father telling us he was his second cousin. The article also mentions he was married in 1930 and his wife's name was Gertrude. Have not been able to find any other info, or any children.
no obituary either.

For a well known man who did a lot of good for Northern Ontario, there seems to be very little info to be had.
