Heather, I dont know if this information will help you, but here it goes.

My grandfather, Alexander left Hamilton Ont. heading for Cleveland OH in about 1925. He left behind his wife Gertrude. and 5 children
Harry, Alex, Red, Jack, and Mary.
He was not heard of again until his death in 1960 or so.
At that time he was in Ashtabula OH.
He was a carpenter by trade.
Not much has ever been said about him to me and I find this facsinating.
Apparently he was a bit crooked!!

I do find the Ohio connection interestig...
from politicians to disk jockeys on payola!

similar types!

anyway, there you have it. Not much but maybe something to work with.

Regards,
Ted Finan
