Re: Arthur & Irene Playford, Canada

In Reply to: Arthur & Irene Playford, Canada by Kellie Stevens of 132

Hi Kellie,

I assume you are related to David Alan Hart Playford. My mother is Kay (nee Kathleen Mary Davies)VanDeventer. Her parents were William Davies and Annie Playford (Arthur's uncle & aunt).

When Arthur was little he stayed at the Davies farm in Manitoba for a while. My grandfather liked Arthur who was supposedly a little rascal. When Arthur was supposed to carry firewood to the house grandad caught him tossing some behind the bushes to avoid having to carry it. Another time when Arthur was supposed to be doing chores, grandad saw him on top of the barn walking the ridgepole.

I assume by your note you are looking for descendants of his first wife Ruby in Pasedena, California. I am not aware of any but can ask around some of the relatives.

I hope to hear from you. You can get my Email address by clicking on my name.

Below is some of the information I have on the Playfords.
