I have been away from Ancestry for two years, and I thought once I reactivated my membership many unanswered questions regarding my great-grandfather would be finally answered and/or resolved through the World Deluxe membership. Unfortunately, I remain in a stand still.
My great-grandfather Charles Harry BROWN, was born 13 Sept 1898 to Howard Brown and Annie Hitsman. He married my great-grandmother Eula May Bell GENOE on 2 Oct 1926 in Carleton Place, Ontario. Together they had five children, Lyle Roy (b.1927), Sheila Anne Marie (b.1929), Raymond (b.1931), Winnifred (b.1933), and Sonia Fay (b.1938).
My mother tells me my grandfather, Lyle Roy, and granny, Gladys, shared with her my great-grandfather died at a young age and it was a heart attack.
Ancestry keeps bringing up public family trees citing 1935 as the date of death but my mother said he couldn't have died in 1935 since his last child was born in 1938.
I would like to know if anyone has the missing piece of the puzzle in regard to where an when my great-grandfather died and which cemetery he was laid to rest.
Sometime ago, I contacted Maple Ridge Cemetery in Winchester, Ontario and they have no record of my great-grandfather buried there.
My mother told me when my great-grandfather died, my grandfather Lyle Roy, had to drop out of school at the age of 9 (Grade 4 or 5) and go work to provide for the family in absence of my great-grandfather which may have explained some of the issues my grandfather had in raising his own family when he married my granny in May 1946.
I believe my great-grandfather may have passed in either Vernon, Winchester, or Carleton Place, Ontario between the years of 1938-1946.
Any information anyone could share would be most appreciated, since I have no idea when the next round of death certificates will be released publicly to Ancestry from the Register General of Ontario.
