Thank you. I should have updated this Thread. I found the family and his name isn't John W. but Charles John. Took me a bit and waiting on some records to find this out.
I am now pursuing the line back further.
I have the Taggert/Tagert family figured out thanks to some connections to other researchers and I am writing for the vital records I need to "prove" out some connections.
Now I am working on another line of this family.
They seem to be settled around Niagara, Rochester and Syracuse.
Margaret Ledger (Maggie) married a Sol/Saul/Solomon Spencer - date and location unknown.
One known child: Ethel Ruby born 14 Feb 1906 (1904) possibly in NY or Ohio. Most of Ethel's records say she was born in Cleveland Ohio but no proof. Ethel was married twice - Stanley Kent 1925 Niagara Falls NY and later to Thomas Cudlack Rochester NY.
Possible siblings include:
William Spencer - Rochester NY
John O'Flaherty - Toronto
Mrs Madeline P. Harley - Niagara Falls NY
So I have been chasing these siblings of Ethels. I really suspect John O'Flaherty is full brother and other sibling are half siblings but it would be either way around.
I have posted the above to some other boards too.
Thank you for your time.
