Sarah Browne Ryan

I'd also like to update Sarah's birth and death dates and places. However, her memorial states a different birth year than her church baptism records. Not sure where the memorial date comes from but her head stone reads:

In memory of Sarah J Brown
Wife of Michael Ryan
Died Aug 2 1885
Aged 28 Yrs

Her church records state a birth of 9 Dec 1856.

If you agree let me know and I'll submit a change for the above.

Huclis, Herdis also
Other spellings of the Herdes surname are Herdis, Huclis in census records. Can find this family with the Hamiltons, Franks, and Sniders/Snyders in Spencer county, IN. Leonard and Minard are also names to search in Illinois. Please contact me we may be related.

Sarah Browne Ryan

I'd like to submit a name change for Sarah to Sarah Jane Brown Ryan. I have a picture on my Ancestry tree of her headstone and it does not have the name Brown spelled ending with an "e". Do you have an account? My tree name is The Bartell-Gomez Family Tree. I cannot send you the picture readily as I do not own it. County marriage and death records also spell the name "Brown".

Let me know how you wish me to proceed.

OK, works for me. I misspelled the town in Leeds, It should be Gananoque.

Elizabeth Anne Leavis Ryan

One more bit of data. Her death notice and obituary both have her dying on 28 April 1958 at age 93. This will lend credence to the 26 Jun 1864 birth date. You can see the death notice and obituary on my tree The Bartell-Gomez Family Tree on if you have an account. If not I can send it to you if you wish.

Elizabeth Anne Leavis Ryan

I located Elizabeth's baptismal records and it appears both her headstone/burial records (1866) and censuses (4 May 1865) are incorrect as it pertains to her birth date. She was born on 26 Jun 1864 on Howe Island. She was baptized on 30 Jul 1864 at St John's the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Ganaoque, Leeds, Ontario, Canada. You can view this record by using a search engine (i.e. Google) to find Ontario, Roman Catholic Church Records, 1760-1923 (this is on the LDS site Family Search) and following the choices to the above church and date.

I will re-submit the new birthdate for updating.

RE: Elizabeth Anne Leavis Ryan
So I assume the reason is the birth date? If so I'll send in a edit for the other information until you find an answer.

Noticed that you had to decline my changes to Elizabeth's memorial. Was it because of the birth year? If so is your information the headstone or some other information? Mine is the 1901 Census of Canada but sure could be incorrect. Just wondering and when answered I'd like to resubmit to correct the other information which I believe to be correct.

Vincent Johnson

Noticed you had to decline my change to Vincent's name from Vincent A Johnson to Andrew Vincent Johnson. Is your information from the headstone? Or perhaps some other document? Mine is from Frontenac county birth records. However I did see that in his spouse's obituary he is mentioned as Vincent Johnson. Just wondering.
