Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many people have helped me so much, uncovering many of my family mysteries. I pay it forward, by helping as many other people out, where I can. If you choose to use any of my pictures...I only ask that you give credit for them, where they are posted.

I am a canadian who is researching my american born grandfather for the purpose of a book.

He was born Charles James Kreuzburg [various spellings]September 5th 1874. A year later Charles father passed away. His mother remarried Ignautz Kammer, thus my grandfather adopted the last name "Kammer" for the rest of his known life. [as per 1920 passport]

Note: I started doing research on my grandfather as my father knew very little about his father, as my father was only 4 years old when my grandfather left canada to go back to the usa.

During my research I uncovered my grandfather was a bigamist, having married at least five women. My grandfather was known to be of great wealth, thus making it easier to attract women. He was also a travelling Hardwood lumber salesman, having travelled parts of the eastern usa; Canada; and several ports in Central America.

I have finally found my grandfather's death certificate, which indicates he died June 7 1958 in New Orleans, La. He lived at least 15 years longer then the family first thought.

Anyone with information, can contact me. direct bloodlines to my grandfather. Kreuzburg [various spellings], Kammer, Kammeron, Baudendistel, Lavesque, Whitener, Seghorn and many other last names, which would be distant to my grandfather.

My information can be found at under the name "mycanadarocks"

It turns out I was 2 days off Turpin Asselstine's date of death, May 30 to June 2nd, and his wife was born in 1880, not in 1881 so I made that change. You posted the grave picture for Lena twice. I corrected my mistake about linking them as siblings instead of being married. I just pasted a number in the wrong line. Cheers....

Leavens family of Belleville
David Henry Leavens & Alice Maud Greatrix had 10 children including 2 sets of triplets - yes 2 of them, honestly. The first birth was a set of triplets who were all stillborn. The other set were the youngest Two of them died at about 11 months old. Only 4 children survived to adulthood.
"Clare" - Clarence Roswell Leavens, "Art" - David Arthur Leavens & "Walt" - Walter Thomas Leavens formed a company that's in the CAnadian Aviation Hall of Fame. Art went to St. Louis to learn to fly. It cost him $100. for 10 hrs. of instruction. His instructor was Charles Lindburgh. He bought a plane, flew it home & started barnstorming. Walt also loved flying. Clare was the business head. During the 2nd World War they operated a school to teach soldiers how to fly & never looked back.
Clare & Walt married 2 Mitchell sisters which is my connection. Art was killed in a plane crash when a wing fell of his plane.
This is a fascinating Rags to Riches story. Their company also donated a Waco plane to the Aviation Museum in Ottawa.
Our family followed their adventures with great interest & I grew up hearing about them. I was born & raised in Belleville.
This is all in my tree on Help yourself. I have pictures, & articles etc. about them.
It occurred to me that maybe some of the aviation info could be mentioned on Find A Grave & of course the rest of the siblings. If I can help just holler.
