Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for many years now. When my father didn't know the name of his grandfather I took it upon myself to research the family.

I research the following last names; Burt, Quinlan, Aylesworth (and the various spellings), Helmer, Tousignant (when the information isn't in French) among others. The memorials I have added are of my family and I am doing it so other family can connect with us.

Through research I have discovered connections to William Shatner, Abraham Lincoln and the founders of Brown University! I have found relatives in conflicts going back to the French and Indian Wars all the way up to Vietnam.

I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, I am a high school teacher, father and husband. Love sports, collect comic books and autographs.

If anyone wants to use a picture I've posted for a family tree or something PLEASE feel free to do so.

Franklin Randall at Royal Palm Progress
Just wanted to let you know that I am working on finding Franklin Randall. Thought I found him this morning but dates are wrong: Frank C Randall, b. 1856 d. 1926; also found a Claribel Randall. Are either relations? Will keep looking.

Okay, so they're not all Aylesworth / Aylsworth results... oops. But there are quite a few mentions. :)

Hi Gord,

I came across a page of 19th century obituary extractions from the Deseronto Tribune which will likely interest you. A search for "Ayl" returns 72 occurrences.

Hope it helps,

RE: Aylesworths and other pics
We were back down to the cemetery today and looked around the spot where Helen & Ella are but did not see any markers for Frank Randall 1869-1958. There are several empty spaces around the two gals, but didn't see Frank. I also checked at the library for Randalls in Riverside and didn't see his name, but that doesn't mean he's not there. Sexton records show for Randalls an Allen C., Ella Alysworth, Emma, Irene, Kela N. and Vance. Sorry couldn't locate him for you!
