Cataraqui Cemetery
Good Evening Brant,
I'm hoping you would be willing to assist me in my research on ancestors whom are buried in Kingston, Ontario.
I've obtained the section & burial lot that they are buried in however have been unsuccessful to date to have anyone fill my photo request (Pending for a year now) I saw that you are a genealogist that deal with the Frontenac County and was hoping you may be able to assist. It doesn't look like there are many photo requests that get filled out of this cemetery.
Please email if possible a tfredeen @ (without the spaces of course)
Thank you,
Troy F
Calgary, Alberta

Asa (Casey) Pixley
Thank you for the candle on Uncle Casey's memorial. He was my mother's uncle. She tells of the day that he left for the war. She was a child, and he had said his goodbye to the adults. The children were playing by the creek that ran through the property. It was a bit of a walk...But, he came to them to say goodbye. The official story was that he died of peritonitus. One of my uncles met a man who was a POW with uncle Casey. He says Uncle Casey died on the forced march from the prison camp. The camp was probably liberated only a few days later.

RE: Trevor Casnaw
My information Meryl Vankoughnett is based entirely on secondary sources. All the family trees on Ancestry (4) that reference Meryl, have her with the name Audrey Meryl. On the balance of probabilities, I would lean toward considering Audrey and Meryl to be the same person. One of the family trees has Audrey Meryl married to Mr. Casnaw and a Mr. Pat Magee. However, another tree has her married to a Corkey which I find hard to believe. In the absence of a primary source, I would not say anything definitely. However, between you and me, there is some but not a lot of circumstantial evidence for the two husband theory.

Yes. Audrey was a daughter of Reta. According to animalgirl15, Putman Family Tree, on Ancestry, the second wife of Jack Casnaw was Barbara Clayton (? - 30 Jul 2004)

RE: Reta Vankoughnett
Hi Brant:

Reta May Lee Smith (August 18, 1908 - 1969) was married to Clarence Edward Manley Vancoughnett (17 Jan 1911 - 2 Sep 1993) who was the son of Edward Sanderson Vancoughnett (1882-1955) and Elizabeth Timmerman (1887-1941). I obtained this information from Roberta Poncho on Ancestry and it checks out against the documentation. For confirmation, please consult Ontario, Canada Births 1869-1913.

Kindest regards,

Steven Canvin

RE: Brownlee
Hi Brant, Maude was a younger sister of my Grandfather Robert Lawrence Brownlee.

Great Aunt Maude and Uncle Harry Harkness had a daughter Margaret, see below. Both Dickson and Margaret were born in Tsinan, province of Shantung, China, Harold was born in Cornwall, ON.

Kingston Burials:
Died May 2, 1942, Margaret Harkness 181 University Ave. to Cataraqui
Kingston Whig-Standard, May 6, 1987, 45 yearsago this week:
Margaret Harkness, 20- year-old daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Harold Harkness of Kingston, died as a result of injuries received in a two-car collision on Highway 7, 18 miles west of Perth. She was a student at Queen's University and was on her way to visit relatives at Elphin.

Perth Courier, May 7, 1942:
Kingston Woman Fatally Injured At Silver Lake
In Head-on Collision of Two Cars on Saturday Night; Inquest Here This Afternoon.
Miss Margaret Harkness, 23-year old daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Harold W. Harkness, of Kingston, died here Saturday night from injuries received in a head-on collision between two cars on No. 7 Highway at Silver Lake,18 miles west of here. The accident occurred shortly after 9 o'clock Saturday evening, and Miss Harkness, died at 10 o'clock as she was being admitted to the Great War Memorial Hospital.
Member of well known Perth district family, she was a daughter of Dr. Harkness, professor Queen's University, and Maude Brownlee, formerly of Elphin. She was enroute to Elphin to visit relatives over the week-end.
Miss Harkness was a passenger in the front seat of a car driven by Murray Matheson of McDonald's Corners, who is employed at Kingston.
In the rear seat was the owner of the car, Lawrence Balfour, of Elphin, a cousin of victim and Harold Harkness,14 year old brother of the young woman. The car met head-on with one owned and operated by Alfred Cox of Perth, whose wife and small daughter were passengers. Miss Harkness died from severe head and neck injuries when she was partly thrown through the windshield of the car. Dr. C. F. Cahill of Perth, was called to the scene and attended the occupants of the cars, Miss Harkness being immediately taken to Perth by Wilfred Wesley of Maberly. Although Murray Matheson received some cuts and bruises, all the other occupants or both cars escaped with a severe shaking up. Neither car left the highway after the collision, nor both were badly damaged. Dr. H. C. Hagyard coroner, immediately ordered an inquest.
A jury was impaneled and after viewing the body it was adjourned until Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock, to be held in the town hall here.
Members of the corner's jury are: N. E. Dodds, foreman; George Barr, Earl L. Darou, Arthur M. Johnston, and Dawson C. Kerr.
Constable P. R. Pollard, of the Ontario Provincial Police office here, assisted by Constable J. F. Rose, are investigating the accident.
Parents of the dead woman were notified of the fatality that night and immediately came to Perth. The body was taken to Kingston later.
Miss Harkness, whose parents reside at 181 University Avenue, Kingston, was a student at Queen's University. She was born 23 years ago at Tsinan, province of Shantung, China, where her father was a teacher at a university there. With her parents she returned to Canada 14 years ago, and for the past several years her father has been a professor at Queen's. In addition to her parents and younger brother, Harold, she is survived by one brother, Dixon, a graduate of Dalhousie University, and now employed in western Ontario.
