James Francis Bohannan Family History
James Francis Bohannan was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 18, 1864 of Patrick Bohannan and Catherine Dalton.  
He was baptized on October 23rd, 1864 at St. Patrick’s church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  His sponsors were John M. Nally or McNally and Sarah Dalton.  
James was the father of
Francis Charles Bohannan, M.D., 
James Francis Bohannan, Jr., attorney and 
Harry Maurice Bohannan,DDS. 
His grandchildren are Harry Maurice Bohannan, Jr., 
Mary Carol Bohannan Pochebit and 
Francis Charles “Bo” Bohannan, Jr.
In the 1870 census (name was spelled Bohman), his father was listed as being in the liquor business and retired. His family consisted of his father Patrick Bohannan, his mother Kate (Catherine) Bohannan; a brother Morris Bohannan, age 13; a brother Patrick Bohannan, age 7; James Francis Bohannan, age 5; a brother John Bohannan, age 3, born November 9, 1866 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  John was baptized November 19, 1866 at St. Patrick’s Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania of Patrick Bohannan and Catherine Dalton.  His sponsors were Daniel Neel (?) Jarman(?) and Helena Murphy.  Joseph Bohannan, age 1, a brother was the last of the children in 1870.            

A 2nd Enumeration of the 1870 census shows Patrick, age 42, Margaret, age 18, Morris, 15, Patrick, age 9, James, age 7, John, age 5 and Frank, age 3.  Kate is not listed and this would indicate that perhaps she died between the dates of June 4, 1870, the date of the first Enumeration and the 18th day of November, 1870, the date of the 2nd Enumeration.  It is unknown who Frank is as the 2nd Enumeration does not additional information as to relationship to the head of the family.  Margaret is perhaps a niece of Patrick who had moved into the home to assist with the children.  
           
In the 1880 census James was living in New Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his grandmother, Mary Bohannan; an uncle, John Bohannan, age 35; James himself, age 14; John Bohannan, age 12; and a William Bohannan, age 6, born after 1870.  If we dare presume, William would be the son of John Bohannan.  There is no mention of Joseph Bohannan, age 1 in the 1870 census.  There is no mention of Margaret in this census.  
           
In January, 1921 a fire at the Commerce Building in Washington, D.C. destroyed most of the 1890 census records.  
What records that were not burned were damaged by water because stacks of the records were on the floor of the building.             
During the 1890’s, James married Anna Beatrice McDonald, probably in Ashland, Pennsylvania. The 1900 census indicates they had been married for 5 years.  Francis Charles Bohannan was born to James and Anna on November 15, 1895.  He was born in Ashland and a letter from F. C. McDonald written on the 27th day of November to J. F. Bohannan indicates Anna had returned home from Ashland, to West Virginia for the birth of Francis Charles Bohannan, referred to in the letter as Reuben, a common reference to a young boy.  
           
On April 22, 1898, James F. Bohannan, Jr. was born in Vivian, Virginia to James and Anna.  Census records indicate James F. Jr. was born in West Virginia.  The Kentucky Death Records indicate he was born in Vivian, Virginia.        
    
The 1900 census (the name was spelled J. T. Bohanon) shows James and Anna living in West Virginia and Harry Maurice Bohannan, their third son having been born on May 24, 1900 in Wise County, West Virginia.  James was listed as a salesman and from other records and documents he was working for a coal mining company.             
The following is from the articles published at the time of James F. Bohannan’s death:     
 “A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Bohannan went to West Virginia as a young man and opened for eastern interests one of the first and largest mines in the Pocahontas field.  He later moved to Virginia, then to Kentucky.             
Mr. Bohannan supervised the rescue work and directed removal of bodies following a mine explosion at Reno, Virginia, thirty years age.  
More than twenty were rescued, after an equal number had perished.”             
Mr. Bohannan was a member of the Knights of Columbus and an active supporter of the Democratic party in eastern Kentucky.”             

The 1910 census shows James and Anna Bohannan living in Norton East Ward, Wise County, Virginia.  The three boys, Frank, James, Jr. and Harry were residing with the family.  James was listed as being General Manager of the Norton Coal Co.             
In 1914 and 1916 he was named by Gov. H. C. Stuart of Virginia as a delegate to the American Mining Congress.             

The 1920 census (the name was spelled Bohoanan) shows James and Anna and the three boys living as boarders in Martin, Floyd County, Kentucky with James listed as a manager for a coal company.  Until approximately 1929 James was manager of Elkhorn Coal Corporation at Wayland, Kentucky.  When his health failed the family moved to Louisville, Kentucky.        

The 1930 census (the name was spelled Bohaman) shows James, Anna, Frank and J. F. Bohannan living in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.  James was listed as having no occupation.  Frank Bohannan was listed as a doctor and J. F. Bohannan was listed as a lawyer.  Harry was married and not living in the family home.             
James F. Bohannan died March 31, 1933 of uremia with contributory causes listed as chronic nephritis and arterio-sclerosis.  
He was survived by his wife, Anna B. Bohannan, Dr. Frank C. Bohannan, chief medical examiner for the Kentucky athletic board of control, Dr. Harry M. Bohannan and James F. Bohannan, Jr., and a grandchild (Harry M. Bohannan, Jr.).    
   
                Anna Beatrice McDonald Bohannan Family History             
Anna Beatrice McDonald was born on November 26, 1873 in Llewellyn, Pennsylvania to Frank McDonald and Mary Louise McAvoy.
Approximately 1895 Anna married James Francis Bohannan and they lived in West Virginia and Virginia.  
On November 25, 1895 she gave birth to her first son, Francis Charles Bohannan.  
There is a letter from her father, Francis C,. McDonald which gives the details of the birth and refers to Francis Charles Bohannan as Rueben, which was a common expression for young boys at that time.  
Anna had returned home to Ashland, Pennsylvania for the birth of the child.             
Anna then gave birth to James Francis Bohannan, Jr. on April 22, 1898 either in Vivian, Virginia or in Vivian, Wise County, West Virginia.  
A third son, Harry Maurice bohannan was born on May 24, 1900, Vivian, Wise County, West Virginia.             
The family moved to Kentucky and when James health declined they moved to Louisville, Kentucky into the house on Shawnee terrace.  Harry Maurice Bohannan, the youngest of the three boys, married about 1925, and moved from the family home.  
Frank Charles Bohannan and James Francis Bohannan, Jr. continued to live in the family home.             
On Wednesday morning at 7:30 a., June 3, 1931, Dr. Frank Charles Bohannan married Louise Sarah Salter.  
Anna Beatrice McDonald Bohannan did not approve of the marriage and to show her disapproval, upon the return of Dr. and Mrs. Frank C. Bohannan from their honeymoon, Anna refused to give them their wedding gifts and Frank and Louise never received those gifts from Anna.             
We don’t know a lot about Anna Beatrice McDonald Bohannan, as there was not a close relationship after the marriage of Frank and Louise and after Frank and Louise moved to New Mexico.  

We know from the census records that in 1900 there was a domestic servant by the name of Emily Anderson living in the home in Browns Creek, McDowell, West Virginia.             
At the time of her death Anna was survived by sisters and brothers, Mrs. Catherine Mayo, Norwich, Connecticut; Mrs. Mary L. Hughes, Ashland, Pennsylvania; John J. McDonald, Ashland, Pennsylvania and Harry A. McDonald, U. S. Navy, Chief radioman, Amagansett, Long Island         
            Dr. Frank C. Bohannan Family History
Francis Charles Bohannan, was born November 25, 1895 in Ashland, Pennsylvania to James Francis and Anna Beatrice McDonald.  
A copy of a letter dated November 27, 1895 from F. C. McDonald is attached.  F. C. McDonald is Frank McDonald the father of Anna Beatrice McDonald.  From the letter we can ascertain that Anna returned to Ashland, Pennsylvania from West Virginia for the birth of her first son.             
Frank lived with the family in Virginia and West Virginia until the time the family moved to Kentucky in the late 1920’s.  He attended college at Old Point Comfort in Virginia.  He attended medical school at the University of Louisville, graduating in 1919.             
During Frank’s school days he was an outstanding baseball player, a member of the national championship baseball team of the local Knights of Columbus in 1916, this while was in medical school.  While in college at Old Point comfort he gained wide renown as an amateur pitcher and in a game against Portsmouth, Virginia Academy he struck out 17 batters.        
Dr. Frank C. Bohannan served as alternate physician for the Kentucky State Boxing Commission and was then named chief physician by the State Boxing commission.  He handled ailing athletes over a period of years, including participants in every major sport.        
While in medical school Frank drove an ambulance for some period of time.             
On Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m., June 3, 1931, Dr. Frank married Louise Sarah Salter in Louisville, Kentucky at St. Columba Catholic Church.  Anna and James Bohannan, Dr.Frank’s parents did not approve of the marriage and refused to give the couple the wedding gifts that were being held at their home until the returned from their honeymoon.  The couple never did receive their gifts.             
Dr. Frank was also a well known stomach doctor in Louisville before moving to New Mexico.  Dr. Frank suffered with arthritis of the spine and moved to New Mexico for the drier climate.  After moving to Carlsbad, New Mexico, he served on the New Mexico Boxing commission where he helped write the state boxing laws.             
While living in Carlsbad, New Mexico, his mother died in 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky and he was unable to attend her funeral because there had been a terrible accident between a truck loaded with pipe and a potash bus carrying workers back to town after the shift change about 11:30 pm.  There were numerous severely injured and killed workers and all physicians from near and far were needed to attend to those workers.  The numbers that come to mind are somewhere near 25 to 30, many who lost limbs and had other serious injuries and some fatalities.              
He suffered from severe arthritis of the spine and the warmer weather in Carlsbad was somewhat of a relief although he continued to have physical problems with his spine.  He was a doctor during the time of house calls and getting into and out of automobiles was always a painful procedure for him.  When it became too difficult for him to continue with his regular practice he moved to Ft. Bliss in El Paso, Texas and was a civil service doctor for the army.             
Frank was team doctor for the Carlsbad High School football team, where Frank, Jr. played.  While at Ft. Bliss he was the team physician for the Falcon football and baseball teams.    During the summer of 1956 Frank developed pancreatic cancer and was not able to practice medicine again.  After months of illness he died at S. Francis Hospital in Carlsbad, New Mexico on November 20, 1956. Shortly after his death a plaque honoring Dr. Frank C. Bohannan was presented to Frank, Jr. honoring his father.  The plaque was placed in the NCO club at Ft. Bliss, Texas. 

Dr. Harry M. Bohannan, 48-year-old Greensburg dentist, drowned in Green River sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. A verdict of accidental death was given by Judge Pilson Smith, who held the hearing. The body was found Sunday morning by Dr. Bohannan's fishing companion, Elva Shorty Montgomery. He told officials that about 11 p. m. Dr. Bohannan told him to go on and take a nap, that he wanted to fish a while longer. Montgomery says he then went to sleep on the river bank, leaving the dentist sitting in the boat in his special, revolving chair. This chair was necessary as Dr. Bohannan was the victim several years ago of infantile paralysis.
The next morning, Montgomery continued, he awoke and discovered the boat empty. He found the body at what is known as Howell's Bottom on the Adkins farm. The two men had started fishing at Wells Ferry. Dr. Bohannan, who formerly practiced in Louisville, came to Greensburg in 1934 where he was associated with Dr. Helm. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the home with the Reverend J. W. Rayburn, pastor of the Glasgow Methodist Church, in charge. Burial was in the Greensburg cemetery. Dr. Bohannan is survived by a son, Harry M. Bohannan, Jr., and by two brothers, James F. Bohannan, Louisville and Dr. Frank C. Bohannan of Carlsbad, New Mexico. Pall bearers were Lee Cantrell, Russell Clark, Roscoe Wilcoxson, R. P. VanCleave, Bob T. Blakeman, and Walter Jones.

> > Hello Listers, A kind woman named Carolyn searched for the obits of Thomas and Ann Shea NIHAN and came up with three leads to the NIHAN family and one little Carmel NIHAN, age 4 (1901 Census), from St. Catharines. It appears Ann Shea NIHAN died on or near August 2, 1952. Herobit states she was survived by three daughters: Mrs. A.C. (Carmel)DAY of St. Catherines, Mrs. E.E. (Helen)WINTERS of Hamilton, and Mrs. Lawrence (Catherine) DAVIS of "this city". (I'm assuming"this city" is St.Catherines.) This leads me to ask does anyone know of these families? Are there living relatives to especially Carmel?  Living members might shed some light on the probability of a link to my family. Thank you for all the help in the past. This list has proven quite valuable to my research. Joe Nihen Pennsylvania

Dudley: "Dudo's meadow" or "dweller from the common ground" (Dudo wasa male name of Scandinavian origin, eg Dudo of St. Quentin was anhistorian who wrote The Norman History (Gesta Normannorum) in 1015AD.)
 Dudley appeared before a Court of Common Pleas at Orwigsburg, Schuylkill County, Pa on 25 July 1840 in order to beginhis naturalization process. He received his naturalization papers inSeptember 1851.
 Dudley is listed in the 1850 census as a gardener and in the 1860 census as a farm labourer.
 The 1871-72 Pottsville Directory lists Margaret as Dudley's widow.
A story told to my mother when she was a youngster was that MayMcAvoy, a silent screen star, was a cousin. I have contacted several McAvoy researchers whose families have similar stories. Ron McAvoy said that his family was from PA while May was born in New York.
Susan McAvoy wrote this in Dec. 2000:
In her biography it stated that May was born in Manhatten and her father and grandfather owned a livery. I looked up the census for new york and found a John McAvoy who had a livery. Unfortunately it was really only a directory so it did not list spouse or children. The two biographies I have read list Mayas having been born in either 1889 or 1901. So I don't know more than that,except that somewhere is supposed to be a letter from her to a member of the family. I don't know if I believe that and the whole connection is merely wishful thinking, although the facial features of eye shape and cheekbones could lead a bystander to suppose there is a resemblance. Also I am assuming that her given name may have not been May but that that was her middle name.Keep in touch if you find out anything. Susan

ST. PATRICKS GRAVEYARD INSCRIPTIONS, Kilkenny city, Co. Kilkenny,Ireland Erected by William McEvoy in memory of his father, Dudley McEvoy whodied23rd July, 1775, and his mother, Margaret McEvoy alias Walsh died 1784.Tracing Finn connections: my mother states that her mother's family was related to two priests named Finn. Initially, she thought that they were brothers but it is more likely that they were an uncle-nephew combination. My clues were that one was a well-known author of children stories to whom my mother wrote as a child. The other was the director of a well-known choir, which toured through out the States and possibly through Europe.
Francis James Finn, SJ, 1859-1928 was the author of boys' mystery stories with a Catholic theme.
William J. Finn, b Sept 7, 1881, possibly in Boston, MA, d. 1961, organized the Paulist Choristers of St. Paul the Apostle Church in NY.

Seeking connections between my family and two priests named FINN.
The earlier priest was a Jesuit named FRANCIS JAMES FINN (1859-1928) who wrote a series of mystery stories (extant) for boys. My mother was told that he was a cousin and recalled that they had exchanged letters just before he died.
The later priest was WILLIAM J. FINN (7 Sep 1881-1961) who founded the Paulist Choristers and directed the choir at St. Paul the Apostle Church, NY from 1906-1940.
Does anyone know the relationship between these two men and/or information on their ancestors?

McDONALD, MARY b: 1852 in Pennsylvania married a Breslin, probably lived in Frackville. 
Mother said that one of her daughters was "Cousin Nance" married John or Johns. Last known to be living in California around 1960. Nance was Anna. She lived in Ontario for awhile and worked as a secretary for a Mr. Carruthers in the pulp and paper industry, likely at Espanola, Ont., along with Aunt Katie and Laura McDonald. Nance later lived in Toronto and was present at the wedding of Charles Roddy and Laura McDonald. Her next-door neighbor was Minnie Lower who went wit N
ance to California and became a doctor (maybe a chiropractor).
(Another doctor with an unknown family connection was a woman surnamed Gay (may have been hyphenated) who came to visit the Roddys in the1930s.)
One of Nance's sisters married a Smith. One of the younger Smiths was called Phyllis, another was called Margaret. There were about eight more. Margaret and one her sisters became telephone operators.

Katie McDonald, Born: 1868, d. April 3, 1904 (Mrs. Catherine Mayo, Norwich, Connecticut;)
Katie. Aunt Katie married a man by the name of Joe Maheux who came from quite a scholarly Quebec family. They, i.e. he and aunt Katie, changed their name to Mayo as nobody could pronounce Maheux. They had only one child, a daughter called Celina. Celina is probably still alive, and has been in a nursing home in Mystic, Ct. as she broke her hip. She is about 97 or 98 years old now and never married. There is a sad tale about that.

Anna Beatrice McDonald was born on November 26, 1873 in Llewellyn, Pennsylvania
Annie. The second child married a man by the name of Jim Bohannan and lived for some years in Virginia. She was the only one of the seven children who grew up, that I never knew. As you know she had three sons, Frank who was very fond of my mother and who visited us in Toronto, Harry and the third was that Jim? more later. My mother visited her sister Annie and her husband Jim, in Virginia, when my mother was still in her teens (and had already lost both parents.) She was there when aunt Annie's first child was born and apparently assisted the doctor in a forceps delivery. (I don't know which son was the oldest.) After this, my mother went back to Pennsylvania. Somewhere, along the line, she met her first husband, Sam Kelly, who was a civil and mining engineer. He came from Virginia and they settled down in Tazewell County. So, somewhere in this muddle, uncle Jack apparently had some dealings with Jim Bohannan and also went to work for a mine. He was a very good person, even if he was a bit dumb, and tried to help the whole world out. By the time he died (killed in an automobile accident)he had given most of his money to the missions and the rest he left to those who needed it most.

Mame (Marian) McDonald: Born: 1874 Mame's name is given as Mary in the 1880 census. Mame (Marian?) Poor aunt Mame married a dope who managed to take a stroke at an early age and spent about 20 years in bed. They had tried in vain to have a child but never succeeded. She spent the last few years of her life with Uncle Jack in Ashland, Pa. (Married name Mrs. Jim Hughes.) 

Jack McDonald: Born: 1875 (John J. McDonald, Ashland, Pennsylvania)
Jack. You and I talked about Uncle Jack. I honestly don't think that the poor fellow was very smart. He started to study medicine but quit because he couldn't stand the dissecting room, so the story goes. When he married, he married a woman who was very cold and distant. He mistook her attitude for purity and shyness. She spent their wedding night wrapped in a blanket sitting on a chair. Their marriage was never consummated and after they parted, uncle Jack, as far as I know, lived in a hotel until he retired. My mother told me that she got uncle Jack his job as a draughtsman for a mining company. I imagine the story was a bit more complicated.  

Hattie (Harriet) G. McDonald: Born: 1876  I don't think that aunt Hattie had much of a life. She married a young druggist who had borrowed a lot of money to start his own drug store in Philadelphia. They had two sons, Frank and Jack and lost a baby girl. Just after she lost the child, her husband was crossing the street when he was run over and killed. Aunt Hattie was left in a terrible spot and had no way of looking after the children. She gave Jack to Aunt Katie who brought him up, and put Frank into a school for orphans (Girard College) in Philadelphia. Aunt Hattie went to work to support herself and when she was only in her forties she had gall bladder surgery. Something went wrong with the operation and she died. Her son Jack was killed in an automobile accident at age twentysix. Frank was very clever but I think he was a borderline manic depressive. He was a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer and eventually became the manager of the personal finances of the owner, J. David Stern. Frank married the women's editor of a New York paper. I think it was the Post. Frank and his wife who had no children are both dead. 

Frank McDonald: Born 1878 Died of typhoid fever. Father: FRANK C. McDONALD b: 14 JUN 1845 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania Mother: MARY LOUISE McAVOY b: 16 JUL 1849 in Pennsylvania. He died of typhoid fever as a child. He and aunt Mame both had it at the same time. She recovered but poor Frankie didn't. 

Laura McDonald, Born: January 30, 1883 in LLewellyn, Pennsylvania. (Mrs. Laura F. Roddy, Toronto, Ontario) Died 09 Apr 1936: of breast cancer
Lol (Laura). Laura was my mother. As I mentioned, she married Sam Kelly. At the time, she was only eighteen. He died when she was about twenty one or twenty two. They had one child, my (half) sister, Harriet Rachel (two names because of Virginian custom.) After her first husband died my mother came to Canada with my sister and stayed with Aunt Katie whose husband was working on a project up north in Espanola Ontario. When aunt Katie and her husband went back to the States my mother remained here and eventually married Charles Roddy and I was their only child. My mother died of breast cancer at fiftyone. My sister Harriet, graduated from the University of Toronto, where she took History and Literature. She became a high school teacher but at that time you could not teach high school in Toronto if you were a Catholic. The only Catholic ones were nuns. She wound up as my father's secretary because my parents did not want her to leave home for a teaching job. She married a chemical engineer called Wilfrid Macdonald. They had only one child, Duncan, who was born when both of them were past forty. Wilfrid's people had the unfortunate habit of dropping dead when their time came. Wilfrid, accordingly, dropped dead when he was about seventy but poor Duncan dropped dead at age thirty nine. 
My sister was not a bad sort, but she had never done anything for herself, so, when Wilfrid died she retired to a nursing home where she had people to wait on her. Duncan had never married, so when she died suddenly this past September at age + or 87, her branch of the family came to an end. My sister had inherited money from the Kellys in Virginia and she was always able to lead a pleasant life. She died from a sudden haemorrhage from a peptic ulcer that no one knew she had. I guess money and beauty are not a recipe for happiness.
I graduated from the University of Toronto also, but in Science. After I married and had eight kids, I went back and graduated in Medicine. I did research and took a Ph.D. because all the kids, except the oldest, who had married young, were still at home and I wanted regular hours. When the research money got worse, (it was always bad), I started to practise in northern Ontario (Kirkfield). Don't let anybody tell you that you can't make money in Canada, practising medicine. I made simply pots of money, but not for many years as I was pretty old when I got started and still had kids at high school and university. Because of me, the Canadian branch of the family will not die out for a while. My kids range in age from 54 down to 41. 
They are Sara, 2 kids C.R 2 kids., Butch 2kids, Mike 1kid, Irene 2kids, Joe 0kids, Robert 0kids and Intentionally left blank 7kids. 
Most of them are pretty smart and two of them are lawyers and 2 think more they are. There are 16 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. They, however are quite stupid.
My mother loved her family very much and when she was alive she tried to keep in touch with her brothers and sisters as much as possible. She always remained an American in spirit and we used to go to the States, often every week in the summer, even if it was just taking a boat across the lake to Niagara Falls or going on to Buffalo. I was sure that I had kept a copy of the bit of a family tree that I drew up for Mary Carol but it seems to have disappeared. 
I will try to figure it out again. Unfortunately, it does not go back very far and I do not even know what part of Ireland any of my mother's people came from. I was not too interested in family trees when I was young and now regret not asking my mother or aunts more about their people. We have found that when my mother and her siblings were born they were not yet registering births in that particular part of Pennsylvania. To find out more about them it might be possible either to go back through baptismal records or to go to a genealogist. 
Perhaps the fact that Annie McDonald Bohannan was my mother's sister will make things a bit more understandable. When I was speaking to you I mentioned that my father's family came from Belfast, were Protestants of the Orange Order and came to 
Canada to invest money. They were, however, not interested in higher education. On the other hand, my mother's people were 
discriminated against because of their religion, were poor and left Ireland for the States to escape persecution. They were all pretty smart and eventually racked up quite an assortment of diplomas and university degrees. However, they never seemed bent on accumulating wealth unless Frank is different! 
My grandfather (Frank's great grandfather ?) was born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1848 and his wife was born not far away from there in 1850. His name was Frank C. McDonald and her name was Mary Louise McAvoy. (I have no idea how McAvoy was spelt. 
It could have been McEvoy or any variant.) They had eleven children. The baby died at the age of six weeks. My mother said that she thought that he might have had pyloric stenosis. (There have been several cases in the family since.) Mary Louise died shortly afterwards. Three more of the boys died but seven of the children, five girls and two boys, grew up. Texie mentioned that you people have a computer program for family trees. My son Mike has one for this computer but it shows everything sideways. My daughter Irene said that she would get one from the university but as I have not seen it yet I will improvise. 
Geneology Notes from Dr. Lynette (Roddy) Sutherland April 23, 1994
Dear Texie and Frank Hearing from you was just terrific! I started to write this letter way back in the middle of March but lost a bit of time because I had a problem with my back. Actually, my back felt fine but my legs were sore and after having had a bunch of steroid shots, physio and acupuncture, things now seem to be getting back to normal. When I was practising medicine I wouldn't have touched an acupuncturist with a ten foot pole but it was finally any port in a storm. 
Well, I finally got around to writing and I said to myself "I'll just sit down and explain everything" and now I seem to be the confused one! I even phoned Mary Carol but she has not returned my call. Anyway, I will tell you about the McDonald side of the family, and between us we can figure out what's what.  
To get back to the rest of the Mcdonalds. Are you still with me? 
Do you know if any of the following diseases are cropping up in the family? 
Heart disease? Frank C. McDonald, the father of the eleven children died of coronary thrombosis at age fiftytwo. 
(My mother may have had a heart attack at age 45.) 
Gall bladder disease? In three generations on our side (fortunately curable!), 
Pyloric stenosis? 
Depression? 
You will probably not want to hear from me again. It is, however, interesting to see how things crop up in various branches of the family. I should mention a few people who were related, but I don't know how. Old Aunt Kate This somewhat disliked aunt brought up all the children of Frank and Mary Louise. Her name was Katherine Walsh, so she must have been a great aunt, but I don't know which side she came from. There were two priests who were related in some way and who were quite interesting. Their name was Finn. One was a writer of children's books which were very popular when I was a child. I used to write to him but unfortunately I never bothered to find out anything about him. The other Father Finn was a musician who directed a choir which I am pretty sure performed in Europe as well as the States. I don't think that many of the Mcdonald were musical. Only one of my kids can carry a tune but I do have a granddaughter who has a wonderful voice and plays several instruments. Unfortunately, she has no "get up and go". 
Another relative was May McAvoy (I don't know to spell it) who appeared with Al Jolson in "The Jazz Singer". She was supposed to have been a cousin. We are also supposed to be related to the Carrols of Cork, a noted family but I have my doubts about this. Well if you have not worn out your eyes reading this, perhaps you could let me know where you people are in this saga. Maybe you could draw a diagram starting with Annie McDonald and Jim Bohannan? 
Here are a few interesting things about my grandfather Frank C. McDonald. Frank was bilingual in German and English. Where he learned German I do not know. He was the first in the family that I know of, to go to medical School if there was a medical school then. His father died when he was studying medicine and he thought he was too much of a drain on the family so he became a school teacher. He later became a superintendent of schools. With the children coming along, he needed a better job. His next and final job was that of District and Land Agent for the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company. He had an office in Ashland but had to go to the main office in Philadelphia quite frequently. When he left home he would take a couple of carrier pigeons with him. On reaching the hotel, he would send one off to let the family know that he had arrived safely. On leaving he would send the other one to tell them when to pick him up at the station. It sounds a bit primitive but must have been quite good compared to modern post! He must have felt very badly, having to bury four of his sons. He was very uptodate for his time and lived only for his children something he had promised his wife before she died. 
Well, that's one part of the family. I would be thrilled if you would tell me about aunt Annie's descendants. I will keep looking for any pictures that I have left. I sent a couple of pictures of Frank, taken in Toronto when he was visiting, to Mary Carol i.e. aunt Annie's Frank. There is such a mess of pictures here! Some more are bound to turn up and I will send them along. 
With love and best wishes from 
Lynette Sutherland 

----------------June 5, 1995 Secretary, Church of Saint Patrick 319 Mahantongo Street Pottsville, Pennsylvania 17901 
Thank you very much indeed for your reply to my telephone call and the enclosures that you sent. I am collecting documents to 
establish my claim to American citizenship, as this citizenship will be of considerable benefit to my family. 
Some years ago, on two occasions, both during late winter, I visited St. Joseph's Cemetery in Ashland where my grandparents and seven of their eleven children are buried. It was pretty cold and I could not stay as long as I wished but the marriage certificate which you located seems to be that of my grandparents. My grandfather's name was Frank C. McDonald and although I do not remember the date of his death, the date of death of his wife Mary (or Mary Louise) was 1889. My grandfather was born in Pottsville, and certainly married there. However, he spent most of his working life in Ashland where he raised most of his family. 
Here is the puzzle as I mentioned to you. I do not know where the family went after the parents married. My grandfather was a school teacher and then became a superintendent of schools. My mother, Laura Frances McDonald, who was the seventh child told me that she was born in LLewellyn, Pennsylvania. on January 30, 1883. As four more children were born after her and her mother died in 1889, I wonder if she took a few years off her age! Also at this time births were not being registered by the government. I note that on one of the enclosures you sent me Mary McDonald's name was listed as McAvoy and on the other one as McAvoy. This is really not all that important but it is nice to 
know where you came from. I do not know even in what part of ireland the family originated. My grandmother was sick a great deal and did not reach her thirtyninth birthday, dying not long after the birth and death of the last baby. The children were brought up by an old aunt whose name was Kate Walsh. I wonder if she could have been a great aunt or perhaps a cousin, but she was always referred to as Aunt Kate. 
My grandfather who did not make much money as a school teacher became the District and Land Agent for the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company with an office in Ashland. This was better financially but he died in his fifties when the youngest living child was only about fifteen. When I spoke to you, you gave me the number of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Minersville where children from the outlying places were baptized. I telephoned the church and the Monsignor answered the phone. He was quite interested and said that he would see what he could find. Of the eleven children only four had children and only two had grandchildren, so you see that there is nobody who can help. I have done my bit keeping the family going (eight kids, fifteen grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren). My mother who died when I was eighteen, was a widow who married my father during a visit to Canada and I have never met even the few American second cousins who are left. If the Monsignor cannot come up with anything, would you suggest that I get a lawyer in Minersville or a genealogist to check further? We have already consulted a lawyer in the States but we have heard nothing from him. I would love to go down myself but am still recovering from back surgery. (I will let you know what I find out.) I will make copies of the short questionnaires you sent and send them back. Thank you again for all the trouble you went to beyond the call of duty. I enclose a small offering. I am afraid it will become even smaller when the exchange and charges come off, but it's from the heart. Sincerely yours Lynette Sutherland, M.D. --------------June 20, 1995 Rev. Msgr. John M. Campbell Church of St. Vincent de Paul 539 Sunbury Street, Minersville, PA 17954 
Dear Monsignor Thank you so very much for sending me my mother's Baptismal Certificate. As I probably mentioned to you I needed it to establish my claim to American citizenship, something that my children think will be of considerable benefit to the family. One of my sons had written previously to a number of places including the Schuylkill County Courthouse with regard to her birth registration but was told that in 1885 they were not yet registering births.
I had also telephoned St. Patrick's Church in Pottsville where my grandfather, Francis McDonald, was born. They told me that they had a Baptismal record of a Mary McAvoy and a Marriage record of a Francis McDonald and a Mary McEvoy but neither sounded right to me. They, however, had no record of my mother, Laura McDonald, but suggested that I call you. 
The Baptismal Certificate that you sent is certainly correct. It has the right names and the right dates and to clinch it, the name of the sponsor, Dudley McAvoy, was the name of my grandmother's favourite brother. 
I probably told you that I have been to St. Joseph's Cemetery in Ashland twice. My grandparents are buried there with seven of their eleven children (including four little boys) buried around them. My grandmother was only thirtyeight when she died. Only two of the children established families that were viable. I have eight children, fifteen grandchildren and now the greatª grand children are starting to arrive. The second oldest in the family, Annie, had three sons and quite a number of grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. My mother had been a widow for many years when she met my father while visiting Canada, so I am sort of an in between generations person. 
Thank you again for all your trouble. I enclose a small offering. Sincerely yours Lynette Sutherland,M.D. 
---------- July 23, 1995 Mr. Mark Major 708 N. Norwegian St.Pottsville, PA 17901 
Dear Mr. Major I started this letter to you about a month ago but never got it finished because I am having a rather protracted recovery from back surgery. 
Ms. Ruth Spece was kind enough to give me your name when I told her that I was searching for evidence that my mother was born in Pennsylvania. I needed this to apply for American citizenship, not that I intend to move to the States permanently, but to become a dual citizen  Canadian and American. She also suggested my calling Monsignor Campbell of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Minersville. 
My mother was born in 1885, in either LLewellyn or Minersville but at that time they were not keeping birth records. Well, as Ms.Spece suggested, I telephoned Monsignor Campbell who was very interested and who told me that he would write me and let me know whether he could find her Baptismal record or not. Then, a few days later the Baptismal Certificate simply appeared in the mail! It was after this that I received Ms. Spece's letter with your name and address. (Sorry if this sounds complicated.) When I talked to my children about the search we decided that it might be a good idea to find out a bit more about the family. So I thought that I would write you, send you what little data I have and ask for an approximation of your charges. I would at least like to know what part of Ireland most of my mother's people came from and of course anything interesting you might come across along the way. Perhaps I should start with what little I do know about my mother's family. My mother was the seventh of eleven children who were called Katie, Annie, Mame (Mary), Jack, Hattie (Harriet), Frankie, Lol (Laura, my mother), Willie, Charlie, Harry and James. 
The family plot is in St. Joseph's Cemetery in Ashland and my grandparents and seven of the eleven children are buried there. My grandfather was Frank C. McDonald and my grandmother was Mary Louise McAvoy. Four of the children buried there died as small children. They were Frankie, Willie, Charlie and James. The other three, buried much later were Mame, Jack and Hattie. 
Re Mame, Jack and Hattie Mame was the only one of the family who married a local person but even they moved away. Mame married a man by the name of Jim Hughes and both are buried there. The family disapproved of Hughes because he drank. I think that he was a plumber who seemed quite popular but who was not really a good husband. He became paralysed at an early age and spent many years in bed. They had no children. Jack, who went to Virginia and was also childless went back to Ashland when he retired and was joined by Mame after her husband died. So there were two of them living in Ashland in the late 1940's. Besides Hattie, one of her sons who was killed in an accident is also buried there. 
The dates for Frank C. McDonald, my grandfather, are given as 1845  1904 and for Mary L. McDonald my grandmother, as 1850  
1889. The larger monument on the plot was erected by the children after the father died and it commemorated the four little boys as well. I do not know if they got all the dates correct. 
Going back from there, when my grandfather died suddenly from a heart attack, he was the district and land agent for a large company  I don't know if it still exists. It was called the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company and my grandfather 
had to report to the Philadelphia office. Before that he was a superintendent of schools and my mother told me that when she was born they were living in Llewellyn. Before this he was a teacher and before this I have been told that he was a medical 
student but had to give it up because of the death of his father. My grandmother, Mary McAvoy McDonald, died not long after the death of the eleventh child and so left ten young children behind. A relative known as "Aunt Kate" then joined the family to help bring up the children. She was some sort of Aunt but I don't know how she fits in because her name was Walsh and I know of no other relatives by the name of Walsh. She had never married so it was not a married name. 
Except for odds and ends and a number of stories, both funny and sad, this is all I really know about the family. 
My grandfather was said to have been born in Pottsville, but my mother often mentioned visiting Frackville. There were cousins there, first (?) or second and I think that their name was Breslin. (sounds more Jewish than Irish!) I think that Breslin may have been a supervisor in a mine. I also think that he had one daughter Mame who married a Smith and had a large family and daughter who became a Mrs. John or Johns. Her name was Anna and I believe she lost her husband at a young age and had no children. He was a sea captain. She lived in Toronto for several years but moved to California. 
The first family member to come to the U.S. from Ireland was described as an old aunt  whose aunt she was I do not know. One 
of her friends who had left Ireland previously and was working as a domestic servant found her a place as well. I do not know if she worked in New York or Philadelphia. She then started to bring out the rest of her family and I imagine the men became coal miners. I do not even know which side she was on but think that it was on the McDonald side. 
I know almost nothing about the McAvoys. My grandmother's favourite brother was called Dudley and his name is on my mother's 
Baptismal Certificate. My aunt Mame whom I often suspected of making things up told me two odd stories. One was that another of the McAvoy brothers worked for a company that made locomotives. He was asked to make delivery of a locomotive out west somewhere. He started out but was never seen again. I don't know what happened to the locomotive. As a child I had some friends who came from Cork in Ireland and among them was a boy by the name of Brady Carrol. 
The Brady Carrols were a prominent Cork family and Aunt Mame claimed that the 'Carrols (Carrolls?) were close 
relatives. I doubt this. I think that the McAvoys and McDonalds were poor Catholics who came to America for a better life. 
There are only a few other odds and ends. My mother said that we were related to a family by the name of Finn. In this family 
there were two well known priests. One was a writer of children's books with whom I corresponded as a child and the other was the leader of a choir that performed in both the United States and Europe. I have no idea where they came in. Oh! Aunt Mame also said that May McAvoy (spelling unknown) who appeared in the "Jazz Singer" opposite Al Jolson was also a cousin! 
That is absolutely all that I have ever heard about the family from my relatives. It wasn't that they did not want to talk about them. They just didn't seem to be interested. 
I am enclosing copies of some records which may be of some use to you. You will note that my mother's Baptismal Certificate does not give a town or city of birth and that Dudley McAvoy is a sponsor. I do not know who Josephine Becker was. 
Enclosed are also two short records from St. Patrick's Church in Pottsville. Record 188 concerns the marriage of Francis 
McDonald and Mary McEvoy in 1871. McEvoy is spelled with an E. However, I don't think that people were very careful about spelling then. As to the witnesses, I have heard the name Brennan or Brenan mentioned but not as being related, and I suppose Margaret McEvoy could have been the bride's sister. What puzzles me is the remark DISPENSATION. I am sure both families were devout Catholics. 
The second record, 415, a baptismal entry, also is a puzzler. Mary McAvoy is the right name but the date of birth does not 
correspond with the date of birth on the tombstone; 1849 on the record and 1850 on the tombstone. Her father is listed as Dulio McAvoy. I have heard some queer names but never anything like Dulio. Is that a Pennsylvania name? One of my children suggested that it could be Julio. My mother had a sister who was supposed to look like a Spanish beauty, so maybe Julio represents the Spanish connection(!) 
I have heard none of the other names on this record, neither the mother's nor the sponsors' yet it still might be my 
grandmother. I guess this gives you very little to go on. The older members of the family are all gone now and only second cousins and, of course, my own family are left. There is only one other thing that I can say and that is that most of the children grew up and went to school in Ashland and to them it was the home town to which they expected to return to die and be buried. 
I think that although these people started out as poor immigrants they must have been pretty smart as there are a number 
of doctors, lawyers, dentists and university staff among their descendants. 
This is about the longest letter that I have ever written. If you are acquainted with the various families of the area, you may have picked up a clue from what I have written as to where my long suffering ancestors came from. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely yours Lynette Sutherland, M.D

RODDY, BARNARD b: CA 1790 in Edingosh, Monaghan, Ireland 
Barnard was one of the first of the Roddy family to come to Canada but it uncertain whether he settled first at Little York,now Toronto or at Niagara-on-the-Lake.
 We believe that he was already married and had at least one child by the time he emigrated. A reproduction of an 1817 map of Niagara-on-the-Lake described Roddy's Hotel on Victoria Street, but I am not certain whether this referred to an hotel that existed in 1817 or to a much later landmark. The building was demolished in the late 1800s.
 In Little York (Toronto), in the 1820s, Barnard owned and operated Roddy's Tavern which was located on the west side of Church Street, just below King.
 In 1823, Barnard is listed as a sponsor at a baptism in St.James Cathedral. His tavern was mentioned in 1827 and, in the election of 1830, he is described as a tavern-keeper. He does not appear in the Toronto directory for 1836. St. Mark's Church, at Niagara-on-the-Lake, has a record of his daughter's baptism in 1834.So, it is likely that Barnard moved his family there around 1833.
Barnard married twice (as far as I know) and seems to have produced children over a long span of time. I do not know all of their names.
Information on Bernard Roddy, provided by Paul Hutchinson, June 2000:
 The Roddy name is familiar to me because I've seen it many times in documents. For example, Bernard Roddy was a constable in Niagara, and it  seems to me that quite a few records relating to his work as constable exist in RG 22, Series 372, at the Archives of Ontario. I'm going through all of the documents as I'm working on a project, and I've seen BR's name(and signature) fairly often.
Additional notes from Paul Hutchinson, June 2000:
I don't have dates of birth or death regarding the Bernard Roddy I've been coming across in RG 22, Series 372, but here is a list of three documents of which I've made notes (others exist):25-2-52 account of Bernard Roddy re Aaron Seeley, Niagara Gaol 44-1-14 account of Bernard Roddy for tasks including arrest of Ferris Cudney
55-37 long letter of E.C. Campbell re Col. Elliott and the behaviour of Bernard Roddy toward him and the men of his regiment; letter from Wm. Kingsmill re the same
In the above ID numbers, the order is box-file folder-document; where there are only two parts to the number, no individual document numbers exist for the document in that folder. The earliest of the above three documents is from 1836. I'm sure that the Roddy referred to in these and other documents is always called "Bernard." He may well be a son of your Barnard Roddy.Perhaps, no connection:

RODDY, CHARLES b: CA 1750 in County Monaghan, Ireland Charles was Church Warden at Clones in 1792.
The following are records found at the FamilySearch.com Website aftera search using common Roddy names. Only records linked to Clones,Monaghan were copied since Clones is known to have been the family's hometown. I am assuming that these persons were related. Most Roddys originated in Rosscommon and the name is very unusual in Monaghan.

•Burial: 1862 St. James Cemetery, Toronto 
•Note: Description: Roddy Family Plot, Lots 12 and 14, section R. Quality: 0 
•Note: 
Probably came to Canada after his brother Barnard and parents. Charles and his family came aboard "The Europe". Although the date of their immigration is not known, their trip apparently was the last voyage for "The Europe".
 Charles began his working life in Toronto as a labourer and carter. As a carter, one of his most important functions was in transporting water, both to private houses (the townwell was in the St. Lawrence Market) and to fires.
 In the 1840s, Charles became a bailiff of the United Counties of York and Peel. He retained this position until his death and, in fact, his job was a contributing factor in his death. Late in November of 1862, Charles was sent to Orillia to escort a prisoner back to Toronto. The trip by horse and sleigh took several days to travel in either direction. When he returned from the trip, he developed pneumonia and died two weeks later. He is buried in St.James Cemetery (Toronto) in the Roddy family plot (Lots 12 and 14,section R) but his name is not engraved on the tombstone.

 Charles' Will:

And I expressly direct that on the decease of my said wife, Jane Roddy, or in the event of her marrying again, that the said estate above devised be sold by Public Auction or Private Sale as to my executrix and executor may seem fit, and the proceeds thereof to be equally divided among my children: Sarah Jane, Elizabeth, John,Thomas, Robert and Charles.

James W. Severs of the City of Toronto, Gentleman

 The Toronto directory for 1846-7 gives Charles Roddy's address as 29 March Street. March was renamed Stanley Street and currently is called Lombard Street.

Notes on burials in the family plot:
According to the St. James Cemetery records, these plots were owned by brothers Thomas and Charles Roddy. The first burial (1847) was that of an infant, Margaret (Maggie) Roddy, daughter of Charles and Jane Thompson Roddy. This was followed in 1850 with the burials of John Roddy, the younger, Charles' brother and of Mary A. Roddy whose relationship remains unknown. (She was not John the younger's wife.) None of these persons is named on the tombstone.
In 1856, Charles Mills, aged two years, was interred there, followed,in 1859, by James Mills, aged 10 years, nine months who most likely was his brother. They were joined, in 1860 by James Mills, aged 49 years, six months, whom I believe to have been their father. My theory is that James Sr. was married to one of Charles Roddy's sisters. None of these persons is named on the tombstone.
Charles Roddy himself was buried there in 1862, followed by his daughter, Sarah Jane (1866), sons Thomas (1878) and Robert (1885) and finally by his wife, Jane Thompson (1889). Neither Charles nor hiswife, Jane are memorialized on the tombstone.
The next burial did not occur until 80 years after Jane Thompson's death. Her grandson, Charles Thompson Roddy was buried there in 1969.Seven years later (1976), CT Roddy's grandson, Robert Francis Sutherland was interred there, followed by Robert's father, James Walter Sutherland in 1988.

RODDY, CHARLES b: OCT 1846 in Toronto, Ontario d: 02 JAN 1920 in Toronto, Ontario"For forty years the name of Roddy has been identified with the printing business in Toronto, taking a leading position from the beginning. Charles Roddy, the founder and for many years the head of the business, was born in Toronto in 1846 and died in Toronto,January 2, 1921. Receiving a practical education in the old Grammar School, he entered the world of industry as a young man, serving an apprenticeship with his brother, William Roddy, at the printer's trade. This trade he followed as a journeyman until 1882, and in that year established himself in business under his own name, doing a general line of job printing and also book printing. The business has been carried forward along the same general lines throughout its history, and as his sons became of age Mr. Roddy taught them the business, later receiving them into the concern. Until his death, Charles Roddy retained the active management, but the business has since been conducted by his sons. Charles Roddy married Catherine Welsh, and they were the parents of four sons and one daughter:Charles T., Robert E., Frederick, Reginald R., and Edith Annie.
 Charles T. Roddy was born in Toronto in 1871, and received his education in the public schools of the city. Serving a regular apprenticeship to the printer's trade under his father, he has always been associated with the business, and is now active in its management. He is president of the Thirteen Club, and finds his favourite reacreative interest in music.
 Robert E. Roddy was born in Toronto, July 13, 1873, and was educated in the public schools and business college. He has also been associated with the business since leaving school, and is still amember of the firm. His chief recreation is motoring, and he is a member of the Ontario Motor League.
 Frederick Roddy was born November 3, 1886, and attended the public schools and business college. He has been associated withthe firm since 1913.
 Reginald R. Roddy was born in Toronto, October 14, 1893,and was educated in the public schools and the Jarvis StreetCollegiate Institute, of which he is a graduate. His first businessposition was in the capacity of cost accountant with the Steel andRadiation Company, Ltd., where he remained for three years. In 1917 he enlisted in the Cobourg Heavy Battery and went overseas. He was transferred there to the 4th Trench Mortars, and served until some months after the armistice, returning home in 1919, and entering the firm of Charles Roddy & Sons, of which he is now a member.
 Located at No. 46 Lonbard street, in Toronto, the concernis doing a large business along the same lines which it has always followed, employs twelve people, and holds membership in the Toronto Typothetae."
Quoted from: "The Municipality of Toronto, Canada, A History",printed in 1923.
 According to Harriet Macdonald, daughter of Charles Thompson Roddy's second wife, her "grandfather" Charles "always went to Nassau every winter. In spite of all his drinking, he had a good business." She also said that "Dad's father made money. He was a polite, nice gentleman who didn't look like a drunk. He died of hardening of the arteries at age 75 but Dad said that drink killed him." The business broke up because Charles Thompson Roddy objected to his brother Bill's smoking habit.

This is a puzzling entry since the census appears to have missed Elizabeth Roddy (Aunt Lizzie) who was born in 1837 and would have been 44 years old in 1881.

RODDY, ELIZABETH b: 16 MAR 1837 in Toronto, Ontario d: 15 MAR 1935 in Toronto, Ontario 
Elizabeth Roddy lived with her nephew, Charles Thompson Roddy and his family. In her old age, her birthdays were reported in the Toronto newspapers...she was the city's oldest living native. She died several days after a fall and is buried in Mount Pleasant cemetery along with Charles' two wives, Alice Lough and Laura McDonald. The grave is only blocks away from their former home at 158 St. Clair Ave. E.
 The Evening Telegram of March 16, 1935 carried a photograph and this caption: "Nonagenarian Dead. Miss Elizabeth Roddy, believed to have been the oldest native-born citizen of Toronto, died last night at the residence of her nephew, 158 St. Clair avenue east. She would have celebrated her 97th birthday to-day."
Another carried a photo, captioned, "Toronto's Oldest Citizen Passes"
Under the photo, "MISS ELIZABETH RODDY. who was born in Toronto in 1837 shortly after the Mackenzie Rebellion and had spent her whole life here, died last night on the eve of her 97th birthday. She was of Irish ancestry and a sister of a former city clerk."
another story read:  "WOMAN BORN IN 1837/ DIES FROM ACCIDENT Mrs. Roddy Saw Light of Day in Year of MacKenzie Rebellion"
Born in Toronto on Lombard St., then a high class residential district, March 16, 1837, less than four years after the incorporation of the city and the year of the Mackenzie rebellion, Miss Elizabeth Roddy, 158 St. Clair Ave. E., oldest native-born citizen of Toronto,died last night on the eve of her 97th birthday. She had met with as light accident on Sunday last, which caused her to lapse into unconsciousness, from which she never rallied. 
Of Irish ancestry, Miss Roddy had a wonderful fund of knowledge of early days and people and until her accident was in possession of allher faculties and could read without glasses. Her brother, Robert Roddy, was a former city clerk, who held that position at the time of the semi-centennial celebration in 1884.
A life-long Anglican, she had the distinction of being baptized by Bishop Strachan, the first ecclesiastical ruler of Toronto and the founder of Trinity College. She was one of the first customers in the late Timothy Eaton's original store and attended the foundation and dedication of many of the older churches. The last survivor of her generation, she was one of the oldest members of the Church of the Redeemer. Her nephew, Charles T. Roddy is the chief survivor."

RODDY, ELIZABETH EVA b: CA 1866 in Toronto, Ontario d: 05 AUG 1868 in Atlantic Ocean, USA 
 Elizabeth Eva was named after Little Eva, the heroine in"Uncle Tom's Cabin". According to family tradition, William Roddy's family were friends of Harriet Beecher Stowe. Elizabeth Eva was said to have died aboard a ship heading northward along the USA coast....in the arms of Harriet Beecher Stowe. The death notice, however,makes no mention of the place of her death.

RODDY, HELENA MAUD b: 15 FEB 1878 d: 20 JAN 1951 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
Most of my information about Maud Davis (she was known tomy late grandmother as "Aunt Maud", not "Aunt Helena") comes from hergrave marker in Victoria Lawn, St.Catharines.
This stone commemorates John Davis / June 30, 1874- Oct.21, 1941/ HisWife/ Helena Maud Roddy/ Feb.15, 1878-Jan.20, 1951/
Also their children:
Frederick, 1899-1957, John Bernard (1901-1903), Lillian (1905-1906), &Lida (b-d.1910).
 There were also four other children: Lawrence Davis,Muriel, Bernice, & Doris. I think Muriel (Taylor) and Bernice (Mrs.Cyril Dillon) are still living.
Doris Davis married into the Welsh family of St.Catharines. She died very young of cancer, leaving two small children. Her husband, Thomas Welsh, remarried. He died on May 9 of this year (a second cousin cu tit out of the paper for me).
 To take all this back to the Roddy's, I believe Maud had at least one sister, though her name escapes me.

Also from Tim Lowrey, August, 2000:
Found the following tombstones in Victoria Lawn, St.Catharines. Youmay
want to add these to your files:
1) Doris M. Davis/ Beloved Wife Of/ Thomas J. Welsh/ And Mother of/Tom
and Joy/ Oct.17, 1914-Aug.22, 1951.
[This is the daughter of John Davis & Helena Maud Roddy.)
2) In Memoriam/ Catharine Jane/ Wife of Joseph B. Roddy/ 1850-1901/"The
Gift of God is Eternal Life"/ Joseph B. Roddy/ 1847-1920
[These must be Maud's parents.]
Here are some very rough notes on the Davis family from my mother,Lynette Roddy who now is 83-years-old. Since I have pleaded with her to write down everything that she remembers about her family, without success, I wrote this as she spoke, June 11, 2000.
Mrs. Davis (Helena Maud Roddy) was very intelligent. When shefinished school, the school-master cried because she was the smartestin the school but was a girl. This was considered a uselesscombination in those days.
Mrs. Davis came from a very snooty family who disapproved of Davissince he was "only" a carpenter. She married him despite her family'sobjections. Davis came from a very gregarious, very sociable family.With her brains and his personality, they went into business. Theystarted Davis Lumber Company, then expanded into construction, in St.Catharines, Ontario.
When I first met Mrs. Davis, there were five surviving children. Theeldest daughter married a farmer and was reported to have had a lot ofkids (I think that there might have been 10 but I never met her anddon't remember her name. ( I guess this is Muriel Taylor, whom TimLowrey named.)
Next was Bernice, then Doris. They were very sophisticated and wereeducated at the Ontario Ladies College at Whitby. Bernice married aman named Dillon, who owned a big shoe store. She had one daughter.
Doris married Welsh. His family was in wholesale grocery business.They had a son and daughter.
Doris and Bernice lived side-by-side in Glenridge (a posh part of St.Catharines) in houses that their parents had built through their construction company.
One of the sons was called Fred. He was everything that a family could desire in a son. He was a perfect in every way. He was being groomed to take over the family business. Then, in a great great tragedy, he was stricken with equine encephalitis. When he recovered,he had Parkinson's disease on one side which practically divided hisbody in half, including half of his vocal chords. He had a terrible time talking. Fred had a driver's license before his illness and didnot give it up, driving with one hand. He was forced to stay at home with his mother, since he was constantly on medication. In his 50s or60s, he went to the States (California, I think) for surgery(??) to his brain to try to stop the tremor. The treatment was not successful but I believe that he was happy, despite his ruined life.
Lawrie, another son, was given the business but Mrs. Davis retained astrong interest in the company, directing it.
Doris had some moles on her back and went to the States to have them burned off. The doctors said that they became cancerous but must have been so to start. She had malignant melanoma. She died, perhaps,before age 40. When she was in the hospital, just before her death,her mother bent over her and suffered a stroke. Fred also was in thehospital at the same time.
When the father (John Davis) was still alive and I was about 12 (ca1930), they invited me and my sister to their summer home atSouthampton. We had a good time and there were at least 12 guests there. The Davises were a very sociable bunch and were nice, friendlypeople. Mr. Davis liked to watch circus performers and had anotherhouse in Florida where he could watch the Barnum and Bailley circus.
She then recalled the Keyes family:
 Perhaps, Mrs. Keyes was Mrs. Davis' sister. Mrs. Keyeswas a Roddy. Mr. Keyes was an alcoholic lawyer who drove everybody todistraction. They had three children; Bessie, Roy and Olive.
Bessie was a beautiful girl and a wonderful musician. I thought that Bessie might have become a teacher but she died of tuberculosis when still very young. We visited the Keyes when I was a child and Iremember seeing Bessie's music left on the piano long after her death.
Roy died while on a hunting trip. I'm not sure whether he might have died of a gun-shot wound but his body was partly eaten by a bear.
Olive also died young.
My family visited Mrs. Keyes shortly before her death. She had tohave surgery, that spring, and someone commented that she would have the summer to recuperate but she may have died during or shortly after the surgery.

Resting at the Butler Funeral Home, where service will be held on Wednesday afternoon at 2 oclock, with internment in Victoria Lawn Cemetery.

Lynette said that there were Roddys at NOTL in the 1940s. She did not know them but someone told her that they were two elderly sisters who were like "squirrels," never throwing anything out. (Bet there was a genealogical gold-mine there.) Also when Lynette was a child,the family took the boat from Toronto to NOTL for summer outings. At that time, descendents of the Roddys ran the inn where they changed their clothes. She recalled that they would pack the family lunches to eat on the boat during the trip home.

Another related family are the Nobles. Mrs. Noble (first name probably Elizabeth) was a Roddy. She was town clerk in the St.Catharines-Niagara area, possibly, in the 1940s.

["Edingosh, October 13, 1854 Dear Brother Barnard, Believing that I shall never have the happiness of seeing you in this world. I feel disposed to drop you a line to say I am still living and in pretty good health at present, as I hope if these lines reach will find you also. 
 But I must tell you I got a fall some time past and dislocated one of the thigh joints which renders me unable to walk much since; but thanks to my heavenly father for giving me health, and while he has given me all the  comforts and blessings of this world, for God has blessed me with abundance of temporal things, and above all a hope of living with himself one eternal day, and may you and I meet at his right to praise rejoicing love for ever and ever----   There has been a great many changes in this neighborhood the last eight or ten years, almost all the old stock are gone. Perhaps you may have heard of William Hall's death, and his family went out to America some few years since. Thomas Hall is living in pretty good health. Time (?) in this country is very good. Everything the farmer has to bring to market he gets a good price for, and notwithstanding the potato rot for the last seven or eight years, and as bad this year as any other, the farmer can live well at present.  Dear brother I sometimes feel lonely when I think of you all being so widely scattered from me, and I alone without brother or sister here. Oh, how I would be delighted to hear from you from time to time. I have written letters to brother Charles and got no answer. If you receive this note will you write on receipt of it, as I will be anxiously looking out for a letter from you. I was glad to hear from a young man that came home from America that he saw sister Bessy and Charles. But I must say before I conclude that you are the only life of Edingosh and the landlord wishes to know are you living. He will not be content without knowing, and a letter from you will satisfy him. from your loving sister,
Margaret Hall  Dear Brother, Excuse me for giving so little news about this country, but having sent letters to America and got no answer I was thinking I might have directed wrong. But if you receive this note, then when I hear from you I will satisfy you with a long enough one, as I have a great many things to tell you; but in doubt whether you may get this or not, is the cause of me not giving a more account of the country, and if you get this will you write immediately. M. H."

RODDY, LYNETTE ELIZABETH [wife of James Walter Sutherland] b: May 11, 1917 Toronto, Ontario d: Feburary 16, 2005 in Toronto, Ontario 
############# Dr. Lynette (Roddy) Sutherland died of cancer at home on Wednesday, February 16, 2005, in her 88th year
A descendant of Irish immigrants who settled in Toronto in the 1820s, Lyn was the third generation born in the city 
Born May 11, 1917 to the late Laura McDonald and Charles Thompson Roddy, Lyn earned a BA in Biological and 
Medical Science at the University of Toronto (UofT) and began her study of Medicine in 1933. In her third year, 
her mother fell ill with cancer. Lyn and her classmate and life-long friend, Dr. Lillian Lome, spent much of their year 
in caring for Mrs. Roddy. After her death, Lyn dropped out of university and worked as a chemist. 
In 1938, she married James (Jim) Walter Sutherland, "the boy next door" whom she had known since grade school. 
They had eight children. 
Lyn said her greatest achievement was the fact that her family survived with so little money. Part of the income came 
from her work in a variety of jobs, including credit investigator, boarding housekeeper, canning factory and hospital
cafeteria worker. In the early 1950s, Lyn was hired by the Blood Bank Services of the Canadian Red Cross in Hamilton, 
Ontario and earned her registered technician diploma, along with other certificates. Impressed by her capabilities 
her supervisors encouraged her return to Medicine at UofT, where she enrolled in second year. She was elected to 
the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honour Medical Society at year-end, but declined the honour because of the membership fee.
"I told them that, if I had $30, I would have bought shoes for my kids," she said. Her fee was paid by the late Ray Farquharson, 
Professor of Medicine, and Lyn received her membership certificate in 1958. She proudly wore her AOA pin for the rest of her life.
She graduated in 1959, at age 42. She stood third in a class of 108 and won the Pathology medal. 
After interning at Toronto General Hospital, Lyn began a career in scientific research at the Hospital for Sick Children, 
specializing in kidney function. In 1965, she earned a doctorate in Physiology and Biochemistry (UofT). She lectured in 
Physiology at the UofT and mentored two graduate students. She also worked briefly as a researcher at St. Joseph's Hospital. 
After her research funding ended, Lyn joined a provincial program supplying doctors to under-serviced areas. Concerned 
that her career in research only qualified her to be a "rat doctor," Lyn upgraded her medical skills and, in 1971, moved to 
Kirkfield, Ontario, where one of her first patients was a cow. When she considered retiring, she and Jim moved to 
Cameron, Ontario. However, Lyn converted the garage adjoining the house into a small medical office and continued a part-time practice.
Lyn and Jim celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary three months before Jim's death in October, 1988. Although 
she gave up her practice in Cameron and returned to Toronto, she retained her licence to practice Medicine "because 
it was so darned hard to get it!"
In retirement, she learned how to use a computer. Because of her interest in kidney diseases, she joined an email group 
whose members suffer from Bartter's or Gitelman's syndromes. She soon launched her own web site, Bartter  Syndrome dot com, 
(link not working anymore) to explain how the kidney functions. Even during her final illness, she hoped to update 
its pages with the latest scientific information and looked forward to exchanging emails with the Yahoo! Bartter's/Gitelman's 
Support Group. 
"Lyn brought so much knowledge, humour, love, and encouragement to us all," says group member Cindy Kerr. 
"She motivated us to become knowledgeable about our rare kidney diseases. She helped us so much in improving our quality 
of care and our quality of life. We are forever grateful. When my husband read Lyn's home page about Bartter's/Gitelman's 
Syndrome, he said that, for the first time, he finally felt he had an understanding of the genetic defect. She was a wonderful 
communicator, along with having a beautiful heart."
Lyn will be missed by daughters Sara Jane (Robert Brooks) and Irena Laura (Gerry Singleton, who lovingly nursed her 
throughout her final illness), sons Charles Roddy (Dale Farrelly), Walter James (Lynn Arnott), Michael James (Sylviane Maringka), 
Joseph Loren (Michelle Woods) and Intentionally left blank and by her former daughter-in-law, Carol Sampson.
She was predeceased by her son, Robert Francis (1975) and by her sister, Harriet Rachel Kelly Macdonald. 
She will be remembered by 15 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

Wings parade was held Monday evening in the drill hall.

Group Captain B. F. Johnson, commanding officer of the school, who presented the wings, told the graduates that getting wings didn't wind up their training as fliers.

"You have a difficult task ahead of you," he said, "and I know you will measure up to it. It will be well to remember that there is much to learn after graduation. There is much you must know if you are to carry on your job successfully. Carry on and the best of luck."

Following the ceremony the airmen marched past at eyes right, with Group Captain Johnson taking the salute. Dismissal followed and the men were allowed to mix with friends and relatives to receive their congratulations and good wishes.

note by compiler .. the census taker on the 1901 census carefully wrote the name Charles "E" for both father and son as an correction. Later research of the marriage and birth registrations indicate the name should be Charles Henry. It is likely that the census taker mistakenly added the "E" to bother son and father. The father should have read "Duggan, Charles H" as in Charles Henry Duggan as the the baptismal record of his son Charles Edward Duggan in 1887 at St. James Anglican, Toronto.
