Chapter 9, 8 - Part 2


Harriet Agnes Chadbourn, wife of Albert Edwin Hedley, and her twin Mary Emma (May), wife of James Wesley Woods, were born April 14, 1886, the daughters of Dennis Chadbourn and Susanna Lano of Kincardine Township. The following is an outline of the Chadbourn and Lano families from whom Harriet and May, their siblings, and all their descendants have issued.
Much of the information in this section is from the book Toil, Tears & Triumph, A History of Kincardine Township,  published in 1990 by the Kincardine Township Historical Society. Although that book spells the family name “Chadbourne,” the engraving on family headstones in Kincardine and North Bay and the signatures of some family members, as well as early marriage registrations, voters lists and censuses show “Chadbourn” without the final “e.” It appears that some families added the final “e” while others omitted it, thus the variation in the spelling of the family name .(Records of the Chadbourns in England show the spelling as Chadburn, Chadborn, Chadbourn and Chadbourne. In Manitoba, records show both Chadburn and Chadbourne.) 
Additional information and photos were provided by Betty Langtry of Delta, B.C.,  granddaughter of May Chadbourn who, with her twin sister Harriet, were the youngest children of Dennis and Susanna (Lano) Chadbourn.  Jack Chadbourne of North Bay,  eldest son of Jack Chadbourne Sr., brother of May and Harriet, also  provided helpful information, as did his daughter, Valerie Chadbourne, also of North Bay.
To Donald Chinnery of Florida, great great grandson of Martha (Fudge) and Richard Lano, much gratitude for information on the Lano family.
Thanks also to Mr. Alexis Fernandes of Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, for rescuing us from our confusion between Halifax, Yorkshire, England and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and for introducing us (via email) to our relatives in Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Hertfordshire, England, descendants of Joseph and Martha Chadbourn who chose to remain in England when our ancestor Dennis Chadbourn and his brother John emigrated to Canada.
Much gratitude also to Simon Barker of the UK for information on six generations of Chadbourn ancestors in England from 1742. And to "Julie" a native of Hucknall and a descendent of John George Chadbourne for additional information about the Chadbournes of Nottinghamshire.
(Ancestors of Harriet (Chadbourn) Hedley and siblings on their father's side)

Joseph and Martha (Rhodes) Chadbourn of Hucknall Torkard, Nottinghamshire, England had seven children. Two of their sons, Dennis and John Chadbourn, came to the Kincardine area in the 1860s and contributed to the region’s developing economy through their technical skills and industry, operating a Kincardine foundry and later buying several rural properties in Kincardine Township, where they established grist and sawmills, cleared land, farmed, planted orchards and constructed farm buildings and residences, and raised their families. Following are three generations of ancestors of that family, who were also direct ancestors of Harriet and May Chadbourn and their siblings and descendants. Note: Different colours have been used to assist in separating the names of ancestors of different generations.

The Isle of Portland,  Dorset County,  England   a 1742 map of Dorset Shire
The Isle of Portland (Photos) is an island off Weymouth District on the extreme southern tip of Dorset (Dorsetshire) on the southern coast of England. It is not technically an island as it is connected to the mainland by a large causeway of pebbles.  The island, extending into the English Channel, is approximately two miles wide and four miles long.Its population is now about 15,000.
Its rocky and almost treeless surface is pitted by the limestone quarries that once yielded the white stone that became popular for England's many fashionable buildings after Christopher Wren chose it to face St. Paul's Cathedral in London. The rubble was ground and used for road beds. It is from this Isle of Portland that Martha (Fudge) and Richard Lano and their six daughters emigrated to Ontario, Canada. One of those daughters was Susanna Lano, who married Dennis Chadbourn. Susanna Lano and Dennis Chadbourn were the parents of  Harriet (Chadbourn) Hedley.

On April 20, 1857, six years after the above census, Richard, age 50, his wife Martha, age 42, their five unmarried daughters (ages 7 to 17) and the recently married Emma (age 19) and her husband William Hinde departed from Portland, England for Quebec, Canada aboard the sailing ship "Atlantic." The sea voyage, with "Captain Barret" in charge, took one month and thirteen days (April 20 to June 2, 1857). Richard apparently did not accompany his family; he may have preceded them to Canada. Robert Lano, possibly a cousin, accompanied the family and kept, for his wife Mary, a journal of the group’s experiences while crossing the Atlantic. The following excerpts from his Journal give 21st Century readers a glimpse into some of the challenges, dangers and inconveniences faced by our ancestors in the 19th Century on their voyage from Europe to Canada, even on an excellent sailing ship with a reliable captain and crew. It also reveals the relief and joy felt by the voyagers on seeing again green grass and trees and human habitations.

The voyage began with "very fine weather...had dinner on deck...on deck most of the day."
By the third day calm seas were replaced by a "very strong wind," and family members, many already seasick, were "obliged to stop below, for most of the day."
On the sixth day Robert records, "Mother in bed all day, the others sick at times except myself." By the eighth day, the waves had subsided and the family group was able to have breakfast and tea on deck – "no one sick or sorry."
Days 9 to 11 brought fine sailing, and the family spent their days amusing themselves on deck, doing "needlework, spinning spin poney for nuts," and killing three of their chickens, one of which they gave to the captain.
On May 1st Robert notes, "The sea so rough, could not stand, all the children on deck with a rope to keep them from falling about...Mother, Emma and William all in bed, but not very sick."
May 3rd brought a gale that caused "very heavy and rough sea going. Cooked no dinner...I fell down in the cabin...and struck my back, was not able to come on deck, was obliged to go to bed." The afternoon "blew a hurricane....The Capt. put our hatch on, so we were confined below....The vessel shipped a sea and went over the capt’s cabin on deck and broke the barometer, hung up in the Capt’s cabin...Sea brining like mountains."
May 4th "...past a large ship...America, bound home to England..."a very rough sea still."
May 5th "Fine morning...Mother and all the children on deck...went in captain’s cabin about 8 o’clock and read, sung and prayed. This is done every night...
May 6th "Killed three more fowl, as our corn begin to run short."
May 7th "... fine, fair wind... All well and very merry on deck."
May 10th "...So much sea. Could not sail her, sea brimming mountains high..."
May 11th "...Elizabeth’s birthday. We had a cake and give the crew a bottle of brandy to drink to her health. About six o’clock the men all on deck, singing and dancing until 9 o’clock ..."
May 15th "...begin to feel cold about 100 miles from the grand fishing Bank of Newfoundland...a little snow and rain on deck...Oblige to be below."
May 19th "...put fishing line overboard... caught a codfish, cooked it for tea... enough for all hands. This we enjoyed very much. All well."
May 20th "...Fine weather, fair wind, all well, very cold...a lot of porpoises under our bows."                                                 
May 22nd "...Vessels getting closer together, as we are entering the St. Lawrence... At ten o’clock the Capt. down below, with us having a glass of grape, all at once a cry come up, Captain, something the matter...a large Bark, so close to us that a two foot rule would have touched her. We were all on board, frightened, if she had touched us, not a doubt but both of us must have sunk, as we were going at the rate of 6 knots, both of us, but thank God, we cleared each other. Their vessel was steered wrong, and went the wrong side of us...This was a near chance of being lost, when you would never heard of us no more, nor what became of us."
May 23rd "...This is six weeks to-day, when we left our home...but we have seen no land yet..."
May 24th "...Bird Island in sight... This Island is covered with birds, it look like it was snow."
May 26th "...Gaspe Island is inhabited by French people...running along Gaspe Island with a great many vessels, mostly barks and ships. We are on deck, well and happy afternoon."
May 31st "...A pilot coming toward us. We was soon on deck, pretty soon to see this new man..."
June 1st " we are bounded with porpoises. A very pretty sight on the shore is one of the beautiful sights ever could be seen, land cultivated, houses looking so nice with all kinds of trees and shrubs spreading all around them, it is delightful."
June 2nd "...ship running along by the towns and villages, close in, every day increases its beauty. There is a church every six miles and such a church as I never saw in England. All have spires on them and with a Priest House attached to it, as no gentleman’s house can equal it....On this shore all the dwelling houses outside appear so nice and clean as a new pin. All surrounded with the most beautiful trees, of all kinds. It is impossible for any one to explain to you the beautiful scenery that is to be seen here."
After landing in Quebec the family made their way to Dereham Township, Oxford County, Ontario. They eventually settled in Hepworth in Bruce County, Ontario. Richard and Martha Lano both died in Hepworth, Richard at age 60 on August 29, 1867, only ten years after coming to Canada, and Martha 25 years later, in 1892 at age 76.

2/ Family of Martha Weston Lano and James Clifford
2. Martha Weston Lano
b. Aug. 18, 1839 (christened Sept. 8) on Portland Isle, Dorset Co., England, emigrated to Oxford County, Ontario, Canada with her parents Martha (Fudge) and Richard Lano III on April 20, 1857. Martha married James Clifford, who was born about 1839 in East Hendred, England, the son of Rachel (Haines?) and Clifford (?) Clifford. James and Martha were married in Oxford Co., Ontario, Canada shortly after their arrival. Martha (Lano) and James Clifford settled in Amabel Township, Bruce County North, where they built a log home near the road on lot 12, concession 8. Several years later, in 1871, they received a Crown Deed to this 100-acre lot. They eventually built, further back on the property, a lovely brick home that stands today.

An article submitted by Dorothy Burdette to The Four Drive, A Genealogy Newsletter states, "Martha had come from a slightly higher class of pioneer family and brought several family treasures with her. The treasures passed down to her youngest daughter Rachel, and Martha’s granddaughter Ena McClean remembers often handling these family momentoes when on vacation at her Aunt Rachel’s. Ena remembered water colours on parchment, supposedly painted by Martha’s mother (Martha (Fudge) Lano), the Lano family crest on parchment, a lovely paisley silk shawl and some beautiful sewing boxes. Unfortunately these were lost to the family when Rachel died without any heirs, and her husband, George Smith, sold family heirlooms at auction."

Martha and James Clifford played an active role in the development of their community. James was a trustee on the school board for the log school that was built in the early 1870s. Teachers’ salaries at the time were $200 to $300. Zion Methodist Church was formed as part of a new mission in 1875, with services held in the log school house. Martha and James Clifford made up one-third of the new church’s membership of six.

James Clifford, September 23 1896 - 57 years
The winter of trouble past
The storms of affliction are o’er
The struggles are ended at last
And sorrow and death are no more

Richard (or Russel), the second son of Martha and James Clifford, died at age five in 1871. James Clifford Sr. died Sept 28, 1896 at age 57. Both Russel (or Richard) and James Sr. were buried in a little cemetery near Spring Creek. The stone’s inscription suggests something of the harsh lives of the early pioneers:

Martha (Lano) Clifford d. Dec. 9, 1910. After her death the bodies of James and Richard (or Russel) were also moved to Zion Cemetery, which was developed in 1896, and a large tombstone was erected. The headstone of Samuel Clifford (d.1920) is adjacent."     (Submitted by Dorothy Burdette to "The Four Drive, A Genealogy Newsletter" Vol. VII, No.1, July 1, 2003, published by Donald Chinnery, Florida.)  Martha (Lano) and Jim Clifford had eight childen (Gen. 4):

3/ Family of Elizabeth Snook Lano and Edward White

3. Elizabeth Snook Lano b. May 11,1841 (christened May 30) in Portland, Dorset, daughter of Richard Lano III and Martha Fudge (m.1836), emigrated to Quebec with her mother and sisters, celebrating her 16th birthday aboard the sailing ship "Atlantic." 
In 1861 Elizabeth was living with her family in Oxford County, Ontario, and eventually in Hepworth, Amabel Township, Bruce County. Elizabeth Lano married Edward White (b. abt. 1840). They lived for a short time in Hepworth, then in 1864 moved to Lot 31, Con. 7 of Kincardine Township (Crown Deed in 1868) where Edward also worked at clearing land for the Chadbourn brothers, whose property was across the road. Edward and Elizabeth later bought property on Concession 4. Edward, in his thirties, died of pneumonia during the early1870s.

She milks three cows. And she has a young man – the school teacher – to board, wash and mend for. Times are hard. We do a great many things that we would not do but for hard times."

Even while Dennis was still a foundry operator in Kincardine, he and his brother John were looking for additional enterprises in which to invest their energies. In 1868  they purchased two acres of land in Kincardine Township on Concession 6, Lot 31, where they established a sawmill.  The same year, the Chadbourn brothers jointly purchased  land surrounding Gordon Lake on Concession 3 of Kincardine Twp. The land was chiefly muck bog covered by bush and pine trees.  They cut the pine trees and hauled them to their sawmill. The following year the brothers bought Lot 33 of Concession 5,  property that was almost adjacent to their original two acres on Concession 6,  where Dennis constructed farm buildings, started an orchard and operated both a grist mill and a sawmill. This property was the first investment in a holding that would provide home and sustenance for three generations of Chadbourns.

Next to the original two acres purchased by Dennis and John (on Con. 6, Lot 31), John Stringer, in 1860, provided one-quarter acre on the NW corner of his property for a log school, S.S. # 7. In 1905 it was replaced by a brick school one mile further north (on Con. 8, Lot 31) at which the present writer Jacqueleen (Hedley) Emerson (great granddaughter of Dennis and Susanna Chadbourn) began her Elementary School teaching career in 1952-3.

John Stringer was the father of Isaac Stringer (1866-1930), who left farming in the Kingarf area to work as a missionary in the far north. Isaac married 27-year-old Sarah Ann ‘Sadie’ Alexander in 1896. Sadie and her sister Henrietta, daughters of Henry Alexander and Sarah Young, were born on Lot 32, Con. 7 of Greenock Twp., the farm purchased by Harriet (Chadbourn) and Albert Hedley about 1906 and which is currently owned by their grandson Al Hedley and his wife Margaret Johnson.

Sadie Alexander, born in 1869, trained as a nurse in Grace Hospital, Toronto and attended the Deaconess Missionary Training school. She married Isaac Stringer and the couple moved north, where they served the residents of the arctic for many years. "This couple worked together and suffered many hardships in the Arctic, giving 36 years of service to the Indians and Eskimos as head of the Diocese of the Yukon. Isaac became known as the ‘Bishop Who Ate His Boots’."  The book by that name, by F.A. Peake, was published in 1967. A museum beside the church in which he served in Whitehorse, Yukon contains many memorabilia. (from "Toil, Tears & Triumph," Kincardine Historical Soc. 1990).

Three of the five children of Isaac Stringer and Sadie Alexander were born in the Arctic. Sadie accompanied her husband on many trips; the most difficult--crossing the Rockies on foot. Isaac and Sadie Stringer made several trips to England and in 1914 had the honour of dining with King George V and Queen Mary. Isaac Stringer died in 1930 at age 64. Sadie, his wife, died in 1955 at age 86.

Sadie’s sister, Henrietta, was also a nurse and married medical missionary Dr. James Waters. Henrietta and James Waters worked as medical missionaries in India.

 About 1895 Dennis Chadbourn, in his late 60s, along with his sons Joe, 25,  and Jack, 23, and his daughter Annie, 20, went to the North Bay area where they established a sawmill at Four Mile Lake.
Annie became ill and returned home. She died Dec. 28, 1898 at age 29. Eventually Dennis returned to his family and farm in Kincardine Township, leaving his two sons to operate the sawmill. Dennis Chadbourn died at age 73 on March 25, 1900. Susanna died 24 years later, on Nov. 27, 1924, at age 77.  The graves of Dennis and Susanna (Lano) Chadbourn are in Kincardine Cemetery. Dennis and Susanna (Lano) Chadbourn had seven children, all born in Canada: Joe, Jack, Annie, Harry, Lil, May and Hattie (twins).

The 1901 Census for Kincardine, one year after the death of Dennis, listed Susanna, a widow, and their four youngest children–Annie had died in 1898 and Joe and Jack were still living in the North Bay area, where they had established the Chadbourn Brothers Lumber Company of North Bay:

Around 1895-7 Joe’s father Dennis and his three eldest children, Joe, Jack and Annie, went to the North Bay area to establish a sawmill. Dennis and his daughter Annie were forced to return home because of illness, but Jack, Joe and Mary Jane established a home at Trout Mills on Trout Lake, northeast of North Bay. Joe died in 1909 at age 39, in the 12th year of their marriage. He was buried in North Bay. Mary and their five surviving children remained in Trout Mills.

Family papers of Jack and Aileen Hedley, married Sept. 7, 1932, include a wedding congratulations card signed "Mrs. Chadbourn & Annie," probably from Mary (Maneely) Chadbourn, then a widow, age 60, and her daughter Annie, age 34. Joe and Mary (Maneely) Chadbourn had six children: (1) Joe (2) Annie (3) Margaret (4) Tilly (5) Polly (6) William John (d. in childhood )(Gen. 5):

(1) Annie Chadbourn, born in Nov. 24, 1897, married (–?--) Irwin

(2) Joseph A. (Joe) Chadbourn, b. Oct.1898 in North Bay, m. Norma Davey. They had one son:
                  {1} William (Bill) Chadbourn m. Dora (–?--). Bill and Dora live in North Bay.

(3) Margaret Bell (Maggie) Chadbourn, born April 17, 1900, married Hartley Trussler (1897-1990). Hartley’s family, like Margaret’s, was in the lumber business. His grandfather, George Hartley, while hunting in the Trout Creek area in the 1880s, saw lumber potential in its pine forests. George and four of his sons, including James Trussler, Hartley’s father, set up a sawmill on the falls on Trout Creek which became a huge lumber operation for a quarter century and was the area’s largest employer. The Company had a Heisler and a Shay locomotive that travelled east into Algonquin Park, hauling logs. They eventually added a chemical plant that made charcoal and distillates, and a mill for wagon wheel hubs. They also built a thriving General Store which wholesaled throughout the area. (Trout Creek is now part of the amalgamated Powassan, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2005.) Around the same time, the Chadbourn brothers built a sawmill on Four Mile Lake that also provided work for settlers in the area.

After attending business school Hartley joined with a former lumberman to run a garage in North Bay. He eventually established North Bay’s highly successful General Motors dealership...Hartley was Director of the Chamber of Commerce for 26 years, a member of the school board for 12, and for many years a Rotarian and a leader in the Cancer Society, the Boy Scouts and the Historical Society. It was in this latter capacity that he has most recently been honoured in the North Bay Nugget’s regional paper "Community Voices," by writer Doug Mackey in "Heritage Perspectives," June 30, 2005:

Hartley Trussler Remembered on Powassan’s 100th
"One of the most capable and prolific local historians in the North Bay area for years was Hartley Trussler (1897-1990). He wrote a column for the Nugget or the Almaguin News for 17 years in the 1970s and 80s. He was also an enthusiastic photographer who took hundreds of outstanding photographs over the years... Some of Hartley’s best writing came from direct experience building the Trout Creek Logging Railway, driving the locomotive and being involved in every aspect of the business."(Information about Hartley Trussler is from an article by Doug Mackey in "Community Voices.")Hartley and Margaret (Chadbourn) Trussler had four sons and a daughter:
(4) Matilda May (Tilly) Chadbourn born Aug. 1902, married Dr. (--?--) Hooey, a Sudbury doctor, and had two girls

The writer recalls at least one visit of this delightful family with their Aunt Hattie and cousins in the Kincardine area.  It was about 1947 and the two Hooey girls were around 7 and 9  years old. The writer, 12 at the time, had developed a high fever and it appeared  that she would be too ill to attend the picnic planned for the following day.  Dr. Hooey came to the rescue with the new “miracle” pill--sulpha drug, which overnight removed all symptoms of the fever and left the grateful patient feeling completely healthy and able to participate happily in the much anticipated family picnic in Kincardine.

(5) Mary (Polly) Chadbourn m. (--?--) Lidkea, North Bay. Polly’s daughter, while still a young mother, had a stroke which confined her to a wheelchair. An energetic Polly, then in her 70's, moved in temporarily with the young family to help care for her grandchildren who lived in London Ont. The writer recalls several
trips made by Polly to visit her Aunt Hattie and cousins in the Kincardine area.

(6) William John Chadbourn b. in 1906, died at age three on July 1, 1909.
Joseph Matthew Chadbourne died five months after his youngest son, William John, on Nov. 16, 1909, at age 39.  Mary (Maneely) Chadbourn died  March 5, 1949, age 78. All three are buried in North Bay Cemetery.

2 - Dennis John (Jack) Chadbourne (1872-1964) was born in Kincardine Township, the second child of Susanna (Lano) and Dennis Chadbourn. Jack was a partner with his elder brother Joseph in forming the Chadbourn Brothers Lumber Company of North Bay. After Joe's untimely death in 1909 Jack stayed on, operating the sawmill and helping Mary raise her five children. In 1932 jack married Jessie ‘Mae’ (Pringle) Groves (daughter of Peter Timothy Pringle and Janet Amie McDonald) was born 21 May 1897 in Forth Shoat, and died 06 Aug 1995 in North Bay, Ontario.

Jack and Mae Chadbourne started out with ten acres of land in Trout Mills on which they built a homestead. Their home was a favourite stopping place for Jack's nephew and namesake, Jack Hedley and his family on trips northward. Jack and Mae eventually acquired several hundred adjacent acres which today have evolved into "a very residential area" according to a granddaughter, Valerie Chadbourne. Eventually Jack Chadbourne Jr. sold the mill and "went into construction," building houses, a church, and various other structures, including a new family home about 1951 with the help of his son, Jack Jr., then 17. Jack and Mae had three sons, Jack, Mark and Carl, all born in Trout Mills: Children of Jesse Mae Pringle and John Chadbourne:

David Hedley recalls a trip to North Bay about 1951 when he was 10 years old with his parents  Jack and Aileen and his Aunt Mabel and Uncle Elmer Scott.  The object of the trip was to visit his great Uncle Jack Chadbourne, Aunt Mae and Carl, Mark and Jack  in Trout Lake,  his first cousins once removed,.  At the time, Jack Chadbourne was building a new house for the family, and David recalls breaking out in hives from the insulation. He remembers getting into the nearby drive-in theatre through a hole in the fence which Carl seemed to be quite familiar with, and also climbing to the top of the ski jump where he was impressed as his cousins pointed out the expanse of the Chadbourne property.  Jack told a story about the local bear that had to be fed a bit of milk to distract its attention from the cream pail when they  left the milk house with the cream after the chores were finished. He remembers a hike through the bush to a small lake and a visit to the airport where he was amazed at the huge size of a North Star passenger plane.
Ten years later, in 1961, David returned to the area and was astonished to see that a ring road had been constructed to get traffic around North Bay.  The drive-in theatre had vanished, and the entire area was under development.

Jack Chadbourne died on Feb. 23, 1964 at age 92.  His sons were about 27, 29 and 30 years old.  Mae died at age 97 on Aug. 6, 1995.  The graves of John and Mae Chadbourne are in St. John’s Anglican Cemetery, North Bay.

3 - Martha Ann (Annie) Chadbourn was born in May, 1875.  When she was 20 Annie went to North Bay to “keep house” for her father Dennis and elder
brothers Joe and Jack who had started a sawmill there. While there she became ill and had to return to her home in Kincardine Township. She died Dec. 28, 1898
at age 23 years and 7 months. Her grave is in Kincardine Cemetery.

4 - Richard Henry (Harry) Chadbourn (1876-1947) married Christena (Tina) Nicholson (1876 - 1943), daughter of Malcolm Nicholson (d. 1913) and Annie McInnis (d. 1909), Kincardine Township. Harry and Tina took over the home farm on Con. 5, Lot 33 on the death of  Harry’s father, Dennis Chadbourn, in 1900.
Harry’s mother, Susanna, continued to live with Harry, Tina and their three children. In 1929 Harry
bought the adjoining Lot 32. The property around Gordon Lake, on Con. 3, originally owned and cleared by the Chadbourn brothers,  had never been successfully drained. At various times the Thackers  purchased the lots around
the lake for rough pasture, and the lake became known locally as “Thacker’s Lake.”  In 1920 Harry Chadbourn added these lots to his holdings. Harry and Tina constructed a brick house on Lot 33, where they raised their three children, Lona, Myrtle and Cliff.  Tina died on June 16, 1943 at age 67. Harry died four years later on March 31, 1947 at age 71. Their graves are in Kincardine Cemetery. Three children:

Cliff and Kathleen were married at the home of Kay’s parents on the
Durham Road., near Kinloss village. Cliff and Kathleen continued to farm Lots 32-33 on Concession 5 after Cliff’s father, Harry, died in 1947. Cliff also inherited the property surrounding “Thacker’s Lake.” He cut the bush off and bulldozed the brush into windrows and burned it. The outlet from the lake was opened, and drainage dropped the lake almost six feet. About 80 acres were thus recovered for cultivation.In 1966 Cliff and Kathleen retired to their home on Broadway St. in Kincardine. Kathleen died in June 1987 and Cliff died in October of the following year. Their graves are in Kincardine Cemetery. Cliff and Kathleen Chadbourn had two children, Donald and Karol:

6 - Mary Emma (May) Chadbourn was b. April 14, 1886, a twin to her sister Harriet. Toil, Tears & Triumphs, A History of Kincardine Township tells of Dr. Thomas Bradley’s delivery of the twin girls. The doctor’s home was on the Bervie  side road and his 5' by 6' office was beside the house. He always kept three or four horses since he usually traveled by horse and buggy,  horse and cutter or  horseback. On the night of April 14, 1886, his own wife was already in labour when he was called to the home of Dennis and Susanna Chadbourn. He told his wife to keep walking until he returned and rushed to the Chadbourn residence, where he delivered twin girls, then rushed back to his own home to assist his son into the world. May and Hattie were 14 years old when their father Dennis Chadbourn died at age 73. May worked for some time in North Bay, keeping house for her brothers Joe and Jack., who had started a saw mill in North Bay. She married James ‘Wesley’ Woods (1882-1931) and moved to Saskatchewan after living briefly in Kincardine Township. Wes was the son of Eliza Runchey and William Woods. Wes died at age 49 in 1931. May died in 1978 at age 92. The graves of Wes and May (Chadbourn) Woods are in Langham, Saskatchewan. They had eight children.

7 - Harriet Agnes "Hattie" Chadbourn, a twin of May, was born April 14, 1886. Hattie and May were 14 years old when their father Dennis Chadbourn died at age 73. Harriet Chadbourn worked as a milliner in Kincardine. On May 30, 1906 she married Albert Hedley. Hattie was 20 and Albert 21 years old. Hattie and Ab farmed Lot 32 on Concession 7 of Greenock Twp., where they had a white brick Queen Ann style home built for their growing family. The young family lived in a small building that later became the “drive shed” while their house was being built. They had four children, Orville, Mabel, Jack and Bert. Ab died in 1946 at age 56. Hattie continued to run the Greenock Township farm with the help of her sons Bert, who remained on the home farm, and Orville, who lived nearby, until it was purchased by her grandson Al Hedley, son of Jack, about 1958. Hattie and Bert continued to live in the family home with Al and his wife Margaret and their young family for a number of years. During her last few years, Hattie lived with her daughter and son-in-law, Mabel and Elmer Scott, on their farm near Teeswater, Ont. Harriet (Chadbourn) Hedley died Dec.14, 1972 at age 86. A snow storm that closed area roads prevented many relatives, including those from St. Marys and London, from attending her funeral (See Chapter 8-Albert & Harriet).
