Hi Gay,

I was born in Coe Hill in 1946. Both the Danford and Gilroy names are familiar to me. My great-great-grandparents were John Gilroy and Samantha Asseltine. They had several daughters-Edith married Elisha Ash- was my great grandmother. Her sister Martha married ? Danford. They had 2 sons- Clinton (deseased) and Elgin (lives around Marmora, Ontario), also I think a daughter named Edra.Clinton's family grew up in Coe Hill but none are there now. His widow Doris passed away last November. Their children are Lorne, Gail, Donald, Diana, Holly and Craig. I'm not sure where any of them are located at present. I'll check with my dad who still lives in Coe Hill re Martha's husbands name as it is on Dad's side of the family through the Gilroy, Ash, Keller families that the connection is made.

Hi Barbara,

Just wondering if you have any Isaac Danford's in your family tree or in any of your family tree research. I know he came from the Hastings area originally but can't find any early info on him or his family.
