Lamarsh wed B Ranger from Kent wilmington England.

My grandmother is buried in (mapleleaf?)Chatham Ontario her name is Caroline LaMarsh. Maiden name Jinkerson. Her brother is John Jinkerson (my uncle Johnney) buried in Dresden Ontario. Does anyone have pictures of their graves or could someone in Dresden or Chatham take a few pictures for me??

Yes John Jinkerson was my Great Uncle Johnny. His sister Caroline (jinkerson) LaMarsh was my Grandmother ! This is exciting. I am so alone now both my parents are gone. We lived too far away to see our LaMarsh/Jinkerson relatives often and my mother's background all british we were too poor all I remember was lots of letters, reel to reel tapes to engladn and an annual phone call to Granny Ranger in Kent County Wilmington England. My Dad was Caroline Jinkerson-LaMarsh son He worked so hard the LaMarsh kids were deprived of knowing either sides relatives.

This sounds exciting. Its fun to research these relatives. I should have LOTS out there but we were a poor family and my british Mum didn't like Dad's relatives. We had little contact with Chatham LaMarsh Clan and letters only with my British mother's side.

I remeber my Great Uncle Johnny Jinkerson.
His sister Caroline Jinkerson wed into LaMarsh
my dad was Thomas LaMarsh. Caroline's LaMarsh husband died mysteriously killed, murdered no one knows. She raised her
LaMArsh kids alone. My dad went to work early to help then went to war against hitler.

Dad died of cancer in 1996. Mum gone now too.
I really have no relatives that I "know".
I feel so alone!

Researching lineage online is really neat though.

Nora rings a bell and so does Belanger.

well then, John Jinkerson and his wife Lila Isabelle had a daughter named Kathleen Lila born in 1918. I did not know these people, but they are in my family. Kathleen married T. Lawrence Belanger, and he is a great-grandson of my aunt Elizabeth St. Pierre and great nephew of my great grandfather.

That is why I have tracked the R. Lawrence Belanger family as they are cousins.

You and I do not connect, but our cousins are cousins.

Nice to know you. These Belangers lived in Chatham and Wallaceburg just over the river from Michigan where I live. My grandfather grew up in Wallaceburg Ontario before coming to Detroit.

Hi I was born in Chatham we lived on a farm in Bothwell (1962.
Johnny Jinkerson was in Dresden.
My dad was born in Sombra (mother Caroline Jinkerson).

I would love to meet some of my relatives and talk
on the phone and write and share pictures. We missed out
on knowing all Dad's side due to my british mother
didn't like them and my mum's side british we never went over there.

Dad moved over to Orangeville when Chatham Chrysler plant closed down and he had to take job at new factory in Streetsville (Toronto).

Is there a way to give you my phone number privately?

Sincerely Emilie LaMarsh
