Looking for descendants of the above relative (my maternal 1st cousin 3 times removed), who was born in Simcoe, County, Ontario, Canada; was in 1925 pastor of First Methodist Church at Galveston TX. My information is that he married abt 1894 Blanche (Leland)??, b. abt 1873 in Texas or Minnesota (parents born Michigan and New York). The only child I am aware of is a daughter named Virginia, b. abt 1900 in Minnesota or Pennsylvania, not at home in 1930. In 1900, John and Blanche were living in Ayer MA; 1910 in Lincoln MO; 1920 in St Louis MO; 1930 in Navasota TX.

There is a record of a John Cecil Handy of MD and Blanche Leland of MN marrying in MN in 1895, but I am not certain this is the same couple.
