I’ve already blogged about Lucy Ann (“Annie”) and her family.
This blog, in three parts, will be about Annie’s sisters:
- Part One – Mary Ellen Evison and Charles Franklin Link
- Part Two – Susan Matilda Evison and John Lewis Post
- Part Three – Cintha (Cynthia) Evison and William Frederick Finch
Mary Ellen Evison and Charles Franklin (“Frank”) Link
Mary Ellen was born in Westminster Township in the County of Middlesex in Ontario (Canada) on 13 Nov 1879. She likely lived with her parents until she married Charles Franklin Link on 20 Jun 1906 in London, Middlesex County, Ontario (Canada).
Frank, as he was known, is the son of James Link and Jane Wagoner. He was born in Delaware (Middlesex County, Ontario) on 4 Jul 1873.
On 8 Apr 1908 in London (Ontario), Charles and Mary had a daughter that they named Delma Helen Link.
In 1911, Frank, Mary, and Delma were living in Dunwich Township in Elgin County in Ontario (Canada). Frank was employed as a farmer.
Because the 1911 Canadian Census is the last census to be released by the Canadian Government, I don’t know whether Frank and Mary had any more children.
*** see below for update!
Delma married Orval Glenn Paton, son of Archibald Paton and Mabel McIntyre, in September of 1931.
Frank was 85 years old when he died in Iona (Ontario) on Christmas Eve 1958. Mary died on 19 Sep 1963 in Iona in her 84th year. Frank and Mary Evison Link are buried in Scottsville Cemetery in Scottsville, Ontario (Canada).
*** Update on 17 Nov 2013
The 1921 Canadian Census has now been released!!
In 1921, Frank and Mary Ellen and their children were still living in Dunwich Township (Ontario). Frank was employed as a labourer, earning $500 a year.
Frank and Mary Ellen had a second child — a son named Stuart. He was 2 years old in 1921, so he was born in about 1919.
I wasn’t able to locate a birth document for Stuart. About the only information that I could find for him is that, according to the transcription on the Ontario Genealogical Society website, he is buried in Scottsville Cemetery — in the same plot as his parents, but there doesn’t appear to be a headstone for him.
