Brantford Public Library have a death listed for Leo A Landry 4 th April 1979. It might be worth writing to the library to see if they can give you details.

Looks like the wife Mary Agnes Landry died April 1956 - 2 entries listed for her in the database.

On a previous posting regarding this family you were given the Brantford Public Library database with the information regarding the obituaries.  Since births past 1914 are protected by privacy laws in Canada the easiest way to see if this couple had children would be to contact the Brantford libary - the cost for their service is minimal.

I realize the Brantford database doesn't cover voters lists but you then asked about children.  Since you seem to be interested in descendants from this couple getting an obituary would be the easiest route to follow.  You're lucky that Brantford has made available this resource as many people hit a brickwall and can't follow their families easily forward in time.

Hello,

I tried to reply to your message about the following, but comment seemed to be locked:

"Hi..I am looking for information on LEO ALBERT LANDRY, born 1901 in St. Albert, Ontario. He died in Brantford Ontario in 1979. His wife, whom he married in Ontario, was MARY AGNES McNEIL, died in 1956 in Brantford. I am actually looking for his parents. An obituary might hold the clues, it might have his parents listed. Leo had at least one brother, Ovila, that might be of help. I have tried FamilySearch but there is nothing there."

I believe that Leo and Mary were my grandparents. Their son Charles (Charlie) is my father. I am looking for more information on the history of my grandparents and wondered if you were a family member or searching for someone else?  Are you able to share what you have found? I may be able to help fill in the blanks.

with thanks,
Nadine
