130 Centre Street, St Thomas, Ontario
« on: Tuesday 31 January 12 15:39 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Hope someone can help me!

is there a way of checking who was living at this address from April 1944 to November 1945?

Jackson Hetherington b. 4/10/1916 served in RCAF, whilst stationed in the UK married Leone(Lee) McDermott in 1943. Jackson was posted back to Canda 18/4/1944, arriving 26/4/1944.
He was discharged from the Air Force on the 24/7/1944. His discharge address given as 130 Centre Street, St Thomas.
We believe Leone(Lee) spent time in Canada with him, before returning to the UK alone sometime in 1945

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi sunscreen,

You can contact the city hall and they have all the deeds for the city lots I would think so the property owner would be shown.

Hi again sunscreen,

I went on the online whitepages website and typed in 
Jackson Hetherington and there weren't any Hetheringtons  in St Thomas but there were quite a few in the surrounding towns ie. London Ontario. Here is the link:

I am wondering if any are rellies :-)  Worth checking out

Cheers, JDC

Hi Sunscreen,

Not sure if you live in that area or not - perhaps a few snail mail or phone queries might be in order :-) I was expecting to see Jackson in phone listing, but thought there might have been descendants still living in St T. London is within commuting distance and so is Tillsonburg and other towns between. Just  a suggestion.

Hi

I live in West Yorkshire, England.

I think it was Jackson's Parents address William John & Ione, but not sure. He would only be at this address from 26/4/1944 until 15/11/1945 as we have him crossing the border to the US on the 15/11/45. He died 1976 in the US.

Our puzzle is whether his wife Leone actually was in Canada and lived with him during this time; we know She was back in the UK by 3/1/1946 as she gave birth to me! They both later remarried and Leone died here in 1996. She took one or two 'secrets' with her!

There was also a brother Malcolm who died in 1972 and is buried in Elmwood Cemetry

Thanks again for your interest
