STONE family - Sheffield moved to Canada
« on: Thursday 19 May 05 13:31 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace members of my STONE family.

Job Ernest Stone was born in Sheffield, Yorkshire in 1885.
he married Florence Clark in Sheffield, 1910.

they had 2 sons : William Leslie Stone, born sheffield 1911
Rodney stone, born c. 1913-1914.

I understand that the family moved to Canada.


I would be grateful to hear from anyone who is able to supply me with any relevant information about this family - especially if anyone knows when Job Ernest or Florence died, and also what became of WIlliam Leslie or Rodney.

I understand that William Leslie Stone came over to England on a vist in the 1970s.

many thanks,

Jeremy
