It would appear that Charles lied about his age as he is listed as 22 on his marriage in 1923 with Johanna and Bertha M Brondi as witnesses. So he would have been born in 1901 ? At age 16 he would have been too young to enlist.

From Norfolk, 1923
Charles Edwrd Quibell, 22, farmer, Michigan, Langton, s/o Alfred Quibell b. Burnt River and Bertha May Latimer, married Ethel Lavina Fitch, 19, Canada, Langton d/0 John Fitch b. Canada and Eliza Lucas. wtn: Johanna and Bertha M. Brondi of Langton, 13 Sept 1923 at Langton.
first address is where born, second where living according to the instructions at the sight.

Lewis/lawrence enlisted twice once in 1916 at age 17 and then in 1917 age 18. He used the same birth date and year so I am assuming that his birth year is correct. All he would have needed to enlist would be permission from one parent.

I wasn't able to find any Brondi's in Canada on the 1901 or 1911 census. There are no Quibell's in Langton and there is only one Brondi listed at Canada 411 (online directory) and that is in Hamilton.

Thank you ALL very much for this information. I've been away from the subject for a while, but I'm back on the trail again and will pursue all of these avenues. Sorry if I was remiss in my thanks before.

Hello, OP here.

I have been working on Bertha and Rosana's story for a few years now, and I am a little closer to solving the mysteries. I took a genealogy trip to Ontario and Québec this summer, and this is what I've come up with.

Bertha Mae Levely Lattimer Quibell Pearson Brondi is buried in Mount Hope cemetery in Brantford, ON, or at least somebody called Mary Brondi is. It seems she died in an accident in 1928 in a car driven by Frank. This information was given to me by John Cardiff of Norfolk Genealogy. www.nornet.on.ca/~jcardiff

However, this doesn't clear up the mystery of my father's remembrances of Bertha in Brantford, nor the fact that she shows up in the Voters' Lists up until the 1950s. My father was born five years after Bertha died.

Frank later lived with a woman named Hattie Reid who left her husband to be with him. I think perhaps this woman assumed Bertha's identity, or something to that effect.


I visited the Mount Hope Cemetery and found Bertha's unmarked grave (and Frank and Hattie's very nice headstone) and  I wasn't allowed to leave flowers (no maintenance fees were ever paid, dontcha know), so I deconstructed the roses I brought and sprinkled the petals.

Here ends Bertha's story.

Now Rosana.

It took me a while to figure out she was in the convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd (Sœurs de Notre-Dame de Charité du Bon-Pasteur). The convent was situated on rue Sherbrooke but was relinquished some time back. I contacted the remaining sisters, and the very kindly gave me the following information.

Quote
The day before our archives where moved to a storage facility, with the information you gave us about your great-great-grandmother, I looked up her name and surprisingly I found Rose Ann Lovely in the old registers.
From what I understand she was at the Monastère de Notre-Dame de Charité du Bon-Pasteur (104 Sherbrooke street E) from 1886 to 1896. According to the registers, she entered the convent at 24 years old on January 7th 1886 as a penitient, and passed away on April 25th or 27th, 1896 as a nun.

She is registered as Cécilia : Rose Ann Lovely, and on one of the registers it says, Cécilia des 7 Douleurs, consacrée, that would leed us to think she had decided to become a nun at some point. In an other register, I think I can read in one of the columns, Entrées volontairement 19 nov. 1888. That could mean that she then became a novice and entered the other section of the convent to start her religious studies.

In the death registry it's written, maladie : consomption, which meant in those days, great weakness or tuberculosis, that could explain her death at a young age.

I hope these documents will add information to your family history, even though we might never really know why she ended up in our Monastary at 24 years old. I'm sure that during the nine years she was there, she was well taken care of and I hope that she found, within those walls, some peace of mind and security.

Attached you will find copies of, class registers, death registers and some photos of the monastary in those days. Sorry for the poor quality of the documents, I made quick photocopies before the move to make sure you had the information.

Thank you for caring for a distant relative.

I believe that Rosan arrived in Montréal between 1881 and 1886. The sisters were in charge of the rehabilitation of transgressive women, so she probably got into some trouble with the law. It seems she was reformed, however, and converted and started on a holy life. I guess not many people can claim an (almost) nun as a great-grandmother.

I like to think she is in this photo somewhere. The timeline is right.

Hi your best bet is to get intouch with my Uncle Larry he does all the levely family genealogy and I could guarantee you he will help you answer all your questions. I myself am a levely.
