Thanks dbreez and Sandra for your postings.  The Kodak company employed many in the family.  George Ross Stonehouse (1889-1959) is the ancestor I am most interested in, he married Annie Farrow. All information on this family is appreciated.

Hi,

Annie's obit in the Star doesn't mention any grandchildren by name.  She died at her home, 18 Batavia Avenue, on Oct 21, 1964.  Wife of the late George Ross Stonehouse and mother of Eileen (Mrs C Motton), Ross, Lloyd and the late Bernice (Mrs W.L. Ferguson).  Interment Park Lawn.

George Ross's obit mentions wife Annie Farrow and the same children.  He died at the Toronto Western Hospital on July JUNE 5, 1959. (Sorry, wrote it wrong :P)

From findagrave - Bernice is the Margaret who died in 1954.  (Park Lawn cemetery)
