Hello - I am new to genealogy research and have reached an early dead end.I know that my father had a relative (great uncle perhaps) named Frank H. Fulford who lived in Headingley Castle in Leeds in 1940.I know from hearing stories that he was associated with the Fulford company that made soap, among other things. Also that his family had a large ocean vessel that they would use to visit my father's family in Canada on occasion.
My paternal Grandfather would talk about how he used to visit relatives in Brockville.He himself was born in Farnham, Quebec, where I guess they didn't keep birth records.
I have recently become aware of George Taylor Fulford and am almost 100% certain that this is the same family based on the following connections: Leeds, Brockville, apothecary company would likely also make soap (I also remember my father saying that a relative made Zam-Buk, which I see was originally made by a C.E. Fulford), ocean-liner, paternal grandfather's mother's maiden name was Taylor, etc
Is there anyone on this forum that has any of these names in their past?
George Taylor Fulford (Brockville)
Frank H. Fulford (Leeds, UK b. late 1800's?)
C.E. Fulford (??)
William Fleming (lived in Farnham, Qc and Port Elgin, ON, worked for either CNR or CPR)
Taylor Fleming (born in Farnham, Qc, lived in Creighton Mine, ON, and Port Elgin, ON, b. 1900)
Frank Fleming - brother of Taylor (lived in Port Elgin (I believe) b. early 1900's?)
John William Fleming (born in Port Elgin, ON, lived in Creighton Mine, ON and then Port Elgin, Toronto, Owen Sound, ON, b. 1928)
Thanks for any help at all that anyone can offer!There isn't anyone that I know of left on my father's side that I can ask these questions of.
