Guess we are related. Amanda was my great aunt. George Guy her brother was my grandfather, my father was Dellamier (Delmar). If memory serves me right, I think I even met her. She died in 64 and I was born in 58. I remember also meeting Mabel because she treated me with such kindness.
Actually , I recognize and remember hearing almost all of the names as a child. I remember the car rides from Ottawa to Shawville and Quyon as well. About 10 years ago, my sister and I went to the Shawville cemetary and saw some of the tombstones. My name is Laura Lee and I was named after a Johncox. We also spoke with the librarian who recognized the surname and told us that the Johncox's lived in Starks Corners just outside of Shawville and she believed that one of them was a grave digger.
I believe the Shawville Johncox's were quite religious based on comments I remember hearing as a child. Do you know anything about what faith they practiced?
On a funny note, is there such a thing as the Johncox chin?
