My name is Ted Flunder;and I from Ontario,Canada. I been trying to research my Bedard/Bedore family roots. But I have only gotten as far as my great-grandfather; Charles Bedard/ Bedore.
What I know of my great-grandfather is this... He was born in United States- presumingly Vermont; in May of 1860 ;and his birth parents were Louis Bedard/Bedore and Mary Dinley.
Sorry!, I have no futher information on Charles's birth parents; and nothing on his siblings? etc.
Charles Bedard/Bedore came over to Kingston,Ontario Canada sometime around 1880's. He married wife; Mary Anne Hurst; in June of 1886; in Railton,Ontario. They had (7) children. They were: Edwin (Leo);Joseph;Lawrence; Paul; Mary Elizabeth (Bessie);Beatrice; and Leonard Bedore.
* Edwin (Leo) Bedore b 1887; d. 1979 was my maternal grandfather.
Charles Bedard/Bedore died abt 1934; and his wife; Mary Ann Hurst; died abt.1945- BOTH IN KINGSTON! They are buried in St. Mary's cemetary- in Kingston,Ontario.
That is about all I know! But if there anybody who can help me fill in this missing family gaps- other siblings? aunts? or uncles? to my great-grand father Charles Bedard/ Bedore and/or parents Louis Bedard and Mary Dinley.
I would gratefully and very much like to hear from you.
Please either post here; or send by email to email@example.com.
Sincerely, and Thankyou!
