Re: Massachussetts side of the Family - poss William H
I am searching for the parents of a Viola Marie Handfield estimated to be born about 1908, possibly in Rhode Island.
I just found a 1920 census record for the family of Richard and Mary Handfield in Providence Co., Rhode Island that includes a daughter named Viola born about 1914.Because of the difference in age, I cannot be sure this is the right Viola.Viola is actually still alive in Rhode Island, but in a nursing home with Alzheimers, and I haven't been able to get her actual dob from any of the folks back there.
Richard Handfield says he was born about 1872 in MA and that his parents were born in Canada.I've checked all the Handfields I can find in 1880 and 1900 Mass. census records but cannot find a Richard or a son that age with initial R.Very frustrating
Can you help?
