Hello Everyone,

I have just begun to research my family and recently discovered that my great-grandmother was MYRTLE LASHER POWLEY.I do not know her birth date but do know that she died Jan. 5, 1941. She had one sister, Alma and 2 brothers, one whose name is Robert(he later moved to Maryland) I do know that my ggrandmother moved to Troy NY about 1915. Unfortunately I do not know what township she was from in Ontario. She and her husband MELVILLE EDWARD POWLEY had a farm there, I remember my grandmother speaking about the Powley Mansion and how they were sheep farmers. If this sounds familiar to anyone please let me know.

Well this is an update...My ggrandmother was Myrtle Lasher Powley. She was born July 21, 1883?..died Jan. 5, 1941. Her fathers name was Arthur Lasher and her mother was a Henderson. Myrtle was born in Ontario, Canada. She had two brothers; Percy Thomas and Robert and sister was Alma. Her mother had a sister who they called Aunt Libbie. Getting alittle further here. If any one sees a connection let me know.
