  3. Martin Beeton Says:

    I also lived in Deseronto between 1970 amd 1972, living on Thomas Street. Much of what I remember is those two years it seems the roads were all torn up and new sewer pipes going in. Lived in a small house behind the Legion (long pulled down) then above the Reddens. My father-in-Law was manager of the optical company Jack Richardson. I live in Newfoundland now and stumbled across this site… interesting to see some old names. Martin Beeton

        Hi there Rodney, took me a couple of years to get back to this site. I did know a Green or two but to be honest can’t remember the first names. I worked at the Ideal Vendors then down at the Marina working for the horrible Dawsons doing odd jobs trying to survive before moving out. We had a lively time there in deseronto for a while! Memories long under the bridge.

        Take care,
        Martin

  8. Elaine Says:

    Hello, I am wondering if you have any information on Eleanor Lorraine (Zacharias) Brant wife of Orville Brant who was murdered on the Tyendinaga Reserve sometime after 1963. I am help her daughter with family history research. Thanks…

    1. Amanda Hill Says:

      Hello Elaine

      Unfortunately we don’t hold any newspapers for the period 1963-1968, which would probably the best place to look for information on this story. Have you contacted the Kanhiote Library to see if they can help with more details as to the exact date? For other local newspapers, the Belleville Public Library hold the Intelligencer on microfilm, while the Lennox and Addington Museum and Archives has copies of the Napanee newspapers for that period. These might be a good place to look for more information once you know the date of the murder.

      Amanda

  9. Terri Says:

    I want to thank you for the work that is going into compiling these files. I am working on my Brooks/Johnson family tree and I have found a couple of Obituaries I have not had until I located your site. I am still looking for one for my 3x Gr. Grandfather Dorus Brooks (wife was Jane Vandewater). If you ever find it please let me know.

    Thank you so much for all that you do and I hope you continue with the efforts.

    1. Amanda Hill Says:

      Thanks Terri – we will keep an eye out for Dorus Brooks!

      1. Crystal Says:

        Dito for me Amanda :)

        Dorus is my 3x great grandfather as well. I’ve also seen him referred to as Dores and Darius if that helps.

    2. Timothy Clifford Says:

      Hi all, me too. Dorus is my 3x Great Grandfather. I’ll join the search

  10. Mavis Garland Says:

    As always Amanda, superb work you’ve done.

    Thought I should let you know June 6, 1973 entry should be under the surname GREEN and not Franklin.

    Many thanks for this information you’ve posted.
    Mavis

    1. Amanda Hill Says:

      Thanks Mavis! I will check the newspaper next week and see what’s happened there. Possibly a mis-transcription, or maybe it was wrong in the paper.

    2. Amanda Hill Says:

      It was a transcription error – now corrected. Thanks again!

  11. Marlene Chapman Says:

    Wow this brings back so many memories of the families that I knew growing up from 1950-1987 when my family(Jack and Verna Berry) were there. My mom and dad moved to Deseronto sometime in the late 30’s I think.

  12. Martin Beeton Says:

    Does anybody remember Vic and Vivian Brant? They lived on the west side of Deseronto and were great friends. They held some wonderful parties and BBQs.

    1. Crystal Says:

      They certainly did! They were my grandparents. Did you play horseshoes there too? That’s what most people remember :)

  13. Jenni Wannamaker Says:

    I have been looking for my Dad’s obituary for years now and have not been able to find it. I know he was born in September and passed on March 30, 1983. His name was David Wayne Wannamaker. Parents were, Delmer and Helena Wannamaker. I was hoping for anyones assistance if possible. Thank you, Jenni Wannamaker

    1. Amanda Hill Says:

      Hello Jenni

      The Quinte Scanner stopped being published in 1982, and since then Deseronto hasn’t had a local newspaper, so we don’t hold any obituaries for 1983. It’s possible that one was published in the Napanee Beaver or Napanee Guide – these are held at the Lennox and Addington Museum and Archives in Napanee, so that might be the best place to try: http://www.lennox-addington.on.ca/must-see/l-a-museum-archives.html.

  14. Lisa Stevens Says:

    I love the responses and gratitude, you do a great job. I am searching for information about my great grandparents they live in port loring for a long time. Simon Stevens and Lucy Annishabie, they had several children some names were Gladys Albert/alfread Flora who married Gordon south i belive my grandfather remarried and died on the Garden Village Reserve.

    1. Amanda Hill Says:

      Hello Lisa

      Port Loring is a little outside our area, but it might be worth contacting Parry Sound Public Library to see if they can help (pspl@vianet.ca). Your grandfather and Lucy do show up in voters’ lists on the Ancestry site in Port Loring between 1948 and 1968, but I’m afraid that’s all we can tell you.

  15. Roland Joselyn Says:

    I am trying to locate info about a Lily Gardiner Boyd retired (2003?) from Weston /Toronto
