Charles, son of Mariah Parr and Robert Tunks was born 17 May 1858 at Mosa Township, Middlesex County, Ontario.
Mary died of pneumonia on 28 November 1901226 and was buried in the West Bothwell Cemetery at Bothwell, Ontario. Her headstone has this encryption,
She was a tender mother here,
and her life the Lord did fear,
We trust our loss will be her gain,
and that with Christ she’s gone to reign.
Charles remarried to Ellen Cadogan. Ellen, daughter of Walter Cadogan and Eleanor Adeline Carl, was born 9 December 1867227 at Walsingham, Ontario.
Charles and Ellen had twins, Clifford Elliot and Jean. Ellen, or Nellie as she was called, said she wouldn't wish twins on anyone. Her first set of twins was with William. Nellie was said to have big ginger snap cookies and butter tarts every Sunday.
Charles died 26 April 1946 and was buried in the West Bothwell Cemetery. Nellie died in 1957 and was also buried in the West Bothwell Cemetery.
If you have information on Charles of Mary, or their descendants, I'd be thrilled to hear from you!
