Part 79s - Smith Records - Granduncle Ivan Grayham Webster Smith - Birth and Baptism

28 September 2009

And I continue tonight, on the heels of Part 78s, I'm Dancing With My Ancestors...


The third set of entries are of granduncle Ivan Grayham Webster Smith. Granduncle was great-grandparents William James and Ella Margaret Louise (née Scott) Smith's second child and son, based on the information I have located. The Register entry is the fifth entry on the inserted Page 282.

Remarks and Observations. Legt. vac: notice

I wonder if the party giving the information is one of great-grandmother Ella Margaret Louise's brothers, great-granduncle Hubert Scott? I can't make out the name completely, but at my first glance, it appears to be Hubert L. Scott. I wonder what the "L" stands for? I wonder if grandfather Hubert Lloyd Smith was named for his mother's, great-grandmother Ella's brother? I wonder if this is the origin of the name "Lloyd"? Lot of wonders... I've just got to keep searching.

Enjoy,

Jim
