    From Kathryn Neville Sep 12, 2016
    The full birth date on the Certified Birth Certificate I have shows John Vincent’s full birth date as "Fifth April 1894.”

    JVW’s date of death is 14 Sept 1971, London, Ontario, Canada; buried in St. Peter’s Cemetery, London, Ontario.
    His wife was Margaret Cumming, born 23 May 1889 in Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland; died 10 Sept 1978, Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
    They married 19 Feb 1921 In Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1971).
    They had two children: (my mother) Muriel Mary, born 13 Nov 1921 Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada; died 30 July 2005, Fostoria, Michigan, and Charles Stuart born 13 Apr 1924, Halifax, Nova Scotia; died 9 Sep 1990, London, Ontario, Canada.
    My grandmother was a nurse in during WWI and met JVW while he was recovering in hospital after being wounded in France.

    In comparing your posted family tree and my own, it appears that we share James Walker (1829-1877) and wife Mary Hannah Smith (1830-1905) as common ancestors (note: my records listed 1828 as the birth year for James). Although I do not have the names of their children, I suspect that my great-grandfather Charles A Walker may be a sibling to their daughter “Polly” Walker in your tree because he has the same parents (plus I have an old photograph that my grandfather labeled “Aunt Polly” on the back and often wondered who that might be...). Three years ago, I entered the Walker family tree information prepared by my maternal grandfather on Wikitree (John V. Walker born at Brownedge House, Walton LeDale, Lancaster, Preston, England, 1884).

    Beyond the 4 generations posted on FTDNA, my grandfather's records identified two additional generations of ancestry for our shared ancestor James Walker with only the following limited details: (1) Father of James: John Walker born 15 June 1795, and (2) Grandfather of James: John Walker died 20 January 1820, husband of Mary Arrowsmith....
