There was a Evan B. Clayton in the 1841 census in Indiana. He appears in the 1900 and 1910 censuses in Indiana as well.

I finally found this Evan C. in the 1871 census for Kansas. He was with his parents Joseph and Elizabeth.

There is an Evan C.Clayton in Washington State in 1920. He matches the brother of Daisy in 1930.

The civil registration of her birth in England says "Isabel Margaret." Her marriage says Margaret Isabel. Ditto for the census. It probably does not matter which it was.

I have found her birth registration on the index for Shipston on Stour for the 1st quarter of 1878. That lends some credence to the below. (folio 6d, page 688)

There was an Isabel Boyle, born in 1878 in the SSDI as follows:

In the 1940 census, she is shown as Margaret J. Charles was still alive. There was a lodger living with them; a Rusell Azella.

In the 1900 census, he was a widower living with his parents in Indianapolis. He was already a letter carrier. In the 1910 census, he was still a letter carrier. The only children were Charels S. and Dorothy. Ditto for 1920.

In the 1930 census, it says that his father was born in Virginia and his mother in N. Ireland. He was a Superintendent at a Post Office Substation. That is stil his job in the 1935 City Directory. Only Dorothy and her mother are there with him. In the 1900 census, it says that his grandfather was born in Viginia, not his father.

On none of the three censuses was there any mention of Stanley who is the nephew referred to in the obituary for Edward Augustus in 1958. Was he a grand nephew? Was it a middle name?

There was a Stanley C. Boyle who died in Indianapolis in 1992. He was born in 1903. Is this the one? Yes, based on the 1930 census, when he and his wife Marie were living in Chicago, which likewise has him born in 1903. By 1935, he was back in Indianapolis - based on the 1935 City Directory for that year. In the 1940 census, he was still in Indianapolis with his wife and two children. In the 1945 City Directory, he and Marie were still living in Indianapolis. He was a purchasing agent for Republic Creosoting. He was still there in 1955. Oddly enough, a Robert Boyle was the assistant to the President of the same company. Was he a son or another relative?

SSN: 481-07-5078
Born: 14 Apr 1911
Died: 11 May 1991

Is this she?
Given that she was alive in 1978 when her uncle Edward Augustus died, I should be able to find her.

She was living at the "Timms" home at 1424 Spruce St. when she died, according to her obituary. She supposedly 75 years old. However, in the 1900 census, she is shown as having been born in April 1850. That's a long way from 1844 Her parents were both from New York. She had had two children who were then still alive. What happened to them? Who was her first husband? What happened to the house?

Her obituary read: Mrs. Eliza Timms, 75, Widow of Late Edward Timms, Expired Sunday. Well known resident passed away at family home, 1424 Spruce Street. Mrs. Eliza. Timms, 75 years old. widow of the late Edward Timms, died on Sunday morning. The death occurred at the Timms home, 1424 Spruce street. Mrs. Timms was a well known resident of Leavenworth and had lived here for many years. Funeral services were held at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Interment was made in Mount Muncie Cemetery.

He is called the Reverend Francis Ballantyne by Glenna Jamieson.

Here is her note in more detail:

The Reverend Francis Ballantyne in 1877 after the union of the Presbyterian Churches First Presbyterian Church on the 3rd concession of Westminster was joined in one pastoral charge with St. Andrew's on the 8th concession. The union with its resulting divisions had left First Church scattered and seriously crippled. There had been a fire that destroyed the manse in 1876 and the church was left without a roll of membership. In January of 1879 Rev. Francis Ballantyne M.A. Knox College was ordained and inducted as the first minister of the new united charge. He built up the Presbyterian ministry in Westminster again. In 1880 the old frame church was replaced by a brick one and in 1881 a manse was built.

The London Free Press, September 17, 1880, "On Monday evening, the 15th, instant, a tea meeting was held in the recently dedicated Presbyterian Church, at Wilton Grove, and it was a most successful affair. A large number of friends from London attended, among them the choir of St. Andrew's Church, under the leadership of Mr. William Freeland. The Pastor of the church, Rev. F. Ballantyne, occupied the chair. Speeches were made by Rev. M. Fraser, of St. Thomas, George Cuthbertson of Wyoming, William Ingles of Toronto ad Mr. Hall of Nissouri and were well received by a very large audience present.

The financial statement, which was read by the Rev. Mr. Ballantyne,placed the cost of the building at $ 4,300 which had been paid, and there still remained a balance of $ 470 to the credit of the church.

The Reverend gentlemen took occasion to thank all those who had contributed, whether money or labor to effect the desired result.At the conclusion of the speeches, the choir gave a fine selection, after which the Benediction was pronounced, and all returned home well pleased with the evening's entertainment."
