  1. Hi Dorothy And all Lymburners.

    I am the great grandson of Lorne Lymburner. I found the work you did on the family tree so fascinating. Thank you. I cannont imagine the amount of effort that went into finding all that. My grandma and most of my family still live within a few miles of where my great great grandparents started out. As a side note im also the caretaker of the Docstader cemetery and Lymburner Cemetery in Caistor where so many of our relatives are buried. I don’t have much else to ad but I just wanted to say hi and Thanks

    1. Thank you very much, Nick, and it’s so nice to hear from you. If you or your grandma do have anything you’d like to see here, please send it on!

  2. Hello Dorothy and all LYMBURNERs,

    My name is Gordon Revey.
    My maternal Grandfather is Burton Laverne Lymburner b 1907. I learned this about two years ago. Burton is the Father of my Mother — Anne Bradley — who was adopted and raised by the ARTHUR family in Elora, Ontario, Canada.

    Thanks for providing a great web site for sharing wonderful family photos and history. Your site also provides a portal for communications with other Lymburners and I have a compelling mystery to share with all family under John Jay Lymburner born Abt. 1802 (I have not found any birth records).

    I have submitted my DNA for testing at all major sites in the United Sates and the UK.

    As a nerdy-engineer, I have been studying DNA science and analyzing how my specific DNA segments connect to others with matching DNA segments.

    Since my Mother was adopted and my birth father was an unexpected man, 100% of my true family was either unknown or dead wrong.

    I am now devoted to understanding my true family lines based on DNA science. I have been tediously studying family trees of hundreds of matching cousins to find and plot common ancestors. I have a lot of data.

    From the start, I have had twenty or so matching DNA Cousins that I could not connect to my established family lines. They all match me and a known Lymburner 1st Cousin.

    After lots of head-scratching and time-and-place analyses, I have concluded that the most probable Father of John Jay Lymburner b 1802 is a MERRITT.

    Maybe the death-date of William Merritt (First Husband of Catherine Secord) is wrong; or the birth date of John Jay Lymburner is incorrect. I have noticed that photos of the grave marker of William Merritt do not show a legible date of death. Has anyone seen it in person? I was born in Ontario, but now live in Colorado so it may be some time before I can inspect the grave marker.

    The MERRIT line – through PARKER goes to the Plantagenets in England. My DNA is connecting to all families below and above William Merritt. Many of my unresolved DNA matches are now fitting in nicely to connections to MERRITT.

    Other surnames that connect to my DNA matches between me and MERRITT include HORTON, HOYT, PURDY and BRUNDAGE.

    Is anyone else applying genetic genealogy investigations on their Lymburner lines below John Jay Lymburner?

    My family surname is REVEY and my Bio-Father’s name is Trent. I am not changing my name. My Dad that raised me – Paul Revey – was good man. The Lymburner and Merritt names are new to me and I have no stake in one over the other; I follow the DNA to logical conclusions. None of this changes who we are!

    Another Lymburner family member has suggested that one of William Lymburner’s brothers – who were in the same area – might also be a Father of John Jay Lymburner; they share the same DNA.

    Anyone interested in knowing more or contributing to this investigation is welcome to contact me by email.
    My address is:
    Sincerely, Gordon F Revey
    Parker, Colorado, USA
    (Born in Chippawa, Ontario, Canada)

    1. Hi Gordon, a lot of information to think about. If I have any luck following the leads you give here, I’ll add them to my tree. Thank you!

      1. Hello Dorothy,

        My email is:
        I can share much more with you send me an email – so I will have your address. I will be pleased to share screenshots from my research Trees showing connections going through John Jay Lymburner to the MERRITT family.

        I agree that there is a lot to digest here. I have been working on this for three years! My original search was for unresolved DNA matches that would lead to an adopted maternal Grandmother born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1887. I have located her family tied to German and Swiss families that emigrated to Canada during the US Revolutionary War.

        As time went on, I built a large web of family groups confirmed by DNA-Match-triangulation connections. This group also matches my Lymburner 1st Cousin. I was astounded when I plugged in a potential MERRITT Father for John Jay Lymburner and many of my unresolved matches started connecting to me exactly as they should, based on or genetic distance (total centimorgans).

        I am looking forward to sharing my finding with you and others that are serious about reviewing what I am finding.

        Warm regards,
        Gordon Revey
        Parker, CO

  3. I did not know my Uncle Harold “Red ” Lymburner had a mountain named after him in Antartica.
    I am Robert James Ronald Lymburner, Son of Donald Lymburner. (brother of Red Lymburner). Both sons of Malcom Lymburner and Annie (nee Christie )
    I Have 7 siblings. Gail, Christine,Jackson, Kenith, Kimberly, Donald and Andre.Our mother was Jeanne Lymburner nee Nault.

    1. Hi Robert, glad you saw my post about your uncle. I got fascinated by his story after coming across his name. What a life he had, along with his part in polar exploration. So I was delighted to find where he fit with my family. Thanks for the information on your family too.

    2. Hey Robert,

      I am Emma, granddaughter of Glenna Tisshaw (nee Lymburner), Red’s daughter. I was looking for a picture of Glenna’s wedding and stumbled upon this reference to Red and wanted to say hi *waves*

  4. Dorothy – Do you know who has a list of the burials at Lot 1, Con 3, Canboro farm originally family farm? It is an unregistered cemetery and may not have existed until the Quiders lived there. Anything you could tell me would be greatly appreciated.


    1. Hi Jan, no, I don’t know anything about it. Googling it, I found it called the Quider Family/Lymburner/Scantling Cemetery but no more info on it. Thanks for telling me.

  5. Hi Dorothy,

    Rob Fleming here (Shirley Lymburner’s son). I’ve been slowly cleaning out Mom & Dad’s place and have a bunch of older photo albums….are you interested in using them?
    If so I could likely deliver them to you.
    Let me know please.

    1. Hi Rob, yes, I’d be interested. Problem is I’m in New Brunswick, so not very handy to you. I can’t think of any easy solution. Let me know if you can think of anything. And thanks for thinking of me!

  6. Love this!!! Thank you so much for sharing Dorothy. Finding your site has been a gift!
    Keep well. Ttys
