Secondcost family [16 September 2013]

You do not know me but I married Ralphs son Everett on Jan 1st 1988. I never got the chance to see any of his relatives as we lived in Lindsay Ontario and they were all out west.

Ithought I would assist you in updating your family history a little. As you know Ralph had two sons with his first wife Ora Sollows (Married 1924) Everett Raymond Aug 18 1926 and Verne Dale in 1935

Ralph and Lorene (Married 1942) had a son in May 15 1952 and called him Lorne Ralph Secondcost

He in turn maarried NOva (I don't know her maiden name) and had two sons and a daughter Lawence, Edward and Wanda.

Ralph Secondcost died May 10 1996 at 101 years of age in Eston Sask.

Lorene died on Dec 24 2003.--Wingnutdawn 15:11, 5 July 2011 (EDT)

Please forgive me for, literally taking years to reply. I have had health problems, computer crashes you name it. In any case thank you for your generous offer. Your line is really too distant from mine. --1931calkins 08:17, 16 September 2013 (EDT)

Calkins information [12 November 2011]

Willis N. Calkins was my uncle Bill. I am the son of Carroll Chandler Calkins (his brother) who died in 1981. I have cousins in Kansas and Wisconsin who are sons of Uncle Don and am in contact with other cousins as well. I'll pass on the information to them and see who is interested in adding information and documents/pictures if available. Are you, by chance, connected to the Calkins Family Association?--717Jock 03:44, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Robert Royse records found on [4 September 2013]

Hi Calkins1931 I have been researching the Calkins/Royse line. I am a Stiles by birth. Ruth Calkins (Calcings....such confusion about the name) married Nathan Stiles. Their son Robert is my 5 X great grandfather. I came across the following information on

England Marriages 1538-1973 Robert Royse married Mary Jugkson 8 April 1627 Saint Michael, Stamford, Lincoln, England

Mary Royse Christened 10 July 1631 Saint Michael, Stamford, Lincoln, England Father: Robert Royse Mother: not given

John Royse Christened 21 April 1633 Saint Michael, Stamford, Lincoln, England Father: Robert Royse Mother: Mary

Sara Royse Christened 8 February 1634 Saint Michael, Stamford, Lincoln, England Father: Robert Royse

Nehemiah Royse Christened 30 May 1637 Stamford, Lincoln, England Father: Robert Royse Mother: Mary

Joshua Royce Christened 16 April 1637 Boston, Suffolk, Mass Father: Robert Royce

Nathaniel Royce Christened 24 March 1639 Boston, Suffolk, Mass Father: Robert Royce

Robert Royse Christened 6 January 1603 Exning, Suffolk, England Father: Henry Royse

I cannot find birth or baptismal records for Samuel Royse (Royce), Isaac or Ruth. I'm wondering if Mary may be part of Ruth's name? I know Joshua & Mary don't fit with the names but people sometimes use their middle names. I am wondering if the wife Mary may be Mary Ann? I will continue researching. Let me know your opinion please.

Thank you, your very distant cousin :D Julie--JulesLonghurstStiles 23:26, 3 September 2013 (EDT)
