I have a copy of a genealogy record of “A Family from Court Mattress” The Shier’s of Brock, by Dr. Walter C. Shier, I received from Stephanie Shier Outtrim, my question is, is there a copy of this book in hard bound and or on disk, mine is three ring binder and is getting worn by family use.
The Internet is amazing when it comes to family genealogy! My father is Donald Murray Shier, son of Herbert R. Shier of Carnduff, Saskatchewan, although Murray lives in Calgary, Alberta, as do I. Herbert’s father was John Adam Shier, and his father was Philip Shier, and his father before him was Jacob Jr. of Adare, Ireland. Anyway, we have three or four copies of this book by Dr. Walter Shier in our possession. Once again, they are just paper copies in binders. Perhaps we need to consider a digital version, for posterity’s sake. I’d be glad to hear a bit more about your branch of the Shier family. I’d be glad to get you a copy of this book.
I was just browsing through the Shier family tree, and came across this site. Your Grandfather Roy Shier and his wife Betty, lived in North York
Bathurst & Wilson area, and was my Mother’s cousin. My Mother was Harriett (Hattie) Shier born in 1909 d.1977. She married my Father George Kenneth Rumble born 1911 d.1994. Her Father was Adam Wesley Shier born 1855, d. 1925. Her Mother was Christina Ferguson who died in 1918.
I remember your Grandfather well, even though I was pretty young at the time and the last time I saw him was just before he retired from the police force. I can remember his uniform. Roy lived only a few streets down from where we lived growing up, and my mother often got together with him and his wife Betty. I think that I met your Dad Keith once or twice, but I am sure he would remember my mom. I had an older brother Peter Kenneth Rumble born 1943 d. 2007.
I get a bit confused about who my Grandfather Adam Wesley’s 1st wife was, whereas he had Maude, Lorne, Ernie, and one or two others I can’t think of right now. His first wife had died and after he married Christina Ferguson. Ferguson V., Ellsworth, Herbert, and my mom where from that marriage. I have some great old pictures of the Shier Family, (Adam Wesley, with all his brothers and sisters, and his Dad & Mom)
It is a very old picture, and right now it is in storage but I will definitely send you a copy of it when I clear out the unit. So your Great Grandfather Phillip would be a brother to Adam Wesley Shier, and would also be in that picture I have. It can get confusing for sure.
Would love to hear from you. Take care
I have an old newspaper article that says Richard is buried in the old Methodist cemetary in Wilfird (but haven’t found it yet). The rest of the descendants I just mentioned are buried in the Bagshaw Cemetary on the 9th line east of Udora.
Cedarvale Cemetary near Cannington Ont. is where Adam Wesley is buried, with his first and second wife along with a big majority of the Shiers. It has been said that the Shiers kind of took over that cemetary.
Apparently there is a monument for the elder Shier that had immigrated years ago from Limerick Ireland, and they originated from Germany way back in the 1700′s. Alsace Lorraine, and Spier (spell?) Actually I traced them back to the 1600′s which was amazing, but almost spooky.
Yes we are related. Roy Shier had a first wife Edith Gibson, who was the mother of Bernice Shier (married Anderson) and my father Keith. She passed away about 1941, and Roy remarried. So Betty was his second wife. I’d love to see the picture and point out the names.
I have some pictures from Herman Shier (Roy’s brother), killed in WWI with a bullet hole through them, and there are no names on the backs so I have no idea who they all are. I think I had better scan those so they don’t get lost in history….
