bullet  General Notes:

The two grandfathers not only had a competition with their pigeons and gladiolas, but were also a contrast in appearance. Grandpa Sheward combed his hair, dressed neatly, had a trimmed white mustache and had ankle-high black shoes, shined. He always looked neat, even while he was gardening.

Grandpa Briggs wore slippers most of the time and had a big, handlebar mustache. His hair was seldom combed. He never wore a hat. He wore a tired black suit, without a shirt collar. He smoked a pipe ferociously... he burned holes in dozens of them.

Neither one of the grandfathers were loquacious.

At his death, there was apparently some confusion as to who should be buried where. Attached to his burial record was the following note: Geo Sheward married twice. 2nd wife inherited all of his estate. Dau of 2nd wife--Mrs. Brooks (nee Fulton) of Hamilton inherited all of her mother's estate. A Mr. Moore of Burlington came in to see what could be done about the vacant graves. He will be the executor of estate. Mrs. Mary Brooks 5 Aug 1980. Property was transferred to Guelph Cemetery gr 1 & 4 in Sept 1980.
