  Research Notes:

From The Early History of Elora, Ontario and Vicinity, p. 29:

"Their house was on the side road leading to Bethany Church, and the aged parents were buried on the 'Egerton Fife' farm. They had a family of twelve, of whom Joseph Lasby was one. He lived on that corner farm northeast of the Bethany Church. In 1837 he married Matilda Crowther, and it is from their family that all in this locality by the name of Lasby are descended. Of their family of one girl and eight boys the only ones now living [in 1930] are Mrs. John Seaton, of Altona, Michigan, and Mr. Walter Lasby, of Northfield, Minnesota." 3
