Excerpts from....The Lasby Story
by Bill Lasby, Toronto, Canada.. June 18, 1969
(original is 9 typed pages)
at http://www.angelfire.com/in3/vanbrink/lasby.html:

"My grandfather, Sylvester, married Mary Lawrence, a sister of Catherine, and my father and his brothers were very close to this family...
"Sylvester Lasby was my grandfather. He married Mary Lawrence and they had four children, Walter, my father, Lynn, Amos and Charles. Sylvester farmed on a large farm on the town line between Pilkington and Woolwich Township. As a boy, I remember the old log house that they had built and played in it as my father at that time was renting his farm. It overlooked the Grand River. On this farm he built a large brick house which still stands. My sister, Emily, and her family repurchased this Lasby farm some years ago."
