2005. Leslie Arthur's son, Lesley Morrison Osmond died 20/5/2005, aged 70 , Oakville - this south of Toronto

lmo-2005 death

So, Leslie Arthur Ormrod, 1909, had grandchildren: Karen Osmond, Anne Osmond, Lee Osmond and David Osmond

2010. This is maybe the death of his daughter Barbara Osmond - giving her a birth Nov 1934-Oct 1935: this a little suspect as mother Anne was on a ship in Nov 1936 with just 9 mth old Leslie M Osmond , so surely daughter Barbara born after that? But maybe the family were not certain of her exact age

If the above were the daughter of Leslie A Osmond, then Donna Reed [David], Kimberly Reed [Eddy], Katherine Reed[Wayne] and Russell Reed are his grandchildren,

A Post on Rootschat enabled me to find the above info. Have searched again July 2021 and have got no further.

But maybe one day, one of Karen Osmond, Anne Osmond, Lee Osmond and David Osmond, all born post 1952, might contact me!!

January 2022 searched again for any trace of them
