So I've slowed down a bit searching for my Canty roots but have also made concrete strides. Grandpa Canty and Grandma Fanny had two daughters and one son. My Aunt Leona took some effort to find, but eventually I was able to find that Leona had married Ora Lambert and they had a daughter, my first cousin, whose name was Verna "Val" Lambert. I persevered and found Verna's obituary and from that found that she had married a Frank Lewis and had a daughter named Linda. Well, she had also married again and other children, but the fun part of this search is I have made contact with my first cousin, once removed (hope I have that right). She lives in Texas. I live in Idaho. But she is traveling this way and I am going to get to meet her in person!! So Grandpa we have not forgotten you. The Canty family is still connecting. More later y'all.
