Hi Guys,
This is a long shot but is there anyone out there related to Tylah Belgrave Higgins.
He would be in his senior years but it is possible that he has grown up children that could be my secound cousins? Have found a ref to Tylah living in Huron Canada.
Thanks Pauline Lyness (Higgins)

Do you know anything else about Tylah? When and where born? Who he married? Curious that you gave middle name of Belgrave but that's where he lived.

How did you get to him - what are the names of his parents, who presumably are connected to your parents?

An online tree has William Robert Mervin Higgins married to Margaret LYLAH Rose Brydges. I think she is the Tylah Higgins on that 1957 voter's list in Belgrave, Ontario, using her second name which was mistranscribed. They lived in Belgrave and are both buried there.
