|Shared note|| Menno was a twin brother of Albert.|
Menno died from an accident in the chopping mill in Newbridge where he ran the mill. One day the front casing of the chopper flew to pieces and broke his leg. He died a few days later. He was a stonemason, farmer and miller.

Menna should be Menno.
Lesley A. - I have Arthur Leslie.
Annatta should be Annette/a.
Allison should be Addison, but even in the actual image the "d's" are backwards and look like "b's". Yella should be Zella.
(father) Joseph F. should be Jacob F., and the actual image shows I'm correct. It's definitely Jacob with a line extended down from the b, but certainly is NOT Joseph.
