Thanks for posting this. I just checked the Stiver last name. There were 4 - none who lived in Barrie so it will be useful for more than those who lived in Barrie or Simcoe County. As far as I know, must or all Stiver names in Ontario are connected.

2 were for Lovell John Stiver in 1949 in Toronto; 1 for Martha Stiver in 1924 in Exeter
1 for W. Arthur Stiver in London, England.

Next time I am in Barrie, and time permits, I will check the microfilms for these.
