|Sam Sandercock Home, St. Mary's Ontario Canada|
The Sandercock family lived there until 1974 when their bachelor son Wilbur aka Tiny died.
Recently the St. Mary's Museum in St. Mary's Ontario did a write-up in the St. Mary's Journal Argus about the Sandercock family and this house. Much of their genealogical family information came from my husband,
As the published article states, Sam and Ann lost two of their sons in WW1. I've written about the Sandercock family and those boys previously on the Olive Tree Genealogy blog, and featured a postcard sent by one of them (Cecil) to his only sister Myrtle (my husband's great-grandmother) during the war.

Hubs' family believes in preserving and passing on family treasures, and hubs is lucky enough to own the postcard sent by Cecil two months before he was killed in 1918 as well as Cecil's war medals.
We also have a photo of the Sandercock family with Sam and his boys in full uniform, taken shortly before they were all sent overseas.

In a serendiptitious twist, last year hubs was given Sam Sandercock's mustache cup to add to his collection of antique mustache cups.

The photo behind Sam's mustache cup is of Sam and his son Bill who was killed one year before his brother Cecil during WW1.
