  • Notes 
    • Robert Anderson CORBY is born 1890 and his obit gives his surname as CORBY but does not list his parents. There is some evidence (i. e., the 1891 Census) that his father is named John GRANT. His mother seems to be living with John CORBY both 1890 and then again in 1911 and she is a CORBY on her death record. So it may well be that he simply adopted the CORBY surname.

      I am not certain that we have yet arrived at the truth in the case of Amelia Melinda ROY and the various parents of her children. [Bob H]
