b. June 25, 1890 - d. June 30, 1973¹
Lillian and Oscar grew up on farms in West Garafraxa Township, Wellington County in Southern Ontario. It appears that Ausger [sic] was the youngest son of Richard and Rebecca Robinson. Richard was born in England and emigrated in 1847, the same year as the Hannas. Rebecca was born in Quebec and listed as Irish.²
Lil married Oscar on July 20, 1910¹ and they moved to the Richardson area prior to 1911.
Lil was the first of her family to move west. Her brother, Arnold, came to their home in the fall of 1911 and, after their mother died in 1915, Arnold was instrumental in bringing the rest of the siblings west.³
No doubt Lil and Oscar had a full house for a time.
At the time of the 1921 Canada Census the Stacey family lived
and farmed in the Lumsden Municipality.
