    Notes 
    • See Janet and her siblings photo, which is posted at http://www.rootsweb.com/~ongrey/oldpics/shears/robertson_janet_family.htm

      Older family members said she was of Scotish heritage and had lived in Canada. This matches the references that I have found.

      BIRTH: Marriage license says she was born Town Brun Ontario. Family sources said she was born in Owen Sound (Grey Co, Ontario, Canada). Birth records are not available in Grey Co., Ontario, Canada until 1869.

      DEATH: I tried to order Janet (ROBERTSON) Weadbrock's death record (AFS No. 1180869)from
      VITAL RECORDS REQUESTS
      PO Box 30721
      Lansing, MI 48909
      but it came back that they could not find it between 1933-1935 in Wayne County. I thought that she might have died in the county that she was buried (Grand Lawn Cemetery, Redford Twp., Detroit, Wayne Co., MI). The county had her year of death as 1934.
      --- I have found out that all of the death records have not been sent to Lansing and that I should try making the request directly to the County Clerk in Wayne County or if she died in Detroit that her records would be at another location.
      17 Nov 2006
      I am ordering the record from the following location, which only has the death records for those that died in Detroit. If it is not found there, I will have to try the Wayne County Clerk's Office.
      Vital Records Division
      1151 Taylor Street
      Detroit, Michigan 48202
      (313) 876-4135
      ---- This one was also returned saying her death is not registered in that location.

      BURIAL: Grand Lawn Cemetery 23501 Grand River Ave Detroit 48219-3166 (313)531-2050 - Lot 853, Section 7, Grave 7 (husband in grave 8).
