Re: Peter Fidler born 1867

Ross you've already corrected yourself on the relationshop between Frances and Nora Fidler, which I hadn't read before I put in my 11/2 cents worth (guess I should read the entire forum first). Regarding Frances's limp, you may be correct on the polio, all I know is she was operated on in the Shrine...

Helen Nora Fidler

My mother Helen Nora Fidler, according to the story she told me, was supposed to be her name, but the minister made an error and baptized her Nora Gertrude.

When she died in 1945 (3 years aft...

Frances was not raised by her aunt Myra Fidler but rather by her mother Nora Fidler who lived with her father Peter Fidler. Myra Fidler died in 1945. Frances Fidler as far a...

Re: Peter Fidler born 1867

The correction to ghstill'S comment on the death of Peter Fidler needs a correction. Frances Fidler was not Peter fidler's daughter and Nora's younger sister. Frances Fidler was indeed the daughter of Nora Gowen' (nee Fidler) and my half-sister. gnstill's article also says Peter Fidler was burried w...
