Exploring John Street

Mrs. Mary Eleanor Moors nee Haddow, my great grandmother, passed away at her home on 139 1/2 John Street South in February, 1944.  She had lived in Hamilton for most of her life, living first at 42 Jones Street where my grandfather, John Moors, was born and she was known for her kind and generous nature.  This kind heart won her a wide circle of friends.  She attended Centenary United Church and from the time that her husband, John, died in Etaples, France in service of our country, she lived with her sister Margaret.  I felt strongly about visiting her apartment in the city and the church that she attended.
