These are the headstone's of Catherine Bradley's parents. To left is the grave of Ann (Taylor) Bradley. To the right is the grave of William Bradley. They emigrated from Ireland and are buried in St Luke's Anglican Cemetery in Mulmur Township.
Win's father, William Hand is also buried in St Luke's Anglican Cemetery. His grave was recorded in 1978, but has since been lost. William Hand's grave was two rows above the graves of Ann & William Bradley. It is now covered by dense foliage. William's first wife, Elizabeth Craig, is probably buried beside him. Elizabeth died in 1851 and St Luke's has been in existance since 1847.
This picture is from the Dufferin County Museum and Archives. It is labeled the old Hand Farm House and it burned down in 1911.
I think this picture was taken in 1906. I think that William Hand's oldest son, Thomas, built this house. Thomas' oldest son, William, moved back to this house in 1893. I believe that the people in this picture are as follows:
Clifton, James, Their father William and stepmother Eliza, Lena, Eliza, Ethel and the grandfather, Thomas.
St. Mark's Anglican Church built in 1868. The church was heavily renovated in the 1960's.
Win Hand's home, in Orangeville, constructed in 1876.
Trunk owned by Win Hand.
Horse stable behind Win's house. It was built in the 1850's.
This marker is a memorial to Elizabeth Hand born 1798 and died 20 Sep 1851.

This is in the Alliston Union Cemetery in alliston, Ontario. all around the large marker are flat markers for: William C. Hand, Isabella Humphries Hand, Mary A.

Emma Hand married Rev. William Frederick Goodeve & moved to Neepawa, Manitoba. Emma was Thomas Hand's youngest daughter.
Win built the Stanton Inn in 1863 when he was 26 years old. It was on the Hand farm on land that his father sold to him. It was the first inn he built. Later he built several inns, got them set up and then sold them.
Thomas was Win's oldest brother. He remained in Stanton and continued to farm.
