Biography

WIlliam Benjamin Lloyd was born in 1871, the son of James Lloyd and Agnes McAdam. He was recorded on the 1871 census with his family, at the age of 2 months (b. March).[1]

By 1881, the family had moved to Bolton township in Brome County. He was recorded there on the 1881 census, at age 10.[2]

WIlliam lost his father when he was just 17, in 1889, An older brother and sister (Wilson and Susan) were by that time working/living in Rindge, New Hampshire, since about 1886. Later censuses indicate that WIlliam headed south of the border in a similar timeframe - 1886-1888. Certainly there is no sign of him on the 1891 Canadian census. His mother had joined his siblings in RIndge about 1890. William was recorded in Rindge on all censuses from 1900 to 1940 inclusive (details below).

On 28 July 1896, William married Mabel Gertrude Moody. She was born in Rindge, NH, but at the time of marriage both showed their place of residence as Winchendon, Massachusetts, where the marriage took place.[3] Winchendon was just a couple miles south of Rindge. The couple settled in Rindge, where they had two children, as follows:

  1. Edna Marguerite, b. 19 Aug. 1897; m. Hugh Sylvester Stockwell, 31 July 1919; d. 23 June 1982, and
  2. Raymond Steven, b. 15 Oct. 1899; m. Ethel May Hubbard, 12 Aug. 1931; d. Apr. 1971.

Like his father, William ran a blacksmith shop. Mabel was the Rindge postmaster for many years, until she retired in 1945. On both the 1900 and 1910 censuses (for Rindge), William and Mabel were recorded in both cases with their two children.[4][5] Edna was married and therefore on her own from 1919, so only son Raymond was still living at home with his parents on the 1920[6] and 1930[7] censuses. William and Mabel were alone on the 1940 except for a couple of boarders.[8]

In 1956, William and Mabel moved from Rindge to Peterborough, NH. It was here where William passed away in 1958, at the age of 87.[9][10] His wife survived him for another ten years.[11] In about 1963, Mabel moved to Hillsboro, Ohio to live near her daughter.
