I did find out more about her parents on ancestry. Her mother is Catherine Groves (Reid) b. 5/28/1835 in Ireland, d/o Robert Groves who immigrated to Hastings in 1845. Catherine's first husband was Benjamin Reid. I haven't found anything about him. 2nd husband was Sanford (Diamond/Dimond/Deamond) b.11/11/1821 d. 2/22/1906, Muirkirk, Kent, Ontario. I found three different Canadian census with 3 different spellings. Sanford & Catherine were married 1/8/1863, St. Thomas Angelican Church, Belleville, Thurlow Twship, Hastings, Ontario. Sanford's 1st wife was Mary B. Salisbury. They were married at the same church in 1844. Sanford had 5 children with each wife. Both Sanford & Catherine are buried at Durat Cemetery in Kent County.
