Lost Ancestors - John Sidey or Sidell or Sideil or Sided, Thorold, Ontario, CDV Photograph

I just can't make up my mind on who this gentleman was. In the back in horrible handwriting is his name. Maybe the family genealogist can clue me in. I put in the spelling different ways in order to catch a Google search. Photographer Geo. Grenville, Thorold, Ontario Canada.

CDV size 2 1/2 x 4 1/14 inches. Slightly faded and stained. Good condition. Comes in a sturdy photo sleeve. 

Can be found at my store link

 8-2-2011 John Sidey's family found him and he is going home. He is excited and it's going to be a great reunion after so many years.

I still have this photo of John Sidey. I corrected the link to my Lost Ancestors store. If you are unable to view it let me know. Thanks for asking and I hope he is your ancestor.

Thanks. My husband Gord purchased the photo a little while ago.

I received your payment and I am so glad he is found and going home. I am now preparing to pack him up for the trip. He will depart on Wednesday morning via U.S. Post office coming from Michigan. He is excited to meet you.
