196 Kay, Blair    
My great-grandfather Andrew Kay came to Grey County probably in the late 1860s. He either came with his older brother Alexander from Fife, Scotland or followed him shortly after. Andrew was born in Collanine, Fife, Scotland Jan 8, 1841 and Alexander was born July 13.1834 in Monimail, Scotland and they were the sons of John Kay and his wife Cecilia Hulton Watson. Andrew was a carpenter and Alexander was a shoe- maker. Andrew married Mary Blair the daughter of James and MArgaret Blair about 1869 and they came to Kent County in the early 1870s and Alexander remained in Grey County. I believe James and Margaret had 7 children, James, Margaret, William, Robert, John, Elizabeth and Mary. I believe both James and Margaret were born in Scotland about 1800? Any info would be appreciated. I had heard of a book about the Blair of Grey County?? Thank again, Ken    Posted on Mon Jan 2 12:26:39 2006

226 HUSTON    
Looking or any school records or info on my Great Grandfather William John Huston, born Nov 25/1867 Owen Sound Edna Ray Smith his wife,married Jan 14/1903 in Fort William, Ontario. Father listed as Alex Huston (Alexander)- Mother listed as Sarah Cameron (Huston) All my research has his birth record being for a William John Huston on Jan 26/1876 to a Sarah Huston at the residence of William Huston a Sarawak Farmer. A book on Century Farms of Sarawak Township has a listing for The Huston Century Farm, this book was written in 1973 and the resident of the home at that time was listed as Amsden Delbert Huston. It had been the home of William and Esther Parks Huston and their 12 children. Many Census record and the Birth record I have mention name a Sarah who I believe was a servant or hired help until she became pregnant and had a boy named William. The Alexander mentioned could have been the father and possibly died of left before they were married thus the record stating an illegitimate child. This of course is just guessing but if any body descendant from this family or possibly a similar story might lead me to my great-great grandparents and possibly farther.

237 WALKER, KILGOUR    
I am trying to find a death date and place for Simon P Walker who lived in Mt Forest. The 1865 Directory places him there and living with his inlaws the Robert Kilgour Family. His wife Janet/Janette (Kilgour)Walker is found in the 1871 census as a widow with one child, a son Robert Walker. According to a news paper article Dec 1870, she asked for a widow exemption in 1870, so I am assuming Simon P Walker died in the 1870 year. I have been to Mt Forest and searched for a cemetery and death record without success. The archives in Toronto don't have a death record for him either. I have read where small children under 18 who are left without a father must have a guardianship hearing even though the mother is living. Does anyone know anything about that? Perhaps a court record would give a clue. Can anyone out there help???? Carol    Posted on Fri Sep 28 13:11:26 2007

Both of the Aunts passed away in spring of 1882. Jane and William had a daughter Jane(Gee)before her death. George then married a third AITKIN sister, Margaret (Maggie) in 1897. They had two boys, Clarence Ivan and Earl Chester. I do not know what happened to William.

I found a family portrait photo from Grey Co, Ontario that I would like to see go to someone related to these people, as I am not.

Charlotte and Susie were sisters and their mother was Sarah MEAD, Grandma LINNELL's sister. Grandma's sister Lizzie was Mrs. Locke Elvidge in Durham. Another sister was MRs. Horton in Collingwood. The photo was probably taken around 1908-1910. I found a Charles and Charlotte RITCHIE (nee WEBBER, born 1883) in the 1911 Census in Grey Co. Bentinck. They had one son at the time, Norman, age 2.

CLARK     Racheal Clark
Looking to nail down my Clarks in this area. Have located John age 40 and Eliza Ann in 1891 census Page 50, District 61? Grey East, Township Melancthon, Division 1. The children are correct. *of note: John's parents places of birth are listed as father: England and mother: Ireland. Have located again in 1881 census Page 46, District 155 East Grey, Melancthon Township, (possibly division 1 again, note is handwritten)They are listed as John age 30 and Elizabeth Clark"E", the children again are correct. *of note: John is listed of Irish origin here. We know that John married again after Eliza's death, I did find a marriage record listing his parents as Stephen Clark and Margaret Lindsay. This may or may not be correct. I can't seem to find any entries for them on any of the census'. I also cannot locate the marriage record for John Clark and Eliza Montgomery, they would have been married around 1874, or prior. Their first child was born around 1874. Eliza's parents were James Montgomery and Catharine Huston.

SHOEMAKER and OVERLAND     Penny white
I am looking for information on my grandparents, William John Shoemaker and his wife Beatrice (née Overland). They had one daughter, Muriel Romaine born April 10, 1912 in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. Muriel married William (Stan) Stanley McAfee. Muriel died August 15/1986 and Stan 02/?/2010 to 02/15/2007. I don't have any other information except that I know Granddad had at least 1 brother. Not sure, but his brothers name may have been Earl(?). Both my grandparents and parents are buried at Greenwood cemetery in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. Thank for any assistance you can give me, Mrs. Penny White    Posted on Thu Apr 18 12:02:59 2013

REID     Garry Reid
My 2nd great grandfather Edward REID died February 21, 1899 in the Walkerton House of Refuge of a Pulmonary condition. I understand the HR was not built until 1898 in Walkerton. Are there any records or details of the previous HR that might lead me to further details or his burial site. He was on the 1871 census N Simcoe then went missing until Ont. deaths 1869-1938, #005765. Any help would be appreciated and thank you. gr    Posted on Thu Feb 20 15:24:11 2014
