057 Lynch, O'Reilly, Owens, Doyle    
Our ggrandfather was Eugene Lynch. Listed in the 1881 census, he was married to Eliza and they had seven children. I know two of the boys Tom and Simon went to the United States around 1894, but the rest apparently stayed in the area. Eugene owned land in Peel, Con 1, as did his father Eugene. My first find of Eugene was 1871 when he received land from the Crown, but the oldest child, James was born in 1860 in Ontario, which means he was in Ontario at least 11 years before he bought land. I don't know the maiden name of his wife Eliza, but I feel they were married in Ontario around 1859/60. They were both born in Ireland. Simon Lynch marrie Anna Owens, and Edward Owens married Mary O'Reilly. I am not sure about the Doyles, but I feel there is a relationship. I would appreciate any information that might be available. I do not know if Eugene left the area, but I do not think he did. I feel he died there but there is nothing in the cemetery. All of the people mentioned were Catholic. Thanks, Jerome C. McNichol    Posted on Thu Dec 4 18:57:44 2003

059 Barber, Madden    
My Great Grandfather James Barber(b-1825), my Grandfather Reid Barber(b-1851)lived in Wellington County somewhere. Reid Barber moved from Wellington County to Owen Sound before 1890 where his first son Lyall was born in Feb 1890. My birth father Orval Clarence Barber was born in Owen Sound on Mar 19 1998. I know nothing of the family of James other than his son Reid and I know nothing of the parents of James. I believe James may have come from the Attwater Ont area. My Madden family may haave come from Ontario before moving to Rapid City Manitoba where my Stepfather Charles Albert Madden was born on Feb 5 1905. His father was George Albert Madden-born 1876 in ??. His mother was Clara James-born 1877 in ???. The Madden Family moved to Vancouver BC sometime before 1925    Posted on Sun Dec 21 23:47:25 2003
