I am trying to find information on my GG-Grandfather Oliver Rishea and his family. He was born in Beauharnois, married to Mary Viola Hannigan. Jean Baptiste Richer and Theotiste Bertrand are his parents.
Oliver was born in 1850, his wife, Mary Viola was born 1873. A 1901 Canada census has them living in the Muskoka - Parry Sound District, Shawanaga Township. There were 5 children listed. My GG-grandmother Violet Marie was born 1902.
I'm curious as to what happened to the family. It appears that Mary Viola passed away in 1910 shortly after the birth of their last child who also passed away about 10 days later. After that, what happened to Oliver and the children? A 1911 census shows Violet living with Louis & Philomena Rishea as a niece.
