I was wondering if anyone might recognize the family of my gg g'ma's sister, Flora.
1Willliam ROBINSONb: ca 1859[s/o Jane and John ROBINSON] -+Flora MCKECHNIEb: aft 1861 m: May 02, 1879 Little Current, Manitoullin Island, Ontario, CANFather: Duncan MCKECHNIEMother: Jane ROBINSON 2Wallace ROBINSONb: Aft. 1879 2Donna ROBINSONb: Aft. 1879
This is based on a combination of things. I found the marriage record on the Manitoulin Island website. Plus, my g'ma and her sister recall that their g'ma (Barbra McKECHNIE, Flora's sister) had some relations in Vancouver and British Columbia. They also remember her relative, who they called Aunt Flora. Flora m. a ROBINSON and had children Wallace and Donna. I don't know if Flora was the one in Vancouver and BC.
I don't know how/when they wound up on Manitoullin Island, but Barbra McKECHNIE and her husband, William JOHNSON, had Ann there in 1888, Mary Jane in 1889, and probably Reuben in 1891. Barbara's family went on to Sault Ste. Marie, MI in 1891.
