Dear Arthur, I Am Susan Algie, 50 years young, near Toronto, Ontario.My family tree, the Algeo tree, was given to me by my father, Wallace Lloyd Algie who is 80 now.Our family sailed from Paisley, near Glasgow, Scotland, in 1841 to Ayr, Ontario.Some years later, a younger brother sailed to New Zealand.Its a prolific family, also ALgies in Burbank Ca. There was a Captain ALexander ALGIE who researched the family tree back to Jacobo Algeo who emigrated from Milan in 1420 A.d. to Paisley.He was a church scribe who accompanied the bishop assigned to save the heathens! THere are many women on the tree that we have never traced and likely Elizabeth is on it.The name Algeo was changed to Algie, 'ie' being a common ending for lowland Scots.We have also ties to Wallace, Gordons and Stewart, thru marriages with Highlanders. THe Algies document is four pages long.My father and I would be glad to share any info.In addition, my father was named after a Victoria CRoss medal winner, his uncle,who died in France in October 1918, not long after your grandfather. Did he die overseas in WWI? Algars, ELgies are also variants which my father believes were originally from the Paisley area.You can contact me thru my son's email address, because there's a lot more info. My husband and I own a store in Toronto.There is the old house in Alton, Ontario where my descendants moved after leaving Ayr.They were free thinkers who started the Mechanics Institute and professed that science and technology would provide answers that were lacking in religion. My grandfather, Robert Laird, came back to Toronto no longer an atheist after surviving WWI!Bye for now.
