Hello Sharon, I'm second generation Canadian Etherton. My great grandfather John immigrated to Bruce county, Ont. in 1900. He had three wee children in two, including my grand Dad Thomas.
John's father, John, was born in 1857 and married Hannah Taylor. They had 14 siblings, including my great grandfather. Although my ggrandfather worked in Rochester, Kent, I'm not sure if he was reared there.
