This is very enlightening!It would be something to find the death and/or burial for Thomas, s/o James and Janet.
Is Annie Ewart SULLIVAN's book available for various chapters to be photocopied at all?
I think I will order the 1861 Huntingdon Census to my local library and I am also sending for photocopies for 3 pages from the 1906 Biographical Atlas of Lambton County .....
You are correct in saying we're going to have to dig, dig, dig.I certainly don't want to add the wrong Thomas to my James and Janet.In the 1851, James was still alive.
I found a 1st marriage for Thomas to Mary McMASTER in 1854 with children George 1855 and Isabella Janet or Isabel Janet 1857 according to her obit.It was the mention of her 1/2 sister Mrs John PAUL of Wyoming that made me search -
09-06-1936 Isabel Janet Ewart McDonald, died at Port Covington New York, age 79 years. She was born Aug. 05, 1857 in Godmanchester PQ, daughter of Thomas and Mary McMaster Ewart.
She married William McDonald of Dundee PQ, who died in 1929. She was a member of the Zion Church.
She is servived by 1 daughter, Mrs. Creighton of Fort Covington, and 1 son, John McDonald of Oswego, 2 grandchildren, Billy Creighton of Fort Covington, Joan McDonald of Oswego, 1 HALF SISTER, Mrs John PAUL (Janet Turnbull EWART) of Wyoming ON; a brother, George Ewart of Kansas City died some time ago.
Funeral was held in Fort Covington, service conducted by the Rev. J.H. Gardner, pastor of the Presbyterian Church. Interred in the Dundee Cemetery.
I find all this so fascinating and eventually with all of us searching, we'll solve it! Dallas
