Patrick Nagel Telfer, who was Asst Deputy Commissionary General British Army in Quebec City in 1845, married Gaetana Mason born Sept 20, 1820.They had the following children: Patrick John A. Telfer 1854 in Quebec, Catherine C Telfer 1852 in Quebec, Thomas Alexander Stratton Telfer 1856 in Barbados West Indies.By 1881 census Patrick Nagel Telfer was not in the household and the family was resident in St Mary's ward Montreal.There was a six year old Maria Estelle Telfer in the household who probably was a child of one of the three adult children living there.
It is my understanding that Patrick Nagel Telfer's father was also P. N. Telfer.I have no vital stats for P. N. Telfer.
Thomas Alexander Stratton Telfer, an insurance agent married Martha Alice Iliff (my grandmother) in March 1896 and died in Nov 1896.The couple had one child Thomasina Alexander Telfer born in Dec 1896.
Maria Estelle Telfer married Louis Adolph Ouimet and moved to Winnipeg Manitoba and had at least one child John Quimet.
This family is connected somehow to Telfer Smollett family of Cameron House at Loch Lomond.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who can provide information about P. N. Telfer and about the Scottish connection to the Smollett family.
