|John and Elizabeth Montgomery KIRKPATRICK,were married on Jan 13, 1813 in Aghavea, Fermanagh, Ireland.|
That is the earliest piece of information I have.They immigrated to Canada in the 1840's, andsettled in West Williams Twp. of Middlesex Co, Ontario, Canada. They had two sons Robert and William,Robert had a business in London, and married Caroline Payne of England.
William (our direct line) married Jane Westnott, also of Ireland, and farmed in West Williams twp.Of course I have many more details, and also many gaps to fill.
I started this quest to find the family roots a little over a year and one-half ago.We were planning a get together to celebrate my father-in-law's 87th birthday, and 100 yr for the family farm...
I then got the bright idea that it would be nice to dig up some of the family history for all to see & discuss that day... Thinking that this would be an easy task, I have since decided was wrong... Thinking, also that it was something I would soon be done with was definitely WRONG!!!!I am I'm afraid as they say, HOOKED!!!I intend to include here the details of what I have found for all to see, and maybe, just maybe you will be a distant cousin, and have something to add.I do however need to check some things out before I include the family file, so be patient with me.... I can say that some of the names will be;
KIRKPATRICK(of course),WESTNOTT; JOHNSON; MOTT; SADLER; STINSON; YOUNG; KOHN; PHILPOT; MANLEY,and many more...Geeesshhh...This is already looking like work!!
Well, anyway there is not much here, and I hope to add lots more,but for now if any of this looks like it may be of interest to you, you can contact me..... In fact.. Please do... Thanks for stopping by, and again, please be patient with me.
