The McPherson's of Southern Ontario, Canada Updated February 5, 2008
About Our Family Research
My McPherson ancestors have been in Southern Ontario since the first half of the 1800's (that I'm aware of)- settling first in Niagara and Welland Counties then some moved into Norfolk County (where we live)in the 1850's. Following my McPherson paternal line straight back, starting with my father we have Harvey Wilson, Lorenzo Lorne, Samuel Lorenzo, Samuel, and David (born Dec.19,1796) in either Pennsylvania or Ontario. Beyond that and mostly unproven is William, born in Pennsylvania or Scotland UK circa 1769 and died in Lincoln County, Ontario on July 24, 1842. His wife's name was Mary and they had 8 children. I will attempt later to put a family tree on this site. I have been collecting data and photos, etc, from family for 30 yrs but only recently started trying to get into serious research.
