Ongoing research covering Ontario,Canada, England, Scotland, USA and where ever the threads lead us. With a lot of help from volunteers(God Bless them All) and cousins that seem to arrive at just the right time, WE are moving forward on first one branch then the next.
Current names being researched: John Wallis-1775 Norfolk England, brother William settled in Huntingdon Quebec in late 1700's and raised families, in Hemmingford,and surrounding areas.John Wallis married Mary deLong of New York state, father Ezikuil deLong, mother unknown.Both died in Huntingdon Quebec. Church records, census, marriage, birth records for their decendents are doccumented but still have far to go.
Robert Gray born1822 in England, married to Jane Mead b. 1822 England, marriage in England 1844. Arrived in Canada and settled in Mulmur Township,Ontario 1848, children Henry Charles, Featherstone, Robert Jr. Marion, Catherine Minroy. Still have gaps in this group with exception of Henry and brother Featherstone who married sisters Mary Jane Corby and Elizabeth Ann Corby, daughters of John Corby and Catherine Fitzgerald of England.
Next up is Alexander Milne of which we have an amazing variety, came to Canada in late 1700's -late 1800's and have a consistent name ie: Scot Alexander, Alexander Granger, James Alexander and so forth. Sorting out who is who can get confusing so much help has been needed to link the names. Scott Alexander Milne married Mary Amelia Wallis daughter of Henry Wallis Son of John Wallis and Mary deLong.
To add flavour we throw in Pietschmann/Osthus from Germany who cane to Canada in 1879,settled in Gurd township, Ontario and raised 4 children , Son Charles married Ann Beatrice Milne daughter of Scott Alexander Milne and Mary Amelia Wallis
