Message to Glenn Coutts who last posted on Oct 04, 2004 regarding the "Traxler-Keech connection in Ontario".
Emma Traxler, b abt 1862, d 1898 (sister to your great grandmother, Rachael Traxler), is my great grandmother. I have not been able to find any information on Rachael and Emma except that Emma married Patrick Major and had FOUR children (Wm. Maurice, who went by Maurice, Stanley, Ida May, who went by May, and Peter who died in a drowning accident in Puce. I believe these may be four of the ten children you have listed as children of Rachael and Donald Coutts.Rachael Traxler married Donald Coutts and I thought had 5 children. After the deaths of Donald and Emma, Rachael Traxler and Patrick Major were married and their households were merged.
I have marriage certificates that list Peter J. Traxler and Mary Blackburn as Rachael and Emma's parents. I have not been able to find anything on Peter and Mary. If you have any other info on the Traxler and Blackburn families (I have very little,actually), I'd hoped that you wouldn't mind sharing it.Thanks much.
ps: My mother's family was from Puce and they were all raised together with the Coutts family
