the MacDonalds of Loup are growing, version 4 coming


The MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie, Fraser
connections are growing, version 4 will be launched in early January 2013.



Do you have a Glengarry family connection. Is it a Mac, O'Connor, Weir, McNaughton, Fraser, McDougald, Kavanagh,  O'Brien, etc.

The MacDonalds of Loup are growing. Version 4 has now grown to over 20,080 entries. This version 4 includes many church records of baptisms, marriages

Version 4 has over 8,900 new entries from Version 3.Total entries over 20,080. will be available on CD.

This work is a excellent GUIDELINE, not the absolute unshakeable truth on a particular family. Use it as a Guideline & your perspective on your family. Is it perfect, NO!, will it be useful to the viewer, certainly, from a little to a lot. It will raise questions as well as provide answers. Is all the information accurate. That depends on how accurate the information was to begin with. We all know from experience that ages of a person are very seldom constant or given accurately.

This work deals mainly with the Macs of Glengarry County over the past 200 years and their connection by marriage. There are a number of couples who married as 2nd or 3rd cousins. This aspect along can assist in fine tuning the accuracy of the information included, provided that this info can be deduced and found as well as properly interpreted.

More information

Sophia Kennedy & the Anglican Cemetery is for St. Lawrence Church Cemetery

Sophia Kennedy & the Anglican Cemetery is  for St. Lawrence Church Cemetery  Coteau du Lac, Quebec

Just received this Kennedy request.
Anyone have any comments or observations that could assist Bruce.
 Thanks  AWF

Hello,

I have recently found a burial record for a long lost relative.  I am hoping with your knowledge of the cemeteries in the area you can provide some insight.

Sophia Kennedy was born to William Kennedy and Elizabeth Corson on 17 May 1839 and baptized 8 Jul 1839 in Middlebie, Dumfries, Scotland: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XYH6-3FH

She and her parents and 10 brothers and sisters emigrated from Scotland to Québec City in the late spring/early summer of 1841 (they are found in Maxwelltown, Kirkudbrightshire, Scotland on the 1841 Census taken the 6th of June).

We have wondered for a while what happened to Sophia as though her parents and the other younger children are found on the 1852 Census in Quebec City she is not.  Recently, while looking at her mother’s entry in Donald Whytes’ “Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada before Confederation” OGS, Toronto, 1986 we noticed a entry for a Sophia Kennedy, aged 2 years dying in New Edinburgh, Russell Co. on 3 Dec 1841 dau of William K. in Muiryhill.

This entry was found with one for a Thomas Kennedy aged 22 dying 8 Feb 1842, same father, same place of death.  This entry is likely for the eldest son who we had also failed to find a record of his death until this point.

New Edinburg refers to the village of New Edinburgh, now a part of the City of Ottawa but which was, until 1887 part of Gloucester Twp..  Gloucester Twp. was, in turn, part of Russell Co. up until 1838 when it was transferred to Carleton Co. so Mr. Whyte can be excused for his confusion (the original sources in the Dumfries and Galloway Herald and Advertiser list the place of death simply as  “New Edinburgh village, Upper Canada”) as to the County.

We know from obituaries that the family spent a couple of years in Bytown after immigration then returned to Ste. Foy, Québec Co. foreight years before eventually joining their elder children who had become established in Pembroke and surrounding Townships in Renfrew Co.

Searching the Drouin Collection in the off-chance either of these children were buried in Alymer/Hull I came across a record for a Sophia Kennedy buried in 1841 at Coteau-du-Lac Anglican church: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-159378-693939-2?cc=1929561&wc=MMGM-PXX:n6566214%205 which seemed promising.  After examining the document I am certain this is the correct person as the date of death matches as does the parent’s forenames.  Why the family was in Soulanges is another mystery. Why she was interred in an Anglican cemetery can likely be explained due to the Presbyterian church not being present in Coteau-du-Lac until 1843.

Our working hypothesis at this time is the family was delayed in Québec at arrival due to the birth of a child in mid September then were attempting to travel to Bytown overland when Sophia died en-route.

Do you know where the Anglican Cemetery is for St. Lawrence Church and whether a monument might exist?  I live in Ottawa and am willing to make the trip to Coteau-duLac but doing so without a clear idea of where the cemetery is located would not be a good use of time.

Regards,

Bruce Gordon

The Glengarry Place for the Arts



The Glengarry Place for the Arts 

A wee bit about uS ... 

The Glengarry Place for the Arts is a community based non-profit corporation who's mandate is 

"To provide a place of learning for Celtic arts, fiddlers, dancers, pipers drummers, etc; to provide a meeting place to promote and encourage interest in a knowledge of Celtic Culture and to recognize those individuals and organizations who have contributed to the Celtic culture in Glengarry county. 

In. 2003 We commissioned a feasibility study which involved most of the Celtic groups in Glengarry, and the results of which will soon be available on-line.  We will be applying for funding under an HRDC Job creation program to obtain assistance in implementing some of the strategies outlined in the feasibility study and upgrade our website and services, including our Events Calendar.

When the organizers of the annual St Andrew's Ball decided to drop the event. the GPA stepped up and took over the reins, and this year we will be hosting the event again.

In March we held the first St Patrick Day Talent Contest and Show involving students from the local High School and featuring a poster contest for the local primary Schools. This event was to be a fund-raiser for the Glengarry Pipe Band (grade 4) to assist them in the purchase of new equipment.

In April we were successful in having April 6th proclaimed as Tartan Day, and we hope to make this annual day become more popular in years to come.

The eight member Board of Directors iS elected from the membership on an annual basis and meets on the first Wednesday each month.  Board meetings are open to anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate 
For more information, our address is; 
PO Box 331 Alexandria. ON, K0C 1AO

A mystery to Solve; Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson)

Received this e mail- Maybe some one has come across other helpful references for Lois
Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson)

Thanks Alex, I already have this info from your Books, but was hoping it may have been condensed. I was in touch with The Anglican Archives also but they say because it was a Presbyterian Minister they can't be sure Harriet was even buried there. They don't know where, IF she was, as there is no record. 
The Freeholder said she was..........It sounds like William was buried where he was -in the long uncut grass at the back of the Cemetery [St John's Anglican, lancaster, Ontario] near the fence for a reason also, although all census records say they were white, .........a mystery to solve !! 
According to my records Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson) Madelines' parents are listed as Edouard Thomson and Mary Gervais of Williamstown. 
Edouard Thomson (a black man) was given 176 acres of land at Lancaster by King Edward after the 1812 war and this was passed on to his daughter Madeline. Not sure why I'm telling you all this, but hoping you may come up with some thing some day from it all.
Thanks again

The Brigadoons-Glengarry Celtic

The Brigadoons

Formed in 1971 by Rob Taylor, The Brigadoons have, for over thirty years, promoted the Celtic music so popular in Glengarry. Over those many years the band has had many members who epitomized the vast talent present in our county. The original band consisted of Bob Burnie, Gaye Leroux, Jamie Wood, Brian MacDonell and of course, the founder, Rob himself. Many of these musicians went on to other careers in music and are still playing in the area.

Their peppy brand of Celtic music was instantly embraced by the public, young and old. Whether they played to the crowd at the Atlantic Hotel or for a dance at the Bonnie Glen, they played to full houses and kept the floor full all night. Members changed through the years, but the band's following continued to grow. Over the years, different entertainers added their talents to the band. Artists such as Rick Linke, Gerry Lefave, David Wright, Paddy Kelly and Shelley Downing played with the band; today the Brigadoons consist of Rob Taylor, Denis Carr, Jack Smith, Luane Doyle and Bonita Leblanc.

St. Columban Parish, Cornwall up date request


 St. Columban Parish, Cornwall, ON. update request

Hello
Received today this update request for St Columbans Church Cornwall, Ontario on my web site.  Thank you

St Columbans Church Cornwall, Ont.
Name: Frustrated

E-mail:

surnames: Out of date

Date: Jul. 24 2012

query: Thank you for posting this site.  There comes a responsibility to keep such sites current or to take them down.  Your info on St. Columban Pariah is very much out of date.  Two Masses no longer exist.  The pastor died and has been replaced.  Some of the history is not accurate.  This is an ongoing source of confusion and aggravation.  I understand that you've been asked to correct it or remove it.  Please comply.


It came at a good time as I am presently reviewing & updating all my GPSSV web pages.  This is a slow process as well as time consuming. Now I have about 100 pages done.

As no name was provided nor an e mail address I am acknowledging this request on my blog.

If I have missed anything feel free to get back to me with what you consider specifically missing Contact Alex

I am not sure if I was previously asked to correct or remove this information on St Columban's or not, nevertheless I have now update this page on St Columbans Church, it is also linked to the Alexandria-Cornwall diocese so that changes can be easily found under parishes,  as well  I  did some more fine tuning on these pages with what I am currently aware of, for   Stormont County churches,
Genealogy or development of churches in Glengarry and Stormont county,  The Genealogy/Development of the Catholic Parishes

If some of the history is not accurate, please feel free to enlighten me.  The history on my pages came from the parish bulletin, brochure or parish history.

Again thank you for taking the time to let me know about this glitch. I hope you get to see the results.

If I have missed anything in updating this request feel free to get back to me Contact Alex

St Andrews Presbyterian BMD Williamstown update

Greetings;

This is a short post on a glitch that has shown up in   St Andrews Presbyterian 1779-1804  BMD Williamstown update in regards to

  The Hugh McKay/Ray/McRae discrepancy.

 1 Hugh McKay/Ray/McRae discrepancy. In original hand written microfilm records this entry can easily be interpreted as McKay or McRay. In the typed up Volume 1, 1779-1814, I have in my files this Hugh is listed as a McRAE. There was a transcription error between the hand written entries & the typed up volume 1 of St Andrews 1779-1814.  Thanks to John Maher of Alberta with his correction of July 2012, this Surname entry should be MCKAY, in regards to this baptisms entry.  Awf 7/12

B8 1796  p.101 in baptisms & index p.298 or 303
ISABEL  MCKAY
       ISABEL MCRAE, DAUGHTER OF HUGH MCKAY/McRAE1 OF CHARLOTTENBURG      AND OF CHRISTIAN  MCKAY/McRAE HIS WIFE, WAS BAPTISED ON THE 28TH FEBRUARY 1796.

Glengarry County & Area Web page update


The GPSSV site  has been up for years, since at least 1998 for some pages. I am taking an e commerce course and one of the aspects is updating my pages, to freshen them up.  So far on this journey I have now done over 93 pages with more to come.  Among these pages updated are Gravestones of Glengarry, Alexs & Rhoda book page

This is a slow process but is getting done. When finished the site content may look the same, nevertheless I am working on making the links more co-ordinated.

Am working on Version 4 of My MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie & Fraser connections. At present there are more the 18,300 entries logged with in many cases Baptisms, marriages or deaths to  back up same.  This work even with the back up information is none the less only a guideline from my perspective. This may or may not meet with your perspective initially but when it does it will back up the accuracy of the information on a particular family.  Also due to the many similar names like John, Mary Catherine, Alex, there can not help but have duplication of names in this list. Fine tuning to cut down of such duplication will just take time as well as more complete documentation.  One thing that has come up repeatedly is that although the names of the people, parents, children  are correct, it doesn't always mean that they are the correct person for that family. In this regard I have included a number of cautions when dealing with such families.

Version 4 will end up with between 19 & 20,000 entries with documentation listed in family notes as well as some in the web pages of the format being used. This is between 8 and 9,000 additional new entries above what was in Version 3. This material update is presently in the 2 gig size.

I have also just finished the 1st session, draft of indexing the BMD of St Raphaels for the period 1805 - 1834 inclusive. This has over 4800 entries. 
There are 22 heading being used are as follows.
Christian Name, surname, item [B1, M1, D1 etc.], birth year, month, day,  baptised date, father, mother, married year,  spouse, death year, death date, buried year, location [lot & concession, city when available], sponsor godfather, sponsor godmother, priest, witnesses, ref [ for St Raphaels the ref is SRAP] notes, age.

Not all category headings will have information available, maybe in time some of these blank entries can be filled in from other sources.

GLENGARRIANS IN ENGLAND IN THE 1920'S;

A NOTE
by Royce MacGillivray

Two Glengarrians who were living in England in the 1920s have been particularly well remembered in Canada: Sir Edward Peacock and Sir Donald Macmaster. Peacock, who was born at St. Elmo in 1871, eleven years after Ralph Connor was born there, was a merchant banker, a director of the Bank of England, a financial advisor to the royal family, and the director of an impressive number of international companies. Macmaster, born at Williamstown in 1846, was nearing the end of a long and spectacularly successful life as the 1920s began. He had been MLA for Glengarry from 1879 to 1882, and MP from 1882 to 1887, while maintaining his career as one of the best known and most highly paid Canadian lawyers of his time. In 1905, at the age of 59, he moved to England to represent his Montreal law firm there. In effect, he began a new career, as a member of the English bar, and as a member of the British Parliament from 1910 to 1921.

Another Glengarrian living in England in the early 1920s was Mrs David Fraser. Born Harriet (Hattie) Cameron, and a niece of the legendary prospector Cariboo Cameron, she had married David Fraser, the son of Col. Alexander Fraser of Fraser's Point. David Fraser is one of those historical figures whose contemporary importance is hard for posterity to judge because it depended on their peculiar gifts of personality, which only the people who knew them in the flesh could share. Best remembered today as the secretary and political agent of Big Rory McLennan, he seems to have been adored by everyone who knew him. His obituary in the Glengarry News described him as "one of Glengarry's most widely known and illustrious sons." David Fraser died in 1899 at the early age of 44, leaving his widow and three children. ..........

Glengarry Archives, Williamstown, Ontario



The Glengarry Archives now have their own web site at http://www.glengarryarchives.ca

the following is from that site
Welcome To Glengarry

 The Archives are located within the Manor House in the quiet, historic village of Williamstown, Ontario. Some of our records date as far back as the late 1700's. When the land registry offices changed to microfilm records in the 1990's, local history groups acquired the land record abstracts for Glengarry County. The Manor House Committee, a dedicated group of volunteers had these abstracts bound into 30 volumes (actually oversized books). The committee has worked over many years to preserve and share these and other related documents

Enjoy

Keep up the good work

take care and God Bless

The King MacDonalds Part 2 of Glengarry County & Nova Scotia

John Sandfield MacDonald from cover of book  of same.
The King Macdonalds Part 2
John ‘KING’ MacDonell UEL ca 1740-1816

This journey started with the finding of the obituary death notice of Margaret E Kennedy who died in Feb 1905 that I came across in the Glengarry News which stated that she was a niece of John Sandfield MacDonald and both were member so the King MacDonald/ells.

Margaret Mrs John S Kennedy was indeed a member of the King MacDonalds/ells dau of Alexander son of Catherine MacDonell dau of Alex bui King MacDonald son of John King MacDonell.

Margaret was not a niece of the Sandfield MacDonald brothers  based on available present information.

Part 1 of this outline left unanswered questions which may or may not be clarified in the following updated outline.

Part 1 can be view in My MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie & Fraser line connections Version 3 under Margaret MacDonell- Mrs John S Kennedy. The article April 2011 is titled -- Is Margaret-Macdonald-Mrs-John-S-Kennedy-1841-1905-Rockland-Ontario-Actually-a-niece-of-the-Hon-John-Sandfield-MacDonald-The-King-MacDonalds-MacDonell Part1-- and  can be viewed  at    http://scr.bi/ILjtZM

In Part 2 of this outline. I hope to clarify at least in part some of the confusion surrounding the King MacDonald/ell family. The possibility does exists that there are indeed 2 such  John "KING" MacDonald/ell families based on the available information that I am aware off.

Which one does the Sandfield MacDonalds belong to is the question.


For the complete article & documentation go to The King MacDonalds Part 2, Glengarry County & Nova Scotia    http://www.scribd.com/doc/96907306

      Moses Genereau about the year 1900 he had a wife, Margaret LaVallee, Martintown, Ontario

      Greetings
      Received this message last month & include it here in case some reader can help answer his request.
      Thanks
      take care and God Bless

          To:     Alex W Fraser <info@glengarrycounty.com>

      Hello,
      noticed your book of history of Martintown, I doubt that my ancestor is mentioned but was hoping you might have run accross this - his name was Moses Genereau about the year 1900 he had a wife, Margaret LaVallee, pregnat and 7 children probably before the month of June he was in the tavern with a young girl Ann MacCarthy a fight broke out and he shot a colored man, the town residence stripped him and Ann of their cloths and tarred and feathered them, then carried them around town dumping them in a stream next to his house, his son Alex King[really Alex Genereau], told me this story in 1969 when he was 95 years old.  After they cleaned the tar and feathers off Moses and Ann went to Michigan, 6 years later he came back using the name James Cummings picked up his wife and children and crossed into N.Y, were they had 5 more children. a very forgiving wife

      Could you suggest where I might find more information about this, the name of the tavern, name of colored man, The Provinciual police took me to this Alex King's home but that was years ago how can I locate this house now, did Alex have a family? Moses known by me as James Cummings had very loyal children none of them ever told the story, as a child I knew somthing was wrong about my grandmothers tales of the family but it took years to unravel all of it==I am 86 years old and would like to complete the story .

      I have published a book about the Genereau family tracing it back to 1300's, but the chapter about Moses needs to be finished
      ,
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,  Robert Lord  rlord333@nycap.rr.com

      A favour to complete

      Greetings

      For quite a while now Amazon.com has had a listing of about 15 or so of our titles on their webs site. At the same time many of these titles, except Gravestones of Glengarry Vol 1 and 2 were listed as out of print as well unavailable or limited availability.  This misrepresentation didn't do me or our books any favour in that aspect even though our titles have always been available direct from us.

      Recently I found a way to up date these listing on Amazon.com. I was so far able to upload 11 cover images, add info on title and provide a price for each.

      Now that this page is online and visible  at  http://www.amazon.com/shops/glengarryalexwfraser

      I have a big favour to ask of each of you the reader.  Go to this page click on 1 or more of the titles and kindly like as many of them as you choose.  Also feel free to leave a comment  good bad or indifferent for any or all titles. Do both make an interesting comment and also click the like button.

      Thanks you for this random act of kindness. It is very much appreciated that your are taking the time to comment on  and or like these items

      As this process begins to work, then it will become possible to get more of my titles onto the Amazon.com pages.
