P.O. Box 312,
This transcript is made from photocopies of a Bible sent to me by Louise Gilroy of Mississauga, Ont.
Note that the Jeannie Greenshields Meikle in this Bible is a first cousin once removed of the one
in the Meikle Bible, previously transcribed for TBA.
Following the format in the Meikle Bible, Louise Gilroy's connection to John Meikle and Mary Hoatson is:
John Meikle Sr. & Mary Hoatson
. Thomas Meikle & Margaret Wood
. . Jeannie Greenshields Meikle & Thomas Barrington
. . . Isabella Dow Barrington & Frederick Howard Gilroy
. . . . George Barrington Gilroy & Helen Donaldson McDonald
. . . . . Louise Convery Gilroy
I have only the photocopies to work from, but the names are written on specially printed pages within
the Bible, with "Family Register", "Parents' Names", "Children's Names", etc., being ornately printed,
with a blank page provided for each.
