Much of this information has been supplied by my cousin Linda Yvonne Blondin who is now living near Saginaw, Michigan, and is the adopted daughter of the Alexander Archibald Blondin mentioned above. Fredrick was apparently the only child to remain in Peterborough. Gilbert Bruce Blondin had 2 sons, Albert and Harold. Harold and his wife Maisie had a daughter Patsy and they once lived at 264 Aberdeen Avenue in Peterborough. Patsy later married a Mr. Leckie, and they lived in Oshawa, but may now be divorced. I was told that my grandfather or great grandfather once lived in Michigan. Finding someone who would know my family genealogy would be wonderful! I would also find if I am related to any of the Blondin families here in Michigan. I'll appreciate any info.

I am researching the the HALL and BRAKEY families who originated in Ireland and settled in Caven Township of what was then Durham County, now part of Peterborough County.

James HALL was born abt 1815 in Ireland and Jane BRAKEY was born abt 1818 in Ireland. They were married abt 1838, it is not known if they were married in Ireland or Canada. In the 1861 Census they were living in Caven Township.

They had the following children

Elizabeth HALL born 1840 in Canada died 1914 in St. Vincent Township, Grey County. She married John THORNTON on 11 May 1868.

Frances HALL born abt 1841. William HALL born abt 1843. James HALL born abt 1845. Thomas HALL born abt 1847. Joseph HALL born abt 1849. Isiah HALL born abt 1851. Samuel HALL born abt 1853. Robert HALL born abt 1857. Martin HALL born abt 1859.

Does anyone have any information that might link to these families? I will gladly share what I have.

I believe the Thomas & Johanna McCARTHY Family that arrived with the above families on the ship ELIZABETH was the brother of Jermiah. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for information about PIGOT and HARTNETT families that emigrated in 1825 from Ireland to Emily township as part of the Robinson emigration.

Also looking for information on O'GRADY family living near the HARTNETT family in Emily township. Possibly may have been part of a later emigration from Ireland in 1839 (Colonel Wyndham estates in Clare and Limerick Ireland)? Are any of these later passenger lists available anywhere?
