They were Home Children; arrived 1914, SS Corinthian, departed from London, Eng. 10 Sept 1914, arrived Quebec 22 Sept 1914, with the Dr. Barnardo's party, and Rose's destination was Peterborough. Frank never talked about his family in England (he was 8 years old and Rose was 14 when sent to Canada) He had a very rough life, and never forgave his parents. Anyone with any information would be greatly appreciated, as this is the only information that she has on her ancestory.

My father, Hugh Thompson Carmichael, was born in Peterborough in 1898 to Dr. Duncan Nevin Carmichael and Jessica Eliza Bolster Carmichael. My brother, Donald K. Carmichael, of Lakefield is the author of a family history, The Doctors Carmichael, 1854-1994. Grandfather Carmichael, the 12th of 15 children, was born in 1854 to Hugh Carmichael and Isabella McNevin Carmichael, farmers in Mariposa Township. His grandparents were Donald Carmichael and Isabelle Campbell. Donald is thought to have arrived in Ontario from Scotland in the 1820's, possibly from from Mull or Islay. Grandmother Carmichael was born in Uxbridge, the daughter of Thomas Bolster III, a druggist, and Agnes Thompson. Thomas Bolster I, was probably a Peter Robinson Settler. Agnes Thompson's family came from Five Islands, Nova Scotia. I would like to learn more about the families' local (Ontario and Nova Scotia) history, and about their passage from and their roots in Scotland and Ireland. I'd also like to extend grteetings to, and welcome responses from, any members of the extended family who read this.

I believe my greatgrandfather is Patrick McNamara married to Hanorah. On the 1871 Census, Ontario, District 56 West Peterborough, his family is #103. They both were born in Ireland. One of their children, Thomas (age 14 at that time) is my grandfather who moved to Seattle, Wa in 1898.

I am trying to find a death notice on Patrick to verify his parents.

We think his father and mother may be Patrick Sr. and Margaret who were in the 1861 Census with many children, includig Patrick (jr.). We believe the Sr. Patrick died before the 1871 Census because in the 1871 Census Margaret lived alone with two of her other remaining sons, James and Garrett. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Bill

I'm looking for WILLIAM RICHARDSON born in Scotland about April, 1812. He had children by the names of Maggie Belle, Robert, Richard and Agnes as well as others. He left for North Dakota in the mid 1880's but as no wife is listed on those census returns, I'm guessing she died in Ontario. Sound familiar to anyone?
