Contrary to the opinions published many years ago by the Stewarts, the Reids are alive and well in Western Canada. I am one of many Grandsons and daughters of Robert Reid. Robert was the first settler in Douro Township. Samuel Strickland was married to Roberts daughter Mary. I would really like to correspond with anyone from around and about Peterborough about the days gone and coming. Thankx Rick

Lloyd E. Rowe (

My Rowe ancestors emigrated from CO Cavan, Ireland and we found three of them in the Canadian 1871 census, living near Port Hope, Ontario. That leaves out 8 of the original 11 in the family--based on the 1841 census in Ireland. I understand the Famine, diesease,deaths, etc. However, was interested in looking up any other Rowe's in Peterborough County. Some may have settled there? Can anyone do a look up? Thanks!

Anne Lewis (

Researching DORAN. My great-great-grandfather was born in Canada, and his parents were born in Ireland according to the census information I have. Looking for JAMES DORAN. Born December 25, 1838. Since there were Dorans in the Peter Robinson immigration, thought possibly he is descended from these. Would appreciate any information, however vague and unlikely. Any direction is better than none at all. Thanks very much.

I am looking for information on a family that settled in Asphodel Township as part of the Peter Robinson Settlers. Dennis and Mary O'Keefe. They had several children when they arrived and more after they settled there. I am trying to verify if my great grandfather, John Bernard O'Keefe (or Bernard John as the case may be) was born while they lived there. He was born in 1834. I believe they had moved to Tingwick PQ by 1850 but at least one child stayed there married to a Mr. Souci. Any information would be much appreciated.
