|Death: ||Mar. 10, 1915|
Maria Perrin was the daughter of Humphrey Perrin and Elizabeth Saunders.
Although her birthyear was inscribed as 1828 on her headstone, her true birth year by all accounts (census data compared to age of husband Robert, age at marriage, age at death) was 1830 or 1831.
She married Robert McKibbon, a boot and shoemaker on February 16, 1858. At the time Robert was a widower so Maria became mother to Robert's children Robert James and Eliza.
Maria had five children of her own. Daughter Elizabeth McKibbon married William Fitzsimmons. Son William Humphrey McKibbon moved away and died in Seattle, Washington in 1935 (wife Hattie Lowe). Son Albert Ambrose McKibbon stayed in Merrickville. Daughter Ellen Theresa McKibbon married Albert Gorman. Daughter Margaret Ann McKibbon married Frederick S. McCrea.
The Perrin family came from Ireland and settled in Beckwith Township and later moved to Montague. Maria's parents are buried in Smiths Falls at Hillcrest Cemetery.
Sometime after the 1911 census Robert and Maria left Merrickville to live with their daughter Elizabeth Fitzsimmons in Ottawa.
Upon her death in Ottawa on March 1915, her daughter Elizabeth made the report. Their address was given as 263 Besserer Street, Ottawa. Maria's age was stated to be 84 years. She was brought back for burial in Merrickville.
Maria was predeceased by her daughters Margaret Ann McCrea (d. 1901) and Ellen Theresa Gorman (d. 1912).
She was survived by her son William Humphrey McKibbon (Seattle), son Ambrose McKibbon (Merrickville, ON) and daughter Elizabeth Fitzsimmons (Ottawa, ON). She was also survived by by her step children Robert James McKibbon (Cobden, ON) and Eliza Dempsey (Ramsayville, ON).
Maria was also survived by her husband Robert McKibbon who died later that year on November 5, 1915.
