Bio Photo The various branches of my tree that I am researching are: Oliphant, Peer, Kivell, Nancekivell, Glover, Hendershot and Scofields.

For some time now I have been recording the history of Halton's earliest settlers to the present day, through the local cemeteries.

Please feel free to use my photographs, I take my photo's so that others can enjoy them, and include them in their family history if they wish.

Mark Switzer
Samuel Switzer
Hi Patricia,
You have referenced a marriage between Samuel Switzer (memorial 134433876) and Mary Sparrow as occurring in the year 1796 in the Diocese of Cashel & Emly, Ireland. Are you able to cite the source of this marriage record? Please advise... Thank you.

Hello Patricia,
You have included a middle and maiden name in your post that is not present on the grave monument. What documents do you have that indicate these are in fact correct? Were you able to view city papers or other such items, can you cite them?
Thank you,

Leonard Howson & Alice Scott
There is an article (part of a series) about the John Howson (1775-1859) Ann Foster (1776-1829)family Lot 5 Concession 8 in which the it refers to a brother, Leonard Howson. I quote: "Leonard Howson, a brother of John I, came to the Hornby area in 1842 with his wife Alice Scott and family. Daughter Jane married William Brownridge. Son John married Margaret Riley and farmed Lot 20, Conc. 8 of Equesing. Son William married Margaret Carmichael and went to Redwing in Grey County. A descendant, Ray Howson, is a retired bank manager residing in Georgetown. Robert married Elizabeth Hall. Brothers James and Joseph married Brown sisters from the 9th Line and settled in Huron County."

I am looking for the graves of Leonard Howson & Alice Scott or any info about them in Halton area. I have put the info for son William & wife Margaret Carmichael on findagrave for Thornbury & Clarkson Union Cemetery. Any help appreciated.

Correction to Duncan Campbell
Hello Patricia:

Much of the information about Duncan Campbell and Janet MacGregor is incorrect. Duncan was born 8 Jan 1769 in Kenmore in Perthshire. His father was Archibald Campbell (c 18 Jul 1738 in Lawers in Kenmore). I have proven his ancestry back to around 1623. His people were all of the townships of Lawers and Croftnalin in Kenmore.

The children and their dates quoted are mostly correct. In any case they are all solidly documented in the church records of Kenmore Church (the Duncan William Campbell 1821-1906 should be just Duncan Campbell). James Campbell ( - 1864) was of no relation.

At least four of the children accompanied (or preceded) Duncan Campbell and Janet MacGregor to Canada in 1833: Elizabeth (married to John Anderson emigrated in 1821), Janet, Isabel and Archibald. There are solid records of the four buried in either the Boston Presbyterian Church cemetery or the Pioneer cemetery in Acton.

The last child Duncan, in fact, emigrated with his wife Christina MacGregor in 1849. They are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in Amherstburg.

The Argyll and Bute, Scotland info refers to some other person.

Jane McDowell (nee Bell)
You have a funeral card for Jane Bell-McDowell and also a picture. I was wondering where you got it? I have the same card and also the same picture in a family bible.
My picture does not have a name on it. I was just wondering if you are certain of the name on the photo so I may document mine.
I always thought it was a picture of Susannah Dunbar, mother of Jane Bell or possibly William Bell's second wife. William was also a son of Susannah Dunbar and Hugh Bell.

Catherine Allen Acton Pioneer Cemetery
Hello Patricia,
Thanks for a wonderful picture of this gravestone. In your description you state that Catherine's stone is one stone away from her maternal grandmother Rachel Steel(e). In my research of this family I have never been able to find proof of which Steel family would be her grandparents. Catherine's mother was Mary Anne Steel(e). The only Steel family I could find in the area was William Steel but I have not been able to find a census or other information to confirm that Mary Anne was his daughter. Could you direct me to the information that you might have ?
Thanks so much for your work.

Re: Wm E. McCready
Find A Grave Memorial# 116585048
Thank you for posting the wonderful and clear photo of the McCready gravestone.
In my research, I discovered that William's birth date was in fact, Sep 4, 1864. I can see how easy it would be to see 1884 in the photo.
