RE: James William Craigie
Sandra, I am unsure of what message I sent you. I dont save my sent messages. What was the message? While on subject of Craigie you might want to look at this I found in Book about Brant Co Ontario John Carnie, Paris, Builder and Mason, is a native of Aberdeen Scotland, having been born there on 7th August 1819. His parents were Alexander and Margaret Carnie, both also natives of Scotland. The father, who was a farmer and miller, was born in 1782, died in Scotland in 1852, and the mother was born in 1792. She left her native land on the death of her husband and came to Canada, where she took up residence with her son John at Paris until the day of her death which occured in 1862. John Carnie was married, August 7th, 1850, to Margaret Craigie, daughter of George Craigie, and born in Scotland July 17th, 1826. Both are members of the Congregational Church, in which he has held the office of Deacon for 23 years. He has also been a Town Councillor for several years, is a member of the Board of School Trustees, and holds a Commission as Justice of the Peace. He settled in Paris in 1843 and has remained there until the present day. In 1867 Mr. Carnie invented the hot air furnace so generally in use for the purpose of ventilating and warming public buildings, etc., and he has been engaged all his life in building and masonry, in which he has been very successful, to be attributed in a great measure to his industry and affable and agreeable manner. The family of Mr. and Mrs. C consists of six children--Mary E (wife of O.R.Whitty), John, Alexander, George C, Maggie, and Charles." Page 656,657 from The History of the County of Brant, Ontario: containing a history of the County, its townships, cities, towns, schools, churches.. This George Craigie 1782-1874 should be the father of James Craigie 1824-1904. Some records indicate George buried Brant Co Ont. Also the Whitty mentioned is really spelled Whitby who married Mary F Craigie. Both buried Paris..Mike
