RE: John & Priscilla Adelaide
You probably know my brother Hugh McCulloch then, as he is very active in the Perth and Smith Falls theatre groups. Still works for his ex father in law Jim Deacove (Family Pastimes) out in Brooke Valley. Hugh just bought the old boatworks on the left before you enter Port Elmsley on the way to Perth and lives there with two of his four kids. There's a picture of him with my mom visiting our Smith cousins at the old stonehouse just down the road from the cemetery. See the photo gallery for Joyce McCulloch on

I will try to make it down to the next celebration as I usually take my leave in the month of August.

I just put up a picture of my gg grandmother Priscilla with the picture of the headstone and will see if I have any more for the Ripley cemetery. I certainly have some more ancestors in Halladay and will put up their photos shortly.

John & Priscilla Adelaide
Hello Kim

Congratulations to you and all who have worked so hard on the Ripley Cemetery restoration. John & Priscilla Smith were my maternal great great grandparents.I would like to donate $150 to the restoration efforts as I noticed on my last visit some stones still lying down on the ground on the western edge nearest Hwy 15 (specifically John's mother, Mary (nee Morris) Smith and her mother's stone as well, Jane (nee ?) Morris.
I am active on Ancestry.Com and have the entire Smith Family of Leeds and their many connections up now (with many photographs) for all to see on a public tree. My mother Joyce Margaret (nee Macpherson) McCulloch was the first cousin of the late Anna (nee Smith) Charland and visited the graveyard and Smith farmhouse just down the road several times. Two of his sisters, Jennie and Minnie married Horner brothers,both railwaymen, and his older brother, John jr (who marred an Earl) all went west to Alberta.
I have a great picture of Priscilla visiting with all her Smith and Horner grandchildren in Edmonton, Alberta, circa 1912, one of which was my grandmother Ida Smith Horner.
One of my brothers lives in Arnprior and the other quite close to Elgin, Port Elmsley. I will ask them if they would like to help out in some way. In the meantime please send your mailing address and I will forward a cheque.

RE: James Hunkins
I made sure everything is ok to receive your e-mails. I would love to hear more about James and his wife. I know a little story about him. He was one of the families that adopted children that was sent, I think it was from Ireland, to Canada. His son, James, found his sisters that were sent before him. They were in Canada and they were adults. Evidently, his mother died very early and left his father with two girls and one son. He couldn't take care of them and didn't have the money. He first sent the girls to be servants but for James, I think he was a small baby, he made provision to have him adopted. I have a picture of them together. It was a neat story. I heard it from one of my other family members.

RE: Ripley Cemetery Committee
Hi Kim,
Yes, I am part of the Hunkins family not a direct decendent of James. I am writing a book about the Hunkins family that's how I found him. I am retired and living on our SS so I can make a small donation of $150 toward your project. It's a great thing that you do. I would love to join you but I live in San Antonio, TX. Let me know where to send the check. Any more information you have on James' family would be great. He was married to an Angie, I think. I'm not sure where she is buried possibly one of the stones you were mentioned that were buried. Here is my e-mail for futher updates on your project.
