My ancestorial family Markle settled in the Huntsville, Parry Sound area. I am new to ancestry searches and would welcome other family contacts.......James Aseph Markle was the father of my Grandfather William Sidney Markle. I would appreciate contact from the family members still living in Huntsville area. I have an Uncle George and Aunt Mary, Richard (Dick) Markle, and cousins Still in the area to my knowledge.

looking for any information on my great great grandfather, Charles McDevitt born 1 Aug 1841 in Ireland and died 1 Jun 1907 in Parry Sound.
He was the light house keeper at Point Au Baril 1897-1907
He married Jane Elizabeth Grace and had 12 children

I have found much of what is available on the internet, (census info, etc) so I am really looking for people who may have known the family, who might be able to share pictures or stories about what kind of people they were.

I am searching for information on George Miller of Muskoka/Parry Sound.
He was married to Olive (Olise) and they had two or three children, one born around 1899 named Roy (my grandfather).
I have no other information on this side of my family as my grandfather Roy died in 1945 and my grandmother doesn't remember much about his family.

Nelson, Joseph & Thursay (Theresa) Mahalia Moore & Ester (Essie/Essa) Wainwright

Judy Barrette-Flint

Can anyone help me? I am having one devil of a time finding info thru regular internet files for Joseph Nelson born abt 1836 in Canada and wife #1 Thursey (Theresa) Mahalia Moore b abt 1841 in USA, and their children (1)Isabella abt 1855-?, (2) William John 1858-1919 (I have quite a bit of info on him) (3) Joseph 1865-1968 (also have quite a bit of info on him) (4) Elizabeth Ann abt 1866-? (5) Martha Jane abt 1868-? (she married Charles Rogers in Toronto in 1889 and then I lose her) (6) Catherine N. Nelson 1870-? (7) Mary Mahalia 1873-?.

>>In 1861 census family lives in Seneca Twp, Haldimand Cty, Canada West

>>In 1871 census they live in Morrison, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada.

Somewhere between 1871 and 1881 I think Wife #1 died (I can’t find her death reg) and Joseph remarried to Ester/Essa/Essie Wainwright (b abt 1855 Ireland) abt 1877 (can’t find their marriage reg.). They have 2 children together: (1) Edith 1878-? (2) Thomas George 1880-?.

>>In 1881 census family lives in Gravenhurst, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada and Joseph is a Court Bailiff (has been in this occupation sometime before daughter Edith was born)

>>After 1881 I can’t seem to find most members of the family, except for William John (who stays in the Muskoka-Parry Sound area for life) and Joseph Jr. (who lives in Lambton Cty, Ontario for a time, then back to Parry-Sound-Muskoka for rest of his life).

I believe that Joseph Nelson Sr. is my GGG Uncle, brother of Susanna (Nelson) Duncan, and my GG Grandmother Isabella (Nelson) Robinson. They would all have been born in Esquesing Twp, Halton Cty, Ontario to John Nelson & Isabella Warren. Joseph & Thursey/Theresa lived right next door to Susanna & Thomas Duncan in 1861 & 1871 census, which leads me to believe that they were probably related and moved to Muskoka area together. Later, when my GG Grandfather, Samuel Robinson died, my GG Grandmother Isabella (Nelson) Robinson moved to Muskoka area as well—would make sense if she had siblings living there already.

Is anyone familiar with this family and can head me off in the right direction? I have searched in Lambton Cty, Ontario, where son Joseph Jr. lived for a time, but had no luck there. I found an Essie Nelson, age 65, living with her sister in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, USA in 1920 USA Census – she has been a widow of 2 years and immigrated to USA in 1882 and is naturalized (because birthplace listed as Ireland, can’t tell where she immigrated from—Ireland or Canada)

Much appreciation to anyone who can offer some assistance here.
