William Thomas Bell
Birth 14 May 1854 in Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Death 10 Oct 1924 in Huntsville, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada

Death record indicates he is buried in Presbyterian Cemetery near Huntsville. I'm trying to figure out if this would St Andrews which is north of Huntsville or another. From what I have been able to discover is there is a stone reading 'Bell' within the cemetery but no other names or dates given

I want to search historical copies of the Amalguin Newspaper that was produced in Burks Fall. Does anyone know where the microfiche might be located. I have placed telephone calls to the Library in Burks Falls, thinking it would logically be located there, however, the persons I spoke to didn't know and the person who may know never returned my telephone enquiries. I live in Wasaga Beach so can't just pop by and check in person. Thank you for your assistance.

Can you please tell me who Rankin Lake was named after? I know that a Charles Rankin surveyed a LOT of land in the area and further away ... however my ancestors, Matthew Rankin and his sons, James, William, Samuel, Henry, Frederick, etc. were involved in a LOT of what went on in the early stages of Foley's/Parry Sound/Barrie's settlement.

Respectfully,

Darcy Sullivan

Good day.
I am a volunteer with the Muskoka Steamship & Historical Society, and I have been writing a series of articles for the Society magazine on Railway History in Muskoka. I am interested in connecting with anyone who might have information, stories and/or photos related to this subject.
Thank you.
