Robert Elliott of Utterson, James Henry Elliott & Mary Oddessa Porter of Utterson Lived at the corner of Old Muskoka road & Stephenson Road 4. When did they move to Utterson? I believe it was either 1898 or 1903,the family members and where they might be.

Robert Elliot and Mary Fallowfield were married 11 Sept 1871 in Audrain, Missouri USA. The record doesn’t give any more information and does not mention being married at the bride’s house which was mentioned on some of the other marriage records. What were they doing in Missouri? Did not find them on 1870 US census. Robert Elliot, b about 1847,Port Hope Ont, died 4 Jan 1925 of chronic endocarditis. A death registration of Mary Fallowfield Elliot is dated 2 July 1910. Died of stomach cancer.Gives age as 65 with birth year c 1845. Lot 13 Concession 5 Stephenson. Mary’s maiden name was Fallowfield. Did not find any headstones for them. James Henry and Mary Proctor married 1911. Children of James and Mary from ancestry.caMary Revina, b 3 Oct 1913, lot 13 Conc 5, Stephenson Tsp. Parents married 1 Nov 1911 at Huntsville.Birth registrations are only released up to about 1915 and the covid has interfered with releases I think. I did not find any more children of James and Mary. James died 1955 and Mary died 1973 re headstones in Stephenson Memorial Cemetery. An obituary would likely give you some family names.Here we go!
