A Surname Inquiry


Joseph Fleming

 July 16, 2024

Joseph Fleming immigrated from Dumfries Scotland in 1877 with a large family group to Perry Township. Your note on the History of Perry Township mentions his family. They appear in the 1881 census and moved to Toronto in 1886. Just wondered if you had information on him or his dad William who died there in 1881?
