Burgess, Bala, Ontario 1901 onwards - Completed but still ongoing
« on: Monday 26 January 09 12:22 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I've been looking through some of my 'bits and pieces'

I'm trying to trace what happened to some of my Canadian cousins after August 1902. I have an Indenture of a sale of land in Medora, Muskoka, Ontario of this date.

The  cousins are - Alexander McTaggart Burgess, Medora, physician and Thomas Burgess, sawmiller, of Medora. The indenture was also signed by another cousin  William Burgess, barrister at law, of  Port Elgin, Ontario ( I have information on William's line).

Alexander and Thomas were the sons of Thomas Burgess, who had recently died.  (death - 27 April 1901)

The land was sold for 75 dollars to a George Hinton, Toronto, Inspector of the City Dairies.

Other info ~

Hi Gadget,

I found Helen Burgess' marriage to Charles Roushorne in 1920 in Bala.

Edith's marriage to Thomas Jewitt in 1915 in Bala and

Katharine's marriage to Harold White in 1924 in Toronto.

Thank you so much, Karen  :D

So far, Alexander seems to have remained single (to 1911) and still looking for James K  :-\

Looks like John Burgess married the lodge Kate in 1906.
