McINTOSH, Jane  Section B could be our Jane, as often if both names are down they can be transcribed as both
However we also have this one in that section:  McINTOSH, Agnes M.
No Christine Webster listed at all
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hmmmm.Just did a bigger look through and there are LOTS of other surnames in section B so it is a large area within the cemetery methinks...

That's very interesting, because the McIntosh'es came from Aberdeenshire...

I shall check on that when I return from visiting the in-laws  :-X

Thanks Karen.... :)

Oh, yes, Elspit...forgot that was another abbrev. for Elizabeth...George was the watchmaker in nearby Garafraxa / Fergus...That's why I figured he was related, as some of the family had worked for a watchmaker in England before moving to Canada. ( He was with a "May" in 1852, so not sure if both are one in the same person...children George Jr. also a watchmaker & Susan... )


also if someone could look into those 2 publication there may be more information on the family

Here's a great publication!  The Province of Ontario Gazetteer and Directory 1869
http://books.google.ca/books?id=z6wOAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage#PPP1,M1

Francis a teamster, so business slowed for hauling by horse & cart? as soon railway goes through & he buys Hotel from brother...who on here owns the Hotel he recently built... and George, watchmaker in Fergus...

I know you'll see Samuel Webster the tinsmith, & he wasn't husband to Christine...She might have been an unmarried sister, but we never did place her either...Seems the less you know about people  = the less you'll find...
Ugh No..silly me, she's a widow on the censuses...so sister in law

Am really quite put out!  The Knox Church have replied to me, saying they can't help me, due to Freedom of Info & Privacy Laws!!!

I did email her back, and maybe she might help me further...but that seems obsurd!

Unless it confirms that it WAS an illigimate birth, and that's why she won't tell me?

Hi Daisy,

No, that's the norm here now, well at least the past few years.  I tried to get my dad's baptism for him and was told the same thing, needless to say I got it in the end referring his comments to her  ;D

Did you look at those marriages I pm'd you?

Karen, I must confess, I saw them yesterday, and forgot all about them..   :-[ :-\ .I shall have a closer look tonight though.

There must be connections though...

Thank you for still looking...

When I emailed her back, I asked if permission/letter from Margaret's grandson would help get the info...

How silly though, things being kept quiet still after over 100 years.

Just had another thought...I am sure I saw another Christina McIntosh somewhere on the census's...can't remember which one, but could we find a McIntosh/Webster marriage? This could explain the relationship of NEICE in the 1891 census, where Christina Vickers was living with Christina Webster.

Added: I have had a look, but can't find anything...I can't frind Christina in the 1871 census either. Grrrr....

Karen you are amazing...so the most that Jane & she might have been would be cousins, then perhaps...Oh, my...
but was she born to a brother or sister....

The only one on the IGI is a Margaret, Oct 17th, 1824 ...Rhynie And Essie, Aberdeen, Scotland
parents William McIntosh and Ann Spence...

Ooops just looked at the 1891 again, tho, and Christina Webster was 75 then so born circa 1816  :-\
