Gordon 1850+

Researching John Gordon and his wife Ann/Annie, who lived in Lanark village from 1864 on. Their oldest daughter Mary Ann, was born in 1865,in Lanark. Mary Ann was my Grandmother. Their house burnt, but have no idea of the date, but would be from 1865 to 1870. Later in the Census of 1871,it states that  Mrs. Annie Gordon died in childbirth. Have found the death notice of a baby boy, George Alexander Gordon, born in Nov,1870 and died in August 1871.My Grandmother would have been about 6 years of age at that time. Whether it was then, or, after the little boy died, my Grandmother was sent to live with an uncle near London , Ontario . Also in the church records in Perth , it states that a John Gordon married a Jean Craig from Lanark.  Their gravestones are in the Lanark Village cemetery. They went on to have a family of 3,and  my Grandmother was not brought back to Lanark to live. I think that there was also an Uncle John Gordon from Almonte, but no idea of the connections. Would like to hear from anyone that could help solve some of the missing links. Thank You.

Goth 1862+ Looking for the burial place for James Milton b. September 15, 1862 d. August 16, 1916 m. Mary Martha Allan. They moved to Regina. I understand that when James died his body was returned to Carleton Place. Belinda Allan .
Gould 1820+ My name is Robert (Bob) Gould and I have some information on the Gould Family that lived in Drummond township from about 1840 to I think1852 or 53. They were my ancestors that came out from Ireland John and Jane Gould. It looks like they lived on Concession 9 lot 4. They emigrated from Ireland in Cavan County and brought two children with them. William b 1836 and Robert 1838. Another son Arthur was born in Montreal on June 8 1840, so that must have been the year they landed in Canada and GGGrandmother Jane (Cooke) Gould would have been pregnant on the Boat coming over. They had two other boys that were born in Drummond Township, John 1843, and James 1849, two other girls were born after they moved into the Ottawa Valley in Renfrew County, Ross Township. Mary Ann b 1852 in Ross Township, and Mary Jane b 1858. I have had another contact with an individual that lives in Picton Ontario, that has traced his wife's Gould family to a Brother of John and his name was Richard. he also lived in Lanark County as well. ON the 1841 census is shows two Gould families from Ireland that live in Drummond a concession apart. The other was a James Gould that looks like they came out in 1820. I wonder if that is not a coincidence. it looks to close. Bob Gould .
Gould 1800+
I am researching the GOULD, HAYES, SIMPSON and WILSON families in Smith Falls, Beckwith Twp and surrounds.
 I have JASON GOULD, born 1801 in Roxbury, N.Y. married NANCY SIMPSON,  in 1834 in Smith Falls.  Nancy appears to have been born 1810 around Smith Falls.  Also an ELIZABETH SIMPSON, born 1788 is noted on a memorial stone in North Elmseley Twp, so is related somehow!
 Their son JAMES HENRY GOULD, b.1840 Smith Falls, married CATHERINE HAYES in 1867.  Catherine born 1839 in Smith Falls.
 Their son JOHN JAY GOULD, born 1876 in Smith Falls, reportedly married (?) ELIZABETH O'NEILL and had a son VANDA JAY GOULD.  I can find no record of a marriage or entry for birth of Vanda Jay (he did exist though!!)
 The name of WILSON is also within the family but am not sure how it fits in.
 Would anyone have ANY information of the above families.   Appreciate it very much.    Marie in Sydney Australia.

Graham c1820+ Armour b. 3-12-1798 m. Catherine (Jiles) Giles. Immigrated from Tyrone Co. IRE. Had a family of 9 children. Both are buried at St. Paul's in Lanark. Would like to hear from any descendants. Mary Ellen Marino .
Graham 1820-1860 Seeking information on William James Graham and/or wife Margaret, or any decendents.  Came to Lanark County sometime during period 1818-1822
from Scotland by way of St. Albans, Vermont.  Had at least one son, George,
born in St. Albans in October 1822.  Would assume they had more than one
child, but can find no records.  William had a homestead near Brockville.
His son George married Sarah Sanders in 1847 and they had six children in
Smith Falls during period 1847 - 1867.  Names of these six were Martha, Mary
A., William J(ames?), Andrew R., Thomas, and Eliza M.  George and two sons Thomas (aged 11) and Andrew left for America in 1867.  Have been unable to find any records on remaining children, or on William James or wife Margaret, both of whom presumably died in Smith Falls in mid-1800's.  Also possible George fathered a daughter, Sarah, in 1864 with Anne MORRISON.
Thanks very much for any information.

Greig 1865+
Greig: Seeking information on descendents of James R. Greig (b.c1865) and wife Sarah H. Grey (b.1870). James Greig was probably born in Carleton Place but newspaper notice of wedding (1896) says "of Cardinal, late of Montreal". Couple seems to moved to Iowa USA shortly after their marriage but there is some evidence James Greig was in Iowa as early as 1888. James Greig may be the son or nephew of Carleton Place lawyer Thomas Greig (1839-1888) or of Carleton Place bookseller James F. Greig (1831-1876). He may also have been of the same family as Alex E. Greig (b. c1840) of Carleton Place or Ramsay Township who became Dean of the University of Saskatchewan and married Jessie Shaw (c1870-1965).
