I am looking for whatever info, as a newspaper obit or notice of death in particular, I can find on Edward Thomson. He lived in the Medora area, primarily west of Port Carling from 1871-1911. A land map of Medora (circa 1800's) shows he had land there adjacent to Wm Larway (bro-in-law).

Edward was b. Nov. 1828 in Scarborough and d. Nov 1911 Lot 15, Concession E, Medora. I don't know if he was buried in the area, which would be interesting to know also. He married Mary Larway in London, Ont. in 1859 but she appears to have died btwn 1861-1871. Where she died and is buried is unkwn. I don't know if there were any children, which is part of what I'm trying to find.

Census records show him as a widower living in:
1871: Edward Thompson, age 37, Muskoka, Humphry & Medora
Note: age is way off, so not 100% certain of record
1881: Edward Thomson, age 52, Muskoka, Wood & Medora
1891: Edward Thomson, age 62, Simcoe E., Medora & Wood.
1901: Edward Thomson, age 72, Simcoe E., Medora & Wood.
1911: Edward Thompson, age 82, Muskoka, Medora

Thank you,
