When making a request for information, it is always best to give some approximate dates, so that the volunteer look-ups know where to start.

The was a real over-sight on my part - I'm sorry.
The Gemmills moved from Lanark Co. to Huron Co. in the mid 1850s.
The ones I am most interested in are:
Margaret b.1852 m. John W. Jackson
Robert David Gemmill b. 1872 in Huron Co. Robert's parents were Alexander and Grace. Am looking for any info.
R.D. Gemmill bought Belden's livery stable in January of 1897 but I can't find him after that. Also looking for a death record for his mother Grace. Alexander re-married about 1880 to Betty Locke Powell and had three more sons that went to Manitoba.
Name has various spellings - Gemmel , Gemmell, Gammel, Gemmill

Hi Laurie,
My greatgrandfather sister was Betty Locke Powell born Feb, 11, 1856 Exeter Huron County, Ontario. Both her parents died at an early age and went to live with Tom Kemp Powell in Turnberry. Do you know the names of her three sons? I saw her name in a golden wedding annoucement Mrs. B Gemmill from Pilot Mound.

Please send a reply.

Thanks Bruce Powell

Hi! I am the gggrand-daughter of Benjamin (Glasbury) Gemmill 1865-1950, who was adopted by John D. Gemmill and Eliza Epplett. I have traced them to St. Clair, Michigan in the 1880 census where John was a millwright. Benjamin grew up to marry Sarah Stothers Epplett. Sarah's first husband was Eliza's younger brother, John James Epplett(1851-1884). Benjamin Glasbury was a British Home Child and I am trying to find out how he came to be with John and Eliza. Can anyone here help me??? Thank you for looking,

Hi Heather, I've gone through the Turnberry Township History book but don't find any mention of Benjamin. Do you know where he died or is buried? There is an article on John & Eliza Gemmill but it only talks about the steam sawmill fire in July 1875.

Sorry I can't help further.
