Hello,

I have just begun researching my McMartin ancestry, and I am looking for information on the family of Edward McMartin b. around 1881 in Martintown, Ontario. Edward McMartin married Alphosine Brunet sometime around the turn of the century, and they had the following children: Henry, George, Alex, John, Arthur, Edward, William, Donald, Gladys (O'Neil), Alice (Villeneuve), Annabel (Benoit), Delmia (Godard, and Mary. I would be extremely grateful if anybody with information on this line of the McMartin's could contact me.

Take Care,

Jason McMartin

O'Neil link?

I am researching the O'Neil's who lived in the Stormont Dundas Glengary county. My understanding is their home was somewhere in the Cornwall area.

My greatgrandfather was named Edward - he married a Mina (Elmira is another name that pops up) Kyer in that area. He had the following children: Evert (known as Roy W. - born 1908 and worked as a police officer and detective in Ottawa), Ernest (a boxer?), Lloyd (lived in Hamilton), Allan (presumed the youngest) and A SISTER NAMED GLADYS. My grandfather was able to speak French as well as English.

I am wondering if there may be a link with Gladys O'Neil as this name was not common then.

I am looking for a Marie Alice Brunet who married a Thomas Chretien in 1859 in Notre Dame, Ottawa. Her parents were Pierre Brunet and Adelaide Sigouin. I believe they may have been from Glengarry co. Do you have any more info on the Brunet or Sigouin (Seguin) families from this area?

Hello!
I hope I am not barking up a wrong tree, but my former mother-in-law was born Oct 19, 1901 Gladys O'Neil. I don't know who her parents were. I believe she was born in Kansas but she married Joseph Eldon Moore and had the following children: Wanda, Laurel, Thomas and Ruth. Joe died in 1980 and they had lived in Nyssa, Oregon for many years. After Joe died, Gladys remained at that home. She passed away in March of 2002 at the age of 100 years and 5 months. I know she had a brother by the name of Everet who lived in Washington State. When Gladys celebrated her 100th birthday, her son Thomas told me that she had family that even came from Canada. I don't know if this is the correct family, but it's worth a shot. Somewhere in the back of my mind a maiden name of Adams is involved, but I can't remember is she said that was her mother's maiden name or her husband Joe's mother's maiden name. Any help would be appreciated.

Surnames: O'NEIL, KYER, PHILLIPS, PRICE
Hi there - since my post I have linked with family members - Evert Roy was my Grandfather and I have since learned his parents Mina Kyer and Edward O'Neil. His sisters were Ethel, Lillian and Myrtle (died young) bros. Loyd and Lorne. As well I have learned that Edward Henry O'Neil's parents were Margaret Phillips and Patrick O'Neil - Patrick's parents were Patrick Sr. and Jane Price. This family settled in the Cornwall areas and several moved back and forth from the States - they emmigrated from Ireland during the famine in our about 1847-48 thereabouts. It does not appear we have the same family line directly, however, the more I learn the more I find connections. If you have an O'Neil line I would be keen on seeing it and checking if it links somehow. I do appreciate you taking the time to respond - every bit and piece really helps untangle the family lines - there were only a few original O'Neil's to Canada so the US links are very important given the movement with work and learning trades etc. Also, when the names repeat - it is often a link as the same family first names were often used. If you have more information - let me know directly if you have time - I maintain a second data base of links - not yet tied into my main family but developing and O'Neil database for others as well.

Thanks again - M

Marlene: Thanks for your quick reply. I am not an O'Neil, nor do I have any O'Neil's in my direct line. I am merely doing the research for my former husband, who's mother was an O'Neil.
Thanks again.

Hi
A Marty (I assume Martin) McMartin lived next door to us in Martintown ON. He never married, was a farmer and made maple sugar. He died in the early 1970's at approx 75 - 80 years old. His sister (also unmarried) lived with for a time before her death. I would imagine these are of the same McMartin family you are looking for

I received certification as a Loyalist descendant of John McMartin U.E. of Martintown, Ontario. I have on file extensive data on the Grant & McMartin families; principal founders of Martintown. Please confirm — who are the parents of Edward McMartin b. circa 1881?

George, the son of Edward & Alphosine McMartin; did George use the surname spelling MacMartin? Is George buried at the North Branch Cemetery, Martintown, Ontario?

May we exchange data?
