Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am looking for the immigraion records of William Muir b 1826 Scotland died in Barrie Simcoe co Ontario 1904 married to Elizabeth ( Dyer ) Muir b 1837 England died in Barrie Simcoe co Ontario 1907 .
In the 1901 census there last name is moor it said they came to Canada in 1856
Hannah Eliza b 1858 died in 1876,
William John b 1861
Mary Jane b 1862,
Laurence Josiah b.1865
Frederick George b 1867
Thomas Henry b 1869
Josephine b 1874,
Hannah Mariah b 1876 She married John Thomas Armstong in 1896. In 1896 Roy Armstrong was born he's my dad
Elizabeth Lillien b 1880 married to Robert Prince I need those records to find out what town in Scotland he came from He first lived in Innisfil Muskoka then Barrie
And Roy had a brother Roy in USA? I think we need to start a posting just on Roy, his parents and his siblings
My dad is Roy Armstrong son of John Armstrong and Hannah Muir
His half bother is Roy Armstrong son of John Armstrong and Mary Lacourt of Wisconsin
I believe he's in a lumber camp with his Uncle Fredrick Muir . That's where John Thomas Armstrong worked. His love letters said John worked with his bother in law Fredrick. When John left might have left dad in care of Fredrick and on his in listment papers list Fredrick Muir as next of kin I have no proof of this but that letter
5425 William and Margaret A* are the parents of JOHN THOMAS A* who married Hannah MUIR (who was called Ida) in about 1895 or 96. The Armstrongs and the Muirs lived in Minesing, Ontario. The family story was that John and Hannah (Ida) were not married; the guess is that they were not married when she became pregnant with their son, ROY who was born March 29, 1895 but married just before or just after his birth. John was killed in a lumbering accident at Frank's Bay when Roy was a baby. John was working for the Smith lumbering company at the time of his death. Roy married Clara Lillian HARVEY in about 1922. It is thought that William and Margaret did come to Ontario from Ireland, but it is not known from when or where they came. Does anyone have any info on William and Margaret?
I guess this shows why family stories need to be taken with a grain of salt
If he ever did work there here is a bit of hitory on the mine http://www.pastforward.ca/perspectives/Jan_52001.htm
It sure goes to show how much false info is online - that was only reason I posted that posting I found online. And people just copy it for truth sometimes.
John Thomas Armstrong is G.F. Muir 's botherinlaw and Roy is G.F. Muir's nephew
Was GF Muir not who Roy was with in 1901 census (Hannah's brother or Roy's uncle). I know he was with the Muir family.

There is a thread on just Hannah here
and one on John here
Who are you? Are we related?
I am in no way connected to the family but as many of us have over the years got to know John looking for Hannah.
As for William all we know is born Cty of Sligo Ireland about 1881, father Richard Armstrong and Mother Margaret Mccleary
