May 18, 2002:
George ROBB and his wife Belle CAMPBELL came from Aberdeen Scotland in the late 1870's
and settled in the Buckingham area of Quebec. 
Their eldest son, John, remained in Scotland. The remaining children came 
with them to Canada.

About 1880 they moved across the Ottawa River to the Cumberland / Russell area in Ontario.
By then, their daughter Ann had married James BURNS (my Great-Grandfather) from
nearby Osgoode Township.

May 15, 2007: Here is the death certificate for my GGrandmother, Annie Robb. It is witnessed by her son Terence Burns. She died at 96 Rochester Street in Ottawa where she was living with her daughter. Her husband, James Burns had died in 1907. Both Annie and James are buried at Our Lady of the Visitation, South Gloucester. The names of her parents are given by her son as being John Robb and Annie Morrison. However, family lore has it that her parents were George Robb and Belle Campbell. Two death certificates are shown below. The one on the right is definitely my GGrandmother. The one on the left MAY be her mother. The hunt continues. ····
