Tombstone of Henry Diamond and Mary Kenney Buried at St. John the Evangelist Cemetery in Enniskerry, Ontario Tombstone of Henry Diamond and Mary Kenney
There was a DIAMOND family who came from County Limerick with the second Peter Robinson group in 1825. One of the sons was called "Henry". There were many ties between the Osgoode Township settlers and the Peter Robinson settlers over the years. This may be one. The Diamonds were friends and neighbours of the FINLAY family (2 farms away) Notre Dame Records: (same day trip to Bytown) 5 Jul 1845 Baptism of Martin, born 12 June of the marriage of Lawrence Finlay and Ann Finlay of Osgoode Township Witnesses: Martin Finlay & Mary Diamond 5 Jul 1845 Conditional baptism for John, born 28 June of the marriage of Martin Finlay and Mary Diamond of Osgoode Witnesses: Lawrence & Ann Finlay / Finley Source: Notre Dame records. 1881 Census Place: Osgoode Township, Russell County, Ontario, Canada Source: FHL Film 1375865 NAC C-13229 Dist 104 SubDist G Div 1 Page 54 Family 234 Sex Marr Age Origin Birthplace Occ Religion Hennery DIMON M M 60 Irish Ireland Farmer Catholic Mary DIMON F M 38 Irish Ireland Catholic Hennery DIMON M 17 Irish Ontario Catholic Henry jr. was baptized at the church at Enniskerry.

New July 5, 2015: Here is a nice example of a thorough record from St. John's Church at Ennikerry. We learn that St. Brigid's on the River Road was still a mission of St. John's in 1907. There are also some nice signatures for Richard Wallace, Catherine Diamond, Henry Nolan and Margaret / Maggie O'Brien
Richard Wallace and Catherine Diamond, marriage in 1907
