Tombstone of Henry Diamond and Mary Kenney
Buried at St. John the Evangelist Cemetery in Enniskerry, Ontario
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)

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
