New April 27, 2011:

Greetings Al!

I recently came across a 2008 post on Bytown or Bust in which you were writing about William Garrett.

What I noticed was your comment:
=====
Now, here's one of great interest to me!
13 Aug 1848
Baptism of Mary, born 16 April of the marriage of James Doyle and Helen Kilby of Osgoode
sponsors: William Garrett & Eliza Doyle (married)
======

Mary Doyle eventually married Matthew Patrick O'Connor.
Their son, Daniel Patrick (m. Gertrude Pearl Dolan) was my grandfather.

I've been working on both James Doyle and Helen (Ellen) Kilby, and wonder if you have anything on the Kilby 
family ancestors.

PS I have a great James/Ellen picture; I can email it if you're interested. (see below)
