on the Rideau Canal, (Manotick),Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
April 16, 2013:
Along the Rideau Canal system today, south of Manotick, is a place called Kelly's Landing. It is across the River Road from Saint Bridgid's Church.
Next door, on the waterfront, is St. Bridget's Pioneer Cemetery where many Kellys are buried, including William Kelly who was working
on the construction of the Rideau Canal here in 1829.
