May 10, 2004: Hi I somehow stumbled onto your notation listed regarding Major family questions. I too have many questions about this family, as I am one, but I have next to no starting point. What info do you possess regarding that Matthew Major family you listed besides the LDS listing? I think (I am pretty sure) that the Thomas listed in that family is in my direct line. Let me know what you know if possible, thanks Todd Major
New May 14, 2004 Hi Al: I noted the references to the Major family of Torbolton Township. I have already just recently corresponded with Karen and Todd Major. Al you might remember me as the one who supplied the information on Joseph Fortune and Mary Story regarding Joseph surveying Richmond Ontario. Small world. Glen Porteous P.S. There is a book in the Ottawa Public Library on the Catholic Major families of Carleton county. Been a long time since I have seen it. It is located in the Ottawa room if my memory serves me correctly. None of my Protestant Major family members were in it.

E-mail Karen, Todd Major, Glen Porteous and Al Lewis
