Thanks to Ellen Paul for contributing her research to this page.
I was on your site last night and found one of my relatives, James McBride.
Would you know where I can get more information on the Stratford and McBride
families of Carleton, Nepean. Is there someone actively looking for the Stratford's?
I believe that John Stratford would be on the McCabe list but everytime I tried to
access this list I failed to bring it up.
I have been working with the McBride group for sometime I have lots of information
I could also contribute. Miles McBride, James 's father came to this area in 1828
from Ireland. He had 9 children, his first wife was Mary Burns and he later married
Mary Madden-Shechy / (Sheedy?). I have accounted for 4 of the children but I am still
searching for the other 5.

was married to bridget O'Day and they're in the 1851 census in Nepean.
thanks for anything you can share with me.

Hi Anne-Marie and Mitchell,
I just found your posting of July 17, 2003 when you were
talking about looking about for McBride descendants. My grandparents, Thomas McBride
and Ellen Kealey, lived on what is now the Ottawa airport. I think this is Gloucester. (yes)
I would like to hear from you. Thanks, Barb Verner

I have a Francis McBride in our family lineage who married Rose Ann (Swain)
born about 1846(married on May 06 1867 at Holy Cross Kemptville Mission
Church, Ontario to Francis McBride, born in Ontario about 1845 ?.
Rose Ann (Swain) Mc Bride died in June 28, 1865 buried in Holy Cross
Cemetery Kemptville next to her parents Michael & Mary Swain
( my great great grandparents). She left behind a daughter Mary McBride
born in 1868, who was brought up by Michael & Mary Swain her grandparents.
Mary McBride married 15 August 1887 to Desire Velcour / Valcour, this is all the info I have on her.
Could there be a connection to your McBride's?

found a missing link to one of my Grand Father's Sister's.
15. iv. THOMAS CONWAY MCBRIDE, b. January 7, 1911, Ottawa, Ontario,
Canada; d. October 2, 1964, Whittier, California, USA 53 Years old
All I knew of my Tom C McBride was that he moved from this Ottawa Area
down to California or Florida, USA?
Two Day's ago my Uncle called to tell me he found some information,
Tom had two sister's one name Eileen who married a ? Cole the other was a
Dorothy married to a ? Roy.
If this Thomas Conway McBride is my Tom he married
Marie Louise Yvette Thomas Dit Tranchemontagne.
I do not have the marriage date and only know that Yvette was born
in Rockland Ontario supposedly died in Texas, USA. No proof of Death either for me.
Anything would help

lived in Pontiac Michigan, USA.
5. Mary Quinn b. 1900 and I'm not exactly sure when she died it was between 1958 and 1964. She
married Ed Dann and they lived in Detroit Michigan. Mary and Dan (Ed?) had no children.
6. William (Billie) Quinn b. 1902 and died in 1954. Billie never married and travelled
from New York to San Francisco making a living as a chef.

back to Patrick BLANEY, ML# 90
I googled "Canadian genealogy Blaney" and came across "Miles McBride also Patrick
Blaney". I clicked on it and near the bottom is a heading "Patrick Blaney from
County Antrim". An email dated April 27 2005 from Cathy Martin mentioning Patrick
and sisters Ellen and Elizabeth, well this is part of my family. I would like
to contact her.
my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance.
Note: This Patrick Blaney was Catholic and settled in the Kingston area. According
to the 1829 McCabe List he had two brothers back in County Antrim, near Balleymoney.
His brothers' names were William Connor and Edward. There were also many Protestant Blaneys
who settled in the townships to the East of Ottawa.

My father was born in Windsor, Ontario in 1913. I believe his father was Joseph McBride

Would love to chat with anyone who's interested.
