County Leitrim, Ireland to Bytown in 1822

New May 28, 2007:

Hi Al,        Robert Mosgrove was my husband's great granddad,  I thought this 
obit was most interesting.  We found it in the archives in Ottawa.  Have you 
seen the book Ottawa's Britannia?  It chronicles Napean,  and the town that 
used to be called Mosgrove.  The school is still there with the"Mosgrove" on 
the front and used as a private residence.  At least it was so a few years 
age when we were there.  Carolyn Mosgrove married William Henry Sixsmith and 
they lived at 310 Cooper St.  a house which now has a Heritage plaque on it. 
We had such an exciting time looking for addresses.  Judge William  Mosgrove 
lived in what is now Britannia and had vineyard and a winery.  The grape 
vines are perpetuated in the Environmental Gardens.   I have a picture of 
the taking down of the "Mosgrove St'" sign and putting up a new one.  I hope 
the obit makes it through to you OK, you will find it interesting, I am 
Marie Sixsmith
