July 21, 2006: Hello and hope all is well. I just wanted to inquire with respect to the Nixon page at the Bytown or Bust site. Adam Geddes is shown as married to Sarah Nixon at one point and then further down the page he is shown as married to Mary Ann Nixon. The headstone for Adam and Mary Ann is found at: Headstone, Elmview Cemetery, Kars, North Gower Township, Ontario Adam Geddes, died December 3, 1880, aged 69 years and 10 mos. Native of County Fermanagh, Ireland. Mary A. Nixon, wife of Adam Geddes, died July 19, 1896, aged 76 yrs. Just wondering if this is an error on the page that he married both sisters? Any clarification would be appreciated. Many thanks, Debbie Prince
New January 8, 2010: I have been doing some research on the Moodie Family, which was my Great Great Grandmother's side of the family. I found the Margaret Moodie ie. Maggie Moodie was a witness in the marriage of my Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother. She might be the daughter of James and Christina Moodie. I did find the pictures of the tombstones in the early cemetary in Gloucester Township (Riverside South) of my GG Grandparents. 002335-95 (Carleton Co): Samuel MULLIGAN, 31, farmer, Gloucester, Nepean, s/o Alexander MULLIGAN & Eliza LITTLE married Ida MOODIE, 21, Richmond, Gloucester, d/o James & Christina MOODIE. Wit: Samuel J. DAVIDSON of Nepean and Maggie MOODIE of Gloucester. July 24, 1895 at Ottawa. Hope this helps. ... Louise Milligan
