Good afternoon, Mr. Scharf:
Thanks for your e-mail regarding your pioneer ancestors in Osgoode Township.
I have run across these names often in the 1800's in Osgoode Township. As a matter of fact, 
a lady named Elizabeth Stuart has contributed a wealth of material to the Osgoode Township 
Historical Society.
If you are related to her, she would have done a lot of work on the Stuart and related 
family names.
Their web site is located at .
I'd like to set up a new web page on our site ( Then we may hear from 
other researchers who can contribute information for us. Is this OK with you? Please let 
me know.
