John Gerrath's
Patrick Family Line
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, this line has expanded to massive proportions thanks to new contacts with several cousins over the Internet. The Patricks, who emanated from the Glasgow area around 1800 and settled in Ontario, Canada in 1844, are not well known to my branch of the family (usually thought of as Grahams). Imagine my surprise when I received messages from some Michigan cousins who had stumbled upon my small corner of the Web! These hardy and numerous Patricks (long a Graham family rumour) populate most of northern Michigan and even include some "Youpers".

Jane FREEBORN [Parents] "Jennie" was born on 19 Dec 1868 in Mornington Twp, Perth, Ontario, Canada. She died in Apr 1918 in Manitoba, Canada. She was buried in Plumas, Manitoba, Canada. She married John Charles BUCHANAN on 7 Jan 1891 in Elma Twp, Perth, Ontario, Canada.

John Charles' daughter Jennie says "My dad, John Charles Buchanan, brought his wife Jennie (Freeborn) and their 9 surviving children to McCreary from Plumas in the spring of 1910. Seldon, the youngest, was born at McCreary" - quoted from McCreary: Milestones and Memories, 1987 page 237.

They were married in Atwood, ON, Canada

or born 1874 sccordingh to Jean Whyte Buchanan.

Possibly related?
Millbank - The first settler was John Freeborn in 1847. He built a mill on the edge of a bank. Voila!
Source: Ontario Place Names, p. 138; Reveries of a Pioneer: Mornington, p. 31.

The 1861 census of Mornington Twp, Perth, ON has several Freeborn families.

Connected?
The 1871 census shows Robert Freeborn - 35 and Eliza - 32 both born in Ireland- Methodist w/children Mary Jane- 7 Eliza Ann - 6/ James-4/ Robert- 2 and Frederick-1 all born in Canada & living at L 15 C 7.
-
The 1861 census shows 2 Freeborn strays living with the family of William Rutherford at L 16 C 8. Robert is 23 -single-labourer-Methodist-born in Scotland
& Ellen Freeborn -73-widow- Methodist born Scotland.
I would suggest that this is probably your Robert despite the difference in birth place and there seems a strong possibility that Mrs. Rutherford was a Freeborn.

I have got 1898 for Violet in my notes, not 1896. That's for the birth and death year. Unfortunately I have no footnotes whatsoever, which leads me to believe that I probably extracted the data from the 1970 "Buchanan Family Tree" by Lorne and Doris Buchanan.
I'd also be interested to hear if anyone can confirm or deny this.

I found Violet listed on page 4-13 of the Buchanan Family Tree book, with the 1898 dates and Plumas, Manitoba.

Hi Bill:
Indeed Violet Buchanan was born January 7 1898 and passed away June 13 1898. She was buried in Plumas. She had 9 siblings, William Alexander, Alexander Burnell, John William, Delmer Hamilton, Hugh Arnold, Norman Charles, Colin James, Clara, and Robert.
Her father was John Charles Buchanan, born Nov 4 1861. He was married firstly to Jane Morrison who passes away in 1887 and then to Jennie Freeborn who was Violet's mother.
Her grandfather was William Buchanan who was married to Ann Thompson.
Her great grandfather was Andrew Buchanan who was married to Jane Long.
[Note: Gram Gertie's ancestry can be traced to Andrew Buchanan who was born in 1826 [ born just after William] and lived in Bernie Manitoba, not that far from McCreary MB.]

Bill, this is the only Jane Morrison that I could find living in Elma in 1881. Her birth place says "of Elma".
This Jane has an older sister Margaret. Could the sister Margaret be the same Margaret Morrison that married William (Willie) Buchanan? Her birth place also says "of Elma", but we don't have them connected as sisters (at least, I don't). - Barry

I plan to be in Toronto at the Archives of Ontario in a few weeks & will look up the details on the marriage of John Charles to Jane Morrison. That will give details on Jane's parents. She died a few years later (1887? I don't have my notes here), John Charles remarried and then moved west (both marriages took place in Elma township). Jane was buried in Donegal cemetery, the stone is very worn and almost unreadable.

Yes, there were two Elizabeth Hammonds who married Young brothers. I have the parents of one recorded somewhere, but not the other - I should try to find that info so that it is clear that these are two different women. They were about the same age, too! It must have been confusing.


Two Young brothers married women named Elizabeth Hammond. The two brothers were Robert John Young and William Nixon Young, sons of Margaret Buchanan and John Young. The two Elizabeth Hammonds were both from Elma township, but they were a few years apart in age.
-
From the Brussels Post, August 18, 1893:
"YOUNG - HAMMOND - At the residence of the bride's father on Thursday 3rd inst, by Rev. A. Henderson, M.A., assisted by the Rev. G. E. Williams, Mr Robert John Young of Elma to Miss Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr George Hammond of Atwood."
-
Robert and Elizabeth moved to Shellmouth, Manitoba, I think sometime between 1893 and 1901 because they are not on the 1901 census in Elma township. Elizabeth Hammond was born in 1864 (this according to the Buchanan Family Tree; their marriage record 009703-1893 would give Elizabeth's age at time
of marriage but I haven't looked it up yet).

William Nixon Young and his wife Elizabeth Jane (Hammond) purchased C8L28 in 1918. Their children were Robert, Edwin, Alexander and Margaret. Alexander (1902-1986) married Elizabeth Ford (1895-1980), purchased the farm in 1931 and remained on it until they sold and retired to Atwood in 1972.
Neighbours have many pleasant memories of Alex and Lizzie. They were conscientious farmers; Alex was meticulous in his care of his farm buildings, livestock and machinery, workmg long hours cutting weeds with his scythe or pulling wild mustard by hand. Lizzie was always helping with farm chores and caring for her well-kept garden where you could find vegetables, red and black currant bushes, rhubarb, plums and other items. They always welcomed visitors. Lizzie played the piano and Alex his fiddle. When young visitors were leaving, Lizzie went to the pantry to find a cookie for each one.
Neighbours joked about Lizzie's many superstitions and remedies but in view of today's herbal medicines, maybe she was not all wrong. Alex had his quirks, too - such as not moving the clocks forward one hour in the spring. His favourite expression in times of trouble or excitement was 'holy boldy'.
Alex and Lizzie were members of Donegal United Church. Lizzie was a member of the Wl and Alex a member of the LOL [Loyal Orange Lodge].

1901 census says Young Elizabeth F Wife M Jul 1 1869 31

The other Elizabeth Hammond, whose middle name was Jane, was born about 1870 (1870 according to gravestone, Sept 2, 1871 according to Buchanan Family Tree, Sept 2, 1869 according to the 1901 census and Perry Brisbin's info [but Perry may have got this from the 1901 census* - *The 1901 census shows dates of birth, but for Elma township these dates are often off by one year!*]; obit says "died in 66th year" and she was 65, so born in about
1870). In the marriage record given below, I seem to have forgotten to record her age, so I'll have to re-check this. It might help clear up her year of birth.

Marriage 013163-1900: Dec 26, 1900 in Elma township, William Nixon Young, 22, of Elma, farmer, Baptist, s/o John and Margaret Young, to Elizabeth Jane Hammond, Baptist, d/o William Hammond and Margaret Keating.

William Nixon and Elizabeth lived in Elma township and were buried in Donegal Cemetery.
VB: b. 2 Sep 1870

Another source said born: 2 Sep 1871

Birth: I had some trouble with this date. Gravestone says 1870; obit says "died in 66th year in 1935" which indicates born in 1870; 1901 census gives a birth date of Sept 2, 1869; Buchanan Family Tree gives a birth date of Sept 2, 1871. I have decided to go with Sept 2, 1870. This could be incorrect. - S Schaller

Reveries of a Pioneer: Elma Vera Ernst McNichol, Dixon Press Limited, Kitchener, Ontario, 1966.
pg 152 Jim Hardie and his sister Margaret [this may be the James Hardie who married Elizabeth Young, or it may be a relative. Carrie Dick's maiden name was Buchanan.] The Hardies, who had two farms on second of Elma, moved to the old Hone farm. Mr Hardie invented an outfit to take electricity out of the air, but could not get a bulb that would stand the current. He was an electrician and taught James Gray in the trade. He was also a thresher in the era of steam engines. Margaret was a nurse. The Hardies were of Scotch descent. They retired to Britton, to a frame house beside the Watson store.
