In Reply to: Demille's in Ontario,Canada by Teri of 38

Today, I was at the Regina Public Library searching for some information on Annie May DeMill (born PE County, Ont) who married William George Horsey. They settled in Kisbey, Sask., where Mr. Horsey died in 1923. I do not know what happened to Annie May.
I checked the name DeMill in the Arcola - Kisbey Golden Heritage book, printed in 1987 & there is a 2 column article telling about the William James Demill family. William James Demill was born Oct 13, 1880 in PE County, Ont. He moved to the Kisbey, Saskatchewan area as a young man with his parents & family - a half sister Victoria, two sisters Maude & Emma & a younger brother Ralph. His father was William Arthur Demill, his mother Deborah Rightmyer.
William James met Mary Nicholson(born May 7, 1885 Coe Hill area of Ont). At the time, she was keeping house for her brother Dan in the Warmley, Sask school district. They were married June 26, 1911 at her home in Ontario. Then they returned to Kisbey, Sask.
(The article names all the children born to William & Mary & their birthdates. It does not tell who they married or where they settled.)
In March, 1928, Wm & Mary sold the homestead & returned to Ont & farmed near Trenton. (All the children would have been pretty young, so I would guess they all returned to Ontario as well.)
The article was written by Lelia May Demill. Please let me know if this is some help or if you would like a copy of the Demill history.
