Notes for William McQuaid:
William McQuaid who died in 1856 has the dubious honor of being the first man recorded as buried in the then new St. Mary's Cemetery at Kingston. A woman holds the title of the first interment. (C.W. at St. Mary's Cemetery)
William McQuaid and his wife Mary O'Neill settled in Kingston Ontario about 1852. It is quite probable that they emigrated here due to the plight of the "Potato Famine" which had been disrupting life in Ireland. Both the McQuaid and O'Neill lines originate from some of the ancient stock in Ireland. Along with William and Mary, five children arrived in Kingston Ontario. From these humble beginnings a large family grew whose members now live in various areas of the North American continent.
