Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I transcribed an obituary from the Perth Courier which reads as follows: "April 19, 1909 Miss Mary McVeety aged 67 years, eldest of family of Thomas McVeety, now 88. Two brothers survive: Thomas of Mallory, MN and James of Paisley."
This led me to believe that this Mary McVeety never married. She is referred to as "Miss" and there is no mention of husband or children. Is it possible that we are talking about two different Mary McVeetys?
As background: Thomas Henry McVeety and Catherine McLean were early migrants from County Cavan, Ireland to Lanark County, Ontario (ca. 1820). They had three sons after arriving in Canada: Thomas, James, and David. James migrated to Polk County, Minnesota and his descendants have been well documented by other genealogists. David (my ancestor) migrated to Wright County, Minnesota and I have managed to document his decendants pretty well. Thomas remained in Canada (although his son Thomas X. also moved to Polk County) and the details of his decendants are less clear. Any light that you can shed on that line would be very helpful.
