I am the great granddaughter of Martin Font, son of John and Catherine (nee Rooney).
Martin, born 1875 in Newcastle, was a Home Child who "emigrated" to Canada aboard the Numidian in 1891, landing in Quebec.
He had 4 children and passed away in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He is buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in London, Middlesex Co., Ontario, Canada.
We have just ths week made contact with 2 of his descendants here in Canada.
If this line is any use to you, please reply and I'd be happy to share what I have.
