I am trying to trace the life of a would be missing relative, John MCLARTY, who was born in Scotland, arrived in Kemptville abt. 1900 and married Margaret ALLEN, d/o Daniel ALLEN of Reid's Mills. It seems that many ALLENs came from that area. John MCLARTY lived to be 98 years old. He only had 1 daughter, it seems, Verna Isabella MCLARTY, b. 1905, who went on to be a school teacher and principal, married a WILLES and lived to be about 95 herself. I know when John was born, immigrated, married, died and is buried but I wonder about the life he had ... was he a farmer or business man? Where? He may have been keeping in touch with relatives back in Scotland. A recently passed away man recalled getting Christmas presents during the WW2 years from a MCLARTY uncle in Canada ... trying to learn if this is him. Thanks!
