My name is Robert McCauley and have been researching the family of 'Thomas French' in the Amaranth Twp. area who lived there between the early 1850's and died in 1869. From the Amarath history book I ordered I learned that Thomas's son Alonzo French owned a hotel in Whittington on Lot 16 Con 1 (west 1/2. And it was burned down in 1873. I was wondering if someone could look up or has any newspaper articles written about the fire. This may be in the Orangeville sun or a Shelburne newspaper?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
