Have you acquired the 1881 census of this family. John and wife Christy and 8 children? My mother can remember the eldest child Ann who died in 1930. You mentioned book "Butternuts and Maple Syrup"----- Have you the copy of the pages on lot 18 concession 5 Lochiel? There are notes there and photos of 2 of Harriet's sisters....Flora and Lily. The family tree in "BN and MS" does not mention a sister Mary who died in 1891. Harriet's parents and 3 siblings are buried at the Cemetary of St. Columba Presbyterian Church, Kirkhill.
Will continue to look for John McLeod.
