Our ancestors were neighbours. My gr.gr.gr grandfather was David Murdoch, who lived kitty-corner from the Mitchells. I have a lot about the Murdochs here, who also arrived in Verulam in 1832:http://everyonedeservesapage.com/genealogist/getperson.php?p...
Do you know anything about the cemetery/church that used to be on the Mitchell land? I'm trying to find an early burial, but it may be hopeless. I suspect there are a couple of bodies buried under the Murdoch land, Concession 6, Lot 5, but if the church on the Mitchell land was the right denomination, they may have buried David's first two wives there.
