I have a Sarah Pardo, daug. of William Pardo, who married in 1888 in Chatham.

I have a couple of Murdocks, but they are in the Wallaceburg area in the 1880's to 1900's. Who are your Murdocks?

The Pardo is probably related. Would you have the Gill information?
The Murdock was Edward Murdock who married Ellen Gill.

I am an O'Phee, and I am related to McPhersons. I don't know anyone whose name was Blackmore in my family, but there are other names in your list that are familiar to me (Gill and Musdock). Is there a connection??

Hi Margaret,

I have Mary Ann O'Phee who married Richard Gill. She was the according to my researcher's information,the daughter of Julia and John McPherson, so I assume the Gill marriage was her 2nd marriage.Their Children were Richard,Willis,Orlo,Orville,Julia and Isabel
I also have a Barbara McPherson who married James Gill.
Their children were Vera and Hugh.
Richard and james were children of thomas and Mary Gill.
Thomas and mary had a daughter who married Edward Murdock.

Hi Patti:
Well, I'm from Chatham, ON. and those are my relatives. As a matter of fact, I have a sister whose name is
Mary Ann O'Phee.
I haven't had a chance to compare my records, but I know that Mary Ann O'Phee is related to me. The name O'Phee is very uncommon, having been changed from O'Fee after the family immigrated to Canada.
Are we related? Where are you writing from?
There were 3 O'Phee/O'Fee brothers who came to Canada, and we are able to follow the life of only one of them. The other two appear to have left, but no one is quite sure where they went. I would love to find out.
