Sorry it took so long for a reply, I was just
going over all the old messages on the message board and spotted your reply.
This is what I have on John Weir, he was born
1868, i think, in Ireland, he had several
brothers, one was named William. John came
to Canada in 1875 but could not find him on
the census until 1901 in Newmarket, Ontario.
I am not sure where he was until 1901, possibly in the US, we know his brother
(Billy) which john called him like to play
baseball. John was in Newmarket around 1890
to 1916 then moved to Toronto, Ont around
1917. Thats about all I have, not sure who
John to Canada with as he was only 7 yrs old.
We know nothing about his family except that
he had several brothers, one named William.
