I am looking for information on John FORTUNE who lived in the Huntingdon, QC area in the mid 1800's. His wife was Jeannet Fitch FORTUNE and they had six children; Alexander, Robert, Ann, George, William and David. They came from Scotland and settled there when the children were young. They were all born in Scotland, according to the census records I have.

I have found a marriage record for John Fortune and Janet Leitch in Paisley, Scotland. Married 5 December 1823. They are the parents of Andrew Fortune, born in Paisley 28 April 1831. Andrew Fortune married Esther Shaw Carr (born in Ireland in 1838) in Huntingdon, Quebec, Canada on 30 May 1853. His father John Fortune witnessed the baptisms of several of their children in 1862 in Huntingdon, as did his brother William Fortune. I would be very interested in learning anything more you may know about this family!

Hello,

My husband descends from Andrew Fortune, son of John Fortune & Janet Leitch. Andrew and his wife, Esther Shaw Carr, had 7 children, including Anna Shaw Fortune. Anna married Franklin Ames Sharpe, Sr., and they were my husband's great-grandparents.

What is your line of descent?

I found a lot of good info here:

Janet Leitch is my second great grandmother. The only information I have is her marriage date to John Fortune, her birth and death. Maybe we can solve some Fortune mysteries!

Another researcher & I have just discovered that Janet Leitch's parents were John Leitch & Catherine Bisset, who married 28 May 1785 in Paisley, Scotland.

What is your email address? Mine is bhawp16@aol.com and I can send you the information I have on the Fortune family.

Best,
