ALLEN of Reid's Mills, MCLARTY of Kemptville

Surnames: ALLEN MCLARTY WILLES
Hello,
I am trying to trace the life of a would be missing relative, John MCLARTY, who was born in Scotland, arrived in Kemptville abt. 1900 and married Margaret ALLEN, d/o Daniel ALLEN of Reid's Mills. It seems that many ALLENs came from that area. John MCLARTY lived to be 98 years old. He only had 1 daughter, it seems, Verna Isabella MCLARTY, b. 1905, who went on to be a school teacher and principal, married a WILLES and lived to be about 95 herself. I know when John was born, immigrated, married, died and is buried but I wonder about the life he had ... was he a farmer or business man? Where? He may have been keeping in touch with relatives back in Scotland. A recently passed away man recalled getting Christmas presents during the WW2 years from a MCLARTY uncle in Canada ... trying to learn if this is him. Thanks!
Mary

Hi Mary,

Do you have his obituary? It may give some clues to his life and other relatives. If you post his date of date and location (did he stay in Kemptville?), someone may be able to find it. Since he lived to be 98, there may be an article in the newspaper about him.
