Did your alex Weir have any brothers? Mygggrandfather Abel
John Weir was born in Ireland in1836 he was a locksmith, he
married Ellen Elliott. They had 2 sons that were born in England John Weir Born 1868 and William born1862 in
England I am not sure if they had any children born in Ireland.
They came to Canada in 1875 and brought with them a Thomas Elliott born in 1861 (Ellens nephew) who was a
blacksmith. they lived in toronto. My ggramdfather john Weir moved to Newmarket around 1890's and worked as a metal polisher and then moved to toronto around1918 and lived on Jones Avenue in Toronto.
Do you know who Alex Weirs father is, maybe he could be a
brother of Abel John Weir, just a theory. I have not been able to find any relatives of the Weirs. this is almost 2 yrs
since you posted this, maybe you would have found some
info by now. If you think we might have a connection , please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
