Searching for descendants of the Murray family who lived in Zephyr, Ont. in early 1900's. In my husbands ggg grandmother, Nancy Waggoner/Wagner's obituary it said she was survived by a sister "Mrs. Murray" of Zephyr. Parents of these two sisters were: John Fralick and Margaret Ferguson.

Hi Karen,
Do you have Nancy Waggoner's obituary? Could you share a copy. Nancy is in my family tree.

Nancy and John Waggoner's daughter Matilda, married a Patterson, and had my gr. grandmother.

Thanks so much.

I am the gr gr grandaughter of Nancy Waggnor (Fralick's) child Matilda Waggnor who married a Patterson. They had a daughter, Libbie Patterson who is my gr grandmother.

I also have some evidence to suggest that Nancy's grandparent, were Chirstopher Fralick and Catarin Smith who were loyalists, and granted land in Canada for their loyalty to the British crown. I have one loyalist record that shows similar data to suggest it was them.

I am hoping to find more evidence to link them more definatively before I go back much further.

Thanks for that information.
I have information about Libby Patterson also if you don't have that. She died from the Spanish flu. I have a source record. One of her children was my grandmother who lived a very long life. She passed away only a few years ago.
