Dear Carl: Incredible to find a distant relative! I am a descendant of Margaret Urquhart who married your ancestor James Peabody Stymiest. I came across this info back in October 2012 from the photo of the 2 of them and the info on your UEL Association application you posted. A cousin of mine in Montreal has been doing research and I have an extensive 15 to 20 page lineage from him showing all of our descendants from the Reverend John Urquhart back in the late 1700's. My grandmother on my mother's side was Eurnice Urquhart who had 8 children by Jerome Maher. Lived and died in Montreal. Three children (all in their 70s and 80's) still livng in Quebec/Ontario Canada and one daughter in Santa Barbara, Calif. area. My mother , Edna Maher Hyland, passed away about 15 yrs ago. I live in Lakewood, California, which is 22 miles southeast of Los Angeles. I will be forwarding your UEL info and other info to my cousin and those aunts and uncles mentioned who will be very interested to see a photo of Margaret as it gives us an idea of what Rev. John Urquahart looked like possibly. To me she looks sort of like the actress Agnes Moorehead. Thank you for all of your hard work on your Stymiest ancestors. I also found info on the Charlotte Taylor site. One of my uncles in Montreal said he visited a monument in Miramichi that is dedicated to Rev. John. Please email me and say hello if you have time.
