. . . I would have a more detailed story of the families from whom I'm descended.
What follows is what I have collected over the last few years from Ancestry.ca and related sites, good old "Google", and family memories.
That I was related to the Thompsons of Cavan was a continuing story of my childhood. My dad's grandmother, whom we all called "Grammy Emmerson", was related to Reverand Joseph Thompson, the first minister of St John's Anglican church in Ida, Ontario.
