She died at Woodstock, Ontario. Her side of the story will never be written. Nor do I know it. She travelled to Canada/U.S.A. looking after a very young child of her brother George (above). She kept the child through the years without informing her of her parentage, or of the fact that she had some 9 brothers and sisters in Kansas City, and in spite of the fact that her husband implored her to tell. This was about 1884. Who are we to pass judgment? Mrs. W.F. Toll and her daughter, of 640, Emery Street, London, Ontario, may have more information.

She married a William Murray (no relation). Her late residence was 253, Ingersoll Avenue, Woodstock (confirmed by funeral notice which I have seen).

He died 1926, aged 75, i.e. born 1851. Native of Sutherlandshire. Piper in "Sutherland Volunteers". To Canada 1891, Woodstock. 25 years in C.P.R. He married Elizabeth Lackie, of Normandy. King Solomon Lodge AF and AM.
