Looking for an ancestor named TEAL or TIEL, who is said to have lived in Brighton Township for many years and all his children were born there. It is also said that he is buried in the McPHAIL Cemetery near Wooler. He is said to have died in 1870 and possibly was of German descent. They owned 55 acres of land designated as E 1/2 Lot 23, Conc. 4, Brighton Township.

Can you give me a clue as to where I might find these Cemetery records? This ancestor, we believe, was born in Hamburg, Germany on or about 1799. Please contact: Joanne PETERS at pjpl@nidlink.com

Searching for information of our grandfather, William Joseph DUNN, b. 4 April 1893 at Campbellford, Ontario.

He and his siblings were place in an Orphanage, circa 1900-1903. In 1903 we found him as a Home Boy in the family of Henry Smith in Ashworth (near Huntsville), Muskoka District, Ontario. Family legend says the parents died in a fire. William reportedly found one of his sisters, Miss Nellie RITTENHOUSE, later in life.

We have searched many, many documents, but need HELP! now. Were there any local orphanages in or near Campbellford around 1900 that were named BERNADO? Does anyone have knowledge of the Campbellford history around 1900-1903 that might reveal the tragedy that befell this DUNN family? Do Guardianship registers for the County of Northumberland exist? Any help would be greatly appreciated in solving the origins of William DUNN.
