Looking for any information on the PETTIGREW family from Cobourg. Specifically any family members and especially ancestors of Catherine PETTIGREW, b 1857, Cobourg, daughter of Robert and Sarah Pettigrew, who married Isaac Edmond BOOMER in Toronto, York, CAN on Aug 29, 1883 son of Richard and Mary Boomer, probably from Nova Scotia. Witnesses at the wedding: Caroline PETTIGREW and Frederick William ROSS. Only one son from the marriage Roy Edmund BOOMER , b 1884, Toronto, York, CAN. Isaac and Catherine PETTIGREW BOOMER eventually came to Detroit, MI. Isaac was a builder by trade and a Congregationalist by religion. Catherine is listed on the marriage record as a Methodist. Isaac was over 6'2" tall and Catherine was very petite, supposedly with bright red hair. This is a dead end line for me and I'd appreciate any help, hints, clues.

Can you please tell me where I should write to ask about two burials in Seymour, Northumberland?

My ggrandfather James ARCHER, 53, English, is shown on the 1871 Census as living on Concession 6, part lot 8 (5 acres) of Seymour, Northumberland.

I have found information, through the OCFA, on a James ARCHER buried in West's, Northumberland, Seymour, KW-N1716.

James' wife is listed on the census as Margaret, 39, born in Scotland. There is a Margaret ARCHER in Burnbreae/St. Andrew Presbyterian, Northumberland, Seymour, KW-N1714.

It is just possible that these may be the ones I need. I would be happy to pay whatever fee is necessary for someone to find further information on these two burials.

Hope you can help me. Please respond to: Joy Ann PARKER of Midland, Ontario at minidoll@csolve.net
