Looking for information on the following:
William John (Willie John) Robinson 1846-1909, born in "The Gore" Argenteuil County, Quebec. Married to Margaret McKnight(1851-1927-I know her history 2 generations furthur back)) from Shewsbury,Que.
William's parents were (I think) Samuel and Alice Robinson, believed to be from Ireland, but I would like to learn more.
Thanks

Hi Michelle,

What information do you have on Margaret McKnight? I have Patrick McKnight in Ottawa in 1850's, his wife Mary Ann Lynum was born in Quebec (sorry can't remember where). Patrick's parents were Daniel McKnight and Margaret Cleary. There was alot of Cleary's in/around Portneuf area but no real connection found yet.

Please e-mail me at

Thanks

Don't know if this will help. My great grandfather was William John Robinson b. 1874 in Central Plains of Manitoba. He could be son of your William Robinson. I am researching ancestors of my William.

Hello,
Sorry I have been so long in answering your query. I changed internet servers, so didn't get the message sent to me, and hadn't checked back in until now.
Anyway, the children of my John William Robinson, or "Willie John" were all born in Quebec, and then the family moved to Ninga, Manitoba. Although he had a son named William John Jr. I have him as born in 1868, and then later moving to Davison, Saskatchewan. I have a possible wife for him as McEwan. I can no longer remember my source for this info, but I did verify in the Manitoba census that this family was living in Ninga, and beside them lived a McKnight family who were related through his marriage to Margaret McKnight.
Sincerely,
MHarrison

Thanks for your reply. From this, it appears I have the wrong William John, however, I appreciate your help. I'll continue searching.
Sincerely,
Tracey

I don't know if my lot fit in with yours but I have a Catharine Robinson born around 1813 likely in Ireland. She married Joseph McCluskey in Montreal in 1843 and lived in Chatham, Argenteuil ( later Lachute) until her death in 1897. They had 5 known children all born in Canada, in cluding two sons, John born 1851 and WILLIAM ROBINSON born 1854.

I have not been able to find out anything about Catharine or Joseph prior to their marriage.
