Ed Murphy sent this and hoping someone can help…
I am looking for ancestors or any information really about the family of J.A. Stevenson of Lanark who resided in District 83 of Lanark North as per the 1891 census report. My grand uncle (George Kewley and later his sister Florence) were British Home Children who was placed with the Stevenson family specifically looking for the location of the farm and anything about the family to help provide contextual background on these Kewley childrens early life in Canada. Florence was eventually adopted by the Stevenson family…. as you can see from my previous posts 4 children ended up in the same area (thankfully). and luckily some of the “happier” stories associated with the Home Children program.
I am looking for ancestors or any information really about the family of Robert and Jane Ross of Lanark who resided in District 83 of Lanark North as per the 1901 census report. My grandfather (Joh Kewley) was a British Home Child who was placed with the ROSS family. He lived with the family from 1889 until he married in 1905. specifically looking for the location of the farm and anything about the family to help provide contextual background on Joh Kewley’s early life in Canada.
If anyone can help let me know at email@example.com and I will email Ed.
