John T. Robertson Obituary- Caldwell Bookeeper Rideau Canal

Karen Schultz sent me this Obituary-Obituary for my 2nd great-grandfather clipped from the Perth Courier, June 13, 1913. I thought it was very important and should be documented. Thank you Karen!

Linda has published six books and is in her 4th year as a town councillor for Carleton Place. She believes in community and promoting business owners because she believes she can, so she does.

  1. Linda this is a great posting and full of details that every genealogist and historian likes. We will add it to our Tales of Lanark County publication. And might take it a step further with additions of facts related to this family and any photos the Museums may have
