So where was it? For that I go to Jennifer E. Ferris… Five minutes after I asked she found it. It was near the end of the 12th line of Lanark, and on the same road as the floating bridge. Lloyd was on this side of the water. “16 is wolf grove rd”- At least one Thompson family farm there. Thanks Jennifer!!

If you have any memories of Lloyd Ontario please let me know.

On the other side of the road was Henry Savage, lot 16, owner, RR#2 Clayton Enoch Giles, lot 17, owner, RR#2 Clayton John Ireton, lot 18, owner, RR#2 Clayton. (names and locations were designated as owner or tenant) Also, the Concession 12 families could be either on Lanark conc 12, right side of the road, Or On the current Clayton road, on the left side as you drive towards the village. (the east vs west side of the lot are not mentioned) For concession 12, those residents on the east side were off of Lanark concession 12. Those on the west half of the concession would be off the current Clayton road.
