  • Notes 
    • John R McKinlay was born near Morpeth on the 12th concession of Howard Township County of Kent on April 7 1833, Eldest son of Robert McKinlay and Mary McLean who had settled on a two hundred acre farm in the woods to hew out a home for themselves.

      John had 6 brothers & 6 sisters. one sister,

      Janet was older than John. A pair of twin brothers died when but 4 days old. A brother Duncan died at the age of 12 years. The rest all lived to be young men and women.

      As John grew up he attended school at Morpeth. Being the oldest boy of the family he had to help his father clear land and pay the debt on the farm and therefore he got very little schooling.

      In those days they farmed with Oxen, cut hay with a scythe, swung the cradle around stumps to cut the wheat.

      Buried at Greenwood cemetery, Ridgetown, Ontario, Canada.

      JSH Note: Ellen Campbell Price's manuscript spells his last name "McKinley" but McKinlay seems to be what is recorded in the public records I have seen.
