      Margaret Brown and John Fitzgibbon
      -----------------------------------------------------------
      Margaret was the youngest child of Edward and Margaret Brown, and would have been about eleven years old when she came to Canada with her parents, brothers and sisters. She probably came to Perth County with the family in the 1850's, and most likely lived with her mother and some of her siblings on one of their farms. Eventually Margaret met and married John Fitzgibbon and farmed on the north half of
      Lot 31 of 8th concession of Ellice Township. She died in Ellice Township on April 7, 1895, the second of her siblings other than her brother James to die. Although there is no tombstone in the Kinkora Cemetery, there is a record of her burial in the Kinkora Church records. Her husband John sold the fifty-acre farm to their son, James, in 1911, and supposedly moved to Hamilton, Ontario. However records show that John died at the farm on August 11, 1911. Within the next year James sold the farm to his sister Margaret and her husband Bernard McDonnell. James then went to Hamilton and married Catherine Friel there. Much of the information on Margaret and John and their family comes
      from Rita McDonnell's records and scrapbooks. Some of the above information was displayed at the Robert and Nellie FamilyReunion at Gladwin, Michigan on July 12, 2003.
