ROBINSON - McKECHNIE in BC
Posted by: Bonnie Butler Date: August 07, 2001 at 10:08:43
  of 2043

I was wondering if anyone might recognize the family of my gg g'ma's sister, Flora.

1 Willliam ROBINSON b: ca 1859 [s/o Jane and John ROBINSON]
-+Flora MCKECHNIE b: aft 1861 <Glenelg Twp, Grey Co., Ontario> m: May 02, 1879 Little Current, Manitoullin Island, Ontario, CAN Father: Duncan MCKECHNIE Mother: Jane ROBINSON
2 Wallace ROBINSON b: Aft. 1879
2 Donna ROBINSON b: Aft. 1879

This is based on a combination of things. I found the marriage record on the Manitoulin Island website. Plus, my g'ma and her sister recall that their g'ma (Barbra McKECHNIE, Flora's sister) had some relations in Vancouver and British Columbia. They also remember her relative, who they called Aunt Flora. Flora m. a ROBINSON and had children Wallace and Donna. I don't know if Flora was the one in Vancouver and BC.

I don't know how/when they wound up on Manitoullin Island, but Barbra McKECHNIE and her husband, William JOHNSON, had Ann there in 1888, Mary Jane in 1889, and probably Reuben in 1891. Barbara's family went on to Sault Ste. Marie, MI in 1891.

Thanks for any assistance,
Bonnie
