I'm researching any McEVOY or McAVOY Irish families in Pickering, Ontario. My 3rd great grandmother, Hannah McEVOY (or McAVOY) married Joseph VALENTINE in 1845. Each of them was listed as a resident of Pickering, Ontario at the time of their marriage. Hannah was born in Northern Ireland about 1827, so I expect that her whole family immigrated from Ireland to Canada at some time between 1827 and 1845. Her maiden name is spelled differently on different records. Thank you for sharing any information you might have.
