  11. Earlier this month had a query on McLennan/pringle as follow
  1. Hi 
  2.    Here is a list of the family tree from Annie Marian McCallum she married Charles James McLennan 1880.
  3. Mothers paternal grandfather's nationality unknown possibly USA. Settled in Ottawa. His children were Annie (Davis), Charlotte (Brooks), Almira (Burchard), Electa (Storms), Ard and Smedley. This is probably around 1744.
    Pheobe Benedict from Connecticut married Joseph Pringle and their children were Hannah, Sam, Cy, Anson, James, Polly and Hiram.
    Hannah Pringle married Ard Benedict their children were William, Elias, Mary, Susan, Pheobe, Charles, Amanda, Samuel, Almira Jane, Miles and Albert.
    Almira Jane was born in Adolphustown Ontario March 14th 1835. She married Duncan James McCallum Feb. 2nd 1855.
    This information comes from the family Bible given to Charles and Annie on the their wedding date. There is a hand written paper in the Bible that was written by Annies family members the information has to have come from parents or grandparents because the accuracy of the family background names.
    Chris I am also sending this to Alex Fraser a church historian that can give us further information as there is a connection for John K McLennan as a church Elder. John is the only  one who put the a in MaC his father Kenneth was McLennan. Chris look at Joseph Pringle this family takes you back to 119
