bullet  General Notes:

The following history of the Anderson family was written to her nieces July 13, 1953 by Miss Margaret Emberson, who was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Emberson, of South Monaghan, Ontario. Mrs William Emberson was formerly Miss Margaret Anderson, daughter of Alexander Anderson and Catherine Kennedy Anderson. WESTON, July 13, 1953

"I do not know how long it was before Grandfather met and married Mrs. Kinghorn, a widow with three children; two boys, one a stepson of 11 or 12 years; a girl, Margaret, 5 years, and Jimmie 1 or 2 years older. Her husband, John Kinghorn, was a clever man who could make small pretty trinkets. I believe he was a cabinet maker. They arrived in Montreal where the cholera was raging and was stricken and died. Mrs. K. somehow got to Port Hope and got in touch with her brother, Nichol Dodds, who farmed 5 or 6 miles north of Port Hope in Hope Township.. I never heard how the lone widow with her little flock came in contact with our widower Grandpa, but such was the case. She lived and worked in the home of James Rutherford before the second marriage. They lived on boiled peas and a dark coarse bread of some sort. There was only one white loaf made for the man of the house. Little Margaret Kinghorn did not thrive on this diet and a kind man, Richard Rutherford, brother to James took her into his home, where she fared better as to food. but there were six children.

One of them, Mary, a fat chubby baby , was Margaret's special charge and was tied with a scarf on the back of the frail little girl to get an airing and sunbath. The Rutherfords were faithful, devout Presbyterians who walked to church at Centreville from their home on the farm that later Brother James and Rebecca ( who was Mary's daughter) lives on. "
