bullet  General Notes:

The following history of the Anderson family was written 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

note: "Grandfather was Alexander Anderson previously married to Catherine Kennedy"
see notes for Alexander Alexander for complete text..

" 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."
