Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello: I am principally interested in finding links to the Kimberl(e)y, McCarthy, Lavery and Peters families.

The KIMBERLY family came up from the USA to the Perth, ON, area around 1818 and spread throughout Ontario from that area, and then some to Saskatchewan and BC.

The PETERS family, originally farmers in the Ukraine, came up to Saskatchewan from Texas and S. Dakota around 1901 after the disastrous hurricane in Galveston, Texas, in 1900.

The MCCARTHY family moved from Bandon, Cork, Ireland, to Ottawa, ON, in the 1840s and then my branch of the McCarthys moved to Winnipeg and some, later to BC. Another branch moved from Ottawa to Kenora, Tulsa, Denver, Los Angeles and Albuquerque. Some remained in the Ottawa area but are hard to trace.

The LAVERY family, moved from Magheralin, south of Belfast to Winnipeg in 1911 and others to Treherne, Manitoba, in 1928. Most of the Canadian branch of the family remains in Manitoba but some are in Ontario and British Columbia. Most of the Laverys, however, remain in N. Ireland. Bill Lavery, May 22, 2013

Samuel Diell
I made the changes and transferred Samuel to you. Do you have any idea where Harriet died? Since Samuel died young, did she remarry?
