Bristol Branch of my Family
James Cuthbertson, his wife Euphemia Turner and family make decision to emigrate from Scotland. They arrived late 1820’s to what is now called Bristol, Quebec. Their son William and his wife Charlotte Prosser were also on that ship. Two of their daughters became my great grandmothers. Euphemia Cuthbertson married Benjamin Gerow. Elizabeth Cuthbertson married John Miller.
Benjamin Gerow family had settled in Sophiasburgh, Upper Canada. Gerow had long history from France, New York, NB, Ontario.
At this time, unknown how Euphemia and Benjamin met. He may have worked on the Rideau Canal or with Military. They were both residing Belleville Ontario when married.
Benjamin's mother was Martha Wiggins and her maternal family can be traced to Plymouth Rock.
John Miller arrived in Canada with his parents Charles and Margaret and siblings from Limerick, Ireland circa 1855. Settled Pakenham area of Lanark, Ontario.
So, the dance of the Cuthbertson, Miller and Gerow’s began.
