  1. Hi Evelyn…I was wondering if you had any information on Elizabeth Rice 1836 -1888, hailing from either Ontario or Montreal, Quebec. She married Robert Farley ( 1821 – 1892 Ireland ) in Ottawa in 1859.
    They had a son (not sure how many children in total), Richard, who married Sophronie Gagne.
    Thank you!

  2. Family connections to the Rice Boys captured and assemilated/married into Mohawk Nation. Wish to gain more knowledge on their families and history/genealogy to connect to family tree,. Any suggestions on where to start search would be appreciated?
