    Notes 
    • Married in a double wedding with her brother George, per their marriage records. Note her christening record doesn't say she was born in Montreal - she may have just been baptized there on a family visit - so we can't assume Thomas & Janet lived there at the time.

      Have picture of "cousin Frank Heath" taken in Chatham, supplied by Ann Wanless of Michigan - presumably this is a son of John & Eleanor's.
