      "[Thomas and Jane] came to Canada sometime between 1845 and 1848 with their eldest son, James b. 1845 in Ireland. After arriving they lived in North York on Parliament Street. Thomas was a carpenter and built some of the large buildings in Toronto. This is recorded in the Archives at the Parliament Buildings in Toronto. Thomas wrote scale music and played several musical instruments, such as the flute or fife, violin and drums. He was a herbalist and many came to him for help and advice during illness. While in Ireland he attended a Veterinary College and had one more year to put in before receiving his diploma. For some unknown reason, he quit college so he could not practice professionally, but he did share his knowledge many times to those in need. After leaving Toronto they came to Ashfield Twp. In the Zion area (W 1/2 of 11/13 E.D.) where there was a school, a hall used for Orange Lodge meetings and a cemetery. It was said that Jane came from a titled family and at one time was known to have 365 dresses. These dresses
      were worn in local plays for years afterwards." [Frontier Ways to Modern Days by Ashfield, Kinloss and West Wawanosh]
