Interesting that they are next-door neighbors to the McPhersons; Annie was a McPherson. Also notice the Scott family further up the page. Walter's grandmother was a Scott. Wouldn't it be interesting if they were all relatives?

The index is found on the Wellington County site:

By the way, 1901 is also indexed, but I don't see our Cowans. Did I miss something? See for yourself:

Hi Valorie,

I am the grandaughter of Nealson McAninch who is mentioned in a census at age 1, son of Hugh McAninch. Iwould be happy to supply you with any info, pics etc since I live close to where the family originally settled.

Hi Carolynn, we are cousins by marriage, then. Your grandfather's brother Hugh married my great-aunt Grett (Margaret) Cowan. When they moved out here to the west, they came by car, and camped along the way. We had the old tent that they used for many years. I think, being cotton canvas, that it finally fell apart. I slept in that tent so many summer nights! I hope you have seen my post on the McAninch connection with us. I loved Aunt Grett and Uncle Hugh so much!
