I read with interest your extract of the article
A Deserted Wife. The child was Henry Smith Johnson (1855-1946), the editor of the
Simcoe Reformer and noted Norfolk County historian. Henry was the grandfather of my late uncle D. Gerald Johnson (husband of Verla Mutrie).
I always wondered what became of the husband David Smith Johnson. His wife Hannah was in the 1881 and 1901 Censuses of Simcoe.
Thanks for a great find.

Thank you for this excellent site. I was
thrilled when I viewed the Round Plains Cemetery [video] and my
great-grandparents stone (Joseph & Isabella Stuart) was the first shot.

Can't thank you enough for what you have posted over the years to your site. It's really brought a lot of my ancestors to life for me.
I stopped in your area last May and spent a few days traveling around the countryside and visiting places that I had only read about. It was a moving experience. I especially enjoyed seeing the cemetery in Lynedoch where so many of my family rests. Enjoyed your
video of the cemetery, made me feel like I was almost there again.

... really love your site, especially the videos.

Just discovered your wonderful Norfolk Genealogy site while surfing on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Have found several ancestors' names so will be coming back. Thanks for making so much information available in one form or another and especially taking the time to gather that information.

I'm very impressed with the amount of information on your website. Having recently completed
Canadian Lands Records, I have been looking into settlements which brought me to your Long Point Settlement page. From there, I was just amazed as I went from one page to another. Just watching the
Overview, is inspiring. Other genealogical groups should take their cue from Norfolk to stir interest in the history and genealogy in their communities.

Thank you for creating this web site, and for all the research that went
into compiling the documents and preparing them for the web. Through your site I found the
Hewitt Mystery pages. I have contacted Karen
Hewitt. Her documents expanded my search for the William Hewitt line. I am descended from his son Joseph Richardson Hewitt.
I will be back to read other parts of the site.

Your Norfolk site is a
great site. It the only place's I've been able to find the McNeaney's. It is an
uncommon name and I've found nothing on the LDS site. I spent summers at the
farm in Charlotteville, near Turkey Point, and think the whole area is
under-rated. It seems that a lot of people can trace there families back to
Norfolk, so your site is invaluable. Thanks...

I just spent the last hour researching your

I have contacted Robert Mutrie on several occassions... His resource materials and publications are a
genealogist's dream come true.
Great site... keep up the good work!
