Walter Deacon 1851-1940 & Mary Janes Christie 1860-1033


Celia Murray writes:    I think this is Walter Deacon,  my grandfather's brother,  (1851-1940) and Mary Jane Christie (1860-1933) parents of Annie, Minnie, Violet, Charlotte and Olive. Walter was born in Marmora .... his father was born in Devonshire England. (This was my English Methodist side...some of the Irish Catholic side came from Wexford).  Walter's great grand daughter is Elaine Callan (Lakeshore Rd).

Marmora Herald August 15, 1907:

"Walter Deacon is building a handsome residence on the west side of McGill Street.  The work is nearly completed."
