living in Elma Twp., next to a Scottish family.
In the 1871 Canada census, Walter and Agnes were living with their five oldest children
in the township of Logan, Perth. Their first-born twin boys had died at birth.
By the 1881 Canada census, they had eight children. Alexander died in 1881, and
Walter was born in 1883. In the 1891 Canada census, the family was still in Logan.
Walter and Agnes immigrated to the United States in 1893, becoming naturalized
citizens. Except for their oldest son James, all of their then living
children immigrated with them. The family settled in Ontario,
San Bernardino, California. In the 1900 U.S. census, they were living in Ontario,
California, with only two of their children, Mary and Walter.
Walter died in 1901, and Agnes eventually moved to Alhambra to live with her
daughters. Agnes died in 1914. Both are buried in the Noble plot in the
Bellevue Memorial Park, Ontario, California.
