Hi Jackie,  Thanks for joining our we page.  Once the museum opens on Monday I will pass on your request for information to Kathy Pederson who handles the research. We will let you know what we find.  Give us a few days to get back to you.

Hi Jackie, Have  you heard St Vincent is having their 155th Town Reunion the 28th and 29th of July, 2012?

We will have a walking tour of the cemetery and I noticed that there are 2 Edkins and 3 Andersons buried in the

cemetery.  We would love to get photos and other information if you find any for them.

Kristine, thank you so much for all your work. Somehow I lost track of where I found out what Anna's maiden name was and today, more than 3 years later I find this again. Thank you. 

Not sure if you can add addition information but here is some. Andrew's middle name was Elliot (his mother's maiden name). He is the son of John Anderson and Barbara Elliot Anderson. They had 4 children.  Mary "Minnie" (m. George Robert Wishart), Barbara Ellen (m. Thomas John Edkins), John Harris Anderson, and Mabel May (m. James Savage). I haven't found any information on Anna Donnelly. Andrew Elliot was born 09 Feb 1848 in St Malachy, Beauharnois County, Quebec, Canada. He died 25 Feb 1901 in St Vincent. By the way it looks like part of the information above was cut. I think I understand the missing parts.

Again, thanks.

Kristine Baldwin Ohmann please take note that I have added additional information.

I have found information on Anna Donnelly! It has been a long search and one day someone sent me the following through Find A Grave.

01-09-1937 Annie Donnelly, widow of Andrew Anderson, and daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Donnelly of Huntingdon PQ, died at St. Vincent Minnesota, age 80 years. ~~~~~~~~ this was published on CanadaGenWeb. I have since found more of the Donnelly family.

It is so exciting to find new discoveries and I am oh, so thankful to the person that sent the info to me.
