Pringle Jacob F. Stormont Cornwall Cornwall Judge of the County Court, Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry France June 18, 2009: Hi There, I gave my daughter an old dresser that belonged to my mother and at the back of one of the drawers they found a piece of old ("masking Type") tape with : Judge Jacob Pringle, Cornwall, son-in-law. They were going to re-finish it and stopped until we find out more about it. I googled his name but can't seem to find a site with information about him. I would appreciate any info or even a site to go to.

New February 23, 2017: During the Great Famine (Black '47), families were sent from Grosse Isle, Quebec to Montreal and then on to local communities which were either on a canal system or where industrialization was taking place and jobs were opening up. In Cornwall, Ontario there was an already established Irish community to assist the new arrivals to integrate into life in Canada. Some of the famine emigrants stayed here in Cornwall and others moved, up the St. Lawrence River or north to Glengarry County or to the Ottawa Valley. Here are names of some folks who came from Montreal to Cornwall between 1845 and 1847. Most of these folks came with their families: Michael Buckley, Samuel Bigham, George Blackwell, William Mullowny / Maloney ?, Patrick Darcy, Michael McCarty / McCarthy, William Harrald, wife & family, Margaret Loving & 7 children, Archibald Erwin, wife & 2 children, John Mathews, Jerry Driscoll, James Wallace, Brien Shea1 / Brian Shields ?, Source: Names of Emigrants from the 1845-1847 records of James Allison, Emigrant Agent at Montreal, Irish Research Group of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, publication number 94-2, 1994, ISBN 1-55116-72-8.
