March 18, 2004: Hi Mr. Lewis: My name is Samantha Hawkins Johnson. I almost fell off my chair when I found the following information and your email address. I am a newby to researching History and I think that this is my great great grandfather. All the children's names are right except we believed that James as we know him by was married to a Lucy Webster. Can we talk to each other through this medium to see if either of us know anything more about this family. Unfortunately, I live in BC and must travel to Abbotsford to do research at the Family Center and plan on going there in April. I look forward to hearing from you and am praying that your email address still works. Regards Samantha Hawkins-Johnson

May 30, 2008: Well, that map was SO interesting, Al. Two lots over from the Hawkins is Henry Tompkins (father Peter from Wicklow) and Henry was married to Ann Hopkins, d/o the McCabe Lister William Hopkins, ML# 233, from Coolkenna, County Wicklow. Coolkenna is where John Hawkins Sr.'s mother, Rebecca Dagg, was from. Anne
August 31, 2009: Hi to all, I was just perusing the Carleton County GenWeb site, and found the interesting exchange among you folks on the Hawkins / Moodie families. I believe the Moodies might be the family that migrated from the Scotch Line, Lanark County ca 1850 to Manotick. Along with this migration were John Christy and his wife Isabella Wright, whose daughter Mary married Hugh Blair. I have done considerable research on the Blair family of Bathurst Twp., Lanark County, and have included information on Hugh and Mary (Christy) Blair as well. Hugh Blair is the s/o William Blair and Catherine Sym, who emigrated from Glasgow, Scotland to the Perth, Lanark County area in 1820, Hugh was actually born in Scotland, Gorbals parish, prior to their emigration. Hugh and Mary had a son John Blair who married Euphemia Hall in 1878, I have their wedding picture, but do not have the names of Euphemia's parents. Do any of you have information on this Hall family? Hugh and Mary owned Lot 18, Rideau Front. He originally had a log house (as did most of the early settlers there) then at a later time built a brick house, now called "Honey Gables." Do any of you know where this house is? I have a picture of a lovely wood frame house, with a picture of Hugh and Mary and two of their daughters, taken in the front yard, I assume it was on Lot 18, so I don't know when the supposed brick house was constructed. The Moodie family in Bathurst township, Lanark County, also married into my Wilson family on the Scotch Line. There were quite a few Moodie families in those early days in that area. Any help you can offer will be most appreciated, and if I can provide anything, in return, will be happy to do so. Thanks. Lois Flyte lflyte29@cox.net Arizona, USA ___________________________ Yes, the Scotch Line is the road from Perth to Christie Lake. It is actually Concession 1 in Bathurst Township, and my Wilson family were among the first group of settlers from Scotland to be granted land in the new Perth Military Settlement in 1815. They actually arrived in Perth in April 1816, having spent the winter in the Barracks in Brockville before making the trek to Perth in the Spring. The Blairs came to Perth area in 1820, and settled on Concession 4 in Bathurst Twp. Hugh Blair and Mary Christie made the move to Manotick about 1850, and his brother, Henry Blair, b. 1832 in Bathurst Twp., owned a farm on Long Island and was a sawyer. Henry retired and sold his farm and was back in Bathurst, living with his brother James William Blair (my great-grandfather) in the 1891 census. Henry never married and died in 1903. I would be happy to make contact with anyone researching these families. One distant cousin, Muriel Blair Cameron did send me information back in the 1990s on her line from Hugh Blair, but she did not, at that time, have Euphemia Hall's parents' names. Thanks again for your help. Lois Flyte
November 19, 2009: My name is Ian J. Hawkins. My grandfather was David John Hawkins born at Manotick Station in 1874. I am very interested in your research. My great grandfather John Hawkins 1847-1929 also born Manotick Station I was always told was raised by neighbours because his parents had died. I would like to confirm this. ... John Hawkins
January 4, 2010: I have read with interest your research and emails about Moodies, Wilsons etc. I live in the Perth area, on the Scotch Line and live on a farm that was owned by a Moodie and across the road is another Moodie farm, likely the original one. I come from the Shaw, Matheson and Beeman families in Perth on my mother's side. On my father's side I come from the Stinson family who farmed on now Baseline Road Ottawa, and the Brown family of Huntley Township, Carleton County. Also come from Rosses of Ross Township near Cobden. Any information that I might help with, I am reachable at the above email. Would appreciate any information on my background. Happy New Year Ali Ross Swallowtail Farm Scotch Line
