May 27, 2011: Thanks to Michael Daley for the following: Hi Al & Laurie, just a line to say, A tombstone in St. John CEMETERY (at Enniskerry, Ontario), reads In Memory of Margaret Hughes beloved wife of John McCartin died Sept 1 1888 AGED 64 years,Native of county Armagh,Ireland John McCartin died Dec 3 1902 age 82 year, native of County Armagh Ireland, James McCartin died Nov,9 1934 age 75 years James O'Rourke, born dec 9 1857 son of Thomas O'Rouke and Catherine Keough ,married Bridget McCartin born Nov 26 ,1853, daughter of John McCartin & Margaret Hughes from County Armagh, three children , married into McEvoy, Dewan and Cole families, Laurie, you may not be old enough to remember a man by name of McCARTIN that lived at Billings Bridge, on bank street south of the tracks , His first name has escaped my memory , he was considered a recluse.???? I Did not know him personally. ... Michael Daley ___________________________________ I just read Michael's recent posting about the reclusive McCartin. He is thinking of Eddie McCartin. He lived in a homemade shack / shanty in the woods on the Billings property for years. With permission. Family lore (from the McCartins and O'Callaghans) has it that he was jilted at the altar. He closed up the house he had purchased on Main Street for his wife-to-be and never set foot inside the building again. At his death the shanty was removed. - Will Dunlop
