New November 26, 2010: Note: I had a reference on this page (removed today) to the effect that Mary Ann Heron was a member of the Heron family from Heron Road. Bob Mackett has corrected my error, below. ... Al _______________________________ Al: I do not think that Mary Ann Heron came from Heron Road - (see below She was probably born in Ireland, the d/o John Heron and maybe Frances ORielly) http://www.bytown.net/scottrichardmayor.htm Bob Mackett Richard William Scott M B: 24 FEB 1825 , Prescott, Ontario Father: William James M.D. Scott Mother: Sarah Ann McDonell --[Sarah Ann b. 1801 d/o Col.
