Tombstone Tuesday - James & Isabella Crerar

~ From Northern Ontario Gravemarker Website
James & his wife Isabella (nee Carmichael) Crerar came to Canada in the 1870's somewhere between 1874 and 1876.
They were my Grandfather James Thompson's Grandparents on his Mother's side.  Their daughter Isabella Crerar married Andrew Thompson.
I don't have many photos of them, but here is a link to one I posted when I first started blogging.
James was born in Methven, Perthshire, Scotland.  Isabella was born on the Isle of Islay, Scotland.  They met while James was a teacher in Blackrock where Isabella lived.
James & Isabella had 12 children; Isabella was the first born in Canada:
David (1865-1869), Margaret (1866-?), Jane (1868-1869), James (1870-1938), William Marshall (1872-1872), Walter (1874-1905), Isabella (1876-1954), Mary Ann (1878-1948), Flora (1880-1947), Sarah (1883-1979), Bertha (1885-1949) and Catherine Winnifred (1894-1966).
