Fergusons Falls

Originally known as Millford, Fergusons Falls was renamed in honor of the early settler Captain Ferguson when a post office was established there. This was the closest village to the Stafford farm and would have been a source for supplies, postal services, blacksmith services, social activities, and later St. Patrick's Church. Thomas McCaffrey was the first settler coming in 1815. McCaffrey was apparently a close friend of Tobias Stafford and Betsy (McGarry) Stafford. Thomas was one of the witnesses to their marriage ceremony in St. John's Church in Perth. He also signed his name as witness to one of Tobias' later land transactions, and was present at the baptisms of some of the Stafford children. Other early Ferguson Falls residents were John and Patrick Quinn, Patrick and Martin Doyle, James Carberry, James Power and William Scanlon. Two Stafford girls married into the Quinn family. The Hollinger family was also among the first settlers. By 1857, Ferguson Falls was booming. John Doyle was the Innkeeper, James McCaffrey was listed in the business directory as a Wagon Maker, John & M. McCaffrey were the local Blacksmiths. John Stafford, Tobias Stafford and Elizabeth McGarry's son was the area Shoemaker, and would later open a shoe store in Almonte, then in Perth. There was also a sawmill and a grist mill owned by Robert Blair and a hotel owned by Charles Hollinger.

Your reference would indicate that both you and Sherry are correct.  An

accepted thesis is considered as having been published and is put into the

library.  In 1943 the thesis would have been typewritten and bound (as most

were until the late 1980s or early 1990s when graduate schools began to

accept computer generated work).  Usually no more than 5 or 6 copies were

generated via carbon paper.  You should be able to obtain a copy of the

thesis via interlibrary loan now that you know where it is.

Dear Donna,

I don't know about a breakthrough but I had a look in my data base for a
Thomas HOLLINGER  in Ontario.  Of the 26 HOLLINGERs in the 1871 Census
Index there is only one Thomas.  He is Thomas HOLLINGER  (age 26 born
Ireland) in Hastings Co., Sidney Twp.  Sidney Twp. contains the
towns/villages of Frankford, Trenton and the west side of Belleville.

Is he possibly your Thomas?

   I think I can help you a lot.  I believe your Thomas was a sibling to my
great grand father's second wife, Elizabeth Ryan.  They were from Lanark
Ontario and I have done a lot of research in that area.  Here is a
that I wrote about the family in my Sullivan family history:
The Ryan Family----
        James T. Sullivan's second wife was Elizabeth Ryan, a descendant of
another pair of long time friends and neighbors of the Sullivans in Lanark
County, Anthony Ryan and Elizabeth Cavanaugh.  Anthony is listed among the
earliest settlers to the Bathurst District.  He arrived from County
Ireland in 1820 on a military ship and was listed on the passenger manifest
as having a wife and one son under the age of 12.  On March 16, 1825,
Ryan was given a free grant of land on the west half of lot 6 on concession
in Lanark township.  Anthony was classified as a military emigrant which
means he came from Ireland to Canada aboard one of the troop ships that was
in Britain to drop off discharged soldiers.  Rather than return the ships
empty to Canada British emigrants were offered free passage.
        Anthony and Elizabeth's children married into many familiar names
the area such as Hollinger, Hartney, Quinn, and Stafford.
Here is the descendancy chart.  You will find Thomas as part of generation
son of John Ryan and Elizabeth Hollinger (another collateral line of mine).

Hi Sharon,

Michael, I see has forwarded one of Richard Johnston's e-mails.  Richard is
a grandson of Kenneth (the second Kenneth, b 1918) a brother of Melvyn and
Wesley.  I have a much more remote connection to this family (via Samuel, b
1753, probably near Miesau, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany) and all of my
information on this particular family I obtained from either Michael Bogues
or Richard Johnston.

Re your questions:
> Are any of them still alive? If not who was the last survivor? It sort of
> looked like it was Wesley. Is that right? Did he have any children?

I don't know, although as some of the 14 children were born after 1930, I
would say most likely.
I don't know.
I don't know.
Yes, he had at least one child, Bonnie.

I would prefer, as most of this research was Richard's, that he answer on
any details of these more recent HOLLINGER's.

I have a lot of information on earlier HOLLINGERs and would be very
interested in learning your friend's name and address and how she connects
in to the Southern Ontario HOLLINGERs.

As far as I know, all of the German origin HOLLINGERs (from the 1871 Census
of Ontario) are descendants of one or the other of Samuel's (b 1753) sons
Ludwig (b 1788) or George (b 1800).  All of the Irish origin HOLLINGERs
(from the Census) are likely related to these brothers as well but more

I was at the Ontario Archives and accessed their microfilmed copy of the mausoleum entombments.


John Dodds' died Feb. 22, 1917 aged 69 in Toronto. His wife Mary Jane Hollinger dates are 1855-1918.


Rachel Dodds' dates are June 2, 1836 - June 17, 1929. Her husband James Hollinger dates are June 19, 1846 - March 14, 1916.


Annie Hollinger's dates are Feb. 12, 1881 - March 25, 1931.


Lavinia Victoria Hollinger's dates are Feb. 3, 1861 - May 29, 1927. Her husband Alman Harrison Graham's dates are March 2, 1859 - Sept 7, 1917.


In the vital records I found John Dodds was born in Caledon Twp to parents George Dodds and Catherine Rutledge. He was an undertaker. He died while living at 72 Triller Ave, Toronto.


Mary Jane Dodds died Dec. 12, 1918 in Hanover. She was a grocer/shopkeeper. She was born in Toronto to John Hollinger and Ann Jane Hanson.

japaints2 Posted: 15 Jun 2010 1:47PM GMT Classification: Query Surnames: Hollinger I am researching a group of Hollinger families of irish origin and possibly all related who came to Ontario around the 1840s. My branch lived in Wellington County. At exactly the same time period a group of German Hollingers were settling very close by at Waterloo. I am beginning to think that they may have been related further back and my Hollingers were among the Palatine group who went to Ireland. No documents yet, but would love to talk to anyone with similar info

Your James his father is a Hollinger from Ireland and His mother is a Hollinger from Germany or of Dutch decent. The records are in the Ontario collection.
