Hello Chris


Couldn’t resist following on, from your mention of Parry Sound below.   Would 
you know of any researchers in your area?


I’m chasing a Co. Tyrone fellow who was a munitions factory worker in Parry 
Sound in 1917 -1918 – so looking for local help.   Would there be any sources 
in Parry Sound that might help?   Or any special local history of the munitions 
factory in that era?


Details that I have are as follows:


Andrew Mitchell


*       born 22 July 1877 at Castlemellon (near Cullion), Donagheady parish, 
co. Tyrone


*       came to Canada probably in 1904


*       was a worker in the munitions factory at Parry Sound [Ontario] on 20 
March 1917 when he married Rose (or Roseanna) Gagne (she was also a munitions 
factory worker)


*       in Parry Sound still on 27 September 1918, when they had a stillborn 
son (attendant doctor Dr Biehn)


*       both died in Toronto in early February 1920, from the influenzas 
epidemic (buried at St John’s Cemetery, presumably York County, Toronto)


Incidentally, this was a case of a Presbyterian/R.C. marriage – and not the 
only one in this family!


Sincere thanks
