M, #33603, b. circa 1780, d. 1825

  • Death*: 1825; Montreal, Quebec; "Sadly, James died in the cholera epidemic sweeping through Montreal when he was returning to Ireland in 1825." per "The Morrows of Hilton", by Pat Smart & Ruby Vancamp, Ch.8, pg. 52, "Brighton Township" by Florence Chatten, 2009.1
  • Residence: before 1818; Bally James Duff, County Cavan, Ireland; "In 1818, James Morrow, with his wife, Margaret Smith, and six-week-old son John, left Bally James Duff, County Cavan, Ireland, to sail to Canada." per "The Morrows of Hilton", by Pat Smart & Ruby Vancamp, Ch.8, pg. 52, "Brighton Township" by Florence Chatten, 2009.1
  • Residence*: 1818; Conc 4 Lot 2, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1818, James Morrow, with his wife, Margaret Smith, and six-week-old son John, left Bally James Duff, County Cavan, Ireland, to sail to Canada. The voyage took thirteen long weeks. This was an ambitious journey. Sadly, James died in the cholera epidemic sweeping through Montreal when he was returning to Ireland in 1825. His widow then married Charles S. Becker, who joined her on the farm. On their arrival in Canada, the Morrow family had settled on the George Little farm (bordered by Highway 401 on the south and County Road 30 on the west)." per "The Morrows of Hilton", by Pat Smart & Ruby Vancamp, Ch.8, pg. 52, "Brighton Township" by Florence Chatten, 2009.1
  • Immigration*: 1819; Ontario; "He recalled that his grandfather John Morrow, was only six weeks old when he arrived from Ireland with his parents who homesteaded in the area. The Morrow family continued to live in the district since that time in 1842 with the arrival of his ancestors from Ireland." (from Diamond Wedding Anniversary newspaper clipping, copied from The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington, Reel 2, Toronto Metro Reference Library, Nov 2007)
    Note: Not exactly sure what the second part of this paragraph means. Did more of the family come in 1842 to join the first group who came in 1819? Can someone clarify this??2

John H. Nix Jr.1,2

M, #33604, b. 25 November 1795, d. circa 1870

  • Death*: circa 1870; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; The death of John Nix, Jr. appears to have happened in or just before 1870. There is no death registration or note in the 181 Census about it, but John Wright Proctor, last owner of Proctor House, says that it was "1870 approximately" when the events occurred that resulted in the infamous Proctor House Ghost. When John Nix, Jr. died the family was indebeted to John Edward Proctor, probably due to the mortgages re the wharf at Gosport some years before. The stry goes that Proctor would not release JOhn Nix's body to his family until the debt was paid and as a result, John Nix haunts Proctor House. The imminently believable Procotr family certanly believed they had seen bright lights above the house many times, which were taken to be the ghost of John Nix. These lights were later thought to be due to gas from the creek and low areas north of the house, but the legend of the Proctor House ghost persists. (Dan Buchanan, Oct 7 2017)2
