6 "Suddenly at his residence at Breadalbane on the 11th inst. Mr. David Orr, in his 81st year. He emigrated with his father and family from Scotland in 1819 and settled at New Glasgow. They were among the first settlers who, with heroic toil and indomitable perseverance transformed the rough forest into that beautiful settlement. Mr. Orr lived in New Glasgow till a few years before his death. He was a true-hearted, humble and intelligent Christian and for him 'Death had no sting since his Saviour has died.' " [PATRIOT Sat. 29 Jan, 1881 page 2] Orr, David Rennie (I2235)
 
7 "Yes, I did know about the Newfie[Newfoundland] connection. If my memory serves me right,
from my mother's tales, Cummings was a Newfie seaman who was the first mate on a
ship with a PEI captain. The captain had a foreboding they would not return
safely from their current journey and asked Cummings if he survived and the
captain didn't, would he make his way to PEI and see that the captain's wife
was OK. Sure enough, they were shipwrecked and Cummings was picked up by
another ship and made his way to PEI. (North River I think) In due time he
married the captain's widow and they had a son. Several years later, sailing
ships were slow, the captain showed up. He had been picked up by another ship
that was going in the opposite direction and had been pretty well around the
world. He, needless to say, wanted his wife back. So Cummings took his son and
left. This son, technically illegitimate, is the ancestor from whom we are
descended. Every family has a skeleton or two!"

-Catherine Maud (Kells) Kemp 28/01/2001
Ed Note:
The above story is not born out by the facts, but it makes a good story and is a good example of how facts can become skewed with time. His son was NOT illegitimate, but in fact from a previous marriage. What is true iis the son John married his step-sister, Catherine Hertz's daughter by her 1st husband. George died on December 4, 1824 and widower Cummings married the widow Hertz on March 12, 1825 - just 3 months after her husband died; so maybe there is a grain of truth to Mary (Stevenson) Kells' story above!

22 A copy of a letter from his mother Margaret Anderson Stevenson was written from Wardell Park, Scotland on March 10, 1823 to Robert Stevenson, Near St. Andrews, NB in reply to one he wrote from there on November 9, 1822. In reference to his letter she notes: "I ... am very glad that you are all in health."

I begin with the births of our father, Robert Stevenson 1786 and Janet Crawford, his wife. (Born 1786)
1 have not room on this page to give many particulars. At some future time I may write a more detailed account of some events that might prove interesting, to future generations of the family.

I shall only say here, that on the 28th day of March in the year 1818, our father bade farewell to his family in the village of Howwood, parish of Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, Scotland. He took the road by Kilmarnock arid Ballarntrae to Port Patrick, thence by Packet to Donaghadee, Ireland, thence to Belfast
thence in the Brig, Active of Ayr, Capt. McLean, - He sailed for St.. Andrews, NB, where he arrived on the Anniversary of the birth of George the Third towit, June 4th in the year 1818

He assisted in loading the Brig, with Timber at Digdeguash, which took about four weeks for which he received his board and, one dollar per day, then coming to St. Andrews got employment at his trade, shoemaking with the late, Benjamin W. Stymest, Tanner, who ever after proved his friend. he continued in his employ, until a short time before the arrival of his family. He had commenced business on his own account in a shop, in one end, of the old. Market House, St. Andrews.

Our Mother and six of us, namely Neti Alexander, Charles, John, Matthew, Robert and James, embarked on board the Ship Jessie & Flora, Captain Robert Love, who proved a kind, Considerate man to Mother and us. On Sabbath morning the first day o of August 1819 we set sail from the West Quay of Greenock. We had a comfortable pleasant passage of five weeks and three days to St. John,We were all. ashore at Mr Jaspar Stymests, and were most kindly treated. We were pressed by a Mr. Campbell, a Lochwinnoch man to lodge with him, that night. We were very well treated. Next day we returned on board the ship, waiting for the packet, - when she arrived, we were by Captain Love's directions, put on board the Sloop, "Lady Dashwood", John Pendlebury Master, On the fifteenth of September, we started for St. Andrews,
where we arrived all well, on the Sixteenth day, at eleven o'clock, a.m.

28 According to the 1901 census record the head of the household is John Melvin whose wife is Lena. They have three children listed, including Maud (age 1 year) who was born 22 Sep 1899. Appearing at the bottom of the list are two other entries, Ethel Orser identified as a sister in law of the head of household. We know this to be Lena's younger sister. Also listed is Lee Orser (age 1 year) born 14 Jun 1899.also listed as a son of John Melvin. We know Lena could not possibly be the mother of both children if we assume the birth dates are correct. Therefore, given the surnames of Lee and Ethel, it is logical to conclude that Lee is the son of her sister Ethel Orser. Ethel is not known to have been married prior to 1902 when she married John Clendenning. The implication is that she would have been a young unwed mother staying in the home of her older sister with her infant child.

Subsequent research would indicate that this conclusion is incorrect. A NB birth registration documents the birth of a Lee Melvin on 14 Jun 1898, to Joseph Melvin and Lena Orser exactly one year prior to our Lee Orser. This weakens the above conclusion and strengthens the idea that the census taker may have made an error and/or made an incorrect assumption.

49 After our trip to PEI, I was curious as to whether my grandfather (James Tyrus Stevenson, B. 3/14/1868; D 12/18/1944) was a naturalized citizen of the U.S. The answer is yes. The date was July 17, 1907. The same is true of his brother who homesteaded in North Dakota at the same time (John Franklin, B. 12/3/1866; D 2/2/1951). Their cousin (James Reuben, B 3/30/1883; D 7/25/1983) was naturalized June 17, 1918. Just thought I'd pass the information along.
