Am now starting to post images of ancestors for people to admire.  Thought it would be good to add to the story and the lovely charts and images of gravestones that I am posting fairly frequently.  So today I am posting an image of William Leitch.

William was born in 1816 in Saltcoats, Scotland.  He, along with his parents and three sisters, emigrated to Canada in around 1832.  The moved first to the Lachine area then settled permanently to the South Branch in Cornwall Township in Ontario.  He is buried in Williamstown, Ontario at St Andrew’s United Church.

He bought a farm in 1852 and spent his life as a farmer in the area.  He married Nicholas Bryden and they had seven children.
