Genealogy - New Developments

Peter McConnell of Brighton

Peter McConnell (1938 - 2010) was a well known actor, authour and story teller who hailed from the Hilton area and returned to Brighton to enrich the community with his talents. During research into the Opera House for HOH 2015 some of Peter's many writings came to my attention and I realized that I did not have his family documented in my database. That problem is now solved. This McConnell family came to the Brighton area from Prince Edward County in the 1850s and later settled near Hilton. If anyone can add details, please feel free.

Ben Thompson of Brighton

Another family history job came up while researching for HOH 2015 - that of Ben Thompson (1924 - 1998) who was a lawyer and judge besides playing in bands at Presqu'ile Pavilion in the 1940s along with Ted Snider. Now Ben and his family is included in Treebydan.
