    Very interesting!
    I am currently doing research on a property my father converted into a Ralston Purina feed mill in the late 70’s.
    It is located at 8073 county rd 29 , Addison On. I believe it is currently owned by Agribrands/Cargill.
    I would certainly like to hear from you if you have any historical knowledge of this property.
    Thank you.

    I am helping the owner of the Anglican church in Addison with some repairs and we are wondering if there is someone we can ask about getting into the crawl space under the church, is there an inside entrance?? thanks for your help.

    Does anyone know where the stained glass windows went from the Anglican Church in Addison? Curious where they are and if they have found a good home. Also wondering about the pews.

    I currently live in the large square brick and stone home owned by Coleman Lewis. I see two photos of the Howe family sitting on our front porch. Is there any other information you might have about this home. I would be very interested in reading it. Great thanks.

    Enjoyed your site immensely. My great-grandmother Emilia Martin Lavigne was born in Addison in 1849 or 1850. Her parents were Peter Martin and Julia Laplante. She died in Alexandria Bay, NY in 1918 while visiting family. According to a press article, she had a sister and brother who were residents of Addison at the time. If you have any info on the Martins of Addison it would be appreciated. Thanks.

    We live on Addison-Greenbush Road in a home that appears on the 1860 map belonging to Dr. J.A. Chambers. A large cabinet with his name printed inside one of the doors and on the back panel is still here. Do you have any information on him, his practice, or this farm? My wife’s family (Kilborns) had owned the property since the 1920s. Harold and Addie Percival (my wife’s maternal grandparents) were next door on a farm that is now a large horse farm – Addie was an artist and Harold was a farmer who did some mentoring for Joe Hudson who went on to create Burnbrae farms. Would you have any information on them as well? My wife went to the Addison school in your photos, which is now being demolished – the Orange Hall in Addison has also recently been torn down.
