    I am interested in researching my ancestors who settled in the Frankville area.

    My grandfather was Malcolm Stanley Lehigh. His second wife, my grandmother, was Sadie Beulah Bigford.

    Any information and/or contact information would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

      I just went through our obituaries and news clippings and could find nothing specific on your family names. There is some information on our website under Lehigh, News stories, the hamlet, and the cemetery. If you haven’t already this may help you.

    “One of Kitley’s outstanding citizens of the 20 Century Hiram McCrae lies in this cemetery. Hiram was born in Montague Township July 2 1807 son of United Empire Loyalist Edward McCrae originally of Albany, NY. Joining the Leeds Militia, McCrae rose to the rank of Colonel. He settled in Kitley in 1837 at the age of 30 and became deeply involved in municipal affairs. Appointed a magistrate in 1853 he served in that position for 35 years until his death in 1888. He was also elected Reeve of the township in 1858, He was Warden of the United Counties three times in 1864, 1867 and 1873.”

    His surname was spelled McCrea, not McCrae.
