BIOGRAPHY (Alexander G McBeth: Came to Maryborough, Ont in 1861 and pursued his trade as carpenter for many years, later going into the manufacturing of pumps. He was very fond of reading and also took an active interest in church matters, being one of the promoters of the first Presbyterian church established in Moorefield, ONT. He was Sabbath School teacher for over 30 years, and a highly respected and first-class citizen. Census of 1901 confirms Alexander as a Pumpmaker.

Notes: I believe the "G" middle initial s/b George.......

Alexander is my Great Grandfather..............have been attempting to determine his Father/Mother for some years.....unsuccessfully....
