Marriage: 8.22.1883 Port Elmsley

Carleton Place Herald Aug 29, 1883, Perth Courier of Aug 31, 1883
"MacChesney - Weeks. Married at Port Elmsley on the 22nd Aug, by Rev. J. Mylne, Mr. John MacChesney of Perth to Miss Annie Weeks, sister of Jas. Weeks, grocer, Carleton Place."

Land transfer and census records show that Annie and John were living in Liskard, Nipissing, in 1901 - seemingly making her the first of the kids to establish themselves in that part of the country. At the time of father James Weekes' death in 1906, his obituary shows them living in New Liskeard.

From the book “The Real Cobalt” by Anson A. Gard published in 1908
