Gilbert Amos died just after his youngest child was born, around 1822, at age 32. The couple had 7 young children ranging in age from 9 to 1 years old. Several of the children emigrated to Ontario, Canada as young adults. My newly discovered cousin's ancestor was one of those kids. I had never known about the Veitch branch of the family tree before I started researching ancestry. I am very excited to connect with a relative who has an oral history of their stories. Her ancestors emigrated to Canada a generation before mine (in this tree branch). They ended up settling about 200 kilometres from one another, and I doubt they were even aware. How fitting that we connected on "Youngest" week!
