The first recorded names in the Cleary ancestry are that of William  Cleary and Mary O’Rielly, my G.G. Grandparents. They were the parents of Michael-1- Cleary and William-2- Cleary. William-2- and his wife Nora Ryan were my G. Grandparents. It would appear that William-1- and Mary, sons Michael-1-, William-2- and his wife Nora Ryan, immigrated to Canada in 1858 and they show up in the 1861 Mara census. Michael-1- married Catherine Smith in St Columbkilles on Jan 6, 1869 and the record indicates that the Clearys’ were from County Tipperary Ireland. →">Continue reading

Orillia Times August 1906
Udney
Thomas McDonald, the most popular cream collector for Newman Brothers has retired from his situation and contemplates migrating to the north.
Orillia Times May 26, 1907 Rathburn
The artistic and massive butter factory which has been undergoing erection for the past six weeks is nearing completion.  It makes a great boon to this locality.  And will greatly lessen the slavish work of churning butter and peddling to the limited retailer.  The patrons will also receive a higher price for the butter as Newman Bros. manufacture only first class articles..  The cream is gathered, manufacture and put upon the best wholesale market for the small cost of 4 cents per pound.  Newman Bros. prepose giving a free picnic at the opening of the factory, in the course of a couple of weeks.
