My great grandfather John Acton who came from Castle Bar in Ireland landed in quebec in 1832. Settled in what was to becom Acton's Corners (named after him). He was a shoemaker and also a stone-mason and worked on the Rideau Canal. He also built other buildings in the community - one being the Oxford mills Grist Mill. He died July 20th, 1891 and was buried in the Church of England cemetery, Kemptville (1807-1891).
Hope this is of some intrest to you.
