You can contact me if you have an interest in the history of the Way Family in Russell County. I have most of the family tree worked out going back to the original settlers; Daniel and Samuel Way.

Glenburn(e) is at the corner of the 7th Concession in North Plantagenet Twp. and the County Road that runs south from Wendover to Pendleton Ontario.

Pendleton Airport is nearby (today Gatineau Soaring Club) and the Nation Golf Course. In the old days there was a school, church, cheese factory for the Johnston, Derby, Wylie, Anderson and others. I believe there was even a sawmill erected on the creek.

Do you have a location for the Way farm? The Way family is in the Clarence Cemetery.

I think the original location was Clarence Lot 1-32. I know about the Ways in Clarence Cemetary - they are all related to me. In fact I was at the cemetary in October to photograph the headstone enscriptions.

Sorry for the delay in answering your query. I've taken a long holiday from genealogy research and only recently got back into it.

Daniel H. Way (1848 - 1917) was married to Catherine Johnston (1853-1940). Daniel's parents were Samuel Way (1813-1879) who was married to Mary McGill (1816-1901). Samuel was a brother or cousin to my gg grandfather Daniel who also settled in Russell County.
