The old Goss family that I emphasized in this blog is connected to me through my father's mother's side of the family and through his grandmother Amarilla Barclay Dawes Urton.
Yes, Amarilla was married three times. Her first husband George Angus Barclay was murdered in 1898. So she remarried to a J.G. Dawes and that ended in divorce. About 10 year later she married again to a George Urton and they were together for the remainder of their lives. Amarilla and her life are featured in in the following blog The Barclay's of Pine River. It is starting to get very interesting as I enter the 1890's for Pine River, Minnesota!! You learn about Amarilla and George and more in this blog:

If you have family connections to Ontario or Quebec join me as I travel along! I will be following along two great rivers there the Ottawa and the St. Lawrence. What stories rivers could tell sigh!
