Myrna Casemore, Shirley Sprung, and Myrna’s husband Ray identified people in the reunion photo and created new photos with numbers and a separate list of names. I’ve taken the photo ids and listing to create an image with “hotspots” so that as you mouse over a person’s face the name pops up. However, this is a flash file that I have put in Dropbox (online storage) and it requires Adobe Flash Viewer. Click on the link below to locate the file in Dropbox and download it – then open the swf file. Sorry – it is a bit complicated but WordPress won’t allow it to be embedded in the posting.
If you are interested in the history of Scotland, especially as background for the Fleming heritage, check out TV Ontario programming. TVO is rerunning the TV series produced by BBC in 2008 and 2009. The story begins with the Picts, and passes through several bloody centuries of conflict and turmoil to the Stuarts and further trials to the present.

Welcome to this website about the Flemings of Derby Township in Grey County. This site is part of an ongoing project to tell the story of Alexander and Jean (Stewart) Fleming in emigrating with their children from Scotland to settle in Derby Township as pioneers. An earlier version of the family history was compiled and written by William Fleming, Christopher Alexander (C.A.) Fleming and Roy Franklin Fleming from 1909 to 1940. Ruth (Fleming) Larmour has collected more information since, and enlisted Gwen Harris to help organize and provide context. We will be adding to this site drafts of the chapters, resources being used, photos, announcements. We invite descendants of Alexander and Jean Fleming and anyone interested in the early Fleming history to contribute stories or further details. Follow this blog to receive notices about updates.
Gwen Harris, Ruth Larmour
