Ruth (Fleming) Larmour
Ruth has had a lifelong interest in the family history of the Flemings and Stewarts. Alexander Fleming and Jean Stewart are her great-great-grandparents. Her grandfather Roy F. Fleming worked with C.A. Fleming and William Fleming in the early 1900s to record the story of emigration and settlement. Ruth has inherited Roy’s papers and sketches and added to them. She leads tours of the family sites in Grey County every summer, and fosters interest in the family history at Fleming reunions.
Gwen is a friend with strong interest in history and a professional background in writing, research, and online learning, who has taken on bringing together the many stories, remembrances, and connections into a written account of the family history using the Fleming Family papers and historical research.
Janet is the great-great-grand-daughter of James Fleming (son of Alexander) and Grace Robertson. She and Ruth summer on the Fishing Islands where several Fleming descendants took up cottage lands. Janet is the photographer for most of the photographs on this site and in the book.
