Ontario, Canada - From The Ramara Chronicle July/August 2011
Surprisingly, the 1836-1837 directory does not list Ramara’s first two settlers, Patrick Corrigan and Arthur Kelly. It is believed that Patrick had left the area by 1837. By the early 1840s, a Michael Corrigan and members of his family had relocated from Brock Township to settle along Concession 7 of Mara. For years, family researchers have been looking for documents that may link the first settler Patrick to Michael Corrigan, but to date no such evidence has been uncovered.
We do know Arthur Kelly, known as “Little Kelly, was was born in County Tyrone, Ireland, in 1775. In 1824 he initiated an Upper Canada land petition for land in Ramara, stating he had a wife and five children, and he was residing in Brock Township. Kelly did not arrive in Mara until 1827. It is not known how long he stayed. By 1837 his first wife had passed away, and he was again living in Brock. He remarried and had 10 children in this union. It was not until the early 1860s that Kelly relocated to Mara, on Concession 13, Lot 6, where he remained until his death in 1887 at the age of 112.
