Information Wanted ! (of missing emigrants)

Notices published in various newspapers, by family and friends, seeking missing emigrants. This section will be updated whenever additional "information wanted" items are received.

Information Wanted.
RICHARD MONAGAN, Cooper, from the county of Meath, in Ireland, wishes to hear of his brother PATRICK, who left Ireland in May 1827, for Liverpool, from whence he sailed for Quebec. He was last seen in Montreal but is supposed to have returned to Quebec ; occasionally works as a Cooper and sometimes as a Sawyer in Shipyards.
Any information respecting the said Patrick will be thankfully received by the Editor of the Montreal Gazette, or W. Crooks, Grimsby, Upper Canada, where his brother now resides.
Grimsby, September 13th, 1830.

Left His Home!
Alexander Gordon Oliver, left his Father's house in Edinburgh, 28th, May 1845, and has not since returned; it has been ascertained that he went to Glasgow under the assumed name of "James Thompson," from whence he sailed to Quebec, where all trace of him has been lost. He is sixteen years of age; five feet four inches in height; of a ruddy complexion, hair brown, eyes hazel. His absence has thrown his family into the greatest affliction; in fact, his mother has ever since been confined to bed.
Any person knowing where the said lad is stopping, and addressing a line to Mr. Alpin McIntosh, Dorchester Street, Montreal, or to the Banner and Globe Office, will be handsomely rewarded for his trouble. June 18 1846 [sic]
P.S. Should this meet the eye of Alexander, he may rest assured that his leaving his home and his parents will be forgotten and forgiven; all that is asked of him is that he will return home and relieve their anxiety. Globe & Mail Nov. 11, 1845 pg. 2.
