If you haven't aready done it, I suggest that you look into
obituaries/family histories in the Pembroke area. Of the 115 Lyttles
listed in the Ontario Cemeteries Finding Aid, 30 of them were buried in
Westmeath United/St. Andrews United cemetery in Westmeath Township,
Renfrew. There were quite a few more not so far away in Carp/Carleton
County. There are also quite a few Lytles buried in McNabb Township. The
Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogy Group has a listing for these cemeteries for
sale and I see that there is also a member of that group named LYTLE who
has written a family history for another surname.
In the 1880s, a series of County Atlases were produced for Ontario. Many
of these contain listings of subscribers, short biographies, and even
drawings of prominent people and houses. These atlases were reproduced in
1967 as a centennial project and are available in the reference section of
most Ontario libraries. McGill University has been digitizing them in its
Canadian County Atlas Digital Project.
