  • Note:
    A farmer. Of Irish ancetry, and Presbyterian faith. 1871 census has him married to Elizabeth, in 1881 his wife is Sarah. I don't know whether they're both the same woman. Although both are Irish, there's a 10-yr age discrepancy. Elizabeth's birth was abt 1830, in Ireland. Sarah's birth was abt 1840, in Ontario. I'm inclined to believe that they're separate people, and have entered them here as such. I'm also inclined to think that the kiddies born after Thomas, are probably all Sarah's offspring. The thing that bothers me about this, is that I've not yet found a marriage record for Joseph & Sarah in Simcoe County between 1871 and 1877 (those applicable years that I've got fully transcribed).

    1871 census shows daughters Sophia & Sarah, ages 12 and 10 respectively. Neither forename appears with the family on the 1881 census. In 1881, there's an 11-yr-old named Mary. This child is undoubtedly one of the two elder "S" girls present in 1871, but I've not determined whether she's Mary Sophia or Mary Sarah. I strongly suspect that she's Mary Sophia, but need corroborating evidence to say for sure.
