Seeking source for Catholic Marriage records in the Hastings Area that took place about 1840-1850. The earliest date of the Church records of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is 1847. I am finding the Baptismal records of ancestors baptised at Our Lady, but would like to know when their parent were married and if that marriage record would list the parents of the bride and groom. Any information would be appreciated.

I am trying to find info on McKAGUES in the area. My gggrandfather was George McKAGUES who married (2nd) Susan TOWER. The only info we have on him is a piece of paper that says Mariposa Ontario Canada. His oldest son by his second marriage, Joseph McKAGUE, was born in Canada in 1847, but no town or place is given. Older children: Rodney, Isaac, Will, Robert, Charles. Daughters Rosina or Rosanna, Clarissil, Julia and Esther may be from first marriage. Children Joseph, George, Mary, Maria and Lavina from second. Older boys were likely born in Scotland, Rodney and Isaac for sure, or Canada. OCFA list George Albert McKague, William McKague and Rosanna McKague buried in Baltimore United Cemetery in Hamilton, Northumberland County. Does anyone have any info on this family?

CRAMAHE Township:

In 1814 Harriet CRANDELL was born to Palmer and Deborah Palmer CRANDELL in Cramahe Twp. Harriet married John Wood COPP in Cramahe Township. It is believed that they were married in the Baptist Church in Cramahe as that was the church where John Wood Copp was a member. Does anyone know of any records that would serve as proof of the birth of Harriet and marriage of Harriet and John?

I am just beginning my Canadian research and am grasping at straws. I am trying to establish the connection of Deborah PALMER and Ebenzer PALMER of New York, who I believe is her father. Any help or guidance will be appreciated.
