I am researching Seth Burr GOULD Sr. and his wife, Hanna SAGER. They married on 6 August 1799 in or near Cramahe Township. She is listed as b. 10 Jun 1781 and d. 2 July 1846. I have no information on their parents. I saw on the Northumberland County web page a listing for a John SAGER in Murray Township.

Can anyone tell me how accurate the Canadian Ontario Census are? My great grandfather was born in Brighton Township in 1852. There is only one family in this location at this time. I just got my hands on the 1861 census for the county and it did not include his name. He had a brother named Robert who was part of this BULLOCK family. The father is Charles, mother is Elizabeth. The 1861 cenus names them and a sister, Sarah, Caroline and another brother, Charles. My great grandfather was Carl Carlisle BULLOCK, b. 1852, d. 1934. Sometimes he was known as C. C. BULLOCK, but the census does not list him.

I am attempting to piece together my mothers parent's families. These will be the ancestors of Robert BROWN, b. 1875 and d. 1946, who married Agnes KINGHORN at Port Hope in 1911. They raised five children.

Robert BROWN's father was Levi William BROWN, b. 17 Oct 1835, but may have used the name BRUN, BRUNNE or BRAUN. He may have been German in origin. He married Mary HEWSON.

Robert's wife is Agnes KINGHORN who came from Stalwart, MI. Her sister, Jennie KINGHORN married a William George BROWN, b. 1869, d. 1964 in Port Hope. There is a total of 10 siblings in the KINGHORN family. Robert BROWN and Agnes KINGHORN BROWN are at rest at Union Cemetery in Port Hope.

If you have any small insight or story to share related to these family origins, or the families they generated, please contact me at: Skip GOTTFRIED at witan1@aol.com

The parents of John William INSLEY were John and Fanny [Osborne] INSLEY. John is buried in Asphodel Twp, Peterbrough Co, but Fanny is buried in Percy Twp. The apparent reason for this is she lived as a widow with her son John William INSLEY, a barber in Warkworth and died there 30 Oct 1895. I have checked the OCFA and cannot find the place of her interment or burial. Can anyone help me on this?

Back in 1856, a family by the name of CUMMINGS had a son, Charles Napier. He said he was born in Oak Hills near Warkworth. In 1883 that son emigrated to Chicago, IL.

The father was Scotish and said to play the bagpipes, but possibly came from the US. I can't seem to locate the father or his wife (DAVIS) whose brother was Samual Emory DAVIS, b. 1763. Can anyone help me with researching Percy Township and the whereabouts of CUMMINGs?

My GGGrandfather, John WRIGHT, b. 1796 in Ireland passed through the Troy, NY area. His spouse is Sophia DRAPER, b. 1796 and was Dutch. They moved to Ontario in 1836, to Mt. Forest, Ontario in 1848. They had 4 sons and one daughter born in NY, a daughter Pheobe born ONT 1840. We have no record of family whereabouts in 1836-1848.

The Cramahe Twp census for 1804/1848 shows a John WRIGHT family of 5, tinsmith, nonproprietor living at Lot 32, Con. 2, Colbourne Village. Can anyone tell me if this John WRIGHT may be the same as above?
