Northumberland County:

Solomon R. BUSH, born ca 1812 in Canada West, is listed in the 1871 census, while his family is still living in Brighton under the care of his eldest daughter, Mercy. I cannot find his death although he would be in the Guiness Book of Records if his is still living! Samuel ROSEBUSH, also in Northumberland, is his uncle. Can anyone help?

Our Lady of Mount Carmel CEMETERY BOOK

Northumberland County:

I recieved a flyer from Kawartha Ancestral Research Assoication (KARA) recently which said that their local members have completed transcribing the names of all of the people buried at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hastings, Ontario. They gave a list of all the surnames that are in there records, and all of my ancestors from that area are listed. The article says that the full cemetery transcription will soon be available for sale through KARA. Have you heard of this yet? If you know someone that has a copy of these records and could do a lookup for me I would appreciate any help you could give. This could help to get me past several brick walls in my research.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Contact Dave KEARNEY of Kane, PA at raznun@penn.co

The HAYDENs came from County Wicklow, Ireland in the 1790's! Thomas was born 1826 and died 1908. Reginald, my great-grandfather was born in Mar 1875 and died in 1950's. My grandfather is Charles Edwin "Pat" HAYDEN, 1904-1964. All these men are buried in the Union Cemetary of Port Hope!

The Family had a foundry on Caven Steet, Port Hope, where the "Hayden Plough" was made and sold to farmers in the area. Does anyone know the history of Hayden Road, located near Cobourg?

Dr. Anson HAYDEN was an Irish rebel, a town councilor in the Bay of Quinte, and was imprisoned in the Kingston jail. Does anyone know anything else about him?

I'm seeking any other kind of information of whatever nature! Please contact: Ian WESTELL of Ottawa at ianhw@sympatico.ca

I am aware of the family oral history which states that my g-g-gf Remembrance RICHARDS married Liza HOLLENBACH and lived in Northumberland County, Ontario. He was born in the US and came to Canada after the American Revolution, settling in Ontario. Early Militia rolls show a John HOLLENBECK, born 1798, serving with the regiment from Hamilton-Haldiman Townships. I am unsure if HOLLENBECK was a UEL. I am interested in any family information on RICHARDS or HOLLENBACH/HOLLENBECK.

Where could I do further research on these people in Northumberland County and in particular, Hamilton and Haldimand Townships? What sources are available? Who is a good resource contact? Please reply to: Paul RICHARDS of Ottawa at lenoreb@netcom.ca

Looking for information on Samuel WASHBURN, born c. 1810/11 in New York. He came to Northumberland as a young man and married Susannah SAGER about 1829/30.

They had 13 children. The eldest, Daniel WASHBURN, b. 1831, married an Irish gal named Harriet, according to the 1871 census. Samuel and his sons were carpenters and farmers. Ten of the children immigrated back to the U.S and settled in northern Michigan in the late 1870-1880. Daniel remains in Northumberland with at least four of his children. Mary Ann (WASHBURN) EMANS, William WASHBURN, Frederick WASHBURN, SAMUEL WASHBURN and his twin brother, Sanford WASHBURN born 20 July 1843, Louisa WASHBURN, Mariah (WASHBURN) TYLER, George WASHBURN, Willett WASHBURN and Sarah Margaret (WASHBURN) TYLER all go west to Michigan. Do not know what became of their son, Lewis WASHBURN, b. c. 1836, or a female named Madora WASHBURN, b. c. 1864. Samuel dies before 1871 around Campbellford, Brighton Township, Northumberland Co., Ontario. Susannah dies in Central Lake, Antrim Co., Michigan on May 5, 1880.

Can anyone tell me where and when Samuel WASHBURN died and was buried? Contact: Diane L. (WASHBURN) RICE at DIANELRICE@aol.com

The BRADY family moved to Campbellford sometime before 1881 and had a general store called McKenna and Brady until about 1907. They came from Waseca County, Minnesota. About 1907, the family moved to Alberta, Canada and had a farm that covered about a square mile. Farming was so tough during this time that they gave the bank the farm land deed and moved to Minneapolis, MN.

I am a grandson of the store owner and am looking for any information on this family.
