Re: Where to look?
In Response To: Re: Where to look? ()

Leah;

Unfortunately, there's not much available ONLINE for Ontario for the period 1840-1880. I did find Joseph and Mary's cemetery listing, by using the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid. You may have had this information already, but they are both buried in St. Mary's Anglican Church in Metcalf (reference MX-096) and you can write the London-Middlesex branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society for the full cemetery transcription information:

London-Middlesex Branch, OGS

Grosvenor Lodge, 1017 Western Road

London, Ontario, Canada

N6G 1G5

Checking their website, I also found a link to "Granny's Genealogy Garden," which includes many extractions of the 1851 Census. I checked the Metcalf census but couldn't find your family. You may want to look at the other townships on this site, one by one, to see if you can find your folk: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~granny2/index.html

I also checked the MARRIAGES of MIDDLESEX COUNTY (on that same website), but no luck.

I wish I could provide more help, my dear. I would also take a look at the LDS catalog to see what microfilms they may have. There is no Middlesex Archives as such, but many land records are held at the Ontario Archives in Toronto ... WELL worth the trip if you can swing it.

So, my dear, lemme know if I can offer any other assistance. All the best to you in your research.

: Hello Lisa,

: I have not heard of this book but I am very interested. I've been
: searching for my Great Great Grandfather, Joseph H. Wrinkle, who
: made his way to Canada & freedom in the late 1840's. The
: first sign I've found of him is in the 1861 Metcalfe Township,
: Middlesex County census listed as Joseph 'Winkle' with his wife
: Mary & baby son. I have located him in later census records
: but do not know where he was prior to 1861. If you have some
: time, please look to see if there any Wrinkle / Winkle (s)
: listed. It would be very much appreciated.

: Thank You,
: Leah (Wrinkle) Nicks
