Re: Blacks in Canada, 1861
In Response To: Blacks in Canada, 1861 ()


I think I've found your Samuel Williams. There were several listed but this one in Windsor most closely matches the family you describe (Windsor is fairly close to Colchester).

Essex County, Windsor, pg 31

Samuel B. Williams, 31, b. USA, mulatto, teacher, religion is Episcopal Methodist.
Wife is Loire, 36, b. USA, mulatto, same religion. Their chidren, all mulatto, all Epis Meth: Sarah Ann 10, b. USA; Daniel J 8, b. USA, Joseph H. 6, b. U.S. (Upper Canada) and Samuel C. 3, b. U.C.

I hope this helps. As with ALL census extractions and transcriptions, I recommend you go the the ORIGINAL source to confirm these data.

I wish you well with your research. Please let me know if there's anything else I can offer.
