Re: 1861 Census Lookup: Attwood/Attword Family


With pleasure. Here's what I found:

1861 CAN Census (ON, Kent County, Town of Chatham, sh 75)
ATTWOOD, Alex 32, b. USA, storekeeper, Wesleyan Meth, mu
ATTWOOD, Percella 25, b. USA, same religion, mu
ATTWOOD, Serapin 12, b. USA, same religion, bl
ATTWOOD, Julius 24, b. USA, same religion, bl

1861 CAN Census (ON, Kent County, Towhship of Chatham and Gore, sh 44)
ATWOOD, Nancy 18, b. USA, servant, no relibion, bl
ATWOOD, Delila 20, b. USA, servant, Episc Meth, bl
They were living with the following family:

OVERSTREET, Clayborn 51, b. USA, farmer, no religion, bl
OVERSTREET, James 5, b. UC (Upper Canada, now known as Ontario)
OVERSTREET, Amanda A. 3, b. UC
OVERSTREET, Edward 1, b. UC

Looking on (the Canadian version of, I found the following (you probably already have these):

- Lara Overstreet b. 10 Oct 1869, female, Kent County, father Cayborn Overstreet, mother Lucy Atwood

- Georgie Lile Overstreet, b. 18 Sep 1896, female, Kent County, father George Overstreet, mother Effie Duncan

- Baby Overstreet, b. 12 Jul 1903, male, Kent County, no father listed, mother Eliza Overstreet

Images available. If you want me to download one or more and email to you, lemme know);

2) There are also seven Overstreet marriages in Kent County between 1893 and 1921 ... images also available

3) Also five Overstreet deaths in Ken County between 1898 and 1924. Most notably, Lucy Overstreet, who died in 1898, 60 years old, b. Cincinnati, death record no. 011389. Images of these also available.

I'm sure a search of ATWOOD/ATTWOOD would reveal similar results.

Lemme know if any of this helps. Good luck in your search.
