Re: McCurdy-Lewis Union
In Response To: Re: McCurdy-Lewis Union ()

Lisa,
You are incredible. Sorry I am just getting back to you. To be honest, I just didn't realize you had written back. (Don't ask why because I cannot tell you.) Thank you so much for all of this. I appreciate it so much.

You said I could ask so here it goes: Can you find Berry Lewis beyond 1881? I have tried and cannot. I cannot figure out why they just seemed to disappear.

Also, what do you know about the "NEW CANAAN" settlemen? My ancestors there were: Daniel Smith and wife plus 5 possibly 7 children. He was there in the 1850s (I think). I know he died in 1892. He was born in KY (I think). Thank you so much, Lisa. You're the best. Margaret

: Sorry for the long delay... was out of town over the weekend.

: ... Charles H. 8
: ... Nancy 6

: ALSO living with them, BUNDY, Adam, 9, b. CW (Canada West), black

: By 1881, Berry and Lucy were still living in Colchester with their
: kids, though there were additional children by then.
: ..................

: 1861 Ontario Census, Essex Co., Colchester, pg 38

: William and Mary McCurdy: Alice 22, Delipha 17, Joseph 15, and
: Georgia 13.

: Alvin was married by then, to a woman named Arty, and they lived
: nearby with their 5 children.

: Same goes for William (married, living nearby with his family).

: ..........
: It's somewhat surprising, however, that there are no Lewises or
: McCurdys listed in Essex County in the Ontario Cemetery Finding
: Aid. Not quite sure why ...

: I hope this helps. If I can provide any additional information, you
: have but to ask, my dear.

: Good luck.
