Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
My subscription to ancestry has run out, which I forgot until I started to answer you, but it would be helpful if we knew what information you are looking for. It just saves time looking up details of what you already know. For example, are you looking for their marriage information, evidence on a passenge list? cause of death? or something else?
Hi Joan. It would appear the family was in Toronto. In the Group just click on the Ontario Genealogy Links & Resources, scroll down to Newspapers.You will see Toronto Star you can purchase a subscription, for an hour, day,etc. Was of great help to me in finding my family.
This would be my assumption for their family timeline:
1832 Christening - Whitechapel, Lancashire, England
1841 England census - Goosnargh with Newsham, Kirkham, Lancashire, England
1851 England census - Preston, Lancashire, England
1856 Immigration - 1901 census
abt 1838 Birth - Flamboro, Wentworth, Canada West
1851 Canada census - Ancaster, Wentworth, Canada West
John & Albertina
1860 Marriage - Wentworth County, Canada West
1861 Canada census - Clifton, Welland, Canada West
1871 Canada census - Woodstock, Oxford South, Ontario, Canada
1881 / 1891 Canada census - Port Stanley, Elgin East, Ontario, Canada
1901 Canada census - Woodstock, Oxford North, Ontario, Canada
I don’t know if you have this info but here is the certificate of death for Lily Mae Bond who is the daughter of John and Albertina. The informant was her sister.
I’ve also found the Certificate of death for Margaret Clarkson Blackwell. I’ve also found her obit both in the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail but the clearer one was from the Globe.
Donna, thanks so much. I did not have the obits so that is new info.
