Comments:looking for knowledge of Moses Mifflin Sr. Born May 1874,wife Elizabeth born Oct 1882,4 sons,one being Moses B. Mifflin born April 1903.Also one daughter Ida,a brother Solomon B. BORN NOV 1885 and his mother Orilla M. Mifflin born Aug. 1847. All where listed as living in the same household on the 1911 Canada Census.
I believe that Moses B. Mifflin is my grandfather, the father of my father Oliver Russell Mifflin born in Merlin 1914 died in Simcoe Nov 11, 1957.
I am trying to connect all the dots as I do not remember any of my dads family as I was only 8years old and have had no contact since.
Yours truly

Comments: I found the information helpful, I'm looking for a cnnection between Native people and the Dolsn/Dolson family.
Chief Leroy Dolson and family live on the Muncy reservation near LOndon Ontario, but I have difficulty getting any kind of communicaion with Native people.
I Don't blame them, they received so much deception from white people over the years, but any knowledge you could share would be appreciated. Brett Dolsen in Australia is particularly nterest. Thanks, Don.

researching Kent area surnames:: Hearns, Hurns, Harns,Herns
Comments:My line spells the surname Herns; however Ebenezer s/o Thomas and Hannah Anderson or Huffman was using the Hurns spelling at some point in time during his Kent Co. stay in Kent Co. Ebenezer is buried in Craford Cemetery as HURNS, one of his wives in Maple Leaf another. Ebenezer had a son Thomas, born circa 1854 who married Lillie Ballard of Dover Twp. Lillie is listed later census as widow and she died in 1927 and buried in Dover Twp. cemetery. I think Ebenezer may have abandoned Lillie shortly after marriage by coming into US, possibly Missouri as a son Thomas Ebenezer Hurns is in h/h of Aunt Alice Campbell at 1900 Detroit Michigan census. This Thomas Ebenezer Hurns died in 1989 and his Social Security (SS Form5)Card Application form list his parents as Thomas Hurns and Rosa Rauh. Anyone in Kent Co. familiar with this Hurns/Hearns family?

researching Kent area surnames:: Thomas
Comments:Wilson Jesse Thomas is my great grandfather. He was born on September 29, 1875. The only thing we know about him comes from his homestead papers and stories. He was married in 1909 in Saskatchewan. I cannot find a birth record in the Ontario Archives for him. His homestead record states and that he was born in Ontario and that he came from Chatham.
The tragedy about him is that he worked hard on his farm and also as for the CPR. According to family tradition he was killed on the job in a railcar accident at Wynyard, Sask, leaving a pregnant wife and two children around 1914. His wife remarried and the children lost all memory of their birth father.
I inquired with CPR, who passed me on to Library and Archives Canada for any accident information but they could not find anything.
I am attempting to find out who his parents were and if there are any relatives left.

Comments:I would like to have contact with anyone who is related to or has knowledge of James A. Park, who was a teacher and principal, we believe in the black free school in Kent, Bothwell and Chatham parts of Ontario, Canada...His wife is Sarah Jane Kane Park...both being from from Armagh, Ireland earlier and emigrating with their children...to Nova Scotia and then the Ontario area of Canada...One of their sons changed his name to Victor Lauriston after writing a book, Romantic Kent which is supposed to contain biographical passages about James Park...one of his sons, William John Park married a Mills who emigrated with her mother from Scotland...We don't know if Mary Jane's father was deceased when they emigrated...Sarah Kane Park died of a fever along with several of the children and is buried in Maple Leaf Cemetery...she apparently lived on the farm with some of the children that they had and James married her nurse, a French-Canadian girl according to family and moved with William and his wife and some of the other family to Kingman, Kansas...Anyone who can confirm, is related, or can give me more information, would be thrilled to hear from them...

Comments:Timothy Desmond was born in Canada, married in 1792 at Detroit, MI. Guess his birth date as 1770? Wife is listed as Barberry in oath of affidavit of marriage at Camden in 1806. Five children listed then. He had Crown Land in Howard. 300 acres. His first son William James, had a son William W., who had a son William Henry, who only had three girls! My mother was the first girl.

William James Desmond moved family to Harsen's Island, MI in 1850. His wife's name was Testamiar Brundage. Believe that Timothy (1770) is buried on the Island, unmarked grave.

Hope someone else has information on Timothy Desmond's(1770) parents names and birthplace.

May we all find our ancestors, soon!

Comments:My PILON and BOURDEAU ancestors came from Kent Co.Ontario.
I find Raleigh as the place they came from. I know they
came to Minnesota.Don't know the date yet. They had
children Frederick Wilfred and Mary Adelia PILON married in
a double ceremony in Monroe Co. Wisconsin. That year was
1900.
I would love to swap info with anyone who can help me
trace my ancestors.

researching Kent area surnames:: Mckerral
Comments:Looking for McKerral's far and wide on this our Mother
Earth.
It's a fairly new quest, and have found McKerral's in USA,
Scotland, Ireland.
Sure would like some Help!
McKerral is my fathers surname, Kerwin was his mothers
maiden name (not sure if Kerwin is the correct spelling).
Would love to hear from anyone also looking and as curious
as I am.
