who married Basil Sorenberger.

I understand that my great-great grandfather was named "Elijah
Eagle" and was born in 1855 in Owen Sound, Ontario. He died in 1949,

I know nothing more of her.
I have dug and dug, but can only find an Elijah Eagle in the Wellington
records - one who was born in 1850. I do not know if our family has
perhaps mis-recorded a few facts but would really like to find out where
this man was from to begin with.

I need help tracing Corlett history in Grey County because I have
very little information and I want to find my roots. My great-great
grandfather was JOHN CORLETT, born 1824 in Dumfriesshire Scotland. He
emigrated to County of Grey at some point and there he married his wife,
ELENOR (ELANOR?) CORLETT, and they had 12 children. My great
grandfather, their 3rd child, was THOMAS ALEXANDER CORLETT, born August
7, 1863, and graduated from Detroit College of Medicine in 1892. He
married Mary Stimpson in 1897, and had one child, DONALD A. CORLETT, SR.,
whose eldest son, Donald, is my dad.
I am hoping that some of this information rings a bell to a descendent of
one of those other 11 children so that we can build a virtual family tree

My grandfather's grandfather, James Vaughan was born about
1826 in Ireland and immigrated to Canada about 1850/51. In the 1851
census he is in Vaughan twp., York County. He then came to Glenelg twp.
I know that his wife's first name was Mary and that she died between
the 1871 and 1881 census but I have not been able to find her date of
death or her place of interment. I also have not been able to determine
where James is buried. (His sons Hugh and James are in Trinity Anglican
Cemetery in Glenelg.
I would like to find out Mary's maiden name, when James and Mary were
married (in Ireland), the county in Ireland from which they
came,Mary's date of death and their final resting place.
I would be most appreciative of any information that you can offer to
fill any of these missing pieces.

Hi, have sucessfully traced my tree in England. However 1881
Canadian cencus for Euphrasia, Grey East, Ontario shows that a Matthew
Symonds, wife Ann and 5 children were living there. All were born in
England except the last child, Lydia who at age 5 in 1881 was born in
Ontario. I have a Matthew Symonds same age etc who was missing for awhile
in England but reappears in 1890 aged 50 to marry my Gt Grandmother. Is
it the same man, did he leave or lose a family in Canada or is it just a
coincidence in names and birth dates? Any information on this family
would be appreciated, especially where he was born in England as this may
rule him out.
