U/K

            CHILDREN

#1.1 * Sabrina born in US about 1803, married John Gregory in US  perhaps 1820 or so.  

#1.2 * Abram Dolson Jr. born 5 September 1804. Died September 1882 buried Woodstock Baptist Cemetery Born New York State (Ref #16)  

#1.3 * Margaret Ann (Peggy) Dolson born 1806 (1810 ref 1850 and 1860 Indiana Census) in New York State  

#1.4 * Edward Silas Dolson (not Edward J.) (born ? by 1815?) married Roxie J. Williams 16 February 1836, Naturalized 1841 so likely born in New York State (His son Silas Dolson when marrying for the second time in 1898 in Waterloo County On. gave his father's name as Isaac Edward Dolson.)  

a. It appears that Abram and his family were in Oxford County in 1825 or before.  

b. Whether Dau Peggy married 1826 or before to Cornelius Eglin in New York or Ontario is not known.  

c. The preamble of the Baptist Church Cemetery records (Printed by Oxford County OGS) suggests that the Dolsons were in Oxford by 1826 and maybe as soon as 1822.  

d. Abram purchased the North West 1/4 (50 acres) Lot 5 Concession 12 (East) Zorra Oxford County Ont for 50 pounds from Isaac Edwards described as a blacksmith on 4th July 1825 (the deed however was not registered in the County registry office for an other 10 years on 2 March 1836 As # 2901)  

e. None of the Dolsons or the Eglins are listed in the militia Records of 1828 (See Ref # ) Comment Odd seeing that many of the neighbours were as was Alanson Avery whose wife Nancy was a sister of Cornelius Eglin  

f.  Abram  was in Zorra and Naturalized in 1840.  He gave his occupation as a 'yeoman " but could not sign his name  

g. Abram Sr was not a UEL. However he was not found in the 1820 census of New York State so he may came before that time.  

h. land records indicate a patent to Abram Dolson (Sr/Jr?) dated 1835 of North 1/2 of Lot 8 Concession 13 East Zorra (no search done as yet)  

It seems likely that Abram and his wife moved to Porter County In about same time as his dau and son in law Cornelius Eglin did that is between 1843 and 1845 (Freda Weirick says Jesse Dolson moved to Porter County in 1843)  

i. There were many Dolsons in Orange County New York in the 1700's and were descendants of the Early Dutch Settlers.  

j. page 75 of "the Trail of the Black Walnut By G. Elmore Reaman pub 1957 states that the sons of Isaac Dolson of Butlers Rangers were

Isaac, Daniel, Gilbert, Matthew (also in Butlers Ranger's), Peter, Jacob and John (no Abram).

SABRINA DOLSON

            PARENTS

PRESUMED to be Abram Dolson and Peggy? tho perhaps Samuel Dolson and Millicent Edwards

            BORN

in US about 1803

            MARRIED

John Gregory in US  perhaps 1820 or so.

            DIED

            CHILDREN

likely more children), 

#1. Likely  Marilla Gregory who married John Osborn (both of Zorra) on 2 Dec 1849 Married by Rev Isaac Elliott , Baptist minister and Witnesses were John Williams and Nelson Edwards  

#2. likely Abraham W. Gregory born about 1822 US  

In the 1851 census an Abraham Gregory age 30 with wife Margaret age 33 (born about 1819) was living next door to John Gregory

(Thus it is presumed that Abraham was John's son)

Abraham married Margaret Doughty on 6 January 1850 (It appears her maiden name was Osborn) married by Rev Elliot, witnesses were Josiah Gregory and William Osburn.

In 1876 A.W. Gregory (presumably Abraham) was living on Lot 17 Concession 10 East Zorra (Ref #11) He died 7 January 1879 age 59 years 1 month and 10 days and is buried in Vandicar Cemetery (one might guess that Abraham's age was changed so that he did not appear younger than this wife)

  Margaret died 27 April 1903 age 84 years( G/S in Vandicar Cemetery reads Margaret Osborn wife of late A.W. Gregory)  

#3. likely Jonathon Gregory who was born 29 October 1824 and died 27 April 1862   (buried Vandicar Cemetery)

He was married by Rev Elliot on 8 July 1855 to Susan Rosbery (both of Zorra)wit Warren Gregory and Margaret Gregory)  

#4. Polly born about 1834 Gregory in Canada  

#5. John born about 1841 Gregory in Canada

1862 Oxford County Gazetteer gives John (altho this might have been short for Jonathon) as living on Lot 17 Concession 10 East Zorra  

a.  no Gregorys listed in the 1828 militia rolls of Oxford County. See References  

Altho positive proof has yet to be found to state that Sabrina Gregory was a daughter of Abram Dolson there are many similarities in the family names.

            CHILDREN

All children seem to be children of Abram's first wife  

#2.2.1 Elizabeth (Betsy) Jane Dolson born abt 1833

 married Henry Clark Hill

They were in or near New Buffalo Cass County, North Dakota in March 1882 (both signed their names on a deed in Elgin County Registry office, see after.

1871 census East Zorra Twp, Oxford County Division 2 page 69

Hill, Henry M. age 42 born US Free Choice Baptist Farmer, married

Betsy Jane age 38 Born Ontario German origin ie born c 1833 (therefore her mother's name is not known)

 Children

George Harrison Hill age 18 farmer, James (Alwor?) Hill 16, John Albert Hill 14, Mary Catherine Hill age 12, Eliza Jane Hill age 11, Wallace Henry Hill age 6

The 1876 Oxford County Atlas shows Henry Hill on West 1/2 Lot 8 Concession 13, East Zorra Twp, 100 acres, SW 1/4 Lot 9 Concession 13, 50 acres, NE 1/4 Lot 8 Concession 13, 50 acres, Total 200 acres.  

    .2 Sebrina Dolson married James Burdick  (just where she fits in family is not know as I have not yet checked a Census with them in it

1861 census next move)

They were living in Yankton County South Dakota March 1882 and were likely there in 1880 (both signed their names on a deed in the Elgin county Registry office) This family not found in 1871 Ontario Census index. 1871 East Zorra census Div 2 run thro as well no entries for Burdick  

    .3 Ann L. Dolson born about 1834/5 in the US (1851 Census)(married age 19 in 1851 Census)  age given as 36 born Ontario in 1871 East Zorra Census and married Thomas Burgess on 7 July 1852

  If however the notation in the 1851 census "born in US" is correct as Abram DOLSON was naturalized in 1831 and if Ann was his daughter then in all likelihood she would have been born in Canada. In 1871 census she said she was born in Ontario. She was declared a child of Abram in a deed see after.

 In 1871 East Zorra census she is list as age 36 with husband Thomas Burgess age 44 occupation farmer and children Miranda E born abt 1854, Betsy O. born abt 1856, Horace E born abt 1859, Josephine born abt 1866 and Abraham W born abt 1868.

In the 1876 Oxford County Atlas, T. Burgess is shown on the E 1/4 of Lot 7 Concession 12,  50 acres  

            In the 1881 census of East Zorra  Anna Burgess age 46 is listed as a widow  with children Josephine Burgess age 13 and Abraham W. Burgess age 12. Also living with Anna was her mother Eliza Dolson age 68 widow.

She was listed on Deeds (1882) in the Elgin County Registry office as Annie Burgess, widow  

    .4 Margaret Dolson born 1836 married Alexander Tree (1831-1914) living in Blandford Township in 1880 and March 1882 (? How come she does not show up in 1851 census, she would have been only 15 yet her sister Anna does show at age 19 and then again maybe she was not a sister of Ann's ?? )

            In the 1876 Oxford County Atlas A. Tree is shown as living on SE 1/4 of Lot 8 Concession 12 East Zorra 50 acres

Margaret died 1910 and both she and Alexander are buried in the Woodstock Baptist Cemetery.

 In the 1828 Militia were Alexander B. Tree age 19 and Stephen Tree age 21 

Abram Dolson was naturalized on 23 July 1831 in Zorra and gave his occupation as a "yeoman" He could not sign his name.

He was living on Lot 5 Concession 11 East Zorra (50 acres) at the time of the 1861 Zorra agricultural census. In the 1876 Oxford County atlas he is shown living on NE 1/4 Lot 8 Concession 12 East Zorra Twp 50 acres

 Abram Dolson patented Lot 13 Concession 1 North of Road in 1858 and Lot 17 Concession 18 West Center Road in 1860  both lots in the Twp of West Williams Middlesex County Ont.  

1861 East Zorra Census

Abram Dolson 56 born New York  farmer baptist

Elisa Dolson spinster Bapist born New York 48

(the spinster bit seem odd double check)  

1871 Census Abram Dolson age 66  Eliza M. age 58  born USA both Regular Baptist no occ given Division 2 page 8 East Zorra

 As he died in East Zorra it is likely he sold the properties to others (no land search done).

The above 4 children were described as Abrams lawful heirs and only children in a deed in the Elgin Cty Registry office re Lot 20 Concession 1 Bayham Twp. In the deed registered as #8251 (Bayham) 1880, it was stated that Abraham Dolson died intestate.

            In December 1875 Henry Hill purchased Lot 20 Concession 1 from Colin Munro, sheriff of Elgin County  (Seized property) 200 acres for $4500

            In Feb 1876 Hill sold the property for $5000 to William Goddard

(I would wonder if Hill had any intention of ever living on the property and had only purchased it to make a dollar)  2 mortgages by Goddard, one to Hill for $4000 and an other  Hill assigned his mortgage to Abram DOLSON in May 1876 and in Oct 1877. 

            Goddard assigned his interest in the property to DOLSON making him the owner still with a mortgage. Just when  Burdock went to Dakota is not known. Hill must have gone to Dakota between 1877 and 1880.

 Property values in Ontario plummeted and the sisters Jane Hill and Sabrina Burdock assigned their interests to Annie Burgess and Margaret Tree.       

Alex Tree defaulted on the other mortgage and at a auction sale (March 1882) he purchased the property for $ 2250 and shortly after sold it for $2200. (Ontario was in the severe depression in the late 1870's and early 1880's and the family were one of the victims!)

Abram Dolson Sr. and Margaret Ann (Peggy) ?

            BORN

1806 (Ref V. E.) or 1810 (age in 1850 and 1860 Porter County Indiana Census records)

            MARRIED

Cornelius Eglin likely before 1826 likely in Ontario

A source thro Les Dolson (Feb/97) states that she married secondly to James Haskell

            DIED

Margaret Dolson Eglin died in 1871 in Oregon  

            Cornelius Eglin was the son of John Eglin and Catherine Dods and was baptized 18 January 1801 at Rotterdam New York at (First or) Woestina Dutch Reform Church born 4 July 1800 (Church Records) 27 June 1801 as calculated  from his gravestone inscription

(I, RGM, suppose it is possible that the first Cornelius died and a second Cornelius was born a year later)  See also the Eglin Family history by RGM.

            He died 12 May 1862 Centre Township Porter County Indiana

and was buried in the Blachly Cemetery (east side) located 3 miles west of Valparaiso Ind, entrance off Old Lincoln Highway, State Route #330. Gravestone reads died May 12 1862 age 60 yrs 10 mos and 15 days

#3.3.1 John Eglin

 born 25 March 1827 or 2 Feb 1828 near Woodstock Oxford County 

He died Centre Twp Porter County 11 Jan 1903 (was blind for 48 years)

He married on 26 Feb 1846 to Catherine Mahala Edwards born 16 May 1829 near Woodstock Canada She was dau of Isaac Edwards.

 She died 4 November 1914 at Valparaiso In

(there was an Edwards Family in Zorra c 1828, not listed as property owners in 1857 Tremaine's in Zorra)

 1850 Porter County Census enumerated with John and Mahalia was Esther A. Eglin age 2.

1860 Porter county census John age 33, wife Mahiday age 31 both born Canada, children Esther Eglin age 12 and Franklin Eglin  age 7 both children born Indiana. John was a property owner but no occupation given (likely farmer) (see Thomas after)  

Betty Williams (Ref #28) advises that Newspaper obits for John and Catherine state only 3 children  2 sons  1 dau, John, Frank and Mrs Perry Peer, so what to Esther?, was she someone's child?, died young?, or get lost in history?  

4.3.1.1 John Eglin died infancy

Also in Porter County Records  (Ref #33)

#3.3.8 * James Monroe Eglin born 24 November 1845  (Ref V. E.) in Indiana likely Centre Township Porter County. Died 16 December Yakima Washington State married Francis Kern and had 7 children including a Jessie (female)

James and his descendants are detailed in the Eglin Family history by RGM  

To Date no references to Cornelius other than his baptism have been found in New York State.

It appears that Cornelius was in Oxford County by 1826 or before altho no record of his marriage has yet been found.

   Cornelius received a receipt dated September 1834 from the Commissioner of Crown Lands for payment of 7 1/2 Pounds as the first instalment for South 1/2 of Lot 6 Concession 12 East Zorra Township Oxford County. The total price of the 100 acre parcel was to be 75 pounds to be paid (plus interest at 6 % in 10 yearly installments with the first payment due in 17 September 1835   

 He transferred this property to John Bailley in ? (to be checked)

 He was in Zorra Township Oxford County Ontario on 2 March 1836 when he along with his brother Thomas and witnessed a memorial of sale of Land from Samuel Dolson to Jesse Dolson (Lot 5 Concession 11 East Zorra Township that occurred on 5 October 1835 (Registered as #2902 in the County of Oxford Land Registry office)

At the time both Cornelius and his brother were described as Mechanics and both signed their names.

            Cornelius also purchased Lot 25 Concession 11 East Zorra Township in January 1836, on similar terms to his purchase in Lot 6 with 15 pounds down and 10 years to pay.

  He transferred this property to Charles Thacher Tucker for an unstipulated amount in April 1836.

(Charles Tucker transferred it to John Rowell in January 1838)

He purchased property in East Zorra by Deed #4165 from Cyrus Dibble and sold by Deed # 4166 to A. (Abram) Dolson in the time frame 1850-2 (Land Registry to be checked) (the above are copy book numbers)

It was very likely that A. Dolson was Abram Dolson, his brother-in-law (RGM speculation).

 Cornelius was shown on the Naturalization Records (given British citizenship) in Oxford as having signed the affidavit of Allegiance on 17 March 1841. He gave his residence as East Oxford Township and his occupation as a carpenter and signed his own name. To be naturalized, one was supposed to be in Canada for seven years. (the methods for proving this seem to be somewhat obscure if any even existed)

Also naturalized in 1839-40-41 were Edward, Jesse and 2 Abraham Dolsons 

 Cornelius appears in Centre Township Porter County Indiana in the 1850 Census, age 48  and the census show that the youngest child, James Monroe Eglin (Born November 1845) was born in Indiana.

However Margaret age 7 in the 1850 census was born in Canada (Oxford County).

 Thus one assumes that Cornelius went to Indiana between 1843 and late 1845.  

 He is listed as a farmer in 1850 census of Porter County and as a miller, age 58, in the 1860 census of Porter County. By 1860 James was the only child still at home, tho daughter Margaret and husband William Ferguson lived next door.

 In 1860 census of Porter County Indiana, Margaret Dolson (presumably his mother-in law, age 79 is living with Cornelius Eglin.
