UPDATE: July 12, 2016 – A visitor to this blog shared additional information about the Wellman family.  There are two additional children I did not know about. There is a transcript to the Wellman bible with additional information that has errors. There is additional information about this family, I will only add some of it to the information below.  If interested leave a comment.  This will change the order of the children

  1.  Philip Brown Wellman, died young.  (NEW)

2.  Zora Wellman born about 1875 in Ontario. She married a Gilbert McMullen on 25 October 1889 in Hastings.  This means that Zora died before 1911 per the above census.

Zora Z. Wellman, age 25, born about 1874 in Rawdon, married on 25, Oct. 1899 in Hastings. Father Barton Wellman, mother Alice Brown. Spouse Gilbert McMullen, age 38, born about 1861 in Rawdon. Father Andrew McMullen and mother Catherine Wescott.  Source Ontario Canada Marriages 1801 to 1928

Update:  July 12, 2016 – Zora was in the Rockwell Hospital in Kingston, Ontario in the 1911 census and eventually recovered. In the 1911 Canadian census her children are living with her parents and brother in Rawdon Twp.  Her final fate is still unknown.

3.  Edward Barton Wellman born about 1876/8 and died 14 December, 1912 in Rawdon, Hastings Co., Ontario. He married a Katie Myrtle Eleanor Gifford on 26 June, 1912 in Hastings Co.  She was the daughter of Samuel Sterling Gifford and Precella Lidster.  Source was Ontario, Canada, Marriages 1801-1928

Update: July 12, 2016 – Sadly Edward/Edmond tried to shoot his wife Katie and then shot himself.  Katie survived and remarried to a Myron Seymore.

4. Margaret Wellman born 1880. She may have married on 12 August 1884 but no name of spouse was given for it was only and index.  There are many references to a Margaret in the census for 1911 but not knowing her married name will take a bit of work to figure out what happened to her. Update: July 12, 2016 the name of her husband is Carl Wheeler Nixon.

5. Ethel Alvina Wellman – died young. (NEW)

6.  David Wellman about 1887.  The David listed in the 1911 Canadian census above might be a son of Barton and Alice Wellman appearing next door to them.  Update: July 12, 2016 – David married Jennie Gifford, sister to Katie see #3.

Once again, more research needs to be done on this family and the children.  A thorough census study, marriage, and burial records needs to be done to piece it all together.  It is time to move on to other family members.

Thanks to the visitor for sharing these updates.

Philip Brown and Margaret McMurray of Hastings County and their descendants

Thomas Brown (1817 to 1848) was the brother of Philip Brown (1817 to 1895).  They both settled in Hastings County and Rawdon Twp. and remained there till their deaths.

Philip Brown was born, according to cousins, on 29 March 1817 in County Longford, Ireland.  He died 7 April 1895 in Rawdon Twp., Hastings County, Ontario. He is buried in the Stirling Cemetery in Stirling, Hastings Co., Ontario there is a tombstone for him at Find A Grave. Philip’s name is spelled with one “l” and sometimes two.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GScid=2335486&GRid=141273758&

I refer you to my post dated August 27, 2014, The Children of William Brown and Elsie: Philip Brown.  In that post I wrote about Philip’s land in Hastings County along with other Brown family. I also talk about Margaret McMurray’s parents.

Here is a review of Philip and Margaret McMurray Brown.  It is interesting that this “McMurray” is Irish.  On the other side of my family the McMurray’s are considered Scottish.

Philip married Margaret McMurray about 1840. After a careful search of the records of the Anglican Diocese of Ontario in Kingston, I was unable to find a marriage record.

Mary was born about 1819 in County Longford, Ireland and died 10 February 1878 in Rawdon Twp., Hastings County, Ontario.  She is also buried in the Stirling Cemetery based on the cemetery book for Stirling Cemetery.  When I visited in September of 2014, I did not find a stone for her so I have created a Memorial at Find A Grave for her and linked her to Philip.

Here is a study of the Canadian Census for Philip and Margaret Brown:

1851 – There is no census for Rawdon in 1851, it does cover a few areas of Hastings.

1871 Canadian Census, Philip Brown Family, Rawdon, Hastings Co., Ontario, District 62, No. 2, Div. pg. 19.  It is interesting to see that the place of birth is Ireland for all of them in this census.  In the 1861 census the children are listed born in Canada.

We see that Phillip is now widowed and his son Henry (Thomas Henry) is living with him. The older children are out of the house.

Philip's Death Announcement

Philip’s Death Announcement

Death of Philip Brown Obituary (probably the local paper)

On Sunday evening last Philip brown, one of the oldest residents of the township of Rawdon, came to his death under peculiar circumstances. About dusk on that evening a neighbor, Mr. Wright, called to see him at his house, where he was living alone, and on opening the door found the room full of smoke. He called to Mr. Brown, and getting no reply, groped his way to the bedroom where he found Mr. Brown lying on the bed, partly dressed, and in an unconscious condition.  Mr. Wright took him in his arms and carried him out, and calling other near neighbors to take care of Mr. Brown, he with others soon extinguished the fire. Mr. Brown, however, did not rally, and expired about ten minutes after being taken from the building. The cause of the fire is a mystery. The deceased was over 78 years of age. The funeral took place on Wednesday, and was largely attended, service being held in St. John’s Church, Stirling. 

Philip and Margaret had ten (10) children:

1.  William Brown was born 3 April, 1841 in Rawdon Twp., and was baptized at the Saint Thomas Anglican Church in Belleville on 2 October,1841. He died in Hastings Co., on 14 November 1822 and he is buried in Stirling Cemetery. He was baptised on 2 October, 19841 at the St. Thomas Anglican Church in Belleville.

He married Emily Reid on 1 December, 1868 in Rawdon Twp.. She was born 5 October, 1850 in Rawdon to Elijah Reid and Isabella. She died on 23 April 1850 in Rawdon and is buried in Stirling Cemetery.  They had nine children.

2. Frances Brown was born 9 January 1843 in Rawdon Twp. and she died 2 August 1933 in Northumberland, Ontario. She married a James Clements son of Thomas Clements (1803 to 1891) and Christina King (11 June 1805, Northern Ireland) and died 30 September 1901, Rawdon District. Frances and James had three children.

3. Alice Maria Brown  was born about 1845 in Rawdon Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario.  She married Gilbert Barton Wellman of Bonar Law, Hastings Co., Ontario who died 4 January 1936 in Hastings Co. They had about 4 children.  She died 22 November 1921 and is buried in the Twelfth Line Cemetery in Hastings County.

4. Elizabeth Brown was born 26 January, 1845 in Rawdon, was baptized 3 February 1846 was baptized on April 28, 1861 at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Belleville.  She died 20 Nov. 1921 in Hastings Co., She probably died in Manitoba. She married a William Cook of Rawdon and they had 4 six children.  NOTE:  These changes to her information moves Elizabeth from position four in the children list to the last child of Philip and Margaret, thus moving the others up. 

5. Thomas Henry Brown was born 27 December 1846 in Rawdon District and was baptized on 28 January 1847 at the St. Thomas Anglican Church in Belleville. He died 15 September 1884 in Rawdon Twp. and is buried in the Stirling Cemetery. He married Esther Ann Downey who was born about 1856 in Ontario and died in the Rawdon District. Thomas and Esther had at least three children.

6. Diana Brown was born about 1850 in Rawdon Twp., and died 11 February 1902 in Oxford, Ontario. She married a Richard West on 2 April, 1877 in Hastings. RIchard West was born about 1850 in Hungerford to John West and Hannah.

7. Matilda Jane Brown was born 1 April 1851 in Stirling and was baptized 6 August 1852. She died 10 November 1936 in Sparta, Elgin County, Ontario.  She married James Downy on 9 April 1873 in Stirling from Huntingdon Twp.

8. Margaret Brown was born 6 November 1854 in Rawdon Twp. and died in Kingston, Frontenac, Ontario.

9. Alvina Brown was born about 1855 in Rawdon Twp. and died in 1943 in Toronto, York Co., Ontario. She married a James Wallace Woodrow on 3 December, 1879 in Rawdon, Hastings Co., Ontario. He was born 17 May 1854 in Athol Twp., Prince Edward Island County, Ontario. He died 30 September 1915 in Picton, Ontario. They had 3 children. He was the son of John Woodrow Jr. (1826-1900) and Adelaide Williams (1831-1878).

10. Harriett Brown was born 1860 Rawdon Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario.

In the next posts I will dig a little deeper into the lives of the children of Philip and Margaret Brown.

Thomas and Mary Brown’s Children: Henry Brown 1841- before 1920

Henry Brown was born 6 November 1841 in Belleville, Hastings Co., Ontario a son of Thomas and Mary Johnston Brown.

Henry married Catherine Mary Clark about 1863. I have not been able to locate a marriage for them in the records for the area.

Catherine was born 25 May 1839 in England. She immigrated from England about 1845 per the census.  It looks like her mother Anne was living  next to them in 1871 as a widow.

Henry and Catherine had the following children, see the census listed below for more details of this family.

  1. Emma P. Brown born about 1864 in Rawdon. She married a Bryon O. Lett born about 1855 in Sidney, probably the township in Hastings?  His parents were Andrew Lett and Sarah M. Baker.

3. Francis Brown born about 1869.  She is in the 1871 census but missing in 1881.

4. Mary Matilda Brown born about 1870.  She married an Angus Carmichael on 24 Nov. 1891 in Rawdon, Hastings Co., Ontario per index only.  So the Maud Carmichael in the 1911 census is probably her child.  I cannot get a fix on them in the census but I have found an Angus and Mary Matilda Brown Carmichael buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Belmont, Peterborough Co., Ontario.  No tombstone is online at this time to verify.

5.  Emily Brown born 1870.  She is 1-year-old in the 1871 census but by the 1881 she is 16 years old.

6. Edith Brown born 1 April, 1871 married John Gay. They settled in Campbellford, Northumberland, Ontario.  See census information below for more information.

7. William Chapman Brown born 23 May 1874 in Ontario. He became a physician and is listed on his father and mother’s death certificates as their physician and on his mother’s as the informant.

He married Whilellmina Matheson in Toronto on 6 May 1908.

In 1911 she was with her parents in Rawdon. She had her son Lorne with her. Later in the 1921 census she was with James and they had migrated to Essex, Essex Co., Ontario.  They had the following children: Sterling (1915) and Grant (1920). See census below for more detail.  It looks like they are buried in the Greenhill Cemetery in Essex but no tombstone has been posted for James, Maud and their son Stirling at this time.

10. Lulu Brown born 12 May 1881 in Ontario. She was a nurse. Lulu was living with her mother in 1921.

Let’s take a further look at Henry and Catherine in the census:

Henry Brown appears in the 1861 Canadian Census with his mother Mary and step-father Thomas Vance.  He is also with his other siblings both Brown and Vance. He is listed as being 19 years old.  See the preceding post for details of this census.

Henry is living in Rawdon Twp., Hastings County in the 1871 Canadian Census:

It looks like Maud Brown Gay returned home with her son Lorne.  She did marry a James Robert Gay on 21 August 1907 in Belleville – see above.

Her sister Edith also married a John Gay, who is the brother of James. See the above marriage information.

Edith and John Gay are in the 1901 Canadian census with two children:

There is more to do on this family of Henry and Catherine Brown such as follow the children out on the census, obtain further information about the cemeteries and make sure these are the correct children especially for the ones that do not have enough information and only appear in the census.  I think this is a good start.
