George and Esther King Brown’s Children: Elizabeth Brown

Elizabeth Brown was born 22 February, 1841 in Hastings Co., Ontario to George and Esther King Brown in Hastings County, Ontario.

She married first to a James Duncan born about 1839 in Upper Canada.  They had at least one child: Matilda A. Duncan born about 1860.  Matilda later married to a James Oak who was born about 1861.

Elizabeth remarried about 1865 to Thomas Little Clement son of Charles and Martha Little Clement and brother to William Charles Clement (1838-1911) who would marry a sister of Elizabeth’s.  Thomas was born December 1842 in Ontario.

Thomas and Eliza appear in the 1871 Canadian Census in Petrolia.

They migrated to Carradoc, Middlesex County, Ontario probably because that is where Thomas’ parents were living in 1881.

According to some information on a future census it looks like the family left Canada and headed for Michigan about 1885.

Elizabeth Died on 10 September 1893 in Burnside, LaPeer Co., Michigan.

Thomas and Eliza had the following children:

  1. Charles Clement born about 1866 in Ontario, died 1947. He is buried in the Richland Cemetery and there is an Adeline McNary connected to him as his wife on Find A Grave. He is said to have served in the 20th U.S. Infantry Co. H.

Charles married Addia on 11 June, 1891 in Michigan:

2.  Martha Clement was born about 1869 in Ontario and may have married a Mr. Wilson. The grandson listed above in the 1894 and 1900 census as Jay C. Wilson or Clement J. Wilson is probably her child.  This might imply that Martha had died before 1894.

3.  Elizabeth Clement was born about 1871 in Ontario. She might have been known as Eliza.

4.  Jane Clement was born about 1874 in Ontario. She died 15 November, 1930 in McBain, Missaukee, Michigan. She was married to a Mr. McLaughlin.  She was born about 1874 in Canada and was 56 years old at death.  She was a housewife. Father was Thomas Clement and mother was Eliza Brown. FHL#96403, Michigan Deaths and Burials 1867-1995.

There is a possible marriage to a Thos. McLaughlin born about 1854 in Canada to a Lila Clement age 25 born in Canada.  The marriage took place on 30, September, 1896 in Saginaw, Michigan.  He was 42 years old and living in Brown City.  His father was Wm. and his mother was Mary J. McDonald.  Lila’s father was Thos and her mother was Jane Brown. Record #6138, film 58, 1896-Muskegon-1897,  Michigan Marriage Records, 1867-1952.

5.  George Clement born about 1876 in Ontario. He is living with his father in the 1894 Michigan State Census, see above.

After much searching in online sources for both Michigan and Ontario, I have decided that I have done the best I can for this family of Eliza’s.  There is definitely more to do on this family and it will require a lot of digging.  Several of them are found in Missaukee County, Michigan, so that might be a location for research.  I am not up on Michigan research although I have done some regarding my Goss family but that was in the lower counties of the state and of course I did go to Lapeer and do research there concentrating on George and Esther while I was there.  I am finding it very difficult to trace a family from Canada to the U.S. and keep things straight, so again, please double-check the above.

There is a Family Tree at Ancestry that is public about the Charles Clement and Martha Little family by the title Shepherd Family Tree, it is not bad and has some sources.  It suggests that Charles was born in Devon Co., England.  This tree might be helpful to Clement researchers.

John Percy Clement (1880-1975) a descendant of John’s sister Matilda Brown Clement, visited his Uncle John and Aunt Lydia (Holling), probably in 1908. He wrote the following about them, per cousin B. Hayes.

My Uncle John, mother’s brother and Aunt Lydia from Manitoba had settled near Albany, Oregon, so I decided to pay them a visit. Early in February I went by train down there and spent a week with them. They were very religious and belonged to the Seventh Day Adventists. They kept Saturday to the Sabbath and believed that Jesus would return to Earth during their life time. A married son lived with Uncle John and Aunt Lydia and they were all strict vegetarians and drank neither tea nor coffee, Not being used to their diet I found it very trying and although I enjoyed the visit I was glad to take [the] train back to Portland about a hundred miles distant. The first thing I did after stepping off the train was to go to a restaurant and order a large juicy steak with all of the trimmings. and lots of coffee. I also got my pipe out and thoroughly enjoyed a smoke which I had not indulged in for a week. I think that I never enjoyed myself to such an extant as I did during that first week in Portland.

John Brown died the 18th of December, 1912 and is buried in the I.O.O.F Cemetery in Eugene. It is now called the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery in Eugene, Lane Co., Oregon. Find A Grave has a memorial for both him and Lydia but no tombstone photo.

UPDATE 11/13/2015:  John Brown’s Obituary notice appeared in the local paper:

Died: John Brown, 12/18/1912 Eugene Daily Guard Newspaper

At the home of his son on the river road, seven miles north of Eugene, December 18, 1912, at 2:30 a.m. John Brown, aged 74 years, two months and three days. He was born in Canada and came to Oregon a number of years ago, settling at Albany, and arriving in Eugene about two years ago, living since then with his son on the river road. No arrangements for the funeral have yet been made.

John and Lydia had the following children:

  1. William John Brown was born 2 June, 1863 in Ontario. As we have seen William lives with his family and also makes the migrations to Manitoba and then to Oregon.

William’s marriage has been puzzling.  There are several possibilities at the Manitoba Vital Records online search:  1.  Henneker, Mary Maud, 11/10/1893 in Blanchard, Manitoba and then a 2. Mary Ellen Alcock, 10/29/1895 in Gladstone, Manitoba.  In the 1910 U.S. Federal Census William John states he has been married twice and has been married to Nellie E. 12 years which means the marriage was about 1898?  Since these are index only more would need to be done to determine if any of these are correct or not.  The problem is as we go through the years and the census, the name of his wife changes from Mary E. to Nellie E.

In the 1901 Canadian Census he is with the family in Winnipeg on Line 25, 84, 84, Brown, William, J., M, Head, M, June 2, 1863, 37, Ont., Irish, farmer. Brown, Mary E, F, Wife, M, April 18, 1876 24, Man., Irish.

In the 1910 U.S. Federal Census he is with his brother George and aging parents John and Lydia living in Fairmont, Benton Co., Oregon.

About 24 February, 1921 it is mentioned that William John Brown took the oath of Allegiance in the circuit court, a native of Canada. Morning Register Newspaper, Eugene, Oregon.  Seeking out naturalization records would be very interesting for this family.

William John Brown continues living in Oregon after his father’s death in 1912 and we find him living in Lone Pine Precinct in Lane Co., Oregon in 1920.

It is unfortunate, but several years ago I was in the Eugene, Oregon area for a genealogical conference and could have done some looking around for this part of my family.  It looks like out of the 5 children only 3 survived.  Catherine is still in question.  More of course, needs to be done on this family and other sources consulted like immigration, obituaries, and probates. It is time to move on to other siblings.

George and Esther King Brown’s children: Margaret Ann Brown Lamotte 1837 to 1879 and family…

I have tried to find Francois or Frank Lamott/Lamotte in the Canadian Census and the U.S. Federal Census, after the death of his wife Margaret, but I have not been successful.

However, there is a marriage of a Francis Lamotte male born about 1838 in Ambertsburgh, Ontario. He married on 16 February, 1880 in Port Huron, St. Clair, Michigan age 42 residence Petrolia, Ontario. The spouse is Emma Reynolds age 36 born in Brighton, Ontario. residing in Petrolia, #242, 20 1880 Marquette – 1881 Berrien.  Could this be him?

Francois or Frank and Margaret may have had eleven children.  I have attempted to find information about as many of the children as possible but it has not been easy. so please use the following with care.  Because there is only one census of 1871 showing the Francois Lamotte Family it is making it hard to determine the actual names and number of children born to the couple after 1871.

In 1901 there is a Horace T. Lamotte age 25 born 25 April 1875 in Ontario, French, Methodist occupation sand buffer living in Middlesex in London. His wife is Annie and a child names Lenord E.  This is a strong possibility that it is Horace because George Lamotte is living in Strathroy at the same time.

10.  Mina Lamott b. about 1877 in Ontario.

11. Emma Lamott b. about 1879 in Ontario.

This family of Francois Lamotte/LaMotte/Lamothe has been very difficult to find and follow.  I was hoping to find the father Francois/Frank in the census with his children living with him but it might mean a 73 page slog page by page through the Petrolia part of the census.  I have been able to find some information on the children of Margaret and Francois Lamotte but have had trouble seeking them in the census, so be careful and make sure you double-check me,

I am still wondering about Erastus and Ross Albert Lamotte?  It is possible that several of the child died young but I was unable to locate death records. This would make the count of children born 12 if these are two separate children.  At this point obituary notices for some of the children might reveal what happened to them and their father.  A cousin believes Francis died in the US and that might be possible.

More research needs to be done on this whole family and hopefully the above gives more clues, but it is time to move on.

George and Esther King Brown’s Children: Jeremiah Brown and Elizabeth Steadman

Jeremiah Brown was born on 15 May, 1836 in Upper Canada to George and Esther King Brown. He was christened on the 31st of July 1836.

Source:  Anglican Diocese of Ontario, Kingston, Ontario, 2-A-1 Ameliasburgh, Brown, Baptized: Jeremiah son of George Brown of the Township of Simy & of Esther his wife, born 15th of May Inst. was publicikly baptized this day 31st July 1836, John Grier___________, Geo. Brown and Mrs. J. Brown Sponsors.

This places George and Esther Brown in Prince Edward County in 1836. I have suspected that they had been living there.

Ameliasburgh is a historic township in southern Ontario, Canada, one of the three original townships that formed Prince Edward County. The other two townships were Marysburgh and Sophiasburgh. Wikipedia  

Jeremiah married Elizabeth Steadman about 1868 based on the birth of his first child George. She was born 3 May, 1844 in Ontario to Robert Steadman and Mary Ann Oliver. Robert was born about 1801 in Wexford Co., Ireland and Mary was from Devonshire, England.

As you can see some of the family members fates have not been determined.  I did a little research but it is difficult when you don’t have enough information.

There is a family tree at Ancestry.com/ca titled the Cunninghams of Sudbury  Ontario.  It is a family tree that helped me to connect my line to this Brown Family, the George and Esther Brown family line. There are more photographs of the family, documents and sources, I suggest you check it out.  I have only shared some of the information that is on the family tree.  There is more that could be done but it is time to move on.
