I am asking for help in trying to figure out the parents of my 3x great grandfather Benjamin Dixon b. 1842 in Cootehill Co. Cavan. I have found this information from birth certificates of his children and his death certificate in Middlesex County, Ontario Canada.He married Frances Lawson of London Ontario but I have not been able to locate a marriage certificate. I know of children from 1870 so would assume marriage 1868 - 1870.
From a birth certificate of a son - it states that Benjamin Dixon was born in Cootehill Co. Cavan Ireland on Aug. 26, 1842. From Benjamin's death certificate it states that his father's name was James Dixon. There was a blank for his mother's name.
I have some information from the time he arrived in Canada (1863), but I would love to find his mother's name and if he had any siblings.
