Looking for family of George Ramsay of Seneca Twshp, Haldimand Co., Ontario Canada. He was born 1825-1827 in Ireland. His death certificat in Canada lists his father as Abraham and his mother looks like Ann Dancy. He died 20 Sept 1911 of old age, senility, etc. age 86. He had been a farmer.
His brother, William, in Seneca, has his own birth listed on his death certificate (1885) as 1829 in Monaghan, Ireland, so I am assuming George also comes from there. William died of diabetes at age 56. I am pretty sure this is his brother. He also was a farmer.
A census record has George as emigrating to Canada in 1841 (about). He was born in Ireland on all documents.
The spelling is usually Ramsay, though sometimes census have Ramsey.
I see one Dancy in Valuation records in Monaghan County. I will look that up.
I do not see anything for Abraham in Monaghan County.
George Ramsay married Mary Patterson. I do not know if this happened in Ireland or Canada. He emigrated, again, in 1841. The children I have on record were born between 1854-1870. Mary Patterson Ramsay died before 1881 census. Also a death record has a Mary E. Ramsay dying in Haldimand, Ontario, 1876 of a 9 year illness and being born in the United States. It gives no other family information. I found no copy of census. 1871 census is not posted on Ancestry.com in image or detail of family names.
The valuations have 35 Patterson families in Monaghan County but perhaps she is not from Ireland, at least recently.
