I am searching for information about my ggg-grandfather David McCauley/McAuley/McAulay.According to a 1870 US census, he was born in Canada in 1830.His son's death certificate says that he was born on PEI, Canada.David was married to Sarah E. Sellars (dau. of William and Elizabeth Sellers -- William was from Kingston, ON) who was born about 1835.David and Sarah had 10 children, some of which may have been born before they came to the US: John A., Laurie, Henry, George, David M., Elizabeth, Nell, Sadie, Jane, and Minnie.The family movedto Toledo, Ohio where we believe that David died.Sarah E. died in Cuyahoga Co., Cleveland, Ohio in the early 1900's.We have also found that several of the childer lived and died in Cuyahoga Co.
Of the ten children we know:
John A. married Anna Conlisk. Children: Milo J., Marion J., John A., Jr., Sarah, Anna. **We believe that Anna Conlisk was born in Monroe, MI. Milo served in the Ohio National Guard and worked on the reailroad as well as working for his father's tent and awning factory.
Jane married a Farr.
Sadie married a Saeltzer.
Other clues about this family is that David and his sons were sailmakers that worked for McCauley and Sellers as well as Wilcox Brothers Cordage between 1870 and 1880 in Toledo.We also have reason to believe that David has something to do with the Clinton Hotel in Toledo.
We would like to find information on the McCauley family as well as find decendants of David and Sarah Sellars McCauley.
