Hell Kelly I recently discovered that my GGrandfather and his parents were in Mattawa , On. They are in the 1881 Canada Census as John and Mary Ann nee Riley Adams. They had 4 children at the time. including Mary Jane, John A, James H, and Ernest.
John A is my great grandfather. He immigrated to Cleveland Ohioin 1890 at the age of 12 where he spent his life as a taylor. I have no idea what became of the rest of his family, it is known one younger brother, William,went to Michigan. There might be some that went toHamilton, ON but that's only rumored What are the chances? How many Adams' could be from Mattawa?
