Marvellous!!It looks like a great website!Thank you very much!I've quickly glanced through it and I can see there are lots of good things on it.However when you say that Catherine and John Burnham were heirs of Capt. John Dochstader of the Grand River, I believe that you say John Burnham is the son of Catherine and Lyman Burnham.In Catherine and Lyman's land petition that is on Microfilm #C1634 Catherine states that John Burnham is not her son but the son of her sister, Mary.Mary also married a Burnham, probably Chauncey, the brother of Lyman.I believe but have no proof that Chauncey was also the first husband of Catherine.
Thanks again for the website! Janette Burnham Lozon
I'm not too sure where the Henry of the letters fits in either.I think he is the Henry of Caistor Twp., Lincoln Co., Upper Canada, the son of Capt. John Dochstader's brother, Henry.But I'm not positive.
