Hi Darlene, some of the pieces are a perfect match here. Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire, England is a location for the Eales family for at least two genrerations prior to emigration to Canada. Aurora was a stopping spot, long enough for Jim Mollard to catch up with the family at the Canada/US border in Lewiston, NY and marry Fanny Eales. (On the family's way to Rochester?) A witness on the marriage certificate was Ellen Eales so I suspect she was a sister, or maybe a cousin if two or more brothers and their families had emigrated at the same time -- namely 1842 as is written in our family bible.The Alfred Eales you mention is probably the Alfred Eales buried in Bugbrooke with an inscription to the effect that he had been the sexton of the church for many years.My cousin Dave visited there several years ago and saw some family headstones.The vicar also mentioned to Eleanor Eales about an American man who had made enquiry in the past. Long before Dave so we knew there were still Eales in the US.
It was not uncommon for two or more siblings to emigrate together. Jim Mollard came with four brothers.So the trick is sorting out who belongs to what line.
I emailed you a gen report on the Eales going back a couple of centuries in England. I obtained this information from Eleanor Eales Twist whom I met online a couple of years ago.Then I hit a wall with no answers to various questions posted here and there.
