The Ontario Vital Statistics Project Marriage Records entry for my gr-grandparents John Rich and Emma Gear gives Emma's birthplace as England, 1852, and lists her parents as Isaac and Ramison, the marriage taking place in Woodstock, Ontario, Jan 13, 1875. Family records however give her birthdate as 1848. We have note of two other children in the family, gender, names, ages, etc., all unknown. Both spellings, Geer and Gear, seem to have been used. We know of Gear/Geer relatives in Norfolk County, Ontario, possibly a sister of Emma's married to Young, and of possibly a brother in Burgessville, (North Norwich Township) Ontario, both relatively nearby to the East Oxford area where John and Emma were a farm family. John and Emma were my grandmother's parents; there were three other children: Franklin, Susan and Andrew.
