Hello Marilyn, Prior to Christmas I found your name posted as a submitter to the LDS site regarding Elizabeth Detlor & Angus Losee and I was going to write you snail mail.
I do not know if Angus fits into my family or not.I have traced back to Joseph Dorland Losee born abt. April 12, 1820 in Ernestown.According to the 1851 Ernestown Census, Joseph is listed as a butcher. Later census records give occupation as farmer.Joseph's orgin is German.
Where does Mary Dorland fit in?I would presume that Joseph's second name was perhaps that of a relative or neighbour. There is a widow in the 1851 census that might be Joseph's mother.She has a son living with her transcribed as, Derlin or Perlin Losee.In the 1871 Census there is a Dorland Losee (birth years match - likely same person and possible brother to Joseph).Also, I have collected some information pertaining to your line (thinking they might be tied in).We both have Losee's buried at St. John's Norway Cemetery.In total there are 9 Losee graves (six of these are my line).
According to the Toronto City Directory (pre 1920) -- Melburn Losee (s/o Angus & Elizabeth)is listed as a "Horse Dealer".My grandmother (a Losee) married into the Williamson family who were "Horse Dealers" dating back to 1850 or earlier in Scotland, thus, bringing their trade to Ontario.Could they have known one another???
Furthermore, I have some information on a Mary Detlor who I believe to be the sister of Elizabeth.
Would love to hear from you.You can write to me off line at:firstname.lastname@example.org
