I had posted some info on the Asa Meech Genealogy Forum and then ran across this Forum on 'Meech of Meech Lake'
I was looking for info on Margaret Docksteader.I have Asa and Margaret's marriage record but couldn't establish which Margaret Docksteader he had married as I have more than one of them.I am related to the Docksteader side of the family.
The information on their marriage record is as follows:
Married this sixth day of November eighteen hundred and twenty two by license Asa Meech of Hull district of Montreal Minister (widower) and Margaret Docksteader of Argenteuil spinster by me Joseph Abbott Rector of St Andrews.
signed by: Asa Meech & M Docksteader
witnessed by:Mary Docksteader and Wm Teasdale
The copy is very poor but I compared it to other marriage entries by the same minister and made light and dark copies to piece it together.It was on LDS MicroFilm #1992904 St. Andrews 1821 - 1899.For the time period in question the church was called "Church of England in St. Andrew and the Seignory of Argenteuil"
If the infomation on date of birth of 1799 that you provided for Margaret is correct I can provide the information on her parents.
