Hi Janice,Thanks for the contact.I have no concrete proof for children Thomas and Susannah.I always assumed they died as infants.I do have in my notes that James and Mary MAY have had a daughter Mary. You have a death date for her of Feb. 13, 1856.I am wondering if Susannah and Mary Jane could be one and the same?
I have a picture of two tombstones at the Little Britain Cemetery, one beside Mary/Thomas Spears' stone saying James Metherell d: Feb. 13, 1856.On the back side of Mary/Thomas Spear's tombstone it has James Metherell death date: September 27, 1857, aged 33 years as well as George A. Metherell death date: December 6, 1904 aged 40 or 46 yrs. (can't really read it from my pics.
I also have the 1901 Census for George Arscott, so I don't need that, thanks.On the 1911 Census I found daughterMary Metherell and her husband.Your grandmother, Grace was living with them. -- Ontario, Victoria-Haliburton 58 Lindsay page 11 Burke Philip Burke Mary Matherall Grace -- Margaret, I believe was a nurse at St. Michael's hospital on the 1911 Census. -- I have very little info on the Metherells although a Spear relative has helped with the second family.I would welcome any assistance you are able to give me on this family.I have a fairly sizeable Blewett tree, but, I am always searching for more.Please contact me privately at:Glenda.Schneider@sympatico.caso that we can share info.
