I am looking for anyone who might be related to the following family from Napier, Metcalfe Township, Middlesex County, Ontario Canada:
(Information from the 1851/52 Census of Metcalfe Township; surname seen as Morcom/Marcum in future census')
John Morcam, born in England, age 42, lived at Con 6 lot 2, a farmer, religion:Episcopalian
Mary Morcam, spouse, born in England, age 40, religion:Episcopalian
1.John, born in England, age 21, labourer/yeoman, religion:Episcopalian
2.Mary, born in Canada, age 18, religion:Episcopalian
3.Elizabeth, born in Canada, age 16, religion:Episcopalian
4.Samuel, born in Canada, age 14, religion:Episcopalian
5.Joseph, born in Canada, age 12, religion:Episcopalian
6.Walter, born in Canada, age 10, religion:Episcopalian (from 1891 census:wife Sarah, daughter Amelia, sons Walter and Arthur)
7.Anne, born in Canada, age 8, religion:Episcopalian
8.Rachael, born in Canada, age 6, religion:Episcopalian
9.Francis T., born in Canada, age 4, religion:Episcopalian (from 1891 census:wife Mary, sons John, Frank, James, daughters Amelia and Mary)
10.Susan, born in Canada, age 1, religion:Episcopalian
I believe that my great great grandmother Mary Markham, (who was born around 1861/1862 in Napier, Ontario and whose surname has been spelt several different ways in addition to Markham:Morcom and Markom) is John Jr's daughter.I know from Mary's marriage documents that her parent's name were John and Agnes.I suspect that John and Agnes may have died when Mary was young.
But so far I have been unable to find any connection between Mary and the above family.The above family is the only Morcom/Morcam/Markham/Markom family in the area around the time of my gg grandmother's birth.
As for Mary, she married Charles Sidney Dobbyn on 27 Jan 1885 in Shetland, Ontario, Canada, according to the Bothwell Times of February 1885.She gave birth to three children in Melita, Manitoba, Canada:Charles Stafford Dobbyn born in Apr 1886, John Francis Dobbyn born in Sep 1887 and Bruce Wycliffe Laird Dobbyn born in Aug 1889.She died in March of 1891 in Melita, presumably at the age of 29 and at the birth of her fourth child, possibly a breach.
