I am searching for a document that will lead me to the parents of Henry Palmateer.I have found him on five census records in Sheffield Township, Lennox-Adding County of Upper Canada (now Ontario).I recently found information that leads me to believe he was born in or near Watertown, New York about 1821.On the 1851 census a widow named Christiana (very hard to read) Palmateer was living in his home.She was 70 and he was 30.I suspect he was a child of a second (possibly third) marriage.
The Henry Palmateer or Polmateer or Palmatier or . . . (the name lends itself to many variations) for whom I am searching was married first to Mary Keller and second to Almyra or Elmira (her name also has many variations in spelling) Abrams.
I would appreciate and suggestions on where I might look for this information
