I would like to correct the information given about James Partlow born 1 Mar 1830 Clarenceville, Missisquoi Co., Quebec (not Ontario), Canada and died June 1900 in Alburgh, VT.He was not married to Margaret Scanlon and did not live in Ontario.
This James was the son of James and Eleanor/Lany [Van Dyke Partlow.The 1870 US census shows them all living in Alburgh (although the younger James is listed as Parklow - a misspelling).James married Louisa Bombard in 1860 in Alburgh.They raised seven children there.Philliar James (my great grandfather) born 1863 was their only son. The 1880 US census shows James and Louisa Partlow and six of their children living in Alburgh, VT.Their oldest child Melissa (Minnie) was already married at this time.
The 1881 Canadian census does show a James Partlo married to Margaret with several children.I do not have any information about his background but the Canadian census says he and his wife were born in the United States.My great great grandfather James was living in Vermont and his record says he was born in Canada.
I have a death certificate for the elder James husband of Lany who died in Alburgh in October 1876.
