I have a copy of the JAMES RATH/MARY LEE family tree compiled in about 1983 by Muriel Rath Sadler of Carleton Place, Ontario.We corresponded a few times several years ago (before her death) after I contacted her inquiring whether her James Rath was related to my James Rath.We could find no direct link between her family and mine, even though our families both came from County Wexford, Ireland.I still think we may be connected, but haven't yet discovered the link.
My JAMES RATH (b.1808 Enniscorthy, Co.Wexford, Ireland-d.1856 Dorchester, Middlesex Co, Ontario, Canada) was married about 1825 in Ireland to JEMIMA HALL (b.1802 Enniscorthy, Co.Wexford, Ireland; d.1894 Dorchester, Middlesex Co, Ontario, Canada).They immigrated with their first nine children to Canada in about 1841, settling for a few years near Brockville, Ontario; they later moved to North Dorchester Twp., Middlesex Co, Ontario (near London).Their last three children were born in Ontario, including my gg grandfather Henry 'David' Rath.
Your JAMES RATH (b.1770 in Co Wexford, Ireland) & wife MARY LEE (b.unknown in Ireland) had nine children: ALICE (1795-1875) married Benjamin Dockerell; HENRY #1 (b.& d.unknown in Ireland); HENRY #2 (1799-1883) married Ellen Ward; MARGARET married Thomas Knight; JANE (b.& d.unknown in Ireland); JAMES Jr.(1811/1817-1874) married Sarah Leary; JOHN (1811-1904) married Catherine Graham Moore; ESTHER (1814-1905) married Andrew Geddes & James Dickson. There was also another infant who apparently died in infancy.
I could send you an Outline Descendancy Chart if you want me to, either by e-mail or snail mail.Let me know either, or both, of your addresses if you want further information.
