I am looking for any information on John Tisdell/Tisdale (my ggrandfather)and Elizabeth McKibbon who emigrated to Canada on or before 1850 from Ireland. They married 16 March 1850 in St. Paul's Cathedral, Toronto. John's residence at the time was Etobicoke and Elizabeth's was the township of York. I can only find the following:
Elizabeth -- born about 1826, Ireland, Died between 1864 and 1869. Parentage unknown.
John -- born about 1821(possibly Cavan Co., Ireland) Died 14 Mar 1897 near Corbetton, ON. He was the son of Peter Tisdell and Letitia Bloomer.
They lived in Ontario all their lives after emigration. During John's marriage to Elizabeth, he used the name Tisdell; the name Tisdale appears after his marriage to his 2nd wife, Susannah Fearns.
I am also looking for information on the natural parents of Frederick, adopted by Thomas John Tisdale (son of John Tisdell/Tisdale and Elizabeth McKibbon) and Keziah Glover. According to census records, both his parents were born in Ireland. Frederick was born 13 Jun 1881 and was living with his adoptive parents in 1891 in North Wellington ON CAN, age 9. He died 30 Jan 1960 at Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
I would like to know who his parents were, where his parents came from in Ireland, what the circumstances of his adoption were, and if he was the child of relations, friends or acquaintances. He could have been the child of any of these as John Thomas Tisdale and Keziah Glover were 1st generation Irish Canadians, as was Frederick.
