Re: Looking for cousins
I too am looking for Cockfield cousins from Montreal.My grandmother was Emilia Amelia Cockfield.Her father Joseph Cockfield had a brother, Moses Cockfield, who lived in Montreal with his wife, Elizabeth, and his children in the late 1800's.We have pictures of them, including Jessie Cockfield, and also of Robert Wilfred Hartley at aged 4 months and 18 months.I think this is your family. Joseph Cockfield came to Canada in 1859 and worked as a mechanical superintendant for various railways in Ontario.He was from Darlington, England and on his marriage registration in Ontario gave his parents names as
James Cockfield and A. Blackett. He had two sons who moved to the US in the late 1800's.We have kept in touch with these Cockfields.I am wanting to know more about the descendants of Moses Cockfield--including Henry, Joseph and Annie(possibly Mary Ann) as well as Jessie. They are all listed in the 1881 Canadian Census as being born in Quebec. I look forward to you, Kathy, or someone elsereplying with other information. I have more information as well.
