Re: Information on James Common
Can't help you but you might have run across the marriage of Mary Common to William Weatherston approx 1839.William Weatherston had settled in Westminster about 1834 and she was a widow.We think "Common" was her maiden name and that she therefore was remarried under the name of her first husband, who came from Stow, Scotland.We have no idea what her first husband's name was.She was born about 1810 and died in 1895 in Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON. She is buried in Pond Mills Cemetery, London, ON.
We figure she must have emigrated either with or to her family, and that the marriage may have been prearranged by letter.
I have reference in 1874 that her nephew John Common had died. As far as I am aware, she had no relatives in the London/Westminster area except for her 2nd husband's people.
Thanks for your help.
