Re: Ellen Cowherd b. 1843 Brantford, Ontario
Ellen was the daughter of Thomas and Ann (Batty) Cowherd.She married Joseph Hartley on March 20, 1859.
Her mother Ann died March 9, 1847 and I think she died in Brantford, not Chatham, as the family lived in Brantford where Thomas had a tinsmith shop for over 40 years.He assisted Alexander Graham Bell with the first telephones. Thomas married Ann's sister Ellen on Sept 26, 1847 and they had eleven children.
Thomas Cowherd lived in Chatham for only six years prior to his death.
