Re: DELHENTY, DELAHUNT/E, DELAHANTY, DELUNT,
Thank you for your response, Doug.The Delhenty's are my husband's relatives.I do have a little more info as in some family records it states that Mabel was the daughter of Arthur Delhenty (my 91 year-old mother-in-law insists that this is the spelling although some have spelled it Dullhenty) and Sarah Marriott.We have records that Alexander Grant, Jr. first saw Mabel while she was ice-skating in St. Marys, Ontario (she is said to have been 17 at the time).We found Alexander Grant, Sr. (the minister)in the 1881 Canadian census.He was married to Anna Hudson of Ireland and they had six children.One was Alexander Grant, Jr., who was born April 16, 1874 in Oneida, Ontario, Canada.At the time of the census the family was living in St Marys, Ontario.(We know for a fact the other children listed were the siblings of Alexander Grant, Jr.). It is believed Alex and Mabel were high school sweethearts. Therefore, it was the son of the minister (not the minister) who married Mabel Nettie Delhenty.There is a little history regarding Alexander Grant, Jr.'s life on the Camp Tecumseh web site (he was one of three Penn U. olympians who founded that camp in New Hampshire). Alexander and Mabel had two daughters, one of whom is my mother-in-law.There are still many relatives in the Ontario area as far as we know.I'm trying to find an indexed version of the 1991 census from the St. Marys, Ontario area (from what I can gather they are still working on the project).I live in a state capitol and I may try their genealogy department for more resources. I have an address for vital records in St. Marys.Have you had any luck with writing?Do you know of another source for a later census than 1881 that is indexed for searching?
Thank you for the information.I wish you luck in your search.
