Elizabeth Dron/Drone and James Coventry from Scotland to Peel, ON, Canada
Hi, I'm Mark D'Elia from Niagara Falls, NY. I'm also related to a Dron/Drone (they seem to be used interchangably). My Dron/Drone is Elizabeth, born about 1806+/-1 in Abernethy, Perth. If this is my Elizabeth, she married a James Coventry, who was appx. 20 years older than she. I'm not sure whether they were married there or in Chinguacousy, Peel Co., Ontario, which is where they emigrated in the mid-late 1820's. I could find no record of their marriage in Scotland or births of their children. I am descended from their youngest child Elizabeth, who was born on June 11, 1841 and married Jacob Shook. Sadly, Elizabeth Drone Coventry passed away in June of 1842 at the age of just 36 or 37. James Coventry re-married a Mary Ann and I don't know her maiden name. Hopefully the Coventry-Shook connection will ring some bells for somebody. I found an Elizabeth Drone who was born 1805-07 in Abernethy and was the daughter of James Drone. I also found a James Coventry born in Abernethy in 1786, son of William Coventry, but I can't be positive whether she and James Coventry are indeed my gX4 grandparents based solely on the fact that they were both from Abernethy. Would love to hear from fellow Shook researchers and any help greatly appreciated.
