Re: STAPLEY/STAPELEY, Thomas and Henry
Hi. I noticed that you said your Stapleys lived in Belleville, Ontario.
I'm interested in learning more about Esther Stapley who married Henry Averill there in 1836. According to the Averell/Averill/Avery Genealogy by Clara A. Avery, Henry was born in Utica, NY in 1809, and married Esther in Belleville. They were the parents of eight children.The Genealogy says that the first two children were born in Belleville. This family moved from Belleville to New York State, and eventually settled in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
We think that this Henry Averill is related in some way to our ancestor Henry Averill, who was born in Canada in 1832, but we are not sure what the connection may be.
Do you have any information about Esther Stapley?
Thank you very much.
