Re: Anthony UPPER/Sarah SMITH
There were 2 Anthony Upper families, Ontario, Can., probably closely related. Yours, Mr. Edwards and mine are the same family.
Our Anthony was b.12 Sep 1820, don't know marriage date, d. 08 Sep 1905 in Forest Twp,
Genesee Co., MI. Bu. in Smith-Hill Cem., Otisville, MI. He married Sarah Jane Smith, b.30 Dec 1820,in Can.,She died 19 Mar 1900.
"It is possible..this Anthony is the son of the George Uppper who married Elizabeth sperbeck of Niagara prior to 1819.This George Uppper cannot be accounted for in the Jacob or Anthony Upper lines and may therefore have been a son of John Upper, the oldest son of George and Anna Upper." per Esther Summer's genealogy.
