Isabella DeWar (1816 - 1888)

Posted: 1270407904000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Dewar, Campbell, McGillivray
I'm hoping to find information regarding the parents and siblings of my 3rd great grandmother, Isabella Dewar.

b: 1816 in Lochiel, Glengarry, Ontario
d: 2 Jan 1888 in Fort Erie, Welland, Ontario
m: 11 Oct 1838 in Lochiel, Glengarry (per 1861 census)

Husband: Miles Campbell (son of John and Mary McGillivray Campbell)

b: 1816 in Glengarry
d: 8 Sept 1908 in Thorold, Welland, Ontario

I have found Isabella, Miles and their children on the 1852, 1861, 1871 and 1881 census records (as well as 1891 for Miles). They "removed" from Glengarry to Wellington sometime between the 1852 and 1861 census years.

Children:

Mary b: 1841 in Glengarry
Catherine b: 24 Sept 1843 in Glengarry (my 2nd great grandmother)
John Archibald b: 25 Apr 1845 in Glengarry
William b: 1847 in Glengarry
Sarah Ann b: 1850 in Glengarry
Donald J b: 1854 in ? (probably Glengarry)

I've listed their children as I know how names are repeated from one generation to the next and it might provide a clue as to Isabella's siblings or parents.

Here's hoping for a connection with some of the other known Dewars in Glengarry.
