Mary Ann Secord EDY
I have just begun to research the Secords with intent. They are an elusive bunch. There are many family stories but what is truth is hard to unravel.
I am planning a trip back to Ontario in the next week to see if I can find some facts .My first place will be Niagara on the Lake as that seems to be where all the Butler's Rangers members settled after the American Revolution. I have seen the land records to this effect.
My next plan of attack is to check out several cemetaries including the Warner Burying Grounds which is very much in the news these days as to it's future with the planned expansion of the QEW. then I will check out St.Mark's cemetary in Niagara.
Next will be a trip to Oakland and Mt Pleasant Pioneer cemetaries in Brant county.
Finally I have reason to believe my great great grandparents Peter Edy and Mary Ann Secord are buried in the Villa Nova Baptist cemetary in Townsend,Norfolk county.
Hopefully my mission brings me some facts.
Any information on any of these places or people would be appreciated .
