John Askin & Mary McDermott

Surnames: Askin McDermott Harron

I am seeking information regarding John Askin who married Mary McDermott on 16 Sept 1833 in Toronto by the Rev. James Harris. Witnesses included Mary Askin & James McDermaid (McDermott).

John & Mary had a daughter Mary Jane who was born 16 Aug 1834 in Toronto. Mary Jane later married Robert Harron and lived in Bruce County. I don't have any concrete information regarding John Askin other than he was born in Ireland. His wife Mary McDermott was born about 1800 in Ireland.

I did find a John Askin in the 1837 & 1843 Toronto Directory listed as a carter on Newgate Street but I'm not sure if this is him. He is not listed in the 1850-51 Toronto Directory but a Mrs. Mary Askin on Adelaide street was found. There was also a John Askin that was found in the Potters Field Cemetery listing who died on 21 March 1847 in Toronto. Are they the same man?

Any information on this family or where I could find further information will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
