Surnames: Crawford, Boyd
I am descended from the Crawford family who migrated to the Pittsburgh twp. area sometime after 1817. James Crawford married Margaret Boyd 1840 in St. Andrew's church, Kingston. They bought a 99 acre property, Lot 15, Concession 2, Pittsburgh twp. The stone house still exists and is off something called middle road- partway between Kingston and Gananoque. They sold it in 1881 when they moved to Manitoba. I have some pictures and information but I, too, would like more. Perhaps we can help each other. I live in Manitoba.

Dear Sue Smith, I see your relatives worshiped at St. Andrew's Kingston. My great grandmother had her first child christened there in 1849. Names listed were George Clark and Lily Ann Rea. But I guess she had her family name as a middle name because last year I did find that she was a Grimsby when she married George Clark. There was a Wm. Grimsby and wife in North Burgess,Lanark Co. who later on moved to Manitoba. He was a younger brother I guess of Lily Ann.
I can't find George Clark in the 1851 census of Kingston. Is
there and mention of that name in your Kingston sources.?

I have a Benjamin Clark born in Pittsburg, Canada, in March of 1818, son of Henry CLARK and grandson of John P. CLARK of Mohawk Valley (NY), who was a farmer and later moved to Canada with his family. Henry's wife was was Caroline CURL, although she appears to have been called Pearl Curl. Henry and Caroline's children were Henry, John, Charles, Robert, Benjamin, Matthew, William, Peggy, Hetta, and Betsey. Benjamin married Mary Ann SHEPARD (daughter of Peter Shepard) of Canada, and in 1854 moved to Oswego Couty NY. Benjamin's children included George, Matthew, John, William, Charles, Lewis, Elizabeth, Margaret, Eliza, Mary, Sarah and Clara. I thought that it was worth noting a George Clark born in Pittsburgh around 1848. Perhaps there is a connection.

Dear James, Thanks for your reply. Your Clark and mine don't seem to fit. My great grandfather, George Clark, came with the English Army in 1838-1844. His father stayed in Scotland. There was a George Clark in the 1851 census of Frintenac Co. but when I checked on this he was an older man, with more children.The Wm. Grimsby was a younger brother to my greatgrandmother,Lily Ann Grimsby Clark, I think (not proven). That Wm was born in Ireland in 1826 and arrived in Canada in 1838.It is hard to find records that early in the game. But thanks for trying to help me.

My great great grandfather is Benjamin also. John Richard Clark, his son, my great grandfather and Howard Richard Clark, his son, my grandfather. His daughter, Beverly Lillian Clark Finch, my Mom. She will be 90 on November 4. Which of his children belongs to you? I have done all of them as close to contemporary as I can get save for Clara, Sarah and Mary Ann. My last three -- my winter project.
I have been looking for Henry (the right one) and John in Canada forever. I was able to do most of Henry's children and their families to pretty current. I still have 3 of them to work on. I had to take a hiatus for the summer. I am pretty sure that Benjamin's brother Charles Edward left Canada after he lost land in the courts up there and came into New York in the northern Clayton area. I also think that John had sons --- Harry, Harvey and John J that either stayed in New York or came down to New York. I find Harvey and Harry both in Oswego County area. There was a also a John in Sandy Creek area. Not sure 100% if they are all related. There had to be a reason why Benjamin and even Charles, for that matter, came into NY. Family was a very important reason for migrating. I was wondering if you have ever found more concrete evidence in Canada records for either Henry or John? Would love to hear from you and some feedback. Dorothy Zarda Shawnee, KS 913-631-1943
