Searching for my Great Grandmother's family.
I know very little & no luck finding her family in Kent or Lambton Co's.
Harriet Ann Yates b. abt 1841 or 1844 Ontario.
She married Thomas George Taylor before 1865 Kent Co(?)
1871 Kent Census places her in Plymton, Lambton Co.
She died Kent Co 29 Apr 1876, per death certificate.
Found her will in England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966.
Probate Date: 12 Jul 1880
Thomas & Harriet's children were: Cynthia Marie, George Henry, William A & Frederick Thomas(grandfather).
Thomas George Taylor next married Sarah Jane Birchell(sp?) before 1881 in Kent Co.
Any help appreciated.

There is no 1852 census available for Lambton.
Did not find her on 1861 census anywhere.

I shoeboxed a possible one it is listed as Hariett Yeats in the 1861 Kent Co Census birth 1842, but that is all I had found.

I am a descendant of David Yates and Maria Elliot. I believe Harriet Ann Yates m. Thomas Taylor to be their daughter. The were married 19 Nov. 1863 in St. Clair Michigan. The marriage record indicates that Thomas was residing in Wallaceburg at the time, and Harriet was residing in Harwich. I have a fair bit on the Elliot family, a little on the Yates. Would love to correspond.
