Hi Lorna, I wanted to thank you for all your hard work creating pages and taking pictures for the Cosens family. Charles and Ann are my maternal Grandparents six generations back from me. I would not known who they were, let alone where their final resting places are with pictures of grave markers. God Bless and thanks again, James Robinson

RE: Knoke Family
Yes, Lorna that is the family. Henry Sr. is the father, Henry Jr. is one of the four siblings

Henry Sr. is the one who died in 1860. What church were they members of?

For what its worth, Im working with a historian in Hammenstedt Germany on the families of the 32 emigrants (they all came from Hammenstedt, a small farming community in central Germany of about 300 people or so. Let me know if you are interested in that research, I would be happy to share it with you.

Knoke Family
Hello Lorna, I was wondering if I can ask you a question. My family, the Knoke's Harborth's, Ronnenbergs etc were early pioneers of Perth County, Arriving in the summer of 1847. My Third great grandfather Heinrich Knoke died Logan township in 1860. I have been unable to find a stone for him or for that matter what church they belonged to. I know it was a Lutheran Church and that is about it. Have you ever seen any gravestones or church book entries for the Knoke family? Sometimes spelled Knoka, or Kanoke. Henrichs son August and his family lived in Canada for quite some time. The rest of the family moved to Iowa in the spring of 1875.

Thank you and best Regards

Alexander Cambell/Marion Morrison
Ms. McMahon,
I am trying to locate one of long lost ancestors.
The names are Alexander Campbell married to Marion Morrison. In a letter written many years ago by Marion Detwiller Anhorn. Marion writes this couple came to North America in 1828. her letter mentions the names of two children: Marion Campbell b. abt 1812 and her brother names Traford or Treford. Both Marion and Treford/Traford lived in Perth Co., Ontario Canada. Marion Campbell Detwiller married Christian Detwiller/Dettweiler. They first lived near Hespeler, Waterloo Co., Ontario, Canada, had their first three children there and then in about 1848-1850., moved to Perth Co., Ontario, Canada. The children of the Christian Detwiller/Marion Campbell union are well documented. Christian Detwiller died there and was buried in St. Marys Cemetery, St. Marys, Perth Co., Ontario, Canada. I have not found where Marion Campbell was buried. A search of the records at the Stratford, Ontario Genealogy Library shows several Alexander Campbells and one Traford Campbell living in Perth County in the same time frame but I have not been able to find evidence of a family connection.

In your own research, have you come across any family records of an Alexander Campbell married to a Marion Morrison, possibly living in Perth Co., Ontario, Canada? They may have been born and married in Scotland. I have no birth or death dates for this couple but their daughter Marion Campbell was reported as being born in October 14, 1812. One of the records I have seen for Marion Campbell gives her first name as Mary Ann Campbell. It was a marriage record in Waterloo Co., Ontario, Canada.

Thank you and have a Merry Christmas,

Porterfield Line
Are you related to the Porterfield line? I am from the Hood line, but am researching Mary Hood who married Robert Porterfield on Jan. 24, 1893, Howick, Huron, Ontario. From what I could find out, Robert's parents were John and Charlotte Porterfield but I can't seem to find them on findagrave.

Hello Lorna,

I have searched the cemetery lots and the records for this request but havent come up with anything. may have overlooked it and will go back again.

Are you positive that she is buried here? If so, do you have any other info that might help me locate the stone. I work with the cemetery and am happy to help

Hi Lorna
Thanks for the data re Jessie Webster ROBERTSON. I also have her as Jessie W NOVICE on a marriage registration to John HAMILTON in Elma, Ontario. I will upload the reg (source: She is listed on that site as Jessie (Jane/Jannet) MOVICE/NOICE. She married William ROBERTSON and after his death she married John HAMILTON. Does this fit with what you know of her? I found a marriage registration for her son George Robertson to Margaret INGLIS in Elma. His mother's maiden name is recorded as NOVY. Yet another variation.
Thanks again for the data on Jessie.
