Bio Photo Inspired by the pioneers of Perth county, Ontario, Canada, I enjoy entering memorials for these individuals and linking them to their families. I am amazed at how God can keep track of us all and knows each one of us intimately!

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.

I have John HAMILTON (1810-1887) born in Dumfriesshire & died in Elma, Ontario. After a long marriage to Joan BRYDON (c1809-1879, buried at Elma), he married Jessie Webster NOVICE in Elma on 27 Dec 1883 at 74 years of age. Witnesses at the wedding of John & Jessie were her son Alexander ROBERTSON (1859-1888) & Sarah ERSKINE (relative of her deceased husband, William Robertson, 1822-1878, buried in Elma). Son Alexander married Betsy Oliver ERSKINE (c1858-1932).
Jessie died 28 Oct 1892 & was buried as ROBERTSON. It is noted (on there was some conjecture re her birth year on the death certificate. This information may affect the relationships in my family tree. Am I able to access the death registration you refer to, as I have been unable to find a death registration for Jessie as NOVICE, ROBERTSON or HAMILTON on any site.
Hope you can help me with this issue.
Best regards
Rob Henderson

Jacob Schaub Family
Hi Lorna,
I'm not well versed as to the ins and outs of how this site works so forgive me. Just happened to come upon this. I am a distant relative of the Jacob Schaub family and have been trying to find information on them forever. Can you tell me what church I might contact regarding them or do you have any other information on Jacob, Agnes, Michael, Lucy or Emma? I have reason to believe Emma may have been a school teacher. Any information would be appreciated. The family originated from Perth County, Ontario, and I do have information for anyone else interested in what I might provide. Thank you!
