A mystery to Solve; Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson)
Received this e mail- Maybe some one has come across other helpful references for Lois
Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La
Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson)
Thanks Alex, I already have this info from your Books, but was hoping
it may have been condensed. I was in touch with The Anglican Archives
also but they say because it was a Presbyterian Minister they can't be
sure Harriet was even buried there. They don't know where, IF she was,
as there is no record.
The Freeholder said she was..........It sounds
like William was buried where he was -in the long uncut grass at the
back of the Cemetery [St John's Anglican, lancaster, Ontario] near the fence for a reason also, although all
census records say they were white, .........a mystery to solve !!
According to my records Harriets "parents" were Christopher Larocque /La
Roche/ Roche, etc. and Madeline ( Thompson/Tomson) Madelines' parents
are listed as Edouard Thomson and Mary Gervais of Williamstown.
Thomson (a black man) was given 176 acres of land at Lancaster by King
Edward after the 1812 war and this was passed on to his daughter
Madeline. Not sure why I'm telling you all this, but hoping you may come
up with some thing some day from it all. Thanks again Lois C Brooks Martintown Ontario (613) 528-1649
