About the Project and the Cemetery
by Wesley Johnston

SPECIAL NOTE: Starting August 2011, I have begun adding the grave stone photos without the full research. The research of the inter-connections of the families grows exponentially: as more families are added, the number of inter-connections multiplies instead of just adds to the complexity. But the pictures are of value to people doing research. So I do not want the pictures to sit and wait for the research to be done before they are posted. So I am slowly posting the pictures, and the research will come later to tell how they are inter-connected with the other families. I am including all stones and not just the old ones, although my research will focus on the 1830-1860 families.

This is not a cemetery project. It is a local and family history project. I am seeking to understand who the people of the community were in the middle 1800's and to see how these families were related to each other. There is already an excellent web page that contains transcriptions of the grave stones. However, as you will see below, the information that I am seeking to gather goes well beyond the grave stone information.

I am not an expert on this church and cemetery. So there are probably errors here, and there is probably a lot more to know about the congregation and the history of the church and the cemetery than you will find here. But my ancestors, Solomon and Jane Butson and their children, attended this church and are buried in the cemetery. I visited the church location (the church was already then long gone) and the cemetery in 1977 and took a rubbing of the stone of Solomon & Jane. Most of what I think I know came from information provided to me in 1977 by the then-caretaker who I visited at his home in Brooklin (where he showed me how to do dowsing to find underground objects, such as graves whose stones were then grouped together in the cairn in the center of the cemetery).

This entire project would not have been possible without the extensive work of Christine Ferguson and her son Rob Evans, both of Oshawa, to photograph every one of the stones in the cemetery, so that they could be included here. Christine is a cousin of my Gibson cousins. (Solomon Butson's son Henry's daughter Emma married John Johnston, who was the half-brother of James Gibson, the ancestor of Christine's and my cousins, through his granddaughter Hilda Gibson Clapper.)

Project Database: The project has an Ancestry.com tree, which contains all of the research (expect for a couple of the first St. Pual's families) that I did for these web pages. Click here to see that tree, if you are an Ancestry.com member. Since non members cannot see the tree nor the attached documents (over 500 of them as of September 17, 2009), you can right-click here and then choose SAVE LINK AS to download the GEDCOM file of the tree as of September 17, 2009 to your computer, so that you can then import it into your family tree software program.

The Town

The town of Columbus, Ontario was originally called English Corners, probably due to the concentration of so many families of English and Cornish origins who lived there and on the surrounding farms at the southeast part of Ontario County, in East Whitby Township (see 1877 atlas map below). To the south is Oshawa. Even closer to the west is Brooklin (formerly known as Winchester, north of Whitby). Two concessions to the north is the crossroads post office of Raglan (apparently called Newton in 1851), and further north along the same road is Port Perry. If you are using Google Earth, use 4358'57.26"N and 7854'41.17"W.

Until 1852, there was no Ontario County. Prior to 1852, the townships of what became Ontario County were part of the Eastern Riding of York County. Whitby Township was split vertically in half on January 1, 1858 (under the terms of the Baldwin Act, Chapter 81, Canada Statutes, 1849), with the eastern half becoming Whitby East Township. The lot numbers from 1 to 18 became Whitby East, with the lot numbers from 19 to 36 continuing as Whitby Township. In 1974, Ontario County was dissolved and most of its townships became part of the Regional Municipality of Durham. At that time, East Whitby Township and the city of Oshawa were amalgamated into the city of Oshawa (which had officially become a city in 1924). (See the Ontario County GenWeb and the Ontario Archives page on East Whitby Township for more on this.)

A very good site for historic maps of this area is the Port Perry/Scugog Heritage Gallery.

Here is an 1851 map that still shows the name as English Corners. English Corners of Columbus, Ontario

The Cemetery

The cemetery is located just west of Columbus, at the southeast corner of the junction of the east-west road that separates concessions 6 and 7 and the north-south road (now Thornton Road North) that separates lots 16 and 17. If you are using Google Earth, use 4358'40.08"N and 7855'49.45"W.

Transcription History

The photographs included on this page were taken in 2009. There is a transcription of the cemetery stones, apparently from about 2002, here. The Whitby-Oshawa Branch (now part of the Durham Region Branch) of the Ontario Genealogical Society published a transcription, with a map of all the graves, in 1982.

The Church

At the cemetery, a large a stone reads "Erected on the site of St. Paul's Anglican Church - 1835 - 1935". The 1877 atlas shows no picture of a church building; so it seems likely that only that contains the church photograph gives this information: "This church and cemetery were established by Rev. John Pentland in 1835 at lot 16, concession 6, East Whitby Township, on the 7th concession west of Columbus. The church was destroyed by fire on May 2, 1922 when the caretaker, George Browne, was burning the grassy field and the fire got out of control. The cemetery is still used for burials."

Another Whitby Public Library web page provides this information about Rev. Pentland "Reverend John Pentland was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1804 and was educated at Kilkenny, Ireland, Trinity College, Dublin; and Cambridge University in England. He served in the British Army from 1824 until he married in 1830 and served in France, Spain and Italy. In 1830 he became a minister of the Church of England and served in Wales, France and Ireland before coming to Canada in 1835. He established his first church in 1835 at Columbus in Whitby Township (St. Paul's Anglican Church). He founded St. John's Anglican Church at Port Whitby in 1841 and built a church of Kingston limestone in 1846. He served as minister of this congregation until his retirement in 1863. He continued to preach in Prince Albert and Port Perry for a while, but poor health caused him to lead a quiet life in Whitby where he died on May 18, 1871. Rev. John Pentland is buried at St. John's Anglican Cemetery, Port Whitby." Yet Another Whitby Public Library web page has his photograph.

Other Cemeteries of Columbus

  • Baptist
    The 1877 atlas clearly shows another church and cemetery, just to the west of the St. Paul's cemetery. It was at the junction of the Concession 6-7 road and the road that separates lots 18 and 19. The 1877 atlas clearly shows a cemetery there also, which is visible on Google Earth (4358'30.85"N and 7856'27.16"W). This was the Dryden Baptist Church of Columbus. The Ontario Cemeteries web site makes no mention of this cemetery, but Rootsweb does have a Dryden Baptist Cemetery web page, with information about where to purchase a book of transcriptions of the cemetery. The church apparently received the name Dryden from John Dryden, who was born at Brooklin in 1840 (when it was still called Winchester) and is buried at the church. On the map above, he is shown owning land a short distance west of the church, and the land immediately north of the church is owned by James Dryden. John Dryden served in several significant governmental roles.
  • Methodist
    Click here for my separate web page with much more information about the Columbus Methodist Cemetery. The Ontario Cemeteries web site does have a transcription of the Columbus Methodist Cemetery, which was in Columbus, between the fourth and fifth houses east of Simcoe Street (435858.11 N, 785432.08W on Google Earth), though it is not shown in the 1877 atlas.
  • Bible Christian
    Rootsweb shows the Columbus Bible Christian cemetery at the west edge of town. It is on the south side of Columbus Road (the old road that separates Concessions 6 and 7), just west of the large building and two houses west of Simcoe Street (4358'54.94"N, 7854'45.60"W on Google Earth). It is not on the Ontario Cemeteries web site, nor does it appear in the 1877 atlas. But there is a Rootsweb web page to order a transcription book. According to a Whitby Public Library web page, Frederick William Browne who was born one mile northwest of Columbus in 1870, restored the Columbus Bible Christian cemetery in 1946.
  • Presbyterian
    The Whitby Public Library has a web page on Rev. Robert Hill Thornton. It states that he founded a Presbyterian church at Columbus, with no date given. An Ajax-Pickering web page states that he had had the small congregation at Columbus for two years at the time of the Mackenzie Rebellion (1837). I have found no mention of where the members of this church were buried. I have found no web site that mentions a Presbyterian cemetery at or near Columbus. Another Ajax-Pickering web page quotes "Past Years in Pickering" that his central church was at "Thornton's Crossroads" and that, from that base, he served people in Columbus, Brooklin, Claremont, Brougham, Pickering and Dunbarton. In 1837, he built a church on the site of Union Cemetery (Oshawa) on the Kingston Road, which is where he is buried and where Presbyterians from Columbus may likely have chosen to be buried.

Clearly the Cornish names in the Methodist cemetery and the Cornish (specifically Luxulyan) origin of the Bible Christian church and the proximity of the Baptist church are also of great significance for the overall project that I have in mind. Nevertheless, I am all too finite in my resources, and I have to start somewhere. So I am beginning this in-depth study with the St. Pauls's Anglican Cemetery and the Columbus Methodist Cemetery page is currently only receiving updates when a Columbus St. Paul's Anglican family has connections to a Columbus Methodist burial. And even there, I will focus on the Cornish families from 1830-1860.

Where They Lived

Here is a reconstruction of the 1851 agricultural census (taken in 1852). 1852 Whitby Township (east half)
Click on the map to see the full-size version.

This map was made by placing the names in the 1851 ag census onto the lots they were farming. The surviving census only includes the east half of Whitby Township (lots 1-18, which became East Whitby Township in 1853). The town of Columbus is on the lots whose entries are in red.
Click here to see the spreadsheet that was used to create this map. In addition to the map, it contains sheets with all of the ag census entries in the following sequential orderings:
1 - Order as enumerated (page and line of the census)
2 - By concession and lot
3 - By lot and concession
4 - By name
Some names are difficult to read and transcribe. So please do check all records in the PDF file of the original.

Here is an 1877 map that shows the town and the location of the church and cemetery (inside the yellow circle). Columbus, Ontario and area of its Churches and Cemeteries
The east-west road is the road that separates concessions 6 and 7.
Click on the map to see the northern half of Whitby East Township and the adjoining part of Whitby Township (from the 1972 reprint).
Or click here to see the entire East Whitby Township in a high resolution scan (from the original).

I am still working on the "1851" (really taken in 1852) agricultural census, which shows the lot and concession numbers of the farmers, so that I can fully establish just where the St. Paul's Anglican Cemetery families lived. They were NOT just in the Columbus area. For example, Solomon BUTSON lived on Concession 9 Lot 6, which is several miles northeast of Columbus and even further from the church and cemetery.

Censuses of 1851 and 1861

Since I do not yet know the range, I may have to add to the following. You can click on the links below to see PDF files of the original census images.

  • 1851 Census of Whitby Township
    • District 1 (East half: Lots 1-18, excluding the village of Oshawa)
    • District 2 (West half: from the west line east to lot 19) - I have not done any of these yet.
  • 1861 Census of East Whitby Township (apparently only the population census still exists, though I am not certain of this)

Observations from the Stones

There must have been a virulent disease in the Spring and Summer of 1850, since so many children died in those months of that year. Chicago was undergoing an epidemic at about this time, but I do not know if it had spread to the Toronto and Oshawa area -- or vice versa or if it began elsewhere and spread to both places.

Related Web Page

"From Cornwall to Canada in 1841" is my web page about the 1841 voyage of four ships from Cornwall to Canada. The ships carried 600 Cornish people, mostly from the area of St. Blazey and nearby at St. Austell and Luxulyan. After the long narrative, at the bottom of the web page, I have information about the families and other families that came from the same area of Cornwall to the same area of Canada. For example, the Bealls came in 1840, and there are many Bealls buried in the Columbus Methodist cemetery, and the Butsons came in 1840 and are buried in the Oshawa Pioneer Garden and St. Paul's (as well as at Groveside and Port Perry and -- in the Huron Tract -- Staffa).

    Family Information and Links: (names on the stones are in bold below)
  • 21 Nov 1848 George Beckett, with land on Concession 3 Lots 16-17 in 1852, married Charity Keam Butson, daughter of Solomon Butson and Jane Keam, farming Conc 9 Lot 6 in 1852.
  • 1 Feb 1852, George & Charity Beckett's second child (first was Thomas George Beckett) James Beckett was born. He would be followed by three sisters and then two brothers, the last of whom (John Beckett) was born 1859. George Beckett died 26 June 1892 at Oshawa and Charity (Butson) Beckett died 16 Nov 1899 in East Whitby Township. Death reports of that era did not record burial information, but they are almost certainly buried at St. Paul's Anglican Cemetery.
  • 7 Feb 1883, James Beckett married Mary Helen Hallowell at Columbus. She was the daughter of John (born in England) & Ann Hallowell (Ireland). They were Roman Catholics, but Mary appears with her husband's religion in the censuses. I have thus far not researched when the Hallowell parents arrived in East Whitby nor any of their linkages with other families.
  • 26 January 1885, James & Mary Beckett's daughter Edith Beckett was born. I do not know of any other children prior to her. She was apparently hypercephalic, since her death report says that she had water on the brain for almost the same duration as her brief life. Click here to see the page with her birth report.
  • 15 May 1885, Edith Beckett died. The informant on her death report was John Hallowell, her grandfather. Click here to see the page with her death report.
  • 17 Decemer 1886, James & Mary Beckett's daughter Helen Jane Beckett was born. She would go by the name Ellen Jane Beckett and would marry Frederick A. Magee. See her information with the Magee stone, which is where she is buried.
  • 22 Sep 1925, James Beckett died. He was farming Conc 6 Lot 30 but resided at Columbus, which is where his wife Mary showed her residence as the informant. The report shows that he was buried at St. Paul's Columbus 24 Sep 1925. Click here to see the page with his death report.
  • I have not been able to find when Mary (Hallowell) Beckett died. There is a Mary Helen Beckett who died 18 August 1943 in the Vancouver (British Columbia) death index, aged 80 and thus born about 1863. And Mary the wife of James and mother of Edith was born 5 May 1863. There is not sufficient information from this index entry nor from other sources to yet determine if this was her. And there is no stone for her at St. Paul's.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:

  • Butson family relationships
    1. Charity Keam Butson was the mother of James Beckett.
    2. There is also a much more distant relationship. Charity's daughter Drucilla Beckett was the mother of Aaron Edward Thompson (7 Jun 1879 in Euphrasia Twp in Grey County). Aaron married Letitia Irwin 15 Dec 1909 (in Euphrasia Twp). She was the sister of Martha Jane Irwin who married Robert Gibson 23 Mar 1903 (Euphrasia). Robert was the son of James Gibson who was the half-brother of John Johnston, who married Emma Butson 24 May 1876 in Reach Twp. Emma was the daughter of Charity Keam Butson's brother Henry Butson.

  • Hallowell family relationships
    James Beckett's wife Mary was a Hallowell.

  • Magee family relationships
    James & Mary Beckett's daughter Ellen married Frederick A. Magee.

  • Aaron Thompson family (Darlington Township, Durham County) relationships
    1. James Beckett's brother Thomas George Beckett married (24 Dec 1874 Prince Albert) Susannah Thompson.
    2. James and Thomas' sister Drucilla Beckett married (24 Mar 1876 Prince Albert) John Thomas Thompson, brother of Thomas' wife Susannah.

    Family trees on Ancestry.com show James Burr born 1793 in Kent, England, where in 1822 he married Hannah (whose surname is unknown but may possibly have been Browne). They had four known children, the first of whom was born in England and the rest in Canada.
  • 26 May 1833 (per her death record, though her 1901 census shows her born 12 Sep 1841), their daughter Eliza Burr was born in Kent, England.
  • About 1840, daughter Mary Ann Burr was born in Canada. The date of her birth is given in the 1901 census as 15 Aug 1837 and in the 1911 census as May 1838. Her age in the 1852 census was 11, in 1861 22, in 1871 32. But by the time of her birth, the family had come to Canada.
  • About 1844, son Alfred Burr was born. In the 1851/2 census, he is 7 and in 1861 17, but then his age starts diverging from 10-year increments. In the 1901 census, his birthdate is given as 14 Feb 1846, which does not agree with the early censuses.
  • In 1846, Brown's Toronto City and Home District Directory 1846-7 shows James Burr living in Whitby Township.
  • In 1850, an infant son was born. In 1851, he died at age 13 months.
  • 8 Nov 1850, daughter Eliza Burr married Richard Hicks in Whitby Township (Wesleyan Methodist). Their first known child was born 1856 at Oshawa and the next 1857 in Reach. Richard Hicks died about 1860 and Eliza remarried in Reach to Joseph Leaming (17 Nov 1861).
  • In the 1851/2 census, Mary Ann and Alfred are living with their parents in the eastern half of Whitby Township.
  • In the 1861 census, James and Hannah Burr and Eliza Burr Hicks' son William H. Hicks are living in East Whitby. Mary Ann Burr is a hired servant in the East Whitby home of Mary Clark.
  • Also in the 1861 census, Mary Ann Burr's brother Alfred Burr was a labourer, residing in Whitby, and working in Darlington Township (Durham County) for the family of Aaron & Mary Ann Thompson (who are connected to many other families of Columbus). He later married their daughter Elizabeth Thompson. And in 1872, he and Elizabeth witnessed the marriage of her sister Ellen to John Lambkin.
  • About 1863, Mary Ann Burr married Stephen DeMill.
  • In 1871, Mary And & Stephen DeMill were living in Mariposa Township (Victoria County) with their 9 year old daughter Louisa and Stephen's father Thomas DeMill. Louisa was apparently adopted by Mary Ann & Stephen Burr, since Louisa's husband Daniel Knapp was identified as "son-in-law by adoption" on Mary Ann's 1927 death record.
  • In 1881, Mary Ann & Stephen & Louisa DeMill were living in Cartwritght Township (Durham County), with 60-year-old labourer William Noble in their household.
  • 13 Oct 1885, Mary And & Stephen DeMill's daughter Louisa married Daniel Abraham Knapp in Darlington Township (Durham County).
  • In 1891, Mary Ann & Stephen DeMill are still living in Cartwright Twp with their 7-year-old son Alfred DeMill. I have not been able to find whether Alfred was also adopted or was their natural son, but since Mary Ann was in her 50's when he was born, an adoption seems more probable. The family of 41-year-old Anthony DeMill & wife Mary Jane is the second prior family.
  • By 1901. Mary Ann & Stephen & Alfred DeMill had moved to Bowmanville (Durham County).
  • 19 Apr 1906, Mary Ann & Stephen DeMill's son Alfred DeMill married Nellie Wharton
  • In 1911, Mary Ann & Stephen DeMill are living alone in Bowmanville.
  • Family trees on Ancestry.com place Stephen DeMill's death in Coburg, Ontario 7 Aug 1925, thus two years before Mary Ann's death. I have no death record nor burial record for him. So it is not known if he is in an unmarked grave at St. Paul's or is buried in Coburg.
  • Mary Ann (Burr) DeMill died 15 April 1927 and was buried 17 April 1927 at St. Paul's. She died on Lot 9 Concession 6 of East Whitby Township. Her "son-in-law by adoption" Daniel Knapp (R.R. #1 Columbus) was the informant.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:

  • DeMill family relationships
    Mary Ann Burr was the wife of Stephen DeMill, who was apparently from Mariposa Township in Victoria County.

  • Hicks family relationships
    Mary Ann Burr's sister Eliza Burr's first husband (m 8 Nov 1850 Whitby - Wesleyan Methodist) was Richard Hicks.

  • Lambkin family relationships (via Thompson)
    Mary Ann Burr's brother Alfred Burr's wife Elizabeth Thompson's sister Ellen Thompson married (7 Oct 1872 East Whitby) John Lambkin, son of Stephen & Nancy Lambkin. Alfred and Elizabeth were the witnesses at the wedding.

  • Aaron Thompson family relationships
    Mary Ann Burr's brother Alfred Burr in 1861 (then living in Whitby Township) was a Labourer for Aaron & Mary Ann Thompson in Darlington Township, Durham County. This is the same Thompson family to which the Beckett and Butson families are related.

    Family Information and Links:
  • Solomon BUTSON was baptized 10 November 1793 at St. Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall, son of John BUTSON and Elizabeth RICKARD.
  • Jane KEAM was baptized 22 July 1792 at Luxulyan, Cornwall, daughter of Robert KEAM and Mary PHILIPS.
  • Solomon and Jane married 15 March 1817 at St. Blazey, Cornwall.
  • From 1817 to 1833, they had ten children, nine of whom survived (there may have been one more, since there is a gap in the births in 1827 and 1828) and came to Canada with their parents in 1840 (two sons survived until the 1901 Census and both gave 1840 as the year of their arrival).
  • The first record of the family in Canada is the marriage at St. James Cathedral in Toronto of their eldest child Mary Keam BUTSON to Joseph HAMBLEY on 19 July 1841.
  • The second record of the family in Canada is the death of the oldest surviving son, Thomas BUTSON, 11 December 1846. His stone is in the cairn at the Oshawa Pioneer Memorial Garden on Bond Street in Oshawa.
  • Solomon Butson also appeared as a resident of Whitby Township in Brown's Toronto City and Home District Directory 1846-7.
  • In 1852 ("1851" census) in Whitby Township, the Butson family appears on the same page as the Lampkin/Harper family, whose son Philip was later the father of the Margaret Ellen Harper who is buried at St. Paul's.
  • In 1861, Solomon and Jane Butson's son Nicholas Buston's children Richard Butson (8) and granddaughter Anna Maria Butson (5) are shown in the same house as Philip Harper's wife (Diana Adam) and daughter and other Adams family members. [Nicholas had just remarried (to Mary Malyon) 18 Jan 1861 at Reach, after the death of his first wife, Mary Ann Adams, sister of Diana.] This is such an important census grouping that I have saved the image, which you can see by clicking here.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:
    This is a bit complex, since there are multiple relationships.

  • Adams family relationships
    Two sons of Solomon & Jane Butson married two daughters of Richard Adams & Ann Dabb. All of the marrying children had been born at St. Blazey, Cornwall.
    1. On 30 July 1850, probably at St. Paul's, William Butson married Susan Adams. They remained together until he died at Sundridge 21 March 1900. She died in 1908.
    2. On 18 January 1851, at Columbus and thus probably at St. Paul's, Nicholas Keam Butson married Mary Ann Adams. She died in 1859 after the birth of their son David. Nicholas then remarried 18 January 1861 to Mary Malyon (The Malyon family appears on the next page in the 1851 census, after the Butson/Lampkin/Harper page.)
    In addition, a third daughter, Diana Adams, of Richard & Ann Adams, married about 1854 to Philip Harper, who was the half-brother of Elizabeth Harper, who had married Solomon & Jane Butson's son John Butson on 1 January 1849.

  • Beckett family relationships
    1. Solomon & Jane Butson's daughter Charity Keam Butson was the mother of the James Beckett whose stone is also in the cemetery.
    2. There is also a much more distant relationship. Charity's daughter Drucilla Beckett was the mother of Aaron Edward Thompson (7 Jun 1879 in Euphrasia Twp in Grey County). Aaron married Letitia Irwin 15 Dec 1909 (in Euphrasia Twp). She was the sister of Martha Jane Irwin who married Robert Gibson 23 Mar 1903 (Euphrasia). Robert was the son of James Gibson who was the half-brother of John Johnston, who married Emma Butson 24 May 1876 in Reach Twp. Emma was the daughter of Charity Keam Butson's brother Henry Butson.

  • Harper family relationships
    Solomon & Jane Butson's son John Butson married Elizabeth Harper 1 January 1849. Elizabeth was the half-sister of Philip Harper, whose daughter Margaret Ellen Harper is buried at St. Paul's. John & Elizabeth Butson had move to Staffa, Ontarion by 1856, where she died in 1862.

  • Lambkin family relationships (via Harper)
    There was a close connection between the Harper family (who are connected to the Butsons - see above) and the Lambkin family that I have not yet established. In addition, in the 1851/2 Census, the Lambkin family is on the same page as the Butson family.

  • Aaron Thompson family relationships
    Solomon & Jane Butson's daughter Charity Keam Butson's Beckett son and daughter married a daughter and son of the Thompson family. See the Beckett family for details. The Thompson family is highly cross-connected in multiple ways with many of the Columbus families.

    EDGERTON, Mary Ann (c 1841-1909), wife of William WARD - Concession 6 Lot 11 at death; EDGERTON family of Cartwright Township
    related to HARPER, LUKE, WARD

    Transcription: In Memory of MARY ANN EDGERTON Beloved Wife of WILLIAM WARD Died Nov. 3, 1909 Aged 84 Years
    NOTE: Her age at death is wrong. She was apparently born in 1839, since both the 1852 and 1861 censuses give ages that agree with 1839. Thus she was about 70 when she died.
    Family Information and Links:
  • William Ward was born 20 Jan 1833 in Chittlehampton, Devonshire to Hugh Ward and Catherine Castle. His brother Aaron, who will figure in the connections later, was born at Chittlehampton about 1838. William Ward did not come to Canada until 1869, according to the 1901 Census. Aaron Ward did not arrive until about 1873. Thus it is not the Ward family but the family of his wife, Mary Ann Edgerton, who were the longtime residents of the area, arriving from Ireland in 1845 according to Mary Ann's 1901 Census entry.
  • Robert Edgerton (born 1808 in Ireland) married in Ireland with Elizabeth Jane "Eliza" Leslie. From about 1831 to about 1843, they had at least six children (Elizabeth about 1831, John 1833, Sarah 1836, Mary Ann 1839, Jane 1841 and Matilda 1843), since the 1852 Canada Census shows six children born in Ireland. They had at least two more children born in Ontario (William 1851, Thomas 1854).
  • The Edgerton family settled in Cartwright Township in Durham County, just east of Columbus. I have not been able to locate the concession and lot for the family in Cartwright.
  • In December 1870 (according to the 1871 Census of East Whitby Township), Mary Ann Edgerton married the recently-arrived William Ward.
  • Mary Ann's 1909 death record shows her residing on Concession 6 Lot 11, which is just east of Columbus. The 1877 Ontario County Atlas shows that entire lot owned by J. Staback. So I do not yet know if William Ward eventually purchased part or all of the lot nor when they began residence on the lot.
  • William and Mary Ann (Edgerton) Ward had at least three children: Mary Jane (4 Jan 1872), William (about 1874), Levi (about - married Edith Taylor of Reach 1902). In the 1901 Census, William's brother Aaron's oldest son William Henry Ward's daughter Pearl is identified as William and Mary Ann's daughter. In that Census, all of the children of William Henry and Elizabeth (Collins) Ward are living with relatives (the other three known surviving children were with their grandmother Mary (Congram) Ward, widow of Aaron). William Henry Ward had died 26 Nov 1897 living on Concession 3 Lot 8. (I do not know if Elizabeth (Collins) Ward had died or had remarried.) It is unknown if Pearl was raised as the daughter of William and Mary Ann (Edgerton) Ward, but if she came to them as an infant, that is possible.
  • Mary Ann (Edgerton) Ward died residing at Concession 6 Lot 11 on 3 Nov 1909. And she was buried at St. Paul's, although the death record form of that time does not include burial information.
  • William Ward died residing on Concession 6 Lot 10 on 21 Jan 1911. The death record form of that time does not include bural information. The informant was his son William L. Ward residing at Columbus. He gave no given name for his father's father nor for his mother but did state that the elder William Ward's mother's maiden name was Castle. The doctor was the same Dr. Jonathan J. Moore of Brooklin who had treated Mary Ann at her death.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:
  • The Edgertons were from Cartwright Township in Durham County. And while at least one of Mary Ann's sisters married while living in East Whitby Township (Matilda married Frederick John Culyer 11 Sep 1868 at Whitby), none of the many brothers and sisters of Mary Ann Edgerton have connections to Columbus families that I have found.
  • It seems likely that William Ward came specifically to the Columbus area most likely because he had relatives already living there. But I have not been able to establish who those earlier Columbus relatives were.
  • William Ward does not appear to have been a land owner, at least before 1878. Concession 6 Lot 10, where he died, did show in the 1852 Census as being where Richard HARPER, Henry BIRK, John SALMON, and William POWAR farmed. And Concession 6 Lot 11 where Mary Ann died shows in 1852 as being where William POWAR and Richard RUNDLE farmed. So there is a possibility of a relationship with one of these.
  • William Ward's brother Aaron's son Samuel did marry into old Columbus connections. He married 20 Dec 1899 at Oshawa with Elizabeth Jane "Eliza" Luke, daughter of James Albert Luke and Elizabeth Hannah/Anna Harper. Both the Luke and Harper families were Columbus families, and in the 1901 Census, Samuel and Elizabeth (Luke) Ward were living in "Columbus Village", with her brother Frank A. Luke living with them.

    Transcription: In Memory of MARGARET ELLEN Daughter of Philip & Dianna HARPER who died Oct. 5, 1857 AE 14 mos & 19 ds
    Family Information and Links:
  • In 1852 ("1851" census) in Whitby Township (on the same page as the family of Solomon Butson, who is buried at St. Paul's), Philip Harper appears as a 16 year old, born in Ontario. He is the oldest of a mixed group of Lampkin and Harper children, following Stephen Lampkin (age 33, born England) and Nancy Lampkin (30, England), who appear immediately before Philip. The religion for Stephen and Nancy and all ten children is shown as "Christians" (presumably Bible Christian).
  • In 1861, "Diana" (27) is shown with daugher Margaret A. Harper (1), listed with Richard Butson (8) and Anna Maria Butson (5). It is not certain that this Diana was the mother of Margaret Ellen, but it appears that she is the same and that the child Margaret is the same as the Mary (11) in the 1871 census. The family appears to have resided in Cartwright Township in Durham County in 1861, so that Dianna must have been visiting her family back in East Whitby Township when the census taker came around there. This is such an important census grouping that I have saved the image, which you can see by clicking here.
  • In 1871, Philip (age 36, occupation: thresher) and "Dinnah" (37) lived in East Whitby Township with their children Elizabeth (16), John (12), Mary (11), Richard (9), Allen (5) and Philip (2). John Lambkin (26, occupation: laborer) was also living in their house. All were born in Ontario and were Church of England, except for John Lambkin who was Bible Christian.
  • In 1881, Philip (45) and Dianna (46) are shown in East Whitby Township with their children Mary (19), Richard (18), Margaret Ellen (14 - thus born immediately after the Margaret Ellen buried at St. Paul's in 1857), Philip, Jr. (11), Evilina (9) and Frank (7). They are all listed as Church of England.
  • In 1891, Philip (56) and Diana (58) are shown in East Whitby township with their children May Minnie (30), Philip (22), Evilina (19) and T. J. Frank (17). They are, for the first time in the census, all listed as Methodist.
  • In 1901, Philip (66, born 10 OCt 1834) and Dianna (67, born 10 Feb 1834) are shown in East Whitby township with only a servant in the house. They are both listed as Methodist. This census page also includes McLean and Hodgson families who are probably related to the people with those names who are buried at St. Paul's.
  • On July 30, 1906, Philip (71) died, with his residence given as Lot 2 Columbus. He was then a Methodist.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:
    This is a bit complex, since there are multiple relationships.

  • Adams family relationships
    Philip Harper's wife was Diana Adams.

  • Butson family relationships
    Two of Diana Adams Harper's sisters married sons of Solomon & Jane Butson.
    1. On 30 July 1850, probably at St. Paul's, William Butson married Susan Adams. They remained together until he died at Sundridge 21 March 1900. She died in 1908.
    2. On 18 January 1851, at Columbus and thus probably at St. Paul's, Nicholas Keam Butson married Mary Ann Adams. She died in 1859 after the birth of their son David. Nicholas then remarried 18 January 1861 to Mary Malyon (The Malyon family appears on the next page in the 1851 census, after the Butson/Lampkin/Harper page.)

  • Lambkin/Lampkin family relationships
    I have not figured out just what the relationship was, but it was apparently very close. In the 1852 census, the Harper and Lampkin children are intermixed in the same family. And in the 1871 census, John Lambkin is a member of Philip Harper's household.

  • Luke family relationships
    Philip and Diana Harper's daughter Elizabeth Hannah/Anna Harper's married James Albert Luke 9 Jan 1873.

  • Aaron Thompson family relationships
    John Lambkin (see Lambkin connection above) married Ellen Thompson. The Thompson family is highly cross-connected with many of the Columbus families.

  • Ward family relationships
    Philip and Diana Harper's daughter Elizabeth Hannah/Anna Harper's daughter Elizabeth Jane Luke married Samuel George Ward. See the Mary Ann Edgerton Ward grave stone for more information.

    Family Information and Links:
  • The Whitby Public Library gives this biographical information (and has additional photos): "John Dundas Howden was born in Whitby Township (East Whitby after 1857) on January 27, 1841. For many years he was a farmer, specializing in the breeding of Shorthorn Cattle and Clydesdale Horses. He was president of the Ontario County Agricultural Society and a warden at St. John's Anglican Church, Port Whitby for many years. From 1885 to 1924 he was Postmaster of Whitby, and moved to a farm on Dundas Street East where the Georgian Courts apartments are now. He died at the home of his son-in-law, Dr. John Moore, in Brooklin, on August 25, 1927, and is buried at St. Paul's Anglican Cemetery, Columbus."
  • The 1877 Historical Atlas of Ontario County shows him owning four pieces of land, totaling 352 acres. The land was located on either side of the 7-8 Concession Road, in lots 15 and 16 of both concessions. These lots can be seen by clicking on the map at the top of this Columbus St. Paul's Anglican Cemetery page.
  • I found this readily available information, and I wanted to make it publicly available. But I still need to do the full research on this family to see how they relate to the other families.

    Family Information and Links:
  • In 1864, 23-year-old David Magee came to Canada from County Fermanagh, Ireland. He first appears in the 1871 Census, where he is Church of England. He must have married in Canada, since his wife Elizabeth "Eliza" (surname not yet known) was born in Ontario, according to the census. Their marriage was probably about 1866, since their first child (William A. Magee) was born about 1867.
  • 26 Oct 1879, David & Eliza Magee's fifth son Frederick Arthur Magee was born in East Whitby Township. The couple had two more known children after that, the last being Walter Magee, born 20 Oct 1884 in East Whitby Township. Eliza Magee died sometime betweeh 4 April 1891 (the census date) and 21 June 1893, the day on which the widowed David remarried at Toronto to Mary Collins, the widow McGleim. In the 1901 Census, Frederick and Walter Magee are the only ones left with their parents. In the 1911 Census, David and Mary Magee are shown on Concession 3 Lot 10.
  • On 8 June 1910, Frederick Magee married Ellen Jane Beckett (see the Becketts above for her parents James & Mary Beckett) at Oshawa. They appear in the 1911 census on Concession 4 Lot 12, with their four-month-old daughter Beatrice Beckett (born January 1911).
  • Nothing is known of any other children after Beatrice Beckett until the birth 27 Sep 1923 of Clarence A. Beckett. His death certificate states that he was born at Columbus. Note that the grave stone is in error on his birthdate, since it states that he was born in 1920. Click here to see the page with his death report, which gives his birthdate.
  • On 9 July 1928, Ellen (Beckett) Magee died at Oshawa Hospital, after undergoing a caeserian section. I do not know if the baby was delivered alive or not. Click here to see the page with Ellen's death report.
  • Also about 1928, Clarence A. Magee developed chronic otitis media, which led four years later to his death 4 June 1932. Note that the grave stone is in error on his date of death. Click here to see the page with his death report. At the time of the death of Clarence, his father Frederick Magee was the informant and was on Concession 7 Lot 21.
  • Other than the 1958 date on the grave stone, I have not been able to find any information on the death of Frederick Arthur Magee. The stone is relatively modern and was apparently erected after his death.
  • Relationships to Other Columbus Families:

  • Butson family relationships
    Charity Keam Butson was the mother of James Beckett, who was the father of Ellen (Beckett) Magee.

  • Hallowell family relationships
    Mary (Hallowell) Beckett was the mother of Ellen (Beckett) Magee.

    I have not yet researched whether the Magee family had any further connections to the local families, through Frederick's six brothers.

  • THOMPSON
    There are two distinct Thompson families: Scots-Irish John & Anne (Wiley) Thompson and Lincolnshire, England Aaron & Mary Ann (Thompson) Thompson. Both spent many decades in Darlington Township, While it is John & Anne and their son William who have stones at St. Paul's, their family has far more connection with Little Britain in Mariposa Township of Victoria County than with the other Columbus area families. And while Aaron & Mary Ann do not have a stone at St. Paul's, their family is heavily cross-connected with many of the other St. Paul's families.
    I am going to have to do these two families gradually, since there is a massive amount of information to edit down into these entries. So the two THOMPSON sections will gradually be filled in as I have the time.

    THOMPSON, Aaron and Mary Ann (born THOMPSON) - From Lincolnshire, England - Darlington Township, Durham County - Lot and Concession not yet identified
    related to BECKETT, BURR, BUTSON, HARPER, LAMBKIN/LAMPKIN

    This family had no stones at St. Paul's but is highly cross-connected with many St. Paul's families.

    Transcription: JOHN THOMPSON Died July 12th 1903, Aged 83 Years. - ANNE WILEY, His Wife Died Nov. 19th 1910, Aged 84 Years. - WILLIAM THOMPSON, Died Apr. 10th 1900, Aged 46 Years.
    NOTE: As with many of the modern stones for old burials, there are errors on the stone. John Thompson's death record shows that he died 11 July and not 12 July. His age on the earliest record (1851/2 census) gives a birth about 1826/7 and thus an age at death of about 77 and not 83. While Anne's date of death is correct, her age in the earliest record (1851/2 census) gives a birth year of 1830/1 and thus an age at death of about 80 and not 84.
    Family Information and Links:
  • John Thompson and Anne Wiley were both born in Northern Ireland of Scot-Irish ancestry. I found no information on John's family in Ireland. Anne's records show that she was born in Belfast and that her father was Archibald Wiley. Two things make their immigration difficult to establish. One is that they were married prior to the first census (1851/2). The other is that John & Anne (and most of their twelve children) have thus far been unfindable in the 1901 census, and both of them were dead before the 1911 census. (Those are the two census that asked when they arrived in Canada.)
  • In the 1851/2 census, the young couple and their 1-year-old daughter Isabella were living in the east half of Whitby Township. The census shows that Isabella was born during the year 1851. They were the only family occupying a 1-story shanty.
  • By the 1861 census, they had made the move to Darlington Township, in the northwest section of the township, thus the section that was closest to Columbus. They now had five children: Isabella (10), William (8), Anne (5), Catherine (4), and Margaret J. (2). William's death record shows that he was born in Darlington Township. If that is correct, then the move happened by 1853 - just a year after the prior census.
