Margaret Stinson, my G G Grandmother was born about 1834 in Ireland. She married James Mills on 21 Feb 1851 in St Phillips Anglican Church, Etobicoke, York Co., Ontario, Canada.
Margaret is show on the 1851 Canada census living with her husbands family in Etobicoke. By the next census in 1861 they had moved to Melancthon Township in Grey County. Note that Melancthon, later became part of Dufferin Co.
They were blessed with 13 children, whom I will share more about in another post.
Margaret died 17 Sept 1907 in Melancthon twp.
While my search for Margaret's parents is just beginning her marriage record states that she was from Etobicoke. The 1851 census shows only 3 Stinson families living there at that time.
James Stinson, cooper, born Toronto, English Church, 22 on next bday.
