I am looking for information on the family and origin of Elijah Frail and his wife, Mary. They appear in the 1871 Census living in the Scott's Bay polling district with three children:
William b. abt 1856 (d. 11 Oct 1873 in Scott's Bay of inflammation)
Sylvanus b. abt 1858
Emeline b. abt 1862
In the 1881 Census Elijah and Mary appear along with a Sophia Golden, age 22 (b. abt 1859) and her daughter, Mary J., age 1 year (b. abt 1880)
Census age dates for Elijah and Mary vary with Elijah being 48 in 1871 and 61 in 1881. Likewise, Mary is 34 in 1871 and 40 in 1881. From these, one can assume Elijah was b. in the 1820s and Mary in the 1830s. Elijah was listed as a farmer in 1871 and 1881.
There were other Frail families living on the Scott's Bay Rd. and I am just trying to see the connection between them.
