I am researching the ancestors to my husband Samuel Parks born in Ontario. Some of the names I have found so far in his ancestry are Hartin, Hartwick, Scott, Parks, Boomhower, Baker, Barefoot, King, Woodcock. The information that I have found about his great-great Hartin grandparents is:
Jehial Hartin b. September 1825 married Elsie Jane Parks b. August 1.1830. I have no idea who the parents were to Jehial Hartin or Elsie Jane Parks and am hoping that I might be able to find further information. I'm wondering if Jehial Hartin might possibly be related to Daniel Hartin b. September 13.1825 (possibly twins?) I believe Daniel married a Bradshaw?
Jehial and Elsie's daughter Eliza Hartin b. 1868 Camden township married William Nelson Boomhower b. abt 1852 in Kennebec, ON. They were married Dec.25.1886 in Kaladar, ON.
They had the following Boomhower children:
Oscar, George Wellington, Rosannah, Archibald Secord, Percy, Raymond, Harold, Manson Milo.
Jehial and Elsie's son James Hartin b. April 2.1857 married Minerva Ellen Scott b. April 25.1868. They were married November 1.1889 in Napanee, ON. James and Miverva had the following children:
Asa b. Feb.16.1891 (died 1982) (Married Lulu Woodcock)
Aggie b. July 18.1892
Jehial (Hial) b. Sep.29.1893
Catherine b. March 29.1895 (married Samuel Boomhower)
Daniel b. June 10.1896
Edna b. Oct 1903 (married Jim Lake)
Herman b. 1909 (never married)
Asa, Hial, Catherine and Samuel Boomhower are all buried in the Northbrook United Church cemetery. I have no information about the other children.
Parents to Miverva Scott were John Scott b. about 1820 and Mercy (Mary) Ann Parks b. about 1831. They had the following children:
1. James Wesley who married Cynthia Peterson
2.Agnes who married Luther Simons, Robert Selman, John C. Wood
3. Eliza Jane who married Paul Boomhower
4. Harriet who married Thomas Woodcock
5. Matilda (Mary Ann) who married David Mallroy
6. Elizabeth Ann who married Abraham Clark
7. Miverva who married James Hartin
No further information is known about John Scott.
I'm wondering if Elsie Jane Parks and Mercy Ann Parks were related in any way (possibly sisters since they were so close in age and from the same area?).
If anyone has any information about these families that you can share with me, I'd be very happy to hear from you. Thank you.
