thank you for the response to my Secord question.
I am making some progress and have come to the conclusion that Peter Secord s/o Daniel Secord and Catherine Mabie born
September 15,1726 ,twin to Rachel Secord is more likely the father of my Daniel Secord of the Grand River, born 1756, died 1832 in Brantford, Ontario.
Some Secord historians think it is John Secord s/o Daniel and Catherine but in John's will there is no mention of a son Daniel.
Daniel Secord of the Grand River married Elizabeth but I don't have her last name.There are land petitions for Daniel as he was with Brant's volunteers during the American Revolution,he received a 999 year lease from Joseph Brant,200 acres in Brant county as well as land in Oxford county. His son Daniel petioned for the land after his father died.Apparently the original deed burned in a house fire so Daniel Secord Jr as his enheritance re applied to the the Council of the Six Nations Indians and was successful in retaining the land.
I only have 4 names for Daniel Secord's children:
1]Margaret Secord born in New York, married Robert Ennis,1808 in Brant county, Ontario, no other information
2]Isaac Secord born 1779, New York died 1872 in Michigan. Isaac was named in his father's will as receiving only one pound for his disloyalty to his King
3]Daniel Secord born 1785 in Brant county, Ontario died January 11,1859,married Elizabeth Perrin, daughter of Captain Thomas Perrin,buried in Mt Pleasant cemetary, Brant county, Ontario
4]John Secord born December 17,1787,Brant county, Ontario died September 23,1869 in Walsingham twp, Norfolk county, Ontario, married in 1825,Brant county but no name for his wife. There were 2 other children according to the 1783 Niagara census but I have not been unable to find them.
I have a copy of Daniel Secord of the Grand river's will given to me by a descendant of the Secords.
Daniel Secord grandson of Daniel Secord of the Grand river was born March 23,1808 in Mt Pleasant, Brant county,Ontario ,married Almira Emma Peet ,March 15,1831 in Oakland ,Brant county, Ontario,died November 8,1900 in Mt Pleasant.
This Daniel I don't have too much information on but I should be able to find some through the Ontario census records , the Ontario birth records and the Ontario death records.
Mary Ann Secord and Peter Holly Edy are buried in the Jerseyville cemetary ,Ancaster twp, Ontario
Emma Loamma Edy married to Maurice Sharp is my great grandmother and they are buried at St Andrew's Presbyterian church yard in Ancaster Ontario.
If you can fill in any of these blanks it would be great. Thanks again Pat
