I don't know how to revise the old page so I will just update what I had before.
From my trip to Ontario in July , I found the grave sites of my great great grandmother Mary Ann Secord born May 29,1847, died September 1,1925 and her husband Peter Holly Edy born February 1,1846,died December 29,1931 in Jerseyville cemetary,Ancaster twp,Wentworth county, Ontario. I also found a picture of them in my mother's photo album.
Next I found the grave sites of my gr gr gr grandfather Daniel Secord born March 23,1808 died November 8,1900 father of Mary Ann Secord in the Mt Pleasant cemetary, Brant county, Ontario.His wife Almira Peet born February 11,1813 ,died August 22,1883 was also buried there.
In the same cemetary I found the gravesites of my gr gr gr gr grandfather Daniel Secord born 1785,died June 11,1859 ,father of the previous Daniel Secord along with his wife Elizabeth Perrin born 1789 died July 27,1857. Next to them were the parents of Elizabeth Perrin,Captain Thomas Perrin and his wife Elizabeth.
The next generation back would be my gr gr gr gr gr grandfather Daniel Secord born 1759 in Niagara,Ontario and died in Brantford Ontario. He is listed in the Niagara Census of 1783 and fought with Brant's volunteers and is listed as having 5 children. He was also with the Indian department .He is documented in the Sons and Daughters of American Loyalists as being Daniel Secord of the Grand River. I didn't get a chance to go to Brantford but will look in the Deaths of Ontario to see if I can find where he is buried.
There are many Secords buried in St David ,Ontario some are David Secord, Stephen Secord ,their wives and families.
Also the Warner burying grounds near Niagara Falls has Solomon Secord and his wife Hannah De Forest. This burying grounds is in danger of being moved when they do the next expansion of the Queen Elizabeth highway.
I didn't get a chance to go to Niagara on the lake but there are many members of the Secord family who settled there after the disbanding of Butler's Rangers, after the American Revolution.
Working from Ambroise Sicard born 1631 in Mornac ,France died in 1701. Apparently he arrived in New York with only his 5 children.No wife noted.He was a founding father of New Rochelle ,New York.
My line follows Daniel Sicard born Mornac France 1672,died 1749 in New Rochelle New York married Catherine Voertman
Next is Daniel's son Daniel Secord born 1698 in New Rochelle New York, died ? married Catherine Mabie. From here it gets less clear which son is the father of my Daniel Secord born 1759 in Niagara. According to some sources it is John Secord married to Phoebe Travis , other say it is Peter Secord. If any one has information that can clear up this family missing link it would be greatly appreciated. Pat
