I am trying to find records on James Ervin Smith. According to family lore, he married Margaret Wiggins, date of marriage unknown. It was an arranged marriage and he was supposedly 24 years older than his wife, who was 16 at the time. So that would put the marriage around 1873. He owned a hotel in Listowel, was an Orangeman and the Grand Marshall in the July 12th parades. This is family lore and has yet to be proven. If anyone has any information on James Ervin Smith or where I can find records to search for him, I would appreciate it.
