I'm doing research into the above George W.Benway b c 1838 d Feb 2, 1899 aged 61.
George W died in Kingston and lived at 96 (looks like Harris/Manor St.) Kingston Ont.
George was Methodist, married to a Hannah SINDEN and had the following children:-
Florence Binway 64/65
Francis A Binway Nov 20 1866
George Washington 27 Jan 1870
Jessie 7 Sept 1871 All Prince Edward
Walter Campbell 22 May 1875
Zebulun Sinden 16 July 1877
Annie Beatrice 19 Sept 1879
Giles 18 Sep 1882
Alexander b 26 Dec 1885
Violet Kathleen 4 Feb 1890.
Violet married Alexander TAIT 29 Dec 1911 Picton Ont Can
Jessie married Henry W HATFORD 27 Oct 1892 Picton Ont Can.
Florence married a George INSLEY.
George was on the 1850 Census in OSWEGO NY with his family, ie Parents Anthony and Paulina BENWAY. He seems to go back to Canada though and stay there.
I'm trying to find a definate connection between this above George BENWAY and the family in NY. I've tried to look for an obituary or other verification of his parents/siblings but so far have foud nothing. I've tried the 1842 Canadian Census for Anthony and Paulina but came up with nothing again. Any help would be very much appreciated. Kindest regards Dianna from Australia
