Looking for any information on my great grandfather's family. He was born in 1851 in Omemee, Ontario, Canada and died on July 19, 1928 at the age of 77. He is buried along with his wife Elizabeth Ball at the Little Lake Cemetery, Peterborough, Ontario. Records indicate he was remarried. He was only 62 when his wife Elizabeth died at age 84. Elizabeth Ball was born June 4, 1829, Emily Township, Peterborough, Ontario and died December 4, 1913. She had 3 sons and 3 daughters, names unknown. She died at 303 Levis St., Peterborough.

My grandmother was Emma Agnes Pogue (Dancey), born July 24, 1873. She died in 1960 at 87 years of age. Her father, Samuel Dancey would have been 22 years old at her birth. It is unknown if Elizabeth Ball was her mother? She would have been 44 years old at the time. I believe Samuel Dancey's first wife may have been my Grandmother's true mother and her name is unknown?

Grandma Pogue was married to my grandfather Charles Joseph Pogue, 1871-1960, who was well known in harness racing circles in Ontario and New York State. He died at 89 years of age and drove his last race at the age of 87. They had two daughters, Muriel and Eileen. Eileen was my mother. She married my Dad, Gavin Rennie Cowper in 1925 or so and they are both now passed away.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
