GREER - Co Cavan > Ontario abt. 1825-1830

Posted: 19 Apr 2003 11:22PM GMT
Classification: Query
I have Greers that immigrated from County Cavan, Ireland to the Lindsay Ontario, Canada area between 1823-1826. First recorded birth in Ontario is John (what else??) Greer b. 1830 in Lindsay Ontario - married Mary Ellen Sawyer. Children: Robert, Maria Susanne, Fred, James, George, Adelbert and another Robert.

This lineage spread around Peterborough, Victoria Co. and some moved into Gladwin MI.

Any connnections?

Hi, well it's only taken 2 years to get an answer to my original post - who says I'm not patient???

My John Greer was born in Lindsay, Ontario. His daughter Maria Susanne Greer b. Mar. 12, 1870 married Cyrus Koontz in Gladwin and that's the connection. My husband's grandma was a Koontz. I'm in the process of updating my website and will send you the link when I'm done so you can see what I have and we can compare. I was not sure of the parents of John Greer, so I'm glad you have records to prove that Robert and Matilda were his - I do have information that they came from Cavan, Ireland. Do you have John's siblings as follows:
i. SUSAN GREER, m. ? MCNEES.
ii. JOHN GREER, b. 1830, Lindsay, Ontario, Canada.
iii. WILLIAM GREER, b. April 10, 1837, Cavan, Cavan Twp., Peterborough Co., Ontario, Canada; d. April 23, 1923, Gladwin Co., MI. Buried Ridge Cemetery, Gladwin, MI.
iv. DAWSON GREER, b. June 01, 1842, Victoria Co.,Ontario, Canada; d. July 09, 1916, Gladwin Co., MI. Buried at Ridge Cemetery

This message may have given me the clue I need. John Greer is my great, great grandfather. I know is father's name is Robert Greer and that Robert married to Matilda Henderson and that Robert was from Ireland. (Matilda is from England.) "Caven" may be the clue I need to learn more about Robert and Matilda.

Do you know any more about them?

I believe that Robert John Greer b1805 immigrated btw 1823-1826 That is about all the new information that I have found so far.
The only Rich that I have in my tree is my husband, you may be a missing branch on my tree, so to speak. John Robert Greer was my husband's Great Grandfather
James being his grandfather
His line being: Robert John - John Robert - James - Melvin - Richard William Greer. Can me tell your line?

Sorry I didn't have more info on Robert and Matilda. I don't believe they left Canada.

Thank you for your response. I appreciate any input regarding Robert John Greer (b1805 - Ireland).

Starting with Robert John Greer (b1805) my line runs - -

Robert John (b1805) - John Robert (b1830) - Robert John (b1865)- Earl (b1892) - Raymond D (b1921) - Richard Ray (me - b1952). My records indicate that the second Robert John had a brother named James. Therefore, John Robert was my Great, Great Grandfather and your husband's Great Grandfather. I think that makes your husband and me 4th cousins.

As an FYI, my great grandfather, Robert John, died at age 36. My Grandfather, Earl, was only 9 years old but he was the oldest boy in the family. He quit school and "stepped up" to take over the family farm and keep the family together. His story is very impressive. If asked, I could tell you a lot more about my Grandfather, Earl Greer.

Also - Earl Greer (My Grandfather) had a younger brother named Lee and several other siblings. I mention Lee because Lee's son, Robert, was the father of daughter, Debbie. Debbie Greer married and became Debbie Stabenow who is now a U.S. Senator from Michigan.

The bottom line - your husband is a 4th cousin of an U.S. Senator.

I know Debbie quite well. She really is a great person.

I'm curious - where do you and your husband live? I and my family are, essentially, a Michigan family. However, due to my career we now live in Iowa where I recently retired.

Best wishes.

Hi Rich,
It's been a long time since I've written anything out here...not much action lately! However, did Melinda point you to my website where I have the Greer lineage as contributed and documented by many helpful people? I have Earl, Lee and other siblings and I'd love to have some history to "fill it in" if you would like to share. It is my husband's lineage, and we used to live in Michigan too until we permanently moved away in 1975. We are now in AZ. There are still some Greer/White descendants in Saginaw. Here's the link:

Janet -

I have seen your website and I am very impressed. Thank you for all the hard work you did on that.

I can offer some corrections and fill-in, starting with Earl Greer (1892) who is my grandfather. Earl and Laura had 3 children that survived childbirth and a 4th, Ruth Jean, who died during childbirth.

The oldest was Robert Eldon (1916 - 1999). Most people do not know his first name was Robert because he always went by his middle name, Eldon. Eldon married Margaret Baldwin in 1953. Margaret died during childbirth with their first child, Mary Margaret, in 1954. The child also died. Very sad. Eldon never re-married.

The second oldest is Bernice Marie (1918). Bernice married Arnold Lewis that they had 3 sons: Wesley (1948 - 1981), Luther (1950), and Wilson (1955). Bernice and Arnold are both still alive but they are divorced. Wesley died a few years after returning from Vietnam as a direct consequence of his service in Vietnam. Luther married Susan (I don't recall her maiden name). Luther and Susan have 2 children: Catherine (1986) and Kevin (1990). Wilson has not married or had any children.

The third child of Earl and Laura is my father, Raymond D (1921). Dad has a middle initial but no middle name. Dad married Ila Mae Mann on July 21, 1950. They have 4 children: Richard Ray (me - 1952), Linda Mae (1953), Sheryl Kay (1958) and Rhonda Fay (1963).

I married Nancy Lou Shope on August 21, 1971. We have two sons: Chadwick Earl (1973) and Matthew Eric (1977). Neither son is married and we have no grandchildren.

Linda married Charles Wesley Curson in Sept of 1972. They have 2 children: Benjamin Charles (1974) and Deborah Lynn (1978). Ben married Kimberly Rourke and they have 2 children: Audry (2000) and Wesley (2003). Deborah married Paul Vieira. They have no children (yet).

Sheryl is married to Vincent Giglia. They have no children.

Rhonda is married to Dan Polk. They have 3 children: Jessica (1985), Tonya (1987) and Dylan (1995).

With respect to location - We are all originally from Brown City, Michigan (where Earl and Laura moved in 1926 to take over the farm that Laura had been raised on). Today, Nancy and I, Linda and Charles, and my parents are all in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Rhonda is in Los Vegas and Sheryl is in Oregon.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
