I am searching for the parents of Rebecca Martin on the 1881
census of Galt age 11 born 1870 living with Magdalena Martin
and some of Magdalenas children, I assumed she was a Grandaughter . Later I have reason to believe she moved to
Leamington where she died. Would there be a birth reg, She died in 1956 in Leamington ont if she is the same one;
Would her death Reg name her parents Where would I find one ?? She is no where on the 1871 census. Any info welcome ??

Isaac Martin d. 1879 leaving his wife Magdalena head of household for 1881 census.

Look at their daughter Barbara: she married Aaron Bear in 1859; he d. 1870; youngest daughter is Rebecca.

Thanks again I did not realize that Rebecca would become a
Martin rather than Baer. I would like to see Barbara Baer on the 1881 census and I cannot seem to find her.

Keep in mind that adoption was not legislated in Ontario until 1921. As such children were often placed with friends or relatives and their names were simply changed.

Aaron Bear died in 1870 leaving a widow and four young children. There seems to be confusion between another Aaron Bear and another Barbara Martin. According to the Eby book, they lived in Doon. If they were farmers, Barbara possibly lost the farm when Aaron died (or would have at least had difficulty maintaining it). Aaron is buried in Hagey Cemetery (A-12-1).

Thank you so much, I believe you solved the mystery , It appears that she moved to Leamington Ontario where her

Thank you very much, I now believe that the mystery is solved, she went to Leamington, Ont where her Aunt Margaret
Martin Pulford lived, and her Uncle Phillip Martin and
worked for a Dr. and his wife who are buried in the
Martin plot in Mountview Cem Galt. She died there in 1956.
Now would her death certificate verify her parents or is it a great big waste of money ??? Thanks again so much.

Thanks for all of your time spent with my information.
I will go some different routes before I order the actual
death certificate since I now feel quite sure who her parents were.
