Surnames: Wright, James and Rozilla/Rosella ????
in your reply to my message, it has Dorion, Dorn, Doan and this is the real bafflement- Mitton on different childrens birth records... i have looked at the census thinking the family had to been there in 1861 ---but i cannot find Rosella/Rozilla at all.. my only option is, i think, to find the records for Greenwood cemetary in Ridgetown, ontario to see what they have on record... do you happen to know where i can find this out.i have even searched the newspapers at chatham, library.... there has to be something. And yes i have that brief marriage notice but i feel is incomplete. maybe Dorion was her Middle name??? Another option is to find church record --which church that was present in the 1868 era.. thanks so far for your help... i want to eventually trace her birth to NewYork state -- i think her family were immigrants..
