Surnames: Swales/Simmons
Issac Swales was the father of my great grandmother. He came to Canada from Wales sometime in the early 1800's with a wife Mary Hodder. Several of his brothers also came to Canada James Swales and one other name unknown. Issac and Mary's daughter was born in Lobo County, Ontario, Canada. Where is this? Also Anna married Robert Allen Simmons in Carradoc, Canada. Have not located this either. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Lobo Township is in Middlesex County, near London, Ontario. Caradoc Township is also in Middlesex County.

What timeframe would your Isaac be having children. I did find one baptism in the Ontario Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Register that may be his:

Vol Pg# Dist./Co. Area Given-name Surname Father Mother Residence Birthplace Birthdate Bapt-date Bapt-place Minister
3 766 Middlesex Ekfrid Township L.Dora Ann H. Swales Isaac M. E. Ekfrid Ekfrid 1865-08-08 1869-08-09 Ekfrid Kennedy, Rev. Jas.

Isaac may have remarried because I believe this is him in the 1881 census, although it indicates he was born in England:

Household:

Name Marital Status Gender Ethnic Origin Age Birthplace Occupation Religion
Issaac SWALES M Male English 61 England Farmer Church of England
John SWALES Male English 18 O. <Ontario> Farmer S. Church of England
Elisibeth SWALES M Female English 40 England Church of England

My word of mouth information has Issac and Mary sailing to Canada in the early 1800's from Wales. Issac was born June 3,1819 and died 1899. Those names sure do match up wilth his children's names. What information I have is that Mary Hodder was about 21 years younger than he. Let's continue to talk about this. It might be something. Thanks.

Anna Elizabeth's date of birth is July 17, 1858. Issac was about 39 when she was born. I have no dates for the other children.

This is quite interesting. Sounds promising.

Holy! Did a quick lookup for Swales..not really looking at your post...you're MINE!!!!!
Or at least the odds are high.

What do you know about your Caradoc folks?

Isabella Campbell m. Robert Palmer Simmons, she was from Caradoc and it seems there were a number of other links there.

Approx what year was your Anna and Robert b. m. d.?

Wheeeeee I think he is our R.A. Simmons!!!!

Robert Allen (Allen Robert) was born March 2, 1852 and died on June 6, 1933 in E. Tawas, Mich. Anna Elizabeth was born July 17, 1858 in Lobo, Ontario and died on January 14, 1923 in E. Tawas, Michigan. They were married on November 1, 1875 in Caradoc. They had two or three children born before coming to Sinalac, Michigan. The first was Alfred b. 5/10/1879, Anna Elizabeth b: 11/2/1878 and possibly Aaron, but I have no birth date for him. They come to the USA in the early 1880's according to family history. The US census of 1910 shows that year of immigration was 1882, but the 1910 census shows immigration as 1879. Thanks for the note. I hope this links us. I have been trying for several months to get more information and most of those who know anything back that far are gone. My connection is that Robert Allen had a son named William Henry born in Sanilac,Michigan in a log cabin opn November 12, 1886. He married Lina Johanna Erickson (an immigrant from Finland. They had four children. Doris Marie, Inez Isabel (who died in 1918), Esther Evalyn, and William Henry.
Thanks for contacting me. This is exciting. Keep in touch.
