"I Hear Those Gentle Voices Calling..."

This title is from Stephen Foster's "Old Black Joe", written c. 1860. This file contains only our ancestors in Canada. I gratefully acknowledge the help of dozens of cooperative cousins, some mentioned in my sources, in re-discovering this information. I have some info on other descendants of these ancestors. The amount I have is summarized briefly in the expression "(They had ? children)" found at the end of the marriage information line. If it might be useful to you, please contact me to compare notes.
