Looking for my grandmother, GEORGINA SUTHERLAND, who was married in 1844 with residence listed as Ramsay Tsp.
I did find this on ancestry.ca but you probably have it. It seems a lot of folks are looking for Georgina– Georgina was b. 1824/1826 Almonte, Lanark Co, Ont, Can. she m. THOMAS OAKLEY, June 18, 1844, Bathurst District, Rev. Alexander Mann, Presbyterian Minister at Pakenham Twp, Lanark Co, Ont, Can.
Possible parents for Georgina (no proof) GEORGE SUTHERLAND b. 1783 Scotland and (only a possible for George’s wife) MATILDA UNK, b. 1788, Scotland. George emigrated to Canada in 1821 on the ship George Canning & settled on East Lot 11, Concession 05, Ramsay Twp. He arrived with his wife, three sons and four daughters. One of his daughters being CECILIA SUTHERLAND b. 1808 Scotland who married EDWARD NICHOLSON ( I have more info on this family). Arriving on the same ship was DAVID SUTHERLAND who settled on the adjoining farm to George.
An interesting note, Georgina’s daughter Anne Jane Oakley married Cecilia’s son Edward Nicholson.
Sutherland, Georgina born circa 1820 in Ramsay Township, Lanark County married Thomas Oakley in Ramsay Tsp. and moved to Victoria County in 1841- Lived in Lindsay, Ontario Victoria Township where Thomas had a shoemaking business.
