Subject: [ONTARIO] Thomas Luxton + Sarah Thornthwaite
Date: Tue, 10 Jul 2007 01:34:43 -0400
A member of the LDS church contributed the following to the IGI:
Thomas LUXTON was married on 01-Jan-1857 to Sarah THORNTHWAITE
She was b 28 May 1839 in Pugwater, Nova Scotia & d 22 Jul 1917
If this is correct, then Thomas & Sarah were probably married in Elgin Co., Ontario.
I'm trying to find proof that Sarah was, in fact, a Thornthwaite - does anyone have any suggestions?
Marriage registrations ususally give the bride's maiden name, but Sarah's 1857 marriage was before Ontario kept marriage registrations.
Birth registrations sometimes give the maiden name of the mother:
Thomas & Sarah had 3 children born in Ontario 1858, 1860 and 1863; however, I cannot find birth registrations because they were born before Ontario births were registered.
