Because of the time frame I cannot confirm that the following is accurate as the date is prior to Provincial Registration in Ontario of 1869.
This info was found online at www.familysearch.org and maybe verified by attending a Family History Centre of the LDS in your area and viewing the microfilms or ordering same on inter-library loan.
John Serens - born 1785 in Ontario Canada, died 10 April 1856; wife Margaret born about 1789; Five children named:
> Walter B., b. abt 1821
> Elizabeth b. abt 1823
> Frederick b. abt 1825
> Mary b. abt 1827
> Margaret b. abt 1819 -m. Jacob Thatcher on 14 Sep 1837 and d. 26 Aug 1887
Dot - you might want to check www.rootsweb.com "World Connect" as there are entries for the John Serens & fam.
