Frequently I respond to questions on Mailing Lists. I often spend a few hours researching for subscriber's ancestors. I thought it might be helpful to other descendants and researchers to see what I've found, so am posting bits of the original question, and my research into the family genealogy on Olive Tree Genealogy.

The question below on the Dodge and Sterberg families was asked on a popular mailing list. I took some time to research this family. I found some interesting facts about them but Christine, who asked the original question never responded to my findings. So here's hoping another descendant or two will find my research helpful.

QUESTION ASKED ON MAILING LIST JANUARY 2007

I amlooking for my grandparents (Arthur Forbes Bryce and MaryHawkins) born in Beckwith, Charlton Place about 1898.They married about 1918 in that area but I can not findthe marrage. (the rumor was they eloped) Their firstchild (my mother) was born there in 1920. They had threemore girls and a boy.

MY ANSWER

Do you mean Carlton (not Charlton) Place in Lanark County?The 1901 census for Beckwith, Lanark shows an Arthur F.Brice [sic] age 2, living with his grandmother

Arthur Brice (Bryce) was born in Quebec 3 Nov 1898 and is of Irish origin. See automatedgenealogy.com or use [an error occurred while processing this directive] to view these census pages.

Others in family:
  • Margaret Brice, widow, head b Apr 1840 (age 60) Ireland immigrated 1874
  • William Brice, son b July 1868, Ireland immigrated 1874
  • Edward Brice, son, b 14 Jun 1873 Ireland, cheesemaker , immigrated 1874.
  • Elen H Brice, , dau b 16 June 1877 Ontario
  • Cecil E Brice, , b Dec 1895 Ontario, G-son
  • Arthur F Brice, born Quebec 3 Nov 1898 , g-son
Margaret, the grandmother, died in Lot 11, Conc 8, BeckwithLanark 8 Nov 1917 (Death cert on Ancestry.com) Her father isgiven as Thomas Nesbitt of Ireland and Edward Bryce is theinformant. She was 80.

Now that you have a land location you can check for petitions and other papers. See Ontario Land Recordsfor helpwith various land records in Ontario

I'll bet that Thomas Brice born age 86 died 1 Feb 1899 inLanark is Margaret's husband. You could check Ancestry'sdeath records or the OVSR project to see. (Ok I was curious and checked for you. He's listed as living on Lot 11 Conc 8, same as Margaret)

The 1911 Ontario Census shows Arthur Bryce, born Nov 1898 Ontario withparents Thomas & Carolina E Bryce (Carleton Place Lanark).Thomas is born Jul 1869 in Ireland, Carolina is born Aug1870 in Ontario. There are siblings with them.

The source isDistrict: Lanark North District Number: 89 Sub- District:Carleton Place Sub-District Number: 24 Place ofHabitation: Park Ave Census Year: 1911 Page: 8 so you canfind it online at Ancestry or automated genealogy or NAC

You might want to look for Thomas & Carolina in the 1901 Ontariocensus too.

By the way the Lanark Co. Archives has the Bryce's cheese FactoryAccount Books which you might want to have a look at

Mary Hawkins

Is this your Mary in the 1901 census?District: Lanark (South/Sud) District Number:81 SubDistrict: Carleton Place (Town/Ville) SubDistrict Number: D-5 Family Number: 68 Page: 7

Mary Hawkins born 8 Dec 1900 Ontario daughter of William born 10 Jan1870 Ontario & Lizzie born 13 Jul 1877 Wales. (immigrated1883) It looks like William is a fireman.

William is listed as the son in law of Mary Rudworth [Rushworth?] bornIreland 8 Sept 1839, immigrated 1883

Looks like an interesting family because there is a daughter Katie born India 14 Feb 1876 (sister to Lizzie Iassume)

A Mrs. Mary Rushworth died in Carleton Place, Lanark 17 Oct1912, age 74, widow. The informant was William Hawkins ofCarleton Place. Looks like the right Mary - her parents aregiven as John McCormick and Catherine McLean

Here is the marriage of Wm and Lizzie, found on Ancestry.com
Elizabeth Rushworth, 22 d/o John Rushworth & Mary McCormick married William Hawkins 27 born Ramsay s/oWilliam Henry Hawkins & Caroline Heron Hawkins. MarriageDate: 2 Feb 1898 Marriage Place: Lanark
