I am reposting this topic hoping for " CONFIRMATION THAT THESE PEOPLE
ARE MY TRUE WILLIAM & MARY!!!!!!!!!!!! "

William Dodman b. 1821 Snettisham, Norfolk, Eng., son of Nicholas 1783,
married to Mary Pilgrim.

The information I have is that William was married to Mary A Orbine Decaw, b. 1822 ( est ) Brixton, London, Eng. Their children were... 1. William
Henry b. 1841 Oxford Twp., Kent, Eng. 2. Ann Maria b. 1843 Finsbury, St.
Luke, Eng. 3. Elizabeth b. 1847 Oxford County, Blenheim District, On., Canada. 4. Thomas b. 1849 On., Canada. 5. John ( James ) b. 1856
Thamesville, On. 6. Edward b. 1858 Thamesville, On. 7. Martha Jane b. 1860 Thamesville, On. 8. Henry b. 1861 Thamesville, On. 9. Richard b. 1863 Thamesville, On. 10. Robert b. 1866 Thamesville, On.

I would like confirmation that this is my William & Mary I have been researching so hard for & that their 1st , 2, born William Henry & Ann Maria were born in Eng.

Thank You Very Much For Taking Time With This Post!!!!!!!!!!!

Yours Truly
Jeff:D :2fun:

Eh Barbara: No!!!!!!!!! What you have found is the Family of " Thomas Dodman & Mary Laws!!!!!!!!!!! "

I am looking in the Family of Nicholas Dodman 1783 d. 1832, Snettisham, Norfolk Eng. Nicholas was married 30th Nov 1815 to Mary Pilgrim 1783, Buckenham, Attleborough, Norfolk, Eng.

Their children were & I hope I am right... 1. Mary Ann b. 1814 - d. 1891, Tichwell, Toxteth Park ( I have confirmation on her ), 2. * William b. 1821
d. On., Canada, 3. John b. 5 Aug 1825 - d. On., Canada, 4. Avis b. 6 Jan 1828 - d. On., Canada ( I have confirmation on her ), 5. Elizabeth b.17 Oct - d. On., Canada.

It is this William I am interested in finding out, if he was married to Mary A Orbine Decaw, in Eng. & if their 1st, 2, children William Henry & Ann Maria ( Mary Ann ), were born in Eng.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank You For Your Reply Barbara!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it is possible to confirm my William " 1821 ", I would be deeply " IN YOUR DEBT!!!!!! "

Yours Truly
Jeff :D :2fun:

Hi Jeff

How you doing?

I know you've had a few ups and downs with William, I wonder if you have a DOB and DOD for William that can be validated as yours?

I was going to look back at previous threads, but there have been a few changes recently.

Re: William Dodman & Mary Orbine/Completed

I have recently found out Mary A Orbine Decaw does not " Exist " in Eng. at this time period. I got this lead from Mundia.com & thought I would, give it a try. The owner of this family tree on Mundia has all the " INFORMATION
WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! "

So I am back to square 1 " WHOM DID WILLIAM DODMAN 1821 MARRY,
MARY ANN ? " Born Oxford County, Blenheim District, Ontario, From 1821
- 1826 ( est ). They married 12 Feb 1841, Brantford, Brant County, On.

Yours Truly
Jeff :'( :rolleyes:

Eh Geoff good to hear from you again!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, Geoff, if you can search FreeReg U.K. William is validated b. 1821, son of Nicholas Dodman 1783 & Mary Pilgrim 1783. William's siblings are also validated on the same page.

I have a copy with all the validations I am talking about, Geoff!!!!!!!!!!

Yours Truly
Jeff :D :2fun:

Just one more awkward question, how can you be sure that your William is the one whose father is Nicholas? There are at least 4 other possibilities, including one who married a Mary in 1839.

Geoff

Edit: Assuming that is your William in the 1851 census, New Brunswick & Nova Scotia (Blenheim), the eldest child, Wm H is 11y next birthday, which gives a birth year of 1840-1. Mary (wife) was b. abt. 1823-4 in Cranbro, Canada West. This is the time frame we need to look at, 1840-41, to either prove or disprove it.

Eh Geoff: Yes this John Dodman is William's bro!!!!!!!!! Geoff I have traced my tree back to this family & they are my direct-line-of-lineage.
Actually John is my great-great grandfather & R.I.P. Mayhew Cemetery,
Thamesville, Kent County, On. John was married to Mary Jane McKay, Scottish Ethnic, Canadian born. John died 1907, Geoff.

Geoff I have a line-of-lineage, that I am interested in. It starts in " France. "

Daniel Giraud b, 1664 Poiters, Vienne, Poitou - Charentes, France - d. 10
Aug 1757 New Rochelle, Westchester, N.Y. Daniel's wife was Jeanne Lamerraine b. 1667
Poiters, Vienne, Poitou - Charentes, France - d. 1753 New Rochelle, Westchester, N.Y.

Their son Benjamin Giraud Gerow b. 1707 New Rochelle, N.Y. - d. 1797
Tappan, Rockland, N.Y. Was married to Annetje Anna Kayper b. 29 Jun 1698
Ashsimus ( Jersey City ), Bergen, East Jersey. They married 29 Jan 1726 New Rochelle, N.Y.

Their son Daniel Gerow b. 15 Nov 1730 New Rochelle, was married to Elizabeth ( Maria Elizabetha ) House ( Haus ) b. 22 Mar 1731 N.Y. They married 10 Oct 1751 N.Y.

Their daughter Annatjie Gerow b. 17 Mar 1755 N.Y. Married William DeGrauw ( DeGraw ) b. 1751 N.Y. They married 1776 Tappan, N.Y.

Their son * Daniel DeGrauw ( DeGraw ) b. 1789 - d. 2 Aug 1877 married
to Maria ( Mary ) Watson b. 1788 - d. 1868. They married 12 Dec 1809 New Jersey. Their children were... 1. Hannah b. 10 May 1811 - d. 18 Feb 1834 &
was married. 2. Peter b. 1814. 3. * Elizabeth b. 1822. 4. Margaret b. 1825.
5. * Ann b. 1826. 6. * Mary b. 1828

My points Geoff are Mary Ann wife of William Dodman 1821 is " FRENCH ETHNIC & I HAVE MADE THAT CONNECTION !!!!!!!! " Birthdates for Mary Ann coincide with Elizabeth & Ann in this lineage, maybe even Mary. I have
found out that an 1851 U.S. census gives, " NO CLUE WHAT COUNTRY THESE CHILDREN WERE BORN IN!!!!!!!!!! "

Any Help Here Geoff, " WOULD BE DEEPLY APPRICIATED!!!!!!!!! "

Yours Truly
Jeff :D :2fun:
