Personal History

THE FOLLOWING MAY BE TOTALLY INCORRECT - NEED TO CONFIRM A LINK TO HER PARENTS - MARCH 20, 2016

1851 - Birth: Elisabeth Irwin was born in Ireland on April 15, 1851. Source is 1901 Census of Canada. 1871 and 1881 census infer she was born in 1849. 1891 census infers she was born in 1847.

1852 - Immigration: Elisabeth Irwin abt 1 immigrated to Canada in 1852 (presumably with her family). Source is 1901 Census of Canada. NOTE: This immigration date is consistent with the date listed for Robert, Mary, Hugh and William Irwin.

1861 Census - Elisabeth Irwin - about 12 - WHERE IS SHE? Her siblings were living with the McCabe family.

1866 - Marriage: On December 17, 1866, Elizabeth Irwin (age?) married John Johnston (age?) in Huron County. NOTE: Could not find official record of this event - the info came from other trees in Ancestry.ca and they lacked source information so NEEDS TO BE CONFIRMED. NOTE: 1866 is missing from the available marriage data on Ancestry.ca

1871 - Census: Elisabeth Johnston 22, was living with her husband, John Johnston 34, Farmer, and their two children: M. Ann, 3, (incorrectly listed as born in Ireland) and Elisabeth (spelled Elizabeth) 9 months, (incorrectly listed as born in Ireland) in Turnberry Township, Huron County, Ontario. Both are Church of England. Source is 1871 Census of Canada.

1881 - Census: Elisabeth Johnston 32, was living with her husband John Johnston (spelled Johnson in LAC index) 47, Farmer, on the farm in Turnberry Township, Huron County, Ontario and their children: Mary Ann 13, Elisabeth 10, John 7, Jane 6, Margaret 4 and Sarah 2. All are Church of England. Source is 1881 Census of Canada.

1889 - Death of Husband: Elisabeth`s husband, John Johnston died in 1889 - NEED TO CONFIRM

1891 - Census: In 1891, Elisabeth Johnston 44, widowed, was living in a 1-1/2 storey wooden house in Turnberry Township, Huron County, Ontario with her children: Elisabeth 20, John 18, Jane 16, Sarah 12, Edward 10, Hugh 7 and Frances 3. Church of England. Source is 1891 Canada census.

1901 - Census: In 1901, Elisabeth Johnston 49, widowed, was living in the Town of Wingham, Huron County, Ontario with two of her children: Edward 20 and Frances 13. The census listed her as immigrating to Canada from Ireland in 1852 and was now widowed. Church of England. Source is 1901 Census of Canada.

1911 - CANNOT FIND HER IN 1911 CENSUS

1913 - Marriage of Child: On June 11, 1913, Elizabeth`s son, Edward Johnston 30, Fitter?, married Mary Alice Elliott 23, in the Village of Westmeath, Renfrew County Ontario. Edward lived in Coppercliff, Sudbury District. Source is Edward Johnston`s 1913 marriage registration (see Family Search for original document). NOTE: This is consistent with Elizabeth being in Sudbury District when she died.

1917 - Marriage of Child: On May 9, 1917, Elizabeth`s oldest son, John R. Johnston 42, widower, Foreman, married Violet Amelia Meadew 28, widow, at Sudbury, Ontario. Source is John`s 1917 marriage registration. (see Family Search for original document) NOTE: So several sons were in the Sudbury area and this is probably why she ended up there.

1921 - CANNOT FIND HER IN 1921 CENSUS - SHE IS NOT LIVING WITH HER SON, EDWARD AT 338 VICTORIA STREET, SUDBURY, Source is 1921 Census of Canada

1926 - Death and Burial: Elizabeth Johnston 84, died on April 21, 1926 at 338 Victoria St, Sudbury of senility. Edward Johnston (son) provided the following information on her death certificate: She had lived there for 3 years. She was 84 years old (infers that she was born in 1842 - however, Edward Johnston did not know when she was born - so this is probably incorrect). Source is her 1926 death registration. WHERE IS SHE BURIED?
