R1. Elizabeth (Flewelling) Outhouse
  Elizabeth Flewelling b. 2NOV1729, d. ca. 1780?, m. NICHOLAS OUTHOUSE (bpt. Jamaica, Long Island, NY 25SEP1726, d. Charlotteville, Norfolk Co., ONT after MAY1802), s/o Symen Claessen and Antje Williamse (Van Westervelt) Uythuysen.
  Much of the information on the Outhouse family comes from Queen Perry's letters to Donald H. Jeffery, her lineage in, "Loyalist Lineages of Canada: 1783-1983", the lineages, in the same work, of David E. Johnson and Lt. Col. H. H. Minshall, and others. Also from David E. Johnson's, "The Johnson Generations", Reid's, "Loyalists of Ontario", notes with the Victoria Branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada and especially the notes of Mrs. N. E. Byrnes, of Lorain, Ohio passed on By David E. Johnson. While there is confusion and contradiction amongst these sources, I tend to rely on Mrs. Byrnes notes as the most advanced; but agree with David E. Johnson that it was Anna, not Sarah Anne, who married James Smith.
  Elizabeth Flewelling married Nicholas Outhouse, originally Claas Van Uythuysen, son of Simon and Antje (Willems) Uythuysen. He is likely descended from the Simon Van Uythuysen who came to New Amsterdam as a gunner on a West India Company freighter in 1641, and is later the captain of, "The Flower of Gelder", out of New Amsterdam. Nicholas was born, probably in Westchester Co., 25SEP1726, and died near the Long Point area in Charlotteville Twp., Norfolk Co., ONT ca. 1810. If Robert Flewelling was born ca. 1712, and since Nicholas and Elizabeth's eldest child was born ca. 1748, then Elizabeth was probably born ca. 1730. Since their youngest child was born ca. 1774, and Nicholas married secondly Mary before he went to Ontario in 1794, then Elizabeth died very roughly about 1775-80. There was a Nicholas Outhouse in Haverstraw Twp., Orange Co. (now part of Rockland Co.), NY in the 1790 census. His daughter, Sarah, stated that she was born in Rockland Co., so this was probably him.
  Nicholas Outhouse served as a guide for the Loyalists in the War of Independence. This is somewhat similar to Elizabeth's cousins, Thomas and Abel Flew(w)elling. Thomas was also a guide, and Abel was, on one occasion, a pilot for ships going up the Hudson River. It is a possibility that, like Thomas Flewelling, Nicholas Outhouse acted as a guide for the 1st American Regiment, the Queen's Rangers (the regiment upon which the Green Berets were based, and from which the Canadian army takes its green uniform.) If he had, it was useful later because as a late Loyalist, he would have had to petition for a land grant in Upper Canada, and Governor Simcoe, as the former commanding officer of the Rangers would have recognized his name.
  That Nicholas' children, in later years, exercised their right to take up a free grant of land as the sons and daughters of a Loyalist also suggests this. His arrival in Upper Canada was by way of Nova Scotia and his descendants are found there as well as in Ontario. A muster roll of Loyalists made at Gulliver's Hole, St. Marys Bay, Digby Co., NS made JUN1784 shows him and his son, Robert, there with their families. He returned to Haverstraw, NY and was there in 1790 and 1793. In 1794, pressure from Patriots forced him to go to Upper Canada through what is now Niagara-on-the-Lake, and he eventually settled in Norfolk Co., receiving 200 acres.
  The children of Nicholas and Elizabeth (Flewelling) Outhouse were:
R11. SIMON OUTHOUSE b. Westchester Co., NY ca. 1748, d. young (or 1812.) On the other hand: in the quarterly of the New Brunswick Genealogical Society, "Generations", No. 29, p. 55, is the records of the town of Sackville, NB (across the Bay of Fundy from Digby, sort of.) According to these records, a Simon Outhouse married there 8MAR1785 ELISABETH LAWRENCE (b. 3FEB1769, if she is the "Betsey" Lawrence b. at that time), most likely the daughter of William and Huldy (Seamour) Lawrence of that town. ("Huldy Seamour" is probably better written as Huldah Seymour.) This Simon is also said to have been b. ca. 1748. One Simon Outhouse who this might have been is the son of Robert Outhouse [R126]; however, for this Simon to be married in 1785 is unlikely. Another Simon Outhouse is said to have been a son of Simon and Antje (Willemse) Outhouse, brother to Nicholas [R1A], although it seems such a son would be born before 1748. It seems Simon accompanied his brother to Nova Scotia, and then moved to Sackville, where he had at least one child:
R121. WILLIAM OUTHOUSE b. Sackville, NB 29APR1787, m. Westmoreland Co., NB JUL1809 MARY ANN CHARTER

R1K. PHOEBE OUTHOUSE m. GEORGE MAYNE.
R1L NICHOLAS OUTHOUSE b. ca. 1775, m. 6SEP1831 ELIZABETH McCERMOND
R1M JANE OUTHOUSE m. ALLEN ANDREWS
There may have been others, for example the Daniel Outhouse in the census returns for New Castle, Westchester Co., NY in 1790 and in 1800. Daniel was b. sometime between 1755 andc1774, probably closer to ca. 1760; and there are severe questions concerning the names of their daughters.
Part of the petition of Phoebe (Outhouse) Mayne for land as the daughter of an UE Loyalist, 15MAR1797, endorsed by Isaac Swayze. This shows that Nicholas Outhouse was considered to be a Loyalist in spite of his late arrival in Upper Canada, and suggests that he was active in the Revolution. It is conceivable that Isaac Swayze was a not too distant cousin of Elizabeth (Flewelling) Outhouse through the marriage of her great-great-great aunt, Katherine King to John Swayze.

The petition of Phoebe (Outhouse) Mayne. Notice that she signed it in a fine hand, and wrote in her own name in what appears to be a prepared "form". The 'P's of the person who prepared the petition are different from the signature.    The petition (No. 235) was made 15MAR1797, granted 3APR1797, and a grant of 200 acres was warranted.

ROBERT OUTHOUSE
  Robert Outhouse b. Westchester Co., NY 1750, d. Tiverton, Digby Co., NS 1849, bur. Pleasant Hill Cem., m. 20OCT1785 Tiverton, Digby Co., NS 20OCT1785 Sarah Cauldwell (b. ca. 1768), d/o John Cauldwell.
  He fought with the British, and was later on a muster list at Gulliver's Hole, St. Mary's Bay, New Brunswick. (This appears to be an error for Gulliver's Cove on Digby Neck, by St. Marys Bay, Digby Co., NS. Dr. Esther C. Wright, in, "The Loyalists of New Brunswick", p. 316, does mention a Simon Outhouse who had served in the Westchester Loyalists and was, at least at one time, in Sackville, NB. This suggests the Simon above [R12], who was said to have died young.
  Sarah Cauldwell was born in New Jersey Her father was John Cauldwell, and the John Caldwell who married who married Hannah Outhouse [R16] may well have been her brother.
  The headstone for Robert reads:

Robert Outhouse 1750- 1849
Wife: Sarah (Caldwell) Outhouse
Robert & Sarah were the original Loyalist settlers who founded Tiverton, NS in 1785 Their courage and strength provided inspiration to all of their descendants

They were found by Robin Potter in the Provincial Archives of Ontario.
  According to an 1850 census of Middlesex Co., ONT, Hannah was born ca. 1768, and died sometime before the 1861 census. Sometime about 1793, she married John Caldwell, possibly a son of John Cauldwell. John may have been born ca. 1760.
  John and Hannah first lived in Lincoln Co., ONT, and their three eldest children were baptized at Niagara 24DEC1799 by the Rev. Addison, an Anglican priest. (At the same time, her sister, Phoebe, and the children of Phoebe and another sister, Anna, were also baptized.) About that time, they moved to Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co., ONT, where they lived on Lot 16 of Concession 2, near Port Dover. They also owned land in Charlotteville Twp., Norfolk Co., and appear on the assessment lists for 1809 and 1811.
  After 1812, they sold their land in Norfolk Co. (this would be about the time that their `cousins', son of Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point were showing up in Norfolk Co. and Lincoln Co.), and moved to the 9th Concession of London Township, near Ilderton. About 1818, they moved again to the 2nd Concession of Westminster Twp., near Glendale, now part of London, ONT. Here they remained for the rest of their lives.
  John and Hannah's children were:

  R17. ANNA OUTHOUSE
  Anna Outhouse b. ca. FEB1770, d. 16SEP1854, m. 1st James Smith (b. 1756, d. 8JUN1826, bur, Springcreek Cem.), m.? 2nd William? Kelly. She is often referred to as Sarah Anne or Sarah Jane Outhouse. Usually, however, at the same time her siblings, Sarah and Jane, are listed. There is a real confusion about the names of Nicholas and Elizabeth's daughters, and (in addition to some arbitrary decisions) I have relied on the evidence supplied by Anna's descendant, David E. Johnson. David mentions Anna's headstone, which reads:
Anna Smith
Wife of James Smith


In baptisms performed at Niagara by the Rev. Robert Addisson, of St. Mark's Anglican Church, are, on 24DEC1799:
Anna Smith
John Smith
Elizabeth Smith
Simonson
Smith Phoebe Smith
(of riper years)
}
}of James & Anna
}
}

  In spite of the disagreement about her name, there is a general agreement about her birth and death.
   Her first husband, James Smith, was, David Johnson says, born in the United States of America; but Norma Byrnes has him born in England. He was accepted by the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada as a Loyalist. This means, by their standards, that he had bee a resident of the thirteen colonies prior to the American Revolution, and that he actively supported the British during that conflict. On the other hand, he is said to have been amongst the British Marines, but as a regular, could not be considered a Loyalist.
  In Upper Canada (Ontario) he lived in Pelham Twp., Lincoln Co., and in Toronto Twp. Reid says that he was b. in Pennsylvania ca. 1763, came to Upper Canada in 1794 (as a Simcoe Loyalist?) and settled on Lots 18 and 19, Concession 9, Pelham Twp.
  Anna is said to have married twice; secondly a man, surnamed Kelly, possibly William Kelly to whom, in 1827 and 1835, her children sell land. In the 1852 census of Townsend Twp., Norfolk Co., ONT (where Jacob Flewelling, son of Thomas of Oak Point lived) is James and Anna's daughter and son-in-law, Miles and Hannah (Smith) Dean; and with them is Anna Kelly, age 82 years. Accepting that Anna Kelly is Anna Outhouse is attractive. Her headstone identifies her as the wife of James Smith, and gives her age at death as 84 years and 7 months. James and Hannah's children were:
R171. JOHN SMITH b. ca. 1787, m. CATHARINE SHERWOOD, d/o Abel Sherwood
R172. ELIZABETH SMITH b. USA 15DEC1791, d. 6OCT1854, bur. Springcreek Cem., Clarkson, ONT, m. ca. 1806 HENRY JOHNSON (b. 14FEB1780, d. 25SEP1854, bur, Springcreek Cem., Clarkson, ONT), probably s/o Henry and _____ (Taylor) Johnson

ELIZABETH SMITH
  David E. Johnson, in, The Johnson Generations, privately, 1983, has compiled in depth the descendants of Elizabeth Smith and Henry Johnson. As is obvious, the whole Johnson family in this book are descendants of Robert Flewelling, and this book would be of interest to the Flewelling genealogist.  With David Avery's, "Cogs", and Ted Jones, "All the Days of His Life", there appears to be a growing library on Flewelling genealogy.
  While David has allowed me to excerpt from his work, it would not be reasonable to reproduce it here, and I limited this compilation to the children and grandchildren of this couple. Exceptions are in outlining David's own descent (as per the entry for James Smith in, "Loyalist Lineages", p. 364), and also (from the same source) the descent of Marguerite Elaine Jansen. David's work is augmented here by that of Norma E. Byrnes and notes provided by David E. Johnson.
  Elizabeth Smith b. USA 15DEC1791, d. 6OCT1854, bur. Springcreek Cem., Clarkson, ONT, m. ca. 1806 Henry Johnson (b. 14FEB1780, d. 25SEP1854, bur, Springcreek Cem., Clarkson, ONT), probably s/o Henry and _____ (Taylor) Johnson. It is known that a Henry Smith (ca. 1744-1808/9) had a son, Henry, b. ca. 1780. That Elizabeth, her husband and her mother all died within a month of each other suggests some contagious illness.
   Henry Smith was a farmer, and in 1852 was living in Clarkson, Toronto Twp., ONT. The children of Elizabeth and Henry were:

Smithville, ONT 22APR1869, d. near Redlyn, SASK 22JUN1932, bur. Verwood Cem., Verwood, SASK), d/o Peter and Elizabeth (Alger) Zumstein. Early settlers of Smithville, Lincoln Co., ONT were members of the Griffin family to which Elizabeth Griffin, wife of Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point, probably belonged; and the name of Moses and Hetty's son, Henry Zenus Johnson, recalls that of Zenus Griffin, a genealogist of the Griffin family. The Smiths after whom the town was named were probably descendants of the several Smith families of Long Island, NY with whom the Flewellings were allied or from whom they were descended. A James Flewelling lived in Smithville in the early 19th century, possibly connected to the family of John Flewelling, son of John Flewelling of Newburgh, Ulster Co., NY. This sort of illustrates how families moved as groups, or made contact again after several generations.

  Sarah Outhouse b. Rockland Co., NY ca. 1781, bur. St. Charles' Church Cem., Dereham Twp., ONT m. Port Rowan, ONT Josiah Gilbert (b. NJ.) The following is taken from the notes left by Lt. Col. H. H. Minshall with the Victoria Branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, and appear to originate with a periodical of the Ontario Historical Society, Vol. 2, in 1900.
United Empire Loyalist Settlement at Long Point.
  Josiah Gilbert, of New Jersey, was a corporal in the King's American Regiment, in company with a man named Pearlie he acted as a spy in the War of the Revolution. After peace was concluded he came under the penalties of the same acts passed by the legislature of New Jersey, as having been detailed in Chapter V., and his escape from his native state was almost as dramatic as that of Abraham Smith.
  Late in October, 1783, a body of troops came to his house seeking him, and Gilbert had barely time to leap on his horse and get well away. But he had not gone far when the shouts of his pursuers, also mounted, fell on his ear. The race for freedom was an exciting one, but Gilbert managed to maintain his lead. His pursuers hoped to catch him at the river Allegheny, never thinking that he would venture to cross it. But the brave man, throwing himself from his horse, rolled a small cedar log into the water, and with his left arm about it for support, attempted to steer himself with the other to the opposite shore.
  By the time the Americans reached the river, he was nearly two hundred yards from the bank he had left, although it was only with extreme difficulty that he was making his way slowly across. Forthwith, the sergeant commanded his men to open fire upon the swimmer, and the unremitting sharp-shooting was kept up as long as Gilbert was within range. The arm which encircled the log was shot in the fleshy part, but buy good fortune the bone was not splintered, and he was enabled to cling to his support. The log itself received many balls, but by keeping it between himself and the enemy his head was protected until he was out of range, and the disappointed troopers had to return gloomily home.
  The corporal made his way to New Brunswick, where he remained 'til 1799. In that year he came to the Long Point country settling in the township of Woodhouse. In the War of 1812 he was appointed captain of the local body of volunteers, and again nobly proved his loyalty to Britain.
  Some of his descendants live at the present time near Springford in North Norwich, and some in Dereham Township. A grandson, John Gilbert, aged eighty-nine, is yet living in Dereham; and also the eldest sister of John Gilbert, a Mrs. Mahoney, at the ripe, old age of ninety-two. One of the sons of John Gilbert is called Josiah, after his noted ancestor.
  Since the sister of John Gilbert was likely Selina (Gilbert) Mahoney, then the 'grandson' was most likely Josiah's son, John Gilbert. The article would originally have been written ca. 1899, and John b. ca. 1810.
  An interesting feature is that Josiah was a corporal in the King's American Regiment as were four sons of Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point. One of those four sons, Sgt. Thomas Flewelling, Jr. (1st) was killed while on a reconnaisance mission, perhaps a euphimism for spying. Also, Thomas, Sr., acted as a guide for Simcoe in Westchester Co., NY, and was able to produce a pass allowing him to leave and enter British lines with no questions asked. While this pass was most likely for the purposes of recruiting, it is possible that intelligence gathering was another task. The implication is that Josiah must have known Thomas Flewelling and his family during the American Revolution.
  A recent source is a posting by Dave Cooper (Flewelling GenForum # 2132 11MAY2001), which reads:

  Here are some dates for you, I have more. Josiah Gilbert U.E. b. abt. 1756 in the New York area and died July 1831 in Springford, Ontario was my 3rd great grandfather. He married Sarah Outhouse abt. 1796 in Charlotteville Township and they had the following children: Abraham Gilbert b. 1798 in Charlotteville Township, Norfolk County (never married) d. December 28, 1866 in Dereham Township, Oxford County; Peter Gilbert b. September 27, 1802 in Charlotteville Township and died March 1, 1879 in Dereham Township, married twice - Suelina Earle and Hannah Collard; Benjamin Gilbert b. August 5, 1807 in Charlotteville Township and d. October 18, 1887 in Dereham Township, married twice - Densy Goldsmith and Amy O.; Salina Gilbert b July 24, 1808 in Charlotteville Township and died May 9, 1910, married Michael Mahoney; Sarah Ann Gilbert b. 1809 in South Norwich Township, Oxford County married Michael Cain; William Gilbert b. 1811 in South Norwich Township d. March 3, 1846, married Sarah McKinney; George Gilbert b. 1813 in South Norwich Township d. March 3, 1846; John Gilbert b. September 14, 1815 and d. March 3, 1906, married Purthena Swartout.
Dave adds (Outhouse GenForum # 53 17MAY2001):
  Josiah Gilbert was born about 1756 in the New York area, likely Salem in Westchester County and died in South Norwich Township, Oxford County, Upper Canada between July 15, 1831 and October 12, 1832. The location of his burial site is not known since he died 3 years before the first cemetery was opened. Josiah married Elizabeth (possibly Smith) and they had one child Moses Gilbert born March 10, 1784 in New Brunswick. Elizabeth died in 1786 and early in 1796, Josiah left Moses in New Brunswick with a neighbour and traveled to Upper Canada. On June 8, 1796 in Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) Josiah, applied for a land grant of 200 acres in the Long Point Settlement. In a Land Council document dated July 4, 1797, Josiah and his new wife Sarah Outhouse (her name appears on this document) received 200 acres of waste land on Lot # 12 Concession # 4 of Townsend Township, Norfolk County, Upper Canada.
  That Josiah was b. in New York State suggests a connection with the Gilbert family out of Connecticut.
  The children of Josiah and Sarah (Outhouse) Gilbert were:

Marretta Gilbert, born in Canada West, age 21, female, single.
Ida J. Gilbert, born in Canada West, age 2, female, single.
All of these people are living in the same residence. I believe Benjamin Gilbert was the father of most of these children but which child belongs to what mother? Which belonged to Amy O. and which belong to Densy Goldsmith?
  I only have a few notes from the 1851 Census of Dereham Township.
Benjamin Gilbert
Amy O. Gilbert wife
James Gilbert son, age 17
Phoebe Gilbert daughter, age 13
Marietta Gilbert daughter, age 11
John Gilbert son, age 8
Francis Gilbert daughter, age 6
  It was thought that Gilbert first married Densy Goldsmith, Marilyn Miner Phelps (Flewelling GenForum # 232, 15MAY2001) refers to: Quinte Persons Over 80 Years Old In 1893/94, transcribed by Don Kellaway: at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~onhastin/names.htm
which has the following:
GILBERT, Benjamin, born Sidney, 86 years, his wife 85 years.
GILBERT, Mrs. Samuel, Belleville, 80+.
GILBERT, Benjamin born in Sidney, still living on the farm on which he was born, now 86, Mrs. GILBERT is 85 years old.
GOLDSMITH, Henry, Sidney, 82 years.
This does suggest another Benjamin Gilbert, although the Bay of Quinte is some distance from Oxford Co., and a check of the marriage record might resolve the issue. Co-incidentally, both Benjamin Gilberts are about the same age, although the Oxford Co. one has died by 1887. Presumably, Sidney is a place on the Bay. Dave Cooper (Flewelling GenForum # 233 15MAY2001) adds: "We have come up with some proof. Densy Goldsmith lived in, I believe Sidney Township, Hastings County, Ontario near Belleville when she married Benjamin Gilbert. This I can not dispute. Hastings County and Oxford County are roughly 200 miles apart, a long way to travel to find a bride in 1830." Thus, Densy Goldsmith was geographically placed to marry the `other' Benjamin Gilbert. The 1871 census of Sidney in the Hastings West district of Hastings Co., shows, interestingly enough, that the other Benjamin was a Quaker, age 63, of German origin. (Page: 94, Microfilm reel C-9990, Public Archives of Canada, Reference: RG31 Statistics Canada.) The same year, for South Oxford, Oxford Co. (page: 114, Microfilm reel C-9910, Public Archives of Canada, Reference: RG31, Statistics Canada) is our Gilbert, an Anglican, a farmer, age 63, of English origin.
  David also adds: "Benjamin Gilbert along with his brother's Abraham and Peter, all sons of Josiah Gilbert UE, worked for George Tillson the founder of Tillsonburg, Dereham Township, Oxford County from the years 1824 to 1826. This has been recorded in the personal diary of George Tillson 1824 thru 1830 and on display at the Tillsonburg Museum. It states these three boys lived in Springford, Norwich Township, Oxford County which is where Josiah Gilbert purchased land in 1808 from Robert Addison. I have a copy of Benjamin Gilbert's Land Petition Number G16/66 found in The National Archives of Canada. It is a petition for land he applied for being the son of a United Empire Loyalist, over the age of 21. This grant does not mention a spouse but it is dated July 15, 1831 and it shows his address as being Norwich Township, Oxford County."
  Marilyn Miner Phelps (Flewelling GenForum #235 15MAY2001) as a transcript from an obituary in an unidentified newspaper:
Newspaper clipping from Dereham Township ( newspaper unknown) reads

Old Pioneer Gone......Benjamin Gilbert - 1887

  On Friday evening, October 28 at his residence near the M. C. R. station, passed peacefully away, at a ripe old age. Benjamin Gilbert, one of the best known and most highly respected of the old pioneers of the county of Oxford. Mr. Gilbert apparently died of old age and although he lingered for some weeks, did not to all appearances suffer much pain. The deceased was born somewhere at the beginning of the century at Charlotteville in the neighboring county of Norfolk and was therefore considerably over eighty years of age. His father served against the American rebels in the Revolutionary War of 1776, and was one of that noble band of men --the United Empire Loyalists--who sacrificed their all for their attachment to the old flag. The deceased was always distinguished for his sturdy, unbending loyalty to the British Crown and like his father, was ready to seal his principles with his blood having served in the rebellion of 1837. He was a member of L. O. L. 254. One brother, two sisters and six children survive him. His funeral, which took place on Monday at St. Charles Church, Dereham, was attended by an immense concourse of teams of people and was one of the largest ever seen in Dereham. Rev. R. F. Dixon Read the memorial service and at the request of the family spoke at the grave.

R1J542.
ANNETTE JANE MAHONEY

  Annette Jane Mahoney b. Oxford Co., ONT 23OCT1859, d. Paris, Brant Co., ONT 1JUL1941, m. Jacob H. Snell (b. Oxford Co., ONT, d. Paris, ONT), s/o Uriel (Uriah) and Rachel (Moore) Snell. Jacob H. Snell was related to Annette by marriage. His aunt, Temperance Snell, married John D. Fluelling [R3421] and John's uncle, Benjamin W. Fluelling [R346] married, Mary Christian Snell; and his mother, Rachel Moore, may well be the sister of Martin Moore [R343A] who also married into this branch of Robert's family. It is intriguing, adding the marriage of Amy O. Fluelling [R344] with Benjamin Gilbert [R1J4] that these branches should come so close together, but not necessarily surprising as it is a reflection of the bonds within the community of the Society of Friends. It is also worth noting that the Moores and Fluellings were also in the company of Reuben and Sarah Haight, who may well also be descendants of Robert Flewelling. One feature of these coincidences is that they show that the Quaker Fluellings, Flewellings, Flewwellins, Flewellyns are more likely descended from Robert Flewelling. The children of Annette and Jacob were:

(12MAR1998) is information on this family. In part, it reads:
The Petition of Phoebe (Outhouse) Maynes, wife of George Maynes, was granted to lands in Charlottesville, Norfolk County. However, George and Phoebe settled on in Pelham on George Maynes lands. However, her early petition, shown below, is typical of the son or daughter of a loyalist. George and Phoebe's daughters, Anna and Elizabeth, also remained in Pelham. Anna married Mathew Haney and settled on George and Phoebe's lands in Pelham. Elizabeth married the Rev. Leonard Haney, who can be seen on the 1862 Tremaine map of Pelham
Document restoration work on the petition was rather minimal. However, there was substantial restoration work done on the approval and witness statements. I am grateful to Robin Potter who found these documents at the Archives of Ontario.
George and Phoebe Maynes had two daughters, Anna and Elizabeth. The girls were baptised with their mother and other family members by the Rev. Addison, St. Mark's Church, Newark, on Dec. 24, 1799. Anna married Mathew Haney. Elizabeth married the Rev. Leonard Haney.
  Another portion reports:
Below are the meeting minutes in 26 June 1795 in which George Maynes is granted lot 214 in Newark, Ontario. Newark was later known, I believe, as Niagara-on-the-Lake.
In 1797, George Maynes receives an additional crown grant for 400 Acres in Pelham, lots 18 & 19, Concession 10. It will take a while to load, so be patient.
Thanks to Barbaranne Wright who found the 1795 Meeting Notes where George Maynes was granted his Newark's lots. Later documents suggest that he either didn't settle them, or didn't stay on them too long, and he is granted lands in 1797 in Pelham. This land is later sold to the Nunns and another lot to Mathew Haney, his son-in-law.
Their children included:
R1L1. ANNA MAYNE m. MATHEW HANEY
R1L2. ELIZABETH MAYNE m. ca. 1818 the Rev. LEONARD HANEY (b. Thorold Twp., Welland Co., ONT 10JAN1796, d. 25JUL1864.) At the site mentioned above is the following:
The obituary of the Rev. Leonard Haney, from the Canadian Christian Advocate. The source was reported in McKenzie's More Methodist Notes The image is loading below. For those who lack patience, here is what it says, transcribed by Doreen Carlson:
Died, in great peace, on the 25th of July, 1864, Brother Leonard Haney, in the 69th year of his age. Brother Haney was born in the township of Thorold, Welland County, on the 10 Jan. 1796, and when 22 years of age, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Maynze. He embraced religion under the labors of Rev. I. Smith, and united with the M. E. Church, 11th Sept. 1817, he filled the various offices of steward, class-leader and exhorter with great acceptability and success, until 1832, when he received a license as local preacher. In 1833 when the union took place, brother Haney took a decided stand, unflinching in his integrity, firmly adhering to the church of his choice through all her troubles connected with that event, supporting her institutions by his influence and contributions till called to join the church triumphant. Brother Haney joined the traveling connection and was ordained deacon in June 1835, and was appointed to a field of labor as an itinerant. He received ordination of Elder in Sept. 1840, at the hands of Bishop Reynolds. He located in 1842, and from that time till his death he was ever about his master's business, both in regular and protracted efforts for the advancement of the cause of Christ. As a neighbor he was affable and obliging; as a husband and father, he was kind, indulgent and affectionate; as a Christian he was zealous, exemplary and devoted; an excellent counsellor, and a faithful friend. He preached his last sermon eight days before his death, from the 7th verse of the 19th Psalm: "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul." Next day he was taken down with gastric fever, which terminated in death, after one week of severe and painful illness, without a murmur; his firm faith and confidence in God remained unshaken to the last moment. In reply to a friend the day before his death he said, "my feet are on the rock;" the same evening to another he said, " All is clear, here is not a cloud, between me and my Saviour." A short time before he left the world he said to his weeping companion, "Do not mourn for me I am going home," and to one of his family who said to him, 'O death where is thy sting.'-with a smile he replied, Truth, truth; and in a few minutes his spirit took its flight to be with Christ eternally shut in. He left a large family to mourn their loss, most of whom give evidence of a change of heart and know that if faithful here they will meet the loved one again. His absence is sorrowfully felt in the church, and throughout the whole community. His remains were followed to the tomb by a large circle of sorrowing relatives and friends, in one of the largest processions ever witnessed in this part of the country. An appropriate address was delivered by Rev. F. M. Smith, from Numbers xxiii, 10--"Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his" By order of Dis. Conference, Jacob Patteson.
