Subject: Mathews and O'Connor of Sydenham Township
Date: Sun, 5 Feb 2006 21:04:07 -0700


Hello List,

I am a newbie looking for information on the surnames Mathews and O'Connor
of Sydenham Township, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada.

Below is a list of Mathews and O'Connors that came in to the U.S. in the late 1850s to the
state of Minnesota.

I am aware of a Thomas O'Connor and wife Nora Mathews of Sydenham who sold land to a Joseph Denevan.
Can anyone find me information for the O'Connor and Mathews families regarding the Canadian aspect of the families?

I would like records of birth, death, school, newspaper accounts of birth, death, marriage and gossip and cemetery information.
I would also like census records which show Nora Mathews family and siblings as well as Thomas O'Connors.

Thank you for your time and any efforts!!
Kate

History on John and Catherine O'Connor - per 1945 obit:

John O'Connor born December 16th, 1851 in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada, the son of Thomas O'Connor and Nora Mathews. He came to the U.S. Minnesota in 1856 with his parents. They settled in the vicinity of Shieldsville where his parents opened a general store and trading post. Not long after forced out of business they moved for a short time to Cedar Lake. Then a move to Warsaw where Thomas pre-empted a homestead which has been in the family for almost 90 years. John married Catherine Fitzpatrick on February 19, 1879 in the Shieldsville church. Together they had seven children: John, Charles, Mary, Della, Thomas, George and Clara (Mrs. Henry Voegel).
