Hi - I'm new to this list and not quite sure where to start researching the above
Thomas SPENCE was born c. 1857, York (?) He was married to Mary GILES born c. 1860 and
they lived in Hull, Yorkshire. Names of children: Thomas, Herbert, Annie, Ernest, Harold,
Gertrude, Alice and Jennie.
Jenny is the line I am following. Jenny was born 1884/85, Hull, and married William
Herbert BATER, Oct. 5, 1910 in Clinton Twp. Lincoln Co. Jenny died July 16. 1920 in
Toronto and her sister, Gertrude, became wife #2.
However, it's Jenny's parents that I am most interested in. I have no information
on Thomas SPENCE and Mary GILES. I've searched the IGI and the on line Census but
can't find them.
I'm also looking for Abraham BATER, born c. 1799 England (don't know where). He
first went to the U. S. A. before moving to the Niagara area and worked on the first
Welland Canal. He died March 14, 1886 and is buried in the Zion Cemetery, Ontario.
I would be so grateful if someone can help me with this. I've also joined the other
HULL YORKS list so this message will be duplicated there.
