Still searching for the above names. We are certain at this point that James Anderson
married Mary ? or at least lived
in Fermanagh, in or near Enniskillen. At one point we thought her maiden name was Trotter
but have heard Powell, Porter and Potter mentioned by various relatives. They had 6
children there before coming to Canada circa 1844. Mary died and James brought his
children to Canada. They were:
John Thomas Anderson born May 24, 1818 Enniskillen, Ireland
Mary Ann Anderson born May 24, 1819 Enniskillen, Ireland
George, Mary Ann's twin, born same date Enniskillen, Ireland
Isabella Anderson born c 1826-1828 Enniskillen, Ireland
James (we think) Samuel Anderson born May 8, 1828 or 1829 Enniskillen, Ireland.
Catherine Anderson born Oct 30, 1835-1837 Enniskillen Ireland.
John Thomas Anderson married Ann Johnston in either Fermanagh or Brantford Ontario in
Mary Ann married Robert Elliott. in Ontario
George we are not sure who he married
Isabella Anderson married John Good. Ontario
Catherine married Henry Touchburn. Ontario
James married Melinda Eddy in Ontario.
As far as we know all of their spouses also came from Ireland.
Has anyone seen any evidence of this family in Fermanagh. Or can you offer some advice on
how I could find information such as birth, school, etc, records on them. I am willing to
pay a researcher but don't know where their records, if any, might be. They were
Methodist once they arrived in Canada.
Please, can someone help us find records of these people in Ireland.
