15. Information from Linda Grant, I have [Ann Hartley] documented back to her marriage in Colne 5 Mar 1837 to George RUSHTON in Colne parish. 1840 Trawden census shows Colne as her birthplace (birthdate was 13 Jan 1814) but I can't find a baptism in Colne to match that timing. I've found 2 possible Ann Hartleys but one is 1812 (too early by all evidence) and the other is about 1820 which is awfully late for baptism (and she's not Methodist). I keep digging into the Ontario records hoping something might be there to give me a better clue on her birthplace and parents. I do have her obituary from Oct 1889 Brantford Expositor. .

16. Information from Linda Grant, Ann and George arrived in Brantford in 1854.
