Amy Johnson Crow, on her blog No Story Too Small, has challenged her fellow bloggers to post 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. This is week twenty-six.
My great-great-great grandmother, Charlotte Williams, was born around 1825 in Ireland. Her parents were Robert Williams and Elizabeth Hamilton.
I have not yet determined when exactly the family moved from Ireland to Canada but Charlotte married Thomas Fee on December 5, 1844 in the Protestant Episcopal Church in Ormstown, QC.
By the 1851 census, Thomas (35) and Charlotte (32) are living in St. Malachie, QC. Thomas is listed as an Inn-keeper. Their children are John (7), Robert (5), Thomas (3), and William Reid (1).
The 1861 census finds the family still in St. Malachie but Thomas (40) now is listed as a Trader. Also living with Charlotte (40) and Thomas are their children John (16), Robert (14), William (10), Sarah (8), Charlotte (5) and Maria (1). They live in a frame house.
Somewhere between the 1861 census and 1871 census, the family moved to Montreal. They are found on the 1871 census living in Ste Anne Ward, Montreal. Thomas (53) and Charlotte (50) are living with John (24), Robert (22), William (17), Sarah (15), Andrew (13), Charlotte (11), and Maria (9).
Charlotte passed away in 1876. Her record of burial states
July 7th, 1876
Charlotte Fee wife of Thomas Fee departed this life on the fifth day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy-six and was interred by me on this the seventh day of the same month and year.
