Eliza Jane Kemp
ID # 1841, (1850-1905)
|Father||Robert Kemp (1812-1891)|
|Mother||Margaret Vrooman (1815-1908)|
|Birth||Eliza Jane Kemp was born on 21 October 1850 at Grimsby Twp., Lincoln Co., Ontario.|
|Marriage||She married John Albert Book on 20 August 1870 at Lincoln County.|
An 1870 page of Lincoln County marriage registrations exists that provides minimal information. It does not appear to limit the list of marriages by township and does not provide family or witness information. Very briefly, it reads:
Groom: Book, John Albert. Date of Marriage: Aug. 20, 1870. Bride: Kemp, Eliza Jane. Clergyman: Rev. James Brock. Denomination (apparently that of clergyman): Methodist.
|Death||She died on 6 February 1905 at Clinton Twp., Lincoln Co., at age 54.|
|Burial||She was buried at Smithville United Church Cemetery.|
|Note||Eliza's middle name was evidently Jane. Her death registration has an overwrite and isn't entirely clear, but she was still living at the time of the 1901 census and deceased by the time of the 1911 census, so the registration that follows appears to be for her.|
016824-05 Clinton Twp., Lincoln Co.
Eliza H. Book, died Feb 6, 1905, age 70 Born Clinton Twp. Informant J.W. Buck.
The middle initial is incorrect. She would have been 60 and not 70. She would have been born in Grimsby Twp. The informant's name may not be correct.
