ID # 2988, (1829-)
|Birth||Emily Barrett was born in 1829 at Ireland.|
|Marriage||She married Jacob Lawrason Keefer, son of Robert Keefer and Lavinia Lawrason.|
|Note||Emily appears in the 1861 and 1871 census in Bruce County with her husband Jacob. She is not present in the 1881 census and no death registration has been found. We know of her surname, Barrett, from marriage registrations from several of her children.|
Both the 1861 and 1871 censuses state that Emily was born in Ireland. The 1851 census for Brant Township in Bruce County has survived and Emily is there with Mrs. Barrett, born in Ireland. They are in the household of William and Jane Hall who are both born in Ireland. Mrs. Barrett is described as mother-in-law (this will be to William). Emily will be Jane's younger sister.
