Asenath Kynoch

ID # 3776, (1877-1945)
FatherWilliam Kynoch (1810-1890)
MotherAsenath Coleman (1839-1924)
BirthAsenath Kynoch was born in October 1877. 
MarriageShe married Hugh McNulty, son of James McNulty and Janet Gray.
We do not have an Ontario record of marriage for Hugh McNulty and Asenath Kynoch. We must believe they were married elsewhere, probably in Alberta.
DeathShe died on 21 July 1945 at Seattle, Washington, at age 67. 
NoteA birth registration for Asenath has not been found. She appears as age 4 in the 1881 census with her parents and siblings in Beverly Township.

Asenath is shown as age 14 at the time of the 1891 census in Beverly. Her father is dead. Also in 1891, a Farmers' Directory for Wentworth County shows her mother, Asenath Kynoch, postal address Freelton, to be residing at concession 9, lot 35 in Beverly. The directory does not discuss size of the given lot, but viewing a map of Beverly from some years earlier, the 200 acre township lot seems already broken up into smaller pieces so far as ownership is concerned.

A certain record of young Asenath in 1901 has not been found. See notes for Hugh.

Something of the history of Asenath and Hugh may be followed under the notes for Hugh so far as the end of available census information in 1921.

Asenath has not been found in the 1930 U.S. census. It's entirely possible that she was in Alberta with Hugh. It is evident, however, that the marriage of Asenath and Hugh came to an end at some point prior to 1935, for on December 25th of that year she married Herbert Ealand Rice, age 64, native of Iowa, residing Glendale, California. She is shown as age 57, native of Canada, residing Los Angeles. The witness was Ruth Lingham of Los Angeles.

The 1940 census shows Asenath Rice, a nurse, living with illeg. Freelander in Los Angeles and his daughter Etta.

Also in 1940, we find a border crossing from St. Stephen, New Brunswick to Calais, Maine, by Asenath McNulty, age 62, practical nurse, born Freelton, Ontario, destined Los Angeles to friend Ruth Lingham. Her Canadian contact is given as her daughter, Mrs. James F. Cobb of Charlottetown, P.E.I.

Familysearch has a database Washington Death Certificates, 1907-1960. Asenath's reads:
