MS248 reel 1, Vol.4, page 15
Gore District Marriage Register

Extracted from a list of marriages solemnized by Rev'd John Winterbotham, Baptist.

Elijah Miers of Brantford and Ann Miesner of Beverly, by publication on May 29, 1843. Witnesses John Hammell and James Hammill.

As is typical with marriages from these records, the exact location of the marriage is not given. Rev. Winterbotham was minister at First Baptist Church in Brantford from September of 1842 to July of 1850. Since the marriage was preceded by 'publication' (the reading of the banns of marriage) it may be that the marriage was held in the church. It is still quite possible, however, that the marriage was held at a residence. The best we may say is that the marriage was almost certainly held in the Gore District. 
DeathShe died on 19 October 1870 at Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 47. 
BurialShe was buried at Troy Cemetery, Troy, Ontario. 
NoteThe date of Lydia Ann's birth is calculated from the inscription on her gravestone at Troy Cemetery. She died October 19, 1870, and her age is given as 47 years, 11 months and 16 days.
