59 (From French translation)
= Eliisabeth (Isabelle), daughter of Michel Aubert and Jeanne AUBERT, was born about 1646 in the parish of Saint-Sulpice in Paris according to several authors (Aubin, Dumas, Jette, Landry, Langlois), which no doubt rely, for affirm this origin, on the marriage certificate entered in the register of Notre Dame of Quebec; the celebrant wrote that Elisabeth is the " daughter of Michel Aubert and Jeanne Aubert her father and mother of the parish of S t Sulpice of the city of Paris " In the marriage contract between Aubin Lambert and Isabel Aubert of Sept. 4, 1670, Isabelle was substituted for Elizabeth. Estienne and Anne Gasnier have signed with Jean-Baptiste Gosset, Gilles du Tartres, Marie Anne de Saussay and Roman Becquet. She will be named Anne in a few notarial acts in 1713 and 1717. Brother Real Aubin, who did exhaustive research on Aubin Lambert children could not find the date of birth of Elisabeth after research in Paris in 1977. Other research carried out by Yves Landry in the Excerpts of the Baptesmes Registers of Saint-Sulpice of Paris between 1636 and 1660, also remained vain.
The researcher Jean Paul Macouin, in Fichier Origine in June 2008, advanced that Elizabeth is the daughter of Michel Aubert, but that her mother is Jeanne Audeau and that Elizabeth was baptized on April 13, 1648, in Saint Jacques de la Boucherie, Paris, as well as her brother Pierre (August 26, 1649) and sister Anne (July 2, 1650). This same researcher says that Elizabeth's family lived in Paris on the Pont-au-Change in 1649 and on the rue de Gesvres in 1650. Her father worked as a master smelter. When she arrived in New France in 1670, Elizabeth had goods estimated at 200 livres and a King's gift of 50 pounds. She did not know how to sign. In the census of 1681, she is attributed 45 years; but in the Register of Patients at the Hotel-Dieu de Québec in 1690, she was given 39 years (June 12), 48 years ( August 1st ), 43 years (September 1st ) and finally 47 years (October 1st ). A plausible hypothesis: her family lived in the parish of Saint-Sulpice in Paris between 1650 and 1670.
She married, on Monday, September 29, 1670 in Quebec City, Aubin Lambert dit Champagne, son of Odoard, maneuver, and Jacqueline Feillard, of Saint-Aubin de Tourouvre, district of Mortagne, in Perche (Orne). He had was baptized on June 30, 1632 in Saint-Aubin. He arrived in New France in 1662; in 1663, he occupied a land of two arpents in front at Château-Richer, that he exchanges with Jacques Goulet for a land in Cap-Rouge, in the lordship of Maur, on which it is in September 1668. In the census of 1681, he is a resident of the seigneury of Maur, in Saint-Augustin. In March 1688, he was an inhabitant of the seigniory of Maur. From 1670 to 1687, he was very active as evidenced by the various sales and delivery commitments for sawn timber and contracts relating to concessions, sales or exchanges of land. He must even face, before the Provost of Quebec, the prosecution of the lord of Maur (lods claim and sales) and by the Roman notary Spoiler (claim for payment of land sold by the latter in March 1670). Michel Langlois made a record of these transactions concerning Aubin 4 . Revenues from the sale of sawn wood and the land of Saint-Augustin-du-Nord Desmaures are not enough to meet the needs of the family. Looking other incomes, it commits August 10, 1687 with Nicolas Marion said Lafontaine, by leasing, for a period of nine years, two lands on the south shore St. Lawrence. On March 28, 1688, he is granted a land of four arpents head on forty deep at Lauzon. But it is not not enough and, on April 17, 1689, he undertakes to provide Nicolas Marion the sum of one hundred pounds and two thousand eels prepared in brine, for the rent of these land. The family will eventually live on the Lauzon coast. We can think that his wife Elizabeth did not have an easy life. She had to face difficult conditions from the beginning of his marriage, live the inconvenience of her husband's financial problems, not to mention the moves. To this is added birth of a dozen children. In 1690, her health was deteriorated, she is hospitalized four times at the Hotel-God of Quebec where she died on October 4th.
After the death of his wife, Aubin finds himself at the age 58 years old with nine living children, aged one to 17; Elder Françoise left the house when she got married. According to Brother Real Aubin, it is Catherine, deaf and dumb, 17 years old, who will take charge of keeping the house and the task of educating the youngest children of the family. The head of the family is dead and was buried on the 4th April 1713 in Saint-Nicolas. He did not know how to sign.
The household of Elizabeth and Aubin Lambert, established at the coast Saint-Ange at Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, included ten children, nine of whom got married and gave them 93 grandchildren .

- John is either John Tyrrell, baptized Aug. 28, 1756 at Sydling, Dorset, of George and Dianah, or, John Tyrrell christened Sept. 12, 1756 at Steventon, Berkshire, of William and Mary. Until/unless DNA evidence is found, I am assigning his parents as George and Dianah.

(NOTE: Given the above, and that as of 11/2019 I had 19 DNA matches to a John Tyrrell, father of William, but none to Mary Stoaks, and, that I have zero DNA matches to either George Tyrrell and Dinah Jervis, I have removed John's wife as Mary Stoaks and changed his parents from George and Diana, to William and Mary to see if DNA hits come in from that supposed relationship.)

- June, 2020: A DNA hit to the unknown mother of Mary Stoaks has caused me to return her as John's wife. The hit comes from the Hanlon family tree by judy4113 which includes the Stoakes surname.

"Michael Spencer, born probably 1530-1535, living in 1599; married first, at Edworth, Beds, 20 Jan. 1555/6, Agnes Limer, who was buried at Edworth, 23 Feb. 1561/2; married second, about 1563, Elizabeth ___, who was buried at Stotfold, Beds, 18 Nov. 1599, as wife of Michael Spencer, signifying that he was then alive.
The division of Michael's children between the two wives is somewhat different from what might be inferred from the Rev. Mr. Holding's book, because of the discovery of the burial of the first wife, Agnes, early in 1562. The name of the mother is not stated in the Edworth baptisms, but Elizabeth is stated as mother of the two children, Gerard and Richard, who were baptized at Stotfold. We therefore assume that Elizabeth was mother of the other children who were born after 1562 and before the birth of Gerard in 1576, though it remains possible that there was a second, unknown, wife between Agnes and Elizabeth.
The removal of the family from Edworth to Stotfold occurred between 1571 and 1576.
Children by first wife, born at Edworth
i. John, bapt. at Edworth, 20 Apr. 1557.
ii. Michael, bapt. at Edworth, 27 May 1558 bur. 15 Apr. 1560.
iii. Anne, bapt. 24 July 1560.
Children, the last two certainly, the others probably, by Elizabeth:
iv. Joan, bapt. at Edworth, 21 Aug. 1564.
v. Alice, bapt. 30 Aug. 1566.
vi. Catherine, m. ___ Bland, and had daus. Sarah and Anne. Either she or one of her sisters was mother of Elizabeth who m. Edward Terry.
vii. Thomas, bapt. 12 Mar. 1571.
viii. Gerard, bapt. 20 May 1576 the first of the children baptized at Stotfold, and recorded as "Gerat," but his name is spelled Gerard at the baptisms of his own children.
ix. Richard, bapt. 9 July 1580; d. at London at the end of May or beginning of June 1646. His will, dated 17 Mar. 1645, codicil 29 May 1646, proved 8 June 1646, calls him "gent." (Waters, "Genealogical Gleanings in England," 514-515). To Thomas Spencer, copyhold lands in St. Michael Parish near St. Albans, co. Hertford. To Daniel Spencer of London, grocer, son of brother John Spencer deceased, eight messuages in parish of St. Margaret Lothbury in London.

65 - "The American Genealogist," Vol. 27 "The Four Spencer Brothers: Their Ancestors and Descendants," compiled by Donald Lines Jacobus, M. A.:
"The present history of the Spencer family which descended from the four New England sons of Gerard Spencer of Stotfold, Bedfordshire, had its inception in 1947 in a correspondence between the present compiler, Mr. Clarence A. Torrey of Boston, Mass., and the late Mr. Homer W. Brainard of Amherst, Mass., all Spencer descendants who agreed to pool their data...
The Spencers were a numerous and an important family and being founded by four brothers their history is the equivalent of four separate genealogies...
Herewith we present the English ancestry. Mr. Torrey has collected a great deal of material on the interesting Whitbred family to which the mother of the four brothers belonged. This maternal ancestry, we hope, will be ready for a later chapter.
In 1903 the Rev. John Holding, M.A., then Vicar of Stotfold, co. Bedford, England, published "The Spencers of Bedford." Despite a lack of formal arrangement, the book is a mine of information. The most prominent family of the Spencer name in Bedfordshire had their seat at Cople in the 16th and 17th centuries, and a good account is given of this family, tracing it back to one Thomas Spencer who was living at Eton in 1433. Several other groups of Spencers in various parishes and towns are included, but their connection, if any, with the Spencers of Cople does not appear. Herein, so far as we know, the ancestry of William, Thomas, Michael and Gerard Spencer is for the first time set forth, though some years earlier the noted antiquary, Henry F. Waters, had found mention of the four brothers in the will of their London uncle Richard Spencer, and had published this in the "New England Hist. and Gen. Register" and in 1901 included it in his "Genealogical Gleanings in England."
In recent years the parish registers of Stotfold and Edworth have been included by F. G. Emmison in his "Bedfordshire Parish Registers Series. Careful comparison has been made between these and the entries as printed by the Rev. Mr. Holding, resulting in some corrections and in the addition of two or three important entries.
Since both the parish records and the wills which prove the ancestry have appeared fully in the sources indicated, it is deemed unnecessary to repeat them here, except as reference is made to them in the pedigree of the family which follows. It is not felt that Mr. Holding established the parentage or origin of John Spencer, great-grandfather of the four emigrant brothers, hence we start our account with him...
...So far as the early generations of the family are concerned, little use has been made of printed sources. Useful though they are for the later generations of specific branches, it was thought desirable to base the present account, as far as possible, on an independent survey of primary record sources. Two important manuscript collections, however, have been consulted and utilized, that of Lucius A. Barbour on Hartford families at the State Library, Hartford, and that of D. Williams Patterson on East Haddam families at the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford...
1. John Spencer, born probably within a few years after 1500, buried at Edworth, co. Bedford, 9 June 1558; married Anne, perhaps Merrill, who was buried at Edworth, 16 June 1560.
John was called "senior" at burial. The recorder in entering the burial of Ann Spencer, widow, paid her respect by the following tribute: "the good hospitallity keeper; and she did give to the towneship of Edworth ii of her best bease [beastsl to be lett to ii pore folks in the towne for iii s. a cow & the parson & churchwarden to have the letting of them & the distributing of the money to the poore & to se the stock meinteined each of them to have iiii d. of the vi s. for ther paynes to se this truly done acording to her last will."
Her will, dated 13 June 1560, proved 21 Apr. 1561, calls her Widow, in Edworth, Beds., and names her son Gerard (aged 17); son Michael, to have the chest that was his brother John's; John Spencer, son Michael's Child, to have £20; Elisabeth Lymer, to have ₤4 at marriage; Alice Aystin, to have a calf; servants; for the mending of "London Brygge waye," 10 s.; brother Edward's children, to have the ₤1 that he borrowed of her, and the barley he gave her sons to his children; Nicholas Merryll and John Merryll his brother, to have the barley their father gave her sons; and the poor of Edworth, to have the gift already mentioned. Michael Spencer was a witness.
From this will we gain the impression that our Spencer family at that period was of the yeoman class, and somewhat better off than the average village family of the time and place. Whether they were in origin a younger branch of an older gentry family, or a more humble clan which by industry and good fortune had improved its lot, we are not in a position to affirm. It would be necessary to prove the parentage and more remote ancestry of John Spencer, Sr., by documentary evidence, before claiming any specific connection with any other Spencer family in England. From the terms of the will, it would seem that Anne's brother was Edward Merryll or Merrill, and that this was her maiden name. A search of Merrill wills might confirm this conjecture.
Children:
i. Michael, b. probably 1530-1535.
ii. John, bur. at Edworth, 21 Apr. 1560, as son of Ann Spencer, widow.
iii. Gerard, b. Ca. 15143; d. at Biggleswade, Beds, ca. 1577; m. at Edworth, 30 July 1568, Ellen Whyston. His will, dated 8 July 1576, proved 20 May 1577, calls him of Biggleswade, yeoman, and names son Richard, under 21 (to have ₤60); daus. Agnes and Johan Spencer (underage) and child unborn, to have 140 marks apiece at 18 years; wife Elen; god-daughter Johan Spencer, my brother 's dau. (to have ₤1); brother Michael Spencer (to have 5 marks); wife Helen and brother Michael, executors. (F.C.C. Doughtrey, 19.) Children: 1. Richard. 2. Agnes. 3. Joan. 4. A child, b. 1576-7.
...The records cited establish the parentage of the four New England brothers and their descent from John and Anne Spencer of Edworth. Various attempts which we have seen to push the line further back either contain fatal flaws or lack any acceptable evidence to sustain them..."

Steven Barcomb of Syracuse, NY, who also is descended from Mary, says that family legend has it that it was a very short marriage and ended when James was killed in a farm accident involving a silage cutter.

- We assume Joseph's death occurred after 1867 and before 1870, since Mary's second child, identified in the 1861 census as Joseph Henry, was born in August, 1867 and named after his father.

- No later than April, 1870, Mary takes up residence with/marries Louis Laflair, who impregnates her about April, 1870, with Mary Violet, who is born Feb. 1, 1871. Mary's son Joseph, whose father was her first husband, takes the name LaFlair.

- 1871 Canadian census: At Kemptville, Grenville, Ontario (census taken April 2, 1871) are Napoleon Bac (Beique), 41, b. Quebec, cooper; Mary, 25, b. Russia (the township in Herkimer County where she was born;) Herada Oritha, 6, b. U.S.; Joseph Henry, 3, b. U.S.; and Mary, 3 mos., b. Ontario. If this census is correct, Joseph and Mary Brundage resided in the U.S. at least between the births of Harriet/Henrietta in 1865 and Joseph Henry in 1867, though later records indicate both children were born in Canada.

- Oct. 15, 1871, Holy Cross Church, Kemptville, Ontario: On the 15th day of October, 1871, I the undersigned priest baptized Harriet, born of the marriage of Joseph Henry Brundihut (Brundage) and Mary Paulin, aged about 7 years. On the 15th day of October, 1871, I the undersigned priest baptized Mary Ann, born the 6th of April last, (April 6, 1871) of the marriage of Napoleon Lafleur and Mary Paulin. There is no question this birth date for Mary is incorrect, since the 1871 census taken April 2 listed her as being three months old. The birth date of Feb. 1, 1871, is also on her death certificate.

- 1900 U.S. census, "Polly" (a nickname for Mary) LaFlair is 55 years old and is living with her daughter Emmie on Pickering St., Ogdensburg. She was born in January 1845. She has had 12 children and only 4 of them are still alive. She was born in Canada as were both of ther parents. She can read, write and speak English. (We have records of only five children born to Mary. Others likely were born and died as infants, since there are nine years between Mary Violet and Catherine, and six years between Catherine and Emma.)

- 1910 US census indicates that Mary had nine children and that four of them were still living.

- Bible of Dorothy Walling Cayen: The mother of Catherine Walling, Mary Polley O'Hagan, was born Jan 12, 1840, and died Nov. 17, 1922.

- Nov. 18, 1922: Mrs. Mary O'Hagan, widow of Francis John O'Hagan, died here yesterday aged 66 years. She is survived by four children, Mrs. Samuel Boyer of Syracuse, Mrs. Harvey Laflalr of Newark, NY, Mrs. William Walling of Ogdensburg, and Joseph Henry O'Hagan of Niagara''Falls; also a sister, Mrs. Timmerman of Rochester. The deceased was a member of St. John's Church. The funeral will be from the home of her daughter, 61 Ford Ave., Monday and at St. John's with burial in the Ogdensburg Cemetery.

- St. John's Church bulletin of Nov. 26, 1922: Mrs. Mary O'Hagan was buried Nov. 20.

75 - 1850 census: Alexander, 21 (b. 1829) in Canada, resides Town of Oswegatchie with his parents and siblings.
- 1860 U.S. census has Alex Holmes, 29 (b. 1831) in Canada, residing in Ogdensburg with Nancy, 30, (b. 1830, NY) and Emely, 1, (b. 1859 NY) and Josephine, 3 mos., NY. This was taken July 9, 1860. Alex is a saloon keeper and cannot read or write.
- June 4, 1866: Alexander Holmes granted license to sell spirituous liquors.
- June 21, 1870: Ogdensburg Common Council grants license to sell ale and spirituous liquors to James M. Savage, Alex Holmes, John R. McGraw, and others.
- Nov. 1876: Ogdensburg Journal: Alexander Holmes arrested with other family members in burglary ring.
- There is no record that Alexander was prosecuted for the above. The ringleader was his brother Jacob's son Edward, who was sentenced to eight years in prison.

- After the above, no reference can be found to Alex Holmes, nor his wife and two children. None of them appear in the 1870 or 1880 U.S. or 1871 and 1881 Canadian censuses. They simply disappear. His children cannot be found in 1870 or 1880 even by their first names alone and birth years.
The 1870 census has an Alex Holmes also born Canada, but he's 10 years older, and has a different wife and children. This Alex is 48 (b. 1822) b. Canada, a teamster, with wife Rose A., 26 and children Louisa, 8; Hattie, 7; Mary J., 3; and Alex, six mos.

- St. Lawrence Republican, Aug. 15, 1865: Ogdensburg: On Saturday evening an unfortunate occurence which ended in a fracas and fatal termination to one of the parties took place at Prescott, just across the St. Lawrence from this place. So far as we have been able to learn particulars, a man named Mason, who lived six miles back of Prescott, engaged another man, Alexander Holmes, who keeps a small grocery and a one-horse passenger vehicle, to carry him and an acquaintance home. Holmes got his horse and wagon and went to the appointed meeting place to get his passengers, who appeared to be considerably intoxicated. Holmes demanded pay in advance, which being refused, he declined going and returned to his own place, where it appears he was followed by the men. Words of an angry and excited character ensued, when Mason grabbed a weight and threw it at Holmes. This assault was followed by another with a stone ginger beer bottle. Holmes then caught up the ginger beer bottle and struck Mason in the side of the head and fractured his skull so that he died at seven o'clock Sunday morning. Mason leaves a wife and one child. Holmes formerly lived in this place but having been drawn in the first draft, skedaddled to Prescott where he has since remained. An inquest returned a verdict of justifiable homicide.

The Lisbon Centre, Heuvelton and Morristown buglars arrested

About noon Monday a clue was struck by the police of the thieves who committed the burglary on the store of Wilon & Co., of Morristown, and before four p. m. the following named parties were taken into custody: John Gay, Jr., Wm. Kane, Wm. Perkins, Alexander Holmes, Edward Holmes, Jacob Holmes, Mrs. Jacob Holmes, and John Wicks. The items have been recovered which were taken from Lisbon Centre, Heuvelton and Morristown; and disclosures made which shall result in the breaking up of a gang of newly formed burglars, and restoring the stolen property to the rightful owners.
A partial examination of the prisoners was had before the justice of the peace Monday afternoon.
We learn from the following additional particulars of the Morristown burglary: Friday afternoon two men, entire strangers, called a this store and enquired for gloves. They looked the goods over but did not purchase. One was a large, man who wore his coat closely buttoned up to his chin. In tracing them in this direction the horses stolen from tho farm of Mr. Halliday were found abandoned near J . D . Soper's. It is supposed that the thieves, finding day light approaching, secreted the goods and turned loose the horses.
Near the Stilwell bill, further this way, some oyster crackers were found on the road. At the time they were discovered it was not known that any crackers had been taken from the store. But subsequent investigation showed that some oyster crackers kept in the cellar had been broken open and a quantity carried off. This trace went to show that the burglars kept on in this direction, and probably came to Ogdensburg. It is thought they are the same parties who committed the burglary at Pickens' store, Heuvelton.

- For future research reference: The 1870 census lists another Alex Holmes, 48, (b. 1832) residing Town of Oswegatchie, teamster, b. Canada, with wife, Rose A., b. Canada, and children Louisa, 8, Hattie, 7, Mary J, 3, and Alex, 6 mos, all born NY. There also is reference in various newspapers to an Alex Holmes who resided at Morrisburg, Ontario, right across from Waddington, who had a son he often visited in Chase Mills named Hermon Holmes. That Alex died Dec. 27, 1929 at age 84 (b. 1844). Death notice says he was born at Chesterville, Ontario, was a laborer, lived at Morrisburg all his life, and died at the House of Refuge at Cornwall, was bured in Morrisburg Dec. 28, 1929.

- 1860 Census: Harriet, 20, and daughter Caroline E. Thayer, 2, reside with John Thayer, 26, his wife Caroline, 24, and their daughter Roda Ann at Fowler, NY, St. Lawrence County, close to where Robert Thayer is working on the Oliver Lennox farm in Dekalb. Oliver is married to Robert's older sister, Julia.

- Harriet Thayer's death record from the Ogdensburg City Clerk states that her father was John Rehor and that her mother was Mary, both were born in Canada.

- According to Jennifer Gonnuscio, descended from Robert/Harriet's daughter Caroline, Harriet was residing in Toledo in 1896 when she witnessed her daughter's widow's pension. However, we know she was in Ogdensburg in 1890 and in 1900, because she is listed in both those city directories as boarding at 85 King St. and working as a laundrywoman. It is likely she returned to Ogdensburg prior to 1886, when her daughter Delia married at age 17 in June of that year.

- Ogdensburg Daily Journal: May 5, 1900: The funeral of Mrs. Harriet Thayer took place this morning from the Congregational Church, Rev. A. M. Weight officiating. The remains were sent to Gouverneur, the former home of the deceased, for interment.

- A document, "Special Schedule-Surviving Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines and Widows, etc." filed in June, 1890 in the Ogdensburg Civil Division, shows: "Harriet, widow of John Thayer, private, 16NY Inf., enlisted 1861."

- Daily Journal: May 9, 1900: Gouverneur, May 7: Mrs. Harriet Thayer, mother of A. F. Thayer of this place, died at the home of her son, John Thayer, at Ogdensburg, Thursday (May 3.) Mrs. Thayer resided in this place for many years. Her maiden name was Rehor, and she was born at Ogdensburg 63 years ago (1837.) Internment will be in Riverside Cemetery here tomorrow afternoon. Three sons, A. F. of Gouverneur, John and Charles Thayer of Ogdensburg, and a daughter, Mrs. Carrie Rooney, of Toledo, Ohio, survive.

With them are John Warren, 18, and Alex Warren, 16. Alex Warren is actually Alex Walling, Josephine's half-brother; John Warren may also be a half-brother Walling. Alex is a farm laborer; John is a RR employee.
All of the children were born NY, which implies that Ira and Martha Field(s) had daughter Mary in 1866 at Canton. It may be that Martha died in childbirth or shortly thereafter. Josephine says she entered U.S. in 1867, likely St. Lawrence County.

- St. Lawrence Republican, Canton, NY, Wednesday, Nov. 22, 1876
Headline: THE CAPTURED BURGLARS; The Disclosures made; Two gangs operate in Heuvelton the same night.
Ogdensburgh: It is well known to our readers that burglaries have recently been committed at Lisbon Centre, two at Heuvelton - one in the store of Mr. Rieb, and the other in the post office - and one at Morristown in the store of Wilson & Co. It was the belief of all the persons robbed that the burglars came from this city. The Morristown burglary was committed Friday night, and the thieves were tracked this way.
Mr. Wilson came here Saturday morning and employed Constable King to assist in the search for the thieves and stolen property. He came again Monday morning on the same business. There are various reports as to the discovery of the first clue to the scamps but about two p.m. there was great excitement on South Water Street, occasioned by the rapid movements of constables Newton, Tyndall and King, and Policeman Bunnell, in the direction of Pious Hollow. Soon after it was announced that the Morristown burglars had been arrested.
It appears that Edward Holmes, whose people live at the foot of Caroline street, had been taken into custody and a considerable portion of the goods stolen from Morristown found in his father's house. He said the goods were brought there by Wm. Kane, John Guy, Jr., and William Perkins, who engaged him to sell them for twenty percent on the dollar.
The Holmses, consisting of father, mother, and two sons, were all taken into custody. A lad named John Wicks, a. nephew to Jacob Holmes, the father, was also arrested. It was information communicated by Holmes that started the police in so great a hurry to Pious Hollow. Guy and Perkins were easily secured, but a second trip had to be made to capture Kane, who had secreted himself under tbe old distillery. On the last trip Edward Holmes accompanied the police to show them where some of the property not yet discovered was secreted.
When all were arrested and taken to the Town House, and the examination commenced, Edward Holmes, Guy and Kane were disposed to be communicative. Their stories did not quite agree, but enough was told to show that Holmes,Guy and Kane committed the burglary at Lisbon Centre. Guy gave the particulars as to how it was done, and Kane agreed with him. Holmes, Kane, Guy and Perkins committed the burglary on Rich's store at Heuvelton; all were in the store. A silver hunting watch was stolen there. Holmes took it and gave Guy one he had in his possession before the robbery, and which, he alleges, was given to him by another thief named Stratton. All of the parties deny having had anything to do with the robbery of the post office at Heuvelton on the same night. Holmes says it was committed by Stratton, of Canada, and Wilsie, of Chicago, who went ahead of them, and did not return here.
The burglary at Morristown was committed by Holmes, Kane, Gay and Perkins. Another party named John Goodrich went up with them. He did not enter the store, but started back while the others committed the robbery. Holmes denies having had anything to do with this robbery but Kane and Guy say he put up the job, and was the master of the ceremonies. In this robbery tbey had a dark lantern to use. They went in through the cellar. On their return they went into the barn of Mr. Halliday and took out a span of horses, and getting on double, rode them to John D. Soper's, where they abandoned them and came on afoot. Kane, Guy and Perkins secreted their part of the plunder near the ship yard, and went back Saturday night and brought it away. Holmes had his in a traveling bag and took it home. The property recovered consisted of jewelry, knives, spoons, forks, tobacco, cigars, boots, silk handkerchiefs, dress goods, coats, candles, and etc.
It appears from the disclosures made that Holmes, Stratton and Wilsie are the parties who broke jail recently at Cornwall, Ont. Holmes came here and his father's family moved here about the same time. He does not appear to have been long in organizing a gang and engaging in his old business, and we suspect his operation at Heuvelton that night was to cover the tracks of the shrewder and more accomplished thieves who robbed the post office and carried off a considerable amount of money.
He is a young man about 21 years of age, tall and slim, and has red hair. There is a report afloat that, ascertaining his new associates had made arrangements to kidnap and "give him away," for the purpose of obtaining tbe reward offered for his apprehension in Canada, he "blew" on them. Be this as it may, the police lost no time in capturing the whole party, and thus broke up a gang which had set out on a desperate career. They are entitled to great credit for their prompt and successful action.
FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS
The developments of Tuesday led to the recovery of more stolen property. Among it was a single-barreled, cheap-made shotgun, some seamless bags, and a black oilcloth satchel filled with dry goods.
The Holmes family are considerably mixed in their names. The young man's - Edward - real name is Edward Nash. He is a son of Mrs. Holmes' by a former husband. Another member of this family is Doty Smith.

- 1870 census: Joseph Holmes, 39, resides in the Town of Fine, St. Lawrence County, NY, married to to Lucy, 36, with children Ellen J., 13; George, 9; and Fred, 3. He is a laborer.

- 1880 census: Joseph Holmes, 48, resides in the Town of Pitcairn, St. Lawrence County, with wife Lucy, 47. and son George, 19, and son Freddie, 18.

Joseph Holmes served in the Civil War. He enlisted as a private Aug. 31, 1863 at the age of 37 (should be 27) at Pitcairn, NY. He was assigned to Company H, 20th Cavalry Reginment, New York, Sept. 4, 1863. He was mustered out of that company on June 9, 1865, at Albany, NY.

- Jan. 22, 1896: Canton, Jan. 15.-At nine this morning No. 30, Joseph Holmes vs. Clark Bowman was placed on trial. This is an action in ejectment. It was conceded that at one time plaintiff was the owner, and in possession of the premises in controversy. Defendants offered in evidence a judgment of foreclosure and sale, and it was conceded that their possession was obtained by virtue of this foreclosure. Plaintiff's theory is that the property in question was paid for with pension money. He then gave a mortgage on this property, a house, and lot in Gouverneur village, and on his interest as tenant by courtesy in seven acres more. The mortgage was foreclosed, and the house and lot sold first. The other property was then sold, and a surplus over the amount due realized, no part of which surplus ever came to his hands. The plaintiff was the only witness sworn in his own behalf and on the question of wha t kind of money went into the property. At the close of his evidence defendants moved for a non-suit. The court ruled that there was no question for the jury and he would hear argument on the law in the case. After such argument the court announced that the pension exemption was intended as a shield and not as an instrument for defrauding creditors. It appeared tha t the pension money was paid into a farm in Pitcairn, the title to which was in the wife of plaintiff. It was sold and was worth several times the amount of pension money paid in. As a part of the consideration for the Pitcairn land this property was obtained. Part of the money obtained on the giving of the mortgage was used to pay for the property. The Legislature intends that the pensioner may waive the exemption it has granted him, and the giving of a mortgage upon the exempt property is the highest evidence of such a waiver. The contention of plaintiff would work an injustice if allowed, and the complaint should he dismissed.

Anyway, Smith caused the arrest of Holmes for stealing a pig pen and hen park. Holmes had a jury trial and was acquitted, and wants five dollars to pay for defending himself, and $295 for the laceration of his feelings. Smith was not present at all, and no evidence was offered on behalf of the defence. Within a half hour of the time they were impaneled, the jurors had commeneed their deliberations. It did not take them long to assess the damages of the plaintiff at the princely sum of $10.

- Abt. 1857 at age 21, Julia marries Oliver Lennox, 10 years her senior and the father of two children, Charlotte, 5, and Alonzo, 1. The next year, in 1858, they have a son, James. In the 1860 census in St. Lawrence County on a farm are Oliver Lenox, 34, b. Canada; Julia Lenox, 24, Charlotte Lenox, 8, Alanza Lenox, 4, all born Canada; and, James F. Lenox, 2, b. NY.

Canada, who is employed on the farm while his wife, Harriet Rehor, lives nearby with their first child.

- Some time after 1860, they return to Ontario, Canada, setting in a community called Mountain, which is about 20 miles north of Prescott, and had additional children.

- Oliver Lennox was born July, 1825 and died April 1, 1912 at Mountain, Dundas, Ontario, age 87. He was son of James Lennox, who was born in Ireland.

- Julia Lennox died Oct. 11, 1913, at South Gower, Grenville County, Ont. as a widow. Her father's name was John and her mother's name was Nancy. Her physician was from South Mountain. She was born in 1836, and died at age 77 years, 11 months and 11 days. Name of informant is John Lennox of Kemptville, Ontario.

- 1891 census of Canada: In Mountain, Dundas, Ont., we have Oliver Lenox, 66; Julia, 56; Zina, 20; and Aikin, 16. Next door are their son John Lenox, 31; with Margaret, 26; James A., 5, and Maud E, 3. Oliver was born Ont., as were Zina and Aikin but Julia says she was born Quebec.

- 1901 census of Canada: Oliver Lennox, born July 28, 1822, in Ontario and is 78, and Julia, born Oct. 21, 1836, in Quebec is 64.

- 2014 from Doug Thayer: I have found the baptism of “Julia” daughter of Baptiste Terre and Adelaide Brunette.. in Notre Dame d’Ottawa so it appears JB and Nancy were in Ottawa around the same time as his dad Edward … this was before the church in Aylmer opened. If there was any remaining doubt with regard to John being JB and Nancy being Adelaide Brunette this should pretty well close that door.

- 2014 from Frank Thayer: The sponsors at Julia’s baptism were Joseph Timmins and Margaret Aspeck. Those two were both from around St Andrews East. Joseph’s parents were not given at his wedding with Margaret in 1825 in St Andrews East Anglican, but he was probably a grandson of the first Timmins/Timmons who came to Canada from the USA. Margaret “Aspeck’s” mother was Marie-Amable-Louise Morin-dit-Valcourt, the sister (or half-sister) of Marie-Anne Morin-dit-Valcourt, Antoine/Edward’s wife. Marie-Amable-Louise was married to George Hirschbeck (aka Hershback. Haspeck, Aspect, Aspeck) George Hirschbeck, (correct spelling) like my own grgreatgrandfather was a German auxiliary soldier who came to Canada during the American revolution. A dozen or so of those soldiers settled in the St Andrews East area. While Hirschbeck and the Morin girl were probably married in a Protestant church (place and date unknown), all their children of record were baptized in the R.C. churches around St Andrews East, just like most of the German children, including my own family, were baptized in the Catholic religion even though the marriage might have taken place in a Protestant church.

- A Declaration for Pension says that his birthdate is 2 Sep 1845, but a later application says that it is really 2 Sep 1844.

Ogdensburg Cemetary stone is located at R-10,L-41: Eathan A. Como D. 8/15/1910 Aged 66 C.E. 142 Regt. N.Y. Vol Inf. G.A.R." and "Letitia Burke Wife of Eathan Aged 69 Died Nov 17 1923"

- Death certificate, NYS Bureau of Vital Statistics: Ethan Allen Como, of 3 Elizabeth St. in Ogdensburg, N.Y. died on 15 Aug 1910. His age was 66 years, 11 months, 13 days. He was married at the time. His father was Nelson Como (born in Canada) and his mother was Maria Holmes (born in New York state). Cause of death was Bright's disease.

- Ogd. Advance of Aug. 18, 1910, states Eathen A. Como died at the family home on Elizabeth Street Monday night after a long illness, aged 65 (which would put birth year at 1845). Deceased was engaged in the painting business and was widely known. He was a Civil War veteran, having served in the 142nd Regt. NY Vol. and was a member of Ransom Post, GAR, the Free Masons, and Odd Fellows. He was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and a man of fine character. His wife and daughter, Miss Stella Como, survive, also a brother, Nelson Como of this city."

- There is some evidence that Eathen lied to get into the Army during the Civil War. Jimmie Hoadley told us that story. His only child had only one child which died before having children, so there are no living descendents of Eathen Como.

- Eathan was baptized Aug. 13, 1876, as an adult, in the Ogdensburg Methodist Church.

(Note: There is a gravestone next to those of Eathen and Letitia Como, identified by Anne Cady in her listing and photos of Ogdensburg Cemtery stones, as that of Henry A. Como. In fact, this stone is for Henry A. Camp, who drowned June 17, 1870 at age 12 in the Oswegatchie River near the Lake Street bridge. Letitia was a domestic servant for the Camp family before her marriage and it appears that she and her husband caused the stone to be erected, since the Camp family apparently could not afford one. The body of Henry Camp was carried out into the St. Lawrence River and found several weeks later near Massena, NY, where it was reportedly buried due to decomposition. Whether Henry was actually reinterred at Ogdensburg is unknown.)
