    Welcome to the British-Genealogy forums kh greer

    I have moved your post to the Canada forum where hopefully it will receive more attention than in the Introduce Yourself forum which is just for doing that.
    I will take a look and see if I can find anything. Others will be along when they wake up over the ditch I'm sure

    George Greer the one in the 1851 census in Manvers Durham County Canada West (Ontario)? Age 59, a labourer. Born Ireland
    Margaret Greer age next birthday 50 born Ireland.
    John Dunbar born c1827 Ireland,
    Jane Dunbar c1829 Ireland,
    Sarah Dunbar c 1831 Ireland
    George Greer c1834 ??
    Mary Ann c 1840 ??
    Margaret c 1843 Manvers

    I can't make out the birthplace for George and Mary Ann. To me it looks like Cavan which is Ireland but that may just be because I have been researching in that county of Ireland. Do you know what it says?

    Can you confirm the dates for George Greer's birth and death. You say born 1792, died 1904, that would mean he was 112 when he died! I'm wondering if it was his son George who died in 1904.

    Name: George Greer, 69yrs, born abt 1835 Cavan; died 24 Dec 1904, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada
    Cause of Death: Argonic Disease of Stomach

    There is a Cavan in Ontario wouldn't you know so that is probably where young George and Mary Ann were born

    George age 80 and Margaret 65 are still in Grey North (Holland) in 1871, indexed as GRIER.
