  5. Philip, born 7 July 1817; died 14 July 1904, buried at Burtts Corner, York, New Brunswick, Canada; married Lavina Gould, 9 January 1850.

He was born c1820, New Brunswick, Canada; died 13 July 1900, New Brunswick, Canada. They were the parents of at least four children and possibly several more, given the age gaps in their children.

She was born 9 May 1844, new Brunswick, Canada; died 14 August 1926, New Brunswick, Canada. When looking at this family, Richard appears to have married (1) Ruth, who was still alive in 1871. Also, he appears to be the same man in 1871 and 1881, but the children’s names don’t match at all either unless they all switched and used middle names. More work needs to be done here.

  4. Peter, born 14 February 1821; died 14 July 1903, Ontario, Canada; married Catherine Elizabeth Siple, 25 August 1851, Ontario, Canada. she was born 8 July 1832, Ontario, Canada; died about 11 March 1911, Ontario, Canada. They had at least seven children.
  5. Philip, born 4 December 1824; died 21 September 1913, Ontario, Canada; married Alice Lunn, c1857, probably Ontario, Canada. She was born c1833/1837, Scotland; died 25 August 1913, Ontario, Canada. They had two daughters, Margaret and Alice.
  6. Rhoda, born 26 August 1826; died 17 May 1875, Ontario, Canada; reportedly married John  Menhennick, 15 March 1859. He was born c1824, England; died 26 December 1902, Ontario, Canada. However, John’s wife in the census records is consistently Mary. More work needs to be done on this family.
  7. Emma, born 1 February 1828; married David Frazee, Ontario, Canada. He was born 12 April 1823; died 8 September 1898. They had five children. There is a marriage record for David Frazee to Sarah Ann McQuarrie in December 1850, but Emma is his wife in 1851 and in later censuses. I wonder if the registrar inserted the wrong bride’s name in the official register? There is no marriage for an Emma to David before or after the Sarah entry, but one of their son’s marriage records names his parents as David Frazee and Emma Allen.
  8. Hepzibah, born 12 April 1829; died after 1901 census, probably in Ontario, Canada; married Jeremiah Morehouse, 21 August 1859, New Brunswick, Canada. He was born 22 November 1827, New Brunswick, Canada; died 28 September 1911, Ontario, Canada. They had at least four children.
