  • Notes 

    • 1878 - 1881 Marriages

      #010727-78 (Victoria Co): George Milas? SWITZER, 29, yeoman, Canada, Fenelon, s/o Jacob & Elizabeth, married Jemima Jane SWITZER, 34, widow, Loburn?, Fenelon, d/o Lorenzo & Margaret RUTTAN, witnesses were Micha & Mary Jane SWITZER of Fenelon, Feb. 18, 1878 at Fenelon Falls.

    Married:
    • Jemima married (2) 18 Feb. 1878, George Miles Switzer, David's first cousin at Fenelon Falls Ontatio, Witness Micah Switzer (Brother of Jemima's first husband,) Mary Jane ( probably Sara Jane wife of Micah.)
      Jemima Jane Switzer nee Ruttan Daughter of Lorenzo Ruttan and Margaret Harpel and widow of David Switzer.
      (Jemima must have neglected to inform the Minister that she was a widow as church records show that she was daughter to Lorenzo and Margaret Switzer, instead of Lorenzo and Margaret Ruttan) David's brother Micah was living in Fenelon Township ( where George lived ) so it is likely that Jemima met George through her brother-in-law. David and Jemima's two children are listed in the 1881 Fenelon township census with George and Jemima.
