I am researching and writing about the wives of Thomas Dorland.  Tabitha Pugsley seems to have been his forst wife of three.

I'd like to find out more about her and her family.

Any help would be appreciated.

Was he born in 1842 at Upper Canada (Canada West) now Ontario? Would he have been living at Prince Edward, Ontario at the time of the 1861 Census?

Do you have a marriage year for Tabitha and a location?

Did Thomas Dorland live in Ontario all of his life or did he relocate, if so where?

Thank you.
No, this Thomas Dorland was born in 1759, and died in 1832 in Adolphustown, ON.  He came to Canada in 1784 with his two brothers and a couple of sisters.

Tabitha Pugsley married Thomas in 1784, died in 1790.  She was the first of 4 wives, so it appears.

Any info about her would be helpful.

An Ancestral File has Tabitha Pugsley born about 1760 Dutchess, NY and died 4 Mar 1790. The file gives a marriage year for her of 1785 to Thomas Dorland. Children are Samuel born 7 Jun 1786 and Deborah born 19 Jan 1787. 

Another child was born about 1800 which is 10 years after Tabitha's death. His name is Peter Vanalstine Dorland.
