Children of Abraham Martin , Ontario, 1841+

Research into the birth years of the children of Abraham Martin, living in Mono Mills and then Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Abraham’s most famous child is Clara Brett Martin. Her death record gives her birth as 1874. This appears credible because the informant was her brother Joseph. But the 1881 census lists her as 14, i.e. born in 1867. Her Find A Grave: Memorial #216127603 gives her birth as 1864 based on the 1871 census for Abraham, listing Caraline age 6 (birth 1865) and presumably the assumption that Joseph got it wrong by 10 years. And yes I didn't think the name variation was reasonable until I researched her brothers and found Joseph H in 1880 age 18 (living with his brother James) nearly the same birth year as Garibaldy age 2 in 1861 and Joseph Garabalo age 12 in 1871 but not close to the age of Joseph Havelock whose death record gives his birth both as 1872 and 1878.
