Have not posted here in almost ten years. I'm looking for any information and/or any existing descendants of Avery and Pheobe Hamilton of Goodwood Ontario.

I do not know Avery's birth place or date. I believe he died in Goodwood about 1895. Phoebe was born about 1833 and died about 1909, I think. Both are buried in the cemetery at Goodwood as far as I know.

One child was James (my great grandfather), born 10/15/1857 in Goodwood, died 6/15/1894 in Coronado Beach Florida, married Carrie Gifford of Newport Rhode Island. Other children of Avery and Phoebe were Robert, Ezea, and Phoebe. I don't know information on any of them.

Another family member will be visiting the Goodwood area in September and wants to make contact with any existing descendants who are interested in making contact.

I want to add information about Avery and Phoebe to my FTM files, since I have so little information about them. Basically, I only know that Avery helped form a Baptist church with others and that his son James became a noted Baptist minister here in the US.

Thanks and regards,

Frank Comstock
