I'm really stuck on this brick wall. Henry Prince and Sarah Jane Elson would have married in Ontario, probably in the late 1850s (based on their first child being born in August 1860). I've looked on FamilySearch and Ancestry and have been unable to find a marriage record, so I'm hoping that someone with access to other resources can help me out. This could be the key to finding Sarah Jane's parents!

Here's what I know:

Henry Prince was born around 1834 in England, the son of Joseph Prince and Elizabeth (surname unknown).

Sarah Jane Elson was born around 1839 in Ontario.

Their first child was born August 24, 1860 (I think I got that date from a census, so it might not be exact), in Ontario.

For everything I know, including links to census records, see Sarah Jane Elson's WikiTree profile: and Henry Prince's WikiTree profile:

I'm hoping to find Sarah Jane Elson's parents, and I'm hoping that their names will be on Sarah Jane's marriage record. Any help finding this record would be greatly appreciated!
