Elizabeth Florence Reids was born in New Bradford and the family is living in Innisfill in the 1881 census. Mary Rennie married George William Reids in 1875 in W. Gwillimbury. In the 1881 census they are living near Mary Rennie's sister, Jane Rennie Thorpe and her husband in Innisfill. Mary and Jane Rennie's brother George is living with Jane Rennie Thorpe and her husband (spelling Rainey).
Both of these families later moved to Markham. My father, Albert Edward Pogue, was the only son of Elizabeth Florence Reids and Wilson Pogue and was born in Etobicoke in March of 1901. He spent his early summers in Little Britain with his grandparents, James and Martha Pogue.
Unfortunately, the spelling of Reids is different on different records. On the marriage license in Bradford in 1875 it is spelled Reads. On George Reids death record it is spelled Reids, but the cemetery has it listed under Reid. Their son William George Reids is listed correctly as is my grandmother and my great Uncle, Albert J. Reids. Albert moved to New York around 1912 and became a U.S. citizen in 1918. He lived with me the last three years of his life and was able to pass on a great deal of personal family information.
I still have no "proof" that Margaret's last name was Sexton. Only that it was passed on to me by two different relatives who had done genealogy. Their records have been very accurate as I have verified the data they provided. I know James and Martha Jane Mortimer lived on the property that Samuel Sexton had received as a land grant in Mariposa.
