Hi William,

There is a death record for Hiram in ON

He died May 2, 1895, Wentworth Co. ON

Ontario, Canada, Deaths, 1869-1938 and Deaths Overseas, 1939-1947 about Hiram King

the image says:

1861 DUNDAS, WENTWORTH, CANADA WEST
KING
Hiram, age 54, gentleman, born USA

Hannah, age 39, born Canada

GOULD
Sarah Ann, age 19, born Canada (listed as single)

KING
Cecelia, age 15, born Canada

«yrus, age 12, born Canada

There is a marriage for Cyrus King of Hamilton to Elizabeth Alberta Gage
His parents shown as Henry and Hannah King, hers Peter and Henrietta Gage.
marriage date June 10, 1875, Hamilton

I know the name Henry is not right, but age for Cyrus is 26 and he was born Dundas, ON so that all fits

Cecelia died June 19, 1912, age 65 years, single
she is shown as daughter of Hiram King born USA and Hannah Cooper born Canada
she died of anaemia secondary to some internal malignant trouble, duration several months
certified by Sarah Gould

1901 HAMILTON, ON
GOULD
Sarah, age 59, head, born July 4, 1841 ON

KING
«elia, age 54, cousin, born Dec. 13, 1846 ON

odd she's shown as cousin, not sister

There is also a death for a Cyrus King, age 71 years 11 months, died

he is shown born April 16, 1849 Dundas, ON
died Feb. 2, 1921 Hamilton
Father Hyram King, born Scotland
mother unknown
informant - Mrs. «yrus King (so I guess she didn't know much about his parents as she has birthplace wrong for Hyram)
Cyrus died of cardiac renal disease - 10 years, but death is listed as sudden death, cardiac failure


1911 HAMILTON WEST, ONTARIO
143 EAST HUNTER
GOULD
Sarah, age 69, own income, born July 1841 ON

KING
Cecelia, age 65, own income, born Dec. 1845 ON

I'm a bit confused by Martha Woolever of PA

The «yrus who died in ON and shown as son of Hyram is in ON with his wife Alberta/Bertha from 1881 census on

and
the Cyrus who seems to be married to Martha is in PA census
1880 - they are in Plunketts «reek, Lycoming PA
children William 8, George 7, Harrie 5, and Oscar 1
Hattie was born Canada the rest of kids born PA

1900 - they are in McIntyre, Lycoming, PA
children William 25, Raleigh 17, Bessie 15, Harry 13, Abbie 8, and Bruce 6

in this one all children born PA and Cyrus is shown born Aug. 1849 Canada French which generally means Quebec

1910 - they are in Davidson, Sullivan, PA
Cyrus again shown born Canada French
children Abbie 18 and Bruce 16

So I am now wondering if this Cyrus was born in Quebec or possibly one of the Atlantic provinces where French was also spoken.

I have tried to find a death for Cyrus - husband of Martha but so far hve had no luck. I thought it might have his parents names.
