    Date Feb 4 1783 per IGI Record.; Principal=Sarah Richardson1,2,3
  • Marriage*: circa 1815; Upper Canada; "Before 1790 Matthias and Sarah were in the Bay of Quinte area, and Sarah is supposed to have drowned in the Trent River in 1810. While not a lot is known about her, Matthias's second wife was reportedly a Mrs. Dickson." per FindaGrave for Mathias Marsh.

  • Burial*: 19 June 1829; White's Cemetery, Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Upper Canada; FindaGrave: Name: Mathias Marsh; BIRTH: 1763, Vermont, USA; DEATH: 1829 (aged 65–66), Ontario, Canada; BURIAL:
    Whites Cemetery, Bayside, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada; MEMORIAL ID: 172805996; Note: By the time the American Revolution broke out, Matthias Marsh UE was residing with his parents in Manchester, a town in the future Vermont. His parents were William Marsh 1738-1816 and Sarah French 1741-1820. William began the War as an officer in the Green Mountain Boys hence the designation "Colonel" which stuck with him. In 1777 William switched to the British and for the duration of the War and indeed afterwards he worked in the Secret Service and was back and forth between Vermont and Quebec a number of times. Matthias was born in 1763 so still quite young when the War began. He never joined a Loyalist Corps, and he remained in the Manchester area during the War. Why then was he retained on The Executive Council List and not expunged as so many sons of Loyalists were? The picture that is emerging is that he was involved on site with the Secret Service work for his father and would have been well placed to know many of the key players such as the Allens. Matthias married Sarah Richardson in Manchester in 1783. Sarah was the daughter of Nathan Richardson a Rebel originally from Connecticut.
    Before 1790 Matthias and Sarah were in the Bay of Quinte area, and Sarah is supposed to have drowned in the Trent River in 1810. While not a lot is known about her, Matthias's second wife was reportedly a Mrs. Dickson. Matthias resided in Sidney Township, Hastings County. In 1801 he proposed the first bridge over the Trent River, but it was left to the next generation to complete the project. Matthias was dead by 1829 and he is likely buried in Whites Cemetery just east of Trenton. Matthias's most famous descendant is the Rt. Hon. Lester B. Pearson.

  • Married Name: circa 1760; Marsh
  • Note*: circa 1820; Manchseter Centre, Manchester co., Vermont, U.S.A.; "Note: Jeremiah French, the father of Sarah French Marsh, gave Sarah the right to 150 acres near the center of Manchester Center. On her death, the land was to be equally divided among her children. Each of the ten children had the right to choose a “pitch” of land at the time of Sarah’s death (which was in 1820), but in the meantime Sarah would presumably collect the rents from the land. There developed a bit of a trade in those rights among the family and near relatives. Fortunately, the odd arrangement has left a trail of deeds among the Marshes. For convenience, I call this Sarah’s Land rights." per "Record of William S. Marsh" sent to me by Wilson Brown, Jan 21, 2008.4

    Note: Wilson Brown suggests that there are two Johnson Marsh's we are dealing with, based on records for Johnson Marsh and sons John and George in Vermont as late as the early 1840's. Research in Ontario suggests that this is, in fact, the Johnson Marsh who was a son of Col. William Marsh and Sarah French. He and his family remained in Vermont until they obtained land grants in St. Vincent Twp, Grey Co., Ontario, namely Conc 12, Lot 6.

It was quite good land, particularly to the west. The eastern mountains are Green Mountains, steep, with acidic soils, while Morse Hill and Dorset Mtn to the west are part of the Taconic range, and are less steep, and limey. The center of Dorset is what was called Dorset Mtn, now Mt. Aeolus, and its core is marble. The house William Marsh owned is still there, and I think Johnson was probably living in it in 1820. The Deming house, also mentioned in the census, is also still there. On the 1810 census, Col. Marsh himself is there and just north are his daughter Charlotte and husband, Jesse Southwick and 7 of their kids.

He had acquired the Assignments for the Crown Land Grants that were due his sister Elizabeth (Marsh) Sexton and his sister-in-law Jane (Ostram) Marsh and was asking for an extension of the time stipulated for completing Settlement Duties. Jonathan Sexton had died much earlier and Elizabeth would die in 1841. Samuel Marsh, husband of Jane Ostram, had died in 1820.11
  • Residence: 1843; Conc 12 Lot 6, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Ontario; "BIOGRAPHY: "Asa had become unhappy with conditions in Carrying Place and Brighton, and had been looking for opportunities that might come along. Grey County had been open to prospective settlers for about twenty years. There was still crown land available and the prospects for successful venture looked good.
    Asa applied for and received a land grant in St. Vincent Township. The grant had been obtained through his efforts at Toronto. The crown had granted him the east half of lots 7 and 8 in the XIIth Concessions. We think Asa had visited the land in 1858. He probably travelled by rail to Collingwood, and by steamship to Meaford. For the rest of the trip he may have rented a horse and wagon in Meaford and driven to his property. The 15, 16 sideroad, and the Xith line road and possibly part of 9, 10 sideroad would have been passable at that time."
    BIOGRAPHY: Exerpt from the "Weller Family History," Volume 2 by Burton Weller Eagles." and .... "His aunt, (Hannah's sister), Elizabeth (Marsh) Sexton, was granted Lot 5, Conc 12 and Hannah's brother, Johnson Marsh was granted Lot 6, Conc 12, in 1843
    In 1862 Johnson's son owned Lot 6, conc 12 and the NW corner of Lot 5, and Johnson owned the east part of Lot 5 and the west part of Lots 7,8. John Marsh went there in 1843 (see account of trip at John Marsh)" per GEDCOM of Kevin Handy, Mar 18 2007.
  • Census: 1851; St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Ontario; Age 70 at 1851 Census: see John Marsh (son)3
  • Residence*: 6 March 1851; Conc 12 Lot 5, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (Patent) show that Johnson Marsh received the Patent from the Crown for all 200 acres of Conc 12, Lot 5, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Inst. Date Mar 6 1851.

  • Residence: 9 June 1852; Conc 12 Lot 5, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (B&S 723) show that Johnson Marsh sold to Daniel Brand the west 37 acres of Conc 12, Lot 5, Inst. Date: Junm 9 1852.
    Note: The name Daniel Brand is interesting since a grandson of Johnson Marsh was named Dnaiel Brand Marsh.4
  • Residence: 5 October 1855; Conc 12 Lot 5, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (B&S 116 1088) show that Johnson Marsh sold 163 acres of Conc 12, Lot 5, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co. to Jabez Moore, Inst. Oct 5 1855.4

  • Note: circa 1870; Port Sarnia, Ontario; "His youngest son Johnson, went back to Vermont and lived there many years, and then returned to Canada, settling at Port Sarnia where he died about thirty years ago, having nearly reached 100 years of age. From his papers, as well as from my father, I obtained the information which I am trying to give of the early history of the Family." (from "Recollections 1837 - 1910, by C. W. Marsh - Autobiograhy", a copy found in Jean Anderson's papers)
    Note: C. W. Marsh was Charles Welsey Marsh (1837-1918), son of Samuel Marsh and Tamar Richardson; born at Sidney, moved to DeKalb Co., Illinois as a child in 1849.
  • Census: April 1871; Collingwood, Grey North Co., Ontario; Age 95 at 1871 Census: Marsh, Johnson, 95, b. USA, Eng., Gentleman - 1871 Census Index Online, Div. 76, C-99536
  • Note: circa 1872; Ontario; "His youngest son Johnson, went back to Vermont and lived there many years, and then returned to Canada, settling at Port Sarnia where he died about thirty years ago, having nearly reached 100 years of age. From his papers, as well as from my father, I obtained the information which I am trying to give of the early history of the Family." per "Recollections 1837-1910 By C. W. Marsh - Autobiography", part of Jean Anderson's Papers in my possession.
    Note: This info suggests C. W. Marsh was writing this in 1902. The Death Registration of Johnson Marsh shows that he was age 92 in 1872. Also, the location of Port Sarnia seems wrong. The Death Registration is simply St. Vincent Twp. where he lived - that's a long way away from Sarnia.
