  • Note: 1844; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; The King family moved from Northport, Sophiasburg Township, Prince Edward County to Cramahe Township in Northumberland County. The land where they settled would become part of the newly created Brighton Township in 1852 and the southern edge of their property would be sold for village lots as the village of Codrington took shape in the 1860s and 1870s.
  • Census: June 1852; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 16 at 1851 Census: see George King7
  • Occupation*: 6 January 1858; Postmaster, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Canada West; The National Archives of Canada show that Isaac King was Postmaster at Codrington from June 1, 1858 until March 1859 when it says he "Left the province". This matches with information from William Henry King's murder trial that Isaac was in California at the time of his arrest, trial and execution.
    Note: Sorry. This does not altogether match. Sarah King died Nov 4 1858 and the trial was April 4 1859, hanging June 9th. It is hard to imagine that Isaac would have gone to California AFTER his brother was arrested. Maybe he left in Sep 1858 or so and would have been gone for the whole thing - the dates re the post office lagging in the records???
  • Residence: 11 February 1859; Michigan Bar, California, U.S.A.; "To My Parents; Dear Parents, to you who has been so kind and who has undergone so many troubles and heardships for my own good, I feel it my duty as I have arived at the age of twenty three to give you the credit and Honour off my ariving to this age without one blemished or guilty stain to encounter. Cal. Michigan Bar - Isaac N. King; Saturday, February 11/59" (below a blank space:)"Far from my native land I strove .. Who has watched me through night and day and to my parents I will prove to you my debts I never can pay read the first and third together" (This text was found on a small loose sheet of paper inside the notebook where William Henry King (Isaac's older brother) wrote "A Last Prayer" for his mother on June 6 1859, 3 days before he was hanged at Cobourg for poisoning his wife.)
    Note: We know Isaac was in California but the address appears say "Cal. Michigan Bar".
  • Note: March 1859; California, U.S.A.; Between March 1859 and 1861 Isaac King went to California. The account of William Henry King's story mentions that William got a letter from Issac who was in California. The list of Postmasters says that the reason for leaving was "Leaving the country".
    Note: The John Goodfellow story tells that several of his sons went to California with a few others from the area in 1859 and several others some years later. No mention is made of Isaac King, although they were close neighbours. The timing is not right for Isaac to have been one of the early bunch that went per the Goodfellow story - maybe the later ones.
  • Note: May 1859; Court House, Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Canada West; The account of William Henry King's trial includes diary entries from one Alexander Stewart who was assigned to guard William while he was in jail awaiting execution. His words include the following entries:
    Soon after the trial: "Mr. Bennett had two letters, one from a brother in California who heard of his imprisonment and expected to hear of his acquital, expressed his (William's) regret to think how it would vex him to hear if his verdict and sentence. 'My poor Isaac, how it will wound your heart, you need to feel so proud of me.'"
    Only a few days before the end: "The Judge, his counsel, his brother Isaac in California, and numerous others received letters from King during the weeks prior to his execution."

  • Census*: April 1861; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 25 at 1861 Census: see George King9
  • Note: 1863; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "Miss Losie married Mr. Isaac King and they had three sons and a daughter. Hiram was a dentist, Charles, John and Marion were ministers. Marion preached in Warkworth church about five years ago. She now lives in California. After Mr. King's death Mrs. King married Mr. John Darling." Tweedsmuir Histories, The Village of Codrington, written in 1937 by former Codrington School teacher Miss Nellie Greenly.4

Upon being asked his name, he replied that it was King, and admitted his relationship to the accused. From the shop he went to the prison, where he saw his brother. The gaoler was present during the interview, and as the two were allowed to converse only through a small hole in the cell door, he is quite sure nothing was handed from one to the other. King explains the strychnine was purchased for the purpose of poisoning foxes, of which there are many about his father’s farm. Excused of this description are always at hand."

It was John D.'s brother Anthony who moved his family to St. Thomas, N. Dakota. In 1881 he and his six older children moved West. Then in 1883 his wife, Ann, and their four younger children came to St. Thomas. Two books which record Garnett histories are: "A Centrury of St. Thomas Times" 1880-1980, pages 99-101 and "Beneath the Long Grass". I think I have recorded man of the descendants of John D. and Margaret - as well as all of John D.'s and Amelia's - and I 've met and visited many of them. Very interesting!
