Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     James Coleman Buckberrough was born on 10 June 1824.1 He was the son of George Buckberrough and Sarah Coleman.1 He married Rachel Smith.1 He died on 5 April 1916 at Windham Twp, Norfolk County, Ontario, at age 91.1 He was buried at Bookton Cemetery, Windham Twp, Norfolk County, Ontario.1 James appears in the 1901 census and the names of his wife, children Edward and Lauria, and their birthdates come from this. The 1901 census gives James' birthdate as June 12th, 1824. It's entirely possible that there were other children away from home by 1901.

A James Buckberry appears in the 1871 census in Oxford County. I believe that he is a cousin of our James.

Today at the Archives I found a death registration for James Coleman Buckberrough dated April 5, 1916. Number 923808. Windham, Norfolk County, on MS935 Reel 223. It was unsatisfactory. The informant said that James had been born in England and that his mother's maiden name was unknown. He did say that James's father was George. I looked through reels for the Reformer newspaper, but found no obituary. There are otherpapers and I will look again. I need to obtain a copy of the death registration, but the printers were busy.

Rachel Buckberrough's death took place on August 30, 1901. 021652. Recorded at Windham, Norfolk County.

The names of the children of Rachel and James are taken from the 1861, 1871 and 1881 censuses. It looks like some of the ages given may beapproximate. There is the odd conflict between censuses.

The spelling of the family name in the 1861 census is Buckbrough and in the 1871 census it is written Bucbery.1
