     Eunice Buckberrough was born on 18 January 1829 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 She was the daughter of George Buckberrough and Sarah Coleman.1 She married James William Lawrason, son of Thomas Lawrason and Charity Deneen, on 24 March 1847 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 She died on 3 July 1916 at Lot 7 Conc 3, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 87.1 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 The names for the children of James and Eunice are from A History of the People of Troy, 1947, and confirmed, where possible, by census information and any other registration that has come to hand.

From The Marriage Registers of Upper Canada/Canada West, Vol. 13: Gord District 1842-1856. Compiled by Dan Walker & Fawne Stratford-Devai:Under marriages by Rev'd John Law, Wesleyan Minister (p.66)
James W. Lawrison, to Unice Buckborough, both of Beverly. 24 Mar. 1847, by banns. Rev. Law. Wit. Conrad Misener and Zachariah Smith.

Eunice's death date is from her death registration, 033269-16. Her parents are stated to be George Buckborrough and Sarah Coleman. She suffered a fractured hip and died of natural causes. Her attending physician was J.L. Gibson of Lynden. The informant was Herbert Lawrason.

Delores MacIntyre has kindly provided a photocopy of a newspaper clipping from 1897. The name of the paper is not known, though it may wellhave been the Brantford Expositor. The story is entitled: Golden Wedding at Troy. The article is lengthy and what follows is a summation, mainly in terms of naming the attendees. The celebration was held on March 24, 1897, on the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Eunice and James. Mr. Peter Wood of Brantford, James's brother-in-law, was master of ceremonies. Present, in addition to Herbert Lawrason, the couple's son, was:
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Wood, Brantford (Lucinda Jerusha), and Mr. and Mrs. John Parsons, Bookton. The two ladies being sisters of James.
Mr. and Mrs. D. Buckborough, Waterloo ( I can't think who this fellowis); Mr. and Mrs. J. Buckborough, Bookton (James Coleman Buckberroughand his wife Rachel), H. Buckborough, Detroit (Hugh). The three gentlemen were brothers of Eunice.
J. Smith, Tyrell, brother-in-law to Eunice (Jonathan Smith was married to Margaret Buckberrough).
Mr. and Mrs. C. Misner, Troy. Conrad Misener was James's best man. (This is Conrad Misener, son of Adam Misener and his first wife Mary Miller, and Conrad's second wife Elizabeth Prine, or Perrine.)
Mr. and Mrs. H. Cornell of St. George (Sarah) and Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Adams (Alfretta) of Brantford. The two ladies were daughters of James and Eunice.
The following grandchildren were present: Eva Cornell, Nellie Cornell, Ackman (Aikman) Cornell, Jas. Cornell, Geo. Cornell, all apparentlyof St. George; and Mary E. Adams, Maggie Adams, Eliza Adams, James and Albert Adams, all apparently of Brantford.
Nieces (of James, I believe) were Mrs. J.R. Colter of Brantford and Miss E. Parsons of Rockton.
A nephew, W. Sager was there with his wife. (This could be either William or Wellington Sager, sons of James' sister Elizabeth.)
Other guests from Troy were: Mr. and Mrs. Alex Ironside, Mr. and Mrs.J. Gamble, Mr. and Mrs. A. Laidlaw, Miss K. Misener (Kate Hood), Mr. A. Misener, age 99 (Adam), and S. Wood (This is likely Samuel Wood.)
