By Rev. D. W. Misener, Methodist Episcopal

The 1869 Province of Ontario Directory locates the Methodist Episcopal minister D. W. Misener in the village of St. David's in Niagara Township. At some remove, he was a relation of Elisha's. Elisha and Lovina may or may not have been married in St. David's, but it seems likely.

Rev. D. W. Misener was apparently Dustan Wells Misener, son of Conrad Misener and Elizabeth Wells. Conrad was brother of Adam Misener. (Adam had a son he named Conrad, but Dustan was son of the brother.) Henry Moe Misener and Dustan Wells Misener were about the same age and likely good friends as well as first cousins for Henry to go to Dustan to get married.

Yorkville was annexed by Toronto in 1883, and is in an area of Toronto now sometimes referred to as The Annex. Yorkville had its own post office and this continued for a time under the same name for some years after 1883.

Lovina's parents are in Yorkville as of the 1871 census. Probably, Lovina was working in Toronto at the time of her marriage, hence it being shown as her residence. Toronto Township in Peel County is also a possibility, though, all considered, the City of Toronto seems the more likely.
 
DeathShe died on 15 June 1909 at Detroit, Michigan, at age 66. 
BurialShe was buried on 17 June 1909 at Woodmere Cemetery, Detroit, Michigan.
