The date of the census isn't known, but his age is given as 5 months. His birthdate is taken from the 1901 census at Hamilton. He isthere with his wife Harriet, age 45, daughter Zella, age 25, and son Ebon, age 15. The writing is difficult, but it appears to state that he came to Canada in 1856.

Further research is needed to sort out the children of George Church and Harriet Cummins. At the time of the 1881 census at Flamborough East, they have with them, apparently twins, Sarah R. and Harriet A., both age 4.

The 1901 census at Hamilton shows George and Harriet with a daughter Zella, said to be born March 18, 1876, and a son Ebon born 29 April 1886.

The 1911 census shows George Church with daughter Myrtle and her husband Henry Anderson. Myrtle's birth information is given as May 1883.1
