Adam Misener1

ID # 47, (1798-1901)
Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Adam Misener was born on 20 February 1798 at Niagara, Upper Canada.1 He married Mary Miller on 21 April 1821 at Jerseyville, Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario. (notes: Marriage information is from a history put together by Harley Misenerand quoted from the Wentworth County Chronicle, February 17, 1898/ One Hundred Years/Beverly's Centenarian Still Hale and Hearty/Interesting Sketch of Uncle Adam Misener.).1 He married Helen Coleman, daughter of John Coleman and Elizabeth Lawrason, on 21 April 1831 at Gore District, Canada West. (notes: The marriage date of April 21, 1831, is per Misener family information and is likely correct. The marriage bond for Adam and Helen was issued April 16, 1831. The bond, number 2456, ex C-6780, was issued at Brantford. The bondsmen were Henry Moe and Jeriah Bonham. The document is badly faded, but Helen's name is given as Eleanor. Since Helen is how her name is shown on her gravestone, this usage has been followed in this tree. The place of their marriage is unknown, but was almost certainly in the Gore District. Gore District records have not survivedfrom the 1830s. It's possible that they were married in Brantford, but Beverly or Dumfries Townships are also possible.).1 He died on 21 September 1901 at Troy, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 103.1 He was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 The first record that I find of Adam Misener in Beverly is the 1819 land assessment.

Adam's death registration number is 029458-01.

The Misener family is fortunate to have an extensive recorded historyand can be found on a website moderated by Connie Duke. Another source of information is that put together by Harley Misener in the 1950s.This includes newspaper accounts of Adam Misener's 100th birthday, which, by the newspaper account, was quite an affair and well attended by several generations of Adam's descendants. Such information as is known about Mary Miller, Adam's first wife, and their children is takenfrom this account and elaborated upon wherever possible. Since this tree is essentially a Coleman family tree, most research has been done on the children of Adam and Helen, however the children of Adam and Mary are noted here as well. It should be noted that the dates of the two marriages shown as exactly ten years apart and this is believed to be correct.1
