Albert SMITH/ Beverly Township
Amelia MISENER/ Beverly Township
Married: 6 February 1851/ At the Parsonage/ Rev. Hamilton Biggar
Christian Guardian: 12 February 1851

Hamilton Biggar, at least originally, was an Episcopal Methodist clergyman. At some point, he jumped ship, for a marriage registration, only two months after that of Albert and Amelia, has him at the Wesleyan parsonage in Dumfries. This, reasonably, will be at St. George.

A brief backgrounder for Rev. Biggar may be found on pages 186 and 495 of the 1883 Warner's History of the County of Brant. 
DeathHe died on 28 April 1903 at Colborne Township, Huron County, Ontario, at age 75. 
BurialHe was buried at Dungannon Cemetery, Ashfield Township, Huron, Ont. 
NoteInformation for birth and death years for Albert Smith are taken from a transcription of gravestones at the Dungannon Cemetery. Albert's grand daughter Isabella, daughter of Thomas and Albert Elliott, was buried with Albert and Amelia.

Death reg. 012552-03 Colbourne Twp., Huron Co.
Albert K. Smith died April 28, 1903. Age 75. Residence lot 1, concession 11. Farmer. Methodist. Born Waterloo County. Physician and informant Dr. Case.

Information found in the 1871 census index shows Albert and his family in Beverly Township in Wentworth County. The 1881 census shows the family in Colborne Township in Huron County.

The statement in Albert's death registration that he was born in Waterloo County, or at least in what became Waterloo County, may or may not be correct. He was, probably, born in the Gore District, though just where remains undiscovered. It was originally thought that he was a son of Samuel Wilson Cowden Smith who had roots in Ancaster Township, though was later in Beverly. It is found, however, that there were two Samuel Smiths, one having died much earlier. A Samuel Smith is buried in St. George Cemetery with 'Delia' Smith, apparently Adelia who is with Lewis Wood at the time of the 1861 census. This Samuel died in 1838. There is apparently a will for this Samuel to be found on microfilm at the Ontario archives. It now appears rather more likely that Albert is the brother of Asenath Smith who appears in this tree. She married Lewis Wood. Considering that Albert had a son named Lewis Wood Smith, this begins to look like a promising line of research.
