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 County, Ontario. 
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.

Albert's death registration is badly faded. The reg. number is 012552-03. He is said to be 75 years of age. He is said to reside at Lot 1 on Concession 11 of Colborne Township and that he was a farmer. His place of birth is given as Waterloo County.

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 is probably not correct. Based on inferential information from the 1947 booklet, History of the People of Troy, and the names of children of Albert and his presumed siblings, We may say that he was the son of Samuel Wilson Cowden Smith of Beverly. Albert had a brother, Christopher Milo Smith. Also, his sister Eliza Smith married James Vrooman, son of Arents Schuyler Depeyster Vrooman. James and Eliza named children Christopher Milo and also Albert.

There is a possibility that Albert Kellogg Smith was born in Ancaster.
