ID # 3246, (1830-1891)
|Father||John Lemon (1801-1871)|
|Mother||Martha Heaton (1808-1874)|
|Birth||Andrew Lemon was born on 27 September 1830 at Stamford Township, Niagara District.|
|Marriage||He married Charlotte Laura Armstrong, daughter of Thomas George Armstrong and Charlotte Fellows, on 22 August 1861.|
The date for the marriage of Andrew and Charlotte, 22 August, 1861, is as given in a biography that appeared in the Western Law Times, Vol II, Winnipeg, 1891. A marriage registration for Andrew and Charlotte has not been found in the Canada West county marriage registrations, which are reasonably well indexed. At first glance, this is odd, for Charlotte's mother, Charlotte Fellows Armstrong, married Walter Dickson in 1859 and this is to be found with ease. It is entirely possible that the answer to this has to do with handwriting issues - there are certainly legibility issues with the handwriting of the Lincoln County clerk. Since a search of the Lincoln County marriage register shows nothing even faintly resembling the names of Andrew or Charlotte, another answer might well be that the couple married out of province. At the time of their marriage, Charlotte was probably resident in Niagara Town and so a marriage in New York State is entirely possible. Canada East (Quebec) is also (though less likely) a possibility.
|Death||He died on 19 May 1891 at Winnipeg, Manitoba, at age 60.|
|Burial||He was buried at St. John's Cathedral Anglican Cemetery, Winnipeg.|
|Note||For much of what follows, and unless otherwise stated, we draw upon The Western Law Times, Editor Archer Martin, Barrister-at-Law, Vol. 2, Winnipeg, Canada, The Western Law Times Publishing Company, 1891. This also provides us with us with some background information for Andrew's wife Charlotte Laura Armstrong.|
