ID # 3486, (1799-1856)
|Birth||Elizabeth Corwine was born on 14 January 1799.|
|Marriage||She married Robert Nixon in 1817.|
But one reference for the marriage of Robert Nixon has been found and, while it doesn't provide a date is sufficient to identify the persons involved.
This is to be found on page 62 of The American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review, Vol. 1, New York, 1817. The heading is Domestic Occurences. Three marriages are mentioned which occurred at 'Clinton', one of them being Mr. Robert Nixon of Grimsby to Miss Betsy Corwine. This marriage, or perhaps a relating news article, appears to be in April of the year.
No other information is given.
Wikipedia provides five possibilities for a Clinton, New York. Of course, there is also the possibility that it refers to Clinton Township, Ontario, which would be close to Grimsby. It seems likely that The American Monthly Magazine had a following in Upper Canada. Such a situation in later decades certainly applied to the Niagara Falls (New York) Gazette.
|Death||She died on 11 February 1856 at age 57.|
|Burial||She was buried at St. Andrew's Anglican Church Cemetery, Grimsby.|
