NoteA birth registration for Amelia has not been found. The 1901 census shows her month and year of birth as February, 1871. The date was written in but is creased and faded on the page. The 1871 census, however, was not begun until April of the year. The shows an Ann E. Dunsmore, age 1 month, the daughter of William Smith Dunsmore and Emily Dunsmore of Glenelg Township in Grey County. The family is shown as Wesleyan Methodist.

This leads us to the Wesleyan Methodist Baptisms as transcribed by Ida Reed and which appears on Bill Martin's web page. This shows William S. and wife E. Dunsmore resident in Glenelg Township. It shows their daughter Ann Amelia Dunsmore as being born on Feb. 11, 1871, in Glenelg Township, and also as being baptised on March 19, 1871, in Glenelg Township, by Rev. N. S. Burwash. (As of the 1871 census, the Hendershot family are shown as Episcopal Methodists, so they do not appear in the Wesleyan Methodist database.)

The 1901 census shows Edgar and Amelia in the city of Hamilton with three children.

The 1911 census shows the family still in Hamilton. Edgar works in a bakery and they have six children.

They are still in Hamilton at the time of the 1921 census. Edgar is shown as a 'collector', but the nature of his work is illegible.

The 1935 voters' list shows Edgar and Amelia at 14 Spruceside in Hamilton with two daughters.
