Elisha Ames

M, #26272, b. 4 July 1781, d. 1820
  • Birth*: 4 July 1781; New York, U.S.A.; Note: I am pretty sure that this Elisha Ames is not the son of Elisha Ames and Elizabeth Cook, as some trees show. There is another Elisha in that family, born 1816, and lived in Pennsylvania. (Dan Buchanan, March 16 2020)
    Date Jul 4 1781 & location NY per family tree of Sarah Ames Bond on ancestry.ca, March 16 2020.
    Date 1780 & location NY per family tree of jblee25 on ancestry.ca, Sep 2 2018. Location is a guess. Family history has this Ames group descending from the early settlers in Massachusetts and there are suggestions some of them lived in New York State before coming to Upper Canada. This would fit with the father of this Elisha Ames being a United Empire Loyalist. This is speculation, however, because there are few Ames' listed as receiving Crown Grants - and no Elisha.1
  • Marriage*: 19 January 1804; Fredericksburgh Twp., Lennox & Addington Co., Upper Canada; "Elisha Ames and Mary Ockerman, both of Fredericksburgh, Jan 19 1804." from Rev. McDowell's Marriage Register, Ontario Historical Society Papers & Records, Vol. 1, 1899, pg. 73, Ontario Archives, March 23, 2000; Principal=Mary Jane June Ackerman2
  • Death*: 1820; Adolphustown Twp., Lennox & Addington Co., Upper Canada; Date 1820 & location Adolphustown per family tree of Sarah Ames Bond on ancestry.ca, March 16 2020. Date 1820 & location Adolphustown per family tree of jblee25 on ancestry.ca, Sep 2 2018. IGI Record shows "Death: Before 04 Mar 1825, Ontario". This may refer to the date of his wife's second marriage to John Simons?? It is the only reference I have seen regarding Elisha Ames's death.
    Note: The early death of Elisha Ames would fit well with the early life of James Ames, if they are father and son. There is absolutely no reference in any later records of the parents of James Ames, other than the fact, in census records, that he was born in Ontario around 1807.1
  • Residence*: 19 January 1804; Fredericksburgh Twp., Lennox & Addington Co., Upper Canada; Residence per marriage register - " ... both of Fredericksburgh ... "2
  • Census*: 12 March 1804; Adolphustown Twp., Lennox & Addington Co., Upper Canada; "Elisha Ames, 2 men, 1 woman, 3 total" from Inhabitants of Adolpustown, March 12, 1804, seen on Lennox & Addington web site
  • Occupation*: 1809; Thurlow Twp., Belleville, Hastings Co., Upper Canada; Cooper: per reference in History and Settlement of Upper Canada.
  • Residence: 1809; Thurlow Twp., Belleville, Hastings Co., Upper Canada; "Much of what is known about early life in Belleville comes from his wife's recollections, which are among the Canniff papers in the Ontario Archives. Martha once named the people living in houses within the original town limits in 1809 as "McIntosh, Johnson, Dr. Spareham, Major Thompson, P. Holmes, Mrs. Simpson (who owned the tavern), R. leavens, Simmons (a cooper), S. McNabb, Ames, Ackeman, Stewart and Maybee." She recalled seeing, as a girl of five, the construction scaffolding still standing at the Meyers house in the outskirts of the town." from "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto" by Margaret McBurney and Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 1063
  • Residence: 1809; Thurlow Twp., Belleville, Hastings Co., Upper Canada; "In the year 1809, Alexander Oliphant Petrie came to live at Myers Creek. He found the following persons living in Belleville at the time. Commencing at the lowest part ….. John Simons; one Ames, a cooper; … …. Ockerman, a cooper; … " from pg. 498 of History and Settlement of Upper Canada, by Dr. Canniff
    Note: Belleville was called Meyer's Creek until it became Belleville at some point.
    Note: This passage is especially interesting because it names three potentially related persons. The Ames could have been Elisha Ames. The Ockerman could have been part of his wife, Mary Ockerman's family. John Simons could be the one Mary married after Elisha Ames died.??????
  • Census: 1810; Percy Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; 1810 Census: Elisha Ames, 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, 1 female over 16, 2 females under 16
  • Census: 1811; Percy Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; 1811 Census: Elisha Ames, 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, 1 female over 16
    Note: The abcense of reference to the two females under 16 is quite clear; there are no confusing marks on the document. It would appear that the two girls have died.
    Note: Elisha Ames is shown with no land but with 3 horses and one cow. His name is very near Francis Palmateer and Jacob and John Dingman which puts him at the current village of Norham.

Mary Jane June Ackerman1,2,3

F, #26273, b. 12 January 1785
  • Birth*: 12 January 1785; Canada; Date Jan 12 1785 per per family tree of DavidAckerman45 on ancestry.ca, Sep 4 2018. American Genealogical Index: Name: Elisha Ames; Birth DatE: 1785; Volume 04; Page 16; BIO Info: Can.; Ref.: Gen. Column of the " Boston Transcript". 1906-1941.( The greatest single source of material for gen. Data for the N.E. area and for the period 1600-1800. Completely indexed in the Index.): Mar 31, 1920, 8041
    Note: After much digging and speculating, I am placing this Mary, wife of Elisha Ames, as a dau. of Jacobus Ackerman and Betje Belser. Her marriage register clearly says Mary Ockerman and most trees have Mary Ackerman, but with no idea who her parents were. Jacob Ockerman who ended up as cooper to the Canniffs in Canniff Mills, is listed as Jacob Ackerman in DavidAckerman45 tree so I am thinking Mary and Jacob may be siblings who took the different spelling. I found an assessment record for 1808 in Fredericksburgh for Jacob Ackerman which may be this guy, with only 1 horse and no land. He is then married to Phoebe Dunham - who are also in the assessment. John Hart is also there, mother of Elizabeth Hart, wife of James Ackerman, who I am assuming is a brother of Jacob. James Ackerman appears in the list of Crown Deeds in Fredericksburgh, Jun 10 1801, Conc 2, Lot 10, 200 acres.4

Elisha Ames

M, #26275, b. circa 1805
  • Birth*: circa 1805; Upper Canada; A second Male under 16 (besides James) is reference in 1810 and 1811 Census.
  • Marriage*: circa 1828; per 1833 Census & Assessment, Haldimand Twp.; Principal=? ?
  • Marriage*: 25 November 1850; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Elisha Ames to Lovina Vanwicklin, both of Cramahe, Nov 25 1850, by Rev. Lacey of Haldimand. Witnesses: Samuel and Emaline Farington" from District of Newcastle Marriage Registers, Ontario Archives
    Note: This marriage register is clear in and of itself but it is speculation to say this Elisha Ames is the son of the earlier Elisha Ames, who may also be the father of our James Ames. Things fit rather well constructed this way, however. This connection assumes that Elisha, James' brother, lived with him on Waupoos Island and came up to Cramahe/Murray with them in 1850. This Elisha and his wife do not appear in any subsequent census records in this area.
    Note: Earlier in our research we thought this Elisha Ames may be the son of James. However, this would make him about 14 years of age at the time of this marriage - not likley.; Principal=Lovina Van Wicklin1
  • Residence*: 17 April 1830; Marysburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Upper Canada; Witness at Marriage - Marriage Register: "Robert Webster of the Township of Kingston and Sarah Murray of the township of Marysburgh were married by Banns by me, Marysburgh, this day, 17th April 1830 - Job Deacon. This marriage was celebrated by the Rev. Job Deacon on the date above. In the presence of: Elisha Ames & James Ames. Robert Webster & Sarah H. Murray." From Register 1-A-8, Anglican Church Ontario Diosese Archives, seen on original documents, July 17, 2001.
    Note: This is the first time we have seen Elisha Ames and James Ames mentioned together. There are numerous references to Elisha in the area but this shows that they were both in or near Marysburgh in 1830 when James and Mary were married. It remains to determine whether this is our James or if Elisha Ames is James's brother, father or uncle.
  • Census*: 1833; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; 1833 Census: Elisha Ames (first one at top of page); (no land info); Males over 16 - 2; Males under 16 - 2; Females over 16 - 2; Total Family - 6
    Note: Elisha Ames does not appear in any other Haldimand record - as far as I have seen thus far.
    Note: This was found while printing the Haldimand early census and assessment records at The Ontario Archives.
