Sarah Ann Glennie (11 Oct 1847—26 Mar 1929)

Sarah Ann Glennie1 was the daughter of George Allen Cameron Glennie and Ruth Wifeofgeorgeglennie. She was born on 11 October 1847 at Nova Scotia, Canada. 2,3,4,5 She lived in 1872 at Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 5 She lived in 1901 at Murdock St, Strathroy, Middlesex, ON, CA. 6 She died on 26 March 1929 at St Josephs Hospital, London, ON, CA. 7 She was buried on 27 March 1929 at St Peters R.C. Cemetery, London, ON, CA. 7

Notes: It is difficult to make sense of the records pertaining to Sarah Ann Glenney. In her marriage in 1872 she is listed as single and the daughter of George and Ruth Glenney. However in the 1871 census she is listed as the wife of George Glenney, and there is a big gap among the children of George that is consistent with his having a second, much younger wife. Furthermore in 1891 (Caradoc) and 1901 (Strathroy) there appears a Fred Rice, born about 1868 who is listed as the son of James and Sarah (Glenney) Rice on his marriage in 1900. This creates a problem since James and Sarah did not get married until 1872, but it is resolved when we find a Fred Glenney, son of George Glenney in the 1871 census. Although identified as the wife of George Glenney in the 1871 census she could not be his widow, both because she said she was not when she got married in 1872, and also because George lived on for many years afterward, now married to an Eliza or Elizabeth. He is obviously the same person since in both 1871 and 1881 he has children David and Ruth. Moreover, after the marriage of Sarah Ann, George moved to share the property of her new husband James Rice. There is no solution to this which makes total sense. The options include: 1) The "married" indicator against Sarah Ann in the 1871 census is erroneous, and George should be identified as a Widower. If all of the children listed here are those from George's marriage to Ruth, why is there a 17 year gap between his son Napoleon and his son Fred? If Ruth was at least 18 at the birth of Sarah Ann, then she was at least 43 at the birth of the triplets in 1868, a bit unusual in those tough days. And even that assumes that Sarah Ann was their eldest child, which seems doubtful considering that she was at least 30 years younger than George. If Ruth was approximately the same age as George, as is generally true of first marriages, she would have been about 53 at the time of the birth of Fred. 2) George was already remarried to Eliza[beth] by 1868 and the three young children (Fred, David, and Ruth] are hers. Note that Eliza[beth] was several years younger than his daughter Sarah Ann! I bet that caused some problems! In this case the enumerator erroneously conflated the two young women. 3) The "married" indicator against Sarah Ann in the 1871 census is correct. This is not possible, however, because she certainly could not leave her husband in 1870s Ontario and remain in the same community. Moreover her new husband and her "ex" are so friendly that they shared the same property from then on. In all cases we have the question of why Fred subsequently identified himself as the son of his older sister Sarah Ann and her husband James Rice, even to the extent of taking her married name as his surname?

She married James Rice on 7 January 1872 at Strathroy, Middlesex, ON, CA. 5

James Rice was the son of Hugh Rice and Catharine Wifeofhughrice. He was born on 24 June 1824 in Ireland. 8,9,5 He worked as a Farmer from 1861 to 1901 at lot 3 con 5, Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 10,11,9,12,13,5 He immigrated in 1845 in Canada. 9 He died between 1902 and 1928 in Ontario, Canada.

The Province of Upper Canada was separated from the Province of Quebec in 1791 to create a colony that was subject to English law and the protestant Church of England as opposed to the remainder, which became the Province of Lower Canada, subject to French civil law and with an extablished Roman Catholic church.

As a result of the revolts in 1837 against the established administrations in both Lower and Upper Canada the two colonies were merged in 1841 by the Act of Union (1840).  Formally the western province was Canada West, although most people continued to refer to it as Upper Canada.

This entry is used retrospectively for events occuring in the colony of Upper Canada from its founding in 1791 to its merger into the Colony of Canada as Canada West in 1841, and for events occuring in Canada West from 1841 to Confederation in 1867 when it became the province of Ontario within the Dominion of Canada. This is consistent with the way that events are described in official documents such as censuses recorded after 1867.
