Emma Elizabeth McDowell (about 1860—7 August 1902)

Emma Elizabeth McDowell1 was the daughter of Samuel S. McDowell and Rosina Brigham. She was born about 1860 in Dereham, Oxford, ON, CA. 1 She lived with Hamilton McDowell and his wife Rhoda A. (Brigham) McDowell, her uncle and aunt. in 1871 in Dereham, Oxford, ON, CA. She lived in 1885 at Metcalfe, Middlesex, ON, CA. 1 She died on 7 August 1902 at Michigan, USA. She was buried at Maple Grove Cemetery, Harrison, Clare, Michigan, USA.

Notes: At the time of her marriage in 1885 Miss McDowell claimed to have been born in Metcalfe.  However there are no McDowells in any of the censuses of Metcalfe.  Unfortunately the 1861 census of Metcalfe is so fragmentary due to illegibility that the absence of McDowells at that time cannot be proven.  However the only Samuel and Rosina McDowell active in Ontario about 1860 were Samuel and Rosina McDowell of Dereham.  This Samuel McDowell died in 1862 and is buried in Dereham.  There is a girl "E. McDowell" age 2 in the 1861 census of Dereham, in the household of a "J. McDowell".  This "J. McDowell" is about the same age and has the same birthplace as Samuel McDowell commemorated in the Delmer Cemetery in Dereham, but is probably Sam's brother Joseph. There is also an "Emily E. McDowell" age 13 in the 1871 census of Dereham in the household of Hamilton and Rhoda McDowell.  Hamilton is possibly a brother of Emily's father and his wife Rhoda McDowell is almost certainly Rhoda A. Brigham the sister of Emily's mother.  There is no matching child in the Hamilton McDowell household in the 1881 census of Dereham, and there is no "Em... McDowell" anywhere in the 1881 census of Ontario.

She married Charles Wesley Holden. She married Charles Wesley Holden on 30 September 1885 at Metcalfe, Middlesex, ON, CA. 1

Charles Wesley Holden2 was the son of James Moses Holden and Elizabeth Eastman. He was born on 8 April 1857 at Adelaide, Middlesex, ON, CA. 3 He was christened on 17 June 1868 at Adelaide, Middlesex, ON, CA. 2 He worked as a Shoemaker in 1881 at Adelaide, Middlesex, ON, CA. 4 He worked as a Methodist Minister in 1885 at Metcalfe, Middlesex, ON, CA. 1 He worked as a Minister in 1904 at McBain, Michigan, USA. He died in 1947 at Michigan, USA.
