Tombstone Tuesday - Squire Family Plot at Greenwood Cemetery, Owen Sound pt 2

Back in May, I posted a photo of the Squire monument at Greenwood Cemetery, Owen Sound. Today's posting is of another side of the monument.

Norman Morley Squire
Elizabeth Squire
N. Mabel Squire

In the 1871 census for Onondaga, Brant County, Norman was only 5 months old. His father Benjamin was 45 and his Mother Elizabeth 23. There is also Mary Anne 15 and Sarah 11. Mary Ann and Sarah were from a previous marriage.

By 1881, the family had grown to include Minnie 8, Edwin 5, Mabel 2 and Daniel 1. They were living in Brooke, Sarawak Township, Grey County, Ontario.

When Benjamin married Elizabeth Hamilton 22 December 1869, he was 44 and she 22. She was not much older than her stepchildren.

Morley Norman Squire, as he is registered, was born 9 November 1870 in Onandaga.

Mabel was registered as Nelly Mable. She was born 6 February 1879 in Onandaga.

Because their death registrations are not yet available, to learn more about these individuals a search for their obituaries may give their exact dates of death.
