Wedding Wednesday

Jonas Friar married Anne Haskill 2 Oct 1834 in St. John's Anglican Church in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada. Somewhere around here I have a photocopy of the marriage. This marriage record comes from the Anglican Archives and was sent to me by a cousin years ago.

"Marriage record of Jonas Friar and Anna Haskill
Friar married to Haskill
Jonas Friar of the township of Hope in the District of Newcastle, yeoman, was married by license to Anna Haskill, of the same place, spinster, this second day of October AD 1834 by me .....

witnesses: Isaac Johnson
Eliza Culver"

This is pretty much the first record I have for Jonas, and he disappears by the 1851 census.In the upcoming months Jonas Friar is a "brick wall" I hope to break down!
