Liscum family, Upper Canada
I am continuing my research on the maternal side of the Spinks family. The name is Eliza Jane Liscum, born 2 Mar 1871 in Roseneath, Alnwick Twp., Northumberland, Ontario, Canada. She is the daughter of George Liscum and Jemima Rosetta Jackson.. George was born 4 April 1834 presumably in Upper Canada. He married Jemima 1 Dec 1856 and Died 4 Dec 1874 in Roseneath, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada. After George's untimely death, Jemima remarried Peter Smith on 6 Feb 1878 in Hastings, Ontario, Canada in the Alderville Methodist Church.
Between George and Jemima, 5 children were born. The last, Ekiza Jane Liscum is my great grandmother. In all my research thus far, I draw a blank as to the parentage of both George Liscum and Jemima Rosetta Jackson. I have come across several Liscum's in the census records, but no way to connrect parentage. I think, but cannot prove that George's brother may have been Bailey and Maitland Liscum, but it is only a supposition. I have nothing concrete. I am anxious to crack this line and would be happy to share any of the information I have that might be helpful to anyone. It just seems to me that with birth and marriage registrations there should be parents listed someplace, but I am coming up blank. Any help would be appreciated.
