Looking for Monroe of Canada West

Query by 1119monroe

I am looking for Richard P. Monroe born about 1837 in Canada West. He married Melvina Dewese born about 1857 in Indiana USA. I have found them in San Antonio TX and Butler KS but nothing before 1880 0r after 1882. They are the parents of my Greatgrandfather Robert Harrison "Harry" Monroe as listed on his marriage license dated 1910. Does anyone have any information about him. Thank you for your help Doug

Father is George Monroe, Hotel Keeper, of Upper Canada, wife Ann from Ireland and children George, Richard, Emily, Hugh and what looks like Cassa. Religion WM ~ possibly Wesleyan Methodist?

I never did understand what Canada West stood for. You have clarified that for me and George and Ann look right to me.
