Birth: 1799
County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Death: unknown
Edwardsburgh
Leeds and Grenville United Counties
Ontario, Canada

Edward Dempsey and his first wife, Jane Hay, had five children born in County Antrim and baptised at the First Kilrea Presbyterian Church in County Derry.

About 1832 the Montreal Emigrant Society sponsored the family's passage to Prescott, Ontario, to help populate the Canadian Territories. The family settled in Oxford Township, Grenville County where Edward continued as a weaver.

According to Dempsey family history and the Family Bible kept by Edward's granddaughter Jane Carmichael, he was widowed twice and remarried a Janet Christie and a Sarah.

Additional children born in Co Antrim include two sons, Stewart born in 1831 and another son, name unknown. Both may have died young.

On the 1881 census Edward and his third wife Sarah are listed living in Edwardsburgh, Grenville County, with Edward working as a farmer at 82. He passed away before 1891.
