Wife of John Blair
Louisa Jane Lewis was born c1816 in New York State, USA to American-born parents, Uriah and Clarissa Lewis. Growing up she lived in Easton, Washington, New York, followed by Ellisburg, Jefferson, New York and finally Oswego, Oswego, New York. In 1848, born to her and an Irish-born man whose surname was Dickson, were twin boys Edgar and Edward. She and her boys (without their father) were living with her widowed mother Clarissa in the 1850 Oswego census. By the time of the 1861 Louth, Lincoln Co, Ontario census, Louisa was living with her new husband Scottish-born John Blair and his children from a previous marriage. Tragically, her son Edward, who worked as a railroad brakesman, died in an accident in 1870. Her other son Edgar, a cooper, moved back to the USA -- to Bay City, Bay, Michigan by 1880. Louisa died on April 7, 1888 of heart disease in Louth, Lincoln, Ontario at the age of 71. Her widowed husband John Blair remarried the following year to Catherine Knapp. Information provided by David Rodgers
