About John BINKLEY

Name: John Binkley 1 2 Sex: M ALIA: /Jr./ Birth: 9 JUL 1807 in Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario 3 Death: 27 AUG 1882 in Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario 3 4 5 Religion: Methodist Residence: 1871 Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario Burial: UNKNOWN Binkley/Marx Cemetery, Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario 6 4 Occupation: Farmer/ Tanner/ Currier Reference Number: 57 Note:

   There has been some confusion about John Binkley b. July 9th 1807. Some records indicate he was the son of William Binkley instead of his nephew. I believe this John is the son of John b. 1777 for the following reasons: He inherited the land owned by John b.1777
   He and his first wife Ann Jane Horning are buried in the Binkley Cemetery in West Hamilton, where John and George's lines are buried. William's line is buried in the Binkley Cemetery in Dundas.
   On the marriage record with his second wife, Elizabeth Weaver Green, John and Nancy are recorded as his parents.
   I do not believe there were two John Binkleys born on July 9, 1807 to two brothers, John and William. Some have John of William marrying Ann Jane Horning and John of John marrying the widow, Elizabeth Weaver Green. Since John and Ann Jane inherited John's ( b. 1777) land and their children after them, I believe there was only one John Binkley b. 1807 who was the son of John and Nancy and married twice. The dates of children and marriages and deaths fit with this conclusion. The secret to confirm all this is to find the marriage record of John Binkley and Ann Jane Horning. Still looking.

   First Married: 17 MAY 1830 in Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario 7
   Note: Witnesses: Jacob Gabel, tanner and Samuel Binkley.
   Second Married: 8 AUG 1866 in Ancaster, Wentworth County, Ontario 8
   Note: Elizabeth was the widow of Peter Green when she married John Binkley so records show John Binkley marrying Elizabeth Green (not Elizabeth Weaver).
