1371 AMENZO F. OATMAN
1371 AMENZO F.7 (Charles6, Darius5, Benjamin4, George3, John2, Johannes1), son of Charles and Dorliska H. (Bunce) Oatman, was born at Springford, Oxford County, Ontario, 23 June 1852 (gravestone says 1851), and died in 1893.
On 26 September 1888 at the home of the bride's father in Tillsonburg, Amenzo married Marietta Kelly, who was born in 1862 and died in May 1949. Another marriage took place the same day by the same minister, Rev. D. B. Cohoe, also at the home of the "bride's father", between Charles Churchill and Miss Kate Kelly, presumably the sister of Marietta. Marietta died in her 87th year in London, Ontario. Her obituary states that “she spent her early life in the Summerville district. After the death of her husband, she and her son went to Centralia, Washington and about 25 years ago they returned to Canada, and she lived at Aylmer until 1940, and had resided in London since that time.”
In 1901, "Nettie" was widowed and living in South Norwich Township with her son Edward, and three lodgers.
Both Amenzo and Marietta are buried in the Springford Cemetery.
