I am interested in their origins - family history says they were both born in Ireland and met and married in Morrisburg while census data gives both birthplaces as Canada.  Sarah's maiden name was BARRY.  I am descended from their daughter Catherine who married Thomas Foley and lived near Finch, Ontario.

SearchingCORBETT

Query:
In the Family Tree Maker Canadian Index, there is a listing for a Rev. John Corbett.  The entry states that he was married in 1843, in New Ross, Dundas County.  This listing came from Wm. D. Reid's Marriage Notices of Ontario (Pg.177-178).  Does anyone have access to this book, and if so, could they look this up for me?
Thanks!
