    • She grew up in Fredricksburgh Twp, on C4, L10. This property had been granted to her future father-in-law, Jacob Powley who held title to it from 1785 until 1803. Her father, Thomas Wager, then claimed the land where he had lived for 18 years. [See petition of Thomas Wager, Ontario Archives RG1-A II-5, Heir & Devisee Records, transcribed here.] -- "2 May 1803, -- No. 4 -- Thomas Wager of the Township of Fredricksburgh in Midland District, yeoman, claims the E½ L10, C4, of Fredricksburgh, originally drawn by himself, a soldier in the late Royal Yorkers. -- [Petition] allowed -- Claimant was placed on the lot by McKay, the principal officer of the settlement, upon the relinquishment of Jacob Powley, who first drew it and is on the map. And Wager has lived on the lot 18 years [since 1785] to the knowledge of the members of the board. -- [Petition allowed.]" The lot was registered to Thomas Wager in 1803.
