  • Notes 
    • I suspect Sarah is the daughter of Jonathan Nevills and Sophia Roberts who appear in the 1871 census in Wilmot Twp., though the family must have moved to Bothwell shortly after being enumerated as they are also in the Bothwell census. Sarah was the eldest, born about 1843, and had another child, 23 August 1872, named Anna Bella Nevills whose birth was registered in Bright by James Pogson. It was not marked "illegitimate", but Anna Bella named her grandparents as her parents at her marriage.

      Jonathan was the brother of Titus Geer Simons Nevills (one-time mayor of New Hamburg) and Abraham Nevills. Their father was William Nevills of West Flamborough.

      Jonathan appears in the 1864, 1867 and 1870-71 directories of Waterloo County as a labourer:

      1864 Waterloo County Gazetter:

      Nevills, Jonathan b a 1 - 21 - h (conc. 1 line 21)
      Nevills, Jonathan, laborer, Haysville

      1867 Gazeteer & directory: J. Nevils, Haysville, laborer

      1870-71 Gazeteer & General Business Directory, Perth & Waterloo: Nevils, Jonathan - Bl. Con R. Lot 20 h Wilmot Twp Waterloo Cty
