Fields In Grimsby

Finding Your Roots on PBS revealed that Sally Field had ancestors who lived in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada, in 1851.

What if my Grimsby ancestors were near neighbors?  A check of the 1851 census found that both the Fields and the Powers' were in Enumeration District #7.

Next Door Was John Morden Field and Elizabeth (Vrooman) Field

Close enough for government work!
