    Samuel Card / Caird is shown living at Lot 21 Con XII Portland Twp. on the 1851 Agricultural Census (outlined in yellow). Nearby to the west in shaded yellow are Samuel's possible families of origin, near Moscow village in Camden Twp.

    A possible family of origin for Hannah Melissa VV may be Paulus VV and Meribeth Trompour. On this 1860 map, Paulus is living at the crossroads of Moscow village outlined in green. Other intermarried families near Moscow include: Patterson, Garrison, Switzer, etc.

    Another possible family relation for Hannah Melissa VV may be Geo VV-Eunice Mattis family. On the same 1851 Agricultural Census, George VV is living at Lot 13 of the 7th Concession of Portland Twp. On this 1860 map, that lot is outlined in purple. By 1861 George and Eunis had moved out of the township.

    * By the 1861 census, Samuel and Melissa had moved south to Storrington Twp.; this may be why his name is not on the map despite him owning 200 acres.

      * VV neighbours on this census to the extended families of Paulus VV who lived just west near the village of Moscow across the county line in Camden Twp., Lennox-Addington. See map and the proximity of Paulus VV to the many Card descendants in that area. This is likely where Samuel was born.

      Also in the area to the south: George VV m. Unis Mattis who were living at Con 7 Lot 13, Portland Twp., Frontenac Co. What branch does Hannah Melissa VV come from?
