    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.

      * Neighbours on this census to Samuel Card m. Hannah VV who were living at Con 12 Lot 21 at this time with a young family and who later moved to northern Ontario, then Manitoulin Island. Perhaps George VV and Hannah VV-Card were related.

      Also on this census for Portland, Frontenac - a Willson Mattis, potentially a relation to Unis. Actual name was Mattice but both Unis at her marriage and Wilson Mattice and his father Peter Mattice, spelled their names as Mattis.
