This part of Brantford Twp. is the east side of the village of Brantford at a convergence of rail and roads that by 1858 is known as Cainsville. In this community also lives the Asa P. Smith family whose son Adolphus Smith will marry Jane Lauzau.]

      [Age and birthplace details are wrong, perhaps because they were supplied by the Walshes, owner of the hotel where Charles Lauzau resides at this time. Charles is living at the Burlington Hotel 380 Brant St., formerly operated by the DiGarmos and now by Patrick and Bridget Walsh. The hotel is in view of the Ogg home and cooperage on Pine St. After 1910 known as Hotel Raymond.]
