Hi All Pringle Researchers,
I keep noting there are alot of researchers who seem to think and put in their tree that Joseph Lockwood Pringle was married to Deborah nee Dafoe. So to help set the record straight- the 2 men were NOT the same people. Lockwood married Sarah McNeal/McNeill while the other married Deborah Dafoe. Both men along with their families can be found on the same census material for Lennox& Addignton at the same time. Eventually Lockwood moved to Michigan where he remarried a 2nd time to a Mary Ann Anticknap( spelling is as per their marriage record at Tuscola,MI)
I can not say where Lockwood Pringle fits in the Prinle line at Lennox and Addington ( he was born abt 1808 to 1810 at Kingston Ont) but he does fit somewhere with the Pringles brothers who settled the area as per this info:
PRINGLE, WILLIAM ALLEN, teacher, farmer, apiarist, free thinker, and pamphleteer; b. 1 April 1841 in Richmond Township, Upper Canada, second son of Lockwood Pringle and Sarah McNeill (McNeal); m. first 1869 Grace Agnes Pratt (d. 1872); m. secondly 2 July 1873 Emma Grace McLeod, and they had one daughter, Grace; d. 22 July 1896 in Selby, Ont.
William Allen Pringle, known throughout his life as Allen, came from a prominent family whose loyalist forebears had served in the King’s Rangers before settling in the Cataraqui (Kingston) area of Upper Canada. Allen’s father, like many of his ancestors, combined farming with religious work, serving as a licensed Methodist preacher in the Selby area in the 1860s.
