Ann Ciphery came to Canada with her parents c.1852 and can be found in the 1861 census in Cavan ON. She married John Grose [who's occupation is given as a Farmer] 27 Nov. 1872 in Durham Co. ON. In the 1871 census, John is a 21 year old Farm Labourer, living with a young family named Adams. 1881 census John now had 4 children [aged between 10 months and 7 years] along with Ann;s widowed mother. Nearby is John's widowed father. John's occupation is a Farmer. 1891 census John now had 9 children at home [aged between 1 year and 17] along with Ann's widowed mother. John's occupation is now a Labourer. They now live in the town of Peterborough. John died of Pneumonia 17 May 1891 in Peterborough and is buried at Little Lake Cemetery, Peterborough. From his death certificate it would appear his occupation is listed as Teamster. So we have Ann a 41 year old widow with 9 children, her 85 year old widowed mother and no apparent occupation. I don't know her address in '91 but in 1893 she shows up in the Peterborough Register with her son John [aged 17 years]and daughter Susan [aged 19 years] both children employed, living at 348 Charlotte St., Peterborough. Future censuses  still has 8 children at home [youngest aged 11] and most of these children have gainful employment. No occupation listed for Ann and by 1911 only 3 children [aged 20 to 26] were living with her at 148 Rubidge St. and the same 3 children were still there in 1921. It would appear that 148 Rubidge may have been a Rooming House. Ann was still a resident of 148 Rubidge when she died at the Nicholls Hospital, Peterborough on 22 March 1935. She was aged 84. Her daughter Mary was the informant and Mary was unmarried and lived with her mother on Rubidge. Ann is buried at Little Lake Cemetery. I have not be able to find out anything more about Ann's life after the death of John, but on the surface it would appear that she was supported in later life by her children. I wonder if there exists a Will that could fill in some blanks - but so far not found.
