    Three pages of census records provide a significant amount of information regarding the family as all but Sarah Jane resided in the townships of Howick, Ontario. The records also include Thomas, reportedly the brother of Joseph M Driver, appears but the remainder of suspected siblings does not.

    The arrival date for the Driver family can also be narrowed. Joseph Henry, the youngest son was born in Ireland in 1849. The eldest grandchild (William's daughter, Mary) was born, it appears in 1856. That provides an estimated arrival between 1849-1856.
