GREER/GRIER name_game@ca.on.ogs.families 2000-11 published
ROBERTSON : response
An article on the SIMONS family (Ontario Historical Society Papers and Records pp 470-492, vol. 23, 1926) contains an interesting statement that is somewhat at variance with the information given in the query.
"Colonel (Titus GREER/GRIER) SIMONS had three daughters, but no sons. The two elder daughters married two brothers, Messrs. ROBERTSON, Barristers, of Goderich, one of whom, Thomas, later was elevated to a judicial position at Osgoode Hall in Toronto."
Marriage bonds exist for Alexander and Ross ROBERTSON and their respective SIMONS brides, but there is a third bond for Thomas ROBERTSON and Charlotte FISH, both of London, 1832, with bondsmen show as Ira SCHOFIELD and William ROBERTSON.
The names of these bondsmen certainly seem to connect this marriage bond to the family mentioned in the query.
The 1857 Directory of the Province of Ontario shows Thomas ROBERTSON, barrister, residing in Dundas.

GRIFFIN name_game@ca.on.ogs.families 2000-05 published
COULSON : (response)
Gravestone in St. James' Anglican Cem, Toronto :
Corry COULSON died 17 Feb 1848 aged 66y.
Also his adopted dtr Martha COULSON died 4 Oct 1847 age 22 yrs.
From an obit in the Toronto Globe, 23 Feb 1848 :
At his residence, Berkeley Street, Toronto, on Thursday, 17th inst., at an advanced age, Corry COULSON.
He was a native of Ireland, a connection of the family of COULSON of County Fermanagh, and emigrated to Canada about 30 years ago,
settling in Toronto.
Will of Corry COULSON is found in the Home District Surrogate Court and names : wife Elizabeth COULSON alias GRIFFIN and his son and dtr Robert and Mary Jane, sister Irvine DARLING and her dtr Mary Jane WAINWRIGHT, brothers Christopher and Joseph and their sons named Corry, as well as 2 natural (meaning illegitimate) children by Catharine MacLGUN?, John and Mary.

SPAUN/SPOHN : SPRINGSTEEN/ STEAD/ STEED :(response)
There is a marriage record for this family that give Adelia SPOHN's maiden name as WITHERAL, not SPRINGSTEEN :
Elgin Co Mar Register, vol 2 page 41 :
Charles SPOHN, 23 of Saint Thomas, born Canada, son of Peter L. SPOHN and Delia WITHERAL
married on 24 Jan 1866 to Selina COLE age 23 of Saint Thomas, born England, dtr of Samuel COLE and Mary ROCKEY.
They were married by Reverend George CUTHBERTSON of Saint Thomas, Presb,
with Robert CARRIE of Saint Thomas as witness.
The same mar reg shows the 1865 marriage of Wesley SPOHN of Ancaster (son of Philip) to Eliza GRIFFIN of Sparta, so there was certainly some
movement of the SPOHN family back and forth between the Ancaster and Saint Thomas areas.
