I Can’t Find Lany!

I am having a hard time finding any records for Lany Haines, my 2nd great-aunt. I have found that she was baptized at St. Mark’s Church in what is now Niagara-on-the-lake, but at the time it was Fort George.

My 2nd great-uncle, John Freisman, older brother of Sarah, was also baptized at Fort George. Is it a coincidence that his wife’s name was also Lany, or is this a case of siblings marrying siblings? I don’t think that Lany was a very common name and the population was sparse in Upper Canada so I am looking for any marriage and death records, probably in parish records at St. Mark’s Church. I will have to check next time I’m in the area.
