I am searching for Agness Hamilton b: approx 1854 m: James Coffey in County Down before 1878.
They had the following children, William (1878), James (1881) m: Alice Leathem, Ellen (Helen also known as Nellie), Laura m: Secord, Jack/John m: Cunningham , Robert Roy m: Crowder. May possibly be more children.
This family immigrated to Cardinal Ontario Canada in 1883 via Halifax.
James and William (sons) worked at the Canada Starch Company in Cardinal Ontario. in the 1901 Census, they are listed as "labourers, earning 350 / 400 (?))
Also on the 1901 Census, The father is no longer living as Agness is listed as 'head of household, widowed'
If anyone has any information, please e-mail me, or answer this posting. I am sooo close.. sigh.
