Hi Debbie, It sounds as though we might have the same family. William Hughson was born c.1837 in Amaranth. He married Mary Kennedy at Erin,Ont. on October 31,1860. They had two known children Isaac Nelson bornc.1862 and William Leonard bornc. 1864. After the 1871 census I lost the parents and after the 1881 census I lost the two children. Mystery?
I also have a Susan Hughson1-29-1842 to 1-8-1918. She married Michael Cyrus Kennedy a brother to Mary. Susan had eight known children. Does this help?
Thanks for contacting me and e-mail direct if you wish. I am willing to share and exchange info. Thanks Chuck
