I was just reading my reply to your original message and thinking that I DO know that the Hill name and the Powless name are very intertwined. If you go to the National Archives site they have a genealogical site that I found some census info that may help you. The web address for the NA is http://www.archives.ca/08/08_e.html.http://www.archives.ca/08/08_e.html. This is a site on the NA site that is also good: http://www.archives.ca/02/0201200107_e.htmlhttp://www.archives.ca/02/0201200107_e.html This is the search engine for the 1871 Ontario census: http://www.archives.ca/02/02010802_e.htmlhttp://www.archives.ca/02/02010802_e.html. This is a great tool!!
