I'm searching for an Alexander/ Hutchison connection in Canada and maybe you can help!
My g-grandfather was Hugh Hutchison (or Hutchinson) Alexander (b. 10 Oct. 1847 in Tuckersmith, Ontario) and it seems clear to me that Hutchison must have been a family name they wanted to preserve in Hugh's name (a trend that was carried on down from Hugh, too)
Hugh's parents were William Alexander and Annie ??? and I am >fairly< certain they hailed from Scotland. They settled in Ontario and Hugh and his wife Elizabeth Elcoat moved to Manitoba in 1887.
Does it sound like there could be any connection to your Alexanders or Hutchisons?
