HI Dick, this is one of few references I have ever seen to Canada Hunsinger family. My GG Maria Anna Hunsinger was married to Joseph Massel in New Germany (now called Maryhill) in 1854. She was the daughter of Jacob Hunzinger and Anna Maria Neukirch neither of whom I have any information on whatsoever.My only information for Maria Anna is that she died in 1872 and MAY have been from Michigan. but that is only word of mouth.
Her parents are only known because they are listed on the marriage certificate. If you have any information that may be pertinent I would be grateful. You mentioned offspring in Dunnville, Ontario. This would of course support migration from New York State and is "on the way" to Maryhill/Kitchener etc. Many of my others traced similar routes up the Erie Canal to Buffalo and then on to Canada.
One thing more everyone else in my family tree going back to GGs is Catholic. I wonder if the reason these people don't show anywhere is because they a) were not or only the daughters came to Ontario? Again anything that might be useful is appreciated.
