I found that Hugh Fennell married Margaret Ann Tate July 5, 1893 in Amaranth, Dufferin County, Ontario
it states that he was a widower at the time of his marriage, thus the presumption that he was married before.
Also have that Hugh had a daughter called Mary Elizabeth Fennell born 23 June 1881, so presumably she is by his first wife, hence another reason or assumption that there was a first wife.
Sorry that my question was so short, first time I have used this site.
trying to make a connection to Hiram HUGHSON FENNELL....possible connection to my aunt's mother....1st cousins, but we don't know my aunt's mother's father's name...
confusing I know......
hoping to find some living relatives that might know something about her mother, grandmother and grandfather.
Just in case - the line we are trying to connect to is Mary Christie mother of Caroline Margaret Christie....father unknown born in Manitoba, Canada
