Daniel Stinson would be my grt grt grandfather. I cannot find ANY information on him online in Canada. I know he married in Ireland to Catherine (sp?) McManus (sp?) and travelled to Canada with his son Philip (my grt grandfather).

Unfortunately that generation did not speak of "families" like we are searching today so the stories I have heard are exactly that ....... stories ......

If anyone can give me any assistance it would be most appreciated. Dates of birth or even marriage, counties, towns, villages.........especially nice.

 

Thank you so very much

Hi Deborah,

Not sure what part of Canada they settled in, but there is a Stinson family in Pittsburgh, Frontenac Co. on the 1861 Census. The family is given as:

Catherine Stinson Age 40; Daniel Stinson Age 50; William Stinson Age 18; (James or Philip?) Stinson Age 16; Mathias Stinson Age 14

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1861/Pages/item.aspx?itemid=1556988

The same family is enumerated in 1851 as the Stanson family:

Daniel Age 50; Catherine Age 37; Philip Age 15; William Age 10; James age 7; Mathias Age 1.

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1851/Pages/item.aspx?itemid=1324444

In Census 1871 at Howe Island, Pittsburg, we find a Philip and Matthias with a widower named Bridget Stinson Age 60

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1871/Pages/item.aspx?itemid=679477

Given that there are interred at Catarqui Cemetery a Phillip, Matthias, And other Stinson's, I would guess that Daniel and Catherine are buried there, if not on the homestead.
