I am seeking burial or any other information regarding my gg-grandmother (widowed) Hannah Maria Clapp Osterhout living with adult Osterhout children and son-in-law John Livingston (married to daughter Margaret) in both thee 1881 and 1891 CA Census.
Hannah has been a bonafide mystery for me and I have not found anything prior to her marriage to Henry Osterhout in 1850 or after 1891.

Subject: Hugh Cameron (abt 1793 – 10 JUL 1875)

Message Body:
I am trying to do genealogy on my family and I have traced my Cameron relatives back to your town of Ramara, Ontario.  I’m stuck on my 3rd Great Grandfather, Hugh Cameron (abt 1793 – 10 July 1875) born in Scotland.  Hugh Cameron shows up on the 1851, 1861 and 1871 census’ as living in Mara & Rama.  I found a burial document that shows he was buried in Beaverton, Durham, Ontario in Union Cemetery. (can’t find this cemetery anywhere)  Even if I do find the cemetery, I’m not sure if it will provide his full date of birth or specific birth place, but that is my goal. 
Hugh Cameron married Catherine Thomson on June 23, 1823 in Greenock, Renfrewshire, Scotland, and had four children (Daniel, Catherine, Alexander and John). At some point between 1845 and 1851 his family traveled to Mara & Rama, Ontario, Canada where Hugh lived and passed away on July 10, 1875.
I believe that Hugh had a brother Angus who also lived in Mara & Rama.  I have strong evidence that they were descendants of Sir Ewen Cameron, a prominent Cameron Chieftan in the 1600’s.  Any additional information you know of would be extremely helpful.

From: Carol Hunter
Subject: Search for Grandfather

Message Body:
My grandfather was born in May 1870 in Carden-Dalton township.  The first record I can find of him is in the 1871 census where he is shown to be living with Donald and Margaret McDonald and their family – the name on the census is Martin McFadyn.  Apparently he was born of a single mother and by the 1881 census had been adopted by the McDonalds and was known as Martin McDonald.
Would you be able to help me track down his birth parents?  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
