Hi - My 2x grt Gma was Isabella Chisholm, a dau of Hugh and Catherine. She was b. abt 1842, m. Halifax 1869, and died Albion Mines 1880-81.
I think I have found father Hugh and family in Little Harbor 1851 census, and the widow Catherine in 1881 cens living with son's family. I am trying to determine if this is the right family, and if so, who Isabella's siblings were, mother's maiden name, etc.
There MIGHT have been 2 couples named Hugh and Catherine Chisholm in this time frame, since I find some marriages for children in Sutherland's River area. Here are guesses for children of Hugh and Catherine: Isabella m William Greer 1869 Hugh m Elizabeth Ross 1870 *** and maybe... Daniel Chisholm m Margaret McDonald 1867 Catherine Fraser Chisholm m Donald Cameron 1873
This last one might give a clue to Catherine Sr's maiden name if it is their daughter.
*** Best clue I have is that this Hugh Jr & Elizabeth lived past 1911 and had these children: Alford (?), John H., Jane, James W. Chisholm.
