Personal History

1812 - Birth: birth needs to be confirmed.

1848 - Immigration: In 1848, Mary Irwin and her son Hugh Irwin immigrated to Canada. Source is 1901 Canada census. However, the 1911 census says that both she and Hugh Irwin immigrated in 1862. NOTE: While not explicitly sourced, it appears that Robert and Mary Irwin immigrated to Canada in 1848 with their two children, William and Hugh.

1952 - Death and Burial: Death in July 1852 in Goderich needs to be confirmed. - Cannot locate a death record. (However it is unlikely there would be one because it was not required prior to 1869 in Ontario.)
