I am searching for information about my great-grandfather Hugh Dinan, born somewhere in Ireland in 1830. He emigrated to Canada. The Port Hope, Ontario census of 1851 lists him as single, 21, occupation -servant. He married a Bridget Meehan, of Irish extraction b. 1830 or 31 in Canada a year or so later. They lived near Port Hope for awhile, then in Moore Township, Ont. near Sarnia until around 1886, when they purchased a farm in Linwood, MI, USA. Their children were Mary, Ellen, Thomas, Matthew, Hugh, Elizabeth, Rosa, John, Bridget, Nanc/Anna, Jane, Catherine. I'm trying to determine Hugh Dinan's birthplace in Ireland in 1830-31, and the name of his parents, or his port of entry to Canada or the ship he came over on. Matthew, b. 1858-60 in Linwood, MI, USA is my grandfather. The name is also spelled Dining.
