THOMAS BUTTERS and his wife BETSY HODGE raised the HUE orphans after AMELIA's husband died at sea a year later. One of these youngsters was Phillip Frederick Hue who founded the American Oil Company. My cousin has a portrait of BETSY hanging above her fireplace.
Other Links for the girls from marriage include HUE (Amelia); TURNBULL & KIDD (Eliza); McGROTTY & MAGEE (Emma)-through marriage.
EMMA BUTTERS was married to an Unknown McGROTTY and had a daughter EMMA McGROTTY who was 8 years old according to the 1851 Census and a native of St John, New Brunswick. Both were living with Emma Butters parents in St JOhn. There is no listing for the husband McGrotty at the address. However, Amelia Butters HUE and Elizabeth Butters KIDD were also living there and their husbands were not listed either.
CAPT. Phillip HUE was Amelias husband. Possibility the other husbands were at sea as well.
EMMA later married an Unknown MAGEE.
If this helps let me know. I realize this is a shot in the dark
