I have search the norwegian 1865 census, and not found this Francis Hughes born 1859 (+/- 1 year). Francis is not a common name in Norway, so he may have taken the name when he came to the US. The same for Hughes, it is not common in Norway.

Do you know anything about the immigration that may help in the search?

What is your source for Francis being born in Norway? Do you have a copy of his death certificate? Where did he live in the USA? When and where did he die? Where were the children born?

According to the 1930 US Census Albert Arthur's father was born in Canada and was English. However, his wife Dorothy, her father was from Norway. That is the only reference to Norway I find on the family. What is Dorothy's fathers name???
