Born: 04 May, 1822 in Colne, Lancashire, England

I'm looking for his parents, grandparents, etc. He married sisters Mary then Elizabeth Richardson of Colne.

Nothing on him. My wife's Rushton relatives were in Nova Scotia and Kent, Ontario.

Do you think he had a brother named Absolem or Absalam or Absolam born in 1823.

Thank you for your query, Gerladine. We here in Canada cannot find any document about his birth. His marriage to Mary Richardson showed his father's name as James. Another descendent claims his mother's name was Margaret Shoesmith. I can't find any supporting evidence. - Beth

Yes, I'm aware of the Nova Scotia Rushtons, but I don't believe we have a connection. Thanks for your reply, Jay.
