Re: Irish immigrants to Canada/STINSON

Classification: Query
Surnames: Stinson, Stenson, Stinston
I'm researching the name Stinson/Stenson/Stinston.

Thomas Frances? Stinson, b. 1833-1836 Ireland
and
William A. Stinson, youngest son of Thomas (above) and Mary McLelland/McClelland (1836-1882), b. abt 1869, shown on 1871 census (Cavan Twp, Durham, Ontario) and 1881 census (Manvers Twp, Durham, Ontario). He is possibly a lodger in Markdale in 1891 census but have not found any other record in Cdn. census or a death record anywhere.

As indicated in earlier postings, I have Thomas being married in Cavan Twp in 1855, no parents are shown on marriage record. Then the censuses from 1861-1891, then nothing. Again not showing up again, either in Canadian census (checked 1901 & 1911) or Ontario death records.

Family rumour has it that Thomas might have gone to Niagara Falls area and got involved in a hotel, but haven't found anything in that area either.

Any suggestions on a next step?
