Cornelius Hishon was born in the Toronto Gore township in 1841, he was the only child of his father Cornelius Hishon who died shortly after his birth and his wife Mary. Mary remarried and her married name was Fitzpatrick. I have some documents about this. I am working on history of Toronto Gore township. Not sure what happened to him after that, but when he was 8 years old, his mother applied for patent in his name as only heir of his father who died intestate.
