I am looking for information about my ggg grandparents, Robert Howison and Nancy Wadleigh Howison who lived in Kingsey Falls, Quebec for a time but may also have lived in Monpelier, VT in the early part of the 19th century. I am also seeking information about their son, my gg grandfather, John Wadleigh Howison, born in Kingsey Falls, Quebec in 1822. His son, William Howison, my great great uncle, was born in Montpelier, Vt. on Nov. 24, 1844. He served in the Civil War in the Vermont Artillery and later moved to Chippewa Falls, WI, where his father John Howison was already living.

Any information would be very helpful.

Robert R. Howieson was also the father of James B. Howieson (John Wadleigh Howieson's brother). James B. is my GG grandfather. Robert B. Howieson was born in 1774 and died 4/6/1855. He is buried in Maplewood Cemetary, Drummond County, Quebec. Nancy Wadleigh Howieson was born either in Danville, Vt. or Danville, Que on 4/2/1792. She died 9/19/1863. I believe they had at least 4 children: your John Wadleigh Howieson, born 1822 Kingsey Falls, Que., Robert ?, Margaret ? and James B. born 10/30/1820 in Shipton, Quebec, died July 13, 1901 Elmore, Vermont. James B. married and had at least 4 children who all remained in and around the Elmore and Worcester, Vt. area. These towns are about 15 miles north of Montpelier, Vermont.
One of Elgin's son's, Fred Blaisdell Howieson, made his way out to British Columbia in the early part of the 20th Century. He was a lumberman. Nancy Wadleigh's mother's maiden name was Blaisdell.
