  • Notes 
    • - In the 1900 census, Emma Hunt, b. 1864, England, says she arrived in the U.S. in 1889. She married James Holmes just two years later in October of 1891 so it is likely she came directly to Ogdensburg. Also in the 1900 census in Ogdensburg are Thomas Hunt and wife Emily, both born in England, he in Feb 1859 and she in 1862. They also say they arrived in the U.S. in 1889. They have a daughter Cassy, b. 1893, Ogdensburg. Since they arrived at the same time and went to the same place, I think it very likely that Thomas Hunt is Emily's brother. I found several references to Thomas and his family before they left Ogdensburg on April 16, 1912, for Calgary, Alberta, where they he expected to go into the truck gardening business.
      There's another note in the Journal just three years later: May 28, 1915: Thomas Hunt wired here last night from Calgary that his wife had passed away there May 26, 1915. I have not been able to find a full obituary for either Thomas, his wife or Emma, which might list a relationship or the names of parents. But I did find this in the Journal a year before they left Ogdensburg: "Feb. 18, 1911: Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hunt and daughter arrived home this morning from Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England, where they have been spending several months. Grimsby is the native town of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt." And so I renewed searches in England. The only applicable census is 1861 and while there are many Hunts in Grimsby, I cannot find Thomas or either Emily.
