Hello!
Would anyone have information on Simon Hughes who received 100 acres in Goulbourn 26/03/1824. 
He had been in the 99th. Regiment. He married Emily Shepherd. The first child (I believe 
him to be the eldest) of whom I have a Baptism is Thomas, b. Feb. 21, bap. Aug. 29, 1831 
at Notre Dame. I do not have a Marriage for the parents. They moved to the Quebec area and 
a child. Elias, was baptized at St. Stephen, Chelsea in May,1848. Thank you,
