I'm trying to locate any information on a Hugh Hunter (my 3rd great grandfather), who was born in the early 1800's in the UK and immigrated to Canada in 1851 from Northern Ireland with his wife & children. He married Elizabeth Mitchell, who was born in Northern Ireland. I do not know if Hugh was born in Ireland, Scotland or England however. All his children were born in Northern Ireland.

His children lived in Ontario, and descendants stayed there for the most part. Though, some seem to have moved over to Manitoba. His grandson George lived outside Philadelphia.

I have no information on his parents and it's a real roadblock in my tree! Appreciate any help that can be provided!
