PIDGEONs of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada

In the 1901 census, Robert Pidgeon of Windsor, NS gives his birth on 8 June 1848 in Ontario, and both himself and his wife as of Irish descent. The only such person to be found earlier in Ontario was the son of George and Catherine Pidgeon, living at Niagara Township, Ont in 1851, when Robert was 2 years old. However, in the 1901 census, this Robert Pidgeon, born August 1949 in Ontario, was still living with his Irish father George at Hamilton, Ont. So the father of the Windsor Robert, below, is unknown, but came from Ireland, according to the 1891 census.

Robert and most of his family eventually moved west to Vancouver, while his son William Henry was married in Montreal.
