Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Hugh Buckberrough was born on 8 April 1832 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of George Buckberrough and Sarah Coleman.1 He married Sarah (--?--).1 He died on 28 December 1907 at Bowling Green, Kentucky, at age 75.1 The U.S. censuses of 1870 and 1880 are the basis for the names and dates. Eunice and James Lawrason's Golden Wedding newspaper notice from 1897 places Eunice's brother H. Buckberrough in Detroit. This can onlybe Hugh, though in 1870 and 1880 I actually find him at Attica, Lapeer, Michigan. I have not yet located Hugh in the 1910 U.S. census.

His death date, which comes from trees that I have seen on the web, is no doubt correct. His son Wallace was at Bowling Green in both the 1900 and 1910 U.S. census, and he may have spent his last years with Wallace. One story I find on the web is that there was a family tradition of a 'break' with the family in Canada. Since he attended the Golden Wedding Anniversary of his sister Eunice Lawrason in 1897, he must have gotten on with her well enough.

That I have not found Hugh in the 1900 census is likely a transcription problem.

It should be pointed out that any records that I have found for Hugh indicate that he and his descendants went by Buckberry. This may be closer to the original name of the family. The family in Canada seems tohave settled spelling the name as Buckberrough and I have left the tree this way, at least at this point, for consistency.

There are problems with my information for Hugh. He may have died prior to 1890. This requires another look.1
