Bless you both, for trying to help me on this. Irret if you think it's bugging you, you ought to see me. I'm just about bald ( pulling my hair out over this)
  Did find out from a cousin yesterday, that William was a tailor in Scotland . Also his father was a tailor.
  When he went to Canada, he decided to change occupations, he became a farmer.

 Just found out through the family. That William Hotson was a tailor when he lived in Scotland. Also his father was a tailor ( how they knew the occaption of William's father and not his name is beyond me ) He also had a brother that went to Canada after william did. Still looking for the father.
  Did find Anges Ashcroft's ( William's wife ) Father in Canada. He also came Scotland.  If anyone has any informatiom on a John Ashcroft born ABT 1815, don't know where. His wife's name was possibly Margaret.
   Any help would be appreciated.

Canada Lookup Request / William Hotson to Port Hope Canada

 William Hotson born 1820 in Canonbie Scotland came to Canada sometime between 1850 and 1855 , notsure.      He married Agnes Ashcroft in 1855 in Port Hope.
He mirgrated to the U. S. in 1875 . But would like to where he lived while in Canada.
  Also have no information on Agnes Ashcroft. She was born in Scotland in 1840.Came to Canadain 1841, I think. Would like to find out the names of her parents. Some of the family members think her father's name was John. Any information would be greatly welcomed.

 It worked, I found it. But can't connect this side with of the family to my William Hotson. Going to try and run down this Hugh Hotson, he could be the one.
 Again thanks so much for the help.

 I found the first one you sent today and copied it off, I did that yesterday,
 The Notes on Alexander Hotson I couldn't bring it up, typed it in several times but couldn't get it to work. What am I doing wrong? Am very interested in looking at this, have never seen it before. Couldn't find the one on Google either.
 The third one is new to me also, didn't know there was a Hugh Hotson, have never seen that in all my searching. I did a search on him in Roots Web but could not find anything on him.
 About Scots People have not got there yet, will have to wait a little while on that one.
 Thank you so much for all the help you are giving me.

Have been trying to find the parents of William Hotson born 15 Jan 1820 in Canonbie, Scotland. Have no luck at all. He went to Canada around 1850. He married Anges Ashcroft 1855 in Port Hope Canada, they had 11 children. Then went to the United States in 1875, settled in Missouri , Kansas the to Oklahoma. Was in the land rush of 1893 in Oklahoma. He died in 1906 in Hayward Oklahoma. We have looked and looked for his parents with no luck. Any help would be welcomed.
 Fairly well sure the spelling is right on the name.
 Have a letter written by an A.E. Hotson stating that he was the brother of William.
 Also that the great-grandmother was Grizel Nichol who married Alexander Hotson their son William went to England and died there in 1866. Another dead end.
Other sons went to Canada. But can't make the connection between this William and them.
Also they are cousins to the Beattie's. One of Williams sons is named William Beattie Hotson.
Alexander and Grizel's daughter married a William Beattie. The mystery thickens.
Still stumped, but not giving up.
