Notes:  Edward Hollinshead was born in Laskay, King Twp., York, Ontario.  The surname Hollinshead has been spelled many different ways in marriage, census and death records.  Often a "g" is put in.  His parents were Samuel Hollinshead and Elizabeth Davis.  He was in the middle of eleven brothers and sisters.  In 1861 the family was living in King Twp., York, Ontario.

Edward married Susan Detwiller on 14 Mar 1876 in St.Marys, Perth, Ontario.

In 1876, Edward and Susan immigrated to the United States.  They had a daughter named Ina who was born in 1879 when they were living in Illinois. In 1880 they are found living in Lyons City, Clinton, Iowa with Edward's brother, Horace Hollinshead, and his family.  Their daughter Ina was one year old.  Edward was an engineer, and Susan was keeping house.

In July 1892, Edward and Susan had a son named Horace A., born in Iowa.  Another son Ernest W., was born in May of 1886 in Canada.  Edward and Susan returned to the United States in 1887, and a daughter Marian N. was born in Sep 1894 in Wisconsin.  Edward died 13 Aug 1896 in Trempealeau, Trempealeau, Wisconsin.  Trempealeau lies on the Mississippi River, and Edward was a river captain at the time of his death.  His cause of death, Ataxia, is the inability to control muscular movement, which can be caused by numerous medical conditions.

Edward was buried in the Trempealeau Cemetery, and it is presumed that Susan is buried next to him.
