3 Hinchey brothers who came to Canada during the potato famine?

Hi there,

Anybody related to the three Hinchey brothers who left Ireland during the famine. One brother went to Ontario, one brother went to PEI and the other brother went to Newfoundland. My father's family are the descendants of the brother who went to Newfoundland. My father's father was William J. Hinchey, who started a General store in Bridgeport, Nova Scotia. He at one point had six ( I think) stores between Bridgeport, New Waterford, and Sydney. My grandfather Patrick M. Hinchey ran the ones in New Waterford and eventually my father took control over one store.
My grandfather had a "Family Tree" done years ago and it was traced back to the 12th century. If anyone has information that may be missing?
