Great Grandfather: Ben Huskins - b. 1895
Great Grandmother: Leah - b. 1897(?)

Grandfather (only child): Norbert - b. 1922
[He married a Gougeon, the folks that now run the former Huskins Boatworks.]

Father (only child): Robert - b. 1942

I was told that the original spelling meant "shipwright" from someone who speaks modern Dutch pretty well. I know a "huskin", in old English, is a light archer's helmet, but I suspect that this is dumb luck. (I have a reference for the later, but not the former.)
