William Woodiwiss and Harriett Hunt were the parents of James. I suspect that Mary was a decendant of a British loyalist (a Hessian perhaps?), that was given a land grant in Ontario after the American Revolutionary War. Unfortunately I cannot lay my hands on the information at the moment. My Woodiwiss ancestors came to the U.S. from Sussex, England about 1823. That is as far back as I have gone. There were Woodiwiss families in 3 locations in England at that time. I have yet tie my family to the others.
