Looking for information on parents (and one more brother) of the following Kent County, New Brunswick people, whom I believe are all siblings:

1. Nathaniel HUTCHINSON, abt 1820-1893, burial unknown, married Margaret TURNBULL, 6 known children

2. Mary HUTCHINSON, b abt 1822- d 1882, buried St. Andrews Cemetery, Rexton (died at residence of her brother Robert)

3. Robert HUTCHINSON (lawyer), 1825-1910, buried Richibucto Protestant Cemetery, married Jane POWELL (dau of Captain Sylvanus Powell & Sarah), no children

4. Edmund HUTCHINSON, 1827-1892, buried St. Andrew's Cemetery, Rexton, married Mary Ann JOHNSON, 8 known children

Newspaper article:
Date May 26, 1892
Newspaper The Daily Sun
Richibucto (Kent Co.) May 25 - The promising symptoms for the recovery of Edmund HUTCHINSON continued until Saturday last when his condition became more serious and he died on Saturday. Mr. Hutchinson was engaged in many different pursuits during his time, including farming, store keeping, fishing, building bridges and wharves and auctioneering. He was also employed of late years by the Dominion government in putting the annual repairs on the breakwater at the mouth of the harbor. The deceased was 65 years of age and resided at Kingston and vicinity all his life. He leaves a wife and family, also SEVERAL BROTHERS. The funeral took place here yesterday afternoon from the residence of his brother, Robert HUTCHINSON, Q.C. where he was taken ill a week ago, the remains being taken to Kingston for burial.

5. Jane HUTCHINSON, b abt 1830- d 1884, buried St. Andrew's Cemetery, Rexton, "second and only surviving daughter of late James HUTCHINSON, Esq" (died at residence of her brother Robert)

6. Nancy HUTCHINSON, b abt 1834- d 1869, buried St. Andrews Cemetery, Rexton, "youngest daughter of James & Nancy"

Known spouse surnames down through the generations of Nathaniel & Edmund:

I have more data/details, but have tried to keep this condensed.

MY GOAL is to determine if my great-great grandfather John HUTCHINSON was a brother to the 6 people at top.

John HUTCHINSON 1831-1903 married Elizabeth STEVENSON 1839-1928 (daughter of John & Mary STEVENSON).
Married July 1861 per New Brunswick Newspaper Vital Statistics: "At residence of bride's father, by Rev. James Law, John Hutcheson, Merchant, Richibucto (Kent Co.), / Elizabeth Stevenson youngest d/o Mr. Stevenson, same place."

1871 Census, Richibucto, C3, Kent Co., NB:
Family #99, Religion: Presbyterian
Name, Sex, Age, Birthplace
JOHN HUTCHINSON M 40 New Brunswick Origin: English Occupation: farmer
Sub District/Division: C-3

NEXT DOOR, Family #100 - I wonder if this is John's father?
JAMES HUTCHINSON M 85 England Religion: Presbyterian Origin: English
Occupation: blacksmith
NANCY HUTCHINSON F 73 Prince Edward Island
MARY HUTCHINSON F 42 New Brunswick

Hoping to discover the parents & siblings of my gr-gr-grandfather John Hutchinson 1831-1903. Glad to share information I have collected regarding the above families during my search for a connection.
