The following queries (Q5529 to Q5539) were posted to this website on 10 October 2017.

Q5529-ANDREWS: I am attempting to trace my family connection to captain and mrs F.G.Andrews. He was the Captain of the sailing ship Timandra. In 1860.
  My mother had a small sewing box complete with several carved ivory items inside for thread, needles etc.  the card with it says it was given to Mrs. F.G. Andrews during her visit to Burma in 1860.  Her husband was F.G.Andrews, Capt of the sailing ship Tamanda.  They would probably be connected to me through John Main, his daughter Isabel Renwick or her husband William Johnston Smith who are all from Rexton according to my information.
   The Andrews were residents of St. Andrews By the Sea according to the card accompanying the box.
    Information linking the Main/Smith families to the Andrews would be much appreciated.

Q5530-DEAN:  I am a descendant of Peter Dean 1800-1890 and his wife Bridget (Caulfield). Peter first settled in Wards Creek Kings County and moved to Saint John in about 1877. He died at his son Thomas's home in 1890.
  Bridget died on Brussels Street in Saint John in 1879. (I have also seen her name as Elizabeth - so her headstone could say Elizabeth instead of Bridget)
  I'm looking for their graves. I believe they are buried in St John. I gave you the Brussel street address as perhaps they attended the RC church in that neighbourhood and would be buried near by. I have other details of their life if needed.

Q5531-IRVING: I am researching my family history but, like many people I have hit a road block. I'm stuck on my 4th great grandparents (George Irving and Agnes Irving (MCWhirr) who came over from Dumfriesshire Scotland in the early 1800's. They landed in Musquash St John, family legend goes that George was one of the lucky ones who were granted land by King George. I have more information on them after they arrived than before they left their home in the UK. I was told by a nice lady who was working one of the tents at the Moncton Highland Games this weekend that you may be able to help me. If you think you may be able to, I would be happy to send along more information about them and their children ( they had 8 children in total. Two of the boys would become a ship's captain and a master mariner, a third son became a reverend in the Baltimore Baptist Church in Albert County NB)  I would love to be abe to find a death certificate for George and Agnes so that I can finally get their parents names but any kind of help would be very much appreciated, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

Q5535-MURRAY: I am trying to figure out how to get a birth record from Murray Corner in Westmorland.  I am looking for the birth of Mary Louise Murray.  She was the 10th child (or the 6th daughter) of James Murray and Mary Cartman Dobson, born on 15 August 1858 at Murray Road, Westmoreland.  James and Mary Cartman Murray are both buried in the Pioneer Cemetery in Murray Corner.  Mary Louisa immigrated to the United States about 1879.
   The 1861 and 1871 census's of Canada have her family living in Botsford (although the 1861 census has her last name spelled as Murry).  I then have located her in the 1880 U.S. Federal Census in San Diego California living with her older sister (Melissa) and older brother (David).  She then married Walter Eugene Williams.
   I have already done the web search on your website and on the New Brunswick website.  Can you help me locate a birth record for Mary Louisa please?

Q5508-DURAND: I am researching the 18th century American artist, John Durand. 
   In 1768, Durand travelled to New Haven, CT, and spent the summer there in the home of Captain Abiathar Camp, Sr. He advertised in newspapers that, while there, he was accepting commissions to paint portraits. At least 2 of them survived John and Mary Lothrop and are in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
   Under the assumption that Durand also painted portraits of his hosts (or landlords), I am looking for paintings of the Camp family. They were loyalists, and after our Revolution, moved to Queens County in New Brunswick. 
    I am writing to ask if you have ever seen any portraits similar in style to the Lothrops. The paintings should be 25 by 30 inches and signed on the backs of the canvas.

Q5510-EXELL: I am looking for the passage to Canada from England of Walter Exell. He married Eliza Thomas on June 11th 1894. It says on this certificate he is 29 years old.
   I have found a Walter Exell, born in Dursley U.K. In 1867, mothers name Ann (which ties in with the marriage certificate in Canada) and also a passage to Canada on 13th March 1890 with the correct age of the Walter Exell born in Dursley U.K. However, the age is about 3 years out to the Walter Exell that marries Eliza Thomas in 1894.      
   Also, when Walter and Eliza have children, their son (my great grand dad) Walter Harry/Harry Walter spells his surname Axtell on any documents I've found and that's how the name continues to be used by our family. Would they have done that, just changed the spelling of their name?
   My grand dad Walter James Axtell returned to Canada to visit his Sister Mary Thompkins in 1980 in Saint John, New Brunswick. He hadn't been back home to Canada for 30+ years since he left for war. He settled in England after the war. When he returned in that visit to Saint John the local paper ran a story on him and his sister being reunited. I cannot find a trace of that but I'd really love to and also get the photo in the article. Can you offer me any advice that might help my search for it please?

Q5489-HARRISON: I've been trying to locate birth records for my Great Grandfather Francis Harrison to no avail!  He was supposedly born in St. John NB 1871/72 to Mary London.  He later immigrated to Boston, married and died here in 1922.  The only record I can find him on is and not totally sure it's him but the 1881 NB Census show's a Frank Harrison aged 10 as a boarder living with Catharine London aged 48, Sarah London 28 and Alice London aged 18.  I at first thought he may have been a British Home Child but as i've found out that is not the case.  Would you have any suggestions of where to search for him?

Q5490-JAMIESON: I've been searching for over 20 years for a picture of my great-grandmother (Clara Elizabeth "Bessie" Jamieson) She gave my grandmother up at birth in Saint John, NB in 1917.
(The father was Dr. Hugh Alan Farris, from White's Cove, NB.) Bessie was born in Dalhousie to James Jamieson and Matilda McLean. She became a nurse, graduating from a nursing school in Saint John.
She married a pharmacist, Walter Gordon Belyea in 1920 and had a son, Ralph soon afterwards.  (She may have started going by Clara at this point.) Contact has been made with the Belyea family over the years, only to continually be turned away.  Even with a birth certificate they refused to admit my grandmother's relationship to them. (My grandmother passed away in 1999.)

Q5491-JOHNSTON: I'm 72 years old and have only recently discovered that I was adopted, a very long story. After exhaustive research I have learnt that my great, great grandfather was a Robert James Johnston, of New Brunswick Canada. According to official records he emigrated to Melbourne Australia in 1880, the records show no actual date or vessel name. They do show a James Diamond as the Nominee, not sure what that means. Records show he married a Martha Hughes of Chiltern England. I would be most grateful if you could provide any further detail as to this person. I would also be interested in knowing of current direct family members, subject of course to your privacy laws.

Q5492-KELLY: My Great Grandfather, Walter Michael Kelly, immigrated to North America in the mid-1800's.  Earliest reference to him is in the Kent County Census of 1861 in which he is shown as a resident of Weldford (Richibucto area).
1) One of his daughters lists "Morilac River, NB" as her birthplace on her Bangor, ME wedding certificate.  Does anyone know where her birthplace is located or its modern name?  Folks in Richibucto I've spoken with do not recognize the location name.  We were in Richibucto less than 10 years ago and found several Walter Kelly references in church records which have been very helpful.
2) Was it common for Irish immigrants to sail directly to Richibucto?  That is, might Walter have sailed to St John's for example and then made his way to Richibucto overland or along the coast?  Is there any best place to find ship passenger manifests?

Q5493-LE BOUTHILLIER: My mother was a Le Bouthillier from Gaspé. Her origins are apparently linked to Joseph Le Bouthillier from Caraquet (1715-1761). It was easy to figure out this link with Joseph Le Bouthillier since it is well documented. However, I am trying to go back to the europeen origins of Joseph Le Bouthillier and this is more difficult. Do you have any information or is there a site that I should visit to figure this out.

Q5496-MATRILINEAL: I have been doing some research on my family tree (matrilineal), in the hopes I may find some information regarding any Indigenous ancestors. This was something that was gently discussed in the generations before me, but no one really has an answer for me who is still alive. My family names include Nevers, Belyea, Hayward, Rideout, Wasson, and Barton, (etc.), and they mostly resided in Sunbury, Kings, and Carlton counties. 
My question is if there were interracial marriages happening, how would they have been documented? Where do I look for more information? Was interracial marriage between the Maliseet and Europeans common? Is there someone who may know more I could reach out to?

Q5498-MCKENNEY: I recently came across my grandfathers immigration records, and would like to know if you have any pictures or information on the family he worked for when he came to Canada. My grandfather was William McKenney. The juvenille record for Immigration Canada lists his work/ home as the Stephenson farm in Maugerville , assigned there as part of   Cossar agency.   He arrived in Canada from Scotland in January 1927. on the Transylvania.  I am unaware of how he eventually ended up in Hamilton Ontario, where he married my grandmother in 1932. He lived in the Hamilton area for most of his life.  My grandfather was orphaned just before his first birthday. He had three sisters and a brother. His brother went to a work home, his sisters went to Quarriers,and he was placed with an aunt.  He found out when emigrating that his name was McKenney, and that he was orphaned when obtaining his birth certificate.

Q5500-SMITH: I am attempting to determine if George Henry SMITH is the son of Henry SMITH.  I have the following information that I believe is accurate:  Henry SMITH was born in Scotland and lived in the Shetland Islands before arriving in Canada prior to `1881 where he lived in Lancaster, Saint John, New Brunswick.  The census record of 1881 is partially missing and a more specific location cannot be determined. He had a son George SMITH. George Henry Smith of Saint John, N.B. worked in Westmoreland County where he became entangled in the equipment of the mill where he worked and was killed instantly on February 14, 1887.  His remains were shipped back to Saint John where his funeral took place at the home of his late father, Henry SMITH at Pleasant Point, Saint John, New Brunswick.  He was my great grandfather.My search suggests that Pleasant Point was adjoining or part of Lancaster prior to it becoming West Saint John.I would very much like to establish a family relationship between these SMITHS.  Can a connection be established between Lancaster and Pleasant Point that increases the likelihood of the residence being one and the same for both men?

Q5470-DONOVAN: I’m doing the family tree of James DONOVAN, born on October 7 or 14, 1847 in Ireland, son of Michael DONOVAN and Elle BUTLER.  He married Mary Margaret McCormack on September 13, 1882 at Renous Bridge, NB. I think he died on March 14th, 1923 at St-Bridget Parish, Renous Bridge, NB. The couple had 10 children.
    One of them is Melvin DONOVAN, born on September 26, 1898, at Renous River, NB. He seemed to be married to Ethyl McNeil, daughter of Robert McNeil and Frances Hackett. The problem is that I can’t find their Marriage registration. The couple seemed to have 6 children. Again, I have problems finding their Birth registration. I was able to identify the children by their Marriage registration.
    I’m a member of Ancestry.ca and I searched of the National Archives of New Brunswick, but no trace of Melvin DONOVAN. Even on your site when I look up the DONOVAN under the section of Family surnames, there is no Melvin DONOVAN. I don’t understand, because each Marriage registration of every children, the place of birth for each of the children is Renous, Nortumberland.
    I’m just wandering why I cannot find anything for this generation. As the church burn and the registration book has been lost.

Q5471-ENGLISH: I have a fair amount of information about my great grandfather, James English, when he lived in San Francisco, California from approximately 1880 to his death in 1912 at age 68.
   His death certificate says he was born in St. Johns New Brunswick. I know he had a sister named Margaret who was born in 1837 who was also born in St. Johns.
   He was married in1875 to Jennie McNamee who was also from Canada.
   I am not sure how they traveled to San Francisco or any information about their lives before arriving here in California.
   I am looking for direction or information on his early history, their marriage date and location, etc.

Q5473-FERGUSON: I am seeking information on the Ferguson Family. I am specifically interested in Jennie Ferguson (my 2nd g-grandmother) born in the area near Weldford or Richibucto, Kent, NB likely about 1858, records place her birth between 1856 and 1864.
     Jennie's marriage record in 1882 to William John Haines (born Richibucto, son of John Haines and Alice Edith Childs) in Chelsea, Massachusetts, names her parents as Elizabeth and John William Ferguson
Birth: 1785 in Dumfries-shire, Scotland
Baptism: 21 Aug 1786 in Applegarth, Dumfries-shire, Scotland
Death: 19 Apr 1844 in Galloway, Kent County, New Brunswick
Married: Elizabeth "Betsy" Potts (may have first married a Graham as a John Graham is listed as her child in a census). 
Marriage: Dec 1830 in Chatham, Northumberland, New Brunswick.
      I believe Jennie was born out of wedlock. Elizabeth Ferguson is named in her father's will and is likely Jennie's mother.   Elizabeth later married James Childs, son of Joseph Childs and Jannet Dunn (who are also the grandparents of Jennie's husband John William Haines).  Elizabeth and James had sons James and William.  Elizabeth died in 1913; James remarried Elizabeth Mitchell and had four children: Janet Bertha, William, Sarah Jean and Hattie.
      Jennie named her first son John Galatis Haines (there is no name Galatis in the Haines line), thus I believe it could be name on her side of the family.  All records list Jennie's maiden name as Ferguson, except one daughter's death certificate names her as Jennie Garfield (maybe a clue or maybe an error by the informant). 
       I am hoping to find a primary source that names Jennie's parents. Anything on the Ferguson, Potts, Childs or Graham family would be appreciated.

Q5474-JAMIESON: I've been searching for over 20 years for a picture of my great-grandmother Clara Elizabeth “Bessie” Jamieson. She gave my grandmother up at birth in Saint John, NB in 1917.
(The father was Dr. Hugh Alan Farris, from White's Cove, NB.)
Bessie was born in Dalhousie to James Jamieson and Matilda McLean. She became a nurse, graduating from a nursing school in Saint John. She married a pharmacist, Walter Gordon Belyea in 1920 and had a son, Ralph soon afterwards.  (She may have started going by Clara at this point.) Contact has been made with the Belyea family over the years, only to continually be turned away.  Even with a birth certificate they refused to admit my grandmother's relationship to them.  (My grandmother passed away in 1999.)

I am told our family name was once Roy and changed to King, my ancestors may have tried to hide the fact of being native.

Q5476-LAVOIE:  I am trying to search my paternal side. I had chatted with my Bio mom and she said she thinks the guy she dated was Claude Lavoie, Claude could very well be Jean-Claude as most french names are like that.His family came from New Brunswick. He was said to be french. Though she said she can’t be sure. I would like to be able to post some questions under the name Lavoie for those interested in family tree’s to be able to consider this. I have tested with family tree DNA, Ancestry and 23&Me. though this is proving to be a challenge it is said that none of my paternal relations have tested DNA with those companies or they would have come up! I get 2nd to distant cousins so far with many french names. My mother was born in 1940 or 1941 Nova Scotia.

Q5477-MASKELL: I am searching for the parents of my 2x great-grandfather, Roland Maskell, who was born in Kent, Carlton County, New Brunswick in 1856.In 2 census documents, he lists that his father was born in Scotland. He also identifies his "race or tribe" as "Scotch" and had a brother named Frederick. The only individual of approximately the right age to be their father with that surname is a Joshua Maskill, but he and his father were both born in New Brunswick. I am a member of ancestry.com and have exhausted every database that I have been able to find. Is there anyone who can shed any light on this?

Q5480-PASCHAL:  I am looking for information about Bridget Paschal  (Paskel) - born about 1801 - probably in Ireland. She married John Walsh Oct 21 1820 at Fredericton, NB. They had a son, John Walsh, baptized Sep 14 1828 at Fredericton.  Both the marriage and the baptism were in the Catholic Church.    The 1851 census for Blackville, Northumberland, NB shows John and Bridget Walsh, and 3 children, the eldest being John (b. abt 1829) and shows that they arrived in the colony in 1818.  I believe there were other Paschal families in the area of Petersville and also in Saint John. I am trying to find out if she is related to any other Paschals in New Brunswick or where she came from in Ireland.

Two of the soldiers from the Calgary Highland Regiment are from the New Brunswick area. They were killed during the crossing of the Albert Canal near the locks at Wijnegem, only a short distance from here. They were initially buried at Wommelgem, Belgium and are now buried at Bergen-Op-Zoom Canadian Cemetery, the Netherlands. The people of Wommelgem flowered their graves and there was a short ceremony on November 11, 1944.
     I was wondering if your society can help me a little further in my research, I am especially interested in a picture of the soldiers and some small background information about them.

Q5484-CUSTOMS PAPERS: Col. Jos. Wanton Jr. was the largest and most powerful Loyalist merchant in Rhode Island and the son of Joseph Wanton Sr., 36th Colonial Governor of Rhode Island.  However, no trace has been found of his logs, records or correspondence. It is possible that his brother William, who was for many years the Collector of Customs in Saint John, may have kept them after Joseph Jr. died in 1782, as they were in business together.  Does anybody know if such papers exist and where they might be found?

Q5485-PHOTOS: Came across a number of photos from what appears to be around 1947 to 1950. The images include the picture of a grocery store "D.A. Alward Groceries and Meats", Two cemetery plots one being Alward and the other McPhee. One image has the picture of an older gent, perhaps Abner Alward next to the gravestone of his wife Annie. The correlation is Annie was sister to a Georgia McPhee who was married to a John Foster of Lancaster, Massachusetts. John had a son John (Jr) that was good friends with my Dad (Innes Donald Campbell) who went on frequent hunting trips to Moncton in the mid to late 40's. My grandmother's maiden name was Foster making them all related in one way or another. The hunting trips included John Foster and his first cousins Howard and Harold Foster and my Dad Innes Donald Campbell Jr. Any threads of information would be appreciated. I could send the photos to you if interested with the detail I have at this time.

Q5447 -COFLIN: I am trying to locate information about my great-grandfather Samuel W. Coflin 1843-1905, born in St. John, New Brunswick. He was prominent in the Cincinnati area from 1866 until his death. He was president of Covington, KY city council and operated a boatyard involved in building several well known riverboats.  All information I have prior to that period comes from the articles listed below.  Oral history says he abandoned an apprenticeship in Canada with 3 years to go.  I have searched all records I can find online & found nothing.  Every form I have found which should have parents names are blank.  He did not exist untill he married in 1866.  I suspect he changed his name, maybe birth date.

Q5450- FRITCH: George Fritch's wife Mary has always eluded a surname even though there has been lots of digging. Recently I found a suggestion that that surname might be Gibson. Since they were married in 1797, it is slightly before any major record-keeping.
They were loyalists- Since Mary was born May 26, 1780, she was probably a small child when the fleet came up to Parrtown. George came with his father John as a teenager in the spring fleet.
I have found a John Gibson-farmer- of Clover Hill that might fit as her father. 
The Fritches had land grants in the Norton, Kings area.
Any information you might add is greatly appreciated.

Q5454 -LINGLEY: I am searching for the family of Sara Jane Lingley (1816-1859). She is my wife's 2d great grandmother, married to George Drew of Machias, Maine, USA. Family lore has it she was born in England and arrived with her family in New Brunswick when a young girl. Her father, John, reputedly was a head gardener for King George III and, again reputedly, immigrated to New Brunswick after receiving a 1,000 acres land grant on the Saint John River from the king. According to Sara Jane Lingley's son's memoirs, he died in New Brunswick at the ripe age of 83. Also according to these memoirs, John Lingley had 3 sons all of whom served in the Royal Navy.

Q5463 -QUINN: I live in Quincy, Massachusetts and am researching my family tree. I have a great grandfather who was supposedly married in New Brunswick.
Legend has him arriving in New Brunswick from Ireland, marrying and having 3 children in NB before sailing in a small boat to the Magdalene Islands.
I have documented everything in the Islands (more children etc.) and I also have exact birth dates for the NB children from records up there. (1845, 1847, 1849)
There is no mention of where in NB.  He supposedly married Hanna Grant.  I am trying to find the marriage record to see if it tells me where in Ireland he came from.
And maybe it will show his parents names.
I have not been able to find his arrival in NB. I do have a possibility of a John Quinn (13) arriving in 1833 (Microfilm F9798). Based on the 1861 Quebec census, a John Quinn was 39 yrs. which would have a birth year of 1822. My grandmother, Katherine Caroline Quinn, was born in 1860 in the Islands.

Q5467- PHOTO STUDIO: I am trying to date a photo to determine who the people are.  The photo frame is from Macdonald & Palmer, Sussex, N.B. I googled them but nothing came up.  Are you able to provide me with any information on them?
What years they were in business during?
I had family living in Plum wee sweep, N.B. for a period of time during the 1940's, returning to Ontario in the late 1940's but the photo appears to have been from a time period earlier than that. Thank you,

Answer to Query Q5426 FILLMORE:
I read in the most recent edition (Fall 2016) of the New Brunswick Genealogical Society's "GENERATIONS' your inquiry about the FILLMORE name.  I am the great-great-great-granddaughter of Michael Butler and Sarah Fillmore.  According to information recorded by my father, Frederick Butler, Michael and a brother left Tipperary, Ireland approximately 1820-22.  Apparently the brother came as far as Newfoundland while Michael lived first at Fort Lawrence and later at Sackville, NB.  He then got a grant of land at Malden on the Immigrant Road (Westmoreland county).  He married Mary Sarah Fillmore approximately 1822.  My father told me that according to family "lore" Sarah was "Holland Dutch" and came from the Mohawk Valley in New York State.  Whether this is fact or fiction, I don't know.
I had no information on Sarah's ancesters until I read the info in your query; however, your query provided me with the names of Michael Butler's parents, which we did not have - we are not even certain if he actually came from Tipperary.  I wonder if you have other information on Michael's ancestors, and where they lived in Ireland. I have a Descendency Chart on Michael Butler's family and if you would like to have it, I will email it to you.

The following queries (Q5419 to Q5443) were posted to this website on 31 October 2016.
 
Q5419- BELDING: I am trying to finding birth, baptism or marriage information for my great grandmother Mabel Ann BELDING.  She was born October 14, 1867 in St. John.  I believe her parents may have been William Henry BELDING and Eliza Ann MURRAY who lived in the Queens Ward in 1871. According to the 1871 and 1881 Canada Census they had two daughters Fannie M. and Nella M.  I have researched both of these girls and have ruled them out as my great grandmother.
     Mabel married my great grandfather William John RAWLINSON around 1885..  Mabel was confined to a wheel chair in adulthood.  Maybe this could be a clue?

Q5420 - BLACK: Hello:  I have been doing some family research on an ancestor whom I was told was buried in the cemetery which is located very close to the Dorchester Penitentary.  I have been unable to find proof of his burial  in Dorchester and wondered if you would be able to confirm where he is buried or if you could direct me elsewhere to find this out.  His name was William Black and he was born in Paisley, Scotland in 1727 and emigrated to Nova Scotia in 1775 with his family.   Later in life he purchased a large estate in Dorchester where he eventually died  in 1820.  Any information you can give me about his burial would be very much appreciated and I will look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you.

Q5423- CALLAGHAN: I have been doing research on my grandmother's line of descent.  She was a Callaghan by birth.  I have recently been in touch with Mr. Don Kellaway whose wife descends from the same Callaghan line.  He told me he found information from your Historical Society that a John Callaghan born 1812 in Cork, Ireland (my great great grandfather) and his wife Mary Anne Kieff Callaghan and their son Jeremiah Callaghan immigrated to St. John's in New Brunswick around 1835.  Around 1837, they moved to Belleville where the rest of their children were born including my great grandfather Michael Callaghan.
      I have been unsuccessful in finding this immigration information and would appreciate any assistance you could give me on how I would be able to obtain these records on line.

Q5424-  DOUCET: Christina  Doucet was born in Tracadie, NB in about 1824.  The birth year is calculated from her death certificate, which states her age as 66 at the time of her death in May 1890 - in Coldbrook, St John Co, NB.  I also found the register in which her death is recorded. Her obituary identifies her as the widow of Archie Taylor. No one in the family has any further information about Christina. None of the documentation found includes any information whatsoever about her parents names, siblings or relations. 
     There was some question as to which Tracadie (NB, NS, or PEI) was Christina's birthplace.  Her death certificate states NB, but her son's states NS.  I have confirmed that it was not NS.  
     I also checked your site for Christina Doucet, but there's no Christina listed.  One Doucet researcher suggested I search for Scholastique Doucet as Scholastique is the equivalent of Christina.  I have never heard of this, but did search for a Scholastique with no success.  I checked all the Maries for a Marie Christine, etc.
   Did any of the Doucets on the list come from Tracadie?
   I am contacting you in hopes of your providing information or suggestions/advice on how to proceed with my research.

Q5426- FILLMORE: I am the Arizona state Historian for the Mayflower Society and am helping an applicant prove his link to pilgrim Francis Cooke through some MA planter families in Westmorland Co. He has a copy of "Arrivals 99" by the St. John Branch of the NBGS, rev. 2000. Page 283 does show a woman we believe to be Gen. 6 descendant Tabitha French marrying Jonathan Ward, then having a daughter Hannah who married Reuben Fillmore, but with no places and dates for Tabitha & Hannah. Our bigger problem is that someone published a history of the Fillmore family in 1984 ("So Soon Forgotten: Three Thousand Fillmores) and it does pick up the trail with Reuben and his wife Hannah, but calls her the _granddaughter_ of Jonathan Ward (via his first wife). Are there any members who specialize in the Wards, Fillmores, and/or Butlers (the next generation being Mary Sarah Fillmore, who married Michael Butler of Ireland, son of John Butler and Mary Tobin) and are actively researching original records in Westmorland County?

Q5427- HANFORD: I'm trying to find the birthplace of my grandmother's paternal progenitor Henry James Hanford born circa 1821. Henry James Hanford was the son of Captain Isaac Charles Hanford and Margaret Hanford (Pye).
      Captain Isaac Charles Hanford is said to have died at sea in August 1822. His mother Margaret Hanford née Pye died at Carlton-house, St. John, New Brunswick on January 1st 1839 or 1840, according to an article in the Liverpool Mercury, 3 April 1840:
      I'm not exactly sure whether "On the 1st of January last" means i.e. 1839 or 1840.
    On his Death Notice, Henry James Hanford listed his place of birth as "America". Presumably he meant British North America.
      I would love to be able to say, with certainty, that Henry James Hanford was born in St. John, New Brunswick.
     I'm also interested in a maritime vessel the "John Campbell" as this was a vessel I know Henry James Hanford had a connection with.

Q5433- MCCAFFREY: I am following a "cell" of Jas/James McCaffrey and his two sons John and William James McCaffrey.  I believe that Jas/James McCaffrey was married to Catherine Mullaly on August 7, 1867 witnessed by Mary Ann McCaffrey.  of Jas/James, John was the first born, with William James as the second and then two daughters--  Florence and Katherine. 
      William James McCaffrey was born in 1870, and I am trying to find out if I am accurate with his parents being Jas and Catherine Mullaly.  The census from 1891 demonstrates this, however I want to get more information if it is available.  I believe I found the line of his brother John (son John Nairn McCaffrey), and his death record indicates his father was James McCaffrey and Kathy Mullaly. 
      I found a "cell" also  in the JJ Cooke Ships Passengers from Londonderry to St. John in 1849.  This cell has John McCaffrey, his wife and thier sons James, Denis, John, Mary Anne, and Margaret.  As Jas/James McCaffrey on this list is 8 years old, his date does match the James McCaffrey born in 1841, father of William .  Also, the Mary Anne McCaffrey from this manifest may be the same sister that was witness to James' wedding to Catherine Mulllaly in 1867.
    What I am trying to connect, is the line of Jas/James McCaffrey and his son WIlliam James McCaffrey with a birth record from 1870.  Also, I would like to know if there is anyplace to check to see if John McCaffrey in 1849 manifest could be the same family that will settle here, as his children Mary Anne and James appear in the later records (assuming it is not the other McCaffrey lines).

Q5435- MCPHEE: I'm searching for information on Donald Arthur McPhee (or MacPhee) who married an Elizabeth Dowcet (I've tried variations of Doucet / Doucette , etc).
    He was born abt. 1840. The records and census forms I have seen list various birth places for him, NS, NB, and PEI have all been recorded at various times. I believe he passed between 1901 and 1911 as he appears on census data in 1901, but not 1911.Elizabeth was born in, I believe, 1854 in Albert county New Brunswick. I believe she passed in 1918 in Nova Scotia.
    They spent a good chunk of their lives, and had their children in Nova Scotia (Springhill/Amherst area)
    I am looking for the exact birth place for them both, as well as their parents names. I'm really hoping to find a copy of their marriage record, which should list their parents names and places of birth.

Q5437- QUINN: I am curious to learn more about my father's family heritage dating back to the 1780's when I believe the Ellegood family (grandmother) arrived in Canada from Virginia and early 1800's when the Quinn family (Francis) arrives at Bocabec, Canada.  
     My father is Reg Quinn who was born in 1921, his father was Harry who was born in 1889, and his father was Francis II who I believe as born in 1846.  All were born in NB.  
     My grandmother was Amelia Elllegood born in 1890 according to burial stone in Lowell, MA.  
    Please advise best way to research both Quinn and Ellegood family history.  I am connecting with some of the Quinn side (9 siblings in the 1st and 2nd generations so various cousins to find.  I'm looking for places they lived, what they may have done, interesting facts, cemeteries, etc.

Q5439- SHEARER: My name is Ray Allen. I am a member of the Cairns Family History Society, North Queensland, Australia. .I am trying, unsuccessfully, to find a location shown on the 1864 Street Directory for your area The road was called Shore Road n [near?] Simonds. This may have been an actual named road during that period, or a generic name for the coastal road?
    Also, could someone please give me some guidance on where I might be able to locate birth records for the period c1860 toc1866 for the Saint John area; if they exist? I cannot find any records showing a particular religion; so I don’t know what church records to pursue.
    The person shown in the directory, Andrew Shearer, left Pennsylvania about 1860 with his wife, Isabella, and new born child Elizabeth.
    The death records for three other children –William and Thomas [possibly twins] and Charles Shearer - state that they were born in Saint John. I believe the family returned to Philadelphia around c1867.
     If this family travelled by land, what do you think would have been the likely route followed during this period?If they travelled by sea, can you suggest any shipping records for Philadelphia/New York to Saint John?

Q5440- STORM: Researching a John Storm, who was a shipbuilder in Saint John from 1847-58.  I do not have very much on this Storm family, but it is written that a Samuel Storm came to Saint John around 1783. He was said to have been born in New York in 1770 and his family were Loyalists.
    Samuel Storm was born in New York in 1770. He married a Frances Hilyard in Saint John and died in Saint John on 15th December 1850. Samuel was a blacksmith and may have carried on a merchant business with a brother and a person named Poole, trading to the West Indies?
    John Storm was born in 1816. In 1838 he was a caulker and in 1847 he built his first ship, the SEA at Straight Shore, Portland, Saint John, NB. He died 17th April 1858 and is buried in Fernhill Cemetery, Saint John."
    I have looked on the NB Vital Statistics sit and cannot find the birth of John Storm or the deaths of either Samuel or John Storm.  Can anyone help re John and Samuel Storm?

Q5441- TAYLOR: Family stories state the Taylor family's origin lies in the Black Hills of Scotland, where they belonged to the Cameron clan.  The Taylors then lived in Ireland for some unknown period of time.  The date of the family's emigration from Ireland to Canada is unknown. However, Archie and Christina had a son circa 1848, so that is the latest date the Taylors emigrated to Canada. I have not found any info about Archie's death.  I do not know where Archie was born, where the family lived, nor when and where Archie died.
      When searching your site for Archie, it pointed to a Donald Taylor.  When I searched for William Taylor, it also pointed to - among others - a Donald Taylor.  While I have never heard of a Donald Taylor in the family, Donald is a common name within the past two generations of our Taylor family, often as a middle name. William is also a common name in the family.  My father was William Donald.  Would it be possible to obtain the information you have on file for Donald Taylor and family?  (Past two generations are William and Mary's children and grandchildren.  My grandfather was one of their children and my father one of their grandchildren.)
      Archie and Christina's son William was born circa 1848 (calculated from death cert.) and died in Coldbrook, St John Co., NB, in 1893.  William was a farmer, but did not own land. William married Mary Kelly in June 1878 at Immaculate Conception Church, St John Co.  Both William and Mary were from Portland.  William and Mary had several children before William died.
      I don't know if Archie and Christina had any children other than William.  I have found references to an Adele Taylor as godmother to one of William's children, but I haven't been able to locate an Adele Taylor either - or at least one I can connect back to this family.  
      William died of consumption, from which he suffered for over a year before his death.  William died 3 years after his mother's death.  With both his parents dead and no siblings, there was little support for Mary Kelly Taylor during William's illness and after his death.  Mary placed some of children in the orphanage prior to their father's death. They remained in the orphanage until Mary could take care of them.

Q5392 - BARTER: I'm researching my two-times great grandfather, Thomas F. (or G.) Barter. Thomas Barter says in US Census records that he was born in Saint John, NB, on March 19, 1843.He also indicates in US Census records that he came to the US in 1848. He may have lived in New York state, and did live in Louisiana and Mississippi, where he married Christian McMillan (Reynolds?), and they had two sons - Duncan (1879) and Daniel (1882 - my great grandfather.) Thomas died in Mississippi on March 17, 1915.

Q5394 - BOWEN: I am looking for any information on a James BOWEN (thought to be born in Vermont around 1800) and Sarah UHLMAN (thought to be born in NB around the same time). They may have had ten children between 1823 and 1844, in St. John, NB. We had solid evidence of three of these children: John Thomas BOWEN (b. 23 Nov 1825, St John, NB), William BOWEN (b. 26 Nov 1837, St John, NB) and Charles Frederick BOWEN (b. about 1839, St. John, N.B.). These three sons all were in the Boston area by 1850.

Q5395 - BRENNAN: Herbert John Brennan was born on 4 February 1876 in Blackville. His social security application listed his father as John Brennan. So, I'm assuming that Herbert was born out of wedlock. Upon further review of Catherine's life, it appears that she married a James Carroll in 1877, while John married an Annie Agnes Murdock in 1887.
 
When I was looking through census records, it appears that Herbert lived with his father in Blackville, as no matches were associated with Catherine. Herbert's surnames in the census records are never "Brennan," however, but always a different name. For Herbert's first marriage, he didn't list his parents' names.
 
Are there any custody papers associated with the guardianship of Herbert, and is there an obituary for John Brennan, who died in Blackville on 28 February 1922. I found his death certificate, but maybe an obituary might be able to tie in him with Herbert.

Q5396 - BRUCE: My name is Cheryl Clarke and I live in Lancashire, England. I am helping a friend to research his family tree and we are trying to trace relatives who travelled to NB in the early 1950's. We know some of the family moved back to the UK but can't find some of the siblings so we are wondering if they stayed in Canada.
 
Please could you advise where I may find marriage / birth or death records for 1950 onwards? I have been searching the internet but can't seem to find anything for this time frame.
 
The family we are looking for is the Bruce family and they moved to Canada from Barrow-InFurness, England. There were 4 children (Doris Edwina, John Geoffrey, Edward and Anne Y) and their mother Emily. Emily and John Geoffrey both died in the UK but we are searching for the other siblings and for Doris Edwina in particular.

Q5397 - COCHRAN: We have recently learnt through family documents that our 3 x great grandfather Denis Cochran came to Miramichi in the 1820's. He was married to Isabella and they had two or three children, who may have been born in Miramichi. Isabella went back to Ireland, we think after the fire and then returned a year later. On the return journey it is rumoured that she may have died.
 
Denis we believed applied for a land grant of 200 acres but after the loss of his wife he left and came to New Zealand (circ 1830).
 
Where would you suggest we try and find any information of Denis and Isabella's time in NB?

Q5399 - GIBSON: I am looking for information on John Gibson, b. 1850 in NB. He married Catherine Cain, daughter of Dennis and Catherine Cain, in 1879.

Q5400 - HAYES: I am trying to find out information about my maternal great-grandfather, Thomas Hayes. I know little of him, and as he died while my grandmother was still an infant there is no oral history. My grandmother was born in 1889 in Winn, ME and her mother, who had been widowed, remarried there in 1892. What I know of him comes from my grandmother's marriage's license and the U.S. 1870 census. He was 18 in 1870 and lived in Old Town, ME. He was born in Saint John, NB in 1852. He died circa 1890. I don't know if he kept in touch with relatives in NB, although a cousin told me that one of his sons used to visit there.

Q5417 - WILCOX: My great grandfather was Charles Verner Wilcox, who began Wilcox´s clothing store, which is now the Mercantile Building at the corner of Prince William and King Street, Saint John, NB. He was a Sea Captain at an early age, and I was told by my Grandmother, Mary Kathleen Wilcox, that there was five previous generations of sea captains.
 
Charles Verner Wilcox was born in Nova Scotia, and his mother was Sarah Peach.
 
There is confusion on Charles Verner Wilcox´s wife - Margaret Connelly and Margaret O´ Neil. I am not sure if one died, and he married again. Just not able to find enough records.
 
Another interesting part of my history is my grandmother; Mary Kathleen Wilkins was married to someone, and then had it annulled. She had a son; Charles Donald Wilcox (my father), and remarried to John Burton Wilkins, which shows as a record, I believe in 1947. I cannot find who she was previously married to.
 
On my mother´s side - Violet Mae Shaw, and her father was Harold Shaw, and mother was Myrtle Melvin. Apparently George Bernard Shaw (the poet) is related, and at one time was in contact with Harold.

Q5347 - BROWN: Looking for information on the parents of Abraham Brown who arrived with his family in Maugerville NB in 1787 (aged 17 according to a Land Petition.)
Abraham married Ruth Estey (d/o Zebulon Estey) in 1793. Rev. Clarke performed the ceremony in Maugerville (Clarke's records were lost in a fire.) His stone in the Andover/Perth cemetery says he was b. 1770 and d. 1853.
His son was named Jonathan - perhaps he was named after Abraham's father? The Estey and Brown families lived in Exeter Co. in the Massachusetts Bay colony and also Westchester NY which had to be evacuated when the Revolutionary War ended.
The N.B. Land Petition records include a land petition for Zebulon Estey and Abraham Brown. This Abraham Brown could be Abraham's father but we could not find if he was granted any land for his service.

Q5376 - MURPHY/QUIGLEY: Looking for information on John Murphy (ca 1796 - 1857) & Mary Quigley ( - 1896) of North West Branch, Miramichi, and their parents/families. In their marriage record, Mary was of Newcastle Parish. In a published letter from a granddaughter of John and Mary, Mary tells her granddaughter that at first she was shocked by age of the man her brothers had brought her over from Ireland to marry. In another separate statement it mentions the Murphy brothers came over in company with some Quigley brothers. The Murphy's arrived c1817. In W. D. Hamilton in his book, Old North Esk., the earliest Quigley was named Richard and already married to Mary McInnis. Any information is appreciated.

Q5378 - NICHOLAS DENYS (village)/SIROIS: I’m trying to gather information about a small town in New Brunswick named Nicholas Denys. It is in the Beresford area, I believe. During the 60’s, there was a priest named Yvon Sirois I believe. He worked intimately with the community, helping it through a difficult time, when the government was trying to eradicate the area.
If anyone in NBGS has information about this time, this place, or the people involved, I would be very grateful. If there are any suggestions as to where I should search, I will receive them gladly. Holly Deveaux, Deveaux Babin Productions, 25 The Esplanade-1405, Toronto, Ontario, Canada  M5E 1W5
 
Q5379 - NICHOLLS/FOSTER: My grandmother, Ada Nicholls, born in Aston, Warwickshire. England, came to Gaspe with my grandfather Jeremy Sinnett, at end of the First World War.
She had a brother, Albert Alfred Nicholls (aged 26), who arrived in Halifax in 1924 on the SS Minnedosa, with his wife Elsie Foster & daughter Beatrice Ada Nicholls (aged 2). Albert Nichol died in a car accident, Oct. 12,1932. He is buried in McLeods Siding Cemetery.
I am looking for what happened to his wife & daughter after his death. I believe they lived in Campbellton.
The information that I have on his arrival, death & place of death was received from PANB; including a newspaper clipping from The Dalhousie News (dated Oct 19, 1932) about his accident.

Q5382 - PERKINS: Looking for the parents of John Buckley Perkins who settled amongst the (Azariah and sons) Perkins farms in Springfield Parish, Kings, NB. John was born abt 1787 and died Nov. 1 1876, buried at the Lyon Cemetery, Gagetown, Queens, NB. He married Sarah Lyon in 1810. I believe he is the brother of Sarah Ann Perkins who married Alexander Clark in 1814 in Kingston, NB. But neither John nor Sarah Perkins appear to have any records showing their parents names. I thought maybe Azariah Perkins (loyalist), but neither John nor Sarah are mentioned in his will (1825) while the rest of his children are. I looked at some of the Buckley family but don't see a connection, at least not yet. I've heard claims of a possible DNA connection to Isaac Perkins (loyalist) but even so, hard documentation is still missing to back it.

Q5383 - SANDERSON: Looking for local information on George Sanderson who immigrated to Canada between 1873-5 from Scotland. He married Elizabeth Matthews (from Nfld.) in Montreal. He was employed in several capacities with the Bank of Nova Scotia in NB (in Moncton, Saint John, and Woodstock) between 1880-1890 and it is any local information on himself and family which would be of great interest. Four children were born in NB during this period, Beatrice, Kathleen, Stanley and Bessie. Another daughter, Lilias was born in Montreal, previous to NB residence. During his residence in NB, George was very involved in breeding Skye Terriers. My research is based upon positioning George in the history of the foundation of purebred dogs in the region which is my area of focus.

Q5384 - SMITH: I am searching for the parents of Aaron Smith, born circa 1793 on Grand Manan when it was a US possession.
He married in Douglas Parish, York, NB, ca. 1829, Mary ___ (maiden name unknown), a woman of Welsh birth. It was actually probably Cardigan Settlement, as that is where he got a 300 acre land grant from the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick Land Co.
Looking for information on his parents names, his date of birth; his wife's full name and their marriage date. Also, if you have records showing where the Smith family came from, perhaps Massachusetts or Rhode Island, I'd be interested in that also.

Q5385 - SMITH: Looking for information on a Smith family of Miramichi or Fredericton. I don't know if these people were from the US and migrated to Canada after or during the American Revolution or how they got to New Brunswick.
Milford M. Smith was born 3 Sept. 1875 at Dorn Ridge, York, NB, the son of Benjamin and Jemima Smith. Milford and his wife, Temperance Morehouse, moved to Presque Isle, Maine shortly after their marriage on 21 March 1901 Temperance was from Douglas, in York.
Benjamin was the son of Aaron and Annie Maria Smith. I assume all of Dorn Ridge, but I do not know for sure. Aaron may have been born in Massachusetts or elsewhere in colonial America. Merrylyn Sawyer merrylyn.sawyer@gmail.com
 
Q5386 - STEWART/ABERNETHY: John Stewart, born in 1810 or 1811, married Margaret Abernethy on Aug. 25, 1835, in St. Mary's Parish, York County. Subsequent census records show John is 7 years older than Margaret. They moved to Hodgdon, Aroostook County, Maine around 1849. Looking for confirmation that Margaret Abernethy Stewart is the daughter of William V. Abernethy and Mary Young. Some records show this, but her name and birth date never show up in the list of the children. Looking for information on where her father, William Abernethy, 42nd Regiment soldier, was buried or when he died? He died in Taymouth, NB. Also would like to resolve another discrepancy about the Abernethy family, William and Mary married in 1810, but their first daughter's (Jane or Jennie Abernethy) birth date is always listed as 1807/1808?

Q5389 - WHEATON: I am in search of an ancestor James Wheaton, an UEL, that seems to have disappeared after he sold his 100 acre parcel of land that was granted to him in Prince William, York County NB, 1785, and sold in 1798. Death records reveal nothing in any province.
Could you help with how to research into these possibilities:
1) He may have returned to New York. Looking for a Ship's log/passenger list for that same year of 1798.
2) He may have been incarcerated/hospitalized and perished.

Q5390 - WHITE: I've been trying to research the father of one of my ancestors, Robert White, with little success. I have found a Robert White, came over on the Perseus in 1834, and lived in Fredericton, York, New Brunswick, Canada in 1861 with his wife, Sarah J, two boys, Charles and Robert, and one daughter, Charlotte. Robert is recorded as age 34 which doesn't really echo the passenger record on the Perseus. I have not been able to find any other records. 1861 census says Robert is a shoemaker. He may be the Robert in the 1902 death records for Kingston, at age 78. There are no other names tied in to assist me in confirming.
I would appreciate any assistance you can provide me. I have already been trying to utilize the http://archives.gnb.ca/ Irish databases.

Q5391 - WIDBUR: Looking for information on J. Harry Widbur's ancestry. My mother's name is Elaine Robinson, she is the middle child of Gordon Leslie Widbur (d.19 May 1981) and Thelma Grace Widbur (née Munson d.07 Dec 2007). Gordon's father was J. Harry Widbur. Harry's grandmother was Hannah Matilda Marsters of King's or Hants Co. NS. She had several children: Harry's mother (name not given), Agnes, Carrie, Cassie, Shubael Dimock Marsters (named for his gr-grand father), Ella, Harvey, Amy Ellise, Charles Munroe and William Osborne. Carrie married Alex Watson and lived in Boston; Agnes married Thomas McNeil. J. Harry thought that Noah Webb was his gr-gr-gr-grandfather. Mom would like to know who she is, as this written history of J. Harry's is not consistent with what she was told. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The following queries were posted to this website on 31 March 2016.
 
ALLEN: In 1861 Census, Westmoreland, Botsford.; lived my husbands ancesters (ALLEN [Benjamin 1835-1823] They had started maybe in the States then Botsford, down to Illiois and back to Botsford) George Allen was bn 1827-1912 marr 2x and had way too many children. But back to the question  on page 1 of Botsford census George is listed in middle above his wife Ellis (Alice), he is age 34, race "native". 
Also in family search when you check print out it lists Georg Allen as 46 bn abt 1815 Race-Native film #C-1006.
So my question is - Is native as it shows on the 1861 Census mean Native as in Race or Native as in living in botsford? Wouldn't "Indian" have been used back in 1861?
In my mil immediate family on the Allen side there were many children, half were white and the other half were definately Native in color.

BARTER: I'm researching my two-times great grandfather, Thomas F. (or G.) Barter. Thomas Barter says in US Census records that he was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, on March 19, 1843.He also indicates in US Census records that he came to the US in 1848.He may have lived in New York state, and did live in Louisiana and Mississippi, where he married Christian McMillan (Reynolds?), and they had two sons - Duncan (1879)  and Daniel (1882 - my great grandfather.) Thomas died in Mississippi on March 17, 1915.

BRENNAN: Herbert John Brennan was born on 4 February 1876 in Blackville. His social security application listed his father as John Brennan. So, I'm assuming that Herbert was born out of wedlock. Upon further review of Catherine's life, it appears that she married a James Carroll in 1877, while John married an Annie Agnes Murdock in 1887.
When I was looking through census records, it appears that Herbert lived with his father in Blackville, as no matches were associated with Catherine. Herbert's surnames in the census records are never "Brennan," however, but always a different name. For Herbert's first marriage, he didn't list his parents' names.
I think what I'd like to try and find are any custody papers associated with the guardianship of Herbert. and a obituary for John Brennan, who died in Blackville on 28 February 1922. I found his death certificate, but maybe an obituary might be able to tie in him with Herbert.

HAYES: I am trying to find out information about my maternal greatgrandfather, Thomas Hayes.  I know little of him, and as he died while my grandmother was still an infant there is no oral history.  My grandmother was born in 1889 in Winn, Maine and her mother, who had been widowed, remarried there in 1892.    What I know of him comes from my grandmother's marriage's license and the U.S. 1870 census.  He was 18 in 1870 and lived in Old Town, Maine.  He was born in Saint John, NB in 1852.  He died circa 1890.  I don't know if he kept in touch with relatives in New Brunswick, although a cousin told me that one of his sons used to visit there.

McLEAN/THOMPSON:  Looking for the families of my great(x3)-grandparents John McLean and Esther Thompson of Bathurst, New Brunswick.  John McLean was born about 1823 in Prince Edward Island and married Esther Thompson about 1844 probably in New Brunswick.  Esther Thompson was born about 1819 in Bathurst. 
          In 1851, John & Esther McLean were living in Colborne, Restigouche County, NB.  There were other Thompsons living near them in the census: Stephen Thompson/Ann Druggan, Laurance Thompson/Mary Gullette, Oliver Thompson and James Thompson/Helen Smith.  I’ve assumed that Esther is related to these Thompsons, but I have not discovered how.  The Thompsons are listed as Irish but all born in NB and John McLean Scottish but born in Canada.
          In the 1861 Census, John & Hester McLean were in Bathurst, Gloucester, NB with children Margaret, John, Allen, William and Alexander.
          In the 1881 Census, John & Esther were living in Bathurst with children Allen, William, Alex, Teresa and a second son also by the name of John. John McLean was a carpenter/shipwright. 
          I descend from daughter Margaret McLean who married James Strachan in Bathurst on 29 Dec 1864.  They later moved to the US in the early 1880s, first to Wisconsin and eventually to Los Angeles.  James was also a shipwright/carpenter.

I am trying to find the relatives from the U.S. as well as any  documents of when he arrived and where he might have lived in New  York.  I did trace a Miller family of German background but would like  to confirm this information or seek new clues.

STRACHAN:  Looking for information on the parentage of my great(x2)-grandfather James Strachan.  James was born about 1842-1845 in Bathurst, NB.  James’ mother may have been Jane Strachan listed as a widow in the 1861 Census in Bathurst, NB.  Jane may have been born in 1783 in Scotland.  I would love information on parents, vital dates, emigration dates, etc.

WILCOX: My great grandfather was Charles Verner Wilcox, who began Wilcox´s clothing store, which is now the Mercantile Building at the corner of Prince William and King Street, Saint John, N.B.  He was a Sea Captain at an early age, and I was told by my Grandmother, Mary Kathleen Wilcox, that  there was five previous generations of sea captains.
Charles Verner Wilcox was born in Nova Scotia, and his mother  was Sarah Peach.
There is confusion on Charles Verner  Wilcox´s  wife- Margaret Connelly and Margaret O´ Neil.  I am not sure if one died, and he married again.  Just not able to find enough records.
Another interesting part of my history is my grandmother; Mary  Kathleen Wilkins was married to someone, and then had it annulled.
She had a son; Charles Donald Wilcox (my father), and remarried to John Burton Wilkins, which shows as a record, I believe in 1947. I cannot find who she was previously married to.
 On my mother´s side- Violet Mae Shaw, and her father was Harold Shaw, and mother was Myrtle Melvin.  Apparently George Bernard Shaw (the poet) is related, and at one time was in contact with Harold.
