Q22-5832- GODWIN: I am looking for marriage records for my x2 grandfather Thomas Godwin (b: abt. 1828-England). After arriving in Canada, he married Eliza Russell between 1851 and 1862. Prior to the marriage, the 1851 census shows her living in Northumberland. They settled in Portland, Saint John. According to censuses he was Methodist. Hoping to get some info about his parents if recorded with the marriage. Have not been able to locate anything.
 
Thank you,

Q22-5831- CRAIG: I am a descendent of David Craig and Mary Steele from New Brunswick, Canada. I know the family came over from Scotland but I was hoping to figure out how to go back further into Scotland and follow the line from David and possibly Mary back. 

David Craig, son of James and Agnes Craig, born October 1749 near Edinburgh, Scotland. He died November 25, 1836 in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada. He was married to Mary Steele before 1779. Mary Steele was born May 1758/1759 in Beith, Scotland. She died August 20,1832 in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada.

Q22-5828-CAMMACK: I learned about an incident recently that caught my interest.  My grandparents and their ancestors on my mother’s side all came from Carleton County areas so have become anxious to learn more about Mr. Cammack.  I had never heard any family members from Carleton County talk about this story.

As the story goes, Mr. Cammack, (first name may have been Fred) was the last to hang in Woodstock for murdering several people from Woodstock (family members perhaps?) in 1905.  The person who told me about this knew very little himself but said a Cammack grandson became a member of Bangor Police Department and another grandson was a member of Bangor Fire Department. 

Do you recall if a story ever appeared in any Generations magazines?  I have read most of them since initial issues in 1978 but could have missed any stories of him before I had no interest.

I would appreciate your thoughts and if you know of any stories that ever appeared in Woodstock newspapers.
 
Thanks so much.

Q22-5827-TODD: I have a question for you regarding an old issue of Generations, (issue 23, March 1985).  There was an excellent story in there about my fifth great grandfather, a loyalist named Mix Todd.  It was written by Alan H. Hawkins, from South Portland, Maine.  He noted in his appendix that he was going to revisit Mix Todd in later issues to deal with his ancestry. Do you know if a subsequent issue of generations was ever written by him regarding Mix Todd? I have looked on our website but I’ve been unable to locate another issue relating to this subject.

Q22-5823-GARGARO: I am looking for more information about my grandfather, Antonio Gargaro.
He was incarcerated at the Westmorland Penitentiary in 1921. (1921 census) I am just inquiring if you have any further information about how long he resided in New Brunswick.
 
I found, in some preliminary research, that his sponsor was his brother-in-law John Macdonald and that he was a miner in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia but we are not sure how he got from Nova Scotia to New Brunswick.
 
My grandfather was married and had a child but we are not sure what happened to his first wife or the child.
 
Any information or guidance you could provide would be most appreciated.

Q22-5821-SMITH: Can you provide info on my 4x-great grandmother Elizabeth Scott b 1808 New Brunswick? She married Wm Bilonis Smith in New Brunswick, abt 1829. Other info l have is limited. A daughter Frances b 1834 in NB was found attending school there. Elizabeth’s husband Wm Bilonis Smith was attending protestant church in1829. Property records show Wm Smith coming from Washington, NH to NB. From that I traced Smith family back to John Smith from N Ireland. l got interested in Elizabeth Scott’s origins and seem to find no info. She died in Boston in 1851 or 1852, was buried there, then transferred to a cemetery in MA. No info in the cemetery other than other Scott people traced to Maine.
 
Maybe a Scott family expert could help?

Q22-5820-CARTIER: I have been looking for genealogical information for my great-great-grand-father, Paul Cartier. He would be Maliceet from Québec/New Brunswick.  He was born in New Brunswick. His name would go under Edward Cartier.  From the information we have, he was born in 1874.  All of our genealogical research and information leads to New Brunswick. Having the name, a copy of Edward's birth certificate or any information would be greatly appreciated. His family is very elusive, and seems to have changed their names.  We even have no proof of his marriage to his last wife Rose Bouchard.  We believe that Rose was his second wife. Paul's first wife would have passed away.  She would've been Edward’s real mother.

 It is amazing that Paul Cartier found his way to West Québec. We also would like to know why they Settled so far away.  Would they be running away from something? Why would he change his name?  So many questions. It is just weird that we can go further with his genealogy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It would mean so much for my family to finally know. Paul's daughter Marie Cartier is my great grandmother.

Q22-5817-DALL and CRAIG: I am finding research on my ancestors, retired British army soldiers who owned land at various times after 1815 until the mid-1830's in Quebec and New Brunswick, to be beyond my capabilities due to working full time and not being familiar with Canadian geography.  I live near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in the United States.  
 
I have a letter from the National Archives of Canada from 1992 that suggests microfilm with information that pertains to the two families.  They also suggested you could provide assistance with local resources.  
 
John Dall's widow Susannah (Hughes) Dall was buried in Quebec at Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec on January 19, 1865.  I have found a record of her living in Madawaska, Maine in 1830 along with her husband John, the Francis McDonald family and her son James Dall and his wife Bridget McDonald Dall. That is on the south shore of the St. John River across from St. Basile Church in New Brunswick, so it's possible she might have lived in New Brunswick either before or after 1830. The Canadian National Archives says they have a record of her husband John, a settler at Grand River, New Brunswick asking for provisions in 1823 and list a volume, set of pages and reel. 
 
Margaret Craig is buried in St. Basile Cemetery in Edmundston, Madawaska County, New Brunswick, Canada with interment around November 1, 1835.  Since she was living in Madawaska, Maine in 1830, I'm not sure whether her family was on the American side of the St. John River or had moved across to New Brunswick subsequent to 1830.  Any help you could provide with establishing what happened to the McDonalds between 1830 and 1835 would be appreciated.  If there is a way to get in touch with the cemetery, that would be helpful, too.
 
My grandfather indicated the two old soldiers probably perished in Canada's first cholera epidemic when they went up to Quebec to collect their pensions.  That's why I have no burial site for them.

Q21-5816-JONAH: I descend from the Jaunne/Jonah family. My mother's mother was Edith Jonah Hanscom, daughter of Judson Dinstead Jonah who lived in Moncton. I am trying to find a copy of the "Descendants of Pierre Jaunne from Montbeliard to New Brunswick" or something like that (I'm going from memory) but it's clearly out of print.

Reply to Q21-5816: According to WorldCat, there are just two sources for the books: the University of New Brunswick and the New England Historical Society.; they are not digitalized. The  NEHGS will provide photocopies. I am a member of the NEHGS. The easiest way to search for the books is to use “The Jonah Team” as the author.

Q21-5815-WILSON: I am looking for information on my 3rd great grandfather, Hugh Hamilton Wilson, and his family.  He was a doctor/coroner/surgeon and justice of the peace in Richibucto from approximately 1853 to 1874, when he passed away.  
 
Do you know if there may be any information on his medical practice, or his family?  His wife was Mary McLaughlin, born approximately 1828 in Ireland.  They had 5 daughters who were all born in New Brunswick:
  • Mary Jane born abt 1851
  • Margaret Ann Hamilton born 1852/1853
  • Sarah Elizabeth born Mar 20, 1854
  • Catherine Cassandra born 1857
  • Wilhelmina born 1858
 
Hugh's daughter, Margaret Ann Hamilton married James Simpson Hannay on June 14, 1871.  James went by "Sim" or "Simpson" sometimes.  He worked on the docks as a stevedore and sometimes worked for his father-in-law (Hugh H Wilson).  
 
Some of the avenues I have researched include the NB Provincial Archives, the Canadian Archives, Newspapers.com, Newspaperarchive.com, Findmypast, Irelandxo.com, Griffiths Valuation of Ireland, www.billmacafee.com, PRONI.com, RONI.com, derry.rootsireland.ie, johngrehman.com (Irish Ancestors), roevalley.com, cotyroneireland.com, Ancestry.com, MyHeritage.com, familysearch.org, Geni.com, www.Causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk, Dalhousie University, and University of Glasgow (he took at least one chemistry course there),  
 
I have also been in contact with various people across the globe who have an interest in Hugh through either his sister (Catherine who married George McCauley - they went to New Zealand), or through his various daughter's descendants. 
 
I am presently waiting on responses from the Kings University College, to see if he took any courses there.  I do know that he was certified by Dr's Toldervy and Odell (Fredericton) in 1857, though he practiced medicine at least back to 1853.  
 
I have numerous newspaper clippings and documents that I have found through my research. 
 
If you could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it!

Q21-5814-MacENTEE: I have been working on family tree research for quite some time now, and have been trying to solve a mystery surrounding the death of a woman in one of my trees.  Her name was Annie Till MacEntee and she died in 1946 of traumatic shock due to a deep cut from a circular saw to her head and shoulder.  (Her death certificate can be found on PANB)

She is buried in the Glassville Anglican Cemetery (memorial on Find A Grave)

I am curious if there might be any newspaper accounts of her death?  It is my belief that the Francis MacEntee she was married to, was actually his brother Norbert MacEntee.  Both Norbert and Frank were brothers of my grandmother (Mary Florence McEntee) and the family lived in Gaspe before emigrating to Massachusetts. When they came to the US, their name was changed to McEntee (not sure why) 
Norbert did not adjust well to life in the US and got in quite a bit of trouble, eventually landing in prison in VT for 2 years before he was deported back to Canada.  This is when I believe he stole the identity of his brother Frank, who was in fact an upstanding man who served in the Canadian Expeditionary forces.  Following the war, he returned to the US and never married.

If you can point me to any resources or news accounts, I would be extremely grateful.

Q21-5812-CLARK: I’ve hit a dead end with my 2X great-grandfather, Daniel Clark, who was born in New Brunswick in 1804 and died in Allen County, Indiana, USA, in 1866.  Family Search, Canada, shows a Daniel born in NB in 1804, but he was still there in 1870 according to census records. 
 
My Daniel may have emigrated as a boy or young man, perhaps with his parents.  He married in Ohio and sired my great-grandfather, Robert Clark, before moving to Indiana ca. 1850.
 
Any suggestions or leads you can offer will be much appreciated.

Q21-5811-GOODWIN: I’m looking for documentation that will confirm the parents and paternal grandparents of my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Goodwin (1821-1900). Family genealogy books say she was the daughter of Thomas “Lobster Tommy” and Sarah (Baxter) Goodwin of Tidnish and the granddaughter of David and Betsey (Woodworth) Goodwin, of Amherst Shore. Betsey was the daughter of Judith (Briggs) Woodworth, a confirmed descendant of Richard Warren, passenger on the Mayflower and I would like to apply for admission to the Mayflower Society. Elizabeth Goodwin married George Dobson, a Methodist, in 1838 and emigrated a few years later to the United States. My question is this: is it possible that there just isn’t any documentation to be found? She was born and married before newspapers and the census came to her part of the world. I would appreciate any advice. 

Thank you,

Q21-5810-POOLE: Any suggestions would be appreciated for solving a Missing Person cold case. About 1892 William Poole, a 48 year old Saint John resident and married father of 10, vanished, leaving his family mystified about his fate. According to family lore, he left in the company of a woman. The Daniel Johnson Newspaper Vital Statistics provides this account from The Daily Telegraph of October 31, 1892:
 
"Over a year ago William POOLE was engaged in Moore's nail factory in this city as a cutter. He received good wages and to all appearances leading a happy religious life. He was the father of ten children and his daughter said yesterday. 'There wasn't one who did not fai[r]ly idolize our father'. Mr. Poole was an announced firm believer in the Baptist doctrine and with his wife attended services both weekday and Sunday. Their faces were familiar in the Blue Rock mission at Carleton and on several Sundays Mr. Poole conducted services. Sometime over a year ago he decided to throw up his position in the nail factory and give his entire attention to spreading the truths of the gospel. He chose for his first field of labor the district in the vicinity of Gondola Point on the Kennebecasis and held services at the Baptist Churches in that vicinity. (see original 'A Preacher Missing From Gondola Point')"
 
Where did William go? Did he change his name? What about the woman? Do you know of a woman from a Baptist congregation at Gondola Point who also disappeared? Were there any children from this alleged relationship? Where and when did William die?

Q21-5807-BELDING: My great grandmother Mabel Ann Belding was born in St. John, October 14, 1867.  Her parents are listed on her death certificate as Elizabeth Belding and William Tice (possibly Tiner or Tyner).    My DNA matches on Ancestry.com seem to point to common ancestors David Belding (1798-1883) and Jane Thomas (1806-1838).  They both lived in Chance Harbor.  Their daughter Eliza Ann (1831-1879) married Nathaniel Cottle (1821-1879).  They had no recorded children.  We think Mabel may have been born out of wedlock, possibly to Eliza Ann.

Mabel married met my great grandfather William John Rawlinson, who was a organ builder from England sent to St. John to install a pipe organ in a local church, in 1885.  I have searched for more than 40 years, with no success in finding any link to her birth or marriage.  She does not appear in the 1871 or 1881 Canada Census.

Q21-5804-STEEVES: With reference to the article in Generations, Summer 2021, 'Finding 19th Century Photographs and Using Clues and Context to Help Identify Them' by John Elliott.

Lucinda Steeves: I am wondering if there were other photographs of young women, who might be the daughters of Hon William Henry Steeves also present at the Quebec Confederation Conference in 1864.

That there were more than one daughter present is confirmed by the diary of Mercy Coles of Prince Edward Island in an article written by Anne McDonald, 'Daughters of Confederation' published in August-September 2014 issue of Canada's History Magazine. Mercy attended the Conference with her father, delegate George Coles, and kept a diary of her adventure. With reference to the Steeves Family she writes: "The Misses Steeves (daughters of New Brunswick delegate William Steeves) seem to be the possessors of the parlour downstairs. I think they never leave it. There is a Mr. Carver who seems to be the great attraction. He is a beau of Miss Fisher's (daughter of New Brunswick delegate Charles Fisher), but they monopolize him."

Delegate Steeves had taken his wife, Mary, to the Charlottetown Conference in September 1864, and now it is time for his daughters to socialize. He had four daughters, and it is interesting to confirm that Lucinda was one of the attendees. There is a cushion in the William Henry Steeves House Museum, the material of which is said to have been made from a gown worn to the conference. This cushion travelled to the Ottawa and Winnipeg 150th Celebrations of Canada's Confederation, and was placed with the picture and diary of Mercy Coles.
     
More about Lucinda Steeves: After her father died in Saint John in 1873, she, her mother Mary, 5 siblings and brother-in-law moved from Saint John to Liverpool, England, where her uncle, Gilbert Steeves lived and operated Steeves Brothers family shipping business. On Dec 7, 1880, Lucinda married William James Parker and two years later had daughter Edith Mary Parker. On Jan 3 1906, Edith married Evelyn Francis Edward Seymour, the 17th Duke of Somerset. Their grandson, John Michael Edward Seymour is the present 19th Duke of Somerset and sits in the House of Lords. He has 4 children, so the line carries on.

I would love to see this photograph of Lucinda. Could it be sent by email, so I can put it in our genealogy database?

Q21-5803-LEE: I have been trying to find information concerning my great grandfather, Richard Lee, and I am contacting you at the suggestion of Jacelyn Bourque of the Canadian Museum of Immigration. It appears Richard Lee immigrated from England to New Brunswick in 1870 and settled in St. John/Chatham/Miramichi area, New Brunswick. I know Richard Lee married Lucinda Stymist (Stymiest or Stymest) of New Brunswick in 1876. Lucinda was the daughter of James Peabody Stymist and Margaret Ann Urquhart Stymist of New Brunswick. I am pretty sure Richard was born in Plymouth, England in 1849/1850, but would like to find out if he ever made a record to identify his parents. I wonder if you might have any Canadian record of Richard's parents. Thanking you in advance, I appreciate your help.

1. They were married in 1874, not 1876, as you indicated.  Announcement of their marriage can be found in Union Advocate of July 22, 1874 as follows:
m. Chatham (North Co.) 15th inst., by Rev J.M. Allan, Richard Lee, Chatham/Lucinda Stymeist of Alnwick.
 
See:  https://archives.gnb.ca/Search/NewspaperVitalStats/Details.aspx?culture=en-CA&guid=7E03182E-7A04-43E1-BE6B-4D734C9690F6
or

2. According to his tombstone he was born in 1849 and died in Pennsylvania in 1921 (but you probably have already seen this).
 
See:  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/198232407/richard-lee
 
3. They didn’t stay long in New Brunswick.  According to the 1900 USA census, they immigrated in 1879.  It also says that he was born in July 1850.
 
See:  https://www.ancestry.com/imageviewer/collections/7602/images/4114990_00153?usePUB=true&usePUBJs=true&pId=51713278
 
But, I’m sorry, I can’t find any source that gives the names of his parents.

Q21-5802-ARNOLD: I'm very interested in genealogical research, and I have been trying to find information about my 4x great grandfather, John Arnold, who was a Revolutionary War Loyalist born in 1754, in New Jersey and relocated to NB after the Revolutionary War ended. Most importantly, I'm trying to find out who his parent(s) were. Online records show that Samuel Arnold was his father, however some say that is wrong information, and that Samuel was the father to another John Arnold, in NJ. I haven't been able to find any info on that, however any information about John Arnold would be greatly appreciated.

Q21-5755-BAILEY:  I was sent an excerpt from a book about Nashwaaksis/Fredericton and the Bailey family but there was no attribution. I descend from William BAILEY (1796) married to Elizabeth Hatt who settled in Fredericton around 1833, through their son, Richard. I would like to know the name of the book and who wrote it. The excerpt begins on page 26: 
"It is very likely that William and his family, also Richard, had been living in Naskwaksis(sic) well before the 1851 census. William's daughter, Amelia, was certainly born in Nashwaaksis and according to family records lived there all her life...” 
The excerpt ends on the next page: "Best of all, there was always the 'Gibson line'. In those days, the railway did a lot for any community that it favoured with its presence." 
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Q21-5756-BOYD/TEAKLES: Mary Ann TEAKLES was born 5 October 1769 at Onslow, Colchester County, Nova Scotia. She lived with her family at Onslow until sometime after 1790, when she married Adam BOYD. Adam was a 1765 grantee at Truro Township. He married first Mary Johnson at Truro. She died there 15 May 1790, after having perhaps two children (a daughter, and a son Hugh). Adam and Mary Ann moved their family from Truro to Hopewell, Westmorland Co, NB in 1795 or 1796, in company with many of Mary Ann's Teakles and McCully relatives. They lived at Hopewell until ca 1806, then sold out and moved to the Sussex area, Kings Co. I haven't been able to trace either Mary Ann or Adam after that. The 1803 census of Hopewell suggests they may have had as many as four children, but I’ve never been able to associate any names with Adam, except for Hugh. Any information on this family would be helpful.

Q21-5758 CRABB: I’ve come to a dead end with the Crabb family. My 2x-great grandfather was James Albert Crabb born Mar 5, 1849 in Kelvin, Brant Co, ON. His parents were Henry W Crabb and his wife Arabel/Arabella (maiden name unknown) Unknown where they were married. They were in Ontario by the 1851 census.
       Henry stated his birth place was New Brunswick. At his 2nd marriage, to Elizabeth in 1865, he provided his parents' names - John and Mary.  His gravestone in Scotland, Brant Co, ON states that he died 15 Apr 1895, age 81 years, 1 month and 23 days. He would have been born approximately 20 Feb 1813 to John L Crabb and Mary Elizabeth Cram but I can find no confirmation. Can you point me in the right direction?

Q21-5760-GALLANT:  Would anyone have information on a Joseph GALLANT, son of Simon and Domithilde Gallant who was born on Dec 8, 1859 in Rustico, PEI. The family moved from PEI to the Shediac area of NB in the 1870s. I found him in the Shediac Parish at the time of the 1881 census; he was 22 years old and living with his widowed mother and three of his younger siblings (Sarah, Moses and Abraham). The trail goes cold at this point.  It is possible that he later went by the name Charles Gallant (possibly his middle name).  I found the descendants of the other children of Simon and Domithilde, including Abraham who stayed in the Shediac area and had 20 children with two wives, Elizabeth Cormier and Exilda Fougère.  I am hoping one of the descendants of Abraham may have information/memories of Joseph (Charles) Gallant.

Q21-5761-GOLDING: My question is about my great-grandmother, Charlotte GOLDING (1856- maybe 1941) born in Hampstead, Queens, NB.  Her parents were George James Golding (1814-1888) and Mary Ann Webb (1821-1898).  Siblings were James Thomas (1843-1932), Caleb (1845-1889), Albert Venning (1847-1885), and Henrietta (1861-1935).
I have not been able to find Charlotte after her son (my grandfather) Charles Francis Golding-Small (1880-1918) was born in Boston, Mass.  He died in Saint John.  Charlotte Golding apparently was married to my great-grandfather Gilbert Llewellyn Small born in Johnson, Queens.  However, I have never found a marriage certificate.  My grandfather was born in Boston Mass to Gilbert and Charlotte.  I discovered that they had a daughter before my grandfather named Laura who lived but 2 months in Boston.
My grandfather was brought to Saint John and was raised by his Uncle James.  I found Gilbert at home with his parents in the census of 1881 but no Charlotte or my grandfather Charles.  I have lots of stuff on Gilbert.  He married 3 more times and had many more children.

Q21-5762-HAYWARD:  I am looking for information on Hannah M HAYWARD (abt 1834 to between 1874-1879) According to census records she was born in NB. The earliest record we have for Hannah M Hayward is her marriage record of Jan 28, 1851, when she married John Hawkes (1829-1911) in Parish of Sussex, Kings Co, NB. John Hawkes immigrated, along with his parents and brother, from Ireland.  I am looking for any information I can find about Hannah’s family and where she lived previous to marriage. In fact, a DoD would be welcomed, too.
John Hawkes and his wife Hannah moved to North Lake sometime after their marriage.  Hannah’s last child appears to have been born around March 1774 and John Hawkes appears to have remarried sometime in 1779, based on the DoB of his last son (presumably with his second wife).  He would have died sometime after the 1911 census.

Q21-5764-IRVINE: Looking for information on my family who emigrated to New Brunswick, in 1862 from Fair Isle, Shetland, UK. I would be interested to know if there are any descendants currently living in New Brunswick.
The family: Robert IRVINE, born 28 Jan 1820, Fair Isle, Shetland Islands. On the 1881 census he was listed as being resident of Lancaster, St. John. His wife's name was Grizel Cheyne, born 21 Oct 1823, Dunrossness, Shetland Islands. Their children born in Fair Isle, Shetland were: John (born 11 Dec 1845), Margaret (born 8 Jul 1847), James (born 5 Mar 1849), Barbara (born 21 Oct 1852), Robert (born 27 Mar 1855), Jane (born 9 Nov 1857), Grace (born 24 May 1860) and finally one child, Alec, born in Fairville, New Brunswick in 1868.
   The family emigrated from Fair Isle, Shetland to New Brunswick aboard the Olympia in 1862.  Robert Irvine was a brother to my 3 times Great Grandfather.
I discovered in the Shetland Family History records that there is a Raymond Irvine born [date removed for privacy] in New Brunswick, who is my 4th cousin once removed. His father’s name is John L. Irvine, born [date removed for privacy], who was married on 25 May 1951. His fathers name was William Laurence Irvine, born 15 Feb 1898, died [date removed for privacy].
I would be interested to know if there is anyone in this family line who are still living in New   Brunswick and if they would be keen to get in touch.

Q21-5765-KOLLOCK/McINNIS: George KOLLOCK was born ca 1794 in Northumberland County, New Brunswick, likely at Bay due Vin. Sometime between 1795 and 1805, he moved with his family to Kouchibouguac. About 1815, he married Christine McINNIS, probably born between 1794 and 1797, either on Prince Edward Island, or at Kouchibouguac.
George and Christine lived at Kouchibouguac at least until 1836. I haven't been able to trace either of them after that year. From church records, it appears they had at least seven children, but I’ve only been able to find information on two. Their first daughter, Elizabeth Ann Kollock was born 22 March 1816, married James McDonald, and with a number of McInnis and McDonald kin, moved to the Bonaventure - Port-Daniel area of nearby Quebec. A second daughter, name unrecorded, was born and died 1817-1818. For the others, I have only birthdates or baptism dates: Simon (1819), Christine (baptized ca 1822), Marie (baptized ca 1822), Elizabeth Isabella (1826), and John (1829). Information on anybody in this family would be helpful.

I have their children (William was my ancestor) and subsequent generations.  I am looking for immigration and marriage records for them. I am also looking for the Quiggs who I think immigrated from Northern Ireland – James Quigg and Mary Cain.  If I can get some help or just a point in the right direction, that would be fantastic.

Q21-5767-MacDONALD: Alexander MacDONALD born abt 1774/5 likely in Newry, Co Down or Co Antrim; died Sept 23, 1829, lived at Dock Street in St John, NB (from obituary in New Brunswick Courier). His wife was Mary (maiden name unknown) born around 1777 in Newry, Co Down; died in 1847 at age 70 in South Boston, MA. Two sons, Moore McDonald (b 1815 - Newry; d 1872, Boston, MA); Jackson McDonald (b 1817 Newry; d 1860, Boston, MA); both brothers were iron moulders; it is unclear if this was also occupation of their father, as they were in early teens when he died.
The whole family arrived in St John, NB in July 1823 per the family Bible. After Alexander's death they moved south and arrived in Boston on Sept 17, 1833 based on immigration records.  Both brothers and mother were buried in Roman Catholic Cemetery in South Boston, however, the family story goes that they were Presbyterians who converted to RC in Boston to marry to Irish Catholic women. Further, the family story assumes the family was of Scottish ancestry and migrated to Northern Ireland in the 1700's.
I am looking for any burial records as well as information on this family while they were in St John NB (1823-1833) including any school records etc. Would there be any records related to Alexander's death or his will or any other documentation. We also have records that his son, Jackson and his wife Mary Ann W(h)all visited St John NB after their wedding in the 1840's, likely to visit his father's tomb or possibly to settle any issues remaining.

Q20-5705-PHILLIPS - answer: The answer to your question is found in the Hayward Collection on the NBGS web-site which includes "Descendants of Matthew Phillips of New York". Page 4 has details of Mary's descent from Matthew, details of her parents who were Loyalists (on page2 and 3) and her marriage to Solomon Tracy and list of her children. I thought that the Israel Smith who married their daughter Sarah might be related to the descendants of Loyalist Daniel Smith and Ruth Fitch in Blissville/Burton, Sunbury County (my mother's family), but I can find no record of him in the Hayward Collection document "Descendants of Daniel Smith, Loyalist, and his Wife Ruth Fitch". There were Israel Smiths in that family but none with the right dates or right wives.

Q21-5778-BOUNDARIES of SAINT JOHN: I have a query about the boundaries of Saint John.  According to Saint John's charter in 1785, the eastern portion of the City (Parr Town) was bounded by the harbour to the west, St. James St. to the south (the rest of the southern part of the peninsula was given over to military land), Sydney St. to the east and Union St. to the north.  The land north of Union St. was owned by Simonds, Hazen and White.  I've read that when Portland Parish was established in 1786 that it included all of the land west of St. Martin's Parish over to the St. John River which formed the boundary of Lancaster Parish.  Maps from the 1800s (there's a very detailed one dated 1875) show the boundary between Saint John and Portland as running along City Road and then through the rail yard to the harbour. 
 
My question is this: when did the area between Union St. and City Road, and the area between Sydney St. and Courtney Bay become part of Saint John?  I read an article about "The Loyalist House" which says that Union St. was the northern boundary of Saint John until 1889 when Portland and Saint John amalgamated.  However, maps from well before 1889 show the area north of Union St. as being part of Saint John and not part of Portland.
 
It seems that in 1785, the eastern part of Saint John (Parr Town) occupied only a portion of the peninsula that today includes Uptown Saint John and the City's South End.  So, to put my question another way - when did Saint John expand to include all of its present-day central peninsula - and before expansion, were parts of the peninsula in Portland Parish, especially the Simonds, Hazen and White lands north of Union St.? 
 
Thank you very much for your help!

Apparently, Hitchings came north to NB from Massachusetts in 1783 - 1784 and I see info in your web site about 4 Hitchings men coming about that time. Cape Ann Association web site provides similar info on United Empire migration.
Would like to obtain further info about the connections if possible. 
Many thanks,

Q21-5787-PROSSER BROOK or PARKINDALE: My family immigrated from England in 1952. We were sponsored by a farmer in and around Prosser Brooks or Parkindale. After 6 months my father purchased property in the same area and my sister and I were sent to a one room school about 4 miles from where we lived. I cannot be sure if it was Prosser Brook or Parkindale. I am hoping to find more (perhaps a photo) of this school, which of course, no longer exists. Many thanks.

Q21-5788-BETTS: David Tingley Betts had a daughter Mary Milicent Betts Wakem who married David Wakem Sr. who was born in RIchabucto where her parents lived. We have been told that he is part MicMac but cannot trace Silas Wakem. It appears that he was adopted by William and Eliza Wakem of Pugwash. He shows up on a census when he is 7 years old in Pugwash. We cannot find his birth certificate, but have been able to locate his death certificate. He was born in 1853 but not sure where. We have traced part of the Betts family to a Jones family who were micmac and married Susanne Jones in Massachusetts. We are trying to make the connection.
 We have been told that Anthony Betts still lives on the family farm in Browns Yard and would love to hear from him. Herman Betts was a half brother of Mary and he would have known but his family will not share information. Flora Betts of NH, USA may have been his mother and may have saved her egg money to send him up to New Brunswick because her new husband was abusive to him?

Q21-5791-OLTZ: I am researching my loyalist ancestors in New Brunswick. In 1787 Martin Oltz Sr. and his son Martin Jr. petitioned for land in I believe the French Lake area. I say believe because he actually had four grants - French Lake, Oromocto, Penniac and Nashwaak. He was a Baptist which is somewhat problematic given their reticence to collect records. Family tradition holds that they came from New York and Martin Sr. was oppressed with a large family.
So, my humble request of your organization is if you can find anything about Martin Sr. and his son a Martin Jr. born in 1752 married on 29 March 1796 to an Elizabeth Estabrooks born 1779. In Florence Estabrooks book on the Anglo Dutch Estabrooks she said Martin Sr.'s father was a soldier in Colonial America named Henry Oltz.

Q21-5792-MURRAY: I am researching my family tree and have hit a bit of a brick wall. My 3x great grandmother Sarah Ann Murray was born in (Murray's Corner?) Kent County, NB on July 8 1835. As far as I can tell she lived her whole life in NB. She married Michael McDonald on 09/03/1853 in Rexton, Kent NB. Sarah Ann also converted to Catholic on May 20, 1855. This is the only record that I can find that states any parentage. It states Margaret Grant and David Murray as her parents. This is the only place these names turn up, it’s almost like she didn't exist until her marriage in 1853. Her death was Jun 2, 1920 Harcourt NB. I also found a land grant in Harcourt too. What I would like to find is perhaps a birth record and any other records pre marriage of the Murray family and where/when they emigrated from. I believe she is Scottish heritage as was Michael McDonald. I think what I am looking for can't be found anywhere online that I have searched. I also have many antique family photographs of the Sarah Ann and Michael McDonald family...can't figure out who’s who but wouldn't mind sharing. The pictures are very old, some are tin.

Matthew married Elizabeth Fouquet Bowes 1834 Hantsport NS and died April 1837, Captain of schooner ENTERPRISE at Gulliver's Hole south of Digby NS carrying plaster out of Hantsport.
Their son my ggg grandfather William Henry was born 1835. We have a good BOWES family tree back to Isle of Wight 1600s. They came to PEI with the English army in 1810.
We have no roots or tree for Matthew and no DNA match with the Barker's who founded Hantsport NS.
Matthew owned a ship built in New Brunswick named WILLIAM that he sold in Halifax 1835. We don't know if he inherited it, bought it or had it built. I would like to know how to search for this ship.

Q21-5795-CARRIGAN: My name is Chuck Tolley and I am an archivist with RAF 158 Squadron Association. During WWII about 2,600 airmen served with this squadron in Bomber Command that was part of No. 4 Group and based in East Yorkshire, UK. During that time about 20% of the airmen posted to 158 Squadron were Canadian were members of the RCAF. One of the young airmen was Warrant Officer Joseph Thomas CARRIGAN, who was from South Nelson NB, and enlisted in the RCAF at Moncton on February 3, 1941. He was trained in Canada as an Air Gunner and was posted overseas in October 1942. He became part of a seven-man bomber crew piloted by Sgt. A.E. Winn, RAFVR and they were posted to RAF 158 Squadron at Lissett, East Yorkshire, on May 3, 1943, as a ‘Rear Gunner'. He went on to fly 15 operations against targets in Europe and, sadly, on October 3, 1943, his bomber was shot down by flak near Texel Island which are part of the Frisian Islands in northern Holland. No trace was found of the aircraft and the bodies of two of the airmen washed ashore on different islands later. Unfortunately, the body of W/O Carrigan was never recovered and he has no known grave. I have been working with a Dutch researcher, Willem de Jong, who is very interested in getting in touch with family members that are related to W/O Carrigan as there are some recent developments in this case. We are at a loss as to how we would get in touch with the family and wondering if you might be able to help.
 
Attached are three files that might be of help. The first is a short ‘bio’ our Association has on W/O Carrigan that outlines his basic service with 158 Squadron. The second is a picture from his RCAF military file. The third is a page in his file that refers to his family relationships.
 
We would appreciate it if you could steer us in the right direction.

ANSWER to Q21-5755-BAILEY: I am writing in response to your enquiry published in the Spring 2021 issue of NBGS's Generations magazine. The excerpt you quote is from the book by Ruth Scott titled:
 
Nashwaaksis
1765-1973
A History
 
It was published in 1986 and printed by Capital Free Press ltd., Fredericton, NB.
 
I was fortunate to find my copy in a used book store a few years ago. I grew up in Nashwaaksis and am also a descendant of William and Elizabeth Bailey through their daughter Hepsabeth who was born in 1837. A few years ago, in an attempt to pinpoint the Yorkshire origins of William and Elizabeth, I had researched all of their children but to no avail. I believe that William was married twice and that this Elizabeth was his second wife. Richard was probably a child of his first wife.
 
The story of the Baileys and Baileytown is an interesting one.

Where in Scotland he was born.?
John McLeod born around 1750 died November 1821 in Ludlow NB. (School Riot?)
He was married to Susannah Hovey b 1793 Gagetown NB daughter of Aaron Hovey and Dorothy Price.
There is a bit of confusion on my part.
Was Susannah Hovey married to a John or Roderick? I see that Susannah had a son Roderick Jr..
This Roderick jr. or a Roderick McLeod died 1851 and is buried in the Royal Highlands Cemetery. Why isn't my John buried there too?
After John died November 1821 Susannah Hovey McLeod remarried 1823 to Captain Able Pond, a neighbor.

Q21-5801-LADD: Seeking name of cemetery and proof of burial for Emily Ladd, b abt 1795. Do not know date of death. According to "Notes on Early Harvey Families of New Hampshire" by genealogist and author George Harvey, Sacramento, Dec 1979, Emily Ladd is buried in a cemetery in Florenceville, located below a school, which was destroyed by a lumberman.  George Harvey found her tombstone which was broken and on the ground in 1964.  It is possible that the stone was misplaced as I can't find her name on any of the cemetery burial lists in Florenceville.  He does not include the name of the cemetery where her grave was found.  She was most likely married more than once. Other names that may be associated with her are Emily Ladd Weeks Harvey. I am tracing her because she was married to my ancestor Joseph G. Harvey (1795-1864).  I would be very pleased if you were able to provide me with any information available about Emily.  Thank you.

I know Richard Lee married Lucinda Stymist (Stymiest or Stymest) of New Brunswick in 1876. Lucinda was the daughter of James Peabody Stymist and Margaret Ann Urquhart Stymist of New Brunswick.

Q21-5804-STEEVES: With reference to the article in Generations, Summer 2021, 'Finding 19th Century Photographs and Using Clues and Context to Help Identify Them' by John Elliott.
     Lucinda Steeves: I am wondering if there were other photographs of young women, who might be the daughters of Hon William Henry Steeves also present at the Quebec Confederation Conference in 1864.
     That there were more than one daughter present is confirmed by the diary of Mercy Coles of Prince Edward Island in an article written by Anne McDonald, 'Daughters of Confederation' published in August-September 2014 issue of Canada's History Magazine. Mercy attended the Conference with her father, delegate George Coles, and kept a diary of her adventure. With reference to the Steeves Family she writes: "The Misses Steeves (daughters of New Brunswick delegate William Steeves) seem to be the possessors of the parlour downstairs. I think they never leave it. There is a Mr. Carver who seems to be the great attraction. He is a beau of Miss Fisher's (daughter of New Brunswick delegate Charles Fisher), but they monopolize him."
     Delegate Steeves had taken his wife, Mary, to the Charlottetown Conference in September 1864, and now it is time for his daughters to socialize. He had four daughters, and it is interesting to confirm that Lucinda was one of the attendees. There is a cushion in the William Henry Steeves House Museum, the material of which is said to have been made from a gown worn to the conference. This cushion travelled to the Ottawa and Winnipeg 150th Celebrations of Canada's Confederation, and was placed with the picture and diary of Mercy Coles.
     More about Lucinda Steeves: After her father died in Saint John in 1873, she, her mother Mary, 5 siblings and brother-in-law moved from Saint John to Liverpool, England, where her uncle, Gilbert Steeves lived and operated Steeves Brothers family shipping business. On Dec 7, 1880, Lucinda married William James Parker and two years later had daughter Edith Mary Parker. On Jan 3 1906, Edith married Evelyn Francis Edward Seymour, the 17th Duke of Somerset. Their grandson, John Michael Edward Seymour is the present 19th Duke of Somerset and sits in the House of Lords. He has 4 children, so the line carries on.
I would love to see this photograph of Lucinda. Could it be sent by email, so I can put it in our genealogy database?

Q21-5807-BELDING: My great grandmother Mabel Ann Belding was born in St. John, October 14, 1867.  Her parents are listed on her death certificate as Elizabeth Belding and William Tice (possibly Tiner or Tyner).    My DNA matches on Ancestry.com seem to point to common ancestors David Belding (1798-1883) and Jane Thomas (1806-1838).  They both lived in Chance Harbor.  Their daughter Eliza Ann (1831-1879) married Nathaniel Cottle (1821-1879).  They had no recorded children.  We think Mabel may have been born out of wedlock, possibly to Eliza Ann.
Mabel married met my great grandfather William John Rawlinson, who was a organ builder from England sent to St. John to install a pipe organ in a local church, in 1885.  I have searched for more than 40 years, with no success in finding any link to her birth or marriage.  She does not appear in the 1871 or 1881 Canada Census.

ANSWER to Q21-5803 - I have found the following bits of information on Richard Lee who married Lucinda Stymeist:
 
1. They were married in 1874, not 1876, as you indicated.  Announcement of their marriage can be found in Union Advocate of July 22, 1874 as follows:
m. Chatham (North Co.) 15th inst., by Rev J.M. Allan, Richard Lee, Chatham/Lucinda Stymeist of Alnwick.
 
See:  https://archives.gnb.ca/Search/NewspaperVitalStats/Details.aspx?culture=en-CA&guid=7E03182E-7A04-43E1-BE6B-4D734C9690F6

2. According to his tombstone he was born in 1849 and died in Pennsylvania in 1921 (but you probably have already seen this).
 
See:  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/198232407/richard-lee
 
3. They didn’t stay long in New Brunswick.  According to the 1900 USA census, they immigrated in 1879.  It also says that he was born in July 1850.

ANSWER to Q21-5800- John McLeod - 42nd. Highland Regiment - Black Watch - in the Fall 2021 “Generations.”
 
Please see two items attached, the first of which I contributed to “Generations’ and was published in the Spring 2008, details of the cemetery, including pictures were published in the summer edition. 
 
For the most part, all of the first generation of Highlanders are buried at the 42nd. Highland – Pleasant Valley Cemetery although there are no stones left from that time as the article indicates, but that does not mean that John McLeod is not buried among his comrades because there are no records from that time.  Also, if he died in 1821 in Ludlow, which is across the border in Northumberland Co., from York and directly connected to the 42nders land grant by a road, (originally called The Portage Road) he may have been buried in either of the two Boiestown Cemeteries that date back to that time.  His land grant number, 164 is further north in the grant area and close to several others with the same surname, which might indicate a relationship.
 
My mother-in-law is directly connected to two 42nd. Highlanders as shown in the land grant listing and for the most part she is interconnected loosely to just about every one of the families in that area, including Abel Pond, whom you mention as marrying as a second wife Susannah Hovey.  I have that connection listed in my family tree, but not her first husband or parentage, and only because Abel had a daughter in his first marriage who married into my mother-in-law’s Clark line.
 
My mother-in-law had a 3X g.g.g. William MacLeod (most of those on the Nashwaak spelled the name in that fashion in succeeding years although the land grant says “Mc”) who was son and grandson of Roderick MacLeods, both born in Scotland, but specific place not identified.  This William McLeod is possibly the father of Roderick McLeod who died in 1851 and is buried at the very back of the cemetery which is the area of the early burial sites closer to the river as that family remained in the Nashwaak Valley area.  I have not found any documentation that confirms who that Roderick belongs to as he died prior to the 1851 census which may not have actually been completed until 1852.  I have a picture of his gravestone if you would like it.
 
I have a book ‘Scotland and her tartans that loosely shows where clans ‘loosely originated and list as “Mac.”  The MacLeods are shown in The Isle of Skye and Lewes and also on the mainland nearby.  All of these areas are in the far north-west of Scotland.

Q21-5810-POOLE- Any suggestions would be appreciated for solving a Missing Person cold case. About 1892 William Poole, a 48-year-old Saint John resident and married father of 10, vanished, leaving his family mystified about his fate. According to family lore, he left in the company of a woman. The Daniel Johnson Newspaper Vital Statistics provides this account from The Daily Telegraph of October 31, 1892.
“Over a year ago William POOLE was engaged in Moore's nail factory in this city as a cutter. He received good wages and to all appearances leading a happy religious life. He was the father of ten children and his daughter said yesterday. 'There wasn't one who did not fai[r]ly idolize our father'. Mr. Poole was an announced firm believer in the Baptist doctrine and with his wife attended services both weekday and Sunday. Their faces were familiar in the Blue Rock mission at Carleton and on several Sundays Mr. Poole conducted services. Sometime over a year ago he decided to throw up his position in the nail factory and give his entire attention to spreading the truths of the gospel. He chose for his first field of labor the district in the vicinity of Gondola Point on the Kennebecasis and held services at the Baptist Churches in that vicinity. (see original 'A Preacher Missing From Gondola Point')”
Where did William go? Did he change his name? What about the woman? Do you know of a woman from a Baptist congregation at Gondola Point who also disappeared? Were there any children from this alleged relationship? Where and when did William die?

Q21-5811-GOODWIN: I’m looking for documentation that will confirm the parents and paternal grandparents of my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Goodwin (1821-1900). Family genealogy books say she was the daughter of Thomas “Lobster Tommy” and Sarah (Baxter) Goodwin of Tidnish and the granddaughter of David and Betsey (Woodworth) Goodwin, of Amherst Shore. Betsey was the daughter of Judith (Briggs) Woodworth, a confirmed descendant of Richard Warren, passenger on the Mayflower and I would like to apply for admission to the Mayflower Society. Elizabeth Goodwin married George Dobson, a Methodist, in 1838 and emigrated a few years later to the United States. My question is this: is it possible that there just isn’t any documentation to be found? She was born and married before newspapers and the census came to her part of the world. I would appreciate any advice.

I have very little info on him but going further on my line I have been able to find ancestors as far back as the 1500's. Any information on the Mosher family would be greatly appreciated.

Q21-5814-MacENTEE: I have been working on family tree research for quite some time now, and have been trying to solve a mystery surrounding the death of a woman in one of my trees.  Her name was Annie Till MacEntee and she died in 1946 of traumatic shock due to a deep cut from a circular saw to her head and shoulder.  (Her death certificate can be found on PANB)
 
She is buried in the Glassville Anglican Cemetery (memorial on Find A Grave)
 
I am curious if there might be any newspaper accounts of her death?  It is my belief that the Francis MacEntee she was married to, was actually his brother Norbert MacEntee.  Both Norbert and Frank were brothers of my grandmother (Mary Florence McEntee) and the family lived in Gaspe before emigrating to Massachusetts. When they came to the US, their name was changed to McEntee (not sure why) 
 
Norbert did not adjust well to life in the US and got in quite a bit of trouble, eventually landing in prison in VT for 2 years before he was deported back to Canada.  This is when I believe he stole the identity of his brother Frank, who was in fact an upstanding man who served in the Canadian Expeditionary forces.  Following the war, he returned to the US and never married.
 
If you can point me to any resources or news accounts, I would be extremely grateful.

Q21-5815-WILSON: I am looking for information on my 3rd great grandfather, Hugh Hamilton Wilson, and his family.  He was a doctor/coroner/surgeon and justice of the peace in Richibucto from approximately 1853 to 1874, when he passed away.  
 
Do you know if there may be any information on his medical practice, or his family?  His wife was Mary McLaughlin, born approximately 1828 in Ireland.  They had 5 daughters who were all born in New Brunswick:
Mary Jane born abt 1851
Margaret Ann Hamilton born 1852/1853
Sarah Elizabeth born Mar 20, 1854
Catherine Cassandra born 1857
Wilhelmina born 1858
 
Hugh's daughter, Margaret Ann Hamilton married James Simpson Hannay on June 14, 1871.  James went by "Sim" or "Simpson" sometimes.  He worked on the docks as a stevedore and sometimes worked for his father-in-law (Hugh H Wilson).  
 
Some of the avenues I have researched include the NB Provincial Archives, the Canadian Archives, Newspapers.com, Newspaperarchive.com, Findmypast, Irelandxo.com, Griffiths Valuation of Ireland, www.billmacafee.com, PRONI.com, RONI.com, derry.rootsireland.ie, johngrehman.com (Irish Ancestors), roevalley.com, cotyroneireland.com, Ancestry.com, MyHeritage.com, familysearch.org, Geni.com, www.Causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk, Dalhousie University, and University of Glasgow (he took at least one chemistry course there),  
 
I have also been in contact with various people across the globe who have an interest in Hugh through either his sister (Catherine who married George McCauley - they went to New Zealand), or through his various daughter's descendants. 
 
I am presently waiting on responses from the Kings University College, to see if he took any courses there.  I do know that he was certified by Dr's Toldervy and Odell (Fredericton) in 1857, though he practiced medicine at least back to 1853.  
 
I have numerous newspaper clippings and documents that I have found through my research. 
 
If you could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it!

Q20-5739 ESTEY: My ancestor Mary Elizabeth Estey born September 6th 1800 and died March 8th, 1864 and was married to the Reverend Samuel Hartt (a prominent Baptist minister). They're both buried in the Lower Waterville UNited Baptist Cemetery. I have a family history book that states she was taken care of by her Aunt Ruth Estey Everett and Mary was the granddaughter of John and Molly Hartt Estey who resided in Kingsclear in York County. Her parents are a complete mystery. Do you have any source that states Mary was raised by her aunt Ruth and she was related to John and Molly? I can't find anything in the Provincial Archives or Probates that connects Mary to any of her relatives besides her husband and children. Any help would be appreciated.

Q20-5741 HARTT: I've searched and searched, but I can't find anything that proves my ancestor Thomas E. Hartt (born August 22, 1823 and died March 2, 1885, married to Mary Jane True ) was the son of Reverend Samuel Hartt Jr. and Mary Estey Hartt. I did find a NB census from 1851 that lists Samuel and Mary's other children, but Thomas was already married and had his own separate household when the census was taken, so he wasn't listed under his father's household.  If anyone can help me prove Thomas was Samuel and Mary's son, I would be so grateful.

Q20-5744 LANGILLE:   I am researching information for Roma Langille murder/suicide in
Baywaters, near Grand Bay 1967.   Jean Vair was my grandmother.  She passed away a few years ago in Sudbury, Ontario.  She did have two children with Arthur Langille.  Twins.  They are still living so I hesitate to post their names.  They were adopted out when Arthur died.  Not sure when though.  One of the twins found Jean many years ago and that is how I came to find this part of my family tree. Jean had a child in 1942.  A girl named Roma.  She died August 1976.  When she died she went by the name of Roma Silver.  She was involved in a murder suicide in Bayswater, New Brunswick.  Maurice Hoar was the gentleman that died along with her.  I only have a newspaper clipping on the incident and know no further details than this. I am wondering if Arthur Langille was the father of Roma.  It makes sense since they married the same year. Jean was 19 and Arthur was 64.  I would love to find out more about Roma.  I wonder if she had children?  My cousins would be older I believe but not by much.  I am 38.  I do know that Roma lived in Saint John in her her teen years.  I am not sure who raised her but she did know who her mother was.

Q20-5746 McCAUSTLIN: I recently found out through DNA testing, that my biological father was from St. John, New Brunswick. His name was Edward Leo McCaustlin [1902-1969] and he seems to have lived all his life in St. John except for when he served in the Carlton and York regiment of the Canadian Army in the Second World War.  For a while he was stationed in England, where I was born in 1943. I believe that after he came home from the war, he lost a leg, whether it was through an accident or through an illness I do not know. He died in 1969 in D.V.A. Lancaster Hospital in West St. John where he had been for 1 year, 3 months and 25 days. I have been able to find his birth, marriage and death certificates and also where he is buried, and I have sent off for his army service records, but because of Covid there is no telling when I will receive them. Through Ancestry.com I was also lucky enough to get in touch with, and visit [before Covid], a niece of his in BC.
I am planning a trip to New Brunswick soon, probably in 2021, and want to arm myself with as much information about him as I can before I get there so that I can visit some of the places where he lived and worked. So, I was wondering if any members could offer me advice on where to go and what to look for in my search once I get to New Brunswick.

Q20-5748 OSBORNE: My great-great grandfather James Osborne (1852-1923) settled in Ferrybanks, which was near Sand Brook and Wirral.  According to Harlan Nason, this area "was settled about 1870 by several families who left Saint John to escape flu epidemics that had caused much sickness in that city" (Harlan Nason, Back Creek and South Branch Settlements (Wirral, N.B., 2000), p. 42).  Nason states that this settlement was named after the Baptist minister who led the group.  It burned in 1903.  James Osborne moved to nearby Wirral and is buried in its United Baptist Church Cemetary. When I last visited some years ago, relatives were still living on the family property in Wirral. It would be good to know if anyone has more information about this initial settlement of Ferrybanks, or about the antecedents of this James Osborne.

Q20-5749 QUIGLEY: I am Dennis Murphy of Alabama, USA. I am researching the Quigley side of my family.
In his book, OLD NORTH ESK on the Miramichi, W D Hamilton mentions that my John Murphy married a Mary Quigley from the Newcastle Parish.
His book (I have the first edition only) states that church records say the Mary was from the Newcastle Parish. As his book was focused on Old North Esk on the Miramitchi, he did not go into detail.
In our family oral history, there is a story of a letter Mary Quigley Murphy wrote to a grandchild in Pennsylvania, USA.  In that letter she wrote that her brothers had sent for her in an arranged marriage with John Murphy of North Esk. After she arrived, she found out that John was 13 years her senior, an old man as she put it. Mary was in her early 20's, John was about 36. Mary also said that he brothers came over in the company of the Murphy brothers.
Oral family history places them in County Wexford, as relayed to me by my grandfather James Stanley Murphy Sr. James Stanley is a grandson John Murphy.
I have found only one Mary Quigley in County Wexford who was baptized 24 JUN 1810 in Wexford. There is only one Quigley family in County Wexford at that time.
She arrived in New Brunswick about 1832/3 and was married in a Catholic ceremony in 1833.
The Murphy & Quigley brothers, if they came together, would have arrived about 1817 according to legal documents available. I would like to know more about the Quigley's of Newcastle in that era

Q20-5752 WILSON: My grandmother was born in St Stephen, in 1872. I would love to obtain a copy of her birth certificate.
She was a fascinating woman – she married the son of one of the founders of the Prudential Insurance Company, Edgar Percy Ward.  After Edgar died at age of 44 she took her daughter, my Mother, to France, Switzerland and Italy where she lived as a single and well-off woman between the great wars. She died in 1948 and is buried in the in Rome, Italy. I would be most fascinated to obtain a copy of her birth certificate.  Unfortunately, birth certificates are not available online prior to 1892.

Q20-5753 WORRALL:   I am currently researching my family tree and have hit a huge brick wall in regards to the family of my great great grandmother, Mary Jane Worrall.  I am looking for any information on a merchant who I believe was George Worrall and lived in St John in the early 1800’s up to about 1840.  His wife’s name was Elizabeth but I do not know her maiden name.  They have for sure two children, George born in 1821 (was a merchant in his own right in St John on Duke Street and died in 1872) and Mary Jane born in 1824 in St John, Mary Jane married my Great great grandfather, Arthur Daniel on August 7, 1849 in St John. Arthur is the younger brother of Thomas W. Daniel who managed a major store in St John, Daniel & Boyd. Arthur was a mill owner and his mill was Kirk and Daniel set in Portland beside St John.  However, I am stumped on the Worrall side of the family.  All efforts to locate or even find information on this line has hit a dead end.  Can you provide any information on obtaining perhaps marriage, birth or death records for the Worralls.  I have searched all on line database for New Brunswick but they do not go far enough back and are to no effect.  Dates I have are as follows:
Mary Jane Worrall - Born 1824 in St John (Can I get a certificate for this?)  Died 1894 (obtained the burial certificate, no parent names)
George Worrall Jr. - Born 1821 (Can I get a certificate??)  Died 1872 (Can I get a certificate for this??)
Elizabeth ??? married name Worrall - I found she was born in Nova Scotia in 1792 but have no name to search Death 1874 St John (Can I get a burial or death certificate?? So far no luck)
George Worrall Sr - Complete mystery.  I do know he was merchant and believe he had ships that sailed out of St John in the 1830’s but can find nothing else

Q20-5754 UNMARKED GRAVE PROGRAM: My name is Paul Gallinger, I have been tasked to search for the names and locations of all eligible Canadian and Allied Veterans who have died five or more years ago, and lie in unmarked graves. In March of 2019, the Indigenous Veterans Initiative was launched in an effort to commemorate and honour the memory of over 18,000 Indigenous Veterans, many of whom are thought to lie in unmarked graves.
   In June 1996 the Last Post Fund (LPF) created the Unmarked Grave Program whose objective is to provide a permanent military marker for eligible Veterans who lie in unmarked graves.
  This program is available to veterans whose grave has not had a permanent headstone or foot marker for five years or more, and who have not previously received funeral and burial funding from the LPF or Veterans Affairs Canada
 
Indigenous Veterans
   The LPF introduced the Indigenous Veterans Initiative which has two components:
  To provide grave markers to Indigenous Veterans deceased for five years and lying in unmarked graves,
   To add traditional names of Indigenous Veterans to existing military grave markers.
    Both of these initiatives’ components require research and community support from members of Indigenous communities throughout Canada.

Q20-5725 COFFEY: I am researching a family named Coffey which immigrated from Galway, Ireland in 1847. They arrived in May 1847 on the barque Amazon, but the father died at Partridge Island in July.  Four young children were placed in the destitute orphan asylum, probably in June/July 1847, spent a few weeks in the almshouse (for illness) in October, then were sent back to the orphan asylum in November 1847. The older sister, Bridget was 15 at the time and was (apparently) not permitted to take the younger children with her, but in November 1847 succeeded in taking them out of the orphan asylum to Boston.
     Do you know of any genealogical sources showing the names and death dates (or burial records) of the immigrants who died in connection with the mass migration of 1847? (The family's mother, also named Bridget, is ASSUMED to have died while crossing from Liverpool, but no deaths were reported on the barque Amazon and she does not show up as a Partridge Island casualty).
    Additionally, do you know of any registers of children who were sent to the destitute orphan asylum?
    My only current sources are an index to the immigrant hospital which shows the 4 children entering and then returning to the orphan asylum, plus a notation that John Coffey, age 40, died at Partridge Island in July 1847. The 15-year-old Bridget was reported to have "returned from Boston" to take the children out of the orphan asylum and take them to Boston.
     Admittedly, these people stayed in Saint John for a short period of time and left few legal actions behind before they relocated to Boston, MA, so it is probable that they left no other genealogical tracks.

Q20-5731 McIVER:  I wonder if someone could quickly look to see if my great grandfather is listed in your database of obituaries. He was born in Scotland in 1824, joined the Royal Navy and then the Coast Guard and eventually retired to Arthuret parish near Carlisle, England. The Arthuret church burial list includes his wife, a son and his wife and one child. The church registration of deaths lists these individuals as well as John McIver, my great-grandfather, but he is listed as having died in "Springfield NB" on 11 Dec 1900. He is listed in the 1891 census for Arthuret parish, and I know his wife died in 1898, but I don't know when or why he might have travelled to Canada. I searched New Brunswick vital statistics and Findagrave.com, but no sign of him, even with trying common variations: McIvor, MacIver, and MacIvor. This is my only possible family history connection to New Brunswick all the others were prairie homesteaders. I am hoping someone in your organization would be willing to conduct this one search of your obit database and let me know what they find, if anything. If this request is contrary to NBGS policies or practices, I understand and thank you for taking the time to read this! Stay well.

Q20-5709 BRADFORD: I am William John Bradford's granddaughter (descended from the Mayflower's William Bradford), and I'm currently applying for a Mayflower Society membership. I'm trying to track down information about my ancestry on my father's side and I hope you can help. The person assisting me with the Mayflower application mentioned there is a .pdf Family Histories document held by the Charlotte County branch of NBGS that lists 'Bradford ancestry' (I'm hopeful this has been digitalized). There might be more information the NBGS has about the Bradford family too, which I would appreciate as well. I am a member of NBGS, looked up the general surname index on the name Bradford and requested details but haven't yet heard anything back, so I thought I'd check here too.

Q20-5713 HOLMES: I'm searching for a list of the relatives born before and after Lillian (often spelled Lilian) Hannah Holmes.  She was born in 1901 and passed in 1986.  She married James David Giberson in 1922.  They had one daughter, Doris Hannah, born in 1923.  I believe Lillian was from Westmoreland County. The book A Homestead on the Old Post Road: a story of the Daniel and Charlotte (Hoyt) Holmes family compiled and written by Peggy Vasseur, (who, I believe, is the president of the New Brunswick Genealogical Society) is not readily available for borrowing.  I've tried to borrow the book from the Moncton Public Library through the Interlibrary Loan service, but to no avail.  I've read a description of the book and it suggests that it has information of the Holmes families from Westmoreland County.
  I've checked through the National Libraries book locator system and it says there are no holdings anywhere.  Sort of cuts into the hope of borrowing a copy, doesn't it? 
     Anyway, I was wondering if you could tell me of any way to borrow the book,or purchase a copy.  Everything indicates a limited print run for the title so I'm not optimistic about seeing one, short of driving to Moncton and reading the copy in the Reference Room.  (I live in the Musquodoboit Valley in Nova Scotia.)
   Could someone enlighten me on these matters?  I'm trying to compile a family tree for my brother-in-law who has no computer, nor computer skills to do it himself.  Also, he has no transportation to go to the libraries and archives to conduct a search.

Q20-5715 McANDREW: I have been trying to research my father's family who came to St. John from Scotland in the early/mid 1800's.  My father's name was John Aubrey McAndrew, his father was John Parker McAndrews and his father was David McAndrews.  David was born in Scotland in 1833 and died in St. John on Oct. 7, 1895.  We believe he came to St. John with his older brother Robert, born in 1821 and died in St. John, on or about Feb. 18, 1903.  They are both buried in Fernhill Cemetery, St. John.  What I am trying to find is their father's first name.  I have worked with a genealogist in Inverness, Scotland, but without the father's name we could come up with nothing.  Would you be able to assist me in any way with finding that name?

Q20-5716 McCAUSTLIN: I have found that one of my persons of interest, Edward Leo McCaustlin, came back from serving in WWII and went back to St John NB and may have got himself a job in the St John docks.

I am wondering if you would be able to advise me on where I might look for information regarding this accident, bearing in mind that the information that I have is a little on the 'sketchy' side.

Q20-5717 McGOWANS: My family, the McGowans of Memramcook Corner, were early settlers of the Memramcook Valley. Michael McGowan arrived in Memramcook in 1836 from County Donegal, Ireland. He married Catherine Doherty of Ballyshannon, County Donegal, Ireland (who arrived a few years earlier - presumably with her father Edward Doherty) in 1840. Michael McGowan purchased 70 acres near Memramcook Bridge "at Charters" in 1846. I believe Benjamin Charters was the one who completed the bridge across the Memramcook River connecting Memramcook Corner (previously known as Charters Corner) with the road to Moncton. Michael McGowan operated the blacksmith shop, McGowan & Son, in Memramcook Corner near the railway station until his retirement and later death in 1899. Michael's son Daniel took over the blacksmith business and operated the blacksmith shop until his retirement and later departure from the Memramcook Valley in 1919. His sons immigrated to Massachusetts in the early part of the 20th century and Daniel left Memramcook to be closer to them. Michael McGowan had a brother who arrived in 1847 and who was a farmer. He had two sons, Patrick and John, and two daughters, Margaret and Ann. 
   I am wondering if there are any old photographs of the Memramcook Corner area, and specifically of the McGowan & Son blacksmith shop there? Further, I am wondering if there is a collection of old photographs that might include members of the McGowan family?

Q20-5718 PATTON: I am searching for information about my ancestors: Mark Patton (died 1781), his wife Sarah Ann McGowan (died 1808), and their daughter Mary who married Colonel John Allan. 
    Specifically: Do you happen to know the location of Inverma Farm? I have read that it might be around Point de Bute?
I would love to also find the burying ground where Sarah Ann (McGowan) Patton was laid to rest (see passage below)
I would greatly appreciate anything you are able to share. I grew up in Nova Scotia, but now live in Seattle, Washington and find it a bit more challenging to visit some of the places I am reading about. I am including a passage below that contains some pertinent details.
   The Chignecto Isthmus and It's First Settlers (1902) p 65-66 Inverma, the home of Sheriff Allan, is now owned, in part, by Councillor Amos Trueman, and is still called by that name. It consisted at that time of three hundred and forty-eight acres of marsh and upland and was no doubt part of the Allan grant of 1763. Besides the Sheriff's own house there were six or seven small houses occupied by Acadian families as tenants, also two large barns and four smaller ones.
    Allan's wife was Mary Patton, the daughter of Mark Patton, who at one time was a large property-owner on the Isthmus. Patton Point, in the Missiquash valley, still goes by his name. His home farm joined the glebe lands of the parish, and was afterwards bought by WIlliam Trueman and given to his son, Thomas. I find the following entry in WIlliam Trueman's journal, referred to elsewhere:
    "Old Mrs. Patton was buried at the burying-ground by Thomas Trueman, July 31st, in the 92nd year of her age."
    This lady was no doubt Mrs. Allan's mother. She had continued to live at the old place after Thomas Trueman had taken possession, and as this was in the year 1808, she had lived thirty-two years after her daughter left the country.

Q20-5719 SHEFFROTH: I've hit a brickwall researching a line of my ancestors from Saint John, New Brunswick. The man who I cannot seem to get past is William Sheffroth (variants: Sheffrow, Shaffrow, Shaffro etc...). He was born in the mid 1790s. He was from the parish of Portland in Saint John and married Jane Anderson of Portland in the same city in 1828. On the 1851 census, he is living in Norton with his wife and children and is written as being a loyalist and native of the colony. It has been suggested to me that he could be a descendant of a loyalist who was granted land in New Brunswick. I have pursued this line of thought but have come back empty handed. What are the resources available for the time period in New Brunswick, and specifically, Saint John? I'm at a loss on how to proceed here so I will be very grateful to any help you can extend.

Gen. of Canada]. Noted is Gail Bonsall Kaye [Pipes] who would have been the niece of the brothers wrote a family history titled "10 Peel Street & the Kaye Family 1847-1947."  I am hoping to acquire a copy and also in hopes that like her artistic father, John Henry, she may have painted one or any of the Collies.

Q20-5703 MCFARLANE: Seeking information on the MAIDEN NAME of my fourth great-grandmother, Patience MCFARLANE (abt 1763-1843) of St. Patrick, Charlotte County, New Brunswick. To date, what I know about her is based upon a handful of primary documents. One of these documents was her application for a pension as the widow of an "Old Soldier" in 1833. The "Old Soldier" was Walter MCFARLANE who had served with the 74th Regiment of Foot. She married Walter MCFARLANE in St. George in 1795. Two Charlotte County Deeds established that Walter was her second husband. Deeds associated with one James TAYLOR established that Patience MCFARLANE was his mother and advisor in the disposition of the lands owned by his late father, Ralph TAYLOR. Ralph TAYLOR has a grantee of the Penobscot Loyalists. To date, I have been unable to locate a record of her marriage to either Walter MCFARLANE or Ralph TAYLOR.

Q20-5704 O’REGAN: Daniel Francis O'Regan (B:1816 Kinsale Ireland) (Imm: 1836) Lived in Hopewell Hill New Brunswick Married Mary Steeves (originally was Stief) 8 Mar 1847 - are marriage certificates available anywhere?
1870 ran for provincial assembly - being politics are there licences that he would of applied for to run? 1871 had a liquor licence and in 1881 was a hotel keeper - are there licences required for these? Also of interest is his son Robert Emmett O'Regan (B: 4 Sep 1852 at Hopewell Hill)
1871 census had him listed as a mariner - would there have been an apprenticeship and graduation with a licence from some organisation?

Q20-5704 O'REGAN and his family - answer.
   You can find Daniel Francis O'Regan's headstone on findagrave.ca.  Daniel is buried in the Riverside Catholic Cemetery, Riverside-Albert, Albert County, New Brunswick.  The inscription on the headstone reads:"In Memory of Daniel F O Regan died March 30, 1884 age 68 years a native of Kinsale Ireland".  
Daniel's death was reported in the Saint John Daily Telegraph on April 5, 1884 as follows:
   "d. Hopewell Hill (Albert Co.) 30th ult., Daniel Francis O'Regan, a native of Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland, age 68 years".
   You can find Robert Emmett O'Regan's headstone on findagrave.ca.  Robert is also buried in the Riverside Catholic Cemetery.  The inscription on the headstone reads:
   In Memory of Robert E. Emmett son of Daniel and Mary O'Regan Sept. 23, 1849-May 16, 1852
   Mary O'Regan is buried in Hopewell Hill Protestant Cemetery.  The inscription on the headstone reads:
   Mary O'Regan d. 29 Dec 1892 Age 70Y 7M, wife of Daniel F. O'Regan (from Cemeteries of Albert County New Brunswick by David F. Christopher 1988)
   Daniel and Mary's weddng is not found in the "Marriage Register 1846-1887 Albert County NB" (1984 by Ken Kanner and V. "Bing" Geldart).  Their marriage is not found in the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick-Vital Statistics from Government Records (RS141).  
   You would not need a licence to run for the provincial legislature.  A liquor licence may have been required, also a licence to run a hotel, but I do not know where you could find these.  As for his occupation as a mariner, you learned the trade by being on the boat.  The O'Regans are also found in the 1851 Albert County Census for Hopewell. 
 
ORAGEN
Daniel is 34 of Irish descent, a tailor and he arrived in NB in 1836
Mary is 28 and was born in NB
Robert is 1 year old
Mary is 3 years old
Thomas Mullen is 10 and is a lodger, born in NB.      
 
I trust this information will be of some use to you.

Q20-5706 SCHOFIELD/SCHOPHIELD: Researching Martha Schofield, wife of John McGrath/McGraw/McRae. Likely date of birth: 1807/8, possibly in England or to English parents (she is listed in 1851 census as NB native and in 1861 as English); her sons list her as born in England consistently in their US census records after they immigrate. I found a probable marriage by license for the pair in 1823 which suggests she is then living in Nelson. Her spouse is listed as a widower in 1871 census, so she likely died after 1865, the year of the youngest child listed in 1871’s birth.

I believe Isaac died before 1883 and his wife Margaret lived with her son Frank Hazen White on 19 St. David. Is there anyway to find information on Isaac and Margaret, such as when and where they (1) were married, (2) arrived in Canada, and (3) died.

Q19-5695 GREEN: My cousin and I are currently trying to locate the burial records for the Upper Parker Ridge Cemetery.  We have 2 Uncles that were buried there as infants.  They both have grave markers on them. Our concern is for the 2 graves beside them.  My very elderly Aunt has just recently told us that these unmarked graves are relatives as well Due to her lack of memory with their names we are at a loss as to who they are. They also were infants. Their graves have no markers on them.   We really have no one left that can help us with any more information. We are hoping to install grave markers with names on them if we can only determine the correct information. Preserving their place in our family.
Our Uncle graves are that of Everette and Calvin Green 0-0-46 and 0-0-47.  I live in British Columbia and find it difficult to find any more information as to where to search.  I am hoping that you may be able to offer me some suggestions.  I do not know what churches are in the area, United, Catholic.  If I had this information then I could possibly contact them directly. Any aid in this matter will be of great help.

Q19-5697 McREA: I am researching my great-great grandfather, usually recorded as Neil McRea, though sometimes as Neal McRae or McCrea. According to the information I have, he was born in Maryaechie (Miramichi?)  New Brunswick in September 1834. The US census records suggest his father was born in New Brunswick and his mother in England. 
Neil’s brother, James, was born in New Brunswick in January 1849 Both brothers emigrated to the US - Neil to Maine before 1864 when he married Bridget Meehan in Bangor. James reports a variety of dates in different censuses, but likely emigrated in 1868 or later. James claimed the family was possibly once called McGraw and that they were Catholic. I would be grateful for any information about Neil and/or James.

Q19-5700 STILWELL: I am the Stilwell genealogist for the Stilwell name across the world apart from USA. There is a very good Stilwell genealogist in Pennsylvania who covers the family name in USA. On both sides of the Atlantic there is a project going on to match the American Stilwells and the British Stilwells. All the American Stilwells can be traced back to one of two men who travelled to America before the war of independence. We would like to make contact with a Stilwell in New Brunswick as, we believe, they are descended from the American Stilwell line and travelled to Canada as they were Royalists and had to escape America in 1783. All other Canadian Stilwells can be traced to Britain (including a branch of my own personal family). As there seem to be a lot of Stilwells in St Johns I am sure that there will be one who is a member of your genealogical society, or someone who knows a Stilwell. We would be grateful if they could make contact with me and I will explain further the project that is going on.
Suffice to say that there is no money involved and we are currently just trying to gather some genealogical information between the original Stilwells in Surrey, England and one of the two American Stilwell families.

Q19-5679 APPLEBY:  My great grandfather was Charles James Appleby born 1840 and died 1933 in Lynn Mass. The random notes that I have says that he was born in Saint John, New Brunswick and came to Lynn mass with his wife Katherine B. Foster. I am told they were not married. He owned a lot of land in Lynnfield Mass as well as a mineral spring. I am told my great grandmother was half Indian so I am working on trying to find more info on her as well. She was born 1869 and died 1937. She was from Montreal. I do not know who to contact to get birth records I only know that my great grandfather had to have been somewhat successful to come here and own land. He had three children Charles Harry Appleby, Frances Catherine Appleby and Charles Irving Appleby. I do not know if Katherine foster was their birth mother or not. If you could give me any advice, I would be grateful.

Q19-5684 EGAN: I am seeking a connection in the Green Point area NB (as the name was in the 1800's) My mother who is still living said her moms name was Margaret Egan an only child of Thomas Egan and Mary Ann Hughes. Margaret was married in 1915 at the age of 30 so born in 1885.  My mom said her grandparents had a halfway house (an inn) while Margaret was growing up and that is where my grandfather met my grandmother (Margaret). My mom said Thomas came from Ireland. I don't know if I have the right Thomas but on the census from 1861 there is a child Thomas and the fathers name is Thomas in Gloucester county. There were a lot of children. They were Catholic and I believe Thomas and Mary Ann are buried at Green Point in a Catholic cemetery. Are there any Egans still in that area and I am wondering if anyone can relate to this story? I am curious to see if Thomas came from Ireland during famine times. Mom said he came from county Cork.

Q19-5691 SPRAGUE: I am working on a Mayflower Application and I thought I had a direct line established until I came to Emma Sprague that married Daniel Bunnell.  Others (more than one) that indicated Emma Sprague was the daughter of William Sprague and Elizabeth Patten.  Daughter of Emma Sprague and Daniel Bunnell was my ggg(?) grandmother. Emma Bunnell was but maybe I don't have the lineage correct.
This is what I have:
 
Emma Sprague
DOB:  1780 in Cherryfield, Washington Co, Maine.
DOD:  1864 Kings County, New Brunswick
DOM:  June 12, 1800 Sussex, N.B.
Daniel Bunnell.
DOB  1772 Newton Fairfield, Conn
Married:  New Brunswick
Death:  Jan 16, 1841 Sussex, Kings County, Canada
 
Alleged daughter of above:
Emma Bunnell
DOB:  Sussex, Kings, NB
DOD:  1878 Hampton Kings NB
Marr:  May 26, 1831 SussexVale, Kings, NB to Daniel Brown Goddard my gggrandfather. 
 
If I could access some of the entries in the Family Surnames, this would help me greatly.  Yes, I have read the spelling of Sprague does vary.  My disconnect seems to be Emma Sprague and who are her verifiable parents.

Q19-5661 HAY: I am doing a book on Ernest Hemingway, and apparently, he and Canadian engineer Lieutenant B.M. Hay took a trip together in a Vauxhall when they were both recuperating from WW 1 wounds in Italy (to visit with two nurses who were working in the field hospital in Treviso.) In his letters, Hemingway spells the name 'Hey' and says that he was an engineer and a Canadian and a good fellow. Burpee Macleod Hay's relatives may not know this connection as his name was spelled incorrectly in Hemingway's letter to his parents, but it's an interesting bit of history. Perhaps some Burpee or MacLeod cousins or family from Woodstock, New Brunswick, would like to know this story about the connection and friendship between their relative and one of the most famous authors in the world. His Attestation Paper says that he had 8 years experience as an engineer, he was born April 17, 1891, and died in Berlin in 1928 where he had been conducting business for several years.

Q19-5666 McFARLAND: I am researching my 3rd great-grandparents, William McFarland/McFarlane and Catharine Murray. William is son of Andrew McFarlane and Catherine Murrey and came with his family from Ireland in 1832 or 1833. Catherine is daughter of Charles and Jane Murray. They came from Ireland around 1825. They were in St John when some sons were born – Andrew (1845) and Charles (1843), then Alma in Albert.  1851 census has them in Albert/Harvey, which is likely where the other children were born – Irving Armour (1851) , John (1855) and Margaret (1850). I believe William’s father was brother to Andrew and King McFarlane, but haven’t been able to find proof.

Q19-5668 OSBORNE: I am looking for information on my grandfather and his twin sister. Their names are George Elmer Osborne (and later MacLeod) and "Edna J". They were born on August 14, 1917 in Saint John to Elmer Christie Osborne and Jennie Mae Hatfield. Through my own research and what little my family was willing to share with me, the twins were sent to an orphanage. George was later adopted by farmers Hector MacLeod and Margaret Morrison of Framboise, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It is unknown what happened to his sister. George eventually joined the military (Cape Breton Highlanders), fought in WW2, and married twice; the latter to my grandmother (and his cousin) Helen Ruth Osborne of Saint John. My family insists that they were not cousins, but the evidence points there.
  The 1921 Canada census has them both living at home. The family broke apart after that, with another sibling (Margaret Della) evidently moving to Massachusetts to live with her aunt. I am mostly interested in what became of this "Edna J" Osborne.

Q19-5671 SMITH: In a prior iteration of the Marco Polo archive several descendants were mentioned including Dorothy Hazel Gilbert Barwell of Sheffield. The archive is now missing Dorothy Barwell and her mother father and sisters. When I was a toddler the anchor of the Marco Polo was found off the coast of Cavendish PEI and was given to the people of New Brunswick, my grandmother Dorothy Barwell was asked to receive the anchor at the NB Museum and she was kind enough to bring me to that event.  I may have been five or six years
old at that time.  I know that there are more descendants of James Smith still alive.  I definitely would very much like any information about my past family including James Smith, Jimmy Tommy, Harry Lebaron, the Gilberts in Sheffield, William Norris Venning, Maria Hennigar etc.  Peter McDougald was a Loyalist in Saint John briefly and was given various land grants in 1783-1784, he was a soldier in the American Revolution he came from Massachusetts and Virginia and traveled through New York state, and also fought with Laura Secord in Brantford Ontario.

In the 1871 census it shows him living with an Elizabeth Martin born in New Brunswick in 1836. In 1874 when Alexander died there is no mention of her in his will. She may have died or married. How can I find out what happened to her? Also the census does not show an address only the dwelling house inhabited as 310. Alexander Martin came from Dunning in Scotland around 1840. I have researched the inquiry related to the dispute about his will.

Q19-5627 McFARLANE:  I am looking for information on Ann McFarlane Black. She was born around 1783 in County Tyrone, Ireland. She emigrated to New Brunswick around 1824 with her husband James Black and their three children, Armour, Andrew and Elizabeth. They settled in Londonderry, New Brunswick. They were Anglican. They had two more daughters in NB, Mary and Matilda. She passed in 1860. I am curious if this Ann McFarlane was of any relation to the other McFarlane/McFarland families who also settled at Londonderry. I have not been able to uncover any birth records for Ann or marriage records for her and James. I am looking for where she was born in County Tyrone and the identity of her birth family. She was around 3 years older than King McFarlane, who settled at Londonderry and also had a son named Armour. Perhaps Ann was a sister to King? Has anyone familiar with these McFarlane genealogies in Londonderry, NB, come across an Ann in your research?

She was born around 1910 and married a fellow named Ervin in 1927 in the Queens County in New Brunswick. I’m just looking for more info on my ancestry. I have three MacDonald files each a different family - Ben McDonald family of Sheffield, Sunbury County; Donald MacDonald family of Canaan Forks and Cambridge in Queens County; and Alexander MacDonald family of Wickham, Queens County. Marion Miller, Mary Jane MacDonald Miller, and an Ervin married to a Miller are not found in these three McDonald/MacDonald family histories as I have researched them. There are no Ervin - Miller marriages to be found in PANB vital statistics.
I could find nothing helpful in the databases of rootsweb.ancestry.com [1], PANB vital statistics from newspapers, Telegraph Journal provincial obituaries, the Federated Database Search, or PANB cemetery records. While these searches are less than exhaustive, there are the major databases used by me in everyday searches.

Q19-5633 MORIN: My mother's family is French Canadian from Ottawa. I am looking for information about my Grandfathers ancestors. My Grandfather's (Lucien Philias Joseph Morin 18 December 1920 – 4 July 1989). We believe that his Grandmother (Marie Zélie Gagnon birth date 6 December 1850) was indigenous because of family stories and the fact that we can not find any information about her. Pierre Morin dit Boucher is our ancestor who brought the name Morin to Canada from France in 1636. We believe that there may be other people in the family who were Metis or Indigenous, such as Marie Victoire
PELLETIER Marie Madelein Martin and Froicoise Chiasson.
My name: Chantal Muriel Musgrove born; May 27th 1982 
My Mother: Carole Gabrielle Morin born; Nov 18th 1954
I noticed by looking online that another Morin Man (also related to Pierre Morin dit Boucher) was married to a "Zoe Gagnon" born in Cacouna Quebec, they were married in 1850.

Q19-5641 RILEIGH – Angus Sidney Rileigh was my 2nd great uncle, born March 24, 1849 and died about 1884. Angus’ parents were Charles Edward Rileigh and Lavenia London of Westfield, Kings County NB.  He married Althea Smith, daughter of Warren G and Nancy Smith of Blissville, in 1876 and they had 3 children. From information in the Canada Archives publication of Post Offices and Postmasters, he was station master/post master at Hoyt Station Sunbury NB CA., appointed 4/1/1878. The office is listed as closed 2/22/1884 but gives no date of vacancy or cause of vacancy for Angus.  The office reopened 9/1/1884 with Abner Mersereau in the post master position. Family stories have Angus dying in Texas in 1884 but I have not been able to find any type of record to verify this. My question is does anyone have any insight into why he might have been there and what he might have been doing there. The best suggestion I’ve heard is that maybe this has to do with the railroad.

Q19-5644 SHAW: My great-great-grandfather Lewis Shaw was born in New Brunswick Canada in 1855. He married Pheby (or Phahy) Gilbert (or Gilbart). The issue I am having is that either he or his parents changed their name when they moved to Maine.  I have been told that Shaw was part of the name but no one knows if it was the first, middle, or last part.  Once relative thought it may have been Leshawbe or just Shawbe.

Q19-5650 WILSON: I am researching my 3rd great grandparents – Hugh Hamilton Wilson (1828 to June 29, 1874) and Mary McLaughlin (1828 to 10 February, 1884).  They came to the Kent County area (Rexton, Kingston, Richibucto) from Ireland, in the late 1840’s to 1851, as their eldest daughter was born in Kingston in 1851.   They had 5 daughters, Mary Jane 1851, Margaret Ann 1852, Sarah Elizabeth 1854, Catherine Cassandra 1857, and Wilhelmina 1860.  Hugh was a doctor/coroner, and I have first found mention of him in the area in 1853.  He had a sister Catherine who married George McAuley in 1855.  I am hoping to find a bit more info on when he arrived in the area, anything related to his medical practice, as well as any information about his family.  I have searched the NB Provincial Archives, the census’, and the Canadian Archives, and have found information validating that he was a doctor and a coroner.  However, I have not been able to find any “local” information.

Q19-5652 WISHART: I am researching the Wishart family, which was for several generations’ resident in and around Tabusinac, starting probably in the 1780s. I have established that William Wishart was born in 1786 in NB, the son of William Wishart and Charlotte Taylor, who must have married in about 1785. Despite a multitude of census reports referring to the descendants as "Scotch", I have so far failed to establish the link to Wisharts in Scotland. I would be very grateful if anyone could assist me in establishing this link.

Q18-5612 DEVARENNES: I have some info. His grandmothers name is Delia Christie (full given name Delima Mary Dite Delia) born May 4, 1910 in Bathurst. His grandfathers name is Joseph Edouard DeVarennes born September 8, 1908 in Port Elgin. Delia's father's name was Joseph Christie and her mothers name Rose Godin. We are more interested in Delia's story, because his whole life she has been a mystery, and I haven't had a hard time tracing the DeVarennes name. As for the adoption records being sealed, is there still any way to know if she has an adoption record? Even if we can't access the specific details just knowing that she was actually adopted would be a great start.

His name was William Fallis, he was the Sexton at old Trinity Church for many years. He passed away in 1875, two years before the Great Fire.

My question is; is there any Civil Records, that might contain my William Fallis?

Q18-5617 GENEALOGY HELP: In April, 2019, my husband and I will be coming to NB to do a little research. I have a small business, Fun Stuff for Genealogists, Inc., and will be attending the New England Historic & Genealogical Society's conference as a vendor. I have NB and Maine roots and have been researching heavily in these areas for many, many years and need to dig deeper and see some of the small towns which I have learned about. I am a former member of yours (it has been a few years ago) and a former president of the South Bend Area Genealogical Society at South Bend, Indiana. I was born and raised in Michigan. My father's roots are Canadian. I was at the NB archives in Fredericton but it has been many years and I have learned so much more. I wanted to let you know that I have had 30 years of genealogy research experience so I am ready for some serious digging.  Is it possible to have someone help with research when we arrive and stay in Fredericton? We will be there 5 nights. If a real person is not available, perhaps there is someone who I might communicate with by email?

Q18-5621 HAY: I am seeking help in finding the marriage record for my grandmother, Jessie Elizabeth Hay (born 2/11/1900 in Harvey, New Brunswick) to a man whose last name was Clark. We believe his first name was Earl, but are not positive. At the time she married my grandfather, her name was Jessie E. Clark. Her first husband, "Clark", died suddenly from influenza. Jessie and "Clark" were married between 1920 and 1924. We recall they were married in McAdam, New Brunswick, or possibly Tweedside. Jessie was raised Presbyterian, but told us she was a Baptist for a time, so we believe "Clark" may have been a Baptist. Jessie's parents’ names were Wesley Hay and Agnes Moffit Wood.

Q18-5624 KETCHUM: I am interested in knowing more about Frank E. Ketchum.  All that I know is that he was from New Brunswick and that as a young man he was recruited by the Western Union Telegraph Expedition, 1865-1867 (also called the Russo-American Telegraph Expedition or the Buckley Telegraph Expedition) to go to Alaska to help the effort to extend telegraph lines across the Bering Strait to Siberia, thereby connecting North America and Asia and Europe. His name is mentioned frequently throughout the expedition's surviving documents, but I can't find any biographical information. I don't know if his title as "Captain" was military or if it was specific to the expedition. I also have one source indicating that he died in Alaska near the end of the expedition.

The Chiasson family is easily tracked (except for the reason Mathilde’s father Placide left. Margaree and ended up In Rogersville. The Boucher branch is a little more clouded.  I know we are descendants of the Boucher family in Kamouraska/Riviere Ouelle/Chateau Richer area but them the onion becomes more layered.

I also cannot find any information on John's death or where he is buried? I know he married Ellen Spencer and had two sons, John and Alexander and that she remarried David Alexander Smith and had several more children.

Q18-5595 MUSTER ROLLS: I appeal to anyone knowing the location of Muster Rolls for the 84th Regiment, 2nd Battalion for the period 1 Jan 1779 to 24 June 1782. - (British, Loyalist).  It is extremely important to locate these Musters. Many of the usual and most likely repositories have been checked with negative results. Copies of the documents cannot, as yet, be found! The 2nd Battalion served during the Revolutionary War, (1775-1783), at various locations in Atlantic Canada, and during 1779-1782 five Companies served in NY and "the Carolinas" - Charleston, Wilmington, Monck's Corner, Eutaw Springs, etc. These five Companies were attached to other larger British Regiments or Units. I would greatly appreciate if you would review your records, sources and Contacts, (Historians/ Researchers/ Records Custodians, etc.). The finder of the missing Musters will certainly be "Mentioned in Dispatches" and will be a friend of mine forever! I will most willingly reciprocate data which I have accumulated regarding the 84th and Loyalist Settlers over the past 20 years.
There are many names, but some of the soldier's surnames of primary interest to me personally are: BLISS, CLARK, CONNOR, CONOLLY, CRAIG, GOSS, LEIGHTON, MacDONALD, MacLEOD, SMITH, & SUTHERLAND.
I earnestly appeal to you or anyone knowledgeable on the subject, to contact me if they have any clues or key information that will lead to positive results being achieved.

Q18-5596 NEVERS:  I am researching my 2nd Great Grandmother and the 1851 Canadian Census lists her as "Native American" - if she is an Indian how can I find out what tribe? Elizabeth Jane Nevers b. 1830 St. Johns, New Brunswick.  Thank you for any help you can provide.
 
Elizabeth Ward
e.ward-bell@sbcglobal.net
 
Q18-5596 NEVERS - answer:  The 1851 census of New Brunswick listed people by their nationality - Irish, English, Native, etc. Native simply meant "born in New Brunswick", ie, they were native to New Brunswick, as their parents were native to Ireland or the US or elsewhere. It has absolutely nothing to do with being Native American (Ancestry's indexers made that error) Native Americans were very unlikely to have been counted on the census and if they were, they would be listed as "Indian".
This is a common misconception made worse by Ancestry's transcribers.

Q18-5599 PERKINS: George Perkins, born abt. 1835-1838, believed to be son of Eliakim Sherlock Perkins & Eleanor (Jones) Perkins, appears in the 1861 census of Greenwich, Kings County with a wife named Ann, aged 20.  In the 1871 census of Greenwich, his wife is named Sophia A., & is now 29.  According to a marriage record (1899) for Sherlock’s son, Samuel A., his mother’s maiden name was Sewell.  According to the marriage record for Sherlock’s daughter, Edith Alma, (1901), her mother’s maiden name was Small.  Cannot find a marriage record for George himself circa 1860 in Kings County records, nor in “Vital Statistics from New Brunswick Newspapers,” but he may have married Ann &/or Sophia in another county.  Cannot find George’s marriage on the PANB Federated Search either. Was George’s wife either Ann Sophia or Sophia Ann and was her surname Sewell or a Small?  Or did George marry twice?   Is his wife Sophia the one who is shown as the “wife of George Perkins” who died Feb. 3, 1881 and was buried in the Adams Family Cemetery, Evandale, Greenwich Parish, Kings County?  Who were the parents of George’s wife (wives?).  Need date & place of birth of George Perkins’ wife or wives, & date(s) & place(s) of George’s marriage(s).

Q18-5600 ROSS:  My husband Brian Titus was born on Grand Manan in 1948. My grandmother was a Ross and I am working on tracing her Ross line.  Growing up I heard stories from her about our family coming from Canada and heard stories about how they settled Ross Island.  I feel I am related to Thomas Ross who drowned at sea 1804 and William Ross who was buried on Ross Island 1828.  Any information on either of these two men or family members would be so appreciated.  Or how I may obtain information would be appreciated.

Q18-5603 WHITE: I'm researching an ancestor name Jacob White. I'd like to know if you could help me find more information on him and his origins. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Here's what I know:
He was born in abt 1816
He married an Esther Dixon in about 1858.
They had at least 5 children: Fredrick, Jane "Jenny," Henry, Edmond "Edward," and Robert.
They lived in Sussex, NB - I've located their 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1891 census records.
He died on 30 Aug 1896 in Apohaqui, NB - I've located a few death notices as well as his death record. He's buried at Church of the Ascension Cemetery in Apohaqui.
His wife, Esther was born in 1828 (possibly Ireland) and died in 1906 in Kings County, NB.
Records for Jacob indicate a wide variety of origins, from France, USA, Germany, Ireland, and Holland. I believe the origin of his family was France. One census record had "Leblanc" written underneath the White surname that was listed for the family.

Q18-5604 British Home Children: Thousands of British Home Children came to New Brunswick by ship through Halifax in the 19th century.  This migration started in November 1871 when the SS Nestorian arrived with 36 children in the charge of Miss Maria Rye, followed by 100 girls and 100 boys on the SS Caspian in July 1872.  Unfortunately, ships' manifests are not available for Halifax before 1881, and so secondary sources, such as Dr. Edwin Clay's Inspections Reports have to be relied upon.  The record of these children in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island do not appear to be complete.  For example, I have about 86/200 records for those who apparently arrived on the SS Caspian.
   Niagara-on-the-Lake is where Miss Rye had her Home for distribution of children in Ontario and environs - hence our interest.  I am the VP of our local 125-year-old historical society and museum, and have recently compiled on one spreadsheet about 5,500 children brought out from Britain from 1868 to 1898, administered through the Home here in NOTL.  Library and Archives Canada has asked me to publish the material asap on our Museum's website, so that they can establish a link to it.  Although other organizations also brought children to New Brunswick - hence the "thousands" referred to above - Miss Rye was the pioneer in this work.
   We are trying to establish whether any records exist in St. John or environs (by far the largest of the home bases for these children) and whether any researcher has done work on compilation of BHCs to St. John and New Brunswick which might be available for study.  Of course, at this stage we are only interested in personal details (child name, age, place sent to, name of host, address, etc.) and not a general history, which we already have.  If you have any suggestions for furtherance of this research for New Brunswick, I would be most interested and would consider a visit this summer.  I can provide what I have for NB, NS and PEI already - on an Excel spreadsheet - at the appropriate time.
   If this topic is not well covered by the New Brunswick Genealogical Society, perhaps you could offer some suggestions as to where I should go next. I would appreciate anything you or your readership could suggest in regard to this work.

Q18-5559 BOYER - answer: which had been shared on the Facebook page of Carleton County Genealogy and Families.  A bit sloppy on my part but the intent, in a less formal Facebook posting, was to help put her on track to pursue her own original research. FYI, the book "History of Bridgewater Maine" by Annie E. Rideout was published in 1953 by Falmouth Publishing House of Manchester, Maine. It was a single edition and I was told several years ago that it was not likely to be reprinted. You might try putting out feelers for a used copy as it is extremely helpful and informative - covering early families up until 1900. As an example, I could not have helped in this Query without this as my first source.

Q18-5562 DEAN: I am doing an application for Daughters of the American Revolution on a Dean descendant. John Dean is listed, and the following Deans are listed next to John Dean: Gideon, Samuel, Henry. I know John Dean was a loyalist, Samuel married a Mabee whose father also was a loyalist. Gideon served in the Revolution from Rhode Island. Gideon Dean Sr moved to Deer Island right after the was with Henry and Samuel Dean. Gideon Dean Sr married a Mary Vickey.  Gideon Dean Jr married a McDonald and the first 3? of their children were born either in Eastport or Deer Island. I am looking for an Abigail Dean born 1823/1824, her obit says Eastport, but may be Deer Island. Parents are not listed on the obit. She moved to Maine and married Daniel Bugbee in Eastport. They made their home in Robbinson, Maine. Also living in Robbinson were Gideon Dean, Jr, and family. She may be the daughter of Henry or Samuel, not Gideon.

Q18-5564 HOLDING: My grandmother was Jean Main Holding and her father was Charles Christopher Holding who left the family and returned to England shortly after my mothers’ birth in 1895.  My mother had a brother, Harry Renrick Holding born in 1894.  Jean was a teacher in a boys school and my mother, Ethel Marguerite Holding lived with a man named "uncle Hazen" while growing up.  I don't know his relationship to Jeans family. I believe his home was in St John, N.B.  Marguerite eventually graduated from Stanstead and later from Columbia University in New York.
    At some point, mother or Jean was given a sewing box that, according to a card enclosed, said it was presented to Mrs. F.G. Andrews during a trip to Burma when she accompanied her husband who was the Captain of the sailing ship Tamandra in 1866.  The card says the Andrews were from St Andrews By the Sea.
    I don't recall hearing much about the Andrews while growing up and have not been successful in finding any information on the internet.  My only living relatives are cousins, Hudson Vipond of Montreal and his sister Susan and another cousin living in Vancouver who knows nothing about the family connection to the Andrews.
    Any information would be sincerely appreciated because the box and its many ivory sewing implements should be in a museum near the Andrews home or with any surviving family members.

Q18-5578 TAYLOR: I seek the birthplace of my great,great,Grandfather, SAMUEL TAYLOR. He was born in Durham County, Yorkshire U.K. Understand the year was 1747 (I believe).
   I require the place he was born in. A community, a town, a village, or parish. (I suspect HOUGHTON Le SPRING). I do not know who his parents were. I do not know his religious denomination. I know he emigrated to New Brunswick, Canada in mid 1760`s. He settled in SACKVILLE, Westmoreland County, New Brunswick, Canada. Believe he was a teacher. Samuel Taylor, married a Lydia Ballou in 1798, had three children.
    Henry born 1799, died 1822, another son, Samuel born 1802, died 1875, A daughter Elizabeth Eliza, born1825, died 1871. Elizabeth married an Edwin McCallum, born 1809, died 1879.  Samuel Taylor died November 28,1825, in Sackville, N.B. at age 78.  Samuel Taylor was buried in Westcock cemetery, Westmorland County, New Brunswick. I must mention, a possible connection.  A MICHAEL TAYLOR born 1720 (I believe) in Durham County, Yorkshire U.K. He was from HOUGHTON LE SPRING, also emigrated to Canada in 1764, with wife Ann Dobson and two sons. George aged 24, and Michael aged 25.  They sailed on ship ALBION from HULL Yorkshire. landed in Cumberland (now Amherst, Nova Scotia)
    I do not know where Michael Taylor and family resided in Canada, Michael Taylor died in 1799 at 79 years of age. Now the part of this story that makes me contemplate Michael Taylor was ALSO BURIED in Westcock cemetery, Westmoreland County New Brunswick.  Is it possible that there may have been a mistake in records? With difference in ages. MICHAEL was 27 years OLDER than Samuel. Could Samuel have been one of Michael`s sons? I was not successful in obtaining an Obituary or burial record for Samuel Taylor. I have been trying for months to find information on Samuel Taylor, however, have traced my great, great, Grandmother Lydia Ballou back to 1500`s (her parents were from USA.)
     I have a record that shows my great Grandfather George Taylor born 1811 died 1878. I realize that Samuel Taylor an Michael Taylor could be from different families in Durham County Yorkshire, U.K.

Q18-5579 WILSON: I have been researching my 3rd great grandparents, Hugh Hamilton Wilson (born abt 1828, came from Newtown-Limavady, Ireland, approximately 1851, died June 29 1874) and Mary McLaughlin (born abt 1828, came from Newtown-Limavady approx. 1851, died 1884).  They lived in Richibucto, and Hugh was a doctor.  They had 5 daughters.
    I have been trying to find any further information about Hugh and Mary’s life pre-Canada, but have found absolutely nothing.  I can’t find their entrance into Canada either, and they seem to just magically appear in the area, with no history.  According to the 1861 and 1871 census’, their oldest daughter, Mary Jane Wilson, was born in 1850/1851 in Kingston.  However, I can’t verify this either.   I have found information that puts Hugh in the Richibucto area as of 1853 (The New Brunswick Temperance Almanac – an advertisement in a local paper, as well as through the British North American Legislative Database).
    According to a document I read (his sister’s marriage announcement in a local paper), his parents were named John Wilson and Mary Gavin/Given – both deceased at the time of the marriage in November 1855.  No further information has been found on the parents (other than a “possible” 1841 census entry in Newtown-Limavady relating to his mother).  I have no information on who Mary McLaughlin’s parents were. I live in British Columbia, and have been doing all of my research online. Do you know of anywhere specific that I could be searching, whether online or via mail?  I have wondered about where he obtained his medical education, as well as possibly trying to look into his medical licensing.  Would there be local information hidden somewhere about this family – such as through a genealogical society for Kent/Richibucto?  Given he was a doctor/physical/coroner/justice of the peace, I would have hoped that there was more information available online.

Q18-5540 ANDERSON: I live in Connecticut, but my great-grandmother came from Moncton/Coverdale, New Brunswick. I am trying to find more information about her family, but am having a hard time finding resources and am hoping you can help point me in the right direction.  Her maiden name was Grace Anderson and she was born in May 1896 to William and Martha Anderson. I can find them on a few census records and found William's death record. They were originally in Albert County and in later years moved into Moncton, which is Westmorland County.   I spent a lot of time with her when I was a child and she mentioned that there had been a fire and her original birth certificate was lost. Was there a fire that destroyed records in Albert County and that's why I'm having a hard time finding information from 1850-1920?

Q18-5541 DICKINSON: I am a member of the Victorian Genealogical Society in Australia. I have traced a person I am seeking who was Frank DICKINSON of the 2nd Royal Canadian Regiment A company who I am given to believe may have came from Fredericton (based upon his army unit location).  Turning to the reason now for this email.  At the end of May 2017, a Boer War memorial was unveiled in Canberra by the Governor General. It featured four mounted troopers.  What stood out was one trooper amid the display of Victoria Cross recipients.  He was James ROGERS - an Australian Light Horse solder seconded to the South African Constabulary. Originally only military were entitled to be awarded the VC but there have been changes to that. He received that honour in rescuing Frank DICKINSON and two others under fire. DICKINSON I now find was actually a Canadian. So essentially a Victoria Cross was awarded to a 'policeman' for saving the life of another 'policeman'.  I am much aware of the military role style of the South African Constabulary and their role at the time. I do fully appreciate you may not be able to assist me directly.  I would like to find some more about DICKINSON before my article about these two men gets published in the International Police Association magazine. Ultimately it would be great to link up the grand daughter of James ROGERS with the descendants of Frank DICKINSON

Q18-5546 LOUNSBURY: I have been searching everywhere for a birth record or baptism record for my grandfather, Fred B Lounsbury who was born in Salisbury, Westmorland New Brunswick in 1880. Fred's parents were James and Ellen Lounsbury. I have a copy of the 1881 census which shows him and his family (spelled Lounsberry in the census). I contacted a person in New Brunswick that thought the local historical society might have a church record but could find nothing. I have also read that the Baptist Church did not typically keep records of birth (baptisms), marriage or deaths (burials) in that era. Any ideas how I might prove Fred Lounsbury's birth?

Q18-5548 MALONSON: I am writing because my paternal Grandmother, Mathilda Malonson (quite possible Mary Mathilda) was born, 10 October 1888 to parents Philip Malonson (b. 1864) and Mary Collet (b. 1871) either in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick.  My late father has one record showing she was born in Amherst, NS, though when I was a boy, that she (Mathilda Malonson) was born in Nova Scotia, but not sure where AND, not really sure if it was Nova Scotia, at all, as someone recently wrote to tell me her name is really Mary Mathilda Malonson, from New Brunswick.
  I have been looking at 1871, 1891 census records, but the clues are misleading.  For example, I found a Philip and Marie at 54 years of age, but that would invalidate the birth dates I believe are correct.
    If you have any information, I would be most appreciative.  Any birth records, even better.  I do not know if they immigrated from France or were born there.

Q18-5551 TURNER: Thomas TURNER emigrated from Milton Ernest, near Bedford, Bedfordshire, in 1831 to St. Andrews, becoming a successful merchant. Bedfordshire Historical Records Society is preparing to publish the transcripts of a substantial correspondence from the 1830s-1840s from his family to Thomas at St. Andrews. He lost his goods, and then his wife, in successive shipwrecks, and the letters, as well as including local village news, provide a lot of information about his preparations to emigrate, shipping of goods, etc. We would be happy to e-mail you a copy of the transcripts if any of your members would find them of interest. In return, we wondered if you held any information on Thomas Turner and/or his sons. I look forward to hearing from you.

Q18-5554 WILCOX: Hello, I am trying to track a friend's ancestors from New Brunswick.   Their marriage record (from Boston, MA) indicates that the groom, Herbert J. Wilcox (born in about 1853 in St. John NB) was the son of John & Jane Wilcox and the bride, Anna J. Smith (born in Bathurst in about 1853) was the daughter of John & Elizabeth Smith.   I believe I have exhausted on-line resources at this point. Is there a government department or other local resource that might be able to help get more information on these families?

Q17-5529 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.

Q17-5530 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.

Q17-5531 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.

Q17-5531 Irving - answer: This was in the “Report on Obituaries” given at the Baptist Convention held in Fredericton in August of 1878 so I believe his year of death would be 1878 as such reports were apparently given at each annual convention.
   Please note that it is not an error; the article refers to him as “Irvine”, not “Irving”.  It is only because you mention the Baltimore Baptist Church that I am assuming it is the same one.  I also found him and his family in the 1871 census which you can see on the following two websites:
http://data2.collectionscanada.ca/1871/pdf/4396319_00356.pdf - James and his wife, Eliza, at the bottom of page 15
http://data2.collectionscanada.ca/1871/pdf/4396319_00357.pdf - the names of their 9 children (at that time; may have had more later) at the top of page 16
And, yes, the name was written “Irving” in the census.

Q17-5535 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 censuses 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?

Q17-550 BANCROFT: I am looking for any information on my 3X Great Grandfather, Samuel Bancroft, along with his wife Margaret Samuel. He was a Baptist Minister in Saint John and died there in 1876.
 
Barbara Musgrave
Bmusgrave@rogers.com
 
Q17-5505 BANCROFT: Answer: PANB web-site has a Rev Samuel Bancroft (Baptist Minister) listed in 1867-68 Hutchison Directory as being in Butternut Ridge, Kings County on Canaan Road.
Provincial Archives of New Brunswick
PANB also has a land petition dated 1814 for land in Carleton County and a land grant dated 1816 for Wakefield, York County (it is now Carleton County) for a Samuel Bancroft (http://archives.gnb.ca/Search/RS686/Details.aspx?culture=en-CA&Key=8560). I think the petition and the grant are for the same land. There were two other Bancrofts in these transactions as well as several Paysons including Jonathan Payson who was the father of Sophia Payson who was my 3 x gr grandmother married to Edward Snow. Edward and two of his brothers and the Paysons lived in Granville Ferry, Annapolis County, N.S. (across the Annapolis River from Annapolis Royal). In 1814 they petitioned for land in Wakefield Parish in then York County, now Carleton County, N.B. and moved there in 1815. It would appear that the Samuel Bancroft in the land petition and the grant was also from Nova Scotia. You can get copies of the original land petition and land grant from PANB for a fee.
Another 3 x gr grandmother of mine was Matilda Bancroft ( b 1791 in Windsor, N.S. and d 1870 in Salmon River, Yarmouth County, N.S.) She was the daughter of Samuel Bancroft (1770-1826) and Phoebe Durkee (1771-1856) in Yarmouth, N.S., married in 1786 in Yarmouth. I believe that this Samuel Bancroft was also a Baptist Minister. He may well have had a son Samuel who could be yours (the time frame appears correct), but I have no info other than circumstantial that it could be.
    The Archives at Acadia University are the depository for Baptist records and may have some info about your Rev Samuel Bancroft.
    The wife of Samuel Bancroft -Phoebe Durkee was descended from Pilgrim Francis Cooke. I can't yet prove the link to me as I have a brick wall between Matilda Bancroft, her husband Rufus Kinney and their daughter Mary DeWolfe Kinney. I think the links from Matilda back to Francis Cooke are well established. In the event you find a link between your Samuel Bancroft and my Samuel Bancroft, I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

Q17-5508 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.

Q17-5510 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?

Q17-5487 BREMNER: I looking for any Bremner family members still living in NB who might have a connection to a James C F Bremner 1777 - 1825? Originally born in Banff, Scotland he emigrated to Saint John/Fredericton some time before 1808, in which year he was married to an Elizabeth Younghusband (daughter of George Younghusband, a loyalist and original grantee of Saint John. James C F Bremner was part-owner in the first steamboat to operate on the Saint John river up to Fredericton in 1816 and was also Saint John's Postmaster and Coroner.

Q17-5489 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?

Q17-5490 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.)

Q17-5491 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.

Q17-5492 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?

Q17-5493 LeBOUTHILLIER: 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 European 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.

Q17-5496 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?

Q17-5498 McKENNEY: I recently came across my grandfather’s 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.

Q17-5500 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?

Q17-5470 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, Northumberland.
    I’m just wandering why I cannot find anything for this generation. As the church burn and the registration book has been lost.

   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.

Q17-5473 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.

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.

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?

Q17-5480 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 initially buried at Wommelgem, Belgium and are now buried at Bergen-Op-Zoom Canadian Cemetery, the Netherlands.

Q17-5484 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?

Q17-5485 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.

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 until he married in 1866.  I suspect he changed his name, maybe birth date.

Q16-5450 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.

Q16-5454 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. Is there anyway you may be able to shed light on this?

For more information about the church he helped build in Magundy, the barn (if it's still around) where the church services were held prior to church construction, and where they are both from. There is going to be a Love family reunion in the Summer of 2017. Is there already genealogical information for the Love family? I am unable to be in NB as I live in Alberta, thank you so much for your help.

Q16-5458 McDONALD: My great great grandfather, James McDonald, died in New Brunswick (Shediac) circa 1875.  He last appeared on the 1871 census.  His wife Fanny (Kenny) McDonald died sometime after 1901 and last appeared in the 1901 census as living in Moncton. I can find no mention of their passing in any source and am wondering if there were special arrangements for indigent persons or if certificates of death were not issued in all cases. Any help you can give me in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Q16-5463 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.

Q16-5426 FILLMORE: Answer: 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 ancestors 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 Descendancy Chart on Michael Butler's family and if you would like to have it, I will email it to you.

Q16-5419 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?

Q16-5423 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.

Q16-5424 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 parent’s 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.

Q16-5426 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?

Q16-5427 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.

Q16-5433 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).

Q16-5435 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 parent’s names. I'm really hoping to find a copy of their marriage record, which should list their parent’s names and places of birth.

Q16-5439 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 to c1866 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?

Q16-5440 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?

Q16-5441 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.

Q16-539 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.

Q16-5394 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.

Q16-5395 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.

Q16-5396 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-In Furness, 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.

Q16-5397 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?

Q16-5400 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.

Q16-5410 McLEAN/THOMPSON: Looking for the families of my great(x3)-grandparents John McLean and Esther Thompson of Bathurst, NB. John McLean was born about 1823 in PEI and married Esther Thompson about 1844 probably in NB. 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.

Q16-5417 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 were 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.

Q16-5347 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.

Q16-5370 MALCOLM corrected: Looking for information on the ancestors of Robert Malkson/Malcolm who is in the 1851 census in St. David Parish in
Charlotte County. It is believed that his father was also a Robert Malcolm and his mother was Jane Parker. According to "Pikes Notes” they arrived in New Brunswick about 1786-88 but Robert died shortly after their arrival. Jane then married William Vance. I am trying to find out where Robert and Jane came from and who is his father. I suspect he may be the son of William and Elizabeth Malcolm of Georgetown/Phippsburg, ME.

Q16-5373 McCULLOUGH/STORER: My 2nd great grandmother Ann (McCullough) Storer and her family were from Saint John. I can't find a record of them except in the 1861 Canadian census.

Q16-5374 MORRIS: Looking for information on my Gr-Grandfather Thomas Jarvis Morris' (ca. 1830 -) family. He and wife Mary Ann Kirkland (ca. 1840 - 1922) had several children including the 3 oldest Francis Elizabeth (ca. 1862 -), Leavina Jane (ca. 1875 - 1912), and Ella Nora (ca. 1877 - 1948), plus younger children Alice Mae, Isabella Clarissa, Minnie Dora, James Henry, Lillie Maude. They settled for many years in Carleton County in the Woodstock area. I have found baptism records for the younger children in a minister/parish book that was microfilmed. I am trying to find records on the 3 oldest children who may have been born in Chatham. Looking to find school records that may list these children. The school records would need to be anytime between 1870 and 1896. The family may have been members of St Paul's Church in Chatham as the father's death and youngest daughter's death were recorded by the Minister of that church. The family emigrated to Lynn, Mass. area between 1895 and 1920's.

Q16-5378 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.

Q16-5382 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.

Q16-5383 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.

Q16-5384 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 parent’s 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.

Q16-5385 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.

Q16-5386 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?

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.

Q16-5390 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.

Q16-5391-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.

Q16-E ALLEN: In 1861 Census, Westmorland, Botsford; lived my husbands’ ancestors (ALLEN [Benjamin 1835-1823] They had started maybe in the States then Botsford, down to Illinois and back to Botsford) George Allen was bn 1827-1912 mar 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 definitely Native in color.

Q16-D 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, 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.
