Q22-5840-GRAHAM:  I am looking for any information regarding the birth family of my 2x great grandmother Margaret Graham (parents/ siblings/ where they originated from)
She was born in or around 1811 in Kent County New Brunswick. She had at least one brother William. This I know as I have a photo of him and is identified her brother. She was married in 1836 to John Moss Wathen. Rev R Williams performed the marriage ceremony. This wedding was announced in the The Gleaner and Northumberland Schediasma on Mar 15, 1836. It states that Margaret was from Richibucto. Her children are Elizabeth (Lizzie) Wathen born Feb 14, 1839 (married Joseph Bacon Williston), William T Wathen born Jan 10, 1844, Sylvester Trinder Wathen, born Jan 13, 1846, Abram (Abe) Wathen born on Oct 26, 1848 (married Carrie Evalin Brown), and James Neales Wathen born Aug 8, 1851 (married Alice Elizabeth McKechnie). She died on Sept 26, 1854 at the age of 42. She is buried in the Protestant Cemetery in Richibucto. I have been unable to find any information regarding Margaret's birth family (mother, father, other siblings besides William)

Thank you,

Q22-5839-RYDER-HERRINGTON: 1786 land petition of Joseph Herrington says he has moved to lot 37 Greenwich of his late father-in-law Ebenezer Rider to take charge of the children and is now petitioning for land nearby. He has received land elsewhere along with 28 other petitioners but this is not to his liking. He would appear to be married to Mercey Rider. Joseph Herrington probate record for 1827 grants administration to Daniel Herrington among others.
Does someone know if Joseph Herrington’s son Daniel is the one married to Elizabeth Bunnel (m. 1805)? I am trying to find evidence of the parents of Daniel G Herrington, old settler. Baptist, farmed in Salisbury, born 1822 birthplace listed on his daughter’s birth certificate as Long Reach who married Mary Matilda Phillips. Was Daniel G Herrington the son of Daniel Herrington and Elizabeth Bunnell?
