I also would like to find out about the Patterson's and Stewarts from the same area. My Greene Family begins with Willet Greene and my great grandfather was Rufus Greene and his wife Althea Stewart.

Surnames I am researching: Tupper/M Donald/Collins
Comments:
My great-great-grandmother was Catherine Ann(e) Tupper born in Bath, Maine between 1886-1890. Presumably her parents were James Henry Tupper and Mary Jane McDonald, both of Nova Scotia. James apparently was lost at sea when the Portland went down in 1898 (and I have found his name on the passenger list), but I can find no conclusive proof of the marriage or offspring. There seems to be two James Henry Tuppers both born in 1858 but one dying in 1898 and the other in Wisconsin in 1910. To add to the confusion both James show the same parentage of Thomas Handley Tupper and Elizabeth White. I have seen pictures of Elizabeth's headstone in Wisconsin. If anyone has any information that could clarify this, or any info on Mary Jane M Donald, I would truly appreciate an email.

Surnames I am researching: Lear
Comments:
Hi,
How are you? The US Census Records for show my great-great-grandmother, Annie B. (or Anna) Lear was born in Cornwallis in 1852. Her parents were Joseph (born about 1828) and Mary (1836) Lear, also from Cornwallis. By 1860, they had emigrated to Sutton, Massachusetts. (No room at the inns for Joseph and Mary in Cornwallis?). However, I can't find ANY records for them in Nova Scotia at all. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
Thanks,
Bob

Although Charles Skinner did not come to what is now the Maritimes until 1774 most of my ancestors of that time period [1760+] were Planter stock. Crowe was a Loyalist who settled south of Kentville, And the Dodge I am decended from I have no proof he was a recognized Loyalist---But Grandma Bank proudly said he was UEL. I like old roads of Kings Co. And I belong to the Burial Grounds Care Society-- See our web site'

Two letters were found from a Marie Cecelia AALDERS [nee LONERGAN] to her mother, Alveretta LONERGAN [married to Daniel] from Feb and Mar 1931. Marie was a patient at the time in the Kentville Sanatorium, Kentville, NS. If anyone is interested in copies of the letters, pls let me know.

As the original letters were found at the camp of someone else, they are being kept by his daughters, however, I thought someone might be interested in having a copy as a family keepsake.

Let me know,

Comments:
William Best, Esq.(1707-1782),a direct ancestor of my late husband, Henry B. M. Best (1934-2004), came on 28 July 1749 with Hopson's and Warburton's Regiments from Louisbourg to Chebuctoo (Halifax) where they joined Colonel Cornwallis and his settlers. William Best,Master Mason,and his friend John Burbidge were "Sergeants acting as foremen of artificers" repairing the damaged buildings of Louisbourg from 1746 to 1749. Their regiment had been ordered from Gibraltar to Cape Breton in October 1745. William Best was one of the founders of Halifax. He later acquired land in Cornwallis next to his friend and kinsman John Burbidge - Best's son John married Burbidge's niece Jane (Jenny). William Best and John Burbidge donated the original St John's Church at Fox Hill, Cornwallis.

Comments:
I'm trying to trace ancestry of William Chase of Lakeville, Kings Co., NS. He married Miriam Estabrooks of Sackville, NB in early 19th century and owned the tannery in Lakeville. He and Miriam are buried in the Billtown Baptist cemetery.

I am a descendant through his son Reuben, who was a shoe/boot maker and moved his family to Lynn, Massachusetts. Reuben's son and grandson were both named Omer Wellington Chase. I know that Nancy Perry is also looking for information on family line. Anybody else?

I have found that Somerset County here in Maine had a lumberman by the name of Omer Wellington Chase alive at the same time as my ancestors and have been trying to discover the link between the two families--it just seems like too much of a coincidence!

Hello
I am on a quest to complete the Benjamin ancestry records and am searching for information on my great-great-grandfather, John Benjamin born in Kings Country ABT 1810.
He left Nova Scotia and moved to Presque Isle, Maine and then on to Caribou, Maine. My grandfather,(1893 Caribou, Maine and great grandfather (1854 Presque Isle, Maine) are both named Alfred Stanley Benjamin.

I vacation in Peggy's Cove each September and also have
friends in Middleton and Wolfville areas who I visit. It
would be wonderful if you have any information that you
could share with me.

Also, I notice on-line that there is a Stephen P Benjamin who owned a lumber mill in White Rock, NS. Are there any records that state where he was born and who his parents were. His father may have been related to John
Benjamin.

Your assistance is really appreciated!!

Surnames I am researching: Taylor, Whitman
Comments:
My great-grandfather, Allister Alexander Taylor, was born in New Canaan, N.s. I am trying to find out about his family. I have found out a nice bit on the Whitman side; but nothing on the Taylor side only that my great-grandfather was born in l853 in New Canaan, N.S. My grandfather, Gilbert Taylor, was his only son. Allister was married to Lydia Whitman and when she passed away to her sister, Matilda Anne. Hoping to find out more on Allister's family.

Comments:
I have been able to confirm my Whalen family back to 1830 in Kings County but I'm unable to confirm Walton Whalen's parents because I don't have their marriage record which may have his parents listed. I believe its William Walton son of John Walton who was born in 1749 and died 24 dec 1823 and buried in the Pereau Cemetary. I also was not able to locate my Grandmother and Grandfather on the 1901 Census although they were married in Canning on 30 April 1896, were both located on the 1891 Census in Kings County and on the 1910 US Censes. Anyway it has been a delight learning about Canning, Kings County and Nova Scotia. It bring my Grandmother back to me as I feel she's with me and smiling because her Mary is seeing why she loved her Nova Scotia so much. Grandmother Charlotte was born in Port William in 1876 and died in Beverly, Massachusetts USA in 1962. She use to spend hours talking about her Nova Scotia.

My Gr.Gr. grandfather was Richard Robert Lovett Born 1808 in N. S. I believe. He came to Tynemouth Creek, N. B. to work in a shipyard and later became partners with a Parker.
Also, read the other day that there was a possibility he was a descendant of Jonathan Lovett who owned the sloop "Sally" that sailed some of the initial Grantees and settlers from New England in May 1760 to Pisiquid, N.S Looking forward to hearing from anyone who is interested in the Lovetts.

Hi,

I married a girl from Berwick I met while stationed at CFB Greenwood. Karen's (wife) farther Lambert Ogilvie's family have many anscestors buried in the Burlington Cemetery over by Harbourville. The Ogilvie name has been around the Bay for many generations. Lambert is still going strong, 83 years old, and still lives in Berwick on Foster St. Karen has two brothers buried in Burlington. Arthur died approx 1980 and James died 1999. It is amazing how much information is available on the internet but of course there are many missing pieces. I've only been playing around with this "search for the anscestors" a short while but it is fun and interesting. Thanks for the web site.

If you have a list of those resting in the Burlington Cemetery or any other information on the Ogilvies it would be appreciated.

How long have you been involved with this project? Are you enjoying it?

My great-grandfather, William Albert Greenough, settled in Nova Scotia around 1865-1875, best guess. Bought a farm on North Mountain, and raised ten children, the youngest, James Ernest was my grandfather.

There appear to be many ties back to Massachsetts, Boston area.

Any info regarding the Greenough ancestry would be appreciated.
