I'm looking for pre-1868 information on John Campbell.  Somewhere around 1868-70 he married Susan Shaw and they lived in Carleton County until 1882 when John died (suicide) in Windsor NB.  A Carleton Sentinel article says that he came from the lower St. John area and census' have indicated that he was born in Nova Scotia of Scottish descent.  Family lore says born in Scotland but that's only hearsay at this point.
After John died some of his children ended up in Maine and Massachusetts, don't have any idea what happened to Susan, if she remarried or not.  His son Archie married Minnie Sewell and lived in several Aroostook County towns until about 1920 when he moved his family to East Corinth, Maine.

I lost track of my Great Grandfather William Isaac Doherty any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Below some information about my Bell family.
Erastus James Doherty, d. 1945, Carleton Co., NB (Provincial Archives death index)
Erastus Doherty married Katie Good in 1920 in Carleton Co., NB. (Provincial Archives marriage index)
William Isaac Doherty, b. 1900, Carleton Co., NB, son of Erastus James Doherty and Janet Armiena Bell. (Provincial Archives birth index)
1871 census - Aberdeen, Carleton Co., NB:
Isaac Dougherty, 44, b. Ireland, Church of England, Farmer
Hannah, wife, 32, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Benjamin, son, 10, b. NB, Ch. of E., at school
Thomas, son, 6, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Annie, dau., 3, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Erastus, son, 1, b. NB, Ch. of E.

1881 - Aberdeen, Carleton Co., NB:
Isaac Dougherty, 54, b. Ireland, Ch. of E., Farmer
Hannah, wife, 42, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Thomas, son, 20, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Benjamin, son, 16, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Annie, dau., 13, b. NB, Ch. of E.
James, son, 10, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Richard, son, 8, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Lucy, dau., 6, b. NB, Ch. of E.
Minnie, dau., b. May, NB, Ch. of E.

Evidently Erastus dropped his first name and was using his middle name "James" for the above census. Ten years later he was back to using his first name again, but just dropped the "E".

1891 census - Aberdeen, Carleton Co., NB:
Isaac Dougherty, 65, b. Ireland, both parents b. Ireland, Church of England, Farmer.
Hannah, wife, 51, b. NB, both parents b. NB, Ch. of E.
Rastus, son, 21, b. NB
Richard, son, 18, b. NB
Lucy, dau., 16, b. NB
Minnie, dau., 10, b. NB

Lucy Maria Doherty, b. 1874 in Carleton Co.,NB, daughter of Isaac Doherty and Hanna Maria Segee. (Provincial Archives birth index)

I looked for Isaac and family in the 1851 census for Carleton County but didn't find them. I couldn't find Isaac in the 1901 census either, but several of his kids were there, married with families of their own. Susan Wyllie found Erastus' mother, Hannah Segee, in the 1851 census for Lincoln, Sunbury Co., NB with her parents and family.

1851 census - Lincoln, Sunbury Co., NB:
Thomas SEGEE, 41, b. 1810 in NB, American ancestry, Farmer
Margaret, wife, 38, b. 1813 in Ireland, came to NB in Nov. 1836
Lucy, dau., 19, b. 1832 in NB
Thomas W., son, 17, b. 1834 in NB
Henry A., son, 14, b. 1837 in NB
Hannah, dau., 12, b. 1839 in NB
Charlotte, dau., 8, b. 1843 in NB
Louisa, dau., 6, b. 1845 in NB
William, son, 4, b. 1847 in NB
Oliver, son, 2, b. 1849 in NB
John SEGEE, 22, b. 1929 in NB, Farmer
Rachel SEGEE, wife of John, 19, b. 1832 in NB

There was a Loyalist, John Segee, b. 1763, d. 1835, married Hannah Elston in 1783. He and his father Jacob Segee came originally from Maryland in the U.S. They emigrated to New Brunswick after the Revolution and settled in Sunbury Co. Thomas Segee above may be a child of John's and may have named his daughter Hannah after his mother.

The York County, New Brunswick Marriage records show Isaac Dougherty of Fredericton and Hannah Marie Segee of Fredericton being married on 19 July 1859 in Fredericton. Wit Henry Bradford Segee & Sophie Amanda Thomas. The 1861 Census for "Kings Ward" in Fredericton, York County has: Doherty, Isaac age 32 b. Ireland - General Labourer Doherty, Hannah age 23 b. New Brunswick Doherty, Thomas H - son age 1 Isaac and his family were living next door to Thomas Segee, age 27 and his wife Elizabeth age 25 and 3 year old daughter Elizabeth in Fredericton.

In the Glassville/ Aberdeen Carleton County News March, 1893 - a history of Glassville is given and states in part " And Isaac Doherty, Thomas Doherty and Joseph Doherty, with wives and families came from Richmond. [ This is probably Richmond, just outside Woodstock in Carleton County where they may have resided after coming up river from Fredericton.

In the Baptist Church Cemetery in Glassville, Hannah Doherty, wife of Isaac
1840 - 1910. Isaac is not listed. In the Maine Marriage Records on line [ 1892-1960+ ] dated Sunday 27 June,

Alexander My Grandfather was born in Centreville, (Wilmot Parish/Carlton Co.), in 1877.  His parents were John E. Alexander - (Bn 24 May 1850), & his mother was Jane (Brutt) - (Bn 14 Dec 1854) both in NB.  John and Jane were married 8 July 1875, by Joseph G. Harvey, Baptist minister. (PANB, Carleton Co. Marriage Records, book B, page 395)...
John and Jane had 3 children: 
My grandfather: Byron Clarence (bn 5 Nov 1877),
his brother: William R. (bn 2 April 1880),
and his sister Eva M. (Geneva?), (bn 17 April 1886)...
Johns parents:  David Alexander - (bn 1813, in Scotland), and his mother: Elizabeth (Stickney) - (bn 1814, in NB)..  David and Elizabeth had 8 children, all born in NB:
Amelia (bn 1833) she married Solomon Kitchen on 17 April 1856, in NB.
George (bn 1835)
William (bn 1837)
Richard (bn 1839)
Jane (bn 1841)
John (bn 1850)
James (bn 1865)
John (bn 1870)
Thomas (bn 1876)
David Alexander entered colony in June of 1832,
-- I haven't been able to discover which ship he arrived on, or where it may have set sail from (of course other than Scotland).  If you have any idea where I may find this information, please, please forward it to me; I would be truly grateful!  What I'm discovering: Lots of records for later than 1832, and a few before, but none for that year... )
David Alexander died in NB, on 4 Dec 1889, (76yrs)
Elizabeth (Stickney) Alexander also died in NB, on 19 Oct 1892, (78yrs)
Both are buried at the Jacksontown Cemetery. 
I have pictures of their headstones, (and quite a few other relatives also), if you are interested, I'd be more than happy to e-mail them.
Now, to the other end of this journey:  Byron Alexander (John and Jane's son; my grandfather), married Elsie Teager, together they had my father, Clyde Byron Alexander, (bn 10 Dec 1907, in Bremerton Washington).

Eastabrooks / Skaarup

1) Eastabrooks: My mother's Flemish side in Carleton County.
- 1816 Ebenezer Estabrooks purchased a farm in Jacksontown, Parish of Wakefield, Carleton County.  This would be my great-great-great grand father.  His family members continued to live in the area including Avondale (Joseph - early 1900's), Waterville (Walter - early 1900's) and presently Wilmot (Bernard).  His father Elijah came to Gagetown, NB in 1785. A Joseph Estabrooks first arrived in in Boston in 1660.  One hundred years later in the winter of 1761-1762 Ebenezer's father (my grandfather 5 times removed) Elijah Estabrooks made a snowshoe journey from Maine through to the St. John River around Ormocto.  He was the first of our Estabrook line to settle in NB on October 18, 1765. Details of this family history can be found in the book 'Ticonderoga Soldier, Elijah Estabrooks Journal 1758-1760: A New England Soldier in the French and Indian War' by Hal Skaarup. ISBN: 0-595-16946-5
Technically, 1816 is the first year an (Ebenezer) Estabrook lived in Carleton County.  (1660's Boston; 1759 Halifax; 1785 Fredericton area: 1816 Jacksontown, Carleton County).  I am told that at one time a reference was made of Estabrook mountain from among the various hills and mountains in Jacksontown.

(2) Skaarup: My father's Danish side in Carleton County.
 - 1930's  Frederick Skaarup senior purchased a farm in River-de-Chute, NB which was passed to his oldest son also Frederick.  In 1939 Fred senior then purchased another farm in Charelston, NB which eventually passed to Aage and Carl.  Aage Skaarup continues to live at Mt. Delight Farms.  Grandfather Fred originally immigrated to Canada from Denmark in the early 1920's and first settled in New Denmark, NB. More details of the family history can be found in the book 'New Brunswick Hussar: Corporal Harold Jorgen Skaarup' ISBN: 0595190464.  This was also writter by Harold Skaarup. Both grandfathers fought against each other in the first world war and later ended up living on farms next to each other. Later during the second world war my uncle Harold was killed and his name can be found on the Woodstock cenotaph.
Please free to email me for any questions.
A third book __references a world war one diary that was kept by Walter Ray Estabrooks of Wilmot, NB (1889 - 1980's born and buried in Waterville, NB).
The book is called 'Whiz-Bangs and Woolly Bears' ISBN: 0-595-09883-5 by Hal Skaarup.  The Whiz-Bang connection relates to grandfathers' artillery experience during the war.  He faced the same Whiz Bang 77mm type gun as is on display at the Woodstock Cenotaph. The author offers a short background.
"Whiz-Bangs and Woolly Bears is a story about a soldier of the Great War and his experiences as an artillery gunner in France. I used to listen carefully to his stories while we worked on his farm in Carleton County, New Brunswick. He had kept a diary during the war, and I later had a chance to look at it.
The short entries did not begin to describe the horrors of the Western Front in 1917 and 1918. As I grew older, I began to write him to ask about the details. He responded to questions about major battles in this example: "Passchendaele was just one glorious mudhole. We were there 42 days. Kept 24 men on the guns and lost 42 in the time, an average of one a day." This is the essence of what Whiz Bangs and Woolly Bears is about. It is a running discourse between a grandfather, Walter Ray Estabrooks and his grandson Hal Skaarup ...
Although the story is essentially about Walter Estabrooks and his experiences during the Great War, it is also about the fact that he lived to tell the tale. So many did not. (Hal Skaarup)

Amendment to April 9, 2002 Query
Hi again!
I am so terribly SORRY to all you! I made a snap judgement on Sarah Jane Price. She is NOT my GGrammy! Their was two of them in Carleton.  My Sarah's Father is Coke Price. I wanted to let everyone know. I am so very sorry. I did find my Sarah, she is buried in York County. I have not found my GGranddad Elroy "Elby" Donnelly though. Sarah Jane "Jennie" Price-Donnelly died at a early age, leaving very young children at home.
GGranddad Elby is still a mystery. I  have searched for months. GGranddad Elby went to Doaktown after her death and after that there is no trace of him. He was the oldest of my many siblings too. Does this ring a bell with anyone out there? I believe he remarried around 1920's or so. I would so appreciate a small lead of any kind. Thank you in advance! I wish everyone Good Luck in there searches too.
Colleen Donnelly.

Woodstock & Knowlesville Towns
I have hit deadends looking for my GGrandparents. My GGranddad came from Ireland in the 1880's it is to believed. I know he had my Grandfather in Woodstock in 1903. His name is Allen Elroy Donnelly. My GGrammy was born in Knowlesville and was a twin. My GGrammy's name is Sarah Jane Price and her twin is Sadie Ann. My GGranddad's name was Elby Donnelly. Now with an unique name like that you would think I would have no trouble locating something. I know am lead to believe  that it could be possible that it might be a middle name and that the last name could be mis-spelled. Donnelly has many spellings.  I have searched all the archives. I have searched the vital records. I have searched the northern Carleton cemetery records that have recorded. I may have to go to another county now. I am hoping to rattle someone out there before doing so. Anybody out there? Thanks! For any help!

Hovey, Allen
Hi my name is Sherry and I am trying to research my Hovey line in New Brunswick. Below you will find what information I have. If anyone can help I would sure appreciate it.
My 2Great grandfather Aarron Hovey was born 9 July 1845 in New Brunswick. I can not locate his birthplace for some reason. According to his death registration (died in BC) his parents were listed as Allin Hovey and Mary Price, yet I can only find an Allin Hovey marrying a Lydia Ann Weade on 11 Nov 1833 in York Co. New Brunswick. According to sources Lydia went by her middle name Ann as well as Mary (Maria) Ann Price. So I am so confused.
If I can locate Aarron's birth or baptism certificate then it would have the names of his parents. York Co and Carleton Co were joined until 1832 and my Hovey's were in the Wicklow Parish in Carleton. I believe they were Free Baptists.
I have a death of an Allan Hovey Deacon in the Free Baptist church for 16 October 1885 in Tracey Mills. I'm not sure if this is my Allan Hovey. Please if anyone can help I could sure use it. Even just locating Aarron's Hovey's birth or baptism record would solve the problem.
Thank you so much.

Pipe Organ
Update - Feb 2002
I have run across a reference to a Leslie H. Frazee. He probably was a voicer for F.A. Peters Organ in NB, in early 1890's. He left for Boston in 1894, to become head voicer for Jesse Woodbury, eventually starting his own company in 1910 as Kimball, Smallman & Frazee, later Frazee Organ Company { Everett Mass }. This info comes from a book "Two Centuries of American Organ Building" by William H. Barnes and Edward B. Gammons, published in1970. I picked up the book & 4 others at a recent internet listing. Still trying to track down further history on Peters & other
staff.. Any info on Peters, Peters Organ, DW Paine or Frazee appreciated { or Peters Organ Instruments }.

Pipe Organ / Baptist Church/ Woodstock
April 2001
A question not strickly related to geneaology, but it is history related. I'm looking for information relating to a pipe organ that was believed to have been in the Woodstock Baptist Church, Woodstock, NB, most likely in the early part of the 20th century. It was probably taken out of service and put in storage sometime in early 1950's. I have recently acquired most of this organ and plan on restoring a good part of it to playing condition. Any information on it's origins, installation, active use, photos, etc would be  greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: Since my last note have started cleaning work on organ and pipechests. Now think that organ was last repaired / update around 1964 and placed in storage approx early '70s. I have also discovered that original parts of organ were made by F.A. Peters, Organbuilder, St. John NB in 1893. Apparently he ran an organ building firm there from approx 1883 { with Paine }. Any information on F.A. Peters, Paine / Peter Organ greatly appreciated.
