BERRY I'm still searching for more info re BERRY.  Besides the twins (1849) I did find a 'JAMES BERRY' listed in the 1871 Census.  He is shown as age 60, B. N.B., FCBapt., Irish, Farmer, wife SUSAN A. (which is Cameron) & then four sons listed & one dau.  I found the marr. cert. of James & Susan in 'Hampstead'.  I believe that's in Queens but not sure as I don't have this info at hand as I write this.  I would judge that this Berry family go back, perhaps to the 1700's in N.B. but I have not been able to research it beyond the parents of the twins, JAME R. & Reuben J.  I also noted that a 'James Berry' had filed for land grants  starting in 1785 in Kings County & as late as 1864 & 1865 in Carleton, but I have not yet pursued this research. Please contact Beverly Martorano April 12,

BIGGAR Walter BIGGAR, bc 1784 NB, d. 9 Aug 1858, Kings County.
Have a large amount of material on him and those of his descendants who moved to Biggar Ridge, Carleton Co., but cannot find his parents.  Racial origin depends on who was telling the tell - everything from Dutch to English to Scottish.   I favour the latter.  Some small indication the Biggars might have been Loyalist, but have found no verification.

Campbell Oct 2003 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.

GREEN Aug 2003 John Green, age 10, and William Green, age 8, were listed in the 1851 census of the Parish of Brighton, Carleton Co., N.B., living in the household of Joseph and Deborah Rideout, identified as being “under care”. My guess is that John and William Green were brothers, and that one or both of their parents may have died. When William died in 1930 in Plaster Rock, Victoria Co., his death certificate said he was born in Florenceville in 1834 (which may not be accurate for 8 in 1851 suggests he was born about 1843), and that his parents were William Green, born Florenceville, and Elisa Tompkins, born Florenceville. Searching for the parents of William Green who married Elisa (or Eliza) Tompkins, and the parents of Eliza Tompkins.

HAY -Herbert Frank Hay was my grandfather.  He was born on September 14, 1890 supposedly in Woodstock, New Brunswick.  On one document we have in the family his parents are listed as John and Josephine Hay.  On Herbert Hay's death certificate it lists Ezekial Hay as the father and Clara Adams as the mother. So this is a mystery as to who his parents truly were.  I can find no records of any Ezekial Hay to date.
Family stories say the church his birth was registered in burned down.  So there is no birth registration on file.  When it came time for Herbert to get the Old Age Pension, he had to have a family member vouch for his age. 
Family legend has it that there were 5 Hay brothers who came over from Scotland together.  One went out west and was never heard from again. 
Herbert Frank Hay married Vera Ella Dunham from Upper Queensbury.  They had nine children. 
Our family history beyond Herbert Hay is a mystery that I would love to solve!  Sherrie Hay

Phillips/Scott- My grandmother, Elizabeth (Bessie) Pearl Phillips was born September 2, 1887 in Pembroke, Carleton County.  Her parents were - father: Enoch Dow Phillips and mother : Emma Esaline Birmingham.  On January 15, 1916 she married Leonard C. Scott in Pembroke, Carleton county.  On October 18, 1943 she died in Pembroke, Carleton county.  Her first name was either Elizabeth or Bessie, her headstone shows her as Elizabeth.  I sent a query to the "Provincial Archives" and they were unable to find her records, they tell me that many vital records for Carleton County are missing.  The family were Baptist, I wonder if church records are available?  I have found her in the census as Bessie.

STEWART/SANBORN: I am trying to find the parents of Thomas William Stewart c1815-20 Jun 1882. Thomas was married to Susan Sanborn 1826-1877. Susan's parents were John Sanborn and Hannah Mayes. I have been unable to locate the families of John and Hannah. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Angela

Sunder - I am searching for a  photograph of a Lt.-Col. Sunder, who lived in Woodstock from c. 1900-1930. He was an Anglo-Indian doctor in the British Army in India and retired to Woodstock, where his home is now a historical site. My Mum used to visit him in the 1920s and remembers him as the archetypal British Colonel, big white mustache and all.  He married into my Mum's family, the Sharpes, who seem to have headed to Massachusetts in the 1930s, though we hope to see if any stayed behind in New Brunswick. Thank you - John Lockwood
SWIM - I am looking for the parents of my great-great-grandmother SUSAN JANE SWIM. She was born in June 1830 in New Brunswick, Canada. She came to Aroostook Co., Maine in the 1840s. She married Jedidiah Estabrook in Amity, Maine on Jan. 24, 1848. I have not been able to find any Swim family members in Aroostook Co., during this time. There is a Swim family in Brighton Parish, Carleton County.

Note: A possible Swim grandfather of Susan Jane was Elijah Swim of Fredericton, York Co., and Brighton Parish, Carleton Co., New Brunswick, Canada, who had 10 sons. Elijah was married to Susan Reynolds. Elijah and his family were the only Swimm family in Carleton Co., New Brunswick, Canada in the 1851 census. Of all Elijah's sons, it's possible that Susan Jane (born June 30, 1930 in New Brunswick) could have been the daughter of either William (born 1803, married 1830), Henry (born 1804), Duncan (married 1826), or George (born 1810, married 1827). The only son of Susan Jane and her husband Jedidiah that had any of these given names, was George. However, George was also the name of one of Jedidiah's brothers. The names Susan and Jane appear several times in either the first name or middle name of the known grandchildren of Elijah Swim and his wife Susan Reynolds. A possible father for Susan Jane Swim was William who was married to Mary Jane Swim. However, they named a daughter Susan Mary, born in 1836. It seems unlikly that they would name another daughter Susan; they also named a daughter Cynthia Jane, born in 1846. Another possible Swim father, Henry, had 6 sons; dates of birth unknown; no daughters known at this time. Another possible Swim father, Duncan, had only 2 children known at this time; dates of birth unknown. Another possible Swim father, George, had only 1 child known at this time; date of birth unknown. Samuel, another son of Elijah, was too young to be the father of Susan Jane. However, he did name a daughter Susan M. and another daughter Amanda Jane. James, another son of Elijah, was also too young to be the father of Susan Jane. However, he did name a daughter Amelia Jane. The other sons of Elijah could not be the father of Susan Jane because they either died young, were too young to be her father, or never married.

 I appreciate any help in finding Susan Jane's Swim family. Thanks, Barbara Estabrook (

TAYLOR - Alexander - cannot locate any information on Alexander Taylor (g grandfather)  He married Katherine Houghton and had 6 children.  Katherine is buried in Forest City as well as her parents but I don't know if Alexander is buried there.  She remarried in 1915 so I assume that he was dead at that time.  k Pearl Boone(Charles) of Woodstock was one daughter.  Gary Demerchant
