I am trying to find information on the parents, siblings and place of birth of Samuel A PYNE born c1838 in the "United States."
He m/1 J. SHORTEN in Halifax, NS Canada in 1865. The information provided on the marriage registration was as follows:
Name: Samuel A PYNE Age: 28 Born: United States Occupation: Boilermaker Address: HMS Duncan Parents: Michael (a Blacksmith)and Mary
The HMS DUNCAN was a Royal Navy ship that was stationed on the North America & West Indies Station from 1860-1868. There were several marriages performed at the same time in which the grooms were residents of the DUNCAN. Nearly all the other grooms were born England.
SHORTEN died in 1868. He m/2 M. LOBAN in 1871 and moved to New Brunswick Canada where he died in 1878.
I've been stuck on PYNE for some time and would welcome any and all suggestions.
