Found in Simmons Parish in the 1851 N B Provincial Census Records Index.
Half the family disappeared between 1834 and 1851. John’s wife, Ann Craik, their two older sons John and William’ Kid brother Andrew as well as oldest sister Nicholas who on her way to California: all are missing. However, there are Two much younger children born in the early 1840’s Thomas And Matilda.
Did the older boys decide to migrate to another part of Caaada? Or across the border to the US.Or did they goto Australia ? or may be to New Zealand? Or did the four of them die in an epidemic? I have looked in the Provincial Archives; also I’ve tried various Saint John cemeteriesand found nothing
