Sorry I have several Jameses but none fit yours. But I thought you might be interested in the following letter I received from Francis Ahearn Larter. She mentioned several NB connections. She was quite old then and may have passed on by now.
Most info on this family from Frances (Ahern) Larter Of Alberton, PEI. She reported that this family had twelve sons, some of whom died young. Her letter of March15, 1994 to me:
Dear Mr. O'Connor Thank you so very much for sending me the history of my father's family. I had never seen this one before. My grandparents on my father's side were Michael Ahearn(sic) and Ann McNeil. She was born in Miscouche PEI. I remember; Uncle Michael - He lived and died in Boston. Uncle Joseph was a conductor on a train from Moncton to Cambleton, NB for years. - lived and died in Moncton. His wife's name was Annie Gautier Uncle John married Rose Burke from Alma - Had six sons - all deceased. Uncle Aneas lived on the old farm on the Birch Grove [Between Kildare and Montrose, Lot 3 PEI]. Had two daughters -(both living) . His wife was Sophie Wedge - He ands his wife are both gone. Uncle Emmanuel - was a policeman - lived & married in Moncton - His wife's name was Nellie Landry - Idon't know if his chidren are living.
These were all of the family - I know some died in infancy or at an young age. There was an Augustine Ahearn who lived on the corner of Hardy Road and Birch Grove - He was married to a Mary Lynch - and was in the first World War. He was a first cousin of my father Peter Nicholas [Ahearn] - they had no children - I think his father was Peter. He had a sister I know of who married Dan Gavin they lived on the Birch Grove Road near my grandfather.(The sister's name was Sarah Jane). I remember all these people because I used to spend a week of my school vacation every year at my grandfather's. Please excuse this writing- I am 85 years old - and the last living member of my father's family. He - by the way married Mary Mcdougal from the Rourke road. I thank you again Mr O'Connor for sending me this family history. Sincerely, May God Bless you. Frances Ahern (sic) Larter
