5. Samuel Albro (John3, John2, John1) was born at Portsmouth 10 October 1716.
He married (1) Louisa ________; married (2) Dorothy ________________ .
He and his wife probably accompanied their sons Samuel and William to Newport, N.S. in 1760 when Newport Township was established.
Samuel died of smallpox 13 September 1775 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
6. i Samuel, b. ca 1738North Kingstown, R.I.; d. 9/10 Dec1791 at Halifax, NS; he was one of the original grantees at Newport, N.S. in 1761. + ii William, dates of birth and death unknown; he was one of the original grantees at Newport Township in 1761; he returned to New England by 1772. The 1782 census of North Kingstown, R.I. show a William Albro with a family of 11, counting himself. --- Most of this information comes from the Falmouth Township book by John V.Duncanson.
My interest in the Albro line comes from a question in my Dodge ancestry.
1. David Dodge was born 15 July 1719 in Block Island, Newport County, Rhode Island, the son of David Britain and Rebecca (Yeomans) Dodge. He died in 1784 in Horton Township, Kings County, Nova Scotia.
He married Frances ______. She was born before 1723, probably in Block Island. She died after 11 Dec 1785 in Colchester, Connecticut ?. The History of Kings County states "after her husband's death, she returned to Colchester, [Connecticut] with two of her sons, David and Asa".
Was her maiden name Albro? Several of her grandchildren ended up being named Albro Dodge. Any help solving this mystery would be greatly appreciated.
