I have a Magdalena Fleet (usually listed as "Laney" although in one census its "Lenna), child of George Fleet and Phebe Merritt or Merrill, born in Nova Scotia in 1844-5. Her parents are also listed as born in Nova Scotia (on Laney's death rec & census recs). She died 1892 in Chelsea, Massachusetts. I believe she immigrated from Cornwallis, NS to Boston in 1863 on the Elsinore.
InJanuary 1865 Laney married John L. Wilson, a mariner with British parents who was born in Athens, Greece. They had at least 3 children: Annie Frances, Phebe Maria, and George H.
I'm totally stuck on her parents, George and Pheobe Merritt/Merrill! They might have lived in Annapolis, NS as I found a George on a census record there.
Most postings on Nova Scotia Fleets seem to be more recent so i was hoping somebody might have info that goes further back or have similar family names... desperate! Thanks :)
